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.

With just a few seconds remaining in Tuesday's PIAA Class 3A semifinal, a Neumann-Goretti fan said it best. "Hershey, here we come!" he shouted. After a physical contest against Imhotep, the Saints, who had five players score in double figures, knocked off the Panthers, 76-69, and earned a chance for their sixth state title since 2010. In Game 2 of the doubleheader at Philadelphia University, Math, Civics and Sciences held off defending Class A champion Constitution, 79-78, in overtime thanks to Kwahzere Ransom's game-winning three-pointer.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - The Camden locker room was dead quiet. It was similar to the scene after a tough loss but far from it, too. This wasn't just any tough loss. Camden sat knowing it had just dropped its fourth straight NJSIAA title game, the third in that streak at the Group 2 level. On Sunday, it was West Side High School that captured its first Group 2 championship, 85-83, at the Rutgers Athletic Center. The loss sent the Panthers back to that familiar yet dismal place. "It was a good season.

WHEN THE PIAA playoff brackets were released weeks ago, Imhotep certainly had Del-Val - and revenge - on the brain. Del-Val, which had won 19 consecutive games entering Friday night's Class 3A quarterfinal at Southern, unseated the defending champion Panthers in February en route to claiming the school's first Public League basketball title. Friday night, however, the Panthers sought to send a message. "We saw that they were on our side , so we're like,'Del-Val, Del-Val, Del-Val,' every day in practice," said Imhotep junior captain Daron Russell.

"OK ladies now let's get in formation . . . " And with that, Beyonce's controversial performance at Super Bowl 50 outside San Francisco was underway as she and her backup dancers marched onto the field at halftime in black leather jackets and ankle boots. The dancers had black berets pulled down over billowy afros, a signature look of the Black Panthers, as they, well, stood in formation. Award-winning filmmaker Stanley Nelson was on the other side of the country in New York City wrapping up after a sold-out screening of his powerful, new film, "The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Peyton Manning got his second Super Bowl ring. Now he can ride off into the sunset a winner. But it was the Broncos defense - and in particular Von Miller - that provided the venerable quarterback with a Hallmark ending to his career. The Broncos badgered, battered, and bloodied Cam Newton for nearly 60 minutes Sunday night as they put the 26-year-old Panthers quarterback's coronation on hold for at least one year. They survived the ineptness of their own offense and their Hall of Fame quarterback and cemented their place in NFL history as one of the league's greatest defenses with a 24-10 win in Super Bowl 50 for their third championship.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Jordan Norwood was out of football in 2013. He spent the 2014 season on injured reserve after he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. On Sunday, the Broncos wide receiver set a Super Bowl record with a 61-yard punt return in the second quarter. The Penn State product fielded a high-arching 28-yard punt, and the Panthers appeared to think he had called for a fair catch. But Norwood never raised his hand. He escaped from two initial would-be tacklers - Colin Jones and Teddy Williams - at the 25 and raced around the corner down to the Carolina 14. "It was a short punt," Norwood said.

JEFF McLANE Staff Writer One of the common refrains heard here in the Bay Area in the lead-up to Super Bowl 50 is that if it is a blowout the Panthers will win and if it is a nail-biter it will be the Broncos who come out on top. While it is true that the Panthers have more overall talent on both sides of the ball, it's not as if the Broncos are chumps. They had the No. 1 overall defense during the regular season and managed to make Tom Brady look ordinary in the AFC championship game.

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Sean McDermott was fired by Andy Reid on the Tuesday after the end of the Eagles' 2010 season. The year ended with a playoff loss in January. Almost no one knew for days besides the two men. Reid wanted to keep it a secret. He wanted McDermott to have another job before the firing became public. It didn't quite work out that way. The news leaked four days later, but McDermott, in the interim, had already interviewed with the Broncos and Panthers. The former Eagles coach wanted to protect the then-36-year-old defensive coordinator.
