Larry Webster arrived at Bloomsburg (Pa.) on a basketball scholarship. Now, after switching sports two years ago, the Elkton native is leaving the Division II school as a burgeoning NFL draft prospect. Teams are intrigued by Webster, 6 feet 6 and a lean 252 pounds, because of his pass rushing potential and athleticism. In two seasons on the football team, he piled up 88 tackles, 26 sacks, 31 tackles for losses, an interception and three forced fumbles. He also caught two touchdowns lining up at tight end and returned a blocked punt for a touchdown.

Wardell Chambers never used to have this problem.A 6-foot-2 point guard, Chambers is closely guarding his man when he suddenly loses sight of the basketball. He chases his opponent in a circle, seemingly unaware that the missing object has been stuffed inside the back of his jersey. He hears the crowd roaring with laughter and the piercing sound of the referee's whistle.Another traveling violation.Chambers, one of the more gifted and intense competitors ever to play at Severna Park High School and Anne Arundel Community College, has been duped again.
