Guy Cook, a two-way lineman for St. Joseph's Prep, has committed to Cornell University.

The 6-foot-1, 195-pound senior is projected to play outside linebacker for the Big Red.

"I don't think it's going to be an easy transition, switching to linebacker, but I'm looking forward to it," the 18-year-old said.

Cook, a captain and second-year starter for the Hawks, earned first-team all-Catholic League Class AAAA honors on defense this season.

The New Hope resident took his official visit to Cornell last weekend. He also visited the Ivy League school over the summer and last spring.

"It's a real good opportunity," said Cook, who plans to major in history and minor in business. "Football-wise, the program is headed in the right direction. Academically, I know Cornell will prepare me well for the future."

Penncrest coach exits. Paul Graham has resigned as Penncrest's head football coach, according to a release issued by the school.

In four years, Graham posted a 23-22 record. The Lions went 2-9 overall and 2-7 in the Central League this season.
