Noah Lejman said Thursday afternoon's nonleague game against Roman Catholic was more than just a final tune-up for Inter-Ac League play. "We're trying to build the Haverford School name in football," the senior tight end and outside linebacker said. "We wanted to prove that we're one of the best teams around. " Lejman and the host Fords did just that, breaking open a close game in the second half and blasting the turnover-prone Cahillites, 41-22, at Haverford's Sabol Field. Haverford, which came in ranked No. 6 in Southeastern Pennsylvania by The Inquirer, racked up 346 rushing yards on 44 attempts in turning back No. 9 Roman.

MICKEY KOBER plays football like someone is going to take away his beloved game. Yesterday, the 6-foot, 205-pound inside linebacker led a penny-pinching Haverford School defense in what turned into a lopsided 41-22 victory over visiting Roman Catholic. Kober, a junior captain who also wrestles for the Fords, finished with a pair of interceptions, forced a fumble, recovered another and added a sack for good measure. Not bad for the young man who missed most of freshman football with a pair of fractured vertebrae, then missed the PIAA championships with a torn meniscus during his sophomore season as a grappler.

Judging by the records alone, St. Joseph's Prep's 1-0 win over Archbishop Wood should have registered as a titanic soccer upset. In the Catholic League, they call that Tuesday. Michael Carr's breakaway goal late in the second half gave the Hawks the major victory they've been on the verge of all season. Andrew Magiera, who had come in as a substitute, made the pass to spring Carr. Francis Maniscalco had six saves. The Prep (3-3-4 overall, 3-2-1 league) had won just one of its previous seven games, but that doesn't tell the story.

Nowadays, when high school athletes make commitments for collegiate athletics, many times announcements are shrouded in secrecy in an attempt to build suspense. Yesterday, at the Haverford School, friends and family gathered in the school's field house to hear what school nationally sought-after recruit Levan "Shawn" Alston would choose. Throughout the recruiting process, Virginia Commonwealth basketball coach Shaka Smart pushed hard, previously making a 6:45 a.m. visit to show his interest.

Levan Alston was looking for his dad's old Temple jersey on Monday night, but the search through the family's West Philadelphia home was unsuccessful. Alston thought it would be the perfect complement when he announced Tuesday morning that he was following his dad's path to play basketball for the Owls. A few hours before the news conference, there it was. "I found it in a clutter of stuff in the basement," said Alston. "It was a nice find. " The 6-foot-4 guard unzipped his black sweatshirt to reveal his dad's cherry-colored jersey with the same No. 10 the younger Alston wears at Haverford School.

Lamar Stevens used to watch older basketball players at the Haverford School gather college offers. And he said he always wanted it to be him. "Now that it is me, it's a little surreal," the junior said. It's also starting to get busy for Stevens. Stanford will visit him at school on Sunday. Vanderbilt will check in later in the week. The 6-foot-6 small forward will visit Penn State on Oct. 25 and Indiana on Nov. 14. He has scholarship offers from Indiana, Penn State, La Salle, St. Joseph's, Temple, Villanova, and others.

THERE ARE some questions that seniors in high school should never have to ask. Questions that are deep, philosophical and largely unanswerable. Queries that can, if you let them, stunt your growth, stifle your ambition or paralyze your progression. However, for Haverford School senior running back and linebacker Phil Poquie, a single question and all its permutations, weigh heavily on his mind, but also spur him toward success. When civil war erupted in his native Liberia, Poquie was just 2 years old. His family fled to the United States, sent for by a grandfather who lived in Staten Island, N.Y., to begin life anew, rich with possibilities.

Paul Dooley went all-out in preparing for his senior year of football at Springside Chestnut Hill Academy. The strong-armed quarterback skipped playing basketball last winter to improve his skills, worked regularly with a personal trainer, and attended a number of showcase camps. Reaping the dividends of his offseason preparation, Dooley, a second-year starter under center, has directed the Blue Devils to a 3-0 start. In the rain Saturday afternoon, the 6-foot, 202-pound captain threw a pair of touchdown passes and ran for two more in a 31-14 nonleague triumph over visiting Mastery North Charter.

Ibrahim Kallie wasn't supposed to be on Coatesville's football team this year. The Red Raiders eyed another soccer player, who lost interest in kicking once he found a college scholarship for his first sport. So, three weeks ago, Coatesville gave Kallie a shot. Friday, the Red Raiders finally needed him to kick something other than an extra point. It just so happened that Coatesville needed Kallie at the most crucial moment of an early-season showdown. Kallie delivered. He drilled a 40-yard field goal with five seconds left to propel No. 7 Coatesville to a 24-21 win over 10th-ranked Roman Catholic in a nonleague home game.
