Anthony Russo will stay close to home and play for Matt Rhule at Temple, while a pair of his Archbishop Wood teammates, Mack Schwartz and Kurt Stengel, will join forces at Navy. Russo, a strong-armed quarterback; Schwartz, a hard-charging defensive end; and Stengel, a stalwart offensive tackle, signed letters of intent Wednesday afternoon in their school's auditorium. Wide receiver Mike Devlin, the son of head coach Steve Devlin, and defensive lineman Omar Peterkin also took the stage in Warminster to firm up their commitment to West Chester.

Dean Jakeman grew up around the corner from Archbishop Wood, but he never envisioned himself attending the school. Jakeman - now a junior at Father Judge - said he instead always felt a "personal rivalry" with Wood. "Wood has always been in the back of my head because I grew up 30 seconds from here, I looked at this school every day, and then I ended up going to Judge when I moved to Philly in eighth grade," Jakeman said. "But I always had something out for Wood. I always wanted to get them.

The recipe for success for the Archbishop Wood basketball team isn't complicated. Getting the ingredients to coalesce, however, has been a challenge at times. The Vikings had no such worries Friday night against La Salle in a 73-63 victory in front of a raucous home crowd. The win was the third straight for Wood (10-7, 4-5), which had lost four straight games in Catholic League play before its recent streak. The biggest difference: playing team basketball. "I think they realized that if they trust each other, trust in the system and play together, they're hard to beat," said coach John Mosco.

Archbishop Wood senior Anthony Russo, a strong-armed quarterback who drew serious recruiting interest from Louisiana State, announced his commitment to play at Temple on Saturday. The 6-foot-4, 225-pounder made his decision to play on North Broad Street a day after receiving a visit at school from LSU head coach Les Miles and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron. "I want to stay close to home and represent my city, and I'm going to recruit the best talent in Philly to do the same," Russo said.

Mike Power is no Shaquille O'Neal. And that's a good thing for Father Judge. Power made all 13 of his free-throw attempts in the fourth quarter Wednesday night as Father Judge held off Archbishop Wood, 80-71, in a Catholic League boys' basketball game. Power, who also had six assists, scored all 15 of his points in the final quarter. Marc Rodriguez scored a game-high 24 points and shot 9 for 9 from the floor. Tommy Funk scored 19 points for Archbishop Wood, which trailed by 49-32 after three quarters.

Archbishop Wood quarterback Anthony Russo has backed out of his commitment from Rutgers and reopened his recruitment, he announced Monday night on Twitter. "The past few weeks praying and sitting down with my family, we have decided that it is in my best interest to decommit from Rutgers University," the 6-foot-4, 225-pounder wrote. It is expected that new Rutgers coach Chris Ash will run a spread attack with a dual-threat QB at the controls. That likely played a part in Russo's decision.

Matiss Kulackovskis needed every inch of his 6-foot-7 frame Sunday as the Archbishop Ryan junior charged at an Archbishop Wood shooter with about 15 seconds left in a Catholic League thriller. Wood sophomore Tyree Pickron had already hit a critical three-pointer 13 seconds earlier, but with Wood trailing by two points, his right-wing three would have given the host Vikings the lead. Instead, Kulackovskis closed quickly, blocked Pickron's shot, and collected the loose ball to help ensure Ryan's come-from-behind, 62-59 victory.
