Towson running back Darius Victor had a front-row seat to the scintillating runs that Terrance West made last year during the team's march to the Football Championship Subdivision national championship game. And one of the things Victor, then a freshman, admired was West's patience. "Last year, I rushed to the hole sometimes," Victor recalled. "I made a couple good plays, but I rushed some things. Terrance had great patience. He would tell me, 'Little bro, did you see that?' Everything he did, he would tell me, and that's why I love him so much.

As the backup to junior Terrance West, he of highlight reel runs, Towson freshman running back Darius Victor has the unenviable task of getting his blood flowing in pre-game warmups before dialing it back down and waiting on the sideline for his turn. But Victor said he does not mind entering a game cold. "Coach [Reno] Ferri [who coaches the running backs] always has me ready to go on the sideline,” Victor said. “Every session, he's like, 'You warmed up? You warmed up?' So that's not a problem.

Now that they've had a No. 1 album with "Cracked Rear View," a Top-10 single with "Let Her Cry," and have become a staple of VH1 and MTV, life is different for the guys in Hootie & the Blowfish.People recognize them, for one thing. "It's nothing too crazy, like where we don't go out in public or anything," says drummer Jim "Soni" Sonefeld, over the phone from the band's home base in Columbia, S.C. "But when we walk around as a foursome, I think we've been recognized almost everywhere in America."

With much pomp and circumstance, they held a commencement yesterday at Gateway School in Northwest Baltimore. And for only three graduates. The pomp: robes and mortarboards, processions and recessions, songs and honors for the graduates, camera-toting parents, balloons, more than a few tears of joy. The circumstance: One graduate, Darius Roberts, 10, was honored for having learned to control his emotions and to read a few words. Kevin Thomas, 11, was praised for overcoming the turmoil of a rare disorder that causes him to eat compulsively.

Some famous musicians were playing slightly different tunes in B-more last weekend. Let's start with Darius Rucker. You may know him better as the lead singer of Hootie & the Blowfish. Darius and his new band put on a benefit concert at the Lyric Opera House, celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Carson Scholars Fund. The music was certainly a flash from the past, but not from Darius' own history. Instead of performing the hits that made him famous, he and his band took on Sinatra. And, from what we hear, they did "Ol' Blue Eyes" proud.

An 11-month-old baby has died of a heroin overdose, and his mother has been charged with second-degree murder - the second death this year in Baltimore of a baby who ingested the narcotic. Darius Key was found not breathing Sept. 8 at his home in the 200 block of S. Gilmor St. This week, the state medical examiner ruled his death a homicide by "narcotic intoxication," Baltimore police said. Yesterday morning, police charged the boy's mother, Georgianna Key, 23, in the death. In June, a 9-month-old boy died of a heroin overdose in West Baltimore and detectives charged his great-aunt and her boyfriend with second-degree murder after the medical examiner ruled the death a homicide.

Junior running back Terrance West has become the face of the offense for the Towson football team. Of course, that's easy to do when you lead the Football Championship Subdivision in both rushing yards (1,130) and rushing touchdowns (19). But the No. 8 Tigers (7-1 overall and 3-1 in the Colonial Athletic Association) are proving that they are more than just a one-horse engine at running back. Freshman Darius Victor has carried the ball 31 times for 217 yards and four touchdowns.

As a 165-pound sophomore cornerback last season, Darius Johnson didn't back down against Archbishop Curley's 280-pound senior running back in a November game. After the Friars' Nik D'Avanzo - an All-Metro first-team selection at defensive tackle last season - took each handoff, a blitzing Johnson hit him in the gap. “He made that kid go backwards,” Crusaders defensive coordinator Keith Rawlings said about Johnson's tackles. St. Paul's won the game, 32-7. Hoping to continue his football career in college, Johnson has approached this summer with a similar tenacity.

The senior guard, a four-year varsity player and three-year starter, saved his absolute best for the final second of his high school career. Walker beat the buzzer with a driving layup in Saturday's Class 2A state championship game to give the Red Storm (22-5) a 56-54 win over Wicomico for the program's first title. Walker, an All-Metro first-team selection as a junior, finished the title game with 15 points, eight rebounds, six assists and four steals. In the team's 60-56 semifinal win over Oakdale, from Frederick County, on Friday, Walker had similar heroics in the second overtime.

Edmondson guard Darius Walker learned from something that happened earlier this season, and that lesson helped the Red Storm win its first state title Saturday night. Walker snaked through traffic and made a driving left-handed bank shot as time expired to give No. 5 Edmondson a 56-54 victory over Wicomico in the Class 2A state title game at the University of Maryland's Comcast Center, the school's first championship in basketball. Fresh in Walker's mind was his choice at the end of regulation in the Baltimore City title game against No. 1 Dunbar last month.

If you first don't succeed, try again. And then, if needed, try yet again. The Edmondson boys basketball had the final possession at the end of regulation and again in the first overtime with the score tied against Oakdale, from Frederick County, but the No. 5 Red Storm was unable to convert the needed points that would send it to the Class 2A state title game. In the same spot in the second overtime, Edmondson senior guard Darius Walker changed the plan. Once again appearing to hold the ball for the final shot, Walker attacked the basket earlier than expected, hitting a running layup with 31 seconds left to give the Red Storm a two-point lead.

When someone has coached for as long as Gilman's Biff Poggi, it becomes difficult to remember the finer details of past games. But he still remembers the moments. Like when Poggi and his Greyhounds found themselves in a "tough situation" locked in a close game a few years ago. The coach recalls becoming overexcited and focusing too much on the outcome of the game. While he may not remember what year the game was or which team Gilman was playing, he can recall a player approaching him. "He comes up to me and says, 'Don't worry, Coach.
