Kevin Newsome has quit the Temple football team. The Penn State transfer, who suffered a sprained shoulder in March, is expected to graduate from Temple this summer and, according to a source close to the situation, will not play this fall. The 6-foot-2, 231-pound Newsome, a standout high school quarterback from Virginia, was expected to contribute at H-back this season. Newsome, recruited as a quarterback, left Penn State in August 2011. He was out of football for a year while attending Tidewater (Va.)

Wildwood High School plans to play a full football schedule this season, Warriors athletic director Christel Pond said Monday. Pond said the Warriors had around 25 players at practice last week and decided to proceed with the season. Pond said school officials had considered shutting down the program after many summer practice sessions were attended by around 10 to 12 players. But Pond said coaches and school officials were able to encourage additional students to join a program that enjoyed the best season in its recent history in 2012.

Derryk Sellers will walk the halls of Lindenwold High School. He'll check out the cafeteria. He'll poke his head into the library. He'll make a pitch at gym class. "I'll find some guys who want to play football," Sellers said. It has come to that for Sellers, a good coach and a great guy. When Lindenwold students report for classes next week, he'll be forced to try to rustle up some football players to keep the sport alive at the Colonial Conference school. For most of the last couple of weeks of preseason practice, Lindenwold has fielded just 18 players.

A New Jersey boy who briefly quit his youth football team when his coach told him he couldn't wear pink gloves is back on the squad. Julian Connerton wanted to wear the gloves to support his mother's fight against breast cancer. And when the 12-year-old returned to the field Saturday, he wasn't the only one wearing pink. The Press of Atlantic City reported that all of Connerton's teammates on the Egg Harbor City Crusaders and the team's cheerleaders donned pink socks to raise awareness about breast cancer.

ON SEPT. 9, the first day of class at Martin Luther King High, with cameras and reporters all around and the school under a microscope the size of the William Penn statue atop City Hall, principal William Wade's biggest nightmare was realized: A fight broke out. The two brawling students had to be separated while others looked on. It seemed like the fulfillment of predictions from some community leaders that chaos would fill the halls - the result...

HYPERBOLE would cheapen what St. Joseph's Prep quarterback Chris Martin accomplished this season. Just the facts should suffice. As the Daily News presents its 2013 All-City football team, the 5-10, 185-pounder is one of the four top honorees. All he did was return from a partially torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee to lead the Hawks to their first PIAA Class AAAA championship. Martin, the co-Catholic League Player of the Year, injured the knee in the AAAA city final, but returned in the state quarterfinals after missing two games.

THE LATE POP STAR Michael Jackson sang to us to look at "The Man in the Mirror. " The song of the same title told us that if we wanted to make the world a better place, "take a look at look at yourself and then make a change. " I'm making a change. It's not earth-shattering. It probably won't make much difference to a lot of people other than me. But it's something I can do. It's something that I chose to do. After 48-plus years of life, 25 years as a full-time sports reporter, 20 years at the Daily News and nearly 19 years as a sports columnist here, I no longer will consciously used the official name of the NFL team in Washington.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - The day before Joe Paterno may make his first public comments since an unprecedented sex scandal took the country by storm, more than a dozen news trucks and vans set up shop around Beaver Stadium. Then, later Monday evening, Penn State kicked off its quest to direct reporters from asking questions about Paterno's former longtime defensive coordinator, Jerry Sandusky, who has been charged with sex abuse crimes against minors. "Media planning to attend Tuesday's Penn State Football weekly teleconference are advised that that primary focus of the teleconference is to answer questions related to Penn State's Senior Day game with Nebraska this Saturday," a Penn State spokesman wrote in a note.

Former college football player Shawn Bullard, now 31, was still at Temple, hanging in the locker room, when he overheard a conversation that would change his life. Someone was saying that it was possible to buy houses cheaply from the city, fix them, and sell them. "A lightbulb went off in my head," he said. Bullard, a North Philadelphia real estate developer, credits football for his tenacity, confidence, and hustle - all keys to success. But, he acknowledged, the game also gave him a false sense of entitlement that got him into jams, personally and in business.

BEAU ALLEN was a rising sophomore at Wisconsin when Russell Wilson arrived. The circumstances were unusual. Wilson, a football and baseball star at North Carolina State, had gotten his degree the previous spring, then had quarterbacked the Wolfpack in 2010 while attending grad school. When the season ended, Wilson told NC State coach Tom O'Brien he intended to go to spring training with the Colorado Rockies (who had drafted him in the fourth round the year before) instead of reporting for spring football.

A good showing by Rutgers in its first season in the Big Ten helped the Scarlet Knights close out strong in its recruiting of the class of 2015. Rutgers went 8-5, including 3-5 in the Big Ten, and defeated North Carolina, 40-21, in the Quick Lane Bowl. It landed its most sought-after recruits in the weeks leading up to national signing day Wednesday. They included four-star Florida defensive end Marques Ford - the highest rated Rutgers recruit since 2012 - and Illinois offensive tackle Jack Shutack, rated the No. 77 offensive tackle in the country by ESPN.com.

Quinton Law grew up dreaming about his senior football season at Moorestown High School. "All of us guys, we've been together for years," Law said of his classmates on the football team. "We were going to do something special when we got to high school. " Law's senior season effectively ended after just one series. He banged his knee on the ground on the first possession of the season opener Sept. 12 against Winslow Township. He thought he had suffered a bruise and played the rest of the game in increasing discomfort.

Cherry Hill West senior Sarah McGlinn likes being in the middle of the action on the soccer field. She wanted the same for her college life. "It's the city, there's always something going on," McGlinn said of her decision to sign Wednesday with Temple University on a soccer scholarship. McGlinn committed to the school in 2014 but made her official visit to the North Broad Street campus last weekend. The trip only cemented her belief that she wanted to continue her athletic and academic career at Temple.

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.

Paulsboro returned to its roots in more ways than one. South Jersey's most decorated public-school football program won its 17th South Jersey Group 1 championship with a 21-0 victory over Salem in hard rain Saturday at Rowan University. But the twist in the Red Raiders' rise back to the top of the sectional tournament was the team's title-game reliance on an old-fashioned offensive approach: a dominant ground game. "I love Coach [Glenn] Howard, but if we would have not run the ball today, I would have been upset," Paulsboro senior De'Shaun Burgess said after finishing his career with an electrifying performance on the slick, wet artificial turf.

At his core, Chris Bright is a problem solver. Academically, he's the No. 4-ranked student in Rancocas Valley's senior class. On the football field, he's the Red Devils' starting middle linebacker - the "quarterback" of the defense - and center on the offensive line. His future is likely at an Ivy League school, and he hopes it includes a spot on a football team. And he's leaning toward studying mechanical engineering. It's a field, however unlikely, that Bright likens to football.

It's easy to overlook Jesse Streb. It's easy to underrate Cherokee. The versatile senior might be the perfect symbol for his football team. He's one of those solid but unspectacular players, and the Chiefs - this season, anyway - are one of those solid but unspectacular teams. Sometimes, sure and steady wins the race. Streb might not have stunning statistics, and the Chiefs might not have a remarkable record. But that won't matter much when fourth-seeded Cherokee (8-3), the defending champion, meets second-seeded Rancocas Valley (9-2)

LAST MAY, the Dallas Cowboys came very close to selecting Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel with their first-round draft pick. For reasons that had more to do with selling tickets and grabbing headlines than addressing the immediate needs of his football team, owner and general manager Jerry Jones wanted to make a big splash and take Johnny Football. Jones eventually was talked off the ledge by others in the Cowboys' war room and persuaded to pass on Manziel and continue the much less-glamorous rebuilding of the team's offensive line.
