Gilman defensive end Melvin Keihn started his Christmas celebration early Tuesday by committing to play football at Virginia Tech. A two-time All-Metro and two-time Consensus All-State selection, Keihn is rated a four-star prospect by Rivals.com. Last Thursday, he whittled his list of top schools down to Virginia Tech, Maryland and Virginia. He had cut to a final five, including Penn State and Miami, from more than 50 offers. The senior originally had planned to announce his decision at the Under Armour All-America Game in St. Petersburg, Fla., on Jan. 2, but last week said with a laugh that he couldn't stand it any longer and he wanted to decide by Christmas.

The Ravens had already lost starting tight end Dennis Pitta for the rest of the season with a hip injury and starting left tackle Eugene Monroe for about a month after he had knee surgery. Now, they know that they'll have to overcome the absence of two defensive starters for an extended period. A day after a 20-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium dropped his team to 3-2, Ravens coach John Harbaugh announced that starting defensive end Chris Canty had surgery to clean out an infection in his wrist and starting cornerback Asa Jackson is in a walking boot because of a "very severely" sprained toe. Jackson, who had started the past four games opposite the team's top cornerback, Jimmy Smith, will be out a "number of weeks," Harbaugh said.

Kenneth Goins Jr. Gilman, defensive end, senior Gilman's defense landed five players on the All-Metro first and second teams this fall, but no one gave opponents more trouble than Goins. Explosive off the line of scrimmage, he made quarterbacks think about him every time he burst off the left side of the line. "He's just relentless in his attack," Loyola coach Brian Abbott said. "A lot of times you see defensive linemen who are big and strong, but they're not fast.

Scouts from the Arizona Cardinals, Oakland Raiders and Philadelphia Eagles who attended Towson's Colonial Athletic Association opener with Maine Saturday night to gauge Ryan Delaire's talent were treated to a tantalizing display. The senior defensive end matched his season total of three sacks in the Tigers' 27-24 loss. He had sacks on back-to-back plays in the third quarter and lodged his final takedown later in the same period. After getting credited with 3½ tackles in the first half, Delaire posted his three sacks and another half tackle in the second half, which occurred after a halftime discussion with coach Rob Ambrose.

The anonymity Ryan Delaire once enjoyed may soon be over. That's what happens when you rank second in the Football Championship Subdivision in sacks, with 6 1/2. That's what happens when you get three sacks in a single quarter. And that's what happens when you cause a fumble a teammate then returns 43 yards for a touchdown in the final qaurter of a come-from-behind victory. So Delaire, a junior defensive end, can expect a lot of attention going forward, especially from No. 19 New Hampshire (1-2 overall, 0-0 Colonial Athletic Association)

Durrand Roundtree didn't get much notice at Lansdowne High, but Maryland was impressed enough by his potential to offer him a football scholarship.

ASHBURN, Va. - The Washington Redskins wrapped up the 2005 NFL draft with a cornerback they sorely needed, a quarterback who might be the starter of the future, and depth at fullback and linebacker. But the club might have made its biggest news of the weekend when it did not draft a play-making wide receiver or a pass-rushing defensive end. Cornerback, wide receiver and defensive end were believed to be the greatest needs for the team, which filled the void at cornerback by taking Auburn's Carlos Rogers with the ninth overall pick.

The Carolina Panthers' quick turnaround from the NFL's most disappointing team to one of the league's hottest shouldn't be a surprise when considering the face of their defense. Defensive end Julius Peppers is one of the most dynamic players in the game because his drive matches his athleticism. He puts relentless pressure on quarterbacks. He chases down running backs going from sideline to sideline. He even blocks field goals. "He's definitely up there with the greatest I've been around," said coach John Fox, whose Panthers (3-2)

As last week wore on, Keith Washington sensed his big chance was coming. As the soreness in starting right defensive end Michael McCrary's left knee persisted, Washington's practice time increased, while McCrary became a midweek spectator.And by yesterday's pre-game warm-ups, Washington knew he would be seeing considerable playing time in McCrary's place. What Washington could not know is how vital his contribution would be in the Ravens' 21-19 victory over Tennessee.Washington, who was signed Oct. 15 to add depth to the defensive line, made the Ravens look pretty smart all day by playing like a bona fide starter.

Maryland coach Randy Edsall stood outside the visiting locker room at the Carrier Dome on Saturday shortly after the Terps beat Syracuse. Edsall was happy about the win, which moved Maryland to 3-1 heading into next week's Big Ten opener at Indiana. But he also understands the difficult position the Terps are in defensively because of the amount of injuries Maryland has endured since the season began in late August. "We're going to have to have a lot more guys step up," Edsall said.

Now that the NFL and the NFL Players Association have implemented human growth hormone testing as part of a revised performance-enhancing drug policy, Ravens veteran defensive end Chris Canty is hoping that ensures a level playing field. As the Ravens' player union representative, Canty voted in favor of the policy. The changes include a suspension of four games without pay for a first violation, a 10-game suspension without pay for a second violation and a minimum two-year ban for a third violation.

COLLEGE PARK -- Two of Randy Edsall's primary concerns entering preseason practice remain two of the coach's top concerns as Maryland now gets ready to wrap up camp: Depth at cornerback and depth along the offensive line. “[Those are] probably the two positions I would like to have more depth,” Edsall said. At cornerback, the Terrapins have sophomore Will Likely, junior Alvin Hill and senior Jeremiah Johnson, a top three Edsall and defensive coordinator Brian Stewart have voiced confidence in. But the players behind those three lack experience.

For those who question whether Peter Boulware can play defensive end, the answer will come Sunday. That's when the experiment of moving the Ravens' Pro Bowl linebacker to a down lineman may ultimately be judged against the Pittsburgh Steelers and one of the most powerful offensive fronts in the league. Boulware had wanted for years to make this shift, but the Ravens' coaching staff considered the 6-foot-4, 248-pound linebacker too small to play full time on the defensive front. However, when starting ends Michael McCrary and Rob Burnett went down with injuries, the Ravens' necessity became Boulware's long-awaited opportunity.

Defensive end Adalius Thomas received an unexpected wake-up call yesterday. When Peter Boulware missed the morning practice to have X-rays on his strained neck, Thomas filled the void by playing outside linebacker with the starting group. Thomas, who is competing with Marques Douglas for the left defensive end job, will serve double duty as the fourth outside linebacker during the regular season. But with both starters -- Boulware and Cornell Brown (strained left hamstring) -- listed as day-to-day, Thomas jumped up the depth chart.

"It's a privilege and an honor to play in the Armed Forces Bowl, especially playing against the Navy," Rhodes said at Burleson Centennial High School, where his team is practicing.
