BALTIMORE - His ribs were sore, and his heart was broken, but Drexel sixth-year senior guard Chris Fouch could still appreciate a stellar performance that capped a magnificent career. Fouch scored a game-high 30 points in Drexel's 90-81 loss to Northeastern in a Colonial Athletic Association quarterfinal at the Baltimore Arena. With Drexel down by 17 points early in the second half, Fouch went on a torrid stretch. Actually, it lasted the entire second half, when he scored 26 of his 30 points.

For more than 150 years, Pennsylvania State University's departing senior class has given a gift to the university: a solar panel, a green roof, sculpture, signs, and scholarships. This year, seniors voted for a less visible project, yet one they hope will have a lasting impact. They will donate what could be as much as $250,000 for an endowment to support mental-health services at the university. Senior Ramon Guzman Jr., 20, a Central High graduate from Philadelphia who is executive director of the senior class gift campaign, wept when he learned the results of the vote.

These glasses 18-year-old Sentira Wilson is wearing not only help one remember what year it is, but they glow in the dark, too. Plus, they evoke many comments from passers-by, so they make a great conversation opener when you don't want to make small talk about the weather. Not bad for three bucks, which is what Sentira paid to benefit the senior class at Benjamin Franklin High School. But if you do want to talk weather, the call is for a glorious weekend.

Every year for 30 years, Ada Rosen has put together a formal assembly at Paulsboro High School. It is called the Brotherhood Assembly. Every year at that assembly, one of the seniors in the school of 900 students is honored for his, or her, capacity to live up to that simple but difficult concept. The assembly represents an honored tradition for this hard-working, defensive, blue-collar Gloucester County borough, which has had more than its share - if any town must have a share - of racial incidents and grim publicity.

Great Valley school board members received a surprise at Monday's meeting when they learned from Chuck Linerman, director of business affairs, that the federal government wanted to reclaim the former Nike missile site in Willistown Township, which it gave to the school district as surplus land in 1975. Under the agreement with the government, as explained by Linderman, the school district was to use the 12.5 acres within five years of receipt for an environmental study site or to house another school facility.

With the war in the Persian Gulf, threats of terrorism may be up, but, at least so far, the incidence of terrorism is not. As a result, fear of flying has not caused any local high school to cancel or alter its senior class trip. "There has been no incident at all in this country," said Bob Kolenda, Neshaminy's senior class adviser, who will accompany students on a trip to Orlando, Fla., from May 4 through 7. "Everything you see in the news or read in the papers, they're tightening up security, so I never even gave it a thought.

STATE COLLEGE - For Kyle Carter, Penn State's redshirt freshman tight end who has yet to play a down in his college career, they're role models. For Bill O'Brien, Penn State's first-year head coach, they set the leadership standard. They, the seniors of the Nittany Lions, are ready to lead their team into battle this season, perhaps now more than ever. The 2012 group of Lions has been a close one throughout. During this training camp, they've played paintball together, bowled together and joked about one another's antics to the media.

Bill O'Brien counted on Penn State's seniors in so many ways when he took over the football program in January. He depended on them again and again during a chaotic year that included NCAA penalties, player transfers, and a discouraging start to the season. So it's likely that O'Brien will be as emotional as his seniors when they are brought out before Saturday's game against Wisconsin to be introduced to the crowd at Beaver Stadium. "These are young guys that have been through a lot," O'Brien said during his teleconference on Tuesday.

TWENTY-FIVE YEARS later, Reggie Isaac offers no exact thoughts on one specific matter. All things considered, but especially because of his status as perhaps (definitely?) the best player in world history, is basketball better off that Wilt Chamberlain still holds Philly's male record for most points scored in a high school game? "I never thought about that," Isaac said recently. "Honestly, as I get older, I just think about being happy that I had the chance to break it. "Lots of high school players can't tell a story like this one. I'm glad I can. " Infrequently, albeit.

BOCA RATON, Fla. - Temple University president Neil Theobald described talks last Thursday with Mayor-elect Jim Kenney concerning a proposed 35,000-seat on-campus stadium as productive. Kenney told The Inquirer after the meeting that he relayed to Temple officials that they must address the concerns of the neighborhood before he can endorse a plan for the $100 million project. Theobald, who attended the Boca Raton Bowl on Tuesday, said it was a positive meeting. "I thought it went very well," Theobald said.

It might have been the most important completion of Temple's season and it wasn't surprising that receiver John Christopher made it. The 5-foot-11, 189-pound senior is the epitome of a team player. Christopher does not worry about playing time or statistics, and his efforts on and off the field have played a major role in Temple's revival. As for the catch, it occurred during the third game of the season. Temple had opened with upset wins over Penn State and Cincinnati but was staring at defeat, trailing by 23-22 at Massachusetts in the final minute.

Before his sophomore year at St. Augustine Prep, some of Dante Enos' football-playing buddies were lobbying for him to return to the sport. Enos quit football when he was 9. He was more of a "baseball-basketball guy," he said, with a fierce focus on his academics. Something special is happening with the Hermits' football program, his friends told him. You don't want to miss this, they said. "It was the best decision I ever made," Enos said after helping St. Augustine to an imposing, 46-6 victory over Cedar Creek in his final game for the Hermits on Thanksgiving morning.

IN A CIRCLE around Matt Rhule, a group of seniors surrounded the third-year coach at one of the right hash marks on the green turf at Chodoff Field. Following the final drill of Tuesday's practice, Rhule called a portion of the senior class over while the rest of the team huddled 10 yards away. After a 44-23 defeat to South Florida on Saturday, when the defense allowed 556 yards of total offense, Rhule wanted his seniors to rally his squad after its second defeat in three games.

After Washington Township graduated one of the most accomplished classes in South Jersey boys' soccer history, the conventional wisdom was that the Minutemen would take a couple of steps back in 2015. But that line of thinking failed to account for the "fire" inside Mike Roscioli, the grit inside Ryan Logar, and the determination inside most of the team's seniors to create their own legacy. "It lit a fire inside me," Roscioli said after scoring the first goal in top-seeded Washington Township's 2-0 victory over Eastern in the South Jersey Group 4 title game on Friday afternoon.

Shortly after leaving the December funeral for Nate Fox, a player he coached at the University of Maine who was tragically shot and killed, La Salle coach John Giannini had a revelation. "As I went to the viewing, the only thing I could think of was how lucky I was to coach a player like Nate," Giannini said of Fox, who played professionally for 12 years overseas after playing for Giannini. "And then, as I went to my car in the parking lot, the only thing I could think about was how lucky I am to coach guys like D.J., Jerrell, and Steve.

The makeup of the Washington Township girls' basketball team has drastically changed, but the competitive spirit has not. Few teams were hit harder by graduation than the Minutemaids, whose senior class from last year took part in three consecutive South Jersey Group 4 titles before falling in the second round last season. Still, veteran coach Jenn Natale doesn't want any excuses that are often made with youth. And even though 5-foot-10 Ciara Keitt is the lone senior on the team, Natale isn't interested in rebuilding.

OFFENSIVE LINEMAN Miles Dieffenbach and linebacker Mike Hull have been at Penn State for a half-decade. Head coach James Franklin and his staff have less than a year under their belts in Happy Valley. For some perspective, Franklin was still an offensive coordinator at Maryland when Hull and Dieffenbach enrolled at Penn State. So sure, Franklin hasn't known his senior class for years on end. Still, he understands what this group has faced. These players, like everyone on the 2012 Penn State team, were given an opportunity to transfer without penalty as a result of the NCAA sanctions after the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse case.
