Vincent DiMartini seemed to crystallize the angry skepticism that drew more than 150 people last week to the Conestoga High School auditorium. Conestoga is where three senior football players stand accused of assaulting a freshman teammate by violating him with a broom handle. School officials called the meeting to let parents air concerns and ask questions, even if they couldn't get answers. DiMartini, a retired police officer, asserted that Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan had "sensationalized" what happened that day in the locker room last fall, in a bid to get before the cameras and discredit the top-ranking high school.

Mastbaum's Tomar Taylor stopped West Catholic's Kimani Patterson on a two- point conversion attempt with 1 minute, 5 seconds left to secure a 13-12 Public League victory in the city all-star football game last night at Northeast High. The Non-Public team scored twice in the last 4 1/2 minutes after facing a 13-0 deficit. An interception by Lincoln's Mannie Adens set up the first touchdown of the night. On the Public League's first offensive play, quarterback Dave MacDonald of Lincoln threw a 33-yard scoring pass to Ben Franklin's Tyrone West.

Greg "Bubba" Bernhardt has been fired as Bonner-Prendergast's head football coach after four seasons. He learned of the school's decision Tuesday afternoon. "I was totally shocked," Bernhardt said. "I didn't see it coming at all. I thought we did a good job of putting the program in the right direction. " Bernhardt, who was part of Monsignor Bonner's 1995 championship squad, compiled an 19-23 overall record. The Friars went 4-6 this season, losing to Archbishop Ryan, 7-6, in a Catholic League Class AAA playoff semifinal.

Michael Vick walked down a corridor at the Eagles' training facility after Wednesday's practice clutching a ball. He carried the ball earlier in the day and later in the day. He took it to breakfast, to team meetings, and to lunch. One week after Vick lost two fumbles against the Pittsburgh Steelers and amid a season in which he has fumbled eight times, the quarterback is trying to get a grip on his problem entering Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions. Vick said he wants to feel the pigskin, and he's been keeping the ball high and tight.

Perhaps concerned that Penn State's status as a national monument to sports-inspired mass delusion was not completely secure, more than 200 former football players recently petitioned university officials to reerect a bronze likeness of tarnished coaching legend Joe Paterno outside Beaver Stadium, which was removed four years ago as a sexual-abuse scandal shook State College. Then, just a week after this latest attempt to rewrite Penn State's modern history, a Philadelphia judge unsealed reports that convicted child predator and longtime Paterno assistant Jerry Sandusky had sexually abused children there - and that Paterno and other coaches knew about it - as long ago as the Ford administration.

Didn't see this news coming from North Broad Street. If it ends up happening - if Temple's board of trustees ousts president Neil D. Theobald - a question comes up immediately: What would that mean for Temple's building a campus football stadium? At a glance, you might think Temple would continue its present course, steering toward building the stadium. In addition to the bombshell news at Tuesday's board meeting - the board of trustees announcing it had taken a unanimous vote of no confidence in Theobald and intended to dismiss him - the board also approved spending $250,000 more on the current stadium feasibility study, adding a traffic impact report.

Two football players from both Temple and Penn State have been named to the watch list for the Maxwell Award, and one from each school is on the watch list for the Chuck Bednarik Award. Both awards are presented by Philadelphia's Maxwell Football Club. The Maxwell Award is for college football's most outstanding player, while the Bednarik Award goes to the nation's best college defensive player. Temple's Tyler Matakevich, a seventh-round draft choice of the Pittsburgh Steelers, won last year's Bednarik Award.

When 16-year-old Asir Brown was killed in a drive-by shooting at a holiday cookout in South Philadelphia near midnight Sunday, he became at least the sixth victim under age 18 killed by gunfire in the city this year. Now Brown's family and friends are left wondering why his life was taken. "I still don't even believe my little brother is gone," Ameer Brown, 19, said Tuesday. "Why would you take somebody who was next out of the 'hood?" Asir Brown's former coach with the South Philly Hurricanes, Terry Bennett, called his slaying "tragic.

HARRISBURG - The House ventured into the national debate over fantasy sports Wednesday, with a committee unanimously approving legislation to regulate and tax the contests. The bill calls for fantasy sports operators to obtain state licenses, then pay a levy equal to 5 percent of their revenue - entry fees minus prizes - multiplied by a percentage representing their business from Pennsylvania. Supporters say it's unclear how much new revenue the cash-strapped commonwealth could gain, though it would likely not be enough to change its budget woes.

BAYVILLE, N.J. - Jon Taylor is a football player, first and foremost. The Salem High School junior certainly looks the part. At 6-foot and a muscular 211 pounds, he stood apart from many of the lithe and lean athletes at the Meet of Champions for track and field on Wednesday night. When the gun sounded for the finals of the 100-meter dash, Taylor separated himself again. "It's not something I expected," Taylor said after winning the race at Central Regional High School in 10.61 seconds.

Here's our top-10 list, which is based on current abilities and potential to exceed at the next level. 1. D'Andre Swift, St. Joseph's Prep, RB.

Fifth in a series of profiles of potential Phillies draft picks. HOOVER, Ala. - A.J. Puk absorbed the charged atmosphere at Hoover Metropolitan Stadium last week with each completed inning. He yelled and chewed the top of his Florida jersey when he hung a slider in the fifth inning of an SEC tournament game. He pumped his fist twice with a big strikeout to end the sixth. He pounded his chest after a seventh-inning groundout. Puk, a 6-foot-7 pitcher with a prized left arm, shuffled each time past his Gators teammates.

Philadelphia Police Officer Sean Cave has unintentionally become a wide receiver - of praise, that is - after his game of street football with a group of young boys Monday in Germantown was posted to social media. Facebook user Melanie Wright posted two photos and a video of Cave playing with the boys on Memorial Day. "As I sat & watched," her caption read, "this cop got my nephews & a few other boys together & played football with them, for a long while. Then he sat them down & talked to them about doing well in school & not getting into trouble.
