KHALIL ROANE was at it again for Ss. Neumann-Goretti last week. After 70 carries and 379 yards in his last two games, the 5-8, 185-pound running back put the Saints on his back again in a 12-6 victory against Prep Charter in the Class AA city title game. Jack Taylor, a senior linebacker for the Saints, actually ended the game with an interception with 47 seconds remaining. Roane, already the city's leader in attempts (now 283), supplied the offense. He logged 31 more totes for 171 yards and both N-G touchdowns.

AT SOME point, either before or after Sunday's game, Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still will walk up to Saints coach Sean Payton, shake his hand and say "thank you. " In September, Payton heard about Still's 4-year-old daughter, Leah, who has stage 4 neuroblastoma, a pediatric cancer. When Payton heard the Bengals were offering the proceeds of the sale of Still's No. 75 jersey to battle the disease, he bought 100 of them, at $100 a piece. And Payton wasn't the only one. The team raised over $1 million for Children's Hospital in Cincinnati.

SAINT JOE'S PROSPECTUS It all comes down to: How well the new players and inexperienced returning players perform. The Hawks lost veteran players who knew how to play and, by the end, knew how to win. None of that happened overnight. It was a process, sometimes painful, exhilarating at the finish. The game has evolved to a point where, if you don't have three-point shooting, you are playing against basketball math. These Hawks definitely will be playing against that math. "We've had to change the way we play," coach Phil Martelli said.

KHALIL ROANE should never have to carry another book through the halls of Ss. Neumann-Goretti High. His hands should be unencumbered, free to flip through his phone, look up stats and maybe even watch some game film. That's because the 5-8, 185-pound junior running back leads the city in carries. In the last two games alone, Roane has rushed 70 times (39 and 31, respectively). Oh, and he also plays outside linebacker. So, double-dipping must be tough, right? "It's not really hard," Roane said.

FOR MALCOLM JENKINS, it's about more than football. Yes, he has a foundation that does good works; yes, he has a private PR firm that coordinates everything from his outreach to his image. There is football, sure; and there is the Malcolm Jenkins Foundation. But there also are his bowties; the zombies; and Jimmy Gatz. The Eagles didn't count on all of that this offseason when they stole Jenkins from the Saints, who splurged on flashier free-agent safety Jarius Byrd, a Pro Bowl ballhawk.

JACK RAMSAY WAS the godfather of Saint Joseph's basketball and one of the greatest teachers the sport has ever known. His coaching tree is legendary. Besides his own Hall of Fame coaching career that accounted for 1,098 wins, Ramsay's tutelage was obvious as many of his players - Jim Lynam, Matt Guokas, Jack McKinney, Paul Westhead, Jim O'Brien, Harry Booth, Jim Boyle, to name a few - went on to have successful college and/or pro coaching careers. The good doctor passed away this past April.

The Eagles were determined to upgrade at safety in the offseason, evaluating one of the best free-agent classes at the position ever. But the team did not target two Pro Bowlers who played for Chip Kelly-coached teams at Oregon. Instead, the Eagles pursued Malcolm Jenkins, a former first-rounder who was not re-signed by the Saints. When free agency opened, they signed Jenkins to a three-year, $16.5 million contract with $8.5 million guaranteed. Kelly said the team thought Jenkins "was the most versatile in that class.

NEW ORLEANS Saints wide receiver Marques Colston is close to joining the ownership group of the Philadelphia Soul. Colston owns the Harrisburg Stampede, a franchise in the Professional Indoor Football League, which is a lower level than the Arena Football League in which the Soul plays. Colston's ownership share in the Soul couldn't be determined. The 31-year-old holds every significant receiving record for the Saints, and was a key player when New Orleans won the Super Bowl following the 2009 season.

ON A DAY in which Darren Sproles became the first player in NFL history to win Special Teams Player of the Week and Offensive Player of the Week inside of the first month of a season, and Chip Kelly again raved about the versatility of Malcolm Jenkins, it seemed a good opportunity for Eagles general manager Howie Roseman to gloat about his offseason pickpocket of the team that ousted his team last January. "Nah," Roseman said. "You get your ass kicked when you do that. " In truth, it's a little early for it anyway.

IF DARREN SPROLES continues to do what he's done the last 2 weeks, if the little guy helps take the Eagles deep into the playoffs next January, general manager Howie Roseman and head coach Chip Kelly need to send a nice, big Edible Arrangement to their counterparts in New Orleans, Mickey Loomis and Sean Payton. Back in March, the Saints were trying to create some salary-cap space and decided to put a For Sale sign on Sproles, who had caught 71 passes last season but was about to turn 31 and had a $3.5 million 2014 cap number.
