• Knee surgery has sidetracked rather than derailed Red Bank senior Josey Janow's plans to follow up on an appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy. The linebacker injured his knee in the eighth game of last season and thought physical therapy had solved the problem. However, when he started playing soccer, swelling led to subsequent surgery. So before beginnning his commitment with Navy he'll spend a year at Marion (Ala.) Military Institute, according to his father, Red Bank football assistant coach Chuck Janow.
