Blue-chip football prospect James Spears came back to Glen Mills School from a weekend recruiting trip to the University of Maryland with his mind made up. He's going to West Virginia. Spears, a 6-foot, 6-inch, 220-pound senior defensive end and tight end with 4.65-second speed in the 40, decided yesterday to cancel his last two recruiting trips - to Syracuse and Georgia - and verbally commit to the Mountaineers. As of last night, Glen Mills officials had not been able to reach West Virginia coach Don Nehlen or anyone on his staff to tell them of Spears' decision.

Glen Mills School's century–old administration building, a vast brick castle of Dickensian foreboding, must have seemed a prison to a newly arrived Bernard Pierce in the spring of 2007. During the legal process that resulted in the 16-year-old's being sent to the Delaware County school for court-adjudicated youth, Pierce had been portrayed as angry, undisciplined, disruptive. But that day, in that gloomy place, he was just a scared kid. Pierce was there because he'd been involved in a brawl at Lower Merion High, where the football   prodigy had encountered frequent trouble.

Dave Niu's wife still thinks he is a little crazy after all these years. Niu has a passion that he is just not yet ready to let go of. Sometimes that passion causes his 40-year-old bones to feel achy and his joints to feel stiff. But when rugby is in your blood, as it is in Niu's, it's hard to turn away from the lure of the sport. And winning makes it easier to accept a few bumps and scrapes. Niu and his teammates on the Glen Mills Bulls captured the J.D. Ferrainola Cup yesterday by outlasting the Connecticut Wildcats, 32-24, in a physical, entertaining American National Rugby League championship at the Glen Mills School.

When it was over, and the Baltimore Ravens had hung on to win, 34-31, the several hundred football fans gathered at a South Jersey restaurant let out a Super Bowl-sized yell for the pride of Audubon: game MVP Joe Flacco. "We feel so proud to be from Audubon. He put Audubon on the map," said Janice Frankowsky, who lives around the corner from Flacco's parents, Steve and Karen, and went to high school with the couple in Haddon Township. Flacco, 28, who played quarterback at Audubon High, had fixed up dozens of his family members with tickets to the Super Bowl in New Orleans.
