AT FIRST GLANCE, the scoreboard at the Charles Martin Memorial field screamed the offensive prowess of St. Joseph's Prep. In last night's AAAA Catholic League championship bout, members of the Hawks' offense gallivanted into the end zone early and often en route to a rousing 46-13 victory against La Salle. However, the Prep penny-pinchers on defense dominated all night and helped the Hawks defend last season's crown. "Defense is key for us," Prep quarterback Jack Clements said.

The question has lingered in song since it was first posed in the 1960s: How many roads must a man walk down - before he becomes the subject of a major university archive devoted to helping researchers discern the meaning of his every move and utterance? The answer, my friends, ain't blowin' in the wind. The answer is at La Salle University, which runs what it believes to be the nation's only academic collection focused on songwriter, poet, and troubadour Bob Dylan. Dylan will come to Philadelphia this week to perform three shows at the Academy of Music, his first Center City appearance since 1963.

La Salle crowned a new homecoming king at halftime of the men's basketball game Saturday afternoon at Tom Gola Arena. Senior power forward Jerrell Wright was not nominated. That's OK. After the game, he showed off a more important piece of hardware: the wrestling-style championship belt given to the Explorer who grabs the most rebounds. Wright paired 10 points with 13 rebounds to help La Salle survive a sloppy first half and grind out a 57-52 win over Colgate in the season opener for both teams.

When he lines up at defensive end for St. Joseph's Prep, Jake Strain always keeps in mind the pass-rushing approach of Eagles linebacker Connor Barwin. "He always says, 'If you can't get there before the quarterback gets the pass off, make sure you put your hands up,' " the senior said. Friday night at chilly Northeast, Strain's active hands and interior toughness helped the Hawks surprisingly blast archrival La Salle, 46-13, for their second straight Catholic League Class AAAA championship.

Philadelphia University had built an exhibition reputation for itself this month, taking on Division I schools, beating James Madison and taking a one-point lead at Pittsburgh before losing by 11. On Monday night, La Salle clearly took Herb Magee's Division II Rams seriously, and the Explorers looked energized defensively from the start, grabbing a quick 18-4 lead at Tom Gola Arena on their way to a 79-61 victory in the final exhibition for both...

After his two brothers attended and played football at La Salle, Aidan Kerrigan says it was pretty much a no-brainer to follow in their footsteps. "I got a good feel for all the school had to offer," the 18-year-old said. "I knew it would be the perfect place for me academically and athletically. " Connor Kerrigan (Class of 2012) was a second-team all-Catholic League center for the Explorers; John Kerrigan (2009) played linebacker. This season, as a ball-hawking inside linebacker and senior captain, Aidan Kerrigan has played a key role in La Salle's drive to the Catholic League Class AAAA championship game.
