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.

For several months, groups at the school have been protesting racist acts on campus.

USUALLY, COLLEGE football players wear stickers on their helmets to signify individual or team accomplishments. South Carolina is doing something powerfully different. The Gamecocks will wear stickers to commemorate the nine black men and women who were killed in a shooting June 17 at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, S.C. The sticker features a palmetto tree - the state tree - with nine doves flying around it. "Our team felt like it would be appropriate to have a sticker on our helmet in honor and memory of the nine people that lost their lives in Charleston this summer," coach Steve Spurrier said yesterday.

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.

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.

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.

Peter Liacouras had a vision for Temple University. He wanted the commuter school on North Broad Street to become a world-class institution. He wanted star sports teams and leafy green quads and all the hallmarks of a classic American college experience. He wanted a diverse faculty and a student body that looked like the city Temple called home. And for nearly two decades as Temple president, he charged headfirst toward that vision - courting controversy along the way - as the university he dreamed of slowly became reality.

Darren Sproles is not at the Eagles' practices this week and has not attended any voluntary workouts, coach Doug Pederson said Tuesday. Sproles is spending the spring with his family and is expected to attend the mandatory minicamp next month. "He and I are in direct communication," Pederson said. "We have been talking all offseason and I have no issues with Darren. I fully expect him to be here for the mandatory camp. But again, this is a voluntary program, so I can't fault him for [not]

The Eagles' strategy to manage their quarterback situation for 2016 sounds wonderful in theory, as long as you ignore the phony promise at its core. Their theory is this: Once Sam Bradford wises up and realizes that the franchise will not trade him and that he has no leverage to force it to, he will have no choice but to report for training camp. At that time, the Eagles will, as head coach Doug Pederson told reporters after last week's NFL draft, "welcome [him] with open arms. . . . He's the leader of this football team.

" Bridgeton coach Mike Valella suspects he might already have witnessed one. Valella is South Jersey baseball's answer to Job: Patient, long-suffering, ever-hopeful. He entered this season with a career record of 50-256 in 13 seasons. Bridgeton was 1-25 in 2013 and 1-23 in 2014. The Bulldogs were 4-23 last season. When Saturday's four-team Delaney Classic began at Clayton, Bridgeton was 0-5 in 2016.

The new Kingsway High School football coach was energetic and enthusiastic and adamant about a few things: His team would be physically tough, mentally tough and fundamentally sound. Oh, and the Dragons would run the football. This was 1979. This also was 2016. And if new Kingsway coach Mark Hendricks last weekend sounded a lot like new Kingsway coach Tony Barchuk in August of 1979 - sans the thick Brooklyn accent, of course - it probably was because football is football and coaching is coaching and teenage boys crave discipline and direction as much today as they did 37 years ago. Or 87 years ago. Some things don't change.

Officials of a Main Line school district said Thursday that they had removed the entire Conestoga High School football coaching staff, and that the head coach had resigned, after an internal investigation showed that players had routinely hazed teammates for years. "The locker rooms had an insufficient adult presence throughout the football season, creating an environment where hazing activities could occur," Tredyffrin/Easttown district officials said. Football coach John Vogan, who also coached baseball, resigned effective immediately, the district told parents in a letter Thursday.

The allegations were horrific: Two football players at an academically elite high school held down a smaller freshman teammate trying to escape a hazing ritual, while a third used a broom handle to penetrate the younger boy's rectum. The three Conestoga High School students were charged with assault, unlawful restraint, and other counts - but not hazing. The lack of a hazing charge was the result of a "glaring omission" in state law, said Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan.

MOBILE, Ala. - Before he was so rudely interrupted a year ago, Howie Roseman was trying to build an atmosphere in which players drafted by the Eagles would stay with the Eagles, would feel valued by the organization, and would build valuable continuity for the team. Roseman, back in charge of Eagles personnel after a yearlong hiatus at the insistence of former coach Chip Kelly, is moving to re-establish that initiative this week with new deals for the team's top two tight ends, Zach Ertz (five years, $42.5 million, on Monday)
