The football players at Conestoga High School had a nickname for the rituals they performed each week, according to prosecutors. No-Gay Thursday. 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.

When Joel Embiid made his way into the locker room before the 76ers faced the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday, he casually walked to his locker and sat on the undersize stool. Just seconds later, Jerami Grant made his way from his locker spot to Embiid and, without saying a word, wrapped his arms around Embiid's massive shoulders and gave him a hug. It was like a kid seeing his father after a long time away. Embiid reached up and patted one of Grant's arms and the two shared a hearty laugh.

In the wake of firing Chip Kelly, Jeffrey Lurie had made a pledge to the Eagles players that he claimed would accomplish two things: It would help him find the right man to be their new head coach, and it would reaffirm just how progressive and cutting-edge the Eagles' organization really was. No more would the players have to deal with Kelly's cold-shoulder style of coaching, with his inability or unwillingness to attune himself to the sensitivities and...

WHEN HE WAS taken fourth overall by the Eagles in 2013, Lane Johnson had a feeling the franchise saw the left tackle position in his future. He'd played it in college, and, with a talented but aging Jason Peters at left tackle, it seemed he could be a natural successor. With the news Friday that the Eagles signed Johnson, 26, to a new six-year deal that locks him up through 2021, his move to the left side of the offensive line could be nearing. "I think that's what they drafted me for," Johnson said Friday.

ORLANDO - This was as good an opportunity as any for the 76ers to get a victory over an Eastern Conference opponent. The Orlando Magic went into Wednesday's contest minus shooting guard Victor Oladipo. They also had lost three straight games and seven of their last eight.

MY FIRST TIME was on a late winter Saturday evening. The details remain hazy. Two of my high school friends from Baltimore were at Villanova and had been telling me I needed to get up to Philadelphia to see a Big 5 doubleheader at the Palestra. I got on a bus from College Park, Md., one Friday afternoon and somehow ended up on a train out to the Main Line. The next night, the first game, a k a the prelim, was already on when we got to the Palestra. Villanova was in the second game.

B.G. Kelley is a Philadelphia writer Butterflies as big as bats seized my stomach as I sat in the Palestra locker room waiting to lead the Temple Owls onto the court to meet the Villanova Wildcats in a City Series Big Five game. I could hear the nearly 10,000 fans screaming, anxiously anticipating the arrival of both teams to the polished floor of the Palestra. It was Jan. 16, 1965, and it was the most important game of the season for my teammates and our coach, Harry Litwack, a seminal figure in Philly basketball who would later be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame.

Head coaches, like presidents, should have speech writers. If they did, it sure would be cool to be Doug Pederson's guy. Mr. Head Coach, here's what I came up with for your pending introductory news conference with the Eagles at the NovaCare Complex. I got some help from the trainers and doctors, so you can read it over and tell me what you think.   Introduction: OK, injuries. (Clear throat for effect) Chip Kelly had a broken offense, a tired defense and quite a few personality quirks.

The players had to laugh. It was the first thing they noticed when they walked into the visitors' locker room at Paul VI. "We don't know who did it or why it was there," Alexis Santarelli said. "But somebody drew a picture of Mickey Mouse on the board in the locker room. " "It was like he followed us home," Elizabeth Radley added. The Bishop Eustace girls' basketball team didn't literally expect to bring Mickey Mouse back with them from a recent holiday tournament in Disney World.
