Kevin Doyle has played understudy throughout the season while Malvern Prep junior quarterback Nick Maras led the Friars to victories. Doyle, a sophomore transfer from Bishop Shanahan, made his first appearance on center stage Friday night in the Friars' 33-14 victory at Episcopal Academy in the Inter-Ac season opener. Maras, who transferred from Episcopal, is not eligible for Inter-Ac play this season because of the league's long-standing rule that a player must sit out a league season if he transfers within the league.

As a three-time Catholic League wrestling champion, Anthony Piscopo will likely concentrate on that sport at an Ivy League school. But the La Salle senior also shines on the gridiron. With Piscopo helping to clog the running lanes, the Explorers held Malvern Prep's high-octane spread offense to two touchdowns and triumphed, 21-14, in a nonleague showdown Friday night at Upper Dublin. With the Friars at midfield on their final possession, sophomore Garrett Zobel and Piscopo, who can play either tackle or end, notched back-to-back sacks to extinguish the comeback bid. "We knew Malvern had a couple of dangerous running backs," Piscopo said.

Rashon Lusane has strong ties to Norristown High School. His father, Rod, and brother, Rasheed, played football and wrestled for the Eagles. Rashon played the same sports as a freshman and sophomore at Norristown before transferring to Malvern Prep. "The opportunity presented itself," he said. "Nothing against Norristown, but I would have been a fool not to take advantage of it. " It was an opportunity that Lusane created. After falling short of the required entrance-exam grade for Malvern as an eighth-grader at Eisenhower Middle School, he excelled in the classroom at Norristown, with a 3.8 grade-point average, and passed on his second try. "Academically, going from Norristown to Malvern, was like night and day," Lusane said.

If he stays engaged, however, he might just earn more minutes and raise some eyebrows - maybe even his own. Such is the case for our latest player of the week, Malvern Prep sophomore O'Shaan Allison. The 5-foot-8, 180-pound backup running back certainly remained focused and seized his opportunities Friday in the Friars' 34-0 win against Holy Spirit (N.J.)
