Every so often, we'll publish action photos and photos of people in
or around the game
as a way of providing recognition. If you see Ted on the trail and think someone's photo,
even yours, deserves to be posted on www.tedsilary.com, speak up.

Trainer (24), Christian Barrett (53) and ??? (maybe Sean Guinan, 56).
Some more seniors . . . Mike "Stat Boy" Grant
(63), Fran Daulerio (65), Jack "In The
Box" Crouse (66), Brad Murtha (72). Jack does a bang-up job covering basketball for
the site and Stat Boy, oddly enough, keeps stats for him (smile). Jack made his first
start at left tackle in this one.

assistant for Frankford.
Matt Evangelist, a star QB for Frankford, is an assistant for Northeast.
Northeast WR Rockeed McCarter fights for yardage along the sideline.
. . . And a few plays later, he fights off two tacklers
en route to a 17-yard
TD catch from Cordia "Chop" Mosley.
. . . And then he's unable to make this catch among three defenders.
The aftermath. Kyle Sample (1) does a good job of
blocking Joshua Stokes' face. No. 52 is Cory Townes.

NORTHEAST FIELD UPDATE 10/28
The artificial surface is almost ready for use!
A worker sprinkles the field with ground-up tires, which help to keep the surface in place.
The scoreboard is now at the opposite end of the stadium. That'll take some getting used to.

WR Sherrod "Sheet Rock" Evers (left) is among
those who have helped QB Markies Tavares put up
all-time passing numbers at Mastbaum.
VISIT TO SJ PREP 10/26
I spoke with a journalism class at SJ Prep, as taught by
Mr. Andrew Whelan (top). Closest to him is Scott Howley, the center
and long-snapper (and the grandson of Ron Howley, assistant to Al Angelo during a great run at Frankford.) Also in the photo
is Pete "Crispy" Crispino, who covers Prep FB for the website. He's right behind the kid with the bow tie. I enjoyed the time.
Coudn't resist this pic, troops. When I stopped in an
office to say hello to AD/soccer coach Jim Murray (upper
left), this kid was sacked out on a sofa. He's a soph named Vince Heggerty, and he wasn't feeling up to par. It's
one way to get your photo on the website, though.
SJ PREP 12, O'HARA 7 10/23
John Dempsey runs 9 yards to the 17 on O'Hara's first drive . . .
. . . And FB Pat Macaulay caps it with a 17-yard run. Here he's putting a move on Chris Whitney.

Overbrook practices plays before the game.
The cheerleaders were raring to go, as well.
William Brownlee ran for 158 yards and a TD. Here, he's basically alone.
David Carter, who has guided Overbrook's defense to six
shutouts, reacts to a
strong play by his crew.
Greg Wilkins (22), Jarrett Johnson (1) and William Brownlee (20) wait to go shake hands at game's end.
The emotion was flowing . . .
Coach Ken Sturm addresses the squad and Alex Alvarez
takes much better
pictures for the DN than those you see on TS.com (smile).
BOK 8, BARTRAM 0 10/21
Bartram QB Kris Brownlee has bee flattened, but his pass
caught by Sherman Hopkins. Cortez McLaughlin is at Hopkins' feet.

CORNELIUS BUNCH, AND CENTRAL'S SQUAD 10/19
Here's Cornelius, a slotback and defensive end
and team leader for the 6-0 Lancers.
The Lancers were more than happy to take time out from a tape-watching session to mug for the camera.
KING 14, LINCOLN 13 10/18
Good action, huh?
Shame it was way
on the other side of
the field and the
zoom wasn't activated.
Joe DiGrazio makes a catch in front of King's Jared
Referee Tom McClain gets in the face of King assistant
John Sheroda. He tossed
him moments later.

King's Larry Allen has just punted. Quie'n Simmons (6)
puts a late
block on Antonio Wessells.
NEUMANN-GORETTI 22, DOUGHERTY 0 10/17

At the right, Alex Holcombe has just taken a speed-sweep
handoff from Tyler Stampone. Matt Shearon is

If necessary, Steve could probably fill in as the athletic director (smile).
The quest for team honors is still going strong.
FRANKFORD COACH MIKE CAPRIOTTI 10/12
Frankford coach Mike Capriotti was a star tailback/linebacker for the
Pioneers. He graduated in 1970. That's a team photo of the '69 squad,
which won the PL title.

O'Hara coach Danny Algeo makes a point to his players at end of first half.
Even my wife could have scored this TD, and she thinks
football is played in innings (smile). Steve Cook goes 2
yards for the final score (and his third).
CONWELL-EGAN 27, CARROLL 20 10/9
As steam comes off his head, Steve Slaton (22) gathers
with his C-E teammates for the post-game
talk. Slaton rushed for three TDs and 263 yards, raising his career total to 5,016, and clinched
the win with an interception on C-E's 13 in the last minute.

This is the start of something momentous, folks. West

the books as a 100-yard return). No. 86 is Chuck French.

Jerry Butler fends off Sammy Tranks as Lance Gribbin (58) and Caison Austin (55) give chase.
The smallest Cougar has the biggest heart. With Jared
Williams leading the way, 5-4,
140-pound Raheem "Rah-Rah" Isaac runs for yardage.
The Eagles await coach Ron Cohen's post-game talk. No. 8,
DB Mikal Sabree, seems to be in an especially
good mood (smile).
SJ PREP 23, LA SALLE 12 10/3
Chuck "Gotta Have" Hart, SJ Prep's legendary
manager and likely the long lost
brother of our own Thomas "Hockey Puck" McKenna, practices his kicking. At
summer camp, Chuck boomed a 40-yard FG from a tee to save the players one day's
worth of "gassers." Said coach Gil Brooks, "It was one of the greatest moments in
the history of sports."
The Prep's student rooters.

back judge Tim Gallagher
wants the ball. No. 6 is Andy Shalbrack.
Chris Whitney, Prep's soph QB, loads up.
Prep's David Clement makes one of his two fourth quarter
interceptions in front of La

Brian Rorick (10) is among those wrapping up McDevitt's Damian Jordan.
Carroll's Brent Christie is off to the races for a 91-yard TD.

Josh Halladay's head. Sorry, troops.

have been best friends since their days at West
REFURBISHING OF NE'S STADIUM 10/1
The line closest to the camera is the 50. Fifteen yards of turf have been laid.
A closer look. That's a thin coating of gravel below the turf. Beneath that is coarse gravel.
Another look at the construction.
One more look, from a different angle.
