The poster, in large block letters, invited high school football players to a clinic and combine Saturday "featuring former N.Y. Giant All-Pro & Super Bowl Veteran Rodney Hampton," whose color photo appeared front and center. The idea was for the teenagers to pay $200 - $150 if they registered early - to maximize their chances of landing college scholarships while spending a day at an Annapolis high school field getting tips from Hampton and other former NFL stars. But Hampton and the other invited former NFL players - Brian Mitchell, Charley Taylor and Jessie Armstead - never showed up at Broadneck.

"Women in the Military: Flirting with Disaster," by Brian Mitchell. Regnery. 405 pages. $24.95.Finally, a guy blurts out what others usually only dare to whine privately after a few beers: They had to let in women - and the old fraternity was ruined.Or, as Army veteran Brian Mitchell laments: The gutless brass sold out the nation's brave officers and gentlemen and left the once-proud military weak-kneed and demoralized. But as his book demonstrates, the politically correct don't have the monopoly on self-righteous and tiresome arguments about women in the military.

Tony Award-winning actor Brian Stokes Mitchell performs two rituals whenever he begins a play in a new theater. He burns sage throughout the building to drive out evil spirits. And before the first performance, he gathers the cast on stage and shares the history of the theater. Observing rituals reinforces the actor's belief that his life has followed definite patterns. These patterns go all the way back to his birth, which happened to fall on Halloween, a holiday he believes is an ideal birthday for an actor.

Brian Mitchell isn't worried about the imminent arrival of Desmond Howard."I'm not going to change if Desmond is here or not. I'm going to be Brian Mitchell if he's here and I'm going to be Brian Mitchell if he's not," he said after his 97-yard kickoff return for a touchdown helped the Washington Redskins defeat the Los Angeles Raiders, 27-23, in a preseason game Saturday at the Los Angeles Coliseum.With the return, Mitchell made it clear he plans to hold on to the kick-returning job even if the Heisman Trophy winner signs a $5.9 million, four-year deal in the next day or two.Leigh Steinberg, Howard's agent, said yesterday the two sides are "very, very close" and the deal could be done "any day now," but general manager Charley Casserly said last night "there's no deal tonight."

WASHINGTON -- Larry Csonka, phone your service.It's getting serious now. The Redskins are 9-0, with most of the legitimate competition out of the way, and now somebody's knocking the other guys' game-winning field goals out of the sky, so where's it all going to end?It used to be you wondered if the Redskins would lose. Now, you wonder if they can lose."You figure we'll lose a game, if you base it on the odds," said Redskins linebacker Matt Millen.Sure, if you want to be logical about it. If you want to be logical, then where does Mark Lemke fit in?

A year's worth of experience, some added speed and depth, and a little tinkering on defense can do wonders.Just ask Carroll Christian boys basketball coach Randy Peterson, whose Patriots are 5-1 this season after winning just six games in rebuilding last year.The Patriots were behind 39-34 entering the fourth quarter in their season opener against Chapelgate on Nov. 28. They had a 30-point fourth quarter and went on to a 64-53 win. Other than a tough overtime loss to Calvary early last week, the Patriots have been flawless going into today's game against Broadfording -- regular season co- and tournament champs of the Potomac Christian Athletic Conference last season.

ASHBURN, Va. - Brian Mitchell is entering today's game with evil intentions. He wants big-time revenge when his Philadelphia Eagles (3-2) face the Washington Redskins (3-2) at 1 at Veterans Stadium. The game is for at least a share of first place in the NFC East, but so much more for Mitchell. It's a chance for him to stick it to his former team, as he has talked about doing since the Redskins cut him last spring after 10 seasons. It is a chance to show that he, unlike some members of the Redskins' organization thought, has not lost a step.
