After faring well in his first NFL start last week, Ravens left tackle James Hurst acknowledged that Sunday's game against the Colts will provide a different challenge because of the communication issues that traditionally come into play for an offensive line on the road. Hurst, though, takes some comfort in that he'll be quite familiar with his surroundings. The undrafted free agent, who made the team out of training camp and then was elevated into a starting role when Eugene Monroe had knee surgery, grew up in Plainfield, Ind., and has attended “countless” games at Lucas Oil Stadium.

When Baltimore city schools and the Maryland Stadium Authority adopted a plan to update the city's aging school buildings in January 2013, they hoped to rebuild or restore 30 to 35 schools in the first phase of renovations. But studies to identify the schools' needs determined that the $977 million in bond funding the system expects to receive would cover only 23 to 28 schools. The city school commissioners at their board meeting Tuesday night reviewed a hotly contested recommendation to defer renovations to some of Baltimore's most dilapidated schools because they would be the costliest to renovate.

A four-year starter, Catonsville's All-Metro first-team forward Jennifer Nonn enjoyed a banner junior season with the exception of one thing - it's end. She scored 21 goals and added 10 assists to help lead the No. 5 Comets to their first Class 4A state title game, but they fell to Whitman, 2-0. For Nonn, it was tough to take then, but motivating now. The Comets have a number of players back to make another run under first-year coach Gary Lynch,...

The Orioles recently joined a growing number of teams to institute additional security procedures to prepare for Major League Baseball's requirements at the beginning of next season. While the added measures currently are in effect at some entrances to Camden Yards, MLB has mandated that all 30 ballparks develop a screening program before Opening Day in April. "The safety of our guests is of the utmost importance to the ballclub. As such, the Orioles are cooperating with Major League Baseball's efforts to implement enhanced security measures at all ballparks," Orioles vice president of communications Greg Bader said in a statement.

Archbishop Curley coach Barry Stitz had a long talk with his son, Ben, just prior to varsity tryouts this summer. Stitz had to explain that as the coach's son, Ben was inevitably going to be "under a microscope. " After coaching his son for Fewster F.C., a club team, the coach knew his son, a freshman, had the tactical ability to be a varsity player. The challenge would be the physical rigors of the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference, competing against players three or even four years older and carrying the same last name as the guy in charge.

The NFL will experiment with a potential rule change involving extra points in the first two weeks of the preseason. The ball will be moved from the 2-yard line to the 15-yard line, making an extra point the equivalent of a 33-yard field goal. Ravens Pro Bowl kicker Justin Tucker said he's interested to see how the change works out but made it clear that he's not a fan of adding to the length of extra points. “I don't think it's really going to change anything that we do aside from just practicing, just the visual of seeing an extra point from a little further back,” Tucker said.

The Orioles and Nationals gave local fans a good opening game and, dare I say it, might have played a game worthy of an actual rivalry Monday night. Here are the highlights in the Coffee Companion, where we recap the previous day's sports headlines. - The Orioles' stars - Chris Davis, J.J. Hardy, and Manny Machado - homered in the 11th inning to give the Orioles an 8-2, extra-inning win over the Washington Nationals. The homers were made possible when Buck Showalter intentionally walked Bryce Harper to put two on in the ninth before Darren O'Day, who threw a career high in pitches , struck out the next two batters to send it to extras.

Orioles starting pitcher Daniel Cabrera spent the first two weeks of spring training taking extra PFP, an acronym for pitcher's fielding practice. And if manager Dave Trembley has his way, Cabrera will probably spend the last week of workouts doing the same thing. Cabrera, who has always had a hard time fielding his position, struggled mightily yesterday in the Orioles' 3-1 loss to the Minnesota Twins, probably costing himself three runs because of his inability to make a routine play.
