BRANDYWINE HUNDRED – Salesianum faced an early start in its season-opening football game Sept. 9 at Concord, but the hour didn’t seem to make a difference. The Sals came out and displayed a multi-pronged offense and a stout defense in a 34-6 win over the Raiders.

Sallies, ranked third in Division I by 302 Sports, set the tone on their first possession of the game. Jassiem Lynch returned the kickoff to the Salesianum 37-yard line, and the offense went to work under the guidance of senior quarterback Zach Gwynn. They marched down the field, converting a fourth down along the way. On a second-and-10 from the Raiders’ 37, Gwynn hit a leaping Logan Bushweller with a 34-yard pass, setting up a first and goal. Nick Merlino punched it in from two yards out for the 7-0 lead. Read more »

WILMINGTON – More than 750 miles separate St. Mary Magdalen School and the Georgia Dome, the home of the Atlanta Falcons. That is approximately twice the distance from the school to Gillette Stadium, which the New England Patriots call home.

But this Sunday, when the teams meet in Houston in Super Bowl LI, the rooting interest at St. Mary Magdalen will be decidedly in the Falcons’ favor, thanks to the very personal connection the school has with one Atlanta player. Paul Worrilow, a Falcons linebacker, graduated from St. Mary Magdalen in 2004 and got his start playing football with the parish Catholic Youth Ministry program. Read more »

Archmere’s Patrick Udovich Jr. joins his father as DeLucia Award recipient

Dialog reporter

 

CLAYMONT – When the all-state football teams were announced a month ago, a familiar name from Archmere Academy returned to the first team. There, among the best players Delaware high school had to offer was Patrick Udovich Jr.

That may have brought a sense of deja vu for longtime high school football fans. Thirty-two years ago, Udovich’s father, Patrick Sr., was also a first-team all-state selection on offense, defense and special teams. The younger Udovich was happy to keep the family legacy going, getting the honor for his work at fullback, but prouder about what it says about Archmere football. Read more »

Fundraiser benefits Make-A-Wish

BRANDYWINE HUNDRED — Before the Christmas break, St. Edmond’s Academy held a week of fundraising for Make-A-Wish Philadelphia, Northern Delaware and Susquehanna Valley. The students raised $4,384 for the foundation, well above the goal of $650.

Organized by the student council, the boys at St. Edmond’s bought Make-A-Wish bracelets and pretzels, and they held an ugly Christmas sweater contest. The school administration had promised to take a pie in the face from the contest winners if the $650 goal was reached.

“The school implemented a weeklong fundraiser that had amazing results and will help support our mission to fulfill wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions,” said Dennis J. Heron, president and CEO of the local Make-A-Wish foundation.
