The University of Virginia lacrosse coaching staff had never seen Germantown Academy senior Kurt Mueller play, yet they offered him a full scholarship. Sight unseen. That's the equivalent of buying a Rolls-Royce without taking it for a test drive. The reason? Germantown Academy coach Ted Haynie highly recommended him to Virginia coach Dom Starsia. Before taking the job at Virginia, Starsia was the head man at Brown, and Haynie sent him two former Germantown Academy players, Sam Jackson and Jerry Swope.

In talking with Keita Crespina, you get the impression that the senior fullback would like to carry the football, say, 20 more times a game than he does now. And if it were not for one slight tactical dilemma, Lincoln coach Jeb Lynch would gladly oblige the 5-foot, 8-inch, 170-pounder. The only reason Crespina doesn't take more handoffs and pitchouts, it seems, is that he's lined up in the backfield with one of the city's finest scholastic running backs - Charlie Peoples. Peoples, who entered the season with more than 1,000 career yards, displayed his explosive form Friday with 153 yards and three touchdowns in a 26-6 Public League inter-division victory over host Dobbins.

Just ask Nancy and Kay. Want to hear a concert? Need a place to stay? Hankering for Italian food? Can't find where you parked the car? Got lost? Need the name of a cheap bookstore? Or just up for some friendly chatter and a big, pink-lipstick smile? Just ask Nancy Boyle or Kay Simon, sisters, and den-grandmothers of Ocean City. They hold down the fort at the Ocean City Information Center, on the music pier between 8th and 9th streets on the boardwalk. "They're the dynamic duo," says Mark Soifer, Ocean City's PR director.

"I never expected he'd be successful with this," says Wynnefield's Carolyn Smith of her teenage son, Willard, and his obsession with rap music. "I thought it was a fad and he would get rid of it and do something quiet. " Sorry, Mrs. Smith. Willard, 19, is now better known as the Fresh Prince. And paired with Southwest Philadelphia's Jeffrey Townes, 23, alias D. J. Jazzy Jeff, he is part of one of the country's most successful hip-hop acts. Together, they are turning the tables on the Prince's mom and everyone else who has ever thought of rap music as a one-dimensional fad. The duo's smart new album, He's the D.J., I'm the Rapper - flying high at No. 7 on Billboard's black-album chart (and No. 29 on the pop chart)

After seven games, there are no more superlatives left to describe the play of Downingtown running backs Ben Boggs and Steve Anderson. Everything that can be said has been said. Even Whippets coach John Barr cannot come up with any new adjectives to describe their latest gridiron feats. "I can't think of anything new to say about them. It may get monotonous, but I love it," Barr said after the two led the Whippets to a 34-0 win over visiting West Chester Henderson Friday night.

BETHLEHEM - They are the duo to watch, when the first team offense isn't on the field. Backup quarterback Michael Vick and rookie wideout Riley Cooper are money in the bank for the second-team offense. Granted, they're usually playing against the second-team defense, here at training camp, but they still put on an impressive show. Yesterday morning, Vick found Cooper on a quick, sharp slant, corner Geoffrey Pope unable to intercede. Then Vick tried a quick out to Cooper, but corner Macho Harris, back from hamstring troubles, jumped the route.

Toothless drug dealers huddle on the corner of 38th and Olive streets, selling dope right in front of neighborhood children. Suddenly, they appear. It's the dynamic duo - a couple of cops in jeans and T-shirts sent to wipe out the thugs and return Mantua's streets to law-abiding citizens. "Heads up, it's Batman and Robin!" the evildoers shout, scrambling from their corner and tossing drugs and semiautomatic weapons into abandoned houses and storm drains as they flee. Brian Reynolds is Batman - tall, dark-haired and tough.

If ABC's sexy Monday Night Football opening wasn't enough to capture viewers' attention, the Eagles' bombs-away offense should have been. After laying a three-point egg eight days earlier in a cross-state showdown with the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Eagles reminded a national television audience that they can still put up points in bunches. In the process, they also reaffirmed their status as the beast of the NFC East with a 49-21 rout of the Dallas Cowboys at Texas Stadium.

All right, so it was the lowly New York Knicks against whom the 76ers needed to get well, trying to get a victory any way they could. For that to happen, Allen Iverson and Chris Webber had to bring out their A-games last night, and they did. Iverson scored 47 points and Webber added 34 to lift the Sixers to a 117-112 victory over the Knicks in front of a sellout crowd of 19,763 at Madison Square Garden, temporarily ending a skid in which...
