Haverford School's players may never get their mud-caked uniforms completely clean, but don't expect the effects of their latest loss to linger. Coach Ron Algeo said the Fords would recover mentally from Saturday night's rainy, 28-6 homecoming loss to Chestnut Hill Academy. "We were prepared for a closer game physically," Algeo said. "We had a great week of practice. The kids didn't give up ever, ever, ever. They will be ready to come back Monday. " The Fords (0-4) may not have any emotional scars from Saturday's defeat, but their physical condition is another thing.

Connor Gregory was frustrated. Things didn't seem to be working out for the Haverford School junior in the first half of the Fords' Inter-Ac League soccer game against Penn Charter. Sure, he scored off a tremendous free kick in the fourth minute, but after that, shots were just missing the net for the forward. At the intermission, Gregory made sure, he said, to "settle" himself. He even apologized to his teammates in the huddle before the second half started, taking responsibility for his squad being deadlocked with Penn Charter after 40 minutes of play.

While Haverford School coach Mike Murphy talked to his football team circled around him about its resiliency, quarterback Brendan Burke stood by himself. Burke looked on from a step behind his teammates while he fought back tears in an outpouring of emotion, listening to a speech that was especially significant to him. After he lost five of his first six starts, the senior captain came off the bench to lead his team to a 34-31, double-overtime win Saturday at league favorite Malvern Prep in both teams' Inter-Ac opener.

Swimming coach Bill Palmer thought his team at The Haverford School would win only three meets this year. The Fords have already exceeded his expectations by winning four of their first five meets, two last week. Haverford School edged visiting Haverford High on Wednesday, 41-35, in a nonleague meet. One day later, Haverford School beat Upper Darby, 97-67. "The boys have been surprising me," Palmer said. "It's a great team with a lot of character. These boys are doing everything a coach can ask them to do. " Palmer didn't have to stress the need for a win in the freestyle relay against Haverford High.

Haverford School's Matt Galambos, a rugged senior linebacker, committed to Pittsburgh on Thursday. The 6-foot-2, 235-pounder, who doubles as a tight end, also had scholarship offers from Rutgers, Syracuse, and Temple. Harvard and Yale were in the mix, too. "I think he's been a bit underrated," Haverford School coach Mike Murphy said. "I really see him as a kid who's going to make a big impact at the college level. His best football is still ahead of him. " Last season, while helping the Fords to a 6-4 record, Galambos earned Inquirer third-team all-Southeastern Pennsylvania honors as a tight end. In the Inter-Ac League, he was a first-team pick on both sides of the ball.

For Bernstorf, who coached Columbus to a 14-0 mark and a state title in 1987, The Haverford School job will mean a return home - geographically. He is a 1976 graduate of Haverford High.

Charles Kelly keeps his lacrosse stick in his team's ice cooler. Kelly handles faceoff duties for the Malvern Prep lacrosse team. During summer tournaments last year, the weather was so hot it caused the head of his stick to bend back almost all the way to the shaft. The flexibility left him with a competitive disadvantage. He had to find a solution. "My dad came up to me and said, 'Why don't you try sticking it in the cooler? It will cool it off and help it stay in place,' " Kelly said.

Filling in for injured halfback O'Shaan Allison, Zac Fernandez proved to be the X-factor for Malvern Prep in its nonleague triumph Friday night over La Salle. Fernandez, usually a slotback, carried 17 times for 94 yards and made an 11-yard touchdown catch as the Friars topped the Explorers, 21-12, at Franklin Field. Allison, a junior who rushed for 1,500 yards and 18 scores last season, sat out after suffering a shoulder injury in the previous week's 47-30 loss to South Jersey's St. Augustine Prep.

It is clear that the starting running back for the Haverford School will be a force to be reckoned with this season. The only thing murky, however, is how to spell his first name. The player, a senior headed to Colgate next season, prefers Malik Twyman. He said his mother, Carol Twyman, prefers Mallik. His father, Charlie, spells it Malik. No matter how many L's are used, Twyman led the Fords to a historic "W" Saturday night against host Del-Val Charter. Haverford School dominated the Warriors, 43-6, and set a school record with its 20th consecutive victory.

Downingtown East coach Mike Matta lost a number of key offensive starters to graduation, including a pair of Division I recruits, a 1,000-yard rusher and a savvy quarterback. But a stalwart defensive line, possibly the best since the program started in 2003, has Matta optimistic about continued success for the Cougars. "We're big up front. We have guys who are really quick off the ball, and there's a good amount of experience there," he said. Coaches realize that defensive line play is often the difference between winning and losing.

The area is brimming with quick, physical, and explosive running backs heading into the 2016 campaign. St. Joseph's Prep senior D'Andre Swift, one of the most dynamic and versatile performers in Southeastern Pennsylvania football history, heads the list.

It's not always easy for a quarterback and receiver to get on the same page. It takes precision timing, a strong feel for each other's abilities, and lots of practice reps. This year in Southeastern Pennsylvania, a number of top-notch signal-callers and rock-solid pass catchers have that special bond. It should translate into plenty of eye-popping aerial hookups. Last season's most prolific passer is back. Stephen Sturm threw for a whopping 3,100 yards and 31 touchdowns while leading Perkiomen Valley to a 10-2 record and the PIAA District 1 Class 4A quarterfinals.
