Football: Burton cancels varsity season to develop young talent

Football: Burton cancels varsity season to develop young talent 

By Jeremy Balan

Burton High School effectively canceled its 2012 varsity football season earlier this month, but head coach Anthony Rollins, who would be entering his fourth year at the helm of the program, has a lone message for the rest of the Academic Athletic Association.

“Don’t count us out,” Rollins said on Tuesday.

The decision by Rollins, which he admitted was embarrassing but necessary, is also a reversal of what he views as self-destructive practices of the past.

Baseball: Burton plays small ball to beat Mission and secure playoff spot

Baseball: Burton plays small ball to beat Mission and secure playoff spot 

By Jeremy Balan

Hits weren’t plentiful in the Academic Athletic Association play-in game between Burton High School and Mission on Monday at Silver Terrace Playground, so the Pumas had to get creative.

Trailing 1-0 with just one hit through three innings, Burton right fielder Thomas Tsang worked a walk, stole second base and advanced to third on a wild pitch.

Then Burton’s No. 4 hitter, Austin Perez, put a picture-perfect bunt single down the third-base line to score Tsang and shift the momentum in a 6-2 Burton win, which gives the Pumas their first playoff berth since 2008.
