McKinley's 12-0 win over St. Joe's in high school football last weekend was the most significant city high school sports event in many years. It was some tangible and much-needed evidence that Dr. James Williams' campaign to upgrade the city program is having an effect.

Dick Jauron seems to be preparing himself for the worst. At his first media day press conference Wednesday, the Bills head coach said he was excited about the start of a new NFL season.
