With a very good chance at an Eastern Conference playoff berth on the line, Catasauqua pulled out all the stops.

The Rough Riders used a new wildcat look and a gadget play for three of their four touchdowns in a 28-14 win over Northwestern Friday night in New Tripoli.

"These kids wanted this one bad tonight," said Catty head coach Tom Falzone. "They knew what was at stake – a chance to play on."

The Roughies will likely be a No. 3 or 4 seed in the Eastern Conference Division II playoffs, depending on other outcomes.

Brian Kelly is facing a lot of tough questions this week after losing to a Tulsa and after the death of an ND student at a football practice.

Despite the obvious questions of why he threw a pass with less than 40 seconds in the game at the 19 yardline of Tulsa when a field goal would have won the game, Kelly's progam does not appear to be improving and there are plenty of questions about the defense, or lack of it.

Kelly and his staff has this week and next to think about it as the Irish are off today. They host a top 10 ranked Utah team next Saturday.

Heading into its bye week, Penn State's pursuit of Joe Paterno's 400th career win seemed a daunting task for the second half of this season.

The Nittany Lions had dropped two straight, including a Homecoming loss to Illinois, and were also riddled with injuries, especially on defense. At 3-3, getting the three more victories needed for the magic number appeared to be a challenge.

For people living within the immediate area, sightings and encounters with black bears have become so commonplace they have become somewhat matter-of-fact events in recent years. As bears keep expanding their range in Pennsylvania, they are as likely to be seen from backyard decks and on mountain hiking trails as deer and wild turkey.

In what has been the toughest season in Stan Dakosty's 34 years at the Marian helm, the Colts definitely saved their best for last.

When dark storm clouds and a pregame shower passed over Men of Marian Stadium Friday night, little did anyone know the silver lining of the Colts' campaign was to follow.

Marian put together its best performance of the season, dominating on both sides of the ball in a stunning 47-7 Anthracite League rout of visiting Tamaqua in the finale for both teams.

After a recent visit to see my niece and nephew, my brother walked me to my car. As he did, a neighbor approached whom I did not know.

He looked to be no more than 30 and possessed a muscular yet athletic build that told me he engaged in far more than typical health club workouts. Maybe that's why when my brother introduced me he added, "And he was writing health and fitness articles while you were in diapers."

LeBron wants to

play in 2012 Olympics

LeBron James has made another decision: He wants to be an Olympian again.

The Heat forward said he would "love to be a part" of the 2012 U.S. men's basketball team at the London Olympics and help defend the gold medal the Americans won in the Beijing Games. And if U.S. coach Mike Krzyzewski wants him back, James says he's just a phone call away.
