At Saturday's Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association football championships at Towson University, a collection box will be set up for socks and football cleats that will be donated to children in Kenya. The collection is being coordinated by two brothers on the St. Paul's football team -- junior linebacker Keifer Rawlings and freshman quarterback Kurt Rawlings. The boys are asking for socks and cleats size 8 or smaller for the orphans in Kenya. Keifer was featured in a Baltimore Sun article earlier this year as part of a Fellowship of Christian Athletes mission trip to the African country . The Crusaders are playing in the B Conference championship game against John Carroll at noon.

SENSITIVE SOULS mark the approaching end of summer by noting subtle changes in foliage.Not me. As a beleaguered parent, I sense that summer is almost over when I find myself in the shoe section of a sporting-goods store, getting ready for the changing of the cleats. This is a seasonal ritual in which a parent shells out money for yet another pair of cleats -- athletic shoes worn by his sports-playing offspring.This time of year, the cleats being purchased are for football or soccer players.

7 p.m. [NFL Network, ESPN] The NFL Network makes the official unveiling of the regular-season schedule for 2009, but ESPN will be jumping right in like Ray Lewis on a gang tackle - because nothing having to do with the NFL can exist without being analyzed until the issue is pounded into the ground as if it were under Albert Haynesworth's cleats.

THERE THEY sat. A sporting relic in a small glass box. The pair of crumpled, black, high-top cleats Johnny Unitas wore during his last game as a Baltimore Colt. Someone had left them on a table in the press box hours before the NFL's greatest quarterback was honored in a pre-game ceremony at Ravens Stadium yesterday. The sight of those cleats was enough to send a chill down your spine. At least mine, anyway. Everyone talks about that "Golden Arm," but that arm was only as good as Unitas' iron will, his competitive fire, his radar read of the defense and, yes, the feet.

DEAR CAL -- We have four very active children, all under 13. The cost of keeping them equipped for sports is pretty substantial. We've generally gone to a used-equipment store for things like gloves, bats, cleats and helmets. But now our oldest, our son who is 12, is getting very self-conscious about using used gear and wants us to buy him new stuff. My first question - at this level (still in youth leagues), is there much difference in quality between new and used equipment? My second question - how do we explain to him, and to our other kids, that buying new equipment for everyone is simply too expensive for us?

Under Armour will compete against Reebok and Nike on the sports world's most visible playing field this fall after signing a six-year, $50 million deal with the NFL to outfit its players with cleats. Under the agreement announced yesterday, Under Armour becomes one of just three companies that pay the National Football League to be an authorized supplier of shoes players wear during games. Players can wear any brand of footwear they want, but must cover the logos of other companies. It is the Baltimore company's most significant marketing deal yet. The company has relied mostly on cutting-edge television commercials, college team endorsements and a grass-roots following of fans to promote its products.

Before I get down to the nitty gritty, let me say that I fully agree with The Aegis' sports editor Randy McRoberts, who voiced his distaste in Wednesday's paper on how the MPSSAA decided to move Class 2A teams into the 1A field hockey tournament in order to better fill out the brackets. That move does not sit well with me, and if I were a coach or player on the Havre de Grace, Perryville or Bohemia Manor teams, which are the only true 1A schools playing in the North bracket, I'd write a strongly worded letter to the powers that be. I am not trashing the efforts of the MPSSAA, which, like every scholastic athletic association in the country has a tough, thankless job, and I appreciate the work it puts forth (seriously, in four-plus years of trying to pick fights with various people, teams, organizations, coaches, etc. with this column, the only time I ever wrote anything bad about the MPSSAA was after some goon with a walkie talkie tried to beat me up for attempting to do an on-field interview with Fallston's Caitlin Dempsey, after she scored a double-overtime goal in the Cougars' 1-0 victory over Bethesda-Chevy Chase in the 2007 Class 3A state title game)

The Baltimore Orioles may not be destined for the World Series this year, but you can be assured that a piece of the Baltimore area will be there. The announcement this week by Under Armour that it's reached a performance footwear deal with Major League Baseball should be officially scored another home run for the Maryland-based company. Not that too many people are surprised by Under Armour's continued success. But to many of us, the company has long seemed more closely affiliated with the rough and tumble of football and the NFL than the nation's more pastoral sports pastime.

Orioles left fielder Felix Pie's cleats are going to Cooperstown. And he hopes to visit them this offseason as part of the Baseball Hall of Fame's exhibit on players hitting for the cycle. "I'm excited, happy. I never knew that anything was going to happen in my life like that," said Pie, who has not stepped foot in the Hall of Fame. "I'll go check it out this year." On Friday night, Pie became the fourth player in franchise history - and the seventh major leaguer this season - to hit for the cycle, joining teammate Aubrey Huff and Orioles Hall of Famers Brooks Robinson and Cal Ripken Jr. Pie, who has played sparingly this season, doubled in the first, homered in the third and singled and tripled in the seventh.

Steve McNair played it right out of the Superstar Retirement Handbook. He said the right things. He did it the right way. He retired on his own terms and - best of all - walked off into the sunset without a noticeable limp. There certainly is room to wonder whether there is more to the story than McNair and Ravens officials let on during his farewell news conference yesterday at the Castle, but it didn't really matter because it was - regardless of any internecine intrigue - the right decision for all concerned.

MY SON COMMITTED THIS past spring to play college baseball. He chose the school he signed with primarily because he really liked the coach who recruited him. We turned down several other schools that also offered scholarships because we liked this coach so much. Recently we found out this coach is leaving to take a job at another school. I know coaches leave and I know they make moves for their family. I am all for putting family first, but this has left my son in a terrible situation. At this late stage, what do we do?
