Your comments . . .

I hope you, families, and all fans enjoyed the game as much as i did
Because i had a ball, im pretty sure everybody doubted us, even sad to
Say you too ted :-(
But we laced our cleates, tightend our pads, put the mouth pieces in,
And got down to the gridiron.  30-0, i enjoyed playing against my former
West catholic teammates  like "chris diaferio, kelven quick, matt
DeMarco, robert grant, tom davis, derrell hand, michael evans, and the
Soldiers  who couldn't play like marques slocum, and antoine stout."
Shout out to all of yall but we had to do what we needed to do.  The
Game went by to quick and that is crazy to think about how that was my
Last game in philadelphia high school football.  Well, if you can post
Like a little message on the site somewhere, let all the west catholic
Players know that "i love all of them, playing with and against them was
My best experience of my life and i hope they continue their success.
And to my teammates, we put on a display of what we can do when
Everybody on the team play as a unit and not individuals.  It is crazy
How well we connected together within 3 short weeks of practice.  For
Most of us, this is not the last time we will see each other play on the
Same field.  One day we all are going to be a success and make sure we
Never forget what little we had growing up so make sure we give back to
Make life better and take care of themselves.  And one day well will all
See each other in society somehow, someway, and sometime!!!!!"  to the
Coaches, coach warren, natale, trombetta, felder, zipay, and carfagno.  Thank you
For the coaching yall gave me individually to make me a better player
And a better person.  Good luck in future seasons of coaching and keep
This victory to show how the younger players how to do it.

Im going to miss your website reporting on me ted(smile) talk to you
Ps:  any of the players from my team or anybody want to holla at me, hit
Me up at and i'll Get back at you!!!

"Famous Amos' Cookie Analyst Report of the All Star Game"

By: Amos Leak, Dobbins Tech legened (smile)

  Well, to start off, the game was mainly ruled by the Public League all game. As soon as things got rolling for the Catholic League, such as a great catch or a defensive stop, the Public League all-stars would come back stronger with an amazing catch or defensive stop, then a score.
   The game started on a kickoff by Steve Sydnor and recovery by Chris Banks and then Sammy Tranks, who to me was very impressive in play on both sides of the ball, kicked a field goal. All day it was three-and-out or four-and-out for the Catholic or just a interception or two -- matter of fact make it five for the PL and 1 for the Catholic by Marcus Williams. Later on Jerry Butler tore away the defense and ran all down their throats with hard runs. Then right before halftime, he added a great run for 79 yards for a TD. Then a 15 yard TD towards the end of the game Two other runners that impressed me was Devon Johnson & William Brownlee, who showed me impressive speed and moves to get in the open. The PL's interceptions were by Cameo Ali, Damon Griffin (who had a outstanding game on both sides of the ball), Sammy Tranks for a touchdown, and Cory Moultrie with 2. Also some great hits were given by Chuck Hughes and Steve Sydnor. Also some impressive tackles by Anthony Wallace (5), Joe Digrazio (11 total), Cornelius Bunch (9 with 2.5 sacks), Kevin Reeder (7 total). On the CL, some people impressed me even in defeat such as Evin Jones (he'll be a threat at any college; he's a hard runner). Also, I like Steve Quinn. He and Damon Griffin were my favorites in the game, getting the job done on both side of the ball. All the quarterbacks in the game showed promise such as Jim McCormick and Joe Waclawski. They showed they can throw accurate at points in time and can throw downfield in points where people can't get to. Markies Tavares...this quarterback showed all the great abilities in being a top-notch guy at the next level no matter where...strong arm...pocket presence...and most important accuracy in the pocket and on the run...and the same for Lamont Brown and Joe Marshall (even though he ended up injured). I also liked Sean Matthews with strong tackles and Derrell Hand with quickness and size. Joe Jackson and Shane McNamara showed some promise. I always save the best for last...the O-line...Brendan Gilroy and Dan Voss showed great play and as did Kyle Alston, who was the most aggressive lineman in the game. I also liked   Daniel Buyag and Brandon Stewart.

Hey ted its Joe DiGrazio from the public team [also lincoln]. That game was one of the best games i have ever played in. Every body thought the public was  going to get killed, well iam sorry but it was the other way around. We didnt care what people said, we stuck with each other and everybody brought there A game. I understand that we were the big time under doggs but hey its there to show you never look down on the public leauge. I meet alot of new people and earned alot of friends with this expierence to play in this great game. All of our coaches did a great job with getting us ready for this game. We did what we said we were going to do pub, we proved them all rong. our offence ran up and down the field and our defence well you all know what the defence did just look at the goose egg on the score board.I would like to wish the best of luck to everybody on the public team with whatever they are doing after high school.
PUBLIC LEAGUE PRIDE.................
PS: ted i think we broke a record with the biggest point differential in allstar history.

   Yo that game was bananas. B-A-N-A-N-A-S! I had so much fun practicing for the three or four weeks and then shocking the city by dismantling the Non-Public team. Maybe I am over excited but I think that this was best team that I have ever been around. Not because of the athletes and the win but because of the togetherness that we had. Throughout practice there was alot of talk but nothing ever got personal, everybody was real with each other. I will remember everybody on this team and on this game for the rest of my life. Throughout being in a championsjip this year and playing in both leagues, this is truely the highlight of my career. It was a team effort starting from the coaches putting people in the right spots even if the players thought different. Look at me; I played running back/fullback all my life and in three weeks( Thanks to Coach Trombetta, Coach Felder & Coach Zipay) I believe that I am now turned into a respectable D-Back.
After the game I was so excitied that I ran out of the locker room and didn't fully get to network with my teammates as far as exchanging numbers and stuff. If anyone from my team sees this message, hit me up at

  I would like to congratulate Frank "Roscoe" Natale (as well as everyone
else) on the historic win. It was overdue and well deserved. It felt
like old times back at Bartram when we had guys like Paul Northern &
Bryan Anderson. This experience rates near the top of my best
experiences in football. Playing in the 1983 All-Star Game and beating
Rich Gannon and company is still the best.

  I hope that every student athlete across the city in both leagues
continues to strive for excellence and achieves all of their goals.

Public League Pride!
