Louis Wm. Martini, 86, of Springfield, Delaware County, and Naples, Fla., a family physician who practiced in Philadelphia and then Upper Darby, died Thursday, Feb. 4, of pancreatic cancer at home. For more than 40 years, Dr. Martini cared for his patients in an attentive, personal manner. He retired in 1994 after experiencing health problems. "He did everything for his patients, from delivering their babies to being there to comfort them at the end of their lives," his family said.

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.

The office of Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane asked Superior Court on Friday to reconsider a ruling by three of its judges that tossed out key charges against three Pennsylvania State University leaders in the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal. The three judges last month overturned a lower-court ruling that upheld obstruction of justice and conspiracy charges against former president Graham B. Spanier; Gary Schultz, a former vice president; and Tim Curley, a former athletic director, along with perjury charges against Spanier and Schultz.

The recruiting process for Penn State's class of 2016 was filled with challenges that made it "a little bit more interesting than normal," in the words of head coach James Franklin. But when all the signed national letters of intent arrived Wednesday at Franklin's "war room" in the Lasch Football Building, the Nittany Lions could boast a solid 20-player class that actually finished ahead of Michigan State in the rankings of two recruiting websites. Sixteen players, including two junior-college transfers, submitted their letters on national signing day. The program already had four freshmen who enrolled in January.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - From Beaver Stadium to the Lasch Building war room, the football facilities on Penn State's campus buzzed Wednesday. Recruits faxed in their commitments in the morning as fans on campus celebrated. For the Nittany Lions, national signing day went off without many surprises, which meant coach James Franklin and his staff could breathe a collective sigh of relief. Shaka Toney, Penn State's only 2016 commit from the Philadelphia area, was still on the fence Tuesday night about where he should send his National Letter of Intent.

The roller coaster that is the Penn State recruiting process for the Class of 2016 swung upward on Tuesday, when the Nittany Lions received a pair of oral commitments from two players, one a 305-pound junior college transfer who will shore up the defensive tackle position. The Lions, who have picked up commitments from four players in the last three days to reverse some recent negative momentum, enter Wednesday's national signing day hoping to hold on to at least two of the players who committed to them last summer, and perhaps pick up one or two more from those announcing their college decisions.
