A few hours after Father Judge's 41-32 nonleague win over St. Anthony's (N.Y.) at the Northwest Super Site on Saturday, Yeedee Thaenrat headed up the turnpike to see Rutgers play Penn State. The junior running back already has a scholarship offer from the Scarlet Knights, and if days like Saturday are any indication, he's likely to add many more offers. Thaenrat rushed for three touchdowns and more than 170 yards on 21 carries, including an 88-yard strike on the first play of the second half.

The Woodstown defense had just allowed a 1-yard touchdown run in overtime, but had little time to think about the play. Penns Grove, down a point, lined up for the two-point conversion and gave the ball to running back Zaire Robinson, who had scored on the previous play. This time, though, the Wolverines swarmed Robinson, and Woodstown edged Penns Grove on the road, 21-20, in a West Jersey Football League Diamond Division opener. Dillon Hill scored from 7 yards to put Woodstown ahead in the extra period.

After a week the NFL would love to forget, things were ugly once the players took to the field. Jamaal Charles sprained an ankle after accumulating just 12 total yards. Robert Griffin III suffered a nasty dislocated ankle just before teammate DeSean Jackson was knocked out with a shoulder injury. The Dolphins lost new starting RB Knowshon Moreno (dislocated elbow), reportedly for at least a month, on his first carry. A.J. Green was bounced by a strained foot before he could register a catch.

After two early touchdowns, Clearview's offense couldn't get much going on Friday night. So the Pioneers' special teams took matters into their own hands. Joseph Coles blocked a punt, and Gary Searle recovered it in the end zone with two minutes remaining, as the visiting Pioneers upset No. 6 Delsea, 21-14, in a West Jersey National football game. Nahir Nelson scored a pair of first-quarter touchdowns to put Clearview ahead by 14-0, but Delsea rallied to tie it before halftime on touchdown runs by Isaiah Spencer and Quinn Collins.

Ibrahim Kallie wasn't supposed to be on Coatesville's football team this year. The Red Raiders eyed another soccer player, who lost interest in kicking once he found a college scholarship for his first sport. So, three weeks ago, Coatesville gave Kallie a shot. Friday, the Red Raiders finally needed him to kick something other than an extra point. It just so happened that Coatesville needed Kallie at the most crucial moment of an early-season showdown. Kallie delivered. He drilled a 40-yard field goal with five seconds left to propel No. 7 Coatesville to a 24-21 win over 10th-ranked Roman Catholic in a nonleague home game.

Wondering whether to start Peyton Manning and Calvin Johnson or to bench Johnny Manziel and Eddie Royal? The network bozos specialize in that kind of advice. If you're looking for help with your real starting lineup conundrums, read on. Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 2.   Watch 'em roll Carson Palmer, QB, Cardinals at Giants. The old man proved he's still got some moxie - even scrambling for 29 yards against the Chargers - and it doesn't hurt that he's blessed with a very talented receiving corps.

A FEW WEEKS ago, coach Steve Quigley was so worried about how few kids came out for the first varsity football team in Strawberry Mansion High School history that he drove through the neighborhood searching for players. "I drove up and down Susquehanna, Lehigh, Diamond," Quigley said. "I pulled one kid over who was riding his bike and told him, 'We're having physicals for the new varsity football team.' He never showed up. Another kid said his girlfriend had a baby and he had to work to support them.
