Jack Soslow lined up for a kickoff late in Haverford School's win on Saturday afternoon. The ball had been placed 15 yards ahead of its usual spot because of a penalty on Springside Chestnut Hill. "Field goal, field goal, field goal," the Haverford School student section chanted. Booming it into the end zone, which Soslow had already done a few times, was no longer enough. The fans were prodding the senior, who is one of the area's best kickers, to send the ball through the goalposts - it wound up wide left.

Charles R. "Bud" Hollenbach, 89, of Sellersville, a legendary offensive backfield coach for the Pennridge High School Rams, died Saturday, Oct. 18, at Abington Memorial Hospital of injuries sustained in a car accident. Mr. Hollenbach was riding in a car driven by his wife, Margaret, 84, after watching their son Jeff coach a Saturday night football game between his Rams and the Central Bucks High School South Titans. As the vehicle left the Central Bucks South parking lot in Warrington, it struck an unoccupied car. The impact triggered a chain reaction with two other vehicles.

Brandon Marshall is screaming at BFF Jay Cutler. Peyton Manning breaks the all-time touchdown record, but leaves Julius Thomas out of the fun. DeMarco Murray one-ups the legendary Jim Brown. And Bills running backs drop like flies. What's next, the Jaguars are going to win a football game? It was that kind of weekend in Fantasyland. One of those quirky weeks when usually reliable studs like Marshawn Lynch, Giovani Bernard, Alshon Jeffery and Jimmy Graham are marginalized and fantasy scores are generally depressed across the board.

SAYREVILLE, N.J. - The dream of becoming a Bomber on this town's beloved high school football team begins across the street from the stadium floodlights, down the hill on the playing field tucked behind a lake. The Mighty Mites squad of 8- and 9-year-olds pad up in black jerseys, team name on front, last name and number on back. They run tackle and speed drills for two hours three days a week. When coaches speak, the players huddle and take a knee. They are still just children, and don't fully comprehend why the high school football team - the players they idolize - no longer storm the field on Friday nights.

Before deciding to concentrate on football, Michael DiFrancesco was part of Neumann-Goretti's 2012-13 basketball squad that went 23-6 and captured a fifth consecutive Catholic League title. "I played JV ball and suited up for varsity games," he said. "In practices, the coaches liked that I would be physical, put my body on people, and make them work for inside rebounds and points. " As a rugged tight end and linebacker, DiFrancesco is now leading N-G's first attempt at a gridiron crown since it won as Southeast Catholic in 1954.

Down by a point with 12 minutes to play, the Clayton football team faced a fourth and 1 from its own 16-yard line. During the timeout between the third and fourth quarters, coach Marvin Tucker made a big gamble and decided to go for the first down. The payout was just as big. Juwan Carr broke free for an 84-yard touchdown run and the go-ahead score, and Clayton won at Maple Shade, 26-20, in a WJFL interdivisional game Saturday. Tucker said the extra time between quarters contributed to the decision to keep his offense on the field.

If you were handicapping Saturday's meeting of Public League unbeatens Prep Charter and Del-Val Charter, the one thing you probably could have counted on was that the scoreboard at the South Philadelphia Super Site was going to see all the action it could handle. But that's why they play the games. The meeting of offensive juggernauts turned into a defensive tussle, and Prep Charter did enough to come away with a 13-6 victory. Vian Dolo ran for a touchdown and threw a 56-yard scoring pass to Quadir Strothers as the Huskies (8-0 overall, 4-0 Public League AAA)

Central Bucks South wanted to ease the burden on Josh Adams. The Notre Dame-bound halfback entered the week third in Southeastern Pennsylvania with 1,358 yards and 22 touchdowns for The Inquirer's 18th-ranked team. The Titans fell into an early hole against 10th-ranked Pennridge on Friday night, though, and the man they needed to ease off led the charge back. Adams ran for three touchdowns, including a go-ahead, 40-yard sprint in the fourth quarter, to lead Central Bucks South to a 28-21 home win in a Suburban One National matchup.

Lamont Harris ran himself straight to the top of a couple of South Jersey leader boards Friday night. The St. Augustine senior carried the ball 27 times for 231 yards and four scores as the Hermits hit the road and defeated Absegami, 48-6, in a Cape-Atlantic American football game. Harris, the first South Jersey player to top 1,000 yards on the ground this season, leads the area with 1,240 rushing yards. The effort also gave Harris 19 touchdowns, moving him past Jake Parola of idle Shawnee into first place in South Jersey.

SAYREVILLE, N.J. - Sayreville's mayor and Borough Council members Tuesday night defended a decision by the school district superintendent to abolish the high school football season because of a hazing scandal that has caught nationwide attention. "I thought Dr. Labbe did a courageous thing," Mayor Kennedy O'Brien said at the council meeting, referring to Superintendent Richard Labbe. "It took true strength of character. " He said it was time for Sayreville, a Middlesex County community of about 40,000 people southwest of New York City, to begin healing.
