The young delivery driver for Buffalo Bill's Barbecue was making his final stop of the evening, just before 8 on a Tuesday this month, when two individuals suddenly approached him outside an unlit home in Winslow Township. One, wearing a bandanna over his face, pointed what looked like a weapon at the 17-year-old driver's chest, said the barbecue restaurant's owner, Brian Biggs, who learned of the incident afterward. The two then ran off with $150 in cash - a jackpot, considering that Biggs' drivers usually carry no more than $40. But that night had been busy.

Kingsway running back Anthony Seas described the football field as a "giant puddle. " Defensive tackle Wale Mustafa saw it more like a big sandbox. "It was so much fun playing in that," Mustafa said of the driving rain and fierce wind during Kingsway's 36-8 victory over visiting Winslow Township in a West Jersey Football League inter-division game Friday night. "We're just a bunch of goofy guys that like to have fun and we had a lot of fun out there tonight. " Mustafa led a dominant defense, and Seas ran for four touchdowns behind a powerful offensive line for Kingsway (1-2)

The number that has made the deepest impact with Winslow Township running back Keyshawn Branham isn't 495 (his rushing yards). It's not six (his touchdowns), either. It's three (the Eagles' victories). And zero, (the Eagles' losses), too. "I never knew the feeling of winning before," Branham said. "Now I don't want to lose again. " Branham, a 5-foot-11, 160-pound senior, has been front and center in Winslow Township's resurgence. The strong and speedy two-way back, who also is an outstanding wrestler, has rushed for more than 100 yards in each of the team's first three games.

While most mothers are watching their daughters from the grandstands, the Connollys transition from their role as mother and daughter to coach and player.

PHILLY DAN had his finger on the trigger of a gun, authorities said, when police in Winslow Township, Camden County, shot him in the head during a confrontation last year. It took just under a year for the investigation into the shooting death of Daniel "Philly Dan" St. Pierre, 42, to end and his mother, Linda Auwarter, wasn't exactly surprised by the results. A grand jury last week cleared the six officers involved in the shooting in a trailer on Auwarter's property in rural Winslow on Aug. 1, 2014.

It's easy to see that Darnell Maisonet is a terrific baseball player. It's easy to hear that, too. "He never shuts up," Winslow Township coach Keith Regn said of his senior centerfielder and leadoff hitter. Regn was offering a compliment, because Maisonet is loud in the best kind of baseball way - issuing a steady stream of near-nonsensical but relentlessly positive chatter and unwavering support for his teammates. "I just love the game," Maisonet said. "I love to play and I love to win and I love to see my teammates do well.

Kemp Carr believes Winslow Township can be one of the best football programs in South Jersey. "It's time to wake the sleeping giant," said Carr, who has been hired as Winslow Township's new coach. Carr turned Penns Grove into a South Jersey small-school power during 10 seasons as the Red Devils' head coach. His 2012 team went 12-0, won the South Jersey Group 1 title and set a state record for points with 621 (a per-game average of 51.7). Carr hopes to create the same kind of success at Winslow Township, which is a Group 3 program in football.
