When Byron Westmorland takes the floor with the rest of his Bowie State teammates Saturday night in the first round of the NCAA Division II Tournament, he'll do so knowing he's accomplished what he set out to do. Two weeks ago he led Bowie State on an unexpected run through the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association tournament. In the championship game, Westmorland scored a career-high 38 points to help the Bulldogs capture their first conference championship in 10 years, and earned game MVP honors in the process.

The Morgan State football team faces a daunting schedule in the coming season, including traveling to College Park to face Maryland for the first time and a trip to distant North Dakota State in back-to-back games. And that's before the Bears open their Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference schedule against Howard in East Rutherford, N.J., in one of the first games at the new Giants Stadium -- an experience the players won't soon forget. But the Bears are focusing all their attention on their first game of the season, against Bowie State on Sept.

Seven years ago, most of the athletic world looked at Isaac Redman and saw a young man who had thrown away a promising football career. Bowie State coach Damon Wilson looked at Redman and saw a kid who, regardless of what mistakes he had made, did not deserve to be thrown away. Sunday night, Redman will play running back for the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XVL. He's not a star, but he is a valuable backup who scored a game-winning touchdown against the Ravens earlier this season.

Robert Council's final numbers in Morgan State's 28-3 rout of visiting Bowie State might suggest that the redshirt senior quarterback fared poorly in that game. But that's not how Council or his coach saw it. Council threw just 10 passes, completed two, and gained 18 yards. But with redshirt sophomore running back Herb Walker Jr. carrying the ball 20 times for 180 yards and two touchdowns, the Bears (1-2) didn't really need to rely on Council to lead the offense through the air. “We could've thrown the ball,” said Council, who added 12 rushes for 73 yards and two touchdowns.

Lee Hull didn't need any convincing that his Morgan State defense was physical. What he had been waiting for was proof that the unit could stop opposing offenses. Hull got what he wanted in the Bears' 28-3 rout of Bowie State at Hughes Stadium on Saturday. A defense that had surrendered a combined 60 points and 53 first downs in back-to-back losses allowed just a first-quarter field goal and 19 first downs overall. After the Bulldogs (0-2) went 69 yards on their first drive to convert a 37-yard field goal, they had only one longer series, and that ended in a fumble Morgan State (1-2)

After starting fast but finishing poorly in its first two games, the Morgan State football team flipped the script Saturday. The Bears overcame a lethargic start, woke up their sleeping offense and scored all four of the game's touchdowns in the second half to knock off visiting Bowie State, 28-3, before an announced 4,238 at Hughes Stadium. Morgan State was happy to win its first game of the season, but Bears first-year coach Lee Hull said the team can ill afford slow starts.

As one of the shortest players on the Morgan State football team, Herb Walker Jr. has a nickname among his Bears teammates: "Smurf. " The running back, who recently confessed to being 1 inch shorter than his already diminutive listed height of 5 feet 8, has heard worse from defenses. The insults don't bother him as much as the assumptions behind them. Opponents tell Walker he's "soft. Or I don't run hard," he said. "But they'll feel me when I get the ball. " Neither label fit after the 19-year-old Walker set a school record a week ago. In Morgan State's 26-23 loss Saturday to Holy Cross, 26-23, the sophomore rushed for 271 yards and two touchdowns on 29 carries.
