Through all the years, the grueling workouts and the pain of a myriad injuries, Kevin Kelly has kept running. Every day, he laces up his running shoes and hits the road, doing 50, 60, sometimes 90 miles a week. In fact, at age 30, Kelly is running better than ever. And every once in a while, everything comes together to remind him why he has kept at it and why he keeps going. "Sometimes, you're in a race and it feels so good," Kelly said. "It feels like you can fly. " That's a feeling worth working for, and one Kelly has been getting more and more frequently.

A 35-year-old Chester man was found guilty of second-degree murder yesterday in the April 1996 shooting of a man found in the stairwell of his Chester boarding house. Kevin Kelly sat without expression last night as the verdict was read in a Delaware County courtroom empty save for three female members of his family and, on the other side, the victim's mother. The conviction means that Kelly, of the first block of 22d Street, will get a mandatory sentence of life imprisonment without parole for the slaying of Sam London.

Kevin Kelly isn't complaining about the problems that first-year coaches generally complain about. That is because Kelly, in his first year as basketball coach at Williamson Trade, has been successful. "I didn't have goals concerning wins and losses," Kelly said. "I just wanted the kids to get back to working hard. I figured the wins and losses would take care of themselves. " The Mechanics beat Valley Forge Christian, 77-73, in overtime Wednesday to improve to 9-8. With six games left, Williamson is on course to post a winning season after last season's 9-13 campaign.

Basketball has been a part of Kevin Kelly's life since he started playing when he was 5. It was love at first sight with the game, and he often played his older brother one-on-one in the driveway. In 1997, his affair with the game was put on hold. Coaching in a summer league, Kelly developed a high fever, chills and dizziness, and was admitted to a hospital. He did not come home for nine days after being diagnosed with leukemia, the Philadelphia-chromosome positive type, which is deadly.

Sun Valley coach Kevin Kelly took aside his players after a recent scrimmage and began to preach. He spoke of team unity, defense and heart. He spoke of diving for loose balls and playing smart. And he spoke of academics and commitment to the team. Minutes into the speech, Kelly was on a roll. And the Vanguards players were starting to get charged up. Then, Kelly got really dramatic. He pointed to the gym wall on which all of the school's sports banners hung. He pointed to the boys' basketball banner, which had no championships listed.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - For much of the season, Penn State coach James Franklin has praised the play of true freshmen Grant Haley and Christian Campbell on special teams. During Saturday's 30-13 victory over Temple that made the Nittany Lions bowl-eligible, Franklin applauded the pair for their play at cornerback. Haley, who has returned 24 kickoffs this season, returned one of P.J. Walker's four interceptions 30 yards for a fourth-quarter touchdown. Campbell, who started in place of the injured Trevor Williams, also had a pick late in the third quarter.

Penn State fans probably don't want to hear this, but kicker Kevin Kelly might be the Nittany Lions' best offensive option this season. If so, expect to hear a lot of: "And Kelly comes in to attempt another field goal. " If there is a blue-and-white lining to the inability of the Lions' offense to reach the end zone, it's that Kelly appears to have rebounded from a shaky end to his freshman season and an injury-marred, inconsistent sophomore season. Through four games, the 5-foot-7, 167-pound Kelly leads the team in scoring, connecting on 6 of 8 field-goal tries and 16 of 16 extra-point attempts.

Kevin Kelly couldn't understand why everyone was so nervous as the diminutive Penn State kicker walked onto the Dolphins Stadium field for his third try at winning Tuesday night's Orange Bowl. Sure, the freshman from Neshaminy High already had missed two field goals - a 29-yarder and a 38-yarder - that would have cut down on the nearly five hours and three overtimes the Nittany Lions needed in their thrilling 26-23 win over Florida State. But didn't the multitude of Penn State fans watching in person or on national television know there was little cause for worry?

As Penn State's players, in mostly conservative jackets and ties, walked on the Michigan Stadium turf before their Oct. 15 game there, it was easy to pick out the freshman placekicker. Kevin Kelly stuck out like a sore toe. He was the only one wearing a pink tie. The Neshaminy High grad was, at 5-foot-7 and 173 pounds, dwarfed by his teammates. The squeaky-voiced Kelly still doesn't look or sound much like a football player. But, in helping Penn State win nine of the 10 games he has played in, he certainly has acted like one. With one regular-season game left, at Michigan State on Saturday, the freshman from Bucks County already has set a Penn State first-year scoring record with 86 points.

Kevin Kelly attended his older sister Meghan's Irish dance competitions in the late 1990s. But before Meghan performed, Kevin was kicking it up himself. He wasn't, however, doing the jig, reel or hornpipe. He was practicing field goals or extra points at the nearest field. Somehow he didn't miss many kicks, or his sister's performances. "We made sure we didn't do that," said Kelly, who was usually accompanied by his father, Terry. All that practicing paid off for Kelly, a varsity kicker the last four years for Neshaminy, the 13-1 team that will aim for its second PIAA Class AAAA football championship in four years tomorrow when it faces Pittsburgh Central Catholic (15-0)
