Since he arrived as head football coach at St. Joseph’s Prep, Gabe Infante’s goal has always been to shed a national spotlight on the program.
It is unlike anything else in the world, at least during contemporary times. Roman emperor Caligula may have had a few Wing Bowls in his day. Jamie “The Bear” McDonald certainly never experienced anything like it before last year.
Jon Squibb no longer will need to look for that edge he likes to carry around into Wing Bowl. That will be already there Friday at Wing Bowl 22 at the Wells Fargo Center, after the three-time champ lost by just five wings last year to Jamie “The Bear” McDonald, who ate 287 wings.
His beard was trimmed. His hair was pulled back. Jason Kelce wore a serious look as a bowl of hot wings was placed in front of him in the cafeteria of the NovaCare Complex Tuesday afternoon.
From the outside looking in, it all fits. Molly Schuyler normally fills her days taking her girls to dance class and her son to Cub Scouts. She’s from middle America, Bellevue, Nebraska, to be more specific, a small city with a great view of the Missouri River where former Phillie pitcher Tyler Cloyd came from.
It’s easy to ruminate and jostle around all the hypothetical ‘what ifs’ that followed the Eagles’ 10-6 NFC East title and first-round playoff ouster to the New Orleans Saints.

Georgios Papagiannis, or “George” as he’s called by those closest to him, just turned 17 in July and he already has a Wikipedia page. At 14, he attracted so much curiosity that NBA scouts traveled to Greece to see him.
Neumann-Goretti girls’ basketball coach Letty Santarelli has to turn the lights out after practice to get her team to go home. An hour after they’re finished, they’re still shooting around on their own, working on new moves, improving their game.
Around this time every two years, some area football coaches find their knees quaking a little, as the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association, or PIAA, the governing body of high school sports in the state, reclassifies its schools across the state based on student size.
A momentary smile flashed across the face of Fletcher Cox at the thought: Being in the same defense for another year.
On Thursday evening, Jan. 9, at the Drexelbrook Catering Ballroom in Drexel Hill, Delaware County, the prestigious Maxwell Football Club will host one of the top galas in the area honoring high school football, when the club presents the top 54 seniors with the Mini Max Awards.
Brandon Boykin wants to hold off for now. He doesn’t want to go proclaiming things or making more out of his 2013 season than there has to be.
He made an impact. There was no doubt about that. Once the Eagles inserted Bennie Logan in at nose guard, the team’s overall defense improved, sured up by the quick, explosive third-round draft pick out of LSU.
Evan Mathis thinks in absolutes. He doesn’t do conjecture and he rarely looks at the past. Mathis feels that attitude has kept him grounded, kept him always looking to do more. The Eagles left guard has been one of the best at his position for the last three years now.
