As Jack Crawford entered his teen years in London, basketball ranked as his first love. Growing at a rate that would get him to his current 6-foot-5, he dreamed of being the English version of LeBron James or Kobe Bryant. But a few months after he came to the United States to play basketball at St. Augustine Prep in South Jersey, Crawford saw the 2006 BCS championship game between Southern Cal and Texas, and his focus began to change. "It looked fun. It looked intense," Crawford said yesterday at Penn State's football media day. "Then I went to an Eagles preseason game, which I thought was huge.

Penn State quarterback Daryll Clark and defensive end Aaron Maybin were named Big Ten players of the week yesterday for their performances in the Lions' 48-7 win over Wisconsin. Clark threw for a career-high 244 yards and a touchdown on 16-of-25 passing and rushed for two TDs in earning offensive-player-of-the-week honors. Maybin, who had six tackles, 3 1/2 tackles for loss, a sack and two forced fumbles, shared defensive-player-of-the-week honors with Minnesota's Willie VanDeSteeg.

They started the season in depth-chart purgatory. They may still be far from heaven. But Aaron Maybin and Navorro Bowman are two of the main reasons Penn State is perched outside the pearly gates - three games and a little luck away from playing for the national championship. And the two redshirt sophomores have each other to thank for their - and Penn State's - ascension from the netherworld. Best friends, roommates and fellow defensive players, Maybin and Bowman are two talents who could not be contained by their past transgressions or the Lions' old-school hierarchy.

Rest and rehab weren't enough to get Greg Jennings back onto the field. The Packers' No. 1 receiver will have surgery Tuesday to repair a torn abdominal muscle that has kept him out for most of the season. He would not put a timetable on his return, but said recovery from the 20- to 25-minute outpatient procedure is not season-ending. "Honestly, I'm over being bummed about it. That took place three, four weeks ago," Jennings said Thursday. "It is what it is. I need to take care of it to 100 percent, and that's the process I'm taking.

A day earlier than expected, Joe Paterno returned to work, one week after undergoing hip-replacement surgery. The Penn State football coach attended a team meeting Sunday evening after the Nittany Lions returned from the Thanksgiving break, according to team spokesman Jeff Nelson. Paterno, 81, was released from the Centre County Medical Center on Nov. 25 after the surgery was deemed a success. The team said he had already begun preparations for Penn State's bowl game last week.

Apparently, one season was enough. Penn State defensive end Aaron Maybin will declare himself eligible for April's NFL draft, according to multiple reports. Maybin informed coach Joe Paterno and defensive line coach Larry Johnson of his decision on Thursday. His family plans to make a formal announcement soon. A message left at the home of Mike Maybin, Aaron's father, was not returned yesterday. A redshirt sophomore, Maybin has two years of college eligibility remaining.

Lee Roy Selmon, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Hall of Fame defensive end who teamed with his brothers to create a dominant defensive front and lead Oklahoma to back-to-back national championships, died Sunday, two days after being hospitalized for a stroke. He was 57. A statement released on behalf of his wife, Claybra Selmon, said he died at a Tampa hospital surrounded by family members. Selmon was the No. 1 pick in the 1976 draft - the first ever selection by expansion Tampa Bay. In 1979, he won the NFL defensive player of the year award.

STATE COLLEGE - Penn State linebacker Navorro Bowman might have played his last game at Beaver Stadium on Saturday in the Nittany Lions' home finale. The redshirt junior is NFL bound - it's just a matter of when he'll make the leap. Bowman can declare for the NFL draft in mid-January, or he can play his senior year at Penn State and enter the draft next year. Bowman has not decided whether he'll stay or go, but he's certainly been mulling his options. "I've been thinking about it," Bowman said.

As expected, Penn State's Navorro Bowman excelled in the physical challenges associated with yesterday's annual Lift for Life event that raised funds for the Kidney Cancer Association. Bowman, an athletic and hard-hitting linebacker, now hopes to maneuver past off-the-field temptations and obstacles just as easily. In late April, the junior linebacker was sentenced to an additional 12 months of probation after he admitted to smoking marijuana. Bowman already was on probation after pleading guilty in May 2008 to disorderly conduct in connection with a campus fight the previous fall.

Iowa running back Shonn Greene never expected to be selected on the second day of the NFL draft, but at least he didn't have a long wait. Greene, a former Inquirer all-South Jersey selection from Winslow Township, hoped to be chosen in the first two rounds Saturday. Instead, Greene was the first player chosen in yesterday's third round by the New York Jets. The Jets traded three picks to Detroit to move into the 65th overall spot, which they used to select Greene. "It's great that they wanted to trade up to get me as the first pick in the third round," Greene said yesterday by telephone as he rode in a limousine to the Jets' practice facility.

Seven of the 32 first-round NFL draft picks were from New Jersey high schools, and Penn State defensive end Aaron Maybin became the 32d of Joe Paterno's players to be chosen in the first round. The Buffalo Bills tried to fix their offense by signing wide receiver Terrell Owens during free agency, and they addressed the defense when they used the 11th overall pick on Maybin. Buffalo finished with 24 sacks, tied with Washington for fifth fewest in the NFL. Maybin is supposed to help the rush off the edge.
