I I I I SPORTS OU' {'DOORS Cape goes up, over McKean in final scrimmage an opener for Friday night foot- ball." The scrimmage was a down and distance format with punts but no live coverage. Cape went for the two-point conversion after each score electing not to kick. Last year the snap, punt and coverage put the Vikings in bad field position time and again. Kyle Kaminski, only a sophomore with a strong leg, will handle the punting duties while Isaiah Briscoe will do the long snapping. Quarterback Max Coveleski led two long drives down the field finding right end Jimmy McDow- ell,. at 6-foot-1, 230 pounds, on two occasions. McDowell has that converted lineman look about him, but his uncles Paul and Eddie McDowell were big time running backs at Bishop Egan High school in the Philadelphia Catholic League and totaled three city championships. "Jimmy has been a huge sur- Continued on page &5 By Dave Frederick Cape Gazette staff Dan McPike went deep to Ike Driskill who had turned the McK- can safety sideways for a long touchdown pass and the crowd went wild. Freshman Jordan Allen showed natural talent waiting and setting up his blockers on two touchdown runs, and fullback Casey Fagan behind the Big Ts - Joey Tabler and Tony Taylor - moved the pile five and six yards at a clip. "We had a great Preseason which ends tonight," said head coach Sean Brennan. "Now we have to go play 10." Cape will open the season at 7 p.m. this Friday, Sept. 9, hosting an Indian River squad that went 8- 4 last season under head coach Jimmy Bunting. "The River" has developed that football mentality with most of their staff serving as teachers inside the high school. "It's a rivalry for sure," said Casey Fagan. "It's just a heck of nan Coo pho Cape defens/ve lineman (l-r) Eke Drisk/ll flddden), Zaek Wood and Shemik Thompson gang tackle a McKean ball earrierin last Friday's serimmal I ] Lend Kelli Meoli a hand as st,,,,: '.Races for a Cure' A STORY TO TELL - Kelli Meoli guessed her time within a hundredth of a second to win last Saturday's Last Blast Prediction 5K Run in Rehoboth, but two years ago at 33 years old, she could never have predicted a diag- nosis of breast cancer. "I was shocked," said the young mother of three whose contagious smile brightened an already bril- liant summer morning. My friend here, Stephanie Magee, got me in- to running. I was looking for something positive instead of- worrying about a reoccurrence." Kelli graduated from UT at Memphis, is a nurse by training and currently a fulltime mother to her children Rachel, Lauren and Dylan. Her husband Mike is a well known local businessman. "I will be doing the Race for the Cure in Baltimore on Oct. 1," Kelli said. "Seventy-five percent of the money raised goes to breast cancer research." The race begins at the Ravens football stadium.

Sure, there are kids with dif- ferent learning styles, some falling into the category of dis- abilities, but mostly you either get it or you sit. Last week as many Cape teachers were crying for more preparation time to get ready for new rotating classes and students, a mandatory all-day in- service on dyslexia was dropped on their heads. I tried to imagine a mandatory " in-service for football coaches conducted by someone who helped coach a youth team 20 years earlier - seminar on "How : " To Coach the Exceptional Ath- IMPULSIVE DYSLEXIC-!ete?, !.waSahead f0otball coach Athletic coaches teach everybody + at a special school before coming at the same+ time.+ Thererare no+ ,to cape+ = We, including me, +: " .... " r C _, ,:specfia,l exctioaahttes; at p a _ , shared +emotional- disturbanee+ as our primary compromising condi- tion and that was overridden and sprinkled throughout the team with every learning and behavior disorder ever diagnosed by mod- em medicine. But I didn't need some dopey in-service to coach them. I knew how to get the No. 2 back through the No. 4 hole and how to teach my lineman to block to the point of attack. My quarter- back Eddie "Hart Attack the Quarterback" was a 19-year-old black kid from West Philly with a wrap around beard. Eddie was an impulsive dyslexic, which meant he did the first thing that came to his mind but only backwards. Our right guard was "Stuttering" Jim Potts who sometimes got Ed- die squashed failing to pick up a blitzing linebacker. Once I pulled Potts from the game. "What just happened out there Potts?" "Da Da Da Da." I looked down at my watch. "Da linebacker blitzed inside gap and I didn't step down and you ain't funny, coach." I know stutterering is based on conflicting emotions so I just let off the pressure. I didn't need an in-service. Like all good coaches I'll find a way to coach everyone. Coaches should run the next mandatory in-service and, not on- ly will it be fun and informative, but it will be over in 90 minutes just like a practice. JAEGERMEISTER - He's only 10 months old but Brain Jae- gar got an early morning ride to watch his parents run in the Last Blast Prediction 5K last Saturday in Rehoboth. BRIAN JAEGER OFF THE HOOK "I'm on vacation from D.C. and they getme up early for this race. I'm trying to relax this weekend." Actually Brian only babbles, but he seemed to be emitting a much deeper message. GEORGETOWN ROCKS THE HOUSE - I was in lying in limbo waiting for the dice to roll last Saturday night resting be- tween Dominoes and Roadsters listening to the end of the Mary- land/Navy game on my new best toy Sirius Satellite Radio. I'm not a fan of many head coaches, but I love Paul Johnson Of Navy going back to his Georgia Southern days. The guy can just flatout Continued on page 33
