This weekend, while Philadelphia Catholic League football all get a bye before the postseason begins, their Public League counterparts will hit the gridiron on Friday and Saturday. Here’s a closer look at the quarterfinals matchups for our area teams:
When the Northeast soccer team trudged off the field following last year’s disappointing loss to Central in the Public League championship game, Abraham Kamara was a few miles away, helping Father Judge win the Catholic League title.
Now that Rushawn Grange and Travon Williams have finally found a home, the duo has the Northeast High School football program back where it expected to be all along: the playoffs.
New season. Different players. Same result.
On Friday afternoon, one of the best quarterbacks in Frankford football history took in his alma mater’s division game against Central on the sideline as a spectator. Tim DiGiorgio had to like what he saw from one of the youngest signal callers the hallowed program has ever seen.
For Ron Cohen and George Hubbard, Friday night’s football result made for the happiest of birthdays.

Brianna O’Donnell is not naive. As a high school sports coach for the better part of the last decade, she knew this part was coming.
