Becoming the third Long Branch High School football player to commit to the Rutgers program in the past two seasons, Ken Gillespie gave the Scarlet Knights a verbal commitment to join the team for the 2003 season on Thursday.
Gillespie, who was also considering Syracuse, Lehigh, Maryland, Lafayette, and Penn St., is currently in the midst of a fine senior season as a two-way player at tight end and defensive end for the Green Wave.

Moorestown High School running back Albert Young admits he wasn't optimistic heading into his senior season.
"Really, I didn't know what to expect," Young said. "I knew we had a very young team and we had a very disappointing season last year. I figured we could be a good team, but I really didn't expect us to be this good."
On Friday, Young guided the Quakers to their seventh victory of the season. He rushed for 189 yards and four touchdowns en route to a 31-0 Burlington/Olympic Football League victory over Timber Creek.

The haze that has hung over the horizon of the college football season for much of the fall is lifting. After Oklahoma's 30-26 loss to Texas A&M on Saturday and victories by Ohio State and Miami (Fla.), the Bowl Championship Series standings, when released today, will show the Buckeyes and Hurricanes on a collision course to meet for the national championship Jan. 3 in the Fiesta Bowl.
