Ordinarily, the programs in the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's annual Summer MusicFest are imaginatively put together by artistic director Mario Venzago with a particular theme in mind; each piece complements the overall idea. During Wednesday's penultimate offering in this year's fest, I was reminded of his amusing comment on opening night a few weeks back about how he didn't always remember what the theme was by the time the concert came along. Maybe he really wasn't kidding. I couldn't readily detect any connections between the works this time, but, hey, who needs a theme, anyway?

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.

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 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.

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.

Gilman's Darius Jennings will not be able to play in tonight's Under Armour All-America Game because of lingering effects from a concussion he received in last week's Chesapeake Bowl all-star game. The Baltimore Sun's Offensive Player of the Year is in St. Petersburg, Fla. this week for the game, but because he still had a headache when he arrived in Florida Friday, Jennings said, doctors would not clear him. Jennings said he suffered the concussion after being tackled on a sweep in Thursday night's Chesapeake Bowl at Towson University's Johnny Unitas Stadium in which he played quarterback and wide receiver.
