Conestoga soccer coach Biff Sturla looked like he had wind burn. He had just watched West Chester East's Ryan Gibbs blow past his best marking back and some of his top defensive midfielders. And even though his team had won a District 1 playoff game that late October night, Sturla could still feel Gibbs' heat. "Fast? We had Paul Kravitz on Gibbs and Kravitz is a tremendous marking back," said Sturla. "And Kravitz couldn't stay with him. And he's so fast we couldn't get a another midfielder back there to help Paul most of the time.

Richard A. Gibbs, a Medford youth soccer coach whom a grand jury indicted last month on charges of molesting preteen girls, pleaded not guilty yesterday in Superior Court to the 30-count indictment. Gibbs' lawyer, Robert Agre of Voorhees, told Judge Marvin E. Schlosser that he is considering asking to have "all or parts of the indictment" dismissed. Agre said he may seek to suppress statements made by Gibbs to police. "We believe that at least as to several [counts], the allegations will not be sustained against Mr. Gibbs," Agre told reporters outside the courtroom.

A former Medford athletic coach was charged yesterday in a 35-count indictment by a Burlington County grand jury with morals offenses involving seven young girls, according to County Prosecutor Steven G. Raymond. Richard A. Gibbs, 45, was free on $180,000 bail awaiting trial on charges, which authorities said involved girls ranging in age from 7 to 11. Assistant Prosecutor Kathleen Mears Grahn said the offenses included four counts of first-degree kidnapping, because Gibbs allegedly used deception to get parents permission for the girls to be with him. Gibbs was also indicted on multiple counts of sexual assault and endangering the welfare of children.

Richard A. Gibbs, the former Medford girls' athletic coach, was sentenced yesterday to two years in federal prison for possessing hundreds of images of child pornography that he had downloaded from the Internet. A prosecutor said during the federal proceeding in Camden that psychiatric evaluations had determined Gibbs, 47, to be "a classic pedophile," an adult who has sexual desires for children. FBI agents searched Gibbs' home in August 1996 and found more than 450 child-pornography pictures on the hard drive of his computer.

A federal judge in Camden ruled after a four-hour hearing yesterday that a former Medford soccer coach charged with molesting and videotaping young girls should be held without bail. Richard A.

WHEN KYLE BUSCH suffered a broken leg and foot in the XFINITY Series race at Daytona last month, Joe Gibbs Racing needed an experienced driver to fill in for Busch. Enter David Ragan, super sub. Ragan, 29, won only one Sprint Cup race driving for Roush Fenway Racing from 2006 to 2011, the summer race at Daytona in 2011.

Michael Grant, who has become a Center City fixture as "Philly Jesus" with his long hair, beard, robes, and staff, was arrested Friday in his LOVE Park stomping grounds, shortly after taking a few laps around the new Dilworth Park skating rink. He has been charged with disorderly conduct and failure to disperse. "Those are charges that, in my experience, the government uses when you don't do whatever the government wants you to do, or that the police officer wants you to do," said Charles M. Gibbs, the lawyer Grant retained Saturday morning to represent him. Gibbs asked Grant to refer media inquiries to him. "He's a very decent young man who is simply exercising his First Amendment right of speech," Gibbs said Saturday.

'The City of Brotherly Love!" Barry Gibb announced Monday night at the Wells Fargo Center: "I know all about that!" The "Mythology Tour" is his first since the 2012 death of brother Robin. Barry, the oldest, is now the sole surviving Bee Gee. It's apparently easy to make fun of the Notorious BG - many people do. But jokes at the expense of his once-elegant coiffure, satin tour jacket, and flaring temper obscure a point so obvious it is rarely made: Gibb is the greatest songwriter of the modern pop era, adept in almost any genre, among its ablest chroniclers of the extremes of romance.

For all his accomplishments, there are things Barry Gibb has never done. As one-third of the Bee Gees, Gibb wrote, alone or with brothers Maurice and Robin, British psychedelia, pop, theatrical ballads, blue-eyed soul, disco smashes, and Euro-house. He wrote hits for brother Andy Gibb, Dionne Warwick, Barbra Streisand, and "Islands in the Stream" for Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton. Despite mega-success and tenure in the music biz, Gibb, 67, has had shockingly little opportunity to express himself apart from the Bee Gees: one solo album, Now Voyager , and two albums that he wrote for Streisand, Guilty and Guilty Pleasures . He recorded a baroque-pop effort, 1970's The Kid's No Good , that was shelved, with another unreleased solo, Moonlight Madness , and morphed into a soundtrack for the film Hawks . He has performed solo only infrequently.

As his Creighton teammates bounced all around him and interviewers gathered up the statistical stars of Friday's second-round, 67-63 slugfest over Cincinnati, Grant Gibbs walked off the court the way a middle-aged man walks from his bed in the morning, each step made as if stepping into a hot bath, body bent over just slightly. There would be no television interview for him. No podium appearance, either. The box score wasn't particularly kind - noting only five points and four rebounds for the 6-5 senior, and one more turnover than assist.

I had my little Thanksgiving-dinner witticism all ready. When it was my turn to offer a reason for being thankful, I was going to say, "I'm grateful the election is over and TV can finally get back to normal. " Never got to use it - because, as you may have noticed, news coverage this week, both local and national, went all DEFCON 4 again. The fixation this time was Black Friday. And the amount of airtime devoted to this consumer ritual was unprecedented. We're used to stock footage of people camped out days before the event, frantic hordes swarming the stores, stripping the shelves bare as they go. But this year it seemed as if TV stations were involved in some profit-sharing scheme with the big box stores.

Entering the final event before the Chase, the current wild-card drivers are Kasey Kahne (11th in points, two wins) and Kyle Busch (12th, one win).
