Eric Rowe grew up watching Steve Smith destroy some of the best NFL cornerbacks with his route running and trash talking. Then he followed the wide receiver to the University of Utah - some 14 years later - and met Smith when he visited his alma mater and spoke with the players a few years ago. But that Smith was much different than the one who lined up opposite Rowe on Wednesday. The one that the Eagles rookie faced during joint practices with the Ravens was the mouthy, shifty receiver he watched on television as a youngster.

STEVE SMITH felt awful, and great. His spotty play in place of suspended receiver DeSean Jackson helped the Eagles lose to the underdog Cardinals. But Smith played the entire game . . . the first time in more than a year. Smith injured a chest muscle Nov. 7 last year, then was lost for the season with a knee injury when he came back in December. "I feel real good," Smith said. Physically, he felt good. Emotionally . . . well, Smith knows he will be remembered less for his team-high five catches and 45 yards than for the 1 yard he failed to get. Tied at 14 in the fourth quarter, the Eagles, on their own 20, needed 20 yards on third down to jump-start a drive.

If you're struggling, mired in mediocrity and finding it extremely difficult to get rid of the doldrums, just call the 76ers. They'll make you feel better in no time. The Hawks, despite playing three lackluster quarters last night, can testify to that. Steve Smith, Atlanta's leading scorer, showed why he was selected as an all-star guard earlier in the week by forcing overtime on a jumper with 12.5 seconds left in regulation. Then Smith finished off the Sixers with four of his game-high 33 points in an 11-0 overtime run to lift Atlanta to a 109-99 comeback win at Alexander Memorial Coliseum at Georgia Tech.

SEATTLE - Former Giants wide receiver Steve Smith is coming to New York for Super Bowl XLVIII, and like most fans, he's a little leery of what the weather will be like. He said that he may have to call his old quarterback, Eli Manning, to see if he can squeeze into his suite at MetLife Stadium in order to stay warm. But then Smith quickly realized that wherever the Mannings are stationed will be Broncos territory. "Dang," he said. "That's going to be a conflict, actually.

FOR STEVE SMITH, it was all about the kids. Here was a man who devoted his life to coaching young people at schools and recreation centers in the city - not just coaching them but teaching them how to be responsible adults. It's called mentoring, and that was what Steve Smith was all about. A burly guy with a big smile that told you all you needed to know about this man, he loved what he was doing, and the world around him could tell. Steven J. Smith, longtime Philadelphia Recreation Department leader who coached and mentored young people at various recreation centers in the city and at Catholic and public schools, and a devoted family man, died Dec. 1 of cancer.

It's an ignominious mark, but the Atlanta Hawks will concentrate on the positives, such as Steve Smith's eagle eye. Despite combining with the visiting New York Knicks to post the lowest third-quarter points total in NBA history, the Hawks tied Indiana for the Central Division lead by winning their seventh in succession, a 76-73 victory, last night. The teams combined for only 19 points in the third quarter. Atlanta outscored New York, 11-8. Smith, his right eye nearly swollen shut after he was accidentally poked in the eye by Larry Johnson in the ugly third period, sealed the victory by hitting seven free throws in the final 10 seconds.

Volunteers for the 5th Annual Philly Spring Cleanup swept up the city's streets and helped clean parks Saturday, encouraging residents to "Keep Up The Sweep Up. " The Philadelphia Streets Department helped start the cleaning initiative with a morning celebration at Kingsessing Recreation Center and park in Southwest Philadelphia. Steve Smith, the facilities supervisor for the park, said that volunteers collected over 60 bags of trash in his area alone. Smith, 51, said that the work began around 8 a.m. and lasted until just after noon.

While P.J. Kelly decided to attend St. Joseph's Prep, many of his classmates from Gwynedd-Mercy Academy opted for nearby La Salle. Since then, the hard-nosed point guard has enjoyed considerable success on the hardwood against ex-teammates Steve Smith and Jon Naji. That continued Friday afternoon. With Kelly providing six assists and playing solid defense against star Amar Stukes, the host Hawks pounded the Explorers, 74-57, in a Catholic League playoff quarterfinal. The 5-foot-11, 170-pound senior helped limit the La Salle University-bound Stukes, who had poured in 33 points against the Prep during the regular season, to two points in the first 16 minutes.

As soon as John Giannini convenes the first practice tonight, he'll notice immediate improvement in La Salle's long-struggling basketball program. He will actually have enough players to go five-on-five. "The first turned ankle, though, and we'll have a walk-on ready to fill in," the second-year coach said yesterday. Despite a trying travel day of flight delays, Giannini was buoyed by the interest some quality recruits had shown in La Salle. But the boost the Explorers would get from those players wouldn't come until next season.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 7. Watch 'em roll Cam Newton, QB, Panthers vs. Rams. I called him the most frustrating QB in Fantasyland earlier this week, and he'll probably prove me right again Sunday. But after his monster outing against the Vikings, he should - mind you, should - take advantage of another tasty matchup with the Rams' subpar pass defense. Brandon Jacobs, RB, Giants vs. Vikings. You're not chasing last week's stats when Jacobs' next matchup is against the defense that surrenders the most fantasy points to opposing rushers.

Widener assistant baseball coach Matt O'Neill got another look at Ricky Collings on Thursday afternoon in a PIAA Class 4A quarterfinal at Immaculata University. Suffice it to say that O'Neill's already-positive vibes about the Marple Newtown two-way standout and Pride recruit continued. Collings, displaying his usual poise and command, twirled a complete-game four-hitter with three strikeouts as the streaking Tigers advanced with a 3-1 victory over Council Rock North. The 5-foot-10, 175-pound senior righthander, who doubles as a shortstop, mostly mixed a fastball clocked in the mid-80-mph range and a slider.

BY ALL ACCOUNTS, Eric Rowe is a quiet sort. He keeps his head down, works hard, stays out of trouble. It's a good temperament for an NFL rookie cornerback whose humility can be tested on any snap. "He's a soft-spoken guy until you see him play," said Sharrieff Shah, his position coach at the University of Utah. "He's not a rah-rah guy, unless he knocks a guy's head off. " "He's never been the superstar of his team," said his mother, Denise. "He doesn't do touchdown dances. He's just humble.

JOINT PRACTICES are "organized chaos," Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins said after the first of the three days of welcoming the Baltimore Ravens to NovaCare, in advance of Saturday's preseason game. "Both teams are teetering on being under control, but out of control at the same time. It's real thin ice, but I think cooler heads prevail. We're all professionals. We're out here trying to compete. I think we all have that understanding and mutual respect for each other, and we're out here just trying to get work done.

Steve Smith sank a school-record seven three-pointers to lead La Salle to a 69-40 win at Cardinal O'Hara in a Catholic League boys' basketball game Monday. Smith, a 6-foot-8 forward committed to Fairfield, scored 10 of his 25 points in the first quarter. Amar Stukes added 15 for the Explorers. Greg Galeone made a key three-pointer to give Archbishop Ryan a lead late in regulation, and the Raiders beat host Father Judge, 65-61, in overtime. Galeone, who scored 15 points, and Brendan Horan, who had 13, each scored four points in overtime.
