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.

Quentin Christian tossed the football into the sky, leaped, and kicked out his legs. The senior's interception in the end zone clinched Glen Mills' double-overtime 18-12 victory at Chester on Saturday afternoon in Del-Val League action. The Battling Bulls defense had been granted a second chance when Chester's game-tying touchdown was called back for offensive pass interference. The second chance, Christian said, was a blessing. And he made the most of it. The 5-foot-9, 162-pounder closely guarded the Chester receiver, snatched the pass, and soaked it in. The win was overwhelming, he said.

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.

With two weeks left in the regular season, Council Rock North, which had struggled out of the gate, was on the outside looking in when it came to being one of 26 teams to qualify for the PIAA District 1 Class AAAA baseball tournament.

Thursday afternoon at Glen Mills, Matt Schram's 15th-seeded squad continued its surprising and impressive run by edging No. 4 North Penn, 4-3, for the program's first district title since 2010 and third overall.

Jared Melone drove in 75 percent of North Penn's runs on Tuesday. The La Salle recruit could have taken the day off, and the Knights still would have been OK thanks to James Witner. Witner kept West Chester East off the board altogether in a complete game as North Penn won, 4-0, in a District 1 Class AAAA baseball semifinal at Spring-Ford Melone went 3 for 3 with a triple, a home run, and three RBIs for the fourth-seeded Knights. West Chester East was seeded No. 17. Council Rock North 10, Owen J. Roberts 6 - Brandon McIlwain drove in five runs to propel the No. 15 seed past the No. 11 seed at Glen Mills.

Eric DiPietro nicely summed up Devon Prep teammate Pat Rohr's demeanor on the mound. "He's all business," the senior third baseman said. "His expression never changes. You wouldn't know if he just struck out the side or gave up a three-run homer. " The unflappable Rohr went the distance on three days' rest as the Tide claimed the PIAA District 1 Class AA title with a 4-3 win over Springfield (Montco) Tuesday afternoon at Glen Mills. Because Rohr threw 70 pitches in four innings Friday against Bristol, Devon skipper Mark Aquilante was prepared to pull the 5-foot-11, 175-pound senior righthander after three or four innings.

John Lahm was a 25-year-old electrician helping to build a waterfront power plant in Chester when he saw the ship cruising north on the Delaware River. All around him, work stopped. Hundreds of men stood and stared at the strange-looking vessel, nearly as long as a battleship and outfitted with armlike cranes and a tall central tower. "That's the Howard Hughes boat," a man next to him said. Years passed before Lahm learned what he had seen that day in 1974: The Hughes Glomar Explorer, a CIA spy ship so secret that even now, 40 years later, the breadth of its mission has never been fully declassified.
