“I’m going to put guys into the game that want to play,” Mason said. “I think some of our starters need to re-evaluate their commitment to this team. “There’s been a tradition of losing at Glenn and I’m looking for players that not only want to change that but expect to.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The Gladiators are 4-0 coming off a 49-13 win over Glenn last Thursday, but Gahr coach Greg Marshall will know exactly where his team stands Friday when it plays Mayfair (3-1) at Bellflower High. “It’s our biggest test of the year and we won’t have any advantages over them,” Marshall said. “Usually, we’re faster than most teams but that won’t be the case this week. “They’re big, fast and awfully talented. But anything can happen in a game. Last year we went into the fourth quarter with them tied 0-0 before they beat us, so at least we know we can play with them.” Glenn coach Ken Mason wasn’t trying to send any mixed signals in the second half of the Eagles’ loss to Gahr last week when he practically put the entire JV team into the game. “I think we’re getting everybody’s best shot,” Lancers coach Mike Christensen said. “Mayfair played us harder than I’ve ever seen them and Cabrillo did as well. “I think in the long run, however, it’s going to pay off because we’re going to be battle tested come playoff time.” Over the past few seasons, Lakewood High’s football program has risen in prominence, and now every time the Lancers take the field, they’re getting their opponent’s best shot. Take this past Friday for instance. Lakewood had to hold on for a 34-30 win over winless Cabrillo.
