Sam Ekwonike didn't know much about Coastal Carolina football before a visit to the campus in Conway, S.C., in the winter. "As soon as I saw it, I liked it," Ekwonike said of the school located eight miles from the resort area of Myrtle Beach. A senior at Cinnaminson, Ekwonike has accepted a scholarship offer from Coastal Carolina, a Football Championship Subdivision (formerly I-AA) program that competes in the Big South Conference. The 6-foot-3, 340-pound Ekwonike, a three-year starter at Cinnaminson, is projected as an offensive guard at Coastal Carolina.

Like the three other Southeastern Pennsylvania recruits headed to Coastal Carolina, Richard Sampson hopes to focus on football and academics and not get too caught up in all that the warm-weather town has to offer. "It's really beautiful there," the Unionville High senior said. "There are palm trees all around the campus. The players said they go to the beach a lot when they have down time. " Coastal Carolina, a Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) program, is in Conway, S.C., near the golf mecca of Myrtle Beach.

Archbishop Carroll High's Mike Costanzo can rough it just as well as anybody else. But when an offer came to play Division I baseball in a warm-weather town and live in a condominium on a beach or golf course, Costanzo quickly grabbed it. "It's unbelievable down there," said Costanzo of Coastal Carolina, which is located in Conway, S.C., near the golf mecca of Myrtle Beach. "The campus is beautiful, and the people are very nice. " Costanzo, who committed to Coastal Carolina last fall, hasn't packed his bags yet. A standout third baseman and pitcher, the senior is busy trying to help the Patriots defend their Catholic League title.

Now that Jonathan Hopson is about to become a Chanticleer, he has to learn what one is. Last month, the Strath Haven standout golfer signed a letter of intent to attend Coastal Carolina, the South Carolina college with an odd nickname and a sunny climate. The scholarship caps a rocky high school career for Hopson, who was not allowed to play at Strath Haven this last season because of eligibility problems surrounding his transfer to the school from Chichester in 1989. As a result, Hopson earned his way to Coastal Carolina on the merit of his accomplishments on the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA)

WE'LL NEVER know what might have happened, had Villanova's John Robertson been able to play in Saturday's FCS quarterfinal against visiting Sam Houston State. The redshirt junior quarterback - who already is the program's all-time leader in total offense and tonight has a very good chance of winning the Walter Payton Award as the top player at the FCS level - was a late scratch due to a concussion suffered late in last week's second-round home win over Liberty. Senior Chris Polony - who actually beat out Robertson for the job in both 2011 and '12 - got his first start in 2 years and played about as well as he could.

Collin DiGalbo is a lot like Bonner-Prendergast's football team. He's a little dinged up and underrated in some circles, but he gets the job done when it counts the most. "He just keeps fighting," fellow senior captain Joe Oquendo said. "He's the toughest kid I know. " DiGalbo's arm and competitive spirit helped the Friars, all but down and out entering the fourth quarter, rally from a 13-point deficit and stun Archbishop Ryan, 21-20, in a Catholic League Class AAA matchup Saturday afternoon at George Washington.
