A new ritual popped up late this season at Palmdale High: As players charged onto the field before a football game, they were greeted by Principal Linda Janzen, who flashed them the victory sign while wearing jersey No. 78. The ritual represented more than school spirit. It was created by Janzen after three players were charged with misdemeanor battery in connection with an on-field attack of two game officials during a game against Saugus High on Oct. 20.
