I was a member of the graduating class of 1972 at Cardinal Gibbons. What an incredible time to be a teenager in the late '60s and early '70s for many reasons. I was so proud when I received my acceptance letter to attend an all-boys Catholic high school with such a great reputation. In looking back, they were the most formative years of my life. I will never forget the values we learned there. I will also never forget playing junior varsity and varsity baseball on the same field as Babe Ruth.

Nike pulled out all the stops to prevent Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant , a Washington native, from signing a shoe deal with Baltimore-based Under Armour. Durant's seven-year contract with Nike is expiring, and Under Armour reportedly offered him a 10-year deal worth $265million to $285 million. However, Nike has exercised its right to match any rival shoe company's offer to the NBA's reigning Most Valuable Player, according to ESPN. Nike officials on Saturday told Durant and his representatives at Jay Z 's Roc Nation Sports that they would match Under Armour's offer.

My brother and I graduated Cardinal Gibbons in the late '70s. This place changed my life. I had no idea of it's financial problems. Gibbons has always been a bright spot during troubled times in the city school system. They were personally interested in the individual student. The all-male student body and dress code made for a unique environment and reduced the daily distraction that high school kids deal with today. What a shame. Conrad Johnson

A plan to build subsidized housing on the former Cardinal Gibbons School campus in Southwest Baltimore has met with opposition from some neighbors worried about traffic and property values. The concerns have led to a dispute between the communities and neighboring Saint Agnes Hospital, which purchased the 32-acre property two years ago after the school closed with the intention of doing something to help the area. Already the hospital and the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation have raised $1.4 million to update the property's baseball field, where Babe Ruth played as a student at St. Mary's Industrial School for Boys, which preceded Cardinal Gibbons on the Caton Avenue site.

Steve Wojciechowski still looks like the pugnacious point guard who came out of Cardinal Gibbons nearly two decades ago and proved those wrong who said he wouldn't make an impact at Duke. He's spent the past 13 years as an assistant and now associate head coach wunder the legendary Mike Krzyzewski and the past six helping Krzyzewski's staff for the U.S. Olympic team. In describing his role with the national team, Wojciechowski said he, fellow Duke associate coach Chris Collins and Syracuse associate head coach Mike Hopkins help prepare scouting reports on upcoming opponents as well as get on the court during practice to run drills for the likes of LeBron James and Kobe Bryant.

Boys' Latin knew it had been in a battle last night. Its starting quarterback, Grady Gamble, was sidelined with a hip injury. Receiver/defensive back James Neal's hamstring was cramping up. And several other Lakers players complained of being banged up. But the visiting Lakers persevered over Cardinal Gibbons, escaping with a 16-13 Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association B Conference North Division victory. The win sets up Friday's North Division title game against St. Paul's, with the winner meeting South Division champ Archbishop Spalding in the inaugural B Conference championship game Nov. 12 at Towson University's Johnny Unitas Stadium.

Seemingly everyone close to Matt Brown calls the diminutive Temple running back a dynamic personality - someone who draws attention and causes groups to flock in his direction. But for years, Brown, 5 feet 5, 170 pounds, could barely get any college recruiters to listen to him. Ever since he started playing running back for the Northwood Rams Pop Warner team, Brown knew he would play Division I football. It was a dream that just wouldn't fade. He went everywhere he could - he started at City, transferred to Cardinal Gibbons and then Peddie School in Hightstown, N.J., went to a prep school in New York and finally landed at Temple.

The opportunities to be a college head coach had been there before for longtime Duke assistant Steve Wojciechowski. “Finding a school that matches who I am as a person and the vision I have for the program is really important,” Wojciechowski said a couple of years ago. “But I want to be a head coach and run my own program and do the things that happened to me at Duke. I want to do that for other kids”. Wojciechowski hopes to have found that match at Marquette. The 37-year-old Wojciechowski, who grew up in Severna Park and played at Cardinal Gibbons, was introduced as the head coach of the Golden Eagles Tuesday at a press conference in Milwaukee.

There were moments when Kanu Aja thought about giving up basketball. The 6-foot-9, 245-pound power forward attended four high schools - two of which closed - in five years, in addition to battling injury and weight issues. The adversity didn't end there. Aja, who “moved around a lot” in Baltimore and Howard counties, had minimal college interest and ended up across the country at a junior college that doesn't give out scholarships. “JUCO basketball is nuts,” said Justin Labagh, Aja's coach at the City College of San Francisco.

Saint Agnes Hospital and the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation said Friday that they have raised $1.4 million to renovate the baseball field of the former Cardinal Gibbons School, preserving a site where Babe Ruth once played. The hospital, meanwhile, is firming up plans to add homes and offices around the field, on the campus of the Catholic school that closed in 2010. Saint Agnes plans to break ground on the baseball field within the next year, launching what officials have envisioned as Gibbons Commons, a mixed-use development on Caton Avenue, across the street from the hospital.

An elegant marble statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary graces the entrance to St. Augustine School in Elkridge, moved there by alumni of the shuttered Cardinal Gibbons School. The sculpted image of a veiled young woman stands beneath a large white cross and above a memorial plaque. When Charlotte "Sis" Slavotinek learned that the archdiocese was closing the all-boys Catholic high school two years ago, she insisted that the statue, dedicated to her son Michael, his two classmates and their teacher who died in a 1968 plane crash, be relocated.
