Some might argue that Nico D'Angelo committed too early. And with just cause. The 6-foot-4, 275-pounder, who will be a senior at Holy Spirit, was starting to attract more Football Bowl Subdivision attention. The offensive lineman had offers from Tulane and Buffalo, while Rutgers, Temple, and Central Florida were expressing interest. But . . . "Big-time football, all the bells and whistles, are not really important to me," said D'Angelo, who orally committed to Football Championship Subdivision program Villanova on June 27. "What I want is a good education and good football.

Vinny D'Angelo is a tough kid. That's what Ridley lacrosse coach Doug Ellers said about his young midfielder last year before the Green Raiders won the Central League, Pennsylvania Scholastic Lacrosse Association and Keystone Cup titles for the second consecutive year. Built like a fireplug - D'Angelo is 5-foot-8, 190 pounds - and just as forceful when set in motion, D'Angelo, a junior, still is a rough customer on the field. However, much has changed for the rest of the team.

The safe and sensible move for Jimmy D'Angelo would have been to stay in Philadelphia. He ran a busy golf school on Sansom Street. He was a familiar figure in the Philadelphia Section PGA. He and his wife lived in a 200-year-old farmhouse in Feasterville. But D'Angelo left everything behind, including the security of being involved with golf in an area with a rich history and dozens of fine courses. He took a job in this noisy resort town where the beach was king and the number of golf courses was about to be doubled - from one to two - with the construction of the Dunes Golf and Beach Club.

The grass has faded to brown on Camden Catholic's soccer field, but there are a few things that haven't changed for the Irish. First, there's green everywhere you go. The refreshment stand is green, the uniforms are green, the writing on the wall of the school building is green. Even the garbage dumpster in the parking lot is green. Then there's Mike D'Angelo, the coach of the girls' team, who's spending his fifth year roaming the sidelines. D'Angelo is as enthusiastic as ever about promoting high school soccer, college soccer, and soccer in general.

Chris D'Angelo has been a stabilizing force on one of the least-experienced teams in South Jersey. The 5-foot-9 point guard is the only senior starter on a Bishop Eustace team that also starts three sophomores and a junior. D'Angelo is not a big scorer, but he offers plenty of other skills to the 8-3 Crusaders. In addition to his leadership and outstanding defense, D'Angelo has become one of the area's top ball handlers. "Chris is like a grandfather out there with all of our young kids," Bishop Eustace coach Bill Lange said.

Salvatore D'Angelo - Sal to his friends - used to take to the stage, but now the stage comes to him. Celebs from Michelle Pfeiffer to Michael Bolton to Hall and Oates come to eat his food and hear him play guitar and sing as he strolls through his restaurant. "Lionel Richie came in and said, 'Sal, you gonna sing for me?' Sometimes James Ingram's wife calls from California and asks me to sing 'Volare' over the phone," D'Angelo said in his heavy Italian accent. A former professional actor and musician, D'Angelo got his start in restaurants when he was 12, working in the kitchen at the old Jimmy's Milan, a few blocks away, where his brother, Tony, was a chef.

The Bristol Borough school board Thursday voted, 5-3, to appoint Steven Cullen as junior varsity basketball coach, effectively removing former JV coach John D'Angelo.

" School board member Ernest Pinelli, who voted against Cullen's appointment, made a motion that D'Angelo be appointed assistant varsity coach. But the motion was killed when board Chairman Louis Persichetti said, "The proper procedure is to advertise the position and take applications.

Back when Vince D'Angelo went to Haverford High School and was a member of the Fords football team, he didn't think very highly of cross-country runners. In fact, he thought they were a "bunch of wimps. " D'Angelo - a 1970 graduate - played for the Fords during their glory years. Led by all-American quarterback Steve Joachim and tight end Randy Grossman (both went on to star at Temple, and Grossman played for two Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl championship teams), the Fords lost only one game his junior and senior year.
