DAN MARINO has filed a lawsuit against the NFL, claiming he is suffering from concussion-related injuries, according to a report. The Los Angeles Times reported the former quarterback, who played his entire 17-year career with the Dolphins, is one of 15 former players to file a suit last week in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia. According to the report, the players claim the league withheld information about football-related brain injuries. They are seeking benefits and an unspecified monetary settlement.

Rosalyn McPherson has held many positions over the years: educator, entrepreneur, and museum administrator, among others. In July, McPherson, who since 2005 has headed her own strategic marketing and communications company, the Roz Group in Center City, will take the helm of the Urban League of Philadelphia as the organization's president and CEO. "This is an exciting possibility," McPherson said in an interview last week. "When I look at where I am in my career, this is a wonderful way to culminate by taking all of my experiences and really throwing myself into making a difference for my own community.

TO THE VICTORS go the photo shoots. After Ss. Neumann-Goretti claimed its third Catholic League championship in 4 years yesterday with an 11-0 win against Roman Catholic, the Saints' "Big Three" gathered on the infield between first and second base on Ward Field at La Salle College High. With junior southpaw Pat Doudican and sophomore righty Ethan Pritchett each clutching the championship plaque, the duo summoned yesterday's hero, senior lefty Charlie Jerla, for a photo-op with former longtime Daily News sports writer Ted Silary.

With Cliff Lee on the 15-day disabled list due to a left elbow strain, Lehigh Valley IronPigs righthander David Buchanan will make his major-league debut for the Phillies in Saturday's 3:05 p.m. game against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Citizens Bank Park. The Phillies will have to make a corresponding move before the game in order to add Buchanan to the roster. Buchanan was a nonroster invitee to spring training, who impressed the Phillies by posting a 2.25 ERA, while striking out 11 and walking two in 12 innings in five games.

Sarah Rosenberg does not run the bases - often, at least. For the star pitcher on the Central softball team, it is just too risky. But strange circumstances led to the senior's scoring the most important run of the season Thursday at Philadelphia University. Serving as a pinch-runner for herself, of all things, Rosenberg slid across home plate in the bottom of the seventh inning to give Central a 6-5 win over Franklin Towne Charter and claim the Lancers' second Public League championship in three years.

IT WASN'T so much that Pat Doudican was fooled by the pitch; it was more that his eyes were bigger than his bat. So, after he violently swung and whiffed at a high fastball in the third inning, Doudican stepped back in the box and twice clunked himself on the head, perhaps drilling the message home with force. "It looked good at first," he smiled. "Then, by the time I was swinging, I was like, 'Pssssh, what am I doing here?' I knew I had to have more discipline than that and I wasn't going to let that pitch ruin the rest of my at-bat.

PROBABLY NEVER has the 76ers' participation in a summer league been so anticipated as it is this year. And they'll be participating in not only one, but two. Come early July, a collection of draft picks and probably some of the players who littered the roster this past season for the team will head to Orlando for a collection of games, which the organization has been involved in for the last several seasons. Immediately following those contests, some of those players, as well as others, will go to Las Vegas to participate in that league.

ALLENTOWN - The first time a Ken Giles fastball registered 100 mph, the righthander didn't learn of it until after he had wrapped up his outing. When the then-college sophomore returned to the dugout, an excited group of Yavapai College teammates swarmed around to alert him of an accomplishment seldom witnessed at any level of baseball, let alone in the Arizona Community College Athletic Conference. When Giles clocked in at 103 mph toward the end of last season with Class A Clearwater, the Phillies' pitching prospect could feel that particular fastball was different.
