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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Garnet Valley has made considerable noise since moving from the Southern Chester County League to the Central League in 2008. Mike Ricci's football squad has posted a 51-8 mark (.864 winning percentage) in league play, with two outright championships (2008 and 2011) and one shared (2009, with Ridley). This season is no different, as the Jaguars are 9-0, 8-0 in the Central League, and set to enter the 16-team PIAA District 1 Class AAAA playoff tournament as one of the top seeds.

LOS ANGELES - The day starts out light for the La Salle Explorers as coach John Giannini knows the value of rest, especially at this time of the season. The team isn't required to be anywhere until a 10 a.m. breakfast in the basement of their hotel. While a lot of food does get consumed, the session primarily consists of laughter. Tyrone Garland, owner of the now-famous Southwest Philly Floater, cracks everyone up with some witty - and secretive - one-liners. His main audience is Ramon Galloway, who stands up to laugh loudly after a Garland quip.

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.

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]

In February, when Tom Savage was an unheralded prospect trying to boost his stock after bouncing among three college programs, the former Cardinal O'Hara quarterback recalled advice from an old Arizona teammate. "Stay patient, block out the noise," Eagles quarterback Nick Foles told Savage. "Obviously, I don't have a lot of noise, but I block out whatever is there," Savage said at the scouting combine in February. The noise has gotten louder in recent weeks. Savage has become one of the fastest-rising players in the NFL draft and is no longer considered a late-round pick.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - "Knowshon sucks. " LeSean McCoy put that post on Twitter when a media member lauded Knowshon Moreno's performance against the Cowboys on Oct. 6. Moreno caught wind of the Eagles running back's critique a few hours after the Broncos outlasted Dallas, 51-48, and responded, via Twitter: "Glad [McCoy] was watching our game tonight. Great team win. Let's keep rolling. #5-0 #LetHatersHate #ShotsWereFiredButNoOneGotHit. " Moreno was already in the midst of a comeback season, but he finished the final 11 games - rushing for 224 yards against the Patriots - with authority.

P.J. Byers sat in front of about three dozen reporters on Tuesday afternoon, his hands folded neatly on the table in front of him. His blond buzz cut glistened from the spotlight over his head. He was deliberate with his words and spoke in a soft monotone. As a scout-team fullback at Penn State, Byers is not used to speaking in front of the media. His career statstical line reads: One carry, 1 yard. But this is a special week for Byers. When the Nittany Lions face Navy on Saturday at Beaver Stadium, Byers will have more in common with his opponents than he does with most of his teammates.
