Senior Mike Antinozzi has built an impressive resume in the classroom and on the playing fields at Fallston, where he has maintained a 3.8 grade-point average and excelled in lacrosse and soccer. There's one final thing he would like to accomplish before he graduates in June — winning a state title. Antinozzi, four-year varsity midfielder in lacrosse, and the Cougars fell short in the title game in his freshman year and haven't been back. The past two years in soccer — he led the team in scoring this fall — the team made back-to-back state title-game appearances only to lose on penalty kicks and then in overtime.

When Mike Leiter practices archery at the Harford Bowmen club at Susquehanna State Park, it might not appear he is having fun. Leiter, one of the most successful archers in the country, is a quiet person, especially when practicing. Each shot, even when he's not at the club and is just practicing at his home in Fallston, is a slow process. He draws the bow back deliberately and takes several seconds to line up his shot. After the release, Leiter's stoic face doesn't change, even if he knows it was a bull's-eye.

Like most children, Steve Mull loved Disney movies when he was little. But for the Fallston native, the appeal wasn't just the songs or the stories - he loved the movie posters.  As a little boy, he drew those images over and over. At the time, he thought he was just having fun. But as it turns out, he was teaching himself to be an artist. Today, Mull, who still lives in Fallston, now with his wife, Liz, and their 2-year-old son, Charlie, works with simple tools - markers and paper - to create fun, colorful depictions of Baltimore icons, from Ray Lewis to crabs and cans of Natty Boh. He sells both originals and prints via his website and occasionally at local shows, like the Gunpowder River ArtFest at Boordy Vineyards.

The rain had begun to fall harder, so Anthony Sadleo figured he'd stop and see his buddy Keith Matthews in Matthews' small auto-detailing shop off Belair Road.

That's how Bel Air coach Scoop Kelly celebrated a big goal, his passion for lacrosse and for his beloved program on full display in a sudden burst of excitement.
