GLEN MILLS always seemed to have the image of the big, bad wolf when it came to football in the Del Val League. In the 1990s, there was a groundswell of parents who did not want their sons playing Glen Mills, especially those from Sun Valley and Interboro. So Glen Mills helped the Del Val football coaches come up with a solution: Glen Mills left the league voluntarily in football, while all other Glen Mills teams opted to stay in the Del Val. But with Sun Valley leaving the Del Val for the Ches-Mont League and Harriton leaving for the Central League this season, officials at Glen Mills, a school for court-adjudicated youths, thought it was a good time to return to the Del Val in football for the first time since 1994, after playing as an independent in the interim.

The Glen Mills football program is going national. The Battling Bulls, who have compiled a 19-1 record the past two seasons, were having a tough time getting tri-state area teams to play them, so they have put together a torturous nonleague schedule. They will play games at national powerhouse Valdosta (Ga.) and Woodson High in Washington. "We've developed a tradition here at Glen Mills, and it was getting to the point where we were having a tough time getting games," Glen Mills coach Joe Ferrainola said yesterday.

Somewhere in Ohio, a fan not acquainted with the District 1 Class AAAA playoff system is ready to bet the mortgage on Glen Mills winning a Pennsylvania state championship. He should save his money. The Bulls' 42-14 rout of Ohio juggernaut St. Ignatius on Saturday was a powerful statement in the case for making strength of schedule one of the criteria in determining District 1 Class AAAA playoff berths. But it won't be anything more than a statement until the system is changed.

Glen Mills' unexpected postseason run in volleyball ended in disappointing fashion with a 15-11, 15-8 loss to Bensalem in the District 1 quarterfinals. And what was most disappointing for the Bulls was that their two stars could only sit and watch. Sophomores Shamar Cooper and Demar Parker sat out Tuesday night's match at North Penn after suffering injuries in the first match they had played that day. Glen Mills (6-10), which was seeded 13th, upset fourth-seeded North Penn, 15-12, 7-15, 15-8.

At first glance, Demitrius Johnson's 5-foot, 5-inch, 135-pound frame might fool some people about how effective he can be on a football field. Then again, how would opposing teams know. The Glen Mills' senior receiver's ability to run the 40-yard dash in 4.3 seconds usually gives them only the briefest look. Johnson's 60-yard touchdown run, along with an 83-yard scoring run by teammate Chris Dickerson, were the third-quarter scores that put the Bulls in command of their 44-0 Del-Val League trouncing of Sun Valley Friday night.

Glen Mills coach Joe Ferrainola likens his team's predicament tomorrow to the situation Cardinal O'Hara was in Sept. 18. That's when the Lions shocked Central Bucks West, 13-10, in Doylestown, ending the Bucks' 55-game unbeaten streak. Tomorrow night, Glen Mills (0-2-1) visits Berwick High, the defending PIAA state Class AAA champion - and winner of its last 19 games. "I think we're going in there with almost that same attitude that (Cardinal O'Hara) did," Ferrainola said.

A Central Bucks East player, his team having just lost a District 1 playoff game to Chester, saw Clippers star Zain Shaw walking out of the locker room. He had one thing to say to Shaw: "Beat Glen Mills. " A Delaware Valley League coach, ticking off the teams he has lost to, failed to mention Glen Mills. Reminded of this, he replied: "I don't acknowledge Glen Mills. " Before his team's district semifinal game against Glen Mills, Ridley coach John DiGregorio walked over to the press row at the Palestra, pointed to his own team being introduced by the PA announcer, and said: "This is what a high school team looks like.

When Glen Mills learned it would be playing Steelton-Highspire - and a guard who might be playing for Temple next season - in the second round of the PIAA Class AAAA tournament, the Bulls began practicing against a simulation of the Steamrollers' much-heralded zone press for an hour and a half a day. "I got tired of that press in practice," said Glen Mills point guard Frank Allen. The preparation paid off, however, as did a Glen Mills zone defense that forced the District 3 champions into an off night of shooting.

As other contenders stumbled around him, Cole Berman stayed steady and sure Thursday in the final round of the Patterson Cup while remaining keenly aware of a low number posted much earlier in the day. Berman birdied the 17th hole and hit a clutch shot out of the left rough that avoided some branches and led to a two-putt par on No. 18 to capture a 1-stroke victory in the Golf Association of Philadelphia's premier stroke-play event at Tavistock Country...

MARK WASHINGTON'S fondest memories of his mother almost all include her singing. For example, there was the Christmas concert, years ago, at the Covenant Fellowship Church in Glen Mills during the family's first year as members of that congregation. Washington, now a senior pitcher for Episcopal Academy, couldn't remember exactly how old he was, but his mother's rendition of "Go Tell It on the Mountain" is forever etched in his mind. She was the final performer of the night. "She just hit it out of the park," Washington said, grinning.

Bonner-Prendergast knocked Archbishop Wood out of the baseball playoffs three years ago on a walk-off hit by pitch in a game Friars coach Joe DeBarberie said he would never forget. Bonner-Prendergast beat visiting Archbishop Wood on another walk-off hit by pitch Thursday, 2-1, in a Catholic League matchup, and DeBarberie will have a reason to remember this victory, as well: It was the 100th of his career. "It means, for six years going into my seventh, I've had tremendous players and great coaches on my staff," said DeBarberie, who received a celebratory cake from the players' mothers after the game.

Liam Brennan, his arms folded, sat patiently on Holy Ghost Prep's bench for the first five minutes of the second half. If he was a bit antsy to return to action, you couldn't blame him. In the first half of Saturday night's PIAA District 1 Class AAA boys' basketball final against Lower Moreland, the junior guard drained seven three-pointers. Six came in the second quarter of a 65-47 romp at Villanova's Pavilion. "I was kind of upset, but it's the coach's choice," Brennan said of waiting to return to the hardwood.

Matt England and Holy Ghost Prep view the PIAA District 1 Class AAA boys' basketball playoffs as a way to gain redemption for coming up short in the bid for a Bicentennial Athletic League championship. "That was really disappointing," the senior swingman said. "If we can rebound from that and have some success, that would be a great thing. " Despite a mostly frigid shooting performance, the top-seeded Firebirds hit their free throws down the stretch and escaped fifth-seeded Glen Mills, 45-39, in a sloppy district semifinal Wednesday night at Colonial Elementary School in Plymouth Meeting.

GLEN MILLS A former counselor and teacher at the Glen Mills Schools in Delaware County has sued the facility, contending that he was fired after reporting abuse of a student. Officials at the school for court-referred teenage boys acknowledged an "inappropriate" incident in which a student was slapped in the face, but said it had nothing do with the firing of staff member Shawn MaGee. MaGee, of Havertown, said in his suit, filed last week in Delaware County Court, that on Dec. 17, 2011, he saw his supervisor, Damian Hangey, hit a student, and he reported the incident to his unit's team leader.

When Rich Ferns and Phil Stoops say they are so excited about their new business that they are jumping up and down, they mean it. They are the proud owners of a 21,000-square-foot room full of trampolines. Ferns and Stoops opened their first Sky Zone trampoline park in Glen Mills last month. They plan to open two more outposts of the national bounce house franchise in Levittown and Chalfont in the spring and summer, then expand to Philadelphia and South Jersey. Another owner already operates a Sky Zone in Oaks.
