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.

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)

Kelvin Harmon has not only made history on the football field at Palmyra High School. He also knows the Panthers' history. "It's a blessing to be part of the first senior class to get this far in 36 years," Harmon said. Harmon and quarterback Max Smyth have combined to form one of the most prolific pass-catch combinations in South Jersey history over the last two seasons. The seniors will lead Palmyra into the Central Jersey Group 1 title game Saturday against undefeated Shore, the defending sectional champion.

Imhotep Charter coach Albie Crosby prefers to celebrate the whole, as opposed to the individual, when it comes to his football team. However, the fourth-year head Panther singled out Mike Crawford after Imhotep's 20-14 win Saturday night against seven-time defending champ Archbishop Wood in the PIAA District 12 Class AAA title game. "I don't usually do this, I don't usually do this," Crosby said in the Panthers' victorious huddle, which had likely tripled in size as Panthers fans flooded Charles Martin Memorial field at Northeast.

Eagles (Pick 'em) over LIONS What? Really? Are you kidding me? A 45-17 beatdown against the Buccaneers. Not the Patriots . . . Not the Panthers . . . Not the Cardinals. The Tampa Bay Freakin' Bucs. Not the ugliest loss in the Chip Kelly era, but we'll get back to that in a minute. Jameis Winston: Five touchdown passes. Doug Martin: 235 rushing yards. What? You know it's really bad when you start your prayers at night, and Sam Bradford - coming off a concussion, with a sprained left shoulder, and some memory loss - is the lead.

HERSHEY - Amid all the white jerseys, there was Emma Loving, her navy blue No. 8 jersey surrounded by players from Upper St. Clair. The senior for the Central Bucks East girls' soccer team spent the majority of the PIAA Class AAA final Saturday in that fashion. The Panthers defenders never left the explosive forward alone. Some plays, three players flanked her on both sides and behind. On other sequences, a fourth player would come over just to keep tabs on the Penn recruit. Loving remained relentless in her pursuit of perfection and a state title as she powered the attack.

THOSE WHO DON'T follow college hoops might have figured High Point, Drexel's opponent Wednesday night, was a cupcake foe. Incorrect. The Panthers (2-1) have won or shared the last three Big South Conference titles. John Brown, their 6-8 senior, has a resume highlighted by more than 1,700 points, 600 rebounds and 100 each of assists, blocks and steals. Brown and his squad lived up to their billing by pulling away from Drexel in the closing minutes for a 75-66 victory at the Daskalakis Athletic Center.

Fittingly, since Central Bucks East had edged Quakertown by only a point eight days earlier, the rematch Saturday afternoon was likewise up for grabs until the end. This time, Quakertown, keyed by a defense that intercepted three passes in the final 7 minutes, escaped with a taut Round 2 victory. The 12th-seeded Panthers nipped the fifth-seeded and host Patriots, 7-6, in a District 1 Class AAAA first-round playoff at cold and windy First Lt. Colby Umbrell Field. "It's huge, especially after what happened the first time," Quakertown senior quarterback Tom Garlick said.

YOU MAY have heard that a couple of protesters rappelled inside Bank of America Stadium during "Monday Night Football's" Colts at Panthers game. They, reportedly, have an issue with fracking. But the real issue is security. How did four people, including Angela Vogel, 38, of Philadelphia, get more than 60 feet of rope, rappelling gear and a huge banner into a stadium that won't permit fans to bring so much as an umbrella or bottle of water to a game? On Tuesday, the Panthers' security staff said it is reviewing the incident in which two of the activists - Erica Madrid, 38, and John Nicholson, 29 - descended from an overhang in the upper level of the stadium, displacing fans from their seats for much of the third quarter.
