VIDEO of Millikan football player kicking helmet-less Lakewood player on the ground; fight in locker room allegedly ensued

Question for CIF: When the La Canada “Icy Hot” incident with Salesian occurred, CIF argued it couldn’t suspend or penalize the Salesian player for allegedly rubbing sports creme in a La Canada’s players face because the referee’s didn’t penalize the players during the game, leaving any suspensions or discipline to the school. Eventually, Salesian’s principal apologized for the incident. Well, well, well, nobody was flagged or penalized on the field for Millikan, which obviously shows a player kicking a helpless Lakewood player on the ground, a player whose helmet had come off, no less. So again, with VIDEO in hand, will CIF step in and do something, or will this be left to the school and possibly the police department to sort out?

Tuesday update in Long Beach Press Telegram: The CIF-Southern Section, the governing body for high school sports in most of Southern California, will not be taking any action against the Millikan player, said spokesman Thom Simmons.“As no ejection of the player in question occurred, there are no current bylaws that provide the section with any authority to intercede in this matter,” Simmons said. “The two schools involved and their school district are working cooperatively to come to a mutually agreeable resolution.”

STORY: Rumors have swirled since an alleged incident on Friday night at Lakewood High after Lakewood beat Moore League rival Long Beach Millikan in football.
According to multiple anonymous reports, Lakewood parents confronted the Millikan players in the visitor locker room after the game.
Allegedly, the confrontation stemmed from a play during the game when a Millikan football player kicked Lakewood receiver Victor Bates in the face after his helmet was knocked off. Bates is verbally committed to Oregon State University.

Former San Dimas coach Bill Zernickow undefeated in Oregon

Just how good is former San Dimas football coach Bill Zernickow? At San Dimas, the master of the Wing Z contended for a CIF title virtually every season and won two championships. Zernickow, and some members of his Saints coaching staff, took a leap of faith and moved to Oregon to take on Tualatin HS, a team that was 0-9 last year. But with Billy Z in charge, Tualatin is undefeated at 4-0 and ranked eighth in the state.

Tribune Super 32 Rankings: Amat, Charter Oak, Bonita, Glendora, Northview are top 5

1. Bishop Amat (4-1)
— It would take injuries to just about every impact player for Amat to lose its grip on No. 1 in the Valley. There is no debate.
2. Charter Oak (4-1) — Everything clicked in a 28-7 victory over Glendora, and now it has a bye before opening the Hacienda with undefeated Chino.
3. Bonita (5-0) — Undefeated heading into its bye week before a mammoth Palomares league opener against undefeated Claremont.
4. Glendora (3-1) – Looked unispired and not that good against emotionally charged Charter Oak.
5. Northview (4-1) — Easy win over La Sierra, and now has a bye before getting set to defend Valle Vista league title.
6. Diamond Ranch (4-1) — Won four straight since a season-opening 7-0 loss to South Hills.
7. Diamond Bar (4-1) — Answered first loss with a solid 27-13 victory over Cypress.
8. West Covina (2-3) — Don’t look at their pre-season record, will likely come down to West Covina and Charter Oak in the Hacienda.
9. Los Altos (3-2) — In back-to-back step-up games against Glendora and Monrovia, Los Altos lost both.
10. San Dimas (2-2) — Played well for a half, then it was all Bonita in the Smudge.
The Rest: 11. Damien (2-2); 12. Pomona (3-2), 13. Arroyo (3-2), 14. Ganesha (4-1), 15. Bassett (3-1), 16. South Hills (1-4), 17. Baldwin Park (2-3); 18. Covina (2-2); 19. Mountain View (3-2), 20.
