You can take Ryan Smith out of the city. Just don't do it for long. Smith, a 6-4, 225-pound tackle and linebacker at Roxborough High, made official visits to Pittsburgh and Wake Forest. He's headed to the school in the city that reminds him of good, ol' Philly. "There was a big contrast between the two schools," said Smith, a first-team Daily News All-City pick on the offensive line. "Wake Forest is a lovely university. Very prestigious. Everybody has money. But you know what?

Ryan Smith has emerged as one of the top high school swimmers in the nation, and no one is more surprised about that than he is. The Germantown Academy senior made it into the upper echelon of scholastic swimming at LaSalle University during the 101st Eastern Interscholastic Swimming and Diving Championships last month. Smith, who was not sure if GA's rigorous training program was for him when he started four years ago, was clocked in 49.13 seconds in the preliminaries of the 100-yard butterfly.

With Bishop Shanahan staging a furious comeback and Avon Grove hemorrhaging what once seemed an insurmountable lead, Avon Grove senior Beau Kush had control on his mind and the ball in his stick. Kush, an attacker headed to North Carolina next year, recaptured momentum for the Red Devils with a righthanded rip from about 10 yards out early in the fourth quarter, and sparked Avon Grove to a 9-5 Ches-Mont League triumph in lacrosse. "As a senior, you want to take control of the game," Kush said.

Collingswood took Sterling's best shot on Thursday night and then answered emphatically. After seeing a 17-point lead in the third quarter shrink to just one point early in the fourth, the host Panthers stepped on the gas to beat Sterling, 59-47 in Thursday's Colonial Conference boys' basketball game. Sterling's Ryan Smith hit a three-pointer to cut the Panthers deficit to 43-42 with 7:20 left and that's when Collingswood hit stride. The Panthers got immediate separation by going on a 7-0 run, beginning with an inside score from center Isaac Destin.

Brad Messick concedes that Sun Valley didn't have the greatest week of practice heading into Saturday's nonleague game with Haverford High. The Vanguards were down after being left out of the PIAA Class AAA playoffs and the visiting Fords, after losing all nine games this season, didn't exactly look like stiff competition. "No, we didn't have a good week at all," said the senior quarterback. "We just weren't motivated. But then Haverford comes down and puts a touchdown up on us right away.

Even without the fans, floats and festivities that surrounded Friday night's homecoming football game, today's solitary practice sessions should be interesting. Points were at epidemic proportion during host Sun Valley's 43-21 nonleague victory over Haverford School, and points of a different kind will be made in practice. "We could have played better," Sun Valley defensive end Shawn McLaughlin said. "It will be a hard practice [today]. There will be a lot of hitting and tackling.

Ridley wrestling coach Carl Schnellenbach set a PIAA record for career victories last night when his team beat visiting Haverford High, 48-13, in the Central League opener for both schools. The victory was Schnellenbach's 514th, eclipsing the old mark of 513 set by former Cedar Cliff coach Bob Craig. Legendary Haverford School coach Neil Buckley holds what is believed to be the national high school record of 646 victories. Haverford School is not part of the PIAA. Buckley, a 1934 Ridley Park High graduate, died in 1994.

Rarely will a defensive end dominate a football game as Sun Valley's Shawn McLaughlin did Friday night. The Vanguards senior posted five sacks and four quarterback hurries and added a touchdown reception on offense to spark Sun Valley to a 27-6 Del-Val League victory over host Unionville. McLaughlin, a 6-foot-1, 180-pounder who has 10 1/2 sacks this year, was a major reason why the Indians' Eric Zimpfer was held to 3-of-13 passing and dropped for 54 yards in losses. In all, Unionville's offense managed 122 yards.

If life is fair on the high school football fields, the Chichester Eagles will win a few games this season. Coming off a single victory in 2008, a winless 2009, and the sudden death of their new coach, the Eagles deserve some positives. Ryan Smith, their newest coach, is poised to give them that. Having replaced Bob Shull, who died after a weeks-long battle with leukemia, Smith is working hard to keep alive Shull's legacy and build a program that Shull would be proud of. Smith, in his second year with the Chichester varsity, knew Shull pretty well.

Ryan Smith always envisioned himself one day becoming a head football coach somewhere. The 31-year-old, 1997 Sun Valley graduate just didn't think it would come this fast-or under the toughest of circumstances. Smith is the new head coach of Chichester football, taking over for Bobby Shull, who never coached a game after dying suddenly and unexpectedly on June 4 at the age of 37 from leukemia. Shull's death struck the Chichester community and forced Smith, a gym teacher at Chichester, into action.

Scott Smith wanted to be just like his older brother . . . only to a certain extent. He wanted to star in football and secure a college scholarship, but he did not want to attend the same high school. "My mind was set in seventh grade that I was going to Roxborough or George Washington," Smith said. "When my brother picked Roxborough, it was only right - I'd go to Washington. "I wanted to have my own school. Make my own name. " Last year, Ryan Smith was a first-team Daily News All-City offensive lineman for Roxborough and wound up earning a scholarship to Pittsburgh, where he is redshirting and working out at defensive end. This year, the 6-4, 260-pound Scott Smith is starring as a two-way tackle for Washington and also proving he is worthy of heading to a Division I program.
