Any multiplatinum band is bound to attract its share of haters, yet the disgust Coldplay generates can feel crazily disproportionate to the band's talents. For the super-famous millionaire husband of a movie star, front man Chris Martin seems like a decent enough guy. And at the Tweeter Center on Sunday, the British quartet proved there are far worse candidates for the title of World's Biggest Rock Band, and even added oomph to some of the more wan selections from its new album, X&Y. The sing-along pop, decorated with guitar swells and repetitive piano figures adapted smartly from less mainstream acts, blended with Martin's Bono-worthy bursts of empathy and soulful falsetto, for an arena-scale sound that was full but never bloated.

Early on, it looked as if Archbishop Wood's stout offensive line, which was providing gaping holes for speedy tailback Jarrett McClenton, might gradually beat St. Joseph's Prep into submission. But after allowing three touchdowns in the opening 14 minutes of Saturday night's Catholic League cross-division clash, the Hawks quieted the Vikings and emerged from William Tennent with an impressive 31-21 win. "Wood is a great football team, and we like to schedule great football teams," Prep coach Gabe Infante said.

After an uplifting triumph in Texas and a sobering defeat in North Jersey, St. Joseph's Prep quarterback Chris Martin said it was good to be back on home soil. Martin and the Hawks' other offensive playmakers looked comfortable from the get-go Saturday night at Plymouth Whitemarsh, striking for five first-half touchdowns in a 35-6 romp over undermanned North Penn. While directing a no-huddle, fast-paced attack in the opening 24 minutes, Martin completed 12 of 16 passes for 162 yards.

HERSHEY, Pa. - St. Joseph's Prep faced a wide range of competition this season, including local heavyweight Archbishop Wood and out-of-state powers Don Bosco Prep (N.J.) and Jesuit College Prep (Texas), while advancing to Chocolate Town. So, as it showed in Sunday night's PIAA Class AAAA state final against District 7's Pittsburgh Central Catholic, Gabe Infante's squad was prepared for just about any kind of opponent. This time, the Hawks gradually solved a run-first attack, exposed the flaws in what had been a near lights-out defense, and stormed to statewide glory with a 35-10 triumph at frigid Hersheypark Stadium.

After leaving North Jersey four years ago and taking over as football coach at St. Joseph's Prep, Gabe Infante began the "process" of building a consistent winner. His dedication and one-game-at-a-time approach paid off Friday night, as the Hawks topped archrival La Salle, 30-20, and earned the Catholic League Class AAAA crown before an overflow crowd at Plymouth Whitemarsh. "I'm proud of everyone who believed in us, believed in the mission," Infante said after presenting Prep athletic director Jim Murray with the championship plaque.

All night long, it seemed the last team to force its opponent to turn the ball over would win the battle of the top teams in the Catholic League Class AAAA football. With a little more than a minute and a half remaining, St. Joseph's Prep proved that theory right, as the Hawks defeated rival La Salle, 24-16, Saturday night in front of a packed house at Plymouth Whitemarsh. As many as 8,000 fans watched as La Salle (6-1 overall, 2-1 division), ranked No. 1 in Southeastern Pennsylvania by The Inquirer, and No. 3 Prep (6-0, 2-0)

His St. Joseph's Prep players had just won, 37-7, in a Catholic League Class AAAA matchup Saturday night against Roman Catholic, and coach Gabe Infante was happy that they weren't satisfied. "We are very focused on our process," Infante said. "A win is a win and we love to get a win against a quality program, but we are trying to get better. " An explosive four-touchdown second quarter put the Hawks, ranked third in Southeastern Pennsylvania by The Inquirer, comfortably in front.

AROUND THIS TIME last season, Jack Clements had a great view of the St. Joseph's Prep Class AAAA state title run. Then a junior backup quarterback, Clements watched as senior starter Chris Martin returned from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and led the Hawks to their first PIAA football championship. Fast forward little more than a year later - with Martin in attendance on Saturday - Clements hoisted the Hawks, 34-30, past a plucky Parkland squad. The Moorestown, N.J., resident finished with 266 passing yards, added another 42 on the ground and also accounted for all five of Prep's touchdowns (four passing, one rushing)

Three years ago, in a brief session of throw-around during halftime of a St. Joseph's Prep game, a freshman's future was altered. "Each time I threw the ball, Steve Wagner, the freshman coach at the time, kept backing up, backing up, and backing up," Chris Martin recalled. "He then mentioned the possibility of me playing quarterback. " That exchange led Martin, previously a fullback and linebacker, to replace injured starter Pat Walsh as the freshman-team quarterback, spend his sophomore year as backup to Skyler Mornhinweg, and take the reins for two varsity seasons.

So much for being a year away from statewide glory. Though its starting lineup was filled with underclassmen, including eight juniors and three sophomores, St. Joseph's Prep last week captured its first PIAA Class AAAA state championship with a 35-10 romp over Pittsburgh Central Catholic. For maneuvering around the roadblocks and leaving Hershey with the first-place trophy, the Prep is The Inquirer's Southeastern Pennsylvania football team of the year. The Hawks toughened themselves early with nonleague contests against Jesuit College Prep (Texas)

HYPERBOLE would cheapen what St. Joseph's Prep quarterback Chris Martin accomplished this season. Just the facts should suffice. As the Daily News presents its 2013 All-City football team, the 5-10, 185-pounder is one of the four top honorees. All he did was return from a partially torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee to lead the Hawks to their first PIAA Class AAAA championship. Martin, the co-Catholic League Player of the Year, injured the knee in the AAAA city final, but returned in the state quarterfinals after missing two games.

HERSHEY - Nearly the entire St. Joseph's Prep team was striking a collective pose in front of the scoreboard that displayed the spoils of victory when a familiar face bounded just outside the edge of most camera frames. "Hey," screamed head coach Gabe Infante, "you forgetting somebody?!" Forgive his tardiness, after the Hawks' 35-10 triumph over Pittsburgh Central Catholic, Infante was fielding a congratulatory phone call from Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter, a Prep graduate.
