Sherrod Hawkes and his Patterson teammates tried not to let it dominate their thoughts leading up to Saturday's Class 2A North regional semifinal football game at Randallstown, but they sure wanted the chance to see Dunbar next week. The Clippers wasted no time setting up another meeting with their Baltimore City rival, jumping out to a 24-point lead over the Rams in less than eight minutes and cruising to a 43-0 win. Hawkes ran for 203 yards on 10 carries and scored three touchdowns.

Friday's upsets cost Dunbar and River Hill their top 25 rankings in the Maryland High School Football Media State Poll for Week 9, which was released Wednesday. Dunbar fell from No. 15 after losing to Edmondson, 14-0, the Poets' first loss to a Maryland public school opponent in two years. River Hill dropped out from No. 17 after suffering its second loss in the past three weeks, 21-3 to Howard. Gilman remained No. 2 behind DeMatha, the unanimous pick for No. 1. McDonogh, with the best record in the state at 10-0, moved up a spot to No. 4 after the previous week's No. 4, Quince Orchard, was upset by Northwest, 35-21.

When coach Corey Johnson took over Edmondson's football team last summer, he thought the Red Storm's defense would be pretty good. Even he didn't expect it to be this good. The Red Storm has shut out five of its last six opponents including City, 44-0 last week, and No. 5 Dunbar, 14-0 Friday. The Poets had not been held scoreless in seven years - not since the last time Edmondson beat them, 12-0, on Oct. 6, 2006. That year, Edmondson went on to win the Class 2A state championship, its only state football title.

Nearly 30 years after they first met while living in the same East Baltimore housing project, and 20 years after they left Dunbar to play college basketball, Rodrick Harrison and Rodney Elliott are back in their hometown with a new dream. Harrison, the second-year coach at Mount Zion Prep, and Elliott, one of his assistants, are trying to give players who didn't have the grades or game coming out of high school a chance to do what they did. Harrison, who played at UMBC and was later an assistant coach at Dunbar, and Elliott, who played at Maryland before embarking on a 13-year professional career spent mostly in Europe, teamed last year with the Mount Zion Baptist Christian School in Northeast Baltimore to provide the academic support and basketball guidance for a dozen or so players each year.

Iakeem Alston left Baltimore last summer for a two-year stint in Wyoming, where he encountered cowboys, “two feet of snow” and the perfect situation for his basketball career. At Sheridan (Wyo.) College, the former Dunbar star played a major role as a freshman, starred at several junior-college showcases, and earned a handful of Division I scholarship offers. On Monday, Alston committed to St. Bonaventure, fulfilling his longstanding goal to play DI basketball somewhere on the East Coast.

During a decorated college career at West Virginia, Baltimore's Tavon Austin was tough to grab in the open field. Austin had 3,413 receiving yards in four years in Morgantown, W.Va., and much of the damage he did as a receiver came after the catch when the Mountaineers quickly got him the ball in space. Five games into his NFL career, though, the Dunbar graduate hasn't found that space as easily. The Rams, who traded up to select Austin eighth overall in April's NFL draft, have made an effort to get their top pick involved.

Dunbar quarterback William Crest knew his team needed a jolt Friday night when it trailed Patterson after the first quarter. The senior was happy to provide one. Crest tossed a perfect 31-yard pass that Jerrell Jenkins, in tight coverage, caught over his shoulder in the end zone. Less than a minute later, after an interception by Aaron Savage, Crest connected with Jenkins on almost the exact same play, this time for a 33-yard touchdown. The Clippers never recovered from that one-two punch, and No. 5 Dunbar rolled to a 42-6 victory in a Baltimore City Division I game on Military Appreciation Night at William F. "Sugar" Cain Field in East Baltimore.
