It was during a practice three years ago that Wilde Lake football coach Doug DuVall, frustrated by a scout team player who couldn't learn his assignment, flung his clipboard into the air. Papers went flying and the clipboard just missed the knuckleheaded player when it came down.To commemorate their coach's momentary loss of composure and their teammate's contribution to the display, the next day the team presented DuVall with a gold-painted clipboard with wings attached. Henceforth a gag award, known as the Gold Clipboard, has been given for the most boneheaded play of the (( year.

"I don't want to let down coach [Richard] Jackson, but I usually need people to motivate me like my family, my brothers.

"That's natural. But he went over to [assistant coach] Brian [Solo] and myself and said, 'What did I do wrong? What do I have to do to get better?

Antoine Harris (125 pounds), who will not wrestle this season, transferred to Atholton. Chris Turner (130) moved to Virginia. And middleweight Joe Underhoffer moved to California.
