He's not naked, and he's back on the ground. Turns out a man who climbed an electrical tower in North Hollywood on Friday was not nude, as initially reported by the Los Angeles Police Department, just shirtless. And after several hours, he agreed to come down. Los Angeles police Det. Gus Villanueva said two LAPD SWAT officers were lifted by a crane to where the man was on the tower. After they offered him a blanket, he agreed to come down. Though not hurt, the man is in police custody over what, for now, is being called misdemeanor trespassing, Villanueva said.

Sophomore Dante Clay was granted unrestricted eligibility to play football at North Hollywood High this season by vote of the City Section rules committee Wednesday. Clay was thrust into the spotlight in the spring when Taft Coach Troy Starr was caught actively recruiting the promising running back, who played on Crespi's freshmen team last season. The 5-foot-10, 180-pound Clay, who visited Taft and was given a campus tour by Starr, will play Friday in North Hollywood's game against Franklin.

It was billed as a battle of the ground attack. North Hollywood features two running backs in the Valley-area City Section top 10, and the Sylmar backfield consists of cousins Sean and Michael Hampton. So, most expected an offensive show similar to an Oklahoma-Nebraska showdown. Passing was almost an afterthought for the two teams in previous games. So much for predictions and previews.

Sylmar High, a highly regarded City Section 4-A Division team, had to rely on its stingy defense to edge upstart North Hollywood, 13-7, Friday night in a Valley Pac-8 Conference opener at Sylmar. Sylmar, which annihilated El Camino Real, 55-0, a week ago, found North Hollywood--a 3-A team that was winless last season--a worthy opponent. "That's a good football team," Sylmar Coach Jeff Engilman said of North Hollywood. "They're going to win a lot of games."

He is usually the overlooked second back in North Hollywood High's double-wing backfield, but David Harlow stepped out of the shadow of teammate Dante Clay on Friday to help the visiting Huskies to a 24-14 victory over Grant in a Valley Pac-8 Conference opener. Clay rushed for a game-high 97 yards in 17 carries for North Hollywood (2-2), but Harlow rushed for 77 yards in 14 carries and scored the Huskies' first two touchdowns on runs of one and 45 yards.

Junior Natalie Stein of North Hollywood High posted a runaway victory in her qualifying heat of the City Section cross-country preliminaries at Pierce College on Wednesday, but she'll be a decided underdog in the City finals. Stein, the 1997 City champion, and defending champion Valerie Flores of San Pedro were co-favorites entering the last two City finals. But Flores has improved greatly this season while Stein has run slower in most of her races. "I'm not really sure why," Stein said.
