Bryant Johnson, says City coach George Petrides, is as an example of what can happen when a student-athlete is determined both on the field and in classes.Johnson, a 6-foot-3, 190-pound wide receiver, trains hard. His bench press is nearing 300 pounds. He entered the season as a preseason All-American in several tout sheets, including The National Recruiting Advisor, which rated him No. 17 among the nation's top 22 receiver prospects for good reason. He was a second-team All-Metro player last fall.

Representing Dunbar High with a maroon suit and maroon tie, Tavon Austin strolled into Radio City Music Hall around 7 p.m. Thursday night to see his lifelong dream fulfilled. At 7:34 p.m., he and 22 other top prospects were introduced to the crowd. Each towered over him. Austin then retreated to the green room, downed a bag of potato chips and watched the draft unfold, his legs shaking the whole time, with a group of family and friends, including his mother, Cathy Green, and grandmother, Louann Green.

For Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Bryant Johnson, going on the road meant going home. When the Cardinals traveled to Baltimore to face the Ravens yesterday at M&T Bank Stadium, it was Johnson's first visit to his hometown as an NFL player since Arizona drafted him in the first round in 2003. It was a trip Johnson, a two-time All-Baltimore City/County pick and an All-Metro selection in his senior year at City, had been looking forward to since the schedule was released earlier this year.

Keion Carpenter walks through the gates of his former high school, Woodlawn, making his way to a tunnel under the bleachers. He has made this walk hundreds of times before, including places like the Georgia Dome in Atlanta and Lane Stadium at Virginia Tech. The retired NFL defensive back who now runs the Shutdown Academy - a non-profit academic institution that offers sports - bobs his head to the Jay-Z blaring from the speakers on the field and watches a 12-year-old from New Jersey break out on a long run. Carpenter walks over to the sidelines to join the other two Shutdown Academy founders, current New York Jets linebacker Aaron Maybin and Houston Texans wide receiver Bryant Johnson, snapping pictures with kids and talking football with adults who used to watch him every Sunday in the fall.

Tight end Ben Utecht signed an offer sheet with the Cincinnati Bengals for a three-year contract. The fourth-year pro is a restricted free agent from the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts can keep him by matching the Bengals' offer within a week. Utecht played in 14 games last season, with 31 catches for 364 yards and one touchdown. Et cetera -- The Ravens officially signed cornerback Frank Walker to a two-year contract. He played for the Packers last season and is expected to compete for the team's third cornerback position.

For City's Bryant Johnson, big plays aren't out of the ordinary. In five minutes last night, however, the Penn State-bound senior made two big plays No. 10 ranked Dunbar won't soon forget.First, he raced 65 yards with a fumble for a defensive touchdown. Then he caught a 24-yard touchdown pass as the No. 12 Knights edged the Poets, 19-18, at Patterson Park's Utz Twardowicz Field.Manhandled throughout the first quarter, City (3-1 overall, 1-0 in the City East Division) took advantage of Johnson's heroics to turn the game around.

Two weeks ago, City was ranked No. 3 at 4-0, having outscored the opposition by 180-14 with three shutouts. But consecutive setbacks to St. Mary's and Calvert Hall dropped the Black Knights to No. 15 and jeopardized their playoff hopes.Those losses may have been the worst thing to happen to City's opponents -- just ask No. 2 Loyola, a 27-7 loser to the visiting Knights yesterday."They were bigger, stronger, tougher and they kicked our butts," said coach Joe Brune, whose Dons (4-2) own a 27-21 win over St. Mary's, which beat City, 27-13.

City's season-opening loss to C. Milton Wright last season set the tone for the Knights' worst campaign in the past 10 years.If yesterday's rematch is any indication, however, this will be a very different season for City.The 11th-ranked Knights throttled the third-ranked Mustangs, 44-7, at City.Although City (1-0) returned 12 starters and C.M. Wright (0-1) had 17 starters back, it was apparent from the outset that these were not the same teams that met last season when the Mustangs prevailed, 30-14.

Derrick Mason played six seasons for the Ravens, and he also saw them just two weeks ago while he was with the New York Jets. That prompted the obvious question to Houston Texans coach Gary Kubiak on whether the decision to acquire the veteran receiver Tuesday night was motivated partly by a desire to get more information on the Ravens, their opponent Sunday.   "Not at all. We're going through some issues right now as a football team," Kubiak said this morning on a conference call with Ravens reporters.

TEMPE, Ariz. - Everything about Anquan Boldin indicated he wouldn't be doing what he is doing as a rookie receiver for the Arizona Cardinals. He wasn't fast. His 4.7-second time in the 40-yard dash was a major reason he slipped to late in the second round of the 2003 draft. He wasn't experienced. He was a quarterback in high school, and his development as a wide-out at Florida State was hampered by a major knee injury and the time he spent playing quarterback there. He wasn't the primary option.

Back when he was at Mountain View High School in Mesa, Ariz., Ravens tight end Todd Heap played a game at Sun Devil Stadium for the state football championship. Heap estimated about 25,000 people attended that game, which may be more than attend tomorrow's Arizona Cardinals game against the Ravens. As of Wednesday, 23,506 tickets had been sold. "We probably at least had that many," Heap said. Heap is returning to his home state as a Pro Bowl player, and will play his first game on his college campus of Arizona State since he was the Ravens' first-round pick in the 2001 draft.

Penn State sophomore wide receiver Gerald Smith could be jumping with joy these days. The former Howard High standout is emerging as a trusted third member of the Nittany Lions' wide-out rotation, catching two passes for 25 yards Saturday against Ohio State in Columbus. But the Nittany Lions not only lost that game, 13-7, to the Buckeyes, but also have been beaten twice in overtime this season in Big Ten games, falling to 2-3 in the league and 5-3 overall. "Losing two overtime games in one season, what are the chances of that?"

In yesterday's 20-18 upset of No. 12-ranked Dunbar, unranked City capitalized on five turnovers, overcame specialized coverage against its top player, and got a major contribution from a running back who couldn't make last year's team.Lamar Jones, cut from last year's squad, rushed for two touchdowns and 78 yards, and Bryant Johnson (five receptions, 118 yards, one touchdown) benefited from the special attention Dunbar's defense paid to All-Metro wide receiver Warren Smith.Though limited to just one reception for 13 yards, the 6-foot-4 Smith found other ways to contribute as the Knights improved to 2-2 overall (1-0 in the city's East Division)

In 2002, Oregon won its first six games and was ranked as high as sixth in the country. But before any meaningful comparisons were made to 2001, when quarterback Joey Harrington led the Ducks to an 11-1 season and a No. 2 final ranking, Oregon collapsed. The 2002 Ducks lost six of their last seven games. Which is why few paid attention to Oregon before this season, except to make fun of the team's bright green-and-yellow uniforms. All but the neon uniforms changed last Saturday when the then-No.

If production were the only issue, the selection of E.J. Henderson in today's NFL draft would be uncomplicated. He has delivered 473 tackles over four years, earning All-America honors over the past two and garnering major awards in his final campaign at Maryland. But the Aberdeen native has spent the past four months trying to display his speed and prove that his doctored back is fit for the rigors of professional football. Potential can shade the portrait of the NFL draft, which begins at noon today.
