PASADENA, CALIFORNIA, JANUARY 1, 2017



On January 1, 2017, Pasadena Football AKA "THE FRANCHISE" will never be the same.

To compliment our 10 Super Bowl Championships, A phenomenal induction into the Rose Bowl Hall of Fame will take place with the induction of Ricky Ervins on New Year's Day in Pasadena, California.

Mr. Ervins will be the first native from Pasadena, California to be inducted into the best sporting venue in the world - The Rose Bowl.


A year ago PASHOF asked "When" and "Why' someone from Pasadena would be inducted and, most importantly, why it hasn't happened? We even dedicated a brick at the Rose Bowl in honor of all who played, cheered and supported The Franchise.

That day has come, finally...

From his days of playing pop warner football at Victory Park, to his days of domination in that infamous Blue and Gold uniform at John Muir High School (which embodies decades of talented teammates, coaches, supporters, cheerleaders.....and competitors) to his days at USC under the No. 34 and the ultimate achievement, a Super Bowl Ring, Mr. Ervin's contribution not just to the history of football at the Rose Bowl, but his legacy as a valued, honored member of The Franchise will be forever enshrined in Pasadena, California.

To every teammate of Mr. Ervins from Pasadena, we thank you.

To every cheerleader who cheered on Mr. Ervins and his teammates, we thank you.

To every Pasadena coach who, mentored, motivated and inspired Mr. Ervins, we thank you.

To every individual in the greatest city in the world who supported football in Pasadena, in big and small ways, we thank you.

To every member of The Franchise who came before Mr. Ervins, we thank you for laying the benchmark for excellence. This kid from Pasadena, like many, made it!

And most importantly, to Mr. Ervins....we thank you for your commitment and loyalty to the sport of football. Words cannot express the humbling joy we get in knowing that Pasadena, California, has called you home.

Go, Pasadena!

In 1979,  Pasadena High School defeated Verbum Dei High School -  the number one ranked boy's basketball team in the country. The Bulldogs' reward, a  CIF Championship. The Bulldogs would later travel to Spain and win the World High School Basketball Championship. Their coach, George Terzian, was also crowned the California State Coach of the Year.  


George Terzian coached the boy's basketball program at Pasadena High School for 17 years.  Two CIF Championships and four CIF finals appearances were the results. Former NBA players Michael Cooper and Michael Holton both played and won under Mr. Terzian's leadership.


After leaving Pasadena High School in 1979, Mr. Terzian coached boy's basketball at    Pasadena  City  College - he would do so for

the next 18 years or so.   Between 1987 to 1994, and briefly in 2002, Mr. Terzian accumulated 300 wins which includes seven straight appearances in the State playoffs.  In fact, in 1982, he lead the Lancer's to a 28-8 record  - ending the season as State runner-up after losing a double overtime thriller to Cerritos College in the championship final. Local legends such as Darnell Fletcher, Dale Cook, Forest McKenzie and Chris Holden are among the many coached by Mr. Terzian.
