After a nightmarish defeat to Southern earlier in the week, Frankford coach Vince Miller was dreaming of an easy time against Bodine (4-5) Thursday. Though the Ambassadors made it close, Frankford prevailed, 55-46. In the process, the Pioneers appeared to have found a new team leader in 6-foot, 2- inch junior wingman Jamie Ross. Ross paced Frankford with 19 points. He tallied 17 in an 84-59 loss to Southern Tuesday and scored 15 in a 53-42 win over Bok on Jan. 8. Thus, for the first time this season, someone other than Darryl Oliver has led the Pioneers in three straight outings.

With 6 minutes to go and the score tied, Friends' Central looked to Kristen Watson for leadership against the George School. As usual, Watson didn't disappoint. Watson scored with 3 minutes left to break the tie and added an insurance goal with 20 seconds remaining as the Phoenix (4-6 overall, 2-1 league) pulled out a 10-8 Friends Schools League win Friday. The goals were Watson's fifth and sixth of the game. Although the Friends' Central senior leads the team in scoring, her contributions go beyond the numbers in the scorebook.

After the Eagles' practice concluded Monday, most players scurried off the field. Quarterback Nick Foles stayed behind and held a conversation for nearly 10 minutes. He spoke with team owner Jeffrey Lurie. The conversation was innocent enough - Foles said they discussed the practice that had just concluded, which opened the team's third week of organized team activities. Lurie's presence is not a surprise at Eagles practices, even in the offseason. But the relationship between quarterback and owner is an important one, because Foles might soon merit a significant sum of Lurie's money.

This is new for B.J. Jones. This is old, too. Jones is the lone returning starter for Collingswood's defending Group 2 champions in boys' basketball. He's in a leadership role after spending his career as a complementary player. That's different for the 6-foot-3 senior. But Jones is used to setting an example. The oldest in his family, he's been a guiding light to his younger brothers, Shimon and Michael, for years. "I'm used to watching out for them," Jones said.

The difference is almost as striking as the 20 pounds of muscle he has added since last season. From laid-back follower to unabashed leader, Jahre Cheeseman has shifted his position on Eastern's football team nearly as quickly as he shifts gears when he gets into the open field with the ball in his hands. "This year, he's already taken over," said Eastern senior Alex Taliaferro, a cornerback. "He's taken over drills. He's taken over the huddle. He's real serious. He lets everyone know that it's no joke out there and we have to work hard.

Oxford senior Darren El didn't play organized basketball until he was in middle school, but he has been honing his game since he was about 6 years old in pickup games on the courts at Lincoln University near his southern Chester County home. Playing against older players not only polished his hardwood skills, it also taught him patience. He learned to play in the shadow of Oxford standouts Ryan Bogan, Julius Gray and Chris Boddy, all of whom helped put Oxford on the basketball map with a trip to the PIAA Class AAA state semifinals when El was a freshman.

Tyler Mondile always was the young guy, playing up. He always was the 10-year-old playing with the 12s, the 13-year-old playing with the 15s, the sophomore playing with the seniors. This season is different. Mondile is a senior righthander for the Gloucester Catholic baseball team. In addition to the traditional task of mowing down hitters with electric stuff that includes a fastball that recently touched 96 mph on a radar gun, the veteran has a new and equally important role: team leader.

Growing up, Norristown High's Darnell Goudy was too busy playing sports to seriously think about being an actor. That changed when he was a ninth grader. When the opportunity arose to portray King Claudius in the school's production of Hamlet, Goudy accepted the part and proudly wore a crown. That was Goudy's last stint as an actor. But the senior has not dismissed the possibility of returning to the stage in the future. "I'm usually pretty quiet," he said, "but I can be a showman at times.

Bret Phillips started out as the batboy for the Audubon baseball team. "When I was in seventh grade, I would always ride my bike up to the school and watch practices," said Phillips, now a senior outfielder for the Green Wave. "Eventually, they made me their batboy. It was an awesome experience because, really, I was just this little kid and they made me feel like I was part of the team. " Phillips practiced with the team, worked out with the team, and even got out of school early to travel on the team bus. "He was always around," coach Rich Horan said.

Temple linebacker Avery Williams still keeps in contact with last year's acknowledged team leader, Tyler Matakevich, now a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Just over the weekend, Williams said, he congratulated Matakevich on earning a spot on the Steelers' 53-man roster. Matakevich set a Temple record with 493 tackles, and now Williams is being compared to the former all-American, especially in the leadership department. When asked if he believes he has to be a Matakevich-type player, which means making virtually every tackle, Williams replied, "There is no such thing as [being a]

The story of Clearview girls' lacrosse is twofold. There is luck and there is talent. Luck rarely works in Clearview's favor. Once again, the injury bug paid the team a visit this season, and the Pioneers had to overcome the loss of some of their best players and leaders. For Clearview, this is just history repeating itself. But every year when playoff brackets start to narrow, Clearview is still playing lacrosse. That's where talent comes in. The fourth-seeded Pioneers are set to take on top-seeded Shawnee Thursday in the semifinal round of the South Jersey Group 4 playoffs.

I DON'T THINK any reporters who cover the Eagles know Jason Peters well. It's kind of odd, given that Peters has made the Pro Bowl as an Eagle six times, as much as Donovan McNabb did, but the best left tackle in franchise history makes himself available in the locker room sporadically, and he doesn't make small talk. Over the years, Peters has been revered as an Eagles cornerstone, first for Andy Reid, then for Chip Kelly. His judgments, when offered, have been taken as gospel. Peters isn't one to try to drown the truth in a torrent of rationalizations or excuses.

AS THE SIDELINE throw-in sailed through the air, Roman Catholic senior forward Brandon Gutekunst stood by the goal post, waiting to make his move. With Roman and La Salle tied and less than 10 minutes remaining Tuesday, Gutekunst jumped in the air, flicked his head and lifted the ball over the outstretched arms of the La Salle goalkeeper. The goal propelled Roman Catholic to its seventh win in seven games and fourth win in Philadelphia Catholic League play. "The guy we want with the ball is Brandon," volunteer coach Mark Casasanto said.

Nick Diaco won't have the chance to ease into his new role as starting quarterback for the West Deptford football team. Tommy Kadar won't have the chance to slowly settle into his new role as starting quarterback for the Haddonfield football team. The Eagles and Bulldogs - archrivals who have met 11 times in the last six seasons in Colonial Conference Liberty Division and South Jersey Group 2 tournament play - open the season against each other on Friday night at Gateway. "It's going to get the juices flowing," Diaco said of the renewal of one of South Jersey's fiercest rivalries.

Four years ago, the United States women's soccer team brought a then-21-year-old Alex Morgan to the Women's World Cup. Morgan was a spark off the bench, a speedy forward who went into a match during the latter stages and ran at tired defenses. She left the tournament as an emerging star. Morgan opened the scoring in the 2011 World Cup final with a 69th-minute tally that looked as though it would send the U.S. women to their first title since 1999. But Japan equalized with nine minutes remaining and, after trading goals in overtime, Japan won on penalty kicks, 3-1. The experience that she gained, despite the loss, shaped her approach to her second World Cup. "I think going into this World Cup, I know what to expect a little more and I know what I need to prepare for this World Cup and feel more at peace mentally," Morgan said.

CHASE KUMOR wants to be a nurse, and the 6-3 senior forward for Conwell-Egan High doesn't care what anybody thinks. In fact, he might come across the occasional knuckle-dragging troglodyte who thinks he should pursue something more manly, but he remains undeterred. "I'm fine with it," Kumor said yesterday after the Eagles overwhelmed visiting Bishop McDevitt, 69-41. "It's just what I want to do. If I want to do it, I'm just gonna go do it. I'm confident in it. " "Yeah, I get some jokes cracked at me, but I just kind of laugh it off," he continued.

In one sense, Jake Mulroy was the wrong man for the job. "That's not what I do," Mulroy said of scoring winning goals in the state semifinals or in any other match for the Haddon Township boys' soccer team. In another sense, Mulroy was right for the moment. He's a senior. He's a team leader. He's a key part of a deep, talented, and experienced squad that has set its sights on a state title since the summer. "We talked about that," Haddon Township coach Jim Bonder said after his team's 1-0 victory over Shore Regional in the Group 1 state semifinals Wednesday night at Eastern.
