When Stevenson lost a starting defenseman in senior Kyle Fendlay for personal reasons prior to the beginning of the current season, the thought was that the unit might suffer a little bit. But that hasn't been the case thanks to the emergence of sophomore Callum Robinson. As the No. 3 Mustangs prepare to meet Tuesday night a Roanoke squad that upended No. 7 Lynchburg, 9-8, last Saturday, Robinson, 21, leads the No. 3 Mustangs (11-1) in caused turnovers with 17, ranks third in ground balls with 36, and has scored two goals.

Without Rick McCallum, we may never have learned how Anakin Skywalker, with the potential to be the greatest of all Jedi Knights, instead chose to become Darth Vader, the near-perfection of evil. A week before the premiere of writer-director George Lucas' Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, McCallum, the producer of the Star Wars prequel trilogy, remembers with pleasure the crack creative team he'd assembled. "On the first Star Wars movie, George had the worst crew in England," says McCallum over the phone from London.

HOLLYWOOD -- A wintry sun slants through the old trees of Sotterley Plantation, falls in splintered rays on Agnes Kane Callum's strong, wide face, and casts her shadow against the weathered walls of the last remaining cas from around 1830. When southern Maryland's tobacco culture was at its height in the 18th century, at least 52 slaves worked Sotterley. Perhaps a dozen cabins were squeezed onto a thin strip of otherwise unuseable land between this St. Mary's County plantation's "rolling road" and a ditch-like ravine.

When Napoleon McCallum walks to the podium tonight at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City to be inducted into the 2002 College Football Hall of Fame Division I-A class, a special touch of sadness could creep through the many Naval Academy faithful in the crowd. They could be witnessing the last great Navy football player to receive such a high honor. McCallum won't be among those foreseeing such a bleak football future for the Naval Academy. "I believe the academy can turn it around," he said.

Style and grace - on and off the field - were running back Napoleon McCallum's calling cards as he left an indelible mark on Navy's program and college football. Now he has been elected to the National Football Foundation and College Football Hall of Fame as a reward for an exceptional career. Twelve other players and two coaches also were named to the Hall yesterday. "This is like the icing on the cake or the gravy on your plate," McCallum said yesterday from Las Vegas, where he owns two businesses, a signs and graphics company and a pre-paid legal documents company.

LOS ANGELES -- Running back Napoleon McCallum never gives up.First, the former Naval Academy star, who played in his spare time while serving on active duty at the start of his career, missed the 1988 and 1989 seasons because of his service commitment.Then, in late November, he was sidelined by an appendectomy, but yesterday he rushed for 81 yards and three touchdowns in the Los Angeles Raiders' 42-24 playoff victory over the Denver Broncos."It's definitely one of the best days I've had," said McCallum, who in one playoff game matched his season total of three touchdowns.
