Upper Dublin has gotten off to good starts in its history. But nothing like this. Nothing like opening a season by beating Central Bucks West for only the second time in school history. Nothing like getting off to an 8-0 start and having every district-playoff bound Class AAAA school begin looking over their shoulders at the Cardinals.
It came in a blink. Chris Martin spotted a flash of white out of the corner of his eye and the St. Joseph’s Prep quarterback promptly darted the ball in that direction.
There’s going to be another quarterback playing in the huge Catholic League Class AAAA showdown Friday at 7 p.m. when La Salle hosts arch rival St. Joe’s Prep at Plymouth Whitemarsh High School.
When Rick Stroup applied for the Penncrest coaching job a few years back, his most ardent endorsement came from Garnet Valley coach Mike Ricci.
They knew them. Or at least they thought they knew them. They would see them every day in Coatesville High School walking in the halls, talking between periods. They were there with them last December, there at Hershey Park Stadium to support them when they played in the PIAA state championship.
They go back together to the “sowing room” days, back to the bleak times when they shared a two-year 1-and-22 stretch and nothing was going right. It’s when Haverford High School head coach Joe Gallagher and assistant coach Justin Mellor would retreat to the sowing room because it had the best white board in the school at that time and they had to draw up new plays.
Coatesville once again tops the Southeastern PA high school football Top Ten.
Albie Crosby would like to hit the delete button in his memory and forget what happened nine months ago. And the Imhotep Charter coach has, for the most part. Crosby can’t remember the score, but he can recall his Panthers losing to Wyomissing in the PIAA Class AA state semifinals.
Jerry Lanier is one of those hidden treasures. The 5-foot-10, 180-pound Academy Park senior tailback needed a little tough love to get going his junior year,
If Coatesville stellar senior Daquan Worley had his choice, he’ll be a cornerback when he arrives at Penn State next summer. In the meantime, the Penn State-commit continues to do something he’s been doing since he first touched a football, and that’s running through defenses and scoring touchdowns.
If it were up to St. Joseph’s Prep coach Gabe Infante, his first three nonleague opponents would be Alabama, the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers. Infante believes in having his teams play perfect, and if not perfect, pretty darn close to it. So to get there, he’s devised a national schedule that he feels will more than prepare his team for the Philadelphia Catholic League Class AAAA season and possibly beyond.
There is a little misconception that continues about Pennsylvania high school football that the best talent and better teams are located on the western side of the state.
It’s August and already St. Joseph’s Prep coach Gabe Infante is up against an unwinnable battle: It will hard keeping his team from wandering onto websites, Twitter and text feeds, chat rooms and Facebook pages without reading all of the good things that are expected from the Hawks this season.

Matt Galambos doesn’t really consider himself anything miraculous. He was too young to realize the tattered world around him. When portly Matt would plunk himself down on the sofa and eat junk food all day watching TV. When he stayed up as long as he wanted. When he did whatever he wanted.
