STATE COLLEGE - Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's the "Supa Six," and it could save the future of Penn State football. This upstart group of young Nittany Lions - namely, running back Bill Belton, wide receiver Allen Robinson, defensive end Deion Barnes, cornerback Adrian Amos, offensive tackle Donovan Smith and tight end Kyle Carter - all made big in-game contributions to a resilient 8-4 Penn State team this season. But more importantly, perhaps, the six seem committed to Penn State for the long haul, which could play a huge role in keeping Penn State football afloat through sanctioned times.

Hello there Katie and Pat met one night in spring 2006 toward the end of their junior year at Villanova University, when a group of friends and friends-of-friends hung out at Brownie's 23 East bar. By the time fall and senior year rolled around, Katie, who studied political science, and Pat, an accounting major, were Garrett Avenue neighbors. That meant they often walked home together after nights out with friends. Their friendship deepened. And by spring semester, the two would text each other to make sure both would be at group gatherings.

SOUTH PLAINFIELD, N.J. - When Megan Kirschling soared over the high-jump bar at 5 feet, 101/2 inches, she didn't just break her own personal record. She also made state history. The mark broke the Group 2 record first set in 1998, and put the West Deptford junior in a tie for second on the all-time state list. The jump also matched a nearly 30-year-old record for the all-group meets. "There are always those butterflies," Kirschling said. "Once I hit the first jump, then it's just take a deep breath and see how high I can go. " After the successful record-setting attempt, Kirschling couldn't clear the bar on three attempts at 6 feet.

Two were from South Jersey - Shawnee in 1992 and Camden in 2000. Atlantic City, the two-time Group 4 state champion, will try to become the third.
