National Signing Day came and went on Feb. 7. Glenn Garrison, a standout senior linebacker at Gloucester Catholic, didn't have a scholarship offer. But he had a dream. An old one, as it turns out. "For as long as I can remember, I always wanted to play at West Virginia," Garrison said this week. Garrison will get his chance to play for his dream team. He will attend West Virginia as a preferred walk-on, with a chance to earn a scholarship after redshirting as a freshman.

NEW YORK - Johnny Manziel once reneged on a verbal commitment to Chip Kelly. Kelly returned the favor last night. Kelly, who coached Oregon when Manziel backed out and went to Texas A & M and has long gushed over Manziel's abilities, declined to pick Manziel with the 22nd pick. The Eagles traded the pick for the Browns' 26th overall pick and a third-rounder. The Browns ended Manziel's misery. The Eagles picked Louisville pass-rushing linebacker/defensive end Marcus Smith at No. 26. Or Jon Harris, again.

Eagles coach Chip Kelly broke a month of public silence about DeSean Jackson on Monday by explaining that the move to release the Pro Bowl receiver was "purely a football decision. " He said the timing of Jackson's release came from the inability to find a trade partner. "We were going in a different direction at the wide receiver position," Kelly said as the team built a playground at Prince Hall Elementary School in North Philadelphia. "Has nothing to do with anything that was ever written in a newspaper article or any off-field behavior from him. DeSean was great the year I was with him. " Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie backed his coach.

Sterling junior running back/linebacker Davon Tucker has made remarkable progress in his career with the Silver Knights. Tucker has gone from a freshman who needed to be persuaded to try out for football to a junior who has three scholarship offers from NCAA Division I programs, including Syracuse. "I'm surprised by it," Tucker said of his development. "I've worked hard. " The 5-foot-10, 200-pound Tucker ran for 1,085 yards for the Silver Knights in the fall. He led Sterling to its biggest win of the season, a 13-0 victory over eventual Group 2 champion Haddonfield.

WHEN MARTIN Luther King High head football coach Ed Dunn met with school administrators in preparation for the merger with now-closed Germantown High, he had something specific in mind. "They were asking us, 'What were our goals for the season and did we think we could win?' And I flat-out told them we could win a championship, and that was our goal from Day 1. So, the one thing I would take away from all this is: Have an audacious goal and don't be afraid to dream big. " "All this" refers to the successful 2013 season captured by the documentary film, "We Could Be King," which will appear tomorrow night at 8 o'clock on ESPN2.

AL BAGNOLI never knew any other way to do his job than all in. And he has been doing it as well as anyone for more than 3 decades. But at 61 he wasn't sure he could keep throwing 100 percent of himself into it. So he decided it was finally time for a change. "I've always been scared to death that I would overstay my welcome," said Bagnoli, who yesterday announced he was stepping down as Penn's football coach at the end of next season. "This isn't a job you can just dip your toes in. It has to be both feet, to be successful.

A YEAR IS supposed to make a difference. Last spring, Temple had a first-year coach in Matt Rhule, a former Owl assistant. And a bunch of young players who were learning new systems. There's still only a handful of scholarship seniors on the roster. Now the team is coming off a 2-10 season that included way too many near-misses. Along the way it at least saw the next quarterback emerge in true freshman P.J. Walker, who made everyone around him look better. You have to start somewhere.
