Under Armour's newest football commercial begins with high school players rushing to a practice field set beneath the Baltimore skyline. Some carry their gear through subway turnstiles. Others pedal furiously on bikes. A few jump into the bed of a pickup truck that halts just long enough for them to settle in for the ride. Ray Lewis, the retired Ravens linebacker, suggested that last scene based on his own memories of finding his way to practice long before he thought about a pro career that ended this year with a Super Bowl championship.

Eddie Rivers, a 6-foot-3 senior guard, is hoping to play at Edmondson, and Shamar Bass, a 6-2 junior guard, wants to play at Walbrook.

Off to a 5-0 start, Maryland is the unanimous top-ranked team in Division I, leads the nation in offense with an average of 16 goals, and trails only Hofstra as the stingiest defense in the country after allowing just 6.8 goals per game . But this season's success - which includes a 12-10 defeat of reigning national champion Loyola, which knocked off the Terps in last year's NCAA tournament final - could worm its way into the players' egos,...

Thanks for Kevin Cowherd 's recent column on Cam Cameron ("Finishing just shy of Super Bowl is no reason to can Cameron," Jan. 27). Every week our family looked forward to watching the Ravens. Their fantastic playing was due to teamwork among the coaches and players. We are sad to be losing Chuck Pagano; the Ravens were right not to let Mr. Cameron go as well. The Ravens had an outstanding year. To keep it going next year we need to keep Mr. Cameron as our offensive coordinator.

I went out scouting around for a high school soccer practice last week. There were none. I knew there wouldn't be.For the first time since the high school soccer program began in the early 1970s, soccer practice failed to start Aug. 15.The school system of one of the richest counties in the United States claims that budgetary constraints forced a cutback in pay for soccer coaches, delaying the soccer season one week.Varsity soccer coaches were the only varsity coaches whose pay was cut, since only football and soccer coaches were being paid for two weeks of summer practice.

North Carolina guard Tonya Sampson has been told she "plays like a guy."Some women's basketball players might take that as an insult, but Sampson wears the phrase as a badge of honor. Her game, going back to her childhood days on the playgrounds of Clinton, N.C., as the only girl to play with her neighborhood "posse," always has been about power, speed and strength."A lot of guys tried to take advantage of me. They would say, 'Oh, we can run over her.' My friends would say, 'You can do that if you want to. You'll get something you don't want,' " said Sampson.

In the spring of 1995, a handful of parents in Aptos, Calif., a small town south of San Francisco, entrusted their 5-year-old boys to the tutelage of a baseball coach named Dave Anderson. Seven years later, those kids had matured into one of America's finest Little League teams. In a new PBS documentary, Small Ball: A Little League Story, (tonight at 8 on MPT), filmmakers Louis Alvarez and Andrew Kolker do more than follow the Aptos All-Stars through their 2002 season, a nail-biting campaign that took them to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa. They remind viewers of the national pastime's almost endless capacity to bring out the best in those who play it, teach it and treat it with respect.

The refrain began soon after the Ravens left the field on Sunday with a decisive playoff win in hand. Defensive coordinator Rex Ryan was only too happy to nudge it along. "Nobody has respected this team until right now, and that's fine with us," Ryan said. "Tough on everybody else, just right for us." Respect is a motivational tactic as old as sport itself. Coaches and players portray themselves as unwanted, overlooked and underpraised. Around every corner lurks another rival ready to steal credit.

Just three years after he quit playing football, Jason Garrett stood near the pinnacle of his next chosen profession. He had the chance to increase his salary, to work with bosses who draft Pro Bowl players in droves and, most importantly, to run his own team. So why did Garrett turn down the Ravens' coaching job yesterday morning? And, more generally, why would anyone turn down the opportunity to become a head coach in the NFL, the nation's most popular professional sports league? Agents and former NFL executives listed several reasons that could lead a coach to refuse an offer.

Ask baseball players about the change in attitudes among some umpires, and they'll recoil as if they've just been brushed back by a 98-mph fastball. And they're hesitant to step back in the box. Nobody wants to carry an umpire's grudges into spring training. Their hands are full with all their gear. But it has become a hot topic in clubhouses, dugouts and closed-door offices around the majors. Orioles manager Dave Trembley received a three-game suspension this month for a tirade that concluded with him mimicking a gesture of throwing out umpire Paul Emmel.

Mike Williams probably has seen more game tape this week than in all his years as a coach, and it's still not enough for Williams, Howard County's athletics coordinator, to render a final judgment on what happened at the Centennial-Oakland Mills football game last Friday. That's why no punishment has been decided on in conjunction with the incident. And Williams said, there may not be one, as the stories that have emerged from nearly six days of questioning have conflicted. "No matter what we do as a system, there's going to be somebody who doesn't like it [the prospective decision]

I'd like to see each school be responsible for running its own program, and I'd like to see the kids enjoy themselves more because they only have four years. It's not like the pros where you have 11 years or more."Kenny Cooper, Baltimore Blast coach: "Sellout crowds with standing room only."

Competing as a varsity football program for the first time, Marriotts Ridge has struggled this season. As players have tried to adjust to the speed of the game and learn a new system playing against more-seasoned opponents, the Mustangs have gone 1-7 in a highly competitive league that includes the metro area's top-ranked team, River Hill. However, one of the bright spots for the team this season has been junior quarterback Kevin Seker, who has maintained a presence in the pocket and emerged as a team leader.
