Former NFL star and Eagles wide receiver Irving Fryar is heading to trial with his 72-year-old mother early next year in connection with an alleged $704,000 mortgage scam. Burlington County Superior Court Judge Jeanne T. Covert set a trial date of Feb. 3 after Fryar and Allene McGhee rejected plea offers Tuesday that would have required them to admit to charges of theft by deception and to serve five years and three years, respectively, in state prison. The two also would have been ordered to repay the banks that were defrauded, according to the state Attorney General's Office, which is prosecuting the case.

Irving Fryar, head coach of the Robbinsville football team, wore black khaki shorts, an untucked black, short-sleeved polo, and a black baseball hat. His assistants wore the same - a logical choice on an 80-degree, sunny afternoon. As heat bore down on the field, Joe Frappolli walked deliberately, slowly onto the grass field at Florence High School. He didn't dress for the weather. He wore black slacks, a white, long-sleeved button-downed shirt, and a tie. It was Vince Lombardi-esque.

After 17 years of being the center of attention in the NFL, Irving Fryar is ready to share the spotlight - with his son, Londen, a junior wide receiver at Holy Cross High School in Delran. "It's all about my son now," said Fryar, the 40-year-old former Eagles receiver. "It's all about the kids. " Fryar played high school football at Rancocas Valley in the late 1970s, so he is in familiar territory. Gone are the full stadiums, the demands from the media, and the dealing with the egos of fellow players.
