FLETCHER COX' value to the Eagles' defense can't be measured in statistics. The third-year defensive end is seventh on the team in tackles, but that means nothing. He doesn't have any of his team's 19 quarterback sacks, but that really doesn't mean much either. "I can't say enough about Fletcher Cox and what he's done for our pass rush," defensive coordinator Bill Davis said. "We talk about it all the time. When the sack numbers weren't up and we said there were guys making [the quarterback]

When college football coaches change a player's position, they often don't know how the player will react. However, a pair of position changes at Temple have worked out well so far for the 2-1 Owls, who are looking to improve to 3-1 for just the third time in the last 27 seasons. Last week, Temple coach Matt Rhule moved redshirt sophomore Sam Benjamin from wide receiver to the secondary, where Benjamin has yet to crack the four-deep rotation at cornerback. However, Benjamin also was added to the punt-return team and immediately paid dividends, blocking a punt Saturday that Artrel Foster returned for a touchdown in a 59-0 win over Delaware State.

The story line is pretty obvious this year for Great Valley's football team. The Patriots will enter the season with just 23 players on their roster. With such a small team, coach Gary Phillips can count on a few things. Players won't gripe about lack of playing time. Players will be in shape. And there will be lots of extra space on the team bus. One thing you won't see, though, is Phillips bemoaning his situation. He could, after all, considering that the Patriots are coming off a 7-4 season that culminated with a tense 20-14 loss to Methacton in the District 1 Class AAA championship game.

The only numbers that Derryk Sellers and Moises Ambriz and everybody associated with Lindenwold football will worry about Thursday night will be the ones on the scoreboard. That's progress. Not long ago, Lindenwold had just 18 players during preseason practice. Now, the Lions have 34 players on the roster and figure to have 27 in uniform for the season opener against Colonial Conference Patriot Division rival Audubon. "Things are looking up for the Lions," Sellers said.

Haverford School could have prepared for Lawrenceville School's single-wing offense by ordering some old Notre Dame highlight films, circa Knute Rockne. Instead, the Fords took the normal tack, which wasn't good enough. After a few days of having backups run the single wing against the first-team defense, Haverford School went up against the real thing Saturday and came out on the short end of a 20-6 score at Lawrenceville. "It's really difficult to prepare for the first time you see it," Haverford School coach Paul Bernstorf said.

LA SALLE'S Hank Davis has appeared in two games this season, playing a total of five minutes. He missed his only shot, and picked up one foul. He still says he's living his dream. "Definitely," insisted the 5-11 junior walk-on, without hesitating. "This is what I wanted to do. When you're an athlete, something would be missing if I wasn't part of a team. It's something I love. I always like to be busy working anyway. So when I got this opportunity I couldn't turn it down. "When I came here, they'd just had that Sweet 16 run. To keep my career going was just awesome.

Every week a different NFL defensive coordinator wakes up on Monday morning not just worried about how well his defense will play in the next game, but how fast it will have to play. This week, it is Dom Capers of the Green Bay Packers, and if he is like most coordinators getting ready to play the Eagles, he starts by discarding a large portion of his playbook. "In general terms, when teams prepare for our offense, they come in very simple on defense because they're nervous about the pace," safety Malcolm Jenkins said.

STATE COLLEGE - Nyeem Wartman went from playmaker in Penn State's opener last season to the scout team by November. The linebacker hurt his knee in his second career game and did not return to the playing field. Though Wartman's health improved toward the end of the season, he remained on the sideline and was granted a medical redshirt. There were obvious cons for Wartman in 2012, but the Philadelphia native's patience paid off. He will be a starter at "Linebacker U" this season, and very well could maintain that spot for the next 4 years.

By virtue of a 33-7 victory over the Perkiomen School on Friday night, the Morrisville Bulldogs completed the first half of its Independence League schedule undefeated. The outcome was really no surprise as it extended the Indians' losing streak to 39 games, and the game did not provide a stern test for the Bulldogs (5-0, 3-0). But Morrisville took nothing for granted going in. "We were prepared for what they were going to do," said running back Troy Wilson. "Our scout team gave us a good week of practice.

Council Rock had little trouble Friday in its 58-35 victory over host Pennridge. "Our kids played well, but I think it just comes down to we had more talent," Indians coach Rick Kamin said. "Pennridge played hard and hustled. We're a very aggressive and physical team. You have to be for survival in our league, and Pennridge wasn't able to handle it. " Senior point guard Tom Dunphy directed the victory for Council Rock (12-2). Dunphy, who finished with a game-high 13 points, played aggressive defense, fed teammates for baskets and hit jump shots when needed.

NEAR THE TOP of the list of spectacular things we haven't seen yet has to be the meeting room for the Eagles' quarterbacks. "We have a really good room," Sam Bradford said Tuesday. "We've got an awesome quarterback room," Carson Wentz said, minutes later from behind the same NovaCare auditorium lectern. "I've been a part of some pretty good quarterback rooms . . . and I feel like this one is going to be a really good one," Chase Daniel told reporters. An anonymous insider confirmed both accounts.

It's spring break this week on Hawk Hill. Emphasis on the break. The talk after a St. Joseph's practice was all about staying calm, chilling out away from the court, in preparation for the Atlantic Ten tournament, which starts for the Hawks on Friday afternoon in Brooklyn, after a double-bye puts them in the quarterfinals. The Hawks are trying to put behind them the worst stretch of their regular season, at the very end. After often playing like the best team in the A-10, the Hawks finished with two straight losses for the only time this season.

BOCA RATON, Fla. - Temple's bowl preparations went in a new direction Friday when the Owls had their first practice in Florida in preparation for the Boca Raton Bowl against Toledo. "It was an extremely hard-fought, tough practice and we are getting adjusted to the heat," Temple coach Matt Rhule said. "I thought today was good for us. " The Owls (10-3) could set a school record for wins in a season Tuesday with a victory over Toledo (9-2). Rhule's team may not have bowl experience, but it is a veteran bunch.

ARLINGTON, Texas - It seemed pretty obvious that Ryan Mathews was on the ground when the ball came out, after Mathews picked up a first down on fourth-and-1, but ref Ed Hochuli's crew ruled a fumble anyway, with a Dallas recovery, on the first possession of overtime. This turned out to be a good thing for the Eagles. The review – which, of course, ended with a ruling of first-and-10 for the Birds at the Dallas 41 - offered a chunk of time that Chip Kelly used to call a crossing pattern for Jordan Matthews that had worked well earlier, in a similar situation, setting up the Eagles' first touchdown.

Coach Derek Lewis knew that Trey Burton could excel at tight end for Florida, but in 2010 he couldn't persuade the freshman to trade six spots for one. Burton shuffled from wide receiver to running back to fullback to slot receiver to stand-up tight end, and even started at quarterback against Florida State. Against Kentucky, Burton set a school record with six touchdowns, five on the ground and one in the air. As the only first-year starter that season, he led Florida with 12 touchdowns, more than a fourth of the team's season total.

GREEN BAY - At times, Aaron Rodgers seems almost bored. Rodgers is the best player on a very good team - logical, since he is the best player in a very deep league. He is the most accurate and efficient passer in history, an unflappable leader and a splendid athlete. He is football's Michael Jordan; the best, most polished quarterback in history. There is no shame losing to the best; not when he and his cast is fit and healthy, playing well and at home. 53-20? Walk it off. This was no more a referendum on the Eagles' capabilities than, say, the fact that Hakeem Olajuwon won only when Jordan did not play, or that Charles Barkley never won a title at all. The game left both teams at 7-3. There is a decent chance that they will meet again in January.
