Football inevitably colors most Americans' Thanksgiving memories. Mine are no different. In the earliest recollection, it is the 1950s and I am gripping my grandfather's hand. On this cool holiday morning, we are walking along Wakeling Street, beneath an awning of bare poplars just east of Roosevelt Boulevard. I am not sure if he has a destination in mind, but after a few blocks I suddenly see foreboding walls and hear the muted percussion of snare drums, the hum of many voices.

They're known as the Frankenstein of football teams. The seventh- and eighth-grade boys on the Pennridge Greenjackets Pop Warner 155-pound squad practice in Perkasie, but most go to schools as much as 30 miles apart - in Quakertown, Abington, and Doylestown. Within their school district lines, the boys are rivals. But inside the yard lines, they have become a team. Now the 9-3 Greenjackets are two wins away from the biggest games in their league - the Pop Warner Super Bowl tournament - in early December at Walt Disney World.

On Friday, Mike Welsh threw three touchdown passes. For his next trick, the Shawnee senior will try to turn that into a third sectional title. Welsh completed 14 of 23 passes for 151 yards and three touchdowns to lead second-seeded Shawnee to a 28-14 victory over visiting No. 3 Bridgeton in the South Jersey Group 4 semifinals. Welsh, who also ran for 68 yards on 12 carries, is looking to become the first quarterback above the Group 1 level to win three state titles. Mike Githens added 151 yards and a touchdown on 28 carries for Shawnee, which is the two-time defending champion.

A pair of long rushes Friday had New Hope-Solebury and Springfield (Montco.) locked in a tie entering the fourth quarter. But to decide the District 1 Class AA championship, it took a short sneak. Lions quarterback Nick Garritano ran 1 yard into the end zone with less than 5 minutes remaining to give top-seeded New Hope-Solebury a 14-7 victory over No. 2 Springfield at Central Bucks West. Ben Fisher got Springfield on the board first by sprinting more than 70 yards for a touchdown.

The eyes of the college football nation were clearly on Temple and the Owls accredited themselves extremely well, albeit in a losing effort. Temple's 24-20 loss to national title contender Notre Dame on Oct. 31 was considered one of the biggest games in school history, if not the biggest. Exposure-wise it surely met that test. ESPN's College GameDay was telecast live from Independence Mall. A crowd of 69,280 attended the game and the ABC television audience averaged nearly 6 million viewers, according to ESPN.

No lead seemed safe in Week 10 as one fantasy stud after another engaged in a mind-boggling exhibition of highlight-reel plays. Antonio Brown put an exclamation point on the Steelers' victory over the Browns by taking a Ben Roethlisberger pass 56 yards to the end zone. Yet, somewhat amazingly, that barely landed among the Top 10 scoring plays of the weekend. It wasn't even the longest pass play of the day for Big Ben, who also threw a 64-yarder to Martavis Bryant that didn't score.

Tim McAneney and his coaches didn't talk about it. But they knew it was "out there. " This is the 57th season of Lenape football. Before Friday night, the Indians had never won a playoff game. That bit of business was checked off the list when Lenape survived a tough battle with Rancocas Valley, 7-0, in the first round of the South Jersey Group 5 tournament. "We didn't talk about making history," McAneney said. "But the kids knew it was out there. They've heard about it for the last two years.
