Mike Moosbrugger, one of the offensive-line giants who powered Central Bucks East to nearly 300 yards rushing per game this past season, has made an oral commitment to attend Wake Forest University. A first-team all-area selection by The Inquirer, Moosbrugger informed the Wake Forest coaching staff of his decision while visiting the North Carolina school this weekend. "Wake Forest is a school that's up-and-coming, and I'll have a chance to play early," said Moosbrugger, who's thinking about majoring in business law. "Academically, I can be proud to have a diploma with Wake Forest on it. " Moosbrugger played nearly every down at offensive tackle this season, as the 6-foot-7, 270-pounder had to convince college coaches that he was fully recovered from the broken leg he suffered in the first game of the 1995 season.

SOME PROSPECTS milk the recruiting process for all it's worth. And then there's Jaryd "Burger" Jones-Smith, star football lineman at West Catholic High. He's rather reserved and the last thing he craves is nonstop attention. So, while 11 schools made offers, only two received visits. Final verdict: Pitt beat Virginia. "My family and I thought Pitt was the best place for me," said Jones-Smith, who announced his decision Tuesday afternoon in West's auditorium. "I'll get the best of both worlds there - sports and academics.

Penn State lineman Elijah Robinson, a graduate of Woodrow Wilson High School in Camden and a potential starter on the offense this fall, has decided to end his career as a result of a neck injury suffered in spring practice. Team physicians said Robinson was born with a tight spinal canal. As a result, impact to his head could pinch the spinal cord, resulting in temporary or permanent paralysis, according to Wayne Sebastianelli, Penn State's director of athletic medicine. "This is a big loss for the team," coach Joe Paterno said yesterday.

Eric Rittenhouse made a vow to himself that he would participate in every play as if it were his last. That's because midway through last season, he suffered a broken left ankle that sidelined him for the rest of the season. Suddenly, the 6-foot, 215-pound two-way lineman had doubts about his football future. "I was really scared when it happened," Rittenhouse said. "I finally got cleared to work out in March and I decided that I wouldn't hold anything back, because you never know when something might end. " Rittenhouse has made good on his vow. He has been a team captain and one of Eastern's leading blockers at guard and also a top defensive tackle.

HIS HANDS are enormous, palms thick and wide, like Belgian waffles. His cleats are a size 15, perfect for chasing down ballcarriers or pancaking would-be pass rushers. At 6-4 and 304 pounds, Simon Gratz junior Raquan Thomas possesses all of the measurable numbers a two-way lineman needs for success on the football field. However, after surviving five gunshot wounds following a game in October 2013, Thomas is relieved to have narrowly avoided becoming a number on a tragic list.

The Soul had to vacate the Wells Fargo Center this summer for the Democratic National Convention. They played all but two of their home games at the beginning of the season and have one of their two home games left on Saturday against the LA Kiss, which is named after its owners, the band Kiss. And while the Sun National Bank Center in Trenton - where the game will be played - may not feel like home for most of the team, Saturday's game for one player will be like a homecoming. Soul offensive lineman Keith Newell was born and raised just blocks away from the arena and happily recited the directions to his family's house from where we stood on the field.

But on the day Smallwood, a running back from West Virginia, was drafted by his favorite team to be coached by his favorite player, the Eagles also needed to answer for concerns about Smallwood's character. Before Howie Roseman gushed about the Big 12's reigning rushing leader, he first explained that the Eagles "feel this is a good kid" whom they are "very comfortable bringing in here.

The Eagles drafted their first offensive lineman since 2013 on Friday when they selected Oregon State's Isaac Seumalo with the No. 79 overall pick. It came in the third round with the team's second pick of the draft, and it was used on a 6-foot-4, 303-pound lineman that coach Doug Pederson believes can vie for a starting job and is versatile enough to play every spot on the offensive line. "I think this kid can come in and compete and give us great depth at the spot," Pederson said.

SOMEDAY, we will be privy to the pictures Howie Roseman has of Miami Dolphins executive vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum that helped him facilitate one of the great NFL trade robberies of the salary-cap era.

Francis J. McHale didn't just spend his Peco career up an electric pole or supervising those who did. From the 1980s into the 2000s, he was one of the organizers of the Sauerkraut Supper, which drew current and retired Peco linemen every October to the Columbia Social Club in Port Richmond. It was a pork-and-sauerkraut dinner, and it benefited St. Christopher's Hospital for Children, said Mike Andrews, a Peco lineman who worked with Mr. McHale for 20 years. Over the years, Andrews said, "he was involved with a lot of charity work.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Miles Austin was sidelined in the Eagles' 35-28 win over the New England Patriots on Sunday as a healthy scratch. The Eagles played first-year receiver Jonathan Krause over Austin. Although coach Chip Kelly said the move was not a statement, it was a clear decision to sit the veteran receiver whose production has not matched his playing time. "Krause is just a guy that has shown up in practice every since day, and we felt like we wanted to give him an opportunity to play," Kelly said of the change.

Temple's Eric Lofton has moved all over the offensive line, but it hasn't affected the fifth-year senior's performance. Lofton has started 11 games for the 10-2 Owls: one at left guard, four at right guard and six at right tackle, where he has appeared in each of the last four games. With Lofton playing a major role, the offensive line has been among Temple's most improved units from last year's 6-6 team. The 6-foot-5, 302-pound graduate of South Jersey's Rancocas Valley High said he doesn't mind shuffling along the line.
