Ryley Beaumont grew up in Millersville, participating in football, lacrosse and basketball. But when he was young he broke his hand playing football — just before the start of basketball season with a Severna Park youth program. "That ruined his basketball season," said his father, Russ, who played hoops at Southern High in Baltimore and has taught at Marley Middle School in Glen Burnie for nearly 30 years. As a boy, Beaumont was able to shoot baskets in Anne Arundel gyms since his father could usually get a key, thanks to his teaching job. "He did push-ups.

The Ravens waited until the seventh round to draft Elon wide receiver Aaron Mellette on Saturday evening. But the wait felt much, much longer to Mellette, who some analysts believed would come off the board earlier in the draft's final day. Soon after the Ravens called his name, though, Mellette was already thinking about what he will need to do to make the jump from the small-school Phoenix to the Super Bowl champion Ravens. “I've just got to come in and learn the playbook and figure out new ways to get open because what we did in college is more than likely not going to work in the NFL,” Mellette said Saturday evening on a conference call.

Maryland football Report: QB Smith leaves Terps for Elon after freshman year Maryland's quarterback depth chart got a little bit thinner after spring practice. The Times-News of Burlington, N.C., reported Sunday that Tyler Smith , who redshirted last fall as a freshman for the Terps, is transferring to Elon. Bret Comp , Smith's coach at Wilson Area High in Easton, Pa., told the Times-News that Smith considered Elon and two other programs: Delaware, a perennial powerhouse in the Football Championship Subdivision, the same level in which Elon plays, and Division II Millersville (Pa.)

ELON, N.C. -- In the first half of last night's game against Elon, Towson played like a team trying to convince people it deserved more than nine votes in the Division I-AA poll. But the second half showed that the Tigers may have a little work left to do, as they held off the Phoenix for a 24-17 non-conference victory at Elon's Rhodes Stadium. Towson quarterback Sean Schaefer threw for 248 yards and one touchdown, Chris Desautels made a 23-yard field goal and three extra-point kicks, and Kerry Miles and Rasheed McClaude both ran for scores as the Tigers built a 21-point lead midway through the third quarter.

Towson wide receiver Jason Galloway did a little bit of everything for the Tigers yesterday in their 24-7 victory over Elon at Johnny Unitas Stadium. Galloway caught touchdown passes of 48 and 29 yards from quarterback Anthony Melzi, nearly caught another scoring pass, and finished with eight catches for a career-high 174 yards. Galloway (Old Mill) also returned two punts for 21 yards to account for 195 all-purpose yards. To top things off, he also held on the Tigers' field goals and place-kicks.

Maryland shook off an early offensive malaise to rout visiting Elon, 76-50, in a nonconference game at Comcast Center last night. For the first seven minutes, the Terps (10-2) looked ripe for the type of upset that haunted them last December as Elon (4-5), of the Southern Conference, appeared confident in building a 10-6 lead. But after a three-pointer by the Phoenix's T.J. Douglas gave Elon that four-point cushion, which turned out to be its biggest lead of the night, Maryland coach Gary Williams, clearly unhappy, took a timeout to refocus his club, and the Terps responded by pulling away for a 36-23 halftime lead.

JERUSALEM - It was no secret that Benny Elon was going to vote against the Israeli prime minister's Cabinet resolution to evacuate Jewish settlements in the Gaza Strip. And it was no secret that the prime minister was going to fire him for it. What really galls Elon, an ultra-nationalist who believes that giving up land in the Palestinian territories will lead to Israel's destruction, is that he was dismissed before he could cast a ballot. Prime Minister Ariel Sharon fired Elon this month to ensure a Cabinet majority for his disengagement plan.

Gary Williams surely knew there would be uncomfortable stretches like this. With his senior guards having graduated, the Maryland coach must have foreseen nights when his new backcourt would struggle and the home crowd would grow fidgety as an underdog opponent threatened to ruin the Terps' evening. One of those anxiety-producing periods occurred Friday night as undersized Elon used 3-pointers to take a halftime lead before succumbing to Maryland's size and athleticism in a 76-57 Terrapins victory.

Quality geriatric patient care is possible I read with great interest the article by Larry Carson in last Sunday's Baltimore Sun that highlighted the failed geriatric practice run by Rebecca Elon and sponsored by Erickson Health. I too am a geriatric physician. I agree with Dr. Elon and so many other voices who warn that our medical system is unsustainable as long as it continues to reward physicians who perform expensive tests and procedures so disproportionately more than primary care physicians who take care of patients and actually save the system money.

Trying to provide medical care for the elderly is what Dr. Rebecca Elon calls "government-induced market failure," since low federal Medicare payments ensure a geriatric practice will lose money on every patient. With primary care doctors fading away and medical costs rising while insurance payments don't keep pace, it's time for patients and doctors to try something like a patient-owned, nonprofit geriatric practice, without waiting for the federal government to act, Elon said. A geriatric practice with two doctors and one nurse practitioner would have minimum operating expenses of about $500,000 a year, she said, while revenues would likely be only $400,000.
