Week 10 is upon us. Only four (or five depending on your league set up) more weeks until playoffs, and there are some pretty good players on bye weeks this week, including the No. 1 quarterback and tight end.

If you’ve made it this far and are still in the hunt for the playoffs then congratulations. However, this is not the week to get cute and try to do something that can ultimately cost

Baltimore Ravens’ running back Ray Rice and Minnesota Vikings’ running back Adrian Peterson are just two high-profile athletes who have been in trouble this year for violations of the NFL’s code of conduct.

Though athletes’ off-the-field conduct is an issue in the media, City College coaches said they haven’t really had to deal with student athletes violating the school’s code of conduct policies.

“Generally the only things I’ve had to deal with is athletes not listening to coaches. When that happens, we just like to give them ‘positive reminders’ — extra workouts — to get them back in line,” said head wrestling Coach Dave Pacheco.

A code of conduct is a set of rules and responsibilities put in place for individuals at a particular organization. Sacramento City College has its own Student Standard of

Wrestlers typically work alone on the mat when they take on an opponent, and, to onlookers, it may appear that teamwork is not a factor in an athlete’s performance. But City College wrestling brothers Jorge and Albert Landeros consider themselves a supportive team on and off the mat.

Jorge, 22, and Albert, 19, hail from Tracy, California, and graduated from Tracy High School in 2010 and 2013, respectively.

We’re halfway through the season, which means only six more weeks until Fantasy football playoffs start. If you’re at the bottom of your league, it’s never too late to trade your way out.

I could go into a story about how I started the season 1-6 last year and traded my way to a 7-6 record and a playoff spot, but I’m not. I could also talk about how countless others are currently trying to do the same thing, but I won’t.

If there is one thing that I have learned during my time playing fantasy football, it’s that you should never second-guess yourself.

My brother Kevin is also an avid fantasy football player (though he is much better at fantasy basketball). We have been in a league together for six years now, and throughout that time he has been known to over think things and cause himself to lose. So much so, that the league has coined the term “Kev yourself,” meaning to overthink decisions based on your starting roster.

Kylee Hardy, captain of the City College women’s volleyball team, says she’s been exposed to volleyball since she was in the womb.

“I’ve been playing since I could breathe,” says Hardy.

Her mother was not only a volleyball player but also coached Hardy for her entire life, on and off the court. The day after Hardy was born, in fact, her mother took the newborn to a game she was coaching. Both of Hardy’s older sisters played volleyball at Division 1 colleges.

Hardy played at El Dorado High School as part of an all-league varsity team. She came to City College in 2012 and in 2013 received an All-Big 8 honorable mention.  The All-Big 8 honorable mention award is recognition to the players in Big-8 conference that had a good season.

“It’s kind of a big deal,” says Hardy of the honor.

Now, as a team captain, Hardy says she’s taken a few freshmen under her wing and shared with them her knowledge of the game.

Volleyball Coach Laurie Nash says Hardy is an integral part of the team.

“She genuinely cares about her teammates and wants nothing but the best for them,” says Nash.

First and foremost, it is an honor to be allowed to write about something that I love and am very passionate about: Fantasy Football. I’ve been playing fantasy football for about seven years now, and in that time I’ve played in over 20 leagues, won multiple championships and have had tons of fun along the way.

Obviously, when it comes to fantasy football, most of it is about luck (add cliché Andrew Luck pun here). However, it also takes a lot of
