STATE COLLEGE — If it's August, then it must be time to start playing football again. Even at Penn State. Or perhaps particularly at Penn State. At long last. After enduring the most turbulent offseason ever, it's time to re-embrace a sport. And a way of coming together. Whatever you think about all that happened here, has any program or community ever really needed it more? "This is what we all came here to do," said senior quarterback Matt McGloin. "We've had all this thrown at us. It was tough to deal with.

If he told them once, he told them a thousand times: This was their year. They were seniors. They were going to win a South Jersey title in football. That was Kyle Pszenny. He could talk. His voice was a constant in the huddle, in the locker room, in the classroom, in any social situation. "Kyle is the kind of kid, he lights up a room," Pennsville High School senior Jeremy Boucher said. "He could talk to anybody about anything. " For the senior captains of Pennsville's newly crowned championship team - Boucher, Matt Widmaier, Ryan Simpkins and Josh Van Blarcom - their close friend's constant chatter didn't truly stop during the Eagles' sad and sweet and "surreal" run to the little Salem County school's first sectional title in football in 34 years.

Will Smith  says his upbringing as a football-loving Eagles fan made it difficult, at first, to accept the science behind his new movie "Concussion. " Smith plays Dr. Bennet Omalu , the Nigerian-born Pittsburgh pathologist who discovered degenerate disease (he named it CTE) in the brains of deceased football players, making him an enemy of the NFL. "My son played for four years, and it was some of the most beautiful time that we've had together," Smith, 47, told ABC News.

Fran Ganter, who served on Joe Paterno's coaching staff at Penn State for 33 years before taking over as the university's associate athletic director for football administration in 2004, has announced his retirement, effective Thursday. Ganter, a running back for the Nittany Lions from 1967 through 1970, spent 20 of his years on Paterno's staff as offensive coordinator. Paterno added the title of assistant head coach to his duties in 2000. "I am very proud and thankful to have been a member of the Penn State football family for the past 46 years," Ganter said in a statement.

WHEN MATT Donoghue was in middle school, he wasn't trying to become the next Jason Peters. At that point in his athletic development, he wanted to be more like Ryan Howard. Donoghue didn't even play football yet. His sport was baseball, and he played first base. But things change. At some point, baseball just wasn't getting it done for him anymore. It happens. Instead, he tried something different. At first he was a defensive lineman and tight end. As a sophomore at Garnet Valley High he switched to the offensive line.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - Notre Dame got everything it wanted, and the Atlantic Coast Conference got Notre Dame. The school announced Wednesday that it would join the ACC in all the conference's sports except football, though it will play five games annually against league programs and have access to its non-BCS bowl tie-ins. It's unclear exactly when the Irish will leave the Big East for its non-football sports. "I don't think there's out there a better situation than the situation we have," said the Rev. John I. Jenkins, Notre Dame's president.

Woodstown defensive back Dillon Hill admits that his final football game will be an emotional one, simply because he never wanted to see his career end. Hill will participate Wednesday in the Adam Taliaferro Foundation All-Star Football Classic at Rowan University. The game, which features many of the top graduating seniors in South Jersey, will kick off at 7 p.m. Listed on the roster at 5-foot-5 and 145 pounds, Hill was hoping to play college football but was told by many that he was too small.
