West Chester University's Bill Pryor was named the school's special-teams player of the week after his punting proved to be a key in the Rams' 19-17 Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference win over host Clarion on Sept. 11. Pryor, a 5-foot, 11-inch, 170-pound senior who played football, swam and ran track for West Chester Henderson, had 11 punts in the game for an average of 36.6 yards per kick. Two of his punts, one of 55 yards and the other of 48, topped his previous collegiate best of 47, registered last season.

Considering they are both Democrats from Arkansas, play golf together, chat on the telephone and have been highly critical of the nation's pharmaceutical industry, President Bill Clinton and Sen. David Pryor have spent surprisingly little time talking with each other about the cost of drugs. In fact, they have talked about it for less time than a world-class runner needs to finish a mile. Even an egg takes longer to boil. "We have spent about a total of 2 1/2 minutes during our long relationship discussing pharmaceuticals," said Pryor, just before receiving an unexpected call from the President during a recent interview.

When Raymond T. Pryor, 21, fatally shot Jeffrey Grayes, 19, early last year on a North Philadelphia street, he believed Grayes was the man who had stabbed him during a fight with several people at a house party two months earlier. "He was mistaken," said Assistant District Attorney Charles Grant. After convicting him of first-degree murder, a jury yesterday sentenced Pryor to life in prison. Pryor, of 16th Street near Loudon, testified he was sure Grayes, of Sydenham Street near Loudon, had stabbed him. And despite eyewitness testimony, Pryor denied committing the murder Jan. 19, 1985, on Broad Street near Loudon.

The Corinthian Square Senior Citizens Apartments, a miracle that has been 15 years in the making, celebrates its grand opening Sunday. The 60-unit apartment complex for low-income elderly and disabled tenants was built by the Corinthian Baptist Church of Germantown to help revitalize West Oak Lane. The project, at Godfrey Avenue and Wister Street, represents 15 years of struggle by the 1,800-member congregation to overcome tremendous odds, including the discovery of two huge leaking underground oil tanks that had to be removed before construction could begin, said the Rev. C.L. Pryor.

Advance Magazine Publishers Inc., of New York, is placing its new shared services center in Wilmington, bringing with it about 210 jobs. The first group of jobs would be filled by April 2003, Richard V. Pryor, the city's economic development director, said yesterday. He said there was "a very strong likelihood" that the number of jobs - all in back-office functions, not in writing and editing - would more than double in the five years after that. Pryor said Advance would receive a state grant of $3,000 per job, which would come to $630,000 based on 210 jobs.

One Philadelphia woman mentally incapable of taking care of herself signed over her $1,000 Social Security check to an unscrupulous landlord who gave her $2 a day for food, cigarettes and a place to sleep on a basement floor. The woman is one of thousands of people who, because they are unable to manage their own affairs, are vulnerable to fraud and mismanagement of their federally paid benefits. Sen. John Heinz of Pennsylvania, ranking Republican on the Special Committee on Aging, yesterday cited the case of the woman - identified only as Mary M. - during a hearing that focused on what critics called the failure of the Social Security Administration to effectively monitor its program.

Are Senate Democrats anti-Catholic? Probably not. Are Republicans right to accuse Democrats of religious bias against Catholics? Probably, yes. If I sound ambivalent, it's because I am. On the one hand, I think the suggestion that the Senate Democrats who oppose Alabama Attorney General William Pryor are religious bigots is unfair. Several of the Democrats on the Judiciary Committee are themselves Catholic. Their objection to Pryor's nomination for a federal judgeship rests on their zealotry on one side of the abortion issue and what they perceive as Mr. Pryor's zealotry on the other side.

The Eagles worked out free-agent quarterbacks Terrelle Pryor and Thad Lewis last week, an NFL source said. Pryor, who spent his first three NFL seasons with the Raiders, was traded to the Seahawks in April and was released in August. The 6-foot-4, 233-pounder wants to continue to play quarterback, but he could have a better chance to land with a team as a wide receiver. The Eagles also worked out the 6-2, 220-pound Lewis, who has four seasons of NFL experience as a backup, in August.

OAKLAND, Calif. - Terrelle Pryor does not like to be called a running quarterback. On Sunday afternoon, however, the Eagles defense made sure that label stuck. The Eagles kept the Oakland QB on the run throughout their 49-20 victory over the Raiders at the O.co Coliseum. They forced the pocket to collapse up front, sending Pryor scrambling to avoid being sacked. They blanketed the Raiders receivers in the secondary, taking away his downfield options and forcing Pryor to do much of Oakland's legwork.

Opposing defenses have attempted various schemes to combat Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor, a dual threat who is among the top 20 rushers in the NFL through eight weeks. Eagles defensive coordinator Bill Davis said some teams are using a "spy technique," sometimes with defensive ends or defensive backs. Pryor said he has seen safeties creeping toward the line to shadow him when he roams. The Eagles could use a safety in this role or avoid the technique altogether when they visit Oakland on Sunday.

The Eagles play the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, and for the first time in his fledgling NFL career, Chip Kelly finally will coach a game that features a quarterback who would be ideal for orchestrating a read-option offense. Michael Vick's frame is too frail for the pounding that a mobile quarterback must withstand, and both Nick Foles and Matt Barkley run as if Steve Sabol had trained one of his slo-mo cameras on them and John Facenda were narrating. But the Raiders' Terrelle Pryor is 6-foot-4 and 233 pounds, and he has completed 63 percent of his passes and rushed for 391 yards this season, including a 93-yard touchdown - another member of this generation of quarterbacks who have the size and speed to destroy opposing defenses with their feet and their arms.

Here on the other side of the looking glass, the truth is always strange, apparently. Joe Paterno was fired by Penn State. Once that takes place, it is difficult to rule out anything else. So, it was just another windblown bit of news that swept by this week when interim football coach Tom Bradley casually let it slip that he had exchanged text messages recently with former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor, who was at the center of the recent payola scandal that cost Buckeyes coach Jim Tressel his job. It's difficult to find the proper context for that piece of information, particularly as Penn State takes its traveling circus on the road for the first time . . . to play in the great horseshoe of Ohio Stadium.

ON HIS SECOND play of his first NFL practice with the Oakland Raiders, Terrelle Pryor fumbled the snap and had to fall on the ball. He had one more fumbled snap and a few errant passes in his 16 plays during team sessions, looking more like someone who hadn't played football since January than a future franchise quarterback. That's all to be expected considering he just jumped right in on his first day with the Raiders, while most everyone else has had more than 4 weeks of training camp.

Quarterback Terrelle Pryor agreed to a 4-year contract with the Oakland Raiders yesterday, 3 days after being picked in the third round of the NFL supplemental draft. A person familiar with the negotiations confirmed the deal to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because it had not been announced by the team. Raiders senior executive John Herrera said Pryor had arrived in the Bay Area and was expected to sign a deal last night. Pryor can start practicing with Oakland today.
