Devin Askew of Santa Ana Mater Dei and TJ Wainwright of Santa Monica are going to leave basketball fans bewildered whenever they play against each other.

They are sophomore guards with the same frazzy hair who look like they could be brothers.

Askew is 6-foot-2, Wainwright 6-0.

CENTRAL LEAGUE

Wilson High officials have informed the City Section that their football team intends to play Eagle Rock on Friday at Wilson after a player boycott threat on Thursday raised questions about whether the game would take place.

An Instagram post by a Wilson player on Thursday got the attention of City Section and Los Angeles Unified School District officials: “Tomorrow the Wilson varsity team will not be playing in our game against Eagle Rock. We are boycotting the game along with our coaches.”

The players were upset that two volunteer assistant coaches have been prevented from coaching by the LAUSD after it was learned they had yet to complete a state-required background check, City Section Commissioner John Aguirre said.

Lindon Crow, who guided Panorama City St. Genevieve to a 1978 Southern Section football championship, starred for USC and was a starting defensive back for the New York Giants in the 1958 NFL title game known as the “greatest game ever played,” died on Thursday in Exeter, Calif., his wife Sandy, said. He was 85.

Crow had suffered three strokes and had been bedridden in recent months.

Crow played professional football for 10 seasons, including for the Rams, after attending USC. He was a three-time Pro Bowl selection at cornerback. He played for the Chicago Cardinals, New York Giants and the Rams. He led the league with 11 interceptions in 1956 when he made the Associated Press’ All-Pro second team and finished his career with 23 interceptions.
