BOYS Los Angeles Loyola (26-3) at Woodland Hills Taft (24-5), Tuesday, 7 p.m. — Loyola hasn't played since losing to Lawndale Leuzinger on Feb. 26. While the Cubs try to shake off their rust in this Division I game, they'll have another obstacle to deal with: Taft guard Jordan Gathers, who was a starter for Loyola last season. "He'll probably know our play calls, so we'll have to execute," Loyola Coach Jamal Adams said. The winner is expected to take on Leuzinger in a quarterfinal game on Thursday.

UCLA got a head start on signing when linebacker Zach Whitley, cornerback Mossi Johnson and safety Rob Robinson enrolled early. Whitley, who is 6-foot-2, 222 pounds, was a highly coveted player at Galena Park (Texas) North Shore High. He was ranked among the top 10 linebackers in the nation by scouting websites. Whitley orally committed to Alabama, but the Bruins managed to lure him away. He is ranked No. 192 on the ESPN top 300 high school players list. Johnson, who is 6-1, 170, committed a year ago, but delayed his enrollment after tearing two knee ligaments in a Texas all-star game.

OPEN DIVISION Los Angeles Crenshaw (14-0) vs. Concord De La Salle (12-2), 8 p.m.: Crenshaw tailback De'Anthony Thomas has vowed to back-flip from one goal line to the other if the Cougars can become the first Los Angeles City Section team to win a bowl game. De La Salle is making its fourth consecutive bowl appearance, but the Spartans are 1-2 against their Southern California counterparts and Coach Bob Ladouceur said the familiarity of playing in Carson won't benefit his team.

With one adventurous summer trip, senior running back Jacob Knight of Los Angeles Crenshaw demonstrated more leadership than any speech he could have given and more determination than any broken-field run he could have made. He traveled to Cambridge, Mass., at the invitation of the Harvard University football coaching staff to participate in a one-day camp and campus tour, an experience that few, if any, Crenshaw players have dared to attempt. Walking on the grounds of one of America's most prestigious academic institutions, Knight contemplated what is possible.

No. 9 Los Angeles Crenshaw (7-2, 4-0) vs. No. 14 L.A. Dorsey (9-0, 4-0) at Jackie Robinson Stadium, 7 p.m. ? The top seeding for the City Section Division I playoffs will be on the line in this Coliseum League showdown between archrivals. After getting blown out twice by Crenshaw last season, Dorsey appears to possess the offensive firepower to give the Cougars a stiffer test. Quarterback Joseph Gray has passed for 28 touchdowns and the Dons have outscored league opponents by an average of 36 points.

Carson figured Michael Bercovici couldn't beat the Colts if the record-setting quarterback from Woodland Hills Taft spent most of his time on the sideline. So Carson turned to a clock-burning running game and received 100-yard performances from Dion Willis and Myles Johnson during a 40-21 victory Friday night in a City Section Division I semifinal. "We felt like if we could control the ground, we could control the game," Colts Coach Elijah Asante said. Willis ran for 108 yards and two touchdowns in 11 carries and Johnson had 109 yards in 16 carries for top-seeded Carson (11-2)

All-City running back De'Anthony Thomas of Los Angeles Crenshaw, the No. 1 college football prospect in Southern California, showed up at the City Section track and field preliminaries on Thursday at Lake Balboa Birmingham leaving little doubt about his college choice. He was wearing a cardinal and gold USC sweat top, which didn't exactly match with his blue Crenshaw attire. Thomas didn't seem to mind. He was just relieved that he had made his college decision and didn't have to hide his feelings.
