Last year, guard Adam Payton transferred to Lawrenceville after being named to the all-Burlington County League Freedom Division team as a freshman at Burlington Township. "I thought it was a really good opportunity for me," Washington said.

At first glance, there is no hint of trouble on this quiet, prestigious high school campus where students, breaking between classes, toss baseballs or soak up the first strong rays of the spring sun. Certainly there is nothing to suggest that students, faculty and administrators at the Lawrenceville School, which prides itself on rock-solid stability, are locked in debate over one of the most volatile issues of the day. But suddenly, the...

It's tough enough to face a team that runs a single-wing offense, but it's even harder when three two-way starters are out with injuries. Throw in 110 yards in penalties and it becomes downright scary. But Valley Forge Military Academy survived all that in taking a 20-13 victory over the Lawrenceville School on Saturday. It was the Trojans' second consecutive win in New Jersey, and it came with Reuben White (running back/defensive back), Jim Judge (lineman) and John Massaro (center/linebacker)

Haverford School could have prepared for Lawrenceville School's single-wing offense by ordering some old Notre Dame highlight films, circa Knute Rockne. Instead, the Fords took the normal tack, which wasn't good enough. After a few days of having backups run the single wing against the first-team defense, Haverford School went up against the real thing Saturday and came out on the short end of a 20-6 score at Lawrenceville. "It's really difficult to prepare for the first time you see it," Haverford School coach Paul Bernstorf said.

Episcopal Academy worked diligently to get ready for Saturday's opponent, Lawrenceville School, which runs the almost-extinct single-wing offense. Episcopal coaches scouted the Big Red three times, and the players practiced against simulated Lawrenceville offenses every day last week. It wasn't enough. Powerful Lawrenceville (2-1), a team that features 14 players who weigh 200 pounds or more, beat Episcopal (1-2) by 35-10 in a nonleague football game. To their credit, the Churchmen did not panic against the Big Red's array of trick plays, which stemmed from the no-quarterback, three-running back set. However, the Churchmen suffered from execution problems that hurt them on several big passing plays by Lawrenceville.
