Sorry, folks, but the PIAA football issue at hand is not about possibly creating a playoff system that separates public and private schools. That division, as we all know, might never be seriously discussed. What's on the table now is a proposal to expand the PIAA football playoffs from four to six classifications.

"It's really in the infancy stage at this point," said Michael A. Barber, District 1's chairman.

It's the shoes. That's the first thing you notice about the Neumann-Goretti girls' basketball team during warm-ups. They are orange Nikes. And quite a few of the players have socks that match. Then there's the height. That's the second thing you can't miss. The Saints have six players 5-foot-11 or taller, with 6-5 Christina Aborowa and 6-9 Felicia Aiyeotan providing the exclamation point.
