Starting Saturday, middle and high school students in Pennsylvania can be criminally charged for hazing their peers, as new state regulations go into effect following several high-profile incidents at local schools. The state's anti-hazing law had applied only to college students, but in May, Gov. Wolf signed a bill extending its penalties to seventh through 12th graders. The changes kick in just in time for the start of the 2016-17 school year, and about five months after Chester County officials revealed a culture of hazing at Conestoga High School in the Tredyffrin/Easttown School District.

Some players avoided the locker room that day, when players considered certain sexual behavior permissible. The hazing at the elite Chester County public school, routinely ranked near the top academically in national ratings, escalated into assault one day last fall, authorities said Friday. Three seniors, including a team captain, grabbed a freshman they didn't like, who was trying to leave the locker room during a hazing ritual.

In the reorganized layout of the Eagles locker room at the NovaCare Complex, the offensive linemen are clustered in a back corner of the room like bears in a cave, just the way they want it. For three years under Chip Kelly, the locker assignments were random, with a linebacker here, a running back there, a punter here, and even a quarterback dropped among the brutes like a pearl in a field of rocks. It was interesting in a new-age kind of way, but Kelly's revolution has expired, and Doug Pederson is more of a business-as-usual guy, from the standard fundamentals of the game right down to the positional groupings in the locker room.

BRODHEADSVILLE, Pa. - The sound of muttering was mixed with the click-clack of cleats during Bishop McDevitt's solemn halftime march to the locker room. Twenty-four minutes of game time later, the Lancers returned to the locker room, looking forlorn after losing, 51-7, to District 2 Old Forge in a PIAA State Class A quarterfinal at Pleasant Valley High School. "It's hard to explain," McDevitt coach Pat Manzi said. "We just didn't have it today. They were that much better than us today.

The last time Riley Cooper touched the football this season it glanced off his left hand and fell to the turf at MetLife Stadium and the Eagles were forced to punt. It probably was the last time he was targeted as an Eagle. If so, it was a fitting way to go out. The Eagles gambled on third down late in the game and Sam Bradford went to Cooper, who had run a post route. The ball was thrown a touch high, but the timing was off. Cooper didn't look back at his quarterback until the last moment and the ball ricocheted off his outstretched hand.
