Jake Daft, playing his sixth season of organized football, never has played on a winning team.However, the Oakland Mills senior's unenviable streak soon is likely to end. And if the losing streak is broken, he'll play a large role in making it happen.Daft rushed for more yards last season than any other returning county player -- 733 on 100 carries. He also caught 15 passes for 206 yards and scored seven touchdowns.Although Oakland Mills' offensive backfield is deep with strong, speedy runners, Daft figures to get enough chances to meet or surpass those numbers this season.

Hot Fuzz pricelessly skewers big-budget Hollywood blow-'em-ups - especially ones with cops doubling as best buds - but shows a real affection for the genre even as it revels in its absurdities. And, as anyone who has ever seen Bad Boys or Bad Boys II knows, there are plenty. They're always in big cities, filled with gleaming skyscrapers and squalid slums. Things are blowing up. Everybody carries a gun. Women are relegated to the background. Hot Fuzz (Rogue Pictures) Starring Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Jim Broadbent.

Shares of Coca-Cola Co. fell yesterday after the giant soft-drink maker announced sweeping management changes in its effort to revive its beverage business. Under the direction of Douglas N. Daft, who took over as chairman and chief executive about a year ago, Coke will be divided into four business units. Jack L. Stahl, who had worked at Coke for two decades, has resigned as president and chief operating officer. The decision, announced Sunday, appeared to have been made suddenly. Recently, Stahl was among the executives who discussed Coke's plans with investors and analysts, and the company's proxy statement, which was issued Friday, made no mention of his resignation.

One American League scout recently spent a week watching the Orioles' top affiliate, the Ottawa Lynx. He came away thoroughly unimpressed. Only one player caught his eye: Veteran utility player Howie Clark. "Clark can hit. He is an interesting character," the scout said. "I like him because he works hard every day; he doesn't fool around." Clark, 32, is back with the Orioles. And that leaves the cupboard nearly bare in Ottawa, the scout said. He said first baseman Andy Tracy has enough raw power to be "an emergency call-up" this year and that left-hander Brian Burres "may have a shot" as a big league reliever.

On July 26, 1859, at 8 a.m., Baltimore entered the rapid transit age. At the foot of Broadway in Fells Point, a crowd gathered to watch the first horse-drawn streetcar pulled by eight stout gray horses go squealing over the rails toward downtown Baltimore.To a public that had long been used to bone-jarring journeys in horse-drawn omnibuses that bounced and rattled over cobblestoned streets, the horse car traveling over smooth rails was a marked and vast improvement in public transportation.

COCA COLA Co. says it must maintain the "competitive posture" of its executive pay, so last year it gave top boss Douglas N. Daft $55 million. The competitive posture of $55 million, of course, is ramrod, telephone-pole upright. The midshipmen on the Naval Academy parade ground are slouching, grubby hippies by comparison. Daft's package included a $3.5 million bonus and $48 million in performance-based stock grants. The Daft family was truly blessed, even though Coke's shares went down by a fifth last year.

OFFENSIVE TEAM AT A GLANCECO-PLAYERS OF THE YEAR* Jake Daft, Oakland Mills, RB, Sr. -- A strong, slashing runner with deceptive quickness, Daft (6-feet-1, 190 pounds) punished tacklers with his power.
