Frankford's Omar Askia stepped to the foul line with 30 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter Thursday and allowed his mind to wander. No longer was he about to hit two crucial foul shots to help secure the Pioneers' 68-63 victory over Bartram in the Public League Class AAAA boys' basketball final. Instead, he envisioned himself back in Frankford's gym. "I was just thinking practice. If we make the foul shots, we go home," Askia said. The senior shooting guard knocked down both of those free throws and 13 seconds later added one more.

Amir Paulk's voice was low and his face was tight during an interview after the Northeast junior led the host Vikings to a 40-18 Public League Class AAAA quarterfinal win against Bartram on Friday. Head coach Phil Gormley, walking behind Paulk and heading off the field, delivered his support. "I want to thank my offensive line," Gormley prompted. "Oh, yeah," Paulk said, springing to life, "I want to thank my offensive line!" This might be his first season of high school football, but the 5-foot-7, 160-pound running back had no reason to be nervous.

Late in the regular season, Khayri Washington would not have been James Brown's top choice to try a game-deciding shot for Bartram. "He went through a pretty big slump for about two weeks," the coach said. "Luckily for us, he's been gradually working his way out of it. " Tuesday afternoon, in a Public League Class AAAA boys' basketball semifinal at Frankford, Washington calmly delivered a three-pointer with 13 seconds remaining to lift the turnover-plagued Braves to a 52-51 triumph over the hosts.

Bartram coach Jim Chapman knew this week could be rough for his Braves. After last week's heat-related postponements, Chapman's team was scheduled to play a make-up game Monday then have a quick turnaround Thursday afternoon against Public League division foe Dobbins, which didn't play Monday. Chapman, however, reached out to the Mustangs' first-year coach, Martin Baldwin, who agreed to move the game to Friday. "I didn't think it was fair for us to have a full week off and then meet them on a Thursday" after they played Monday, said Baldwin, previously an assistant coach at the school for 15 years.

Before the start of the postseason, Bartram coach Lou Biester had a message for the Maroon Wave. It was short and to the point. Win four straight games, and the Maroon Wave will defend their Public League boys' basketball championship, he said. After a 66-59 quarterfinal win yesterday at Franklin Learning Center, Bartram is halfway to that goal. The victory set up a rematch with the team Bartram beat for the crown last season, Simon Gratz. That showdown is scheduled for Feb. 29 at La Salle University.

Amir Gillis has a flare for the dramatic with the football in his hands, but humility is in his heart when his helmet comes off. After Gillis helped Simon Gratz hold off visiting Bartram, 30-22, Friday night, the junior quarterback made a confession.

"I felt I had to apologize because I think that hurt my team," he said later. "I was being selfish at the time, and it's a team sport.

Bryce Garrett gets her intelligence and interest in the medical field from her mother, Silina. The Bartram senior gets her basketball skills and passion for the game from her father, Joe, who is also her head coach. Whether the shooting guard is on the court for the Braves (9-2) or in her favorite class, Health Related Technology, she approaches it with the same mind-set. "Wherever I go, I always think: Strive for the best," Garrett said. "It just comes from experience and what I've seen.

It's been a dozen years since the city laid down a 12-foot-wide strip of asphalt along the Schuylkill in Center City and called it a park. At the time , officials were unsure whether people would venture to the waterfront, and so the path was opened without any landscaping or amenities. How things have changed. Any day now, the Schuylkill River Development Corp. will start formal construction on the fourth installment of the now wildly popular waterfront trail. Called Bartram's Mile, the $6 million addition is the first segment to make the leap across the river and extend the recreation path into the neighborhoods of Southwest Philadelphia.
