While Downingtown East quarterback Pat Devlin is focusing on his team's PIAA playoff debut tonight against Pennsbury, other sports spotlights around the state are starting to focus on him. If and when Devlin throws a completion tonight against the Falcons that boosts his passing total for the game past 106 yards, it may go immediately unnoticed. But Pennsylvania high school football accountants would note that Devlin had just surpassed Evan Kraky, who wrapped up his career for Lakeland High in 2001 with a state-record 7,447 career passing yards.

Over the last several months, Pat Devlin, the high-profile senior quarterback at Downingtown East, visited more than a half-dozen colleges, was invited to three prestigious camps - including the Elite 11 in California - and disappointed at least 20 Division I schools when he made an oral commitment to Miami. So it was understandable that when Devlin recently went for a week to Ocean City, N.J., to spend some time with his maternal grandparents, Hub and Ginny Endres, football was not on his agenda.

Pat Devlin Downingtown East When all is said and done, Pat Devlin could end up rightly being called the best quarterback this area has ever produced. And luckily for us, the Downingtown East slinger will continue his ascension just 200 miles away in Happy Valley. The state's all-time leader in career passing yardage (8,162) - which is some achievement, considering Pennsylvania's past alums - the 6-foot-4, 205-pound Devlin gave an oral commitment to the University of Miami in July.

Penn State still has not announced who will start at quarterback for Saturday's season opener against visiting Coastal Carolina. The official depth chart, released yesterday, lists the first-string quarterback as either Daryll Clark or Pat Devlin, which has been the case since spring practice. Team sources said Clark, a senior, likely would start and that Devlin, a redshirt sophomore out of Downingtown East, probably would get nearly equal playing time, at least in the first game.

There were lots of questions and a few answers amid 79-degree weather at Penn State's Blue-White game yesterday at Beaver Stadium. The starting-quarterback battle raged between Downingtown East product Pat Devlin and Daryll Clark. The team also needs to find a replacement for injured linebacker Sean Lee. There was talk of the dropped rape and sexual-assault charges against ex-running back Austin Scott. And there were questions about coach Joe Paterno's lack of a contract - and its effect on recruiting.

YOU COULD SAY Andrew Guckin has come out of nowhere to emerge as the top rusher for Archbishop Wood High's ever-impressive football team. You could also say he jumped up from a hospital bed and, well, that wouldn't be the worst-ever example of truth-stretching. The 5-11, 200-pound Guckin, a senior halfback, last Friday night sliced and diced the Vikings' school record for one-game rushing yards by churning for 345 in a 56-35, looked-like-a-track-meet victory over host Bonner-Prendergast.

PORTSMOUTH, Va. - Kevin Newsome and his carefully plotted course to big-time college football crashed before a preseason practice at Penn State in August 2010 - the season he fully expected to spend as the starting quarterback. Newsome and the other quarterbacks were summoned to the office of the head coach, where Joe Paterno told the group that true freshman Rob Bolden would be the starter. Newsome, a sophomore, handled the moment graciously, shaking Bolden's hand and telling the newcomer he would do anything to help him. Newsome grabbed his gear, put it on more slowly than usual and headed to the practice field for warm-ups.

Among local players who had hopes of their names' being called but were disappointed, Delaware quarterback Pat Devlin (Downingtown East), Boston College linebacker Mark Herzlich (Conestoga)

Last season, he led the Football Championship Subdivision in completion percentage (67.97 percent) and was fifth in passer rating (151.64). He has solid mechanics, a quick release and good mobility. However, Devlin, who comes from a spread offense, has average arm strength.

INDIANAPOLIS - The comparison is obvious, though flawed. Joe Flacco and Pat Devlin both went to high school in the Philadelphia area and got a chance to play at a major Pennsylvania program but had to transfer to Delaware to find success. Both brought the Blue Hens to the Football Championship Subdivision title game but lost. Both are expected to make the leap from the lower-tier college division to the NFL. But they play different games and face far different prospects in the pros, at least initially.
