RON JAWORSKI treats opportunity like a Doberman treats prime rib. So when Tim Tebow was released by the New York Jets on April 29, Jaworski took a shot by reaching out to the unemployed quarterback and offered him a roster spot with the Soul. He's still waiting for a reply. "I haven't heard back from him and I'm not going to push it," said Jaworski, one of the Soul's owners. "If he decides he wants to play Arena Football, we'll make a spot for him. " Jaworski and Soul coach Clint Dolezel sent Tebow a list of plays they had in mind for him, most were around the goal line.

THE SOUL re-signed quarterback Dan Raudabaugh to a 2-year contract, the Daily News has learned from a league source. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Raudabaugh, the team's offensive leader the last three seasons, represents the first key player to rejoin the club. He has an extensive relationship with head coach Clint Dolezel. Dolezel was re-signed in September, also for two seasons. The Soul went a disappointing 9-9 this past season and was eliminated by Cleveland in the first-round of the playoffs.

It was another heartbreaking loss for the Soul on Saturday night.

But the Pittsburgh Power's Julian Rauch kicked a 23-yard field goal as time expired to eke out the 57-56 win at the Wells Fargo Center. The Power moved to 10-4. The Soul fell to 7-7.

THE SOUL signed coach Clint Dolezel to a 2-year contract. Dolezel took over on an interim basis after Doug Plank surprisingly left after the season to take the Orlando job. Dolezel was the Soul's assistant head coach last season and was in charge of the offense, which led the league with 68.2 points per game. The Soul rebounded from a 6-10 season in 2011 to advance to the AFL championship before losing badly to Arizona. Keeping Dolezel will give the Soul an edge in retaining key players such as quarterback Dan Raudabaugh, wide receiver Tiger Jones and running back Derrick Ross.

After a back-and-forth struggle, the Soul got revenge on the Jacksonville Sharks on Sunday night at the PPL Center in Allentown, winning the conference championship and advancing to ArenaBowl XXIX. The 55-50 victory left the Soul one win away from their first Arena Football League championship since 2008. Just last season, the Sharks dispatched the Soul, 61-56, in the American Conference final. The Soul (15-3) will take on the Arizona Rattlers on Aug. 26 at Gila River Arena.

FROM THE OUTSIDE peering in, it would seem as if the Arena Football League is taking on water. Four more teams were subtracted this offseason, the 18-game schedule was reduced to 16 and everybody gets to make the playoffs. It's been a chaotic seven months since last year's championship, which San Jose won to cap an historic 20-win season. Even the Sabercats had to cease operations because of money problems. "It was a tumultuous offseason in revamping our league," Soul majority owner Ron Jaworski said at the team's media day in Voorhees on Tuesday.

During the regular season, the Soul had their way with just about everyone on their Arena Football League schedule except the Jacksonville Sharks. In the American Conference championship game Sunday, that once again proved to be the case as the Sharks beat the Soul, 61-56, at the Wells Fargo Center, ending their quest for the franchise's second ArenaBowl title. "We didn't play well and they did and that's the bottom line," Soul coach Clint Dolezel said. "You turn the ball over twice and dig yourself a hole and it's going to be an uphill battle against a good team like that and that's the bottom line.

IF FAMILIARITY breeds contempt, the Soul and Cleveland must really hate each other by now. After a decisive win in Cleveland over the weekend, the Soul (15-3) will turn around and host the Gladiators (8-10) this Saturday at 5 p.m. in an AFL playoff game at the Wells Fargo Center. It will be the teams' fourth meeting this year, and the seventh in just the last two seasons.

THERE'S ONE team in Philadelphia without a quarterback controversy at the moment. They have the top-ranked offense in their league and a serious shot at bringing a title home to the city. The Soul now sits atop the East Division at 12-3 for the season after defeating the Tampa Bay Storm, 64-42, last night at the Wells Fargo Center. Head coach Clint Dolezel's team appears primed to finish as the top seed in the American Conference and its high-powered offense will look to tear through the playoffs.

Bryan Robinson shot through the Tampa Bay offensive line just as quickly as it took quarterback Jason Boltus to take his second snap of the third quarter. With the Soul defensive lineman bearing down on him, Boltus kept his eyes downfield and shuffled backward to avoid the pursuit. But like all night, he had little to see. This time, he ran out of space, too. Robinson tackled him for a safety, highlighting a stellar defensive effort in Philadelphia's 64-42 win Friday night at the Wells Fargo Center.
