Mike Muscella was thinking about all the little things holding Valley Forge back as it pursued its first victory of the 1998 football season. Let him count the ways - fumbles, interceptions, missed blocks, missed tackles and penalties. Then the Trojans head coach thought about Valley Forge's 36-20 nonleague victory over the Peddie School in Hightstown, N.J., on Saturday, a win that featured no turnovers, solid blocking and aggressive defense. Muscella said watching Valley Forge (1-2)

Crystal Goring admits that she always wanted to be like her older sister Gillian, so it's only natural that the two have traveled a similar path since leaving home in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad. Gillian Goring left in 1999, heading to Germantown Academy in Fort Washington for her sophomore and junior years before attending West Waterloo High in Iowa as a senior. Crystal Goring also decided to leave home for high school. Now 19, she has attended the Peddie School, a boarding school in Hightstown, N.J., for four years.

Classes ended more than two weeks ago at the Peddie School, but some of the students rushed back during the weekend. An exuberant Anne Seltzer, the school's director of development, said that when she went to work yesterday morning, students had hung two spray-painted bedsheets from the school's front gate. One read: "WOW! THANKS, WALT!" "Walt" being Walter H. Annenberg, billionaire philanthropist and former ambassador to Great Britain, who had just donated $100 million to his alma mater - the Peddie School (Class of '27)

The big plays that had killed Episcopal's football team were finally offset by a big playmaker named Nick Cannone. Cannone scored one touchdown, threw for another and intercepted a pass in the end zone that preserved the Churchmen's 28-13 win Friday at Peddie School. Episcopal's first win in six tries provides a nice jumping-off point for the start of Inter-Ac League action Friday at Germantown Academy. "We're 0-0 now with four straight league games," Episcopal coach Roger White said.

Germantown Academy halfback Matt Blewitt wasn't thinking about setting the school's career rushing record Saturday during halftime of his game at Peddie School. Instead, he was wondering how he would endure the wrath of his coach, Bill Caum, over GA's slim 9-0 lead, the result of three Greg Davis field goals of 20, 30 and 17 yards. Meanwhile, the Patriots hurt themselves with 60 yards in penalties. Fortunately for Blewitt, he scored four second-half touchdowns as GA (3-1) reacted to Caum's tongue-lashing by rolling to a 42-0 rout of the host Falcons (1-1)

Last August, on the next-to-last day of the tryouts for USA Baseball's under-18 national team in Houston, John Aiello's brief pitching stint abruptly went bad. "I threw a curveball and, basically, my elbow popped out," the Germantown Academy standout said. Tests revealed a tear to the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, an injury that required Tommy John surgery. It was performed a month later by Phillies physician Michael Ciccotti at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.

MERCERSBURG, Pa. - Just over four decades ago, Deborah Simon, a shy teenager whose parents were going through a difficult divorce, rode up the grand, tree-lined entrance of Mercersburg Academy to study amid the hills of south-central Pennsylvania. By the time Simon graduated in 1974, the daughter of an Indianapolis shopping-mall magnate had gained a second family of friends from all over the country, an acting portfolio, and, most importantly, confidence. On Thursday, Mercersburg will unveil Simon's stunning payback to her alma mater: a $100 million gift that equals the second-largest donation to a private secondary school in American history.

The small but muscular body of Temple football star Matt Brown displays the scars of a life that has been both privileged and painful. To honor his stepmother, Donna Brown, who was strangled in a domestic dispute, the tailback has a tattoo on his left forearm of a rose and her name in cursive letters. Her birthday - 11-28 - is in the image of droplets of blood near his biceps. Brown has the names of two other murdered family members, an incarcerated nephew, and his closest friends tattooed on his caramel-colored skin.
