SIMPLY THE BECHT'ST ... and some hoop talk

Even as he was one of the most durable tight ends of his generation, Monsignor Bonner grad Anthony Becht never forgot his Delaware County roots.

So there he was Tuesday at Widener, watching the Friars fall, 3-1, to Neumann-Goretti in the Catholic League baseball final befort heading out to supply an inspirational message to the Hero Bowl football players.

Becht, among the final cuts of the Arizona Cardinals last summer, would like to play pro football again. But the lockout has been particularly tough on veteran free agents who haven't had a chance to show what they can do in a formal setting.

Check out my column on Becht and his career and his commitments to Delco in the Daily Times and on Wednesday.

And as usual, no visit to Chester is complete without some basketball talk. Specifically, why is the Clippers' Lamon Church still unsigned as a college player?

My man Chris Vito, the Chester beat writer for the Daily Times, says Church is getting closer to a decision and is considering St. Francis (Pa.) and LIU, among other options.
