As the crowd filed into the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen to attend Art Donovan's funeral mass one man lingered on the church steps, a Baltimore Colts jersey on his back and his little dog, Max, at his side. “I live nearby and came to pay my respects,” said George Faber, 42. “Not many folks had the magnetism Artie had; I can count them on one hand. He just made you want to be around him, even when he's gone.” Nearly 800 people, including a number of his football teammates, gathered Friday to pay homage to Donovan, the Colts' Hall of Fame defensive tackle and raconteur who died Sunday, at 89, of a respiratory ailment.

The bond between Barney Ehrmann and Reggie Fugett began as 5-year-old Gilman first-graders - not long after they heard their names read aloud within seconds of each other during the roll call. "We were always in the same, all-day homeroom, and in a lot of the same classes over the next few years until we were in like fourth grade," said Fugett, 17, adding that he and Ehrmann often paired off during social events and down time around the kindergarten-through-12th grade, all-boys private school campus.

When John M. Rusnak was whisked into court last week, there were two people by his side: his lawyer and the Rev. Joe Ehrmann, a towering, white-haired man who has become a spiritual adviser to the currency trader at the center of one of the biggest banking scandals in history. Ehrmann was one of the first people Rusnak called after Allfirst Financial Inc. accused him of losing $691.2 million and then hiding the losses for five years. Rusnak, 37, who lives in Mount Washington with his wife and two children, is a religious man. As his case proceeds, Rusnak is finding comfort in religion and doing charitable works, friends and associates say. Ehrmann is best known as a former All-Pro defensive tackle with the Baltimore Colts and for his foundation, Building Men for Others, which helps disadvantaged youths and their families.

Life," a hippie sage once said, "is what happens while you're making other plans." By the time Jeffrey Marx was done writing his new book, Season of Life, about Gilman School football and two of its coaches, Joe Ehrmann and Biff Poggi, he must have understood Jerry Garcia's philosophy all too well. "I couldn't have foreseen all that happened in the making of this book," he says. "I'm not that talented. The chain of coincidences goes on and on. If this were fiction, I don't think anybody would believe it."

"She played at a high level throughout the year and led our late season resurgence that culminated in us playing for the league championship."

The stark contrast between Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A and B Conference football was never more evident than yesterday at Gilman. Defending A Conference tri-champ and No. 3 Gilman was victorious, 36-0, over St. Mary's, a B Conference title hopeful, in the season opener for both. With junior running back Jordan Love leading all rushers with 81 yards on 11 attempts, including the game's first touchdown from the 12-yard line, the host Greyhounds rolled up 185 yards on the ground.

He was a bearded, Bunyanesque defensive tackle whose rugged play helped the Baltimore Colts to three straight division championships in the 1970s. But Tuesday, when Joe Ehrmann addresses a national gathering convened to deal with the problem of child sexual abuse in sports, he'll take part in one of the most meaningful huddles of his life. His words will weigh heavily on the audience at the two-day Safe to Compete summit in Alexandria, Va., because Ehrmann - minister, motivational speaker and onetime Gilman coach - is himself a survivor of child sexual abuse.

Sports, Baltimore Colts great Joe Ehrmann believes, is not a game. It is too much a part of this country's social fabric, from Saturday morning soccer games to Super Bowl Sundays. It must have a higher purpose than simply to entertain. The striving of the athlete, Ehrmann says, must be equaled by the sober introspection of the men and women who coach them because of the power and influence those coaches carry — in the look on their faces or in the sound of their voices. "One of the great myths in America is that sports build character," Ehrmann writes in his new book, "InSideOut Coaching: How Sports Can Transform Lives.

The recent accusations aimed at the University of Miami's athletic department are just the latest example of moral failure involving educational institutions, athletics and athletes. Every scandal seems to debunk the myth that sports builds character. Instead, these stories reinforce the need for student-athletes to be taught right from wrong with the same diligence that they learn their playbooks. Sports — at every age and on every level — seem to have become the victim of a "win-at-all-cost" culture.

Considering the closely tied paths Barney Ehrmann and Dan Hostetler traveled the past four years, it doesn't seem strange that the Major League Lacrosse rookies wound up teammates on the Chesapeake Bayhawks. Ehrmann (Gilman) and Hostetler (River Hill) both played key roles on their football, basketball and lacrosse teams during high school. Both hail from families with strong ties to professional football. Both eschewed football and decided to play lacrosse in college.

Maybe you'd like to come down the hallway of the junior high school I attended - we called it the Intermediate School - to meet Mr. Gordon T. "Gordie" Ross, a barrel-chested man stuffed into a plaid sport coat, his thick neck trapped by the tab collar of a white shirt and striped tie. He's moon-jawed and pie-faced, with thick brown hair, and as serious as granite block about teaching biology to 7th graders, tolerating no foolishness from the wise...

When Salisbury "superback" Leroy Satchell carries the ball, stiff-arming his way to more than 7 yards a carry, it's almost as if he is running away from something. "When I'm out there, I'm into a zone," said Satchell, who grew up in the rough Park Heights section of Baltimore. "I always knew football was the one thing that could get me out of my situation." As a youngster, Satchell said he regularly witnessed drug activity and violence. "Being a kid, I didn't really know what to think or how to take it," said Satchell, a junior who is averaging 111.3 yards a game for the 7-0 Sea Gulls.

A week ago yesterday, Gilman's Kevin Carroll was somewhat dejected after a loss to league rival Loyola that ended a five-game winning streak. Since then, however, the senior attackman-midfielder has stepped up his game, as evidenced by yesterday's two-goal effort in a 6-1 Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference win over visiting Severn. Zach Bradley scored twice, and Kevin's twin, Brian, and David Marshall had one goal each for No. 3 Gilman (10-4, 6-2). "It's great to get back on the right foot," said Kevin Carroll, who had four goals and two assists in Friday's win over St. Mary's.

The universe — the one surrounding Max Ehrmann's poem "Desiderata" — is now unfolding as it should. With Thursday afternoon's dedication of the statue and plaza honoring the late poet, the center of the "Desiderata" universe shifted from Baltimore to the corner of Seventh and Wabash in Ehrmann's hometown. And folks in both cities couldn't be happier. With Ehrmann's descendants, guests and an estimated 600 other Terre Hauteans watching, sculptor Bill Wolfe and arts advocate Mary Kramer unveiled the lifesize, bronze likeness of the man who wrote one of the world's best-known poems.

COLLEGE PARK -The No. 3 Maryland men's lacrosse team's attack got a lot of ink in the preseason. Some of that attention should shift to No. 17 Georgetown's unit, which accounted for seven goals in the team's 13-10 upset of the Terps at Ludwig Field yesterday. Sophomores Ricky Mirabito and Ryan Schuler each recorded three goals and an assist, and junior Craig Dowd posted a goal and three assists for the Hoyas (1-0), who missed the NCAA tournament last spring for the first time in 12 years.
