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.

When the Eagles have the ball After a three-interception outing last Monday, quarterback Sam Bradford must play better if the Eagles expect to escape Charlotte with a victory. The Panthers allow 241 passing yards per game, but they have eight interceptions in five games. Josh Norman is tied for the league lead in interceptions and has been one of the top cornerbacks in the NFL. The Eagles will miss wide receiver Nelson Agholor again because of an ankle injury. Riley Cooper did not practice last week because of a knee injury and is questionable for the game.

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.

Patriots (-3) over BRONCOS Talked to some of the sports book operators around town, and checked some offshore places, and can tell you that the favorites are getting a huge amount of action. Between 75 and 80 percent of the money flowing in on the AFC title tilt is New England money. Not sure whether it's all Bill Simmons cash, but the bookies are gonna be desperate for a Denver cover. Speaking of Simmons, he posted a stat on Twitter that appeared in the Boston Herald concerning the referee for the game, Ed Hochuli . The Broncos are 7-0 in Hochuli games since 2000, and 6-0 since 2008.

CHARLOTTE - Even when it's not about Cam, it's about Cam. That's the way charisma works. Dogged all year by allegations that their 15-1 record was a combination of a bad division, luck and gimmickry, showoff quarterback Cam Newton and his Panthers beat the red-hot Seahawks a second time this season and denied them a third consecutive trip to the Super Bowl with a 31-24, divisional playoff win. Showoff? Maybe that's not fair. Newton, in his fifth season, is the MVP favorite, the best player on a one-loss team.

Camden played three games over the holidays without star senior guard Brad Hawkins, who was in California to play in the Semper Fi All-American football game. That was the bad news for the Panthers' basketball team. That also was the good news. "Brad not being here opened our eyes to some other players," Camden coach John Valore said Sunday. "We got the chance to really get a better understanding of their ability. " Make no mistake: Valore and the Panthers missed Hawkins, who is one of the state's top athletes and most ferocious competitors.

It was business as usual for the Camden boys' basketball team Saturday, as the Panthers scored at least 85 points for the fourth straight game. Corey Greer and Jamal Holloway each scored 18 points to lead the Panthers to a 88-63 win over visiting Morris Catholic in nonleague play. Four of Greer's baskets came from three-point range. Camden is ranked No. 3 in South Jersey by The Inquirer.

Imhotep Charter made history by becoming the first public school from Philadelphia to win a state football crown. The school plans to recognize the players and coaches in a ceremony on Tuesday. That's when the accomplishment might sink in for Albie Crosby. "It still feels kind of surreal," the Panthers head coach said Saturday. "Maybe it will be different in a few days. " Racking up 514 yards on offense and overcoming three first-quarter turnovers, Imhotep, with its jaw-dropping speed, size, and physical toughness, overpowered Erie Cathedral Prep, 40-3, Friday night in the PIAA Class 3A final at chilly Hersheypark Stadium.

Two years ago, Imhotep Charter became the first Philadelphia Public League school to compete for a PIAA state football championship. The Panthers, however, were throttled, 41-0, in the Class AA title game by District 7's South Fayette. Last season, Imhotep fell again, 42-34, in the Class AAA District 12 final against eventual state champion Archbishop Wood. "It's a process," said coach Albie Crosby, who is in his fourth season. "That's the best thing I can say about it. . . . It's just one of those things where that wasn't our time.

IMHOTEP SENIOR Jordan McCray could have copped an attitude and become a disruptive and disgruntled player, or just flat-out transferred. Currently, McCray possesses the size, speed and athleticism to play linebacker in college somewhere next season. The problem is that the 6-2, 210-pounder plays defensive end really well for the Panthers (14-0), who will play District 10 Cathedral Prep (14-1) in the Class AAA state championship at 7 p.m. Friday at Hersheypark Stadium.

Imhotep Charter junior Jaquan Arrington doesn't remember much about his performance in the Public League championship game last season against Constitution. Either it was too long ago or he didn't play much or make any memorable plays. Thursday night at Ben Franklin, however, Arrington led the Panthers, at times in spectacular fashion, to a 66-51 division A win against the host Generals. Arrington finished with a game-high 19 points on 7-of-10 shooting. He also added five rebounds and a blocked shot.

Imhotep senior running back Mike Waters might have quit football all together early in his career if not for a few simple words from his coach. Waters was a sophomore then, splitting carries with other talented runners and feeling like he had no room to shine. "In the beginning I was ready to just give up," said Waters, a 5-foot-10, 192-pounder. "I didn't want to play football anymore. I wasn't getting the ball and wasn't able to show my talents. My coach [Albie Crosby] just kept saying he had my back, so I just had to ride it out with him. " Now, Waters, a Public League record-holder, will lead the Panthers (13-0, 6-0)
