The Berlin Wall and Rome, the Northwest's picturesque national parks and Georgia's Blue Ridge mountains, the Rio Grande and the gateway to Mexico -- El Paso, Texas -- have been important stops in the life of Andrew Smith.Meade's "traveling man" on and off the football field, Smith has been to places and had life experiences that most teen-agers can only read about or watch on TV or the Internet.But there is one other trip he desperately wants to make."I've never been to any type of playoffs at any level, and it's my goal to live that experience," said the 17-year-old Smith, who is the Mustangs' do-it-all guy as quarterback, defensive back, punter and kick returner.

Annapolis senior co-captains Ben Graham and Andrew Smith are, for the most part, different. That is, except for a couple of things: wrestling and winning. Graham is reserved and takes a straight-ahead, blue-collar manner to the mat that persistently wears on an opponent for six minutes. Smith is more brash, and that, too, shows up when Smith brings out his free-flowing and fancy moves. So what would they do without each other? "Good question," said Annapolis coach Tom Sfakiyanudis. "I think the biggest asset they have may be each other."

SPACE MOONDUST: IN SEARCH OF THE MEN WHO FELL TO EARTH By Andrew Smith. 4th Estate. 372 pages. So Discovery finally clawed its way into space, only to find its lethal problem with falling debris still unresolved. Astronauts had to pluck loose stuffing from the shuttle's belly before they could come home. And, on landing, their dwindling fleet of 20-year-old spaceships was grounded. Again. Americans old enough to remember the heady, heroic days of Armstrong and Aldrin, Apollo and the Sea of Tranquillity, must wonder where the nation's glorious manned space program jumped the tracks.

Eastern Tech's Trent Dixon told someone before last night's 112-pound title bout of the Arundel Tournament that "wrestling's not my life, it's only a part of it." But the senior wrestled like his life depended on it in a 3-2 victory over DeMatha's Cam Watkins in the 17-team event's toughest weight class. Dixon (16-1), a former state champion, escaped with one minute left and held off Watkins (21-3), who was coming off a 4-2 semifinal victory was over Churchill's Danny April.

As a Calvert Hall freshman wrestler last season, Brad Gab- rish was just two wins over .500, was pinned twice and lost by 15 or more points more times than he would like to recall. But at yesterday's fourth annual Ed Peery Invitational at Annapolis Area Christian School, Gabrish showed his rivals the ceiling. The sophomore scored 22 near-fall point in three bouts, topped by his 13 back points in a 20-6, title-bout win over Kyle Gogar of Broadneck at 130 pounds to lead the Cardinals to the overall crown in the 12-team event.
