PhillyVoice High School Football Top 10: Perkiomen School keeps football alive as first PA eight-man champion

Derek McCord was an anomaly. He was a teenager raised in Long Island, New York, and was a devout Denver Broncos fan. Even today, McCord can reel off the date as if recalling a tragic family moment: January 25, 1987.

Upon further review: An exclusive look behind the scenes at NFL headquarters on game day

No one would think this is the hub of the football universe. Well-dressed tourists and shaggy stranglers alike sporadically walk by without a hint of what’s about to go inside the building they pass. While National Football League stadiums across the country fill up each Sunday, the league’s main headquarters is quite the opposite. The makeshift overhanging green facade, with the address 345 Park Ave. embossed in gold above a solitary glass door, is as nondescript as it comes.
