It wasn't scandalous by tabloid standards, but it was a rebellious act for the young women at the Mount Saint Dominic Academy, a small all-girls Catholic high school in New Jersey. Whitney Houston, class of 1981, sometimes wore mismatched socks and rolled up her sleeves. The mischievous gospel singer would then push the maroon-colored dress code just a bit further. She would "roll up her little skirt, just a little bit above the knees, and wouldn't care if she got a detention," said Dr. Maria Pane, who lives in Lutherville and sat next to Houston in high school home room.

Brock Dean 's high school football experience was anything but typical. The 6-foot-1, 217-pound linebacker practiced against several Division I-caliber players during his four years at Bishop McDevitt - a Catholic high school in Harrisburg Pa., that has produced more than 60 DI players during coach Jeff Weachter 's tenure there. Dean also dealt with television crews at practice on a near-weekly basis, and played in front of thousands of fans on Friday nights. That college-like experience at McDevitt is one of many reasons why Weachter thinks Dean is primed for a successful college career at Maryland.
