Joe Flacco, the Blue Hens star quarterback and likely NFL high draft pick, also made the list.

Goldey-Beacom College pulled out men's and women's hoops vic- tories over Chestnut Hill Academy last Tuesday night. Derek Savage, a senior captain and 1,000-point scorer, led an 80- 60 men's win with 18 points and nine rebounds - at Cape we'd throw in anoth- er rebound when no one was looking - while Toni JONES Jones paced a 75-57 win collecting 21 points and nine rebounds.
