St. James coach Marty Moke has a predetermined system for building his football team each season. "I take my best players and put them on defense and special teams. Then, I fill out the offense with the rest of the guys," Moke said. "This year, we're young on both sides of the ball. So, I'm really depending on my defense. " Yesterday, though, Moke's offense played controlled football to spark the Bulldogs to an impressive, 20-7 victory over St. John Neumann. Led by junior quarterback Stanley Bystrek, senior running back Anthony Barber and six receivers, the Bulldogs racked up 235 yards of total offense.

The faithful still bring their cares to the fourth bishop of Philadelphia. St. John Neumann, vested in white for Mass and wearing his miter, lies encased in a glass-sided altar at St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Church at Fifth Street and Girard Avenue in Northern Liberties. When he died in 1860, Neumann had such a reputation for holiness that supplicants began coming to his burial place to pray. They beseeched the late bishop, whom they regarded as a special friend of God, to seek divine favor for them.

As the St. James Bulldogs head into the fourth game of their six-week Catholic League South football schedule, they can look at the standings and see only one other undefeated team: Cardinal O'Hara. That's the same Cardinal O'Hara that knocked St. John Neumann from the company of the undefeated over the weekend. The same O'Hara that upset St. James in the playoffs last year. And the same O'Hara that the Bulldogs will visit in the last league game of the season. But before the Bulldogs (3-0, 4-0-1)

St. John Neumann, which toppled one nationally ranked team in winning its division of the Slam Dunk to the Beach Holiday Basketball Tournament last week, upended another last night. David Crawford scored 19 points and three other Pirates reached double figures as the Pirates downed visiting Roman Catholic, 72-63, in the Catholic League opener for both schools. The Pirates (9-2 overall, 1-0 league) defeated No. 12 Montrose (Md.) Catholic to capture its Slam Dunk crown; Roman entered play as the country's No. 16 team, according to one national publication.

Ivan Brown wore the look of a road-weary hitchhiker who had seen one car too many zoom past his outstretched thumb. The Monsignor Bonner senior guard, who had just played a basketball game that resembled a track meet, was praising his counterpart, Frank Giunta of St. John Neumann, who led the Pirates to a 62-52 Catholic League Southern Division victory over host Bonner yesterday. Neumann improved to 9-7 and 2-2 in league play. Bonner is 14-3, 2-2. "Giunta does a good job for them.

Roman Catholic football coach Ed Brodbine had a feeling that John Spino was going to do something special in yesterday's Catholic League South Division opener against St. John Neumann. "John had a great week of practice," Brodbine said after Spino rushed for 160 yards and three touchdowns on only six carries - and also intercepted a pass - in Roman's 43-7 victory. "He was so intense all week," Brodbine added. "He seemed like he really had something to do. Then he comes out and does this.

It was unclear which Archbishop Carroll football team would show up for Friday night's Catholic League quarterfinal playoff game against St. John Neumann. Would it be the smooth outfit that started the season? Or the out-of-synch bunch that was buried by Monsignor Bonner five days earlier? As it turned out, a little of both Carroll teams showed up, and that was enough for the Patriots to beat Neumann, 21-0, under the lights at Plymouth- Whitemarsh. "We didn't have a good week of practice," said senior receiver and defensive back Pete Hinckle, who had a 91-yard interception return for a touchdown.

Brian Fluck offered his opinion on one of the top running backs in the Catholic League's Blue Division this season. "Once he gets into the open field, he can really turn it on," the West Catholic coach said. "And he's very good at breaking tackles. " That pretty much describes West Catholic's Curtis Brinkley, a junior tailback and 2,000-yard rusher this season. But Fluck was talking about St. John Neumann's Jimmy Porreca, a hard-nosed fullback who has the same determination as Brinkley, but not the record-setting numbers or notoriety.

Two weeks ago, following a 27-19 win over St. Joseph's Prep, the Archbishop Carroll football players dreamt about a Catholic League South championship. The dream has turned into a nightmare. Carroll lost, 18-16, to St. John Neumann yesterday in a showdown for the fourth and final Catholic League South playoff berth. St. Joseph's Prep won the regular-season title. Kennedy-Kenrick finished second. The Patriots beat both of them, but can only watch when the league playoffs start Friday.

All Cardinal O'Hara had to do yesterday to secure fourth place and the final playoff berth in the Catholic League South was beat St. John Neumann. Well, the Lions made life a little harder for themselves. They lost, 62-59, forcing a one-game playoff with the Pirates on Wednesday at Monsignor Bonner. O'Hara held a one-game edge over Neumann entering the game. By losing, O'Hara (10-15 overall, 7-7 league) became involved for the second straight year in a one-game playoff to determine the last Catholic South playoff spot.

As Catholic Health Care Services chief executive John Wagner often says, building affordable housing is a long process, and you quickly realize you'll never be able to build enough. Yet Wagner keeps trying, and St. John Neumann Place II, at 2627 Mifflin St. in South Philadelphia, is the newest example of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia's efforts to try to meet the needs of the area's seniors. The $15 million project broke ground in August on 1.39 acres of the campus of the former St. John Neumann High School.

The Philadelphia School Partnership Tuesday announced a grant of $300,000 to SS. John Neumann and Maria Goretti High School to begin an academic transformation.

Officials said the goal was closing the achievement gap and improving the academic success of all students. Forty-five percent of the 500 students at Neumann Goretti are members of minority groups; 48 percent come from low-income families.

HAMBURG, Pa. - Haneef Vaughn is one of the city's most tenacious defenders on the basketball court. At 6-foot-1, with long arms, quick hands, and fleet feet, the Constitution senior is a constant disrupter on defense. However, it was his offensive limitations that turned him into an excellent defender. "Before, I couldn't shoot," Vaughn said Friday after the Generals overwhelmed St. John Neumann, 83-45, at Hamburg High School. "So, if I couldn't score, my defense had to be my offense.

AT YESTERDAY'S blessing of the new atrium at the National Shrine of St. John Neumann, children sang angelically. Bishop John J. McIntyre sprinkled Holy Water and Mayor Nutter drew laughs by confessing that he was in need of the dousing he received. The celebration, which coincided with the annual Feast of St. John Neumann and the 155th anniversary of his death, also marked the beginning of the year in which the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and the city plan to host Pope Francis and multitudes of the faithful at the World Meeting of Families in September.

PHILADELPHIA turned out more than a million people to welcome and strain to see Pope John Paul II on the last papal visit to the city in October 1979. Catholics, Baptists, Unitarians, atheists - whatever their faith or lack thereof - the devoted and the curious and those in between packed the Benjamin Franklin Parkway from City Hall to the Art Museum in a sea of humanity the city had never seen before.  They had come if only to catch a glimpse of the pope, whose white vestments glowed in the autumn sunlight.  The pope spent 21 hours and 12 minutes in Philadelphia as part of his first visit to the United States.

John J. "Jack" Kraft, 93, the dapper former Villanova men's basketball coach who led the Wildcats to the 1971 NCAA championship game, has died, an athletic department spokesman said Thursday night. Details of his death were not immediately known. Mr. Kraft, who was unflappable and always in control on the bench, coached Villanova for 12 years before moving on to Rhode Island. He finished with an overall record of 361-191 in 20 seasons, including a 238-95 mark with the Wildcats. His .715 winning percentage is the highest of any of the school's men's basketball coaches.
