    All in the family

    For Northeast soccer, two Feldman’s are better than one

    Like anyone recently retired from a career they spent decades in, Sam Feldman found himself looking for something to do. When he couldn’t come up with anything substantial, the former boys soccer coach at Northeast High School reached for the familiar.


    It’s all Wright

    With senior transfer quarterback Cedric Wright leading the way, Washington snapped an 0-3 start and got back to business in the Public League.

    At 0-3, the sky wasn’t necessarily falling for the George Washington football team. After all, the losses were all at the hands of formidable non-league opponents, and the rest of the Eagles’ division hadn’t fared much better through the first three weeks.

    High School Football Round-Up: Week 3

    Outlook: The Railsplitters have sandwiched the season’s only win (a 6-2 victory in Week 2 over Overbrook) around two ugly losses, first a 47-21 defeat at Truman to open the year followed by last week’s 31-0 shutout at the hands of Upper Dublin. Lincoln hasn’t seen much develop in its rushing attack (LeRon Strothers leads the way with 56 yards on 20 carries), but QB Devon Thompkins has shown signs of improvement in taking over for the graduated Miguel Sanchez. Though he’s thrown only one TD pass so far, Thompkins has completed 28 of 60 passes for 306 yards, and is developing a nice chemistry with Ryan transfer Travon Williams, who has caught half of Thompkins’ passes for 164 yards. Head coach Ed McGettigan’s team will continue trying to get better when it opens up Class AAAA Silver Division play at South Philadelphia; after two defeats to open their season, the Rams responded last week with a 33-14 win over Valley Forge Military Academy.
