Defense comes naturally to Nnamdi Njoku. He knows to keep it simple: Tackle the guy with the football. "He's nearly impossible to block," Florence coach Joe Frappolli said of Njoku, a 6-1, 210-pound defensive dervish who lines up in a varsity of positions - end, tackle, inside linebacker, outside linebacker - for the Flashes. Offense is another story for the senior who has played the game for just four years. "Tight end - I'm still getting used to it," Njoku said. "Not the blocking.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell would "absolutely" want his own child to play football. After President Obama recently said he'd "have to think long and hard" about allowing a son to take part in the sport, Goodell was asked the same question hours before Sunday's Super Bowl during an interview on CBS's Face the Nation . Like the president, Goodell has two daughters. The commissioner deflected the question about allowing a son to play football by noting the high incidence of concussions in girls' soccer.

Football and family mixed together at Lincoln Financial Field on Thursday night, just as they have throughout a long, emotional week for the Philadelphia Eagles. There was a moment of silence before the national anthem to honor the passing of Garrett Reid, the oldest son of coach Andy Reid. Later on, there was a message of thanks on the scoreboard from Reid and his wife, Tammy, acknowledging the outpouring of condolences and compassion from the entire region. Reid's two other sons, Britt and Spencer, were on the sideline for the game.

Penn State will open its football season Aug. 31 vs. Syracuse at MetLife Stadium in New York's College Classic, the teams announced Thursday. The time of the game has not been set. The Nittany Lions and Orange have met 70 times, the second-highest total for a Penn State opponent. Penn State owns a 42-23-5 series advantage, winning the most recent games, in 2008 and 2009. The teams met every season from 1944 to 1990 but did not meet again until the 2008 game in Syracuse's Carrier Dome.

Turner Classic Movies, the cable network that is a welcome antidote to 24/7 news, reality shows, and ESPN's smarm, recently ran a half day's worth of old college football movies. All were as awful as they were alike: State U. gets football hero. State U. loses football hero. State U. finds football hero in the nick of time. Throw in the dithering dean's blond daughter, an intellectually challenged lineman or two, sneering gamblers, and the familiar plots were complete. There was, however, one other recurring and relevant element to these cornball films, most of which were nearly 80 years old - the corruption of collegiate sports.
