Dunbar has a solid resume' to fall back on when it comes to winning. Unfortunately for the Poets, they met someone Friday with a track record just as good. In playing Mansfield (Mass.) High, the No. 6 Poets were up against the owners of six Massachusetts Division 2 state titles. Dunbar rallied from a 14-point deficit late in the third quarter to take a lead, only to lose to Mansfield on a 29-yard touchdown pass with 17 seconds left, 29-26. "We put ourselves in that position," said Poets coach Lawrence Smith.

Hereford football coach Steve Turnbaugh didn't mind dropping from Class 3A to 2A this fall. His Bulls get away from their toughest Baltimore County rivals, Franklin and Milford Mill, but that doesn't exactly clear their path to the state tournament. "We jump to Class 2A North and there's Dunbar," Turnbaugh said. "Looking at their history and their talent, they just reload. If you're a legitimate state contender, you're going to see Dunbar somewhere along the way, and I've never seen Dunbar play.

Despite a 6-foot-2, 220-pound frame, Morgan State outside linebacker Christopher Robinson was a novice in the weight room during his first year at the university, and that inexperience showed during a session with Josh Bush, the strength and conditioning coach. "One time, he had to correct me because I was doing it in the wrong fashion. I was truly eager to get into the weight room," Robinson recalled.

Daxter Miles wasn't planning on making his college commitment Friday night. But the Dunbar senior had a sudden change of heart during his high school graduation three days ago. “I decided [to end my recruitment] because it was a big event in my life, with me and my family, so why not keep it going and commit on my graduation?” said Miles, who pledged to West Virginia. “I wasn't planning to at first. Everything hit me though, and I thought about it real heavy.” Miles, who also considered offers from Kansas State, Oklahoma State, Villanova and Xavier, said the Mountaineers have been recruiting him since the beginning of his senior year, shortly after he transferred to Dunbar from IMG Academy in Florida.
