EVENTUALLY for Brandon Shima, it came down to logic and simple mathematics. But, when Haverford School lacrosse coach John Nostrant asked the junior attacker to become a midfielder, there was a moment of trepidation. "I was a little iffy about it at first," Shima said, "but I think I adapted to it, and now I love the position. " At 5-9 and 155 pounds, he has a reason that requires little deduction: The less you go against big guys with long sticks, the better. "Dodging against the shorties," Shima said, is his favorite part of the new gig. "Having someone that doesn't have a 6-foot pole in their hands makes it a lot easier to get some separation and get my hands free to shoot.

LET'S GET the magic, Constitutional language out of the way first. Nothing I am about to say presumes guilt. We all learned from some Duke lacrosse players where that tends to lead. But, assuming, arguendo, that some local prep-school graduates did what the Montgomery County D.A. says they did and spearheaded an upscale drug cartel, we are left with this: Ingratitude can be criminal. I should probably put all my cards on the table at the outset. Twenty-some years ago, I taught AP French at the Haverford School.

The investigation into a Main Line high school drug ring began months ago. Police arrested one alleged ringleader in February. But school administrators said this week that they didn't know about the probe until hours before authorities Monday announced the arrests of 11 people and unveiled a cache of seized drugs, cash, and weapons. The admission underscores what has become a frustration among some law enforcement agencies vying to root out networks that peddle to teens: Collaborating with schools during investigations can be difficult - or even counterproductive.

WHEN NEIL SCOTT moved to California in 2010 he did so, in part, to escape the drug scene in Philadelphia, according to his old boss. But a relationship that Scott, now 25, had with a much older woman out west may have been his downfall. Timothy Brooks, 18, knew of Scott because the two had attended the Haverford School, where both played lacrosse. But it wasn't until an injury sent Brooks home last year after just a semester at college that the two became acquainted, according to Brooks' lawyer.

The texts between the friends appeared to be about the dearth of good marijuana back when they were Main Line prep school students - and how their fledgling drug business could take off. Timothy C. Brooks asked Neil K. Scott if he had ever envisioned such success. "Only dreamed of it," Scott allegedly wrote in reply. "There is a much bigger market than just a lb each at each of these schools. " Scott, 25, of Haverford, and Brooks, 18, of Villanova, were accused Monday of being the leaders of a drug trafficking ring that sought to corner the trade across some of the western suburbs' most prominent public schools.

TWO PREP-SCHOOL grads led a major illegal-drug ring and planned to monopolize the drug trade in Philadelphia's affluent suburbs, authorities said yesterday. Using confidential informants and "controlled buys," law-enforcement authorities launched a four-month investigation into the operation allegedly spearheaded by former lacrosse players Neil Scott, 25, of Haverford, and Timothy Brooks, 18, of Villanova. "The Main Line takeover project is coming together fast," Brooks wrote in a text message to Scott, according to court papers.

OVERBROOK PARK Toney Goins and his mother remember scrambling to find a black cloak and thin mask on the eve of his debut performance in front of his sixth-grade English class. That performance, they recall, piqued Goins' interest in acting and unveiled a talent that has brought Goins to a great height. He will attend the Juilliard School for the performing arts in New York this fall, a dramatic change from the Overbrook Park section of Philadelphia. "He's going to be a professional actor - unless he chooses not to," said Ozzy Jones, who coached Goins as he prepared for the Juilliard auditions.
