TEMPLE'S FOOTBALL team is practicing 15 times this spring. None can be at the program's 10th and Diamond facility because Chudoff Field is being resurfaced. Which means Matt Rhule's guys are hitting the road. The Owls will have 10 scheduled workouts at Camden High's Farnham Park, one (Alumni Day) at Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church (site of the old Temple Stadium), one at Haddon Township's Paul VI High, one at Plymouth Whitemarsh High and another on campus at Geasey Field, which used to be their practice site.

Looking ahead, he hopes to attend a Division 1 college or university where he could play football. And it's no surprise that he dreams of joining a pro team one day. When Jhanviey is not engaged in sports, he enjoys testing his skills at video games.

Devon Dredden was not on the football field last fall, but his presence undoubtedly was. At Cheyney University, his twin brother, DeAndre, donned his number, 32. Teammates decorated helmets with orange ribbon decals with Devon's name. Players at his alma mater, Overbrook High School in Pine Hill, sold T-shirts with his name and a message: "Don't give up! Don't ever give up!" It's a mantra that Devon, a 20-year-old Berlin Township native, has taken from the field to his fight against leukemia - and one that last weekend earned him an award for courage from his church, Green Grove Baptist.

After a successful 19-year stint, Mark Schmidt has stepped down as Neshaminy High's head football coach. "I thought it was the right time to move on," Schmidt, 53, said. "I've been thinking about this for a year or two. You don't want to wear out your welcome. This gives someone else a chance to take over and keep things going in the right direction. " Schmidt, who guided the Redskins to a 161-66 record (.709 winning percentage) and won three PIAA District 1 Class AAAA championships, submitted his letter of resignation Monday to Neshaminy School District officials and also spoke to his players.
