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.

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. "I thought about it like, 'I really need to play linebacker because if that's what (college)

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, our final Player of the Week this season, 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 5-10, 192-pounder. "I didn't want to play football anymore. I wasn't getting the ball and wasn't able to show my talents.
