COLLEGE PARK - Tony Jackson has waited, through sprains, tears and losses. Now, all the good things might be coming for the Maryland safety in his fourth year since graduating from Wilde Lake High School. He is two knocks on wood - one before each of the remaining games - from getting through a season without an injury that keeps him out of action. He is having a season worthy of all-league honors, and his coach, Ron Vanderlinden, has said so repeatedly over the past few weeks. He is - along with his Maryland teammates - one win away from possibly his first bowl appearance, which would finish a rebuilding project that started in his freshman season.

It had all the makings of a blowout -- and it was.In its first state playoff game, Forest Park had to face a Fort Hill team that is ranked No. 2 in the state by the Associated Press and has won all but two games by 37 or more points.With six players out because of academic ineligibilities, the Foresters couldn't match the Sentinels' firepower, not to mention their fans, in a 42-12 defeat in a state 2A quarterfinal contest at Poly yesterday.The Sentinels of Allegany County (11-0), who lost to Dunbar in last season's state 2A title game, advance to the semifinals, where they will play host to Potomac of Prince George's County next weekend.

COLLEGE PARK - Aaron Thompson is no glory hound, but he is rather amazed at how little attention he and the Maryland football team receive in his hometown of Baltimore. Thompson said he can walk around his west Baltimore neighborhood and rarely ever hear anybody talk about the gridiron Terps. "Everybody down there knows about Maryland basketball," he said. "I honestly don't think there are too many Terps football fans. I don't think they [Terps] do enough promotion. They need to do more commercials and have billboards with the Terps on them.

COLLEGE PARK -- Imagine this.Aaron Thompson was just seven games into his collegiate football career at Maryland when he returned to Mount St. Joseph last fall for a homecoming game and received the royal treatment.The lean and muscular linebacker was not only given a standing ovation during the game against St. Mary's, but they played an old song to honor the athlete simply known as "Train" in high school."Come on, Ride That Train," sang the Squad City DJs in a replay of a record Thompson almost wore out at St. Joe three years ago, when he was one of the most prolific running backs in state high school history.

The Terps had won at Wake Forest, 14-0, on Oct. 17, 1987.
