In a game of defensive deception, Towson University aced its final nonconference test last night. Now the real work begins. The Tigers found a new running back and a comfort zone in rush defense with a 10-3 victory over Liberty in front of 4,665 at Johnny Unitas Stadium. "There's no such thing as an ugly girl in a beauty contest, and there's no such thing as an ugly win," coach Gordy Combs said after Towson notched its first 3-0 start since 2000. If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, this was a game defensive purists could love.

CASTOR, La. -- On the fourth Sunday in July, John Lee Cockerham was here in his hometown for the baptism of his twin sons. People in this northwest corner of Louisiana think of him as an unlikely success story, a man who started with nothing to become a major in the Army. He and his 17 siblings grew up without electricity and running water. Yet even after he made it out of Castor, his ties there remained strong. The congregation at New Friendship Baptist Church celebrated his last promotion with a parade.
