We have to confess to occasionally giving in to the defeatist notion that Camden is a lost cause. Its poverty, its decay, its problems tend to dominate the headlines and, thus, perceptions. But every now and then, a bolt of energy and enthusiasm flies out of its bleakest reaches, shattering the stereotype, confounding the image. Sometimes a basketball team will do it. Sometimes a class working on a spacecraft experiment. This year it's Camden High School's Marching Panthers - band and ensemble.

Cheltenham coach Steve Daley said it was just a matter of time until senior guard Scott Feller broke loose, and Saturday night against Central Bucks West turned out to be just the right time. Decimated by injuries to guards Steve Fennal (broken finger) and Leon Johnson (torn ankle ligaments) and forward Mike Sutrynowicz (dislocated finger), the Panthers were forced to play West with a patched-up team that was proven on defense but questionable when it came to scoring. Fortunately for the Panthers, Feller scored a season-high 15 points, senior forward Ralph Richardson recorded 6 in the fourth quarter and the Panthers defeated West, 51-45, in a nonleague game at Cheltenham.

Strath Haven fired off 22 points at the start of its Wednesday night matchup against Penn Wood, but it wasn't enough to stave off the host Patriots. The Patriots rallied for a 62-59 victory over the Panthers in their third win of the year. Both clubs played Friday - Penn Wood won against Monsignor Bonner and Strath Haven triumphed against Upper Darby. The Pats are now 4-0 while the Panthers are 2-3. "We came out slow and they came out hot," said Chip Cifuni, Patriot coach.

THE PICK After watching some of yesterday's NFL action, I'm starting to think that maybe Cam Newton throws five touchdown passes to Jason Avant tonight, runs for another 200 yards and the Panthers roll to victory. But I guess ridiculous results elsewhere (Really, Steelers? You were my best bet this week. Thanks a bunch.) won't really have anything to do with what happens on the field tonight, and I just don't see the Panthers winning without a ton of Mark Sanchez turnovers. Carolina came into the weekend with the league's 26th-ranked run defense.

It started when a handful of men saw children in their West Philadelphia neighborhood crying because they wanted to play football but had no teams to join. It was 1990. Instead of walking away, the men huddled. They pooled their cash - about $700 - and sponsored two football teams for 42 children ages 7 and 8. Because the men could only afford 11 uniforms, the children would pass them among themselves between games. That wasn't ideal, but it was how the teams - called the Panthers - got their start.

Cheltenham hit the road Friday in search of its first victory in state championship tournament play. The Panthers had lost their last two District 1 playoff games last week - to Downingtown and Coatesville. But coach Bob Schaefer thought the Panthers could travel to Dunmore and bounce back with a win against Tunkhannock, the top seed from District 2, in the opening round of the PIAA Class AAAA tournament. When it was all said and done, it was Tunkhannock that did the bouncing, sending the Panthers home with a 53-41 loss.

Coach Chick Donnelly's top priority this season is to recapture the glory that once characterized the William Tennent boys' basketball program. After losing seven of their first nine games, the Panthers looked anything but glorious. Yet Donnelly refused to give up on the team, and his patience has paid off. Led by center Dave Wilding's 17 points, the Panthers won their fourth consecutive game Friday by defeating host Neshaminy, 51-40, in a Suburban One Patriot Division contest.

Collingswood won its fifth football game in a row last night, using its powerful defense to stop Gateway, 29-6. The Panthers, still hoping for a Group 2 playoff berth, raised their record to 6-1 overall and 6-1 in the Colonial Conference. Collingswood had been scored on in only one previous game, a 30-13 loss to Paulsboro on Oct. 1. Gateway fell to 4-3. The Gators' three losses have been to Collingswood, Paulsboro and Sterling - a trio with a combined record of 18-1. Wes Durham's 29-yard field goal got the scoring started, and quarterback Glen Ambrosius was 6 of 8 for 82 yards in the first half, when the Panthers put the game away.

The Florida Panthers showcased their new home and perhaps a new star. Mark Parrish's first two NHL goals broke a tie in the third period as the Panthers christened their new arena last night with a 4-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning. Parrish, who tied for the league lead with six preseason goals, scored his first career goal at 2:34 of the period to break a 1-1 tie, then gave the Panthers a cushion with another goal at 8:24. "It's nice to see a young player like that break in the way he did," said Florida coach Terry Murray, who was making his debut behind the Panthers' bench.

The odds appeared to be against Cheltenham in the PIAA Class AAAA girls' basketball playoffs. The Panthers were coming out of the District 1 playoffs as the fifth-place team and had to face District 11 champion Hazleton in the opening round. And getting by that round meant a matchup with District 1 runner-up Coatesville. But the Panthers took care of both those hurdles before knocking off Dallastown in the PIAA quarterfinals. That left District 1 champion Downingtown East as the only team in their way en route to Friday's state championship game.

During a brief break in fourth-quarter action Thursday night, Martin Luther King coach Sean Colson grabbed the attention of his guards. As Imhotep Charter coach Andre Noble conferred with referees about a free-throw discrepancy, Colson, his index finger extended, barked out instructions. "Do not leave him," he ordered. "Don't ever leave him!" On the business end of Colson's finger was a smiling Daron Russell. The 5-foot-10 sophomore guard for Imhotep had been a thorn in the Cougars' paws early on in the Public League semifinal at Southern.

FORMER FLYERS president Peter Luukko, who abruptly resigned 14 months ago, is moving south to join the NHL's Florida Panthers as an executive chairman, the Daily News learned yesterday. Seeking an executive with both a hockey and business acumen, the South Florida franchise was recommended to Luukko by NHL commissioner Gary Bettman. His official title is still being determined, but Luukko is expected to work alongside current Panthers president and CEO Rory A. Babich. An announcement is expected to come today, the Miami Herald reported.

Another Saturday afternoon. Another capacity-plus crowd. Another state power across the court. Another close loss for the Camden High School boys' basketball team. "It's extremely frustrating," junior forward Jamal Holloway said after Camden fell, 65-58, to Ewing in the ninth annual Jeff Coney Classic on Saturday at Rancocas Valley. Holloway scored 21 points with 21 rebounds and junior guard Brad Hawkins added 16 points for Camden (12-3), the No. 2 team in The Inquirer's South Jersey Top 20 rankings.

For a team that is 12-2 and has played the No. 1 team in the state to almost even terms, Camden's boys' basketball team understands that it is far from a finished product. Still, there likely are not many teams that would relish facing the defending South Jersey Group 2 champions in this year's tournament, and for good reason. Camden may not have overwhelming size, but there is plenty of experience and some of the area's better talent. So the scary part is that at 12-2, with an opening 51-50 overtime loss to Eastern and last week's 50-46 defeat to NJ.com's No. 1 New Jersey team St. Anthony, Camden is headed in the right direction.

TWO DAYS BEFORE neighborhood rivals Imhotep Charter and Martin Luther King High met on the basketball court, Tyheem Harmon was asked to sit out of the start of the proceedings. Typically a starter, Harmon, a 5-11 senior guard, was told by head coach Sean Colson he was needed as a spark off the bench. "It was a little . . . " said Harmon, voice trailing as both index fingers circled the sides of his head, "but I could get through it. Whatever is best for the team. " So, with a packed and boisterous home crowd in attendance, Harmon copped a squat on the bench and plotted instead of pouted.

CANANCHET JORDAN is a good son. Not only does the 5-11 senior guard for Imhotep Charter take care of his mother when she feels ill, he also explicitly follows her basketball instructions. Nicole Sample, who Jordan says battles leukemia, doesn't ask for much at home, but she does make the occasional hoops request. "I really love my mom," Jordan said after host Imhotep defeated Del-Val Charter, 64-51, yesterday. "I love to take care of her and do anything she asks me to do. We joke around a lot. She always texts me and tells me to put up a 'three' for her because that's her favorite number.

Seeing the parody band Steel Panther - at a pre-New Year's Eve sell-out at the Theater of Living Arts on Tuesday - was an impressive, stupid, and perfect way to end 2014. At first glance, the show was just a pastiche of Hollywood glam-metal, circa 1981. The kiddish profanity of its albums (e.g., 2003's Hole Patrol ), the rude, oversexed lyrics, the exaggerated, rock-on antics, teased hair, and costumes mirroring the tacky metal lifestyle of the 1980s - all something of a joke.

Trai Greer has high expectations for his younger brother, Corey. "He's going to be better than I am," Trai Greer said. Someday, Corey Greer might be a more accomplished player than his older brother and could even approach the level of the siblings' famous father, former Middle Township and Florida State star Lamar Greer. But for now, Middle Township's unquestioned leader is Trai Greer, a senior who sparked the Panthers to an impressive 50-38 victory over Gloucester Catholic in a clash of Top 20 teams on Saturday at the third annual Jimmy V Showcase at Schalick.

This is not a recording: The Flyers lost in a shootout. The Flyers almost always lose when the game goes into a glorified breakaway contest. This time, they dropped a 2-1 shootout decision to Florida, as the Panthers' Dave Bolland scored the winner at the Wells Fargo Center on Thursday night. It was the Flyers' 10th straight shootout loss, including 0-5 this season. "Some guys are good at shootouts, and some guys aren't," said coach Craig Berube, whose team had four shooters lose control of the puck in the shootout.
