Coatesville already was at the top of District 1's Class AAAA playoff ratings. The coaches had told the players over and over again that they had the stuff to live up to the rating and stand up to their own history. So yesterday, after a season of occasional slips and slides but never enough to get knocked off course, it was time for the Red Raiders to show they believed in themselves. "Last year, we were the same team, pretty much," senior Will Keylor said. "We just had to learn how to win. " Almost before they had a chance to think otherwise, the Red Raiders, ranked third in Southeastern Pennsylvania by The Inquirer, scored three first-quarter touchdowns en route to a 28-7 win over West Chester Henderson.

Major Culclasure of Coatesville led his troops on an overwhelming frontal assault on Chester on Saturday that resulted in a 21-7 Red Raiders victory in the opening game of the season for both teams. During the preseason, Coatesville coach Rich Como insisted that his offense would be based on ball control, with fullback Culclasure running behind an experienced and tough offensive line. Como was right. The visiting Red Raiders bulled their way to 296 yards and 19 first downs, all on the ground, led by Culclasure's 134 yards on 20 carries and two touchdowns.

While Coatesville barely missed at states, it still won the illustrious Steel City Invitational. And the Chest-Mont League, District 1 Class AAAA/AAA, and Abington Invitational. The Red Raiders are The Inquirer's Southeastern Pennsylvania boys' cross-country team of the year. Coatesville, directed by head coach Keith Andrew and assistant coach Dave Lapp, improved almost every week during the season. At states last month in Hershey, the Red Raiders scored 100 points, just five points shy of champion Cedar Cliff.

An experienced Central Dauphin football team beat a young Coatesville squad, 37-0, last year. Rams coach George Chaump admits concern about a different outcome tonight when the two teams meet at 7 at Coatesville. "We've lost a lot," Chaump said, comparing this year's squad to his 1999 team that made it to the finals of the District 3 Class AAAA playoffs before losing. "We've got five sophomores starting and some of them go both ways. "Coatesville was pretty much a junior team last season.

After losing to Coatesville twice during the Ches-Mont season, West Chester East coach Dan Rudloff knew what to expect on Saturday at Downingtown in the quarterfinal of the PIAA District 1 Class AAAA tournament. "There's a reason they are the No. 1 seed," Rudloff said. "They have more weapons than we do, more athletes, and are a better team. " The Red Raiders lived up to their billing as they dispatched the ninth- seeded Vikings, 73-38. Coatesville (22-3) will play Sun Valley in the semifinals Tuesday at a site and time to be determined.

Coatesville basketball coach Gerry Quedenfeld spent about 10 minutes after Saturday night's game punching lockers and yelling at the top of his voice. That's about 9 minutes and 19 seconds longer than it took Coatesville to turn what looked like a victory into a stunning 53-52 loss to undefeated Woodrow Wilson of West Lawn at the Bulldogs' packed gym. The story of this tightly played game, which Wilson led only at the very beginning and the very end, was told in a 41-second span with 1:39 left in the game.

If there has been one thorn in the side of the Paulsboro wrestling team in recent years, Absegami is it. In 1997, the Braves halted Paulsboro's 55-match winning streak with a 42-18 decision. Last season, they were the only team between the Red Raiders and their 28th undefeated campaign, scoring a thrilling 34-30 victory. The two South Jersey powerhouses will meet again at 2:30 p.m. tomorrow at Absegami. Paulsboro enters this match as the favorite, which was not the case in the last two seasons.

Facing an unbeaten powerhouse with a club still searching for its first victory, Radnor coach Bob Martin figured his team would have had to pull off a small miracle to beat Ridley in their Central League clash Saturday. But from Ridley's first offensive play of the game - a 65-yard touchdown run by halfback Mike Busza - Martin knew he would be looking at a long day on the sidelines. That run was only the start of a romp, as the visiting Green Raiders coasted to a 48-3 victory over the Red Raiders.

Mike Dominick sat in his office in the Coatesville locker room savoring his team's 20-13 victory over Downingtown on Saturday. Outside, his muddy players were still celebrating, dancing and hugging as they enjoyed their second consecutive Ches-Mont championship and first trip to the state playoffs. As players walked by the big glass partition separating the office from the rest of the locker room, they knocked and waved to their coach, who returned their greeting with a big smile.

At first, it seemed as if someone forgot to tell the Radnor girls' lacrosse team that the regular season had finally started. But the host Red Raiders rallied from an early five-goal deficit Tuesday and stunned Garnet Valley, 10-9, in the Central League opener. Garnet Valley, the reigning PIAA state champion, is ranked 21st in the country by Nike/U.S. Lacrosse. Lexi Kenneally (game-high four goals) scored to give Radnor the lead for good, 8-7, with 14 minutes, 46 seconds remaining.

TOMS RIVER, N.J. - When Isaiah Briscoe stepped out of the locker room after the game, eager fans swarmed him in front of the door. Mothers asked him to kiss their babies. He signed Roselle Catholic T-shirts, shook hands, and posed for pictures. A few informed fans asked him to autograph their Kentucky hoodies - a nod to the powerhouse college program Briscoe will play for next season. On the other side of the wall and down the hallway a bit, Paulsboro's Saleem Little strapped on his backpack and zipped up his red warm-up jacket.

Sean Collins has never let the size of his school alter his outlook. Collins has been the boys' basketball coach at two Group 1 schools, the smallest enrollment classification in New Jersey. In both instances, his little guys routinely knocked off the giants. Collins went 111-44 at Schalick. He has gone 131-21 in five seasons guiding the Red Raiders. Collins has brought a Group 4 mentality to a Group 1 school. That mind-set was evident this year. The Red Raiders finished the season 31-3 and won the state Group 1 championship.

Saleem Little and his teammates were ready for some competitive basketball Friday. Mother Nature had different ideas. The inclement weather caused the postponement of the NJSIAA Tournament of Champions from Friday until Saturday. Paulsboro (31-2), the Group 1 champion and No. 5 seed, will meet top seeded Roselle Catholic (26-4) in Saturday's 3 p.m. TOC semifinal at Toms River North's Pine Belt Arena. The second semifinal between Pope John and Newark Tech, will take place at 5. "It was very disappointing when I got the message, it was bad," said Little, a senior forward averaging 15.7 points.

Brandon Hamilton sees himself as an "underdog. " His whole team will fit that description Friday night. Hamilton and his Paulsboro teammates know they are widely regarded as little more than a speed bump in top-ranked Roselle Catholic's anticipated drive to another Tournament of Champions title. But Hamilton, the Red Raiders' senior guard, has heard that kind of talk in the past. "We were supposed to be underdogs in this game, right?" Hamilton said after Paulsboro's imposing 90-65 victory over Group 3 champion Bergenfield in the T of C quarterfinals Wednesday night.

TOMS RIVER, N.J. - That wasn't Gateway, or Lindenwold, or Haddon Township on the other side of the court. No disrespect to the Gators, Lions, or Hawks, but this wasn't a Colonial Conference Patriot Division game. This was the quarterfinals of the Tournament of Champions. That was Bergenfield, the Group 3 champion, on the opponents' bench. "I didn't think it would be that easy," Paulsboro senior guard Brandon Hamilton said after the Red Raiders' 90-65 victory Wednesday night at the Pine Belt Arena at Toms River North High School.

The state title is in the bag. The trophy is back in Paulsboro. The championship jackets are on order. Paulsboro coach Sean Collins wants his boys' basketball team to have a "great experience" in the Tournament of Champions. "Enjoy the moment," Collins told his players of an adventure that included the T of C luncheon at Pines Manor in Edison on Monday afternoon. Still, Collins knows his players. He knows what is likely to happen when the T of C quarterfinal between Paulsboro and Bergenfield tips off Wednesday at Pine Belt Arena in Toms River.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - It was 32 minutes that validated four years. Paulsboro's seniors didn't just put a cherry on the top of their careers in Sunday's state championship game. They emptied the whole jar, squirted the entire can of whipped cream and poured out the complete container of sprinkles. "It's like a dream," senior Saleem Little said after Paulsboro's 78-48 victory over University in the Group 1 state title game Sunday at Rutgers University. Little generated 13 points and 12 rebounds and seniors Theo Holloway and Brandon Hamilton each scored 20 for Paulsboro (30-2)

As far as Paulsboro High School boys' basketball coach Sean Collins is concerned, his seniors' legacy is secure. "Look at all they've done," Collins said. In the last four seasons, Paulsboro has won 112 games, four Colonial Conference Patriot Division titles, three South Jersey Group 1 titles, and several feature games in showcase events against high-profile teams such as Paul VI, Atlantic City, and Camden. The one thing the Red Raiders have not done is win a state title. They get the chance to fill in that one blank Sunday at 5 p.m. in the Group 1 state championship game against University of Newark.

TOMS RIVER, N.J. - It wasn't the best game of De'Shaun Burgess' athletic career. It might have been the most memorable. Burgess, a senior guard, scored eight points to help Paulsboro to a 51-50 victory over Shore Regional in a Group 1 state semifinal thriller Thursday night at Toms River North. The victory was special for all the Red Raiders, given the team's losses in this same game at this same site in 2012 and 2013. Senior Brandon Hamilton scored 11 points and registered Paulsboro's final points with a pair of free throws as the Red Raiders advanced to face University in the Group 1 state title game Sunday at Rutgers.
