Antwuan Butler had perhaps the worst seat in the house moments after his game-winning three-pointer splashed in and gave Del-Val Charter a 64-63 victory Thursday night against visiting Martin Luther King. The 6-foot sophomore guard hit the ground after releasing a heavily contested, step-back three on the right wing opposite Del-Val's bench. Flat on his back with his vision somewhat obscured, Butler still managed a peek as the ball swished through the net. His first thought: "Did I really make it?"

When the Eagles released James Casey, who served as a third tight end in addition to special-teams duties in 2014, Trey Burton knew there was a chance for him to seize that role - if he could, and if it still existed. Neither of those things was guaranteed. "This season was a little different mind-set for me," said Burton, who was a rookie last season and became a dependable, if unsung, special-teams performer. "It's all about not feeling complacent. I definitely want to make an impact on this team both offensively and special teams-wise.

GREEN BAY - As an undrafted rookie last year, Trey Burton showed he could be indispensable on special teams, both blocking a punt that was recovered for a touchdown and recovering a blocked punt for a touchdown. This year, Burton wants to prove he can be an important asset at tight end. He took a step in that direction Saturday night at Lambeau Field, notching a pair of touchdown passes among his four catches for 21 yards. "With one hand!" quarterback Mark Sanchez said, when asked about Burton's second scoring grab, on which he was far down the progressions, but found an opening in the end zone, over the middle.

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.

If ever there were a complicated male bill of soul-hop singers and MCs, Wednesday's show featuring Chris Brown, Trey Songz, and Tyga at Wells Fargo Center was it. Tyga is known for supposedly dating Kylie Jenner of Kardashian/Jenner family fame. If the Bruce Jenner news wasn't bad enough, Tyga got Twitter-dissed by Philly's Amber Rose (ex-Mrs. Wiz Khalifa!) for leaving his baby mama for young Kylie Jenner. It's hip-hop as soap opera. As for soapy drama, Chris Brown is the king: club shootings, Drake disses, his history with Rihanna, etc. Poor Songz - not known for anything but great singing, good abs, and racy lyrics.

The draft had just ended, and Trey Burton was fielding calls like most of the rookies who just missed out on being selected. He knew the Eagles were interested. The feeling was mutual. But the post-draft scramble for undrafted rookies is a free-for-all, and while Burton's multiposition four years at Florida might have lowered his draft stock, it would certainly make him an appealing addition to any training camp. The Eagles had more in mind than just a camp body, though, and Burton envisioned as much, because of his familiarity with Chip Kelly's offense.

Missing is contagious. That's what coach Ashley Jones often reminds the members of her Central girls' basketball team. It's a phrase that resonated with senior guard Kayla Henderson. The idea is to be mindful of the shots you take during a game - to be careful with the basketball on every possession. The Lancers didn't have to worry about missing many shots on Friday afternoon, as Central hit eight three-pointers on its way to a 55-46 victory over Public League rival Northeast.
