Those struggling to pay for higher education might find it hard to shed a tear for athletes on full scholarships. But a new study shows many don't get the "free ride" they may have been promised - even as colleges and coaches reap the rewards of their athletic prowess. Even with a scholarship covering tuition, fees, room, board, and books, a Division I student-athlete can expect nearly $3,000 a year in other school-related expenses, says the study by Ithaca College professor Ellen J. Staurowsky and the National College Players Association.

When he was hired in 1977 at age 23 to coach Trenton State, Eric Hamilton became the youngest college football coach in America. Having played center at Trenton from 1971 to 1974, Hamilton knew his hiring was not the move of a risk-taking administration bent on future football success. "Football wasn't very good here, and it obviously wasn't a priority," Hamilton said. "They were just looking for someone to keep it going, nothing more, nothing less. In fact, they were de-emphasizing it. " Shortly after noon on Saturday, Hamilton will lead his team onto the field against Ithaca College in New York for the first postseason game in Trenton State's history, the NCAA Division III Eastern semifinal.

Robert "Gorilla Monsoon" Marella, 62, a professional wrestler whose demeanor in the ring resembled Atilla the Hun's but whose deeds and personality were more akin to those of Santa Claus, died yesterday at his Willingboro home after being ill for the last month. During his career, which lasted from 1959 to 1980, the name "Gorilla Monsoon" was often used to describe people who were more than just big or tough. He wrestled in more than 8,000 matches worldwide and was inducted into the World Wrestling Federation Hall of Fame in 1994.

Lacrosse obviously is a big part of Brooke Crawford's life. She is a first-team All-America midfielder at North Carolina, plans to play the sport professionally after college and eventually coach it. But it's not as if she doesn't have other interests. Crawford, a Malvern resident and Great Valley High School grad, is spending a big chunk of the summer before her senior year taking classes in art history and drawing at the Lorenzo Di Medicci Institute in Florence, Italy. The six-week travel-study program, sponsored by UNC, concludes with her return Aug. 12. Her mother, Lynn Crawford, said the program is akin to a semester abroad for other college students.

Matthew Dezii is on a bus and can't understand what anyone is saying around him. He's guarding a bag of videotapes, which sits at his feet. The bus - barreling down the side of a Russian mountain - needs to arrive on the coast of the Black Sea within the next half-hour, or NBC may not have any skiing footage for the night's telecast of the Winter Olympics. Dezii, a Haddon Township native, has been interning in Sochi with NBC Sports since Jan. 25. A junior audio production major at Ithaca College in New York, he has been used by NBC as a "runner" at its International Broadcast Center throughout the games.

Brian Barber, 35, is busy. He works full-time as a psychotherapist for the poor and addicted in a mental-health clinic in Norristown. He's enrolled in a doctoral program at Chestnut Hill College to become a clinical psychologist. He's completing his practicum at Montgomery County Youth Center one day a week. And on top of all that, he's a monster Phillies fan. He was standing at the gate the other day at Citizens Bank Park, as he does about 20 games a season, when it opened at 5:30 p.m. sharp.

Among the hordes who descended on the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte daily for the trial of convicted child sex abuser Jerry Sandusky was Ellen J. Staurowsky, a Drexel University professor who has made a study of the landmark case. Each day of the trial, which began June 11 and concluded Friday, Staurowsky, a professor of sports management and an expert in social-justice issues in sports, rose at 5 a.m. so she could get a prime seat among reporters. Besides being there for research and rich, real-life material for her classes, she also writes columns for College Sports Business News, which earned her a media credential.

Pete Celebre plays football at picturesque Ithaca College in Upstate New York, where fans and even players on the field can see the blue waters of Cayuga Lake off in the distance. Ithaca is a very good college football team, but it is small-college football. Only Ithaca's big game with nearby Cortland State draws more than a few thousand fans. When those old grads in the bleachers stand up and demand that everyone shout things like "Booga! Booga! Booga! Booga!" after Ithaca touchdowns, their growling voices don't need amplification.
