On Sept. 25, 2004, Loyola High's Van Brooks suffered a broken neck and was paralyzed when his helmet collided with a knee while making a routine tackle. That day marked the end of his athletic career but led to a new passion: being a community leader. "The only thing I could rely on was my education," Brooks said. "Even with all that athletic ability gone, my education is something that couldn't be taken from me. " Now 26, he strives to emphasize the importance of schooling to children.

On the surface, Matt Hauser was an Army fan, wearing a black-and-camouflage jersey and rooting for the home team at the annual Army-Navy flag football matchup at Fort Meade. But like many Marylanders, he has deep respect for Navy, too. Lifting his Army jersey, he revealed a blue Navy jersey underneath. Even in flag football, Army-Navy is "a nice rivalry," said Hauser, a Severn insurance agent who helped organize a tailgate party for Thursday's game. But there's more to it, he said.

I spend over 500 hours every year working as a volunteer for Catonsville Recreation and Parks programs to provide our community's children with recreational opportunities. I object to your promotion of i9 flag football ("New flag football league puts the fun in fundamentals," Catonsville Times, Sept 21). The paper should promote community-based recreational activities, not private enterprises that profit from divisions in the community and from a lack of exposure to existing programs.

After his football team opened the 2011 season with a 40-17 win over Delaware last Saturday in Annapolis, Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo was beaming.

Larry Geber played basketball, golf and baseball in high school and, as he got older and wanted to stay in shape, the Andover resident, now 38, moved toward basketball and football. About 10 years ago, Geber said he got a phone call that changed his sports life. A flag-football team needed a quarterback for a Sunday-morning game and asked him to fill in. Geber enjoyed the game so much that he hooked up with friends to form a team, and about a month later, the Maryland Xtreme was born. The Xtreme was far from successful right away, though.

IN THIS sports-savvy county, where you can find someone, somewhere, interested in at least 70 variations of sports, the Department of Recreation and Parks has finally encountered one that is an apparent dud. That would be co-rec football - men and women playing flag football. The first advertisement went out during the winter, for a spring season, which the department quickly had to scotch because of staffing problems. But now the brochure is out for fall, with a nice, larger plug for co-rec football, and the result has been: Zip. "We haven't had any interest, yet," said a disappointed Nicola Morgal, the sports supervisor trying to get a league started for a game in which she competes in Baltimore - in a 60-team league, no less.

Whether it was who could make the best salad or who could dress the sharpest, Kendall, Kyle and Corey Fuller always wanted to be better than each other. Competition fueled the brothers from Baltimore when they were young, and it helped them in sports as they grew older. These intra-family battles may have led to childish fights and arguments, but it never separated the family. It only strengthened it. And when Kendall Fuller announced he would join his brothers in college by committing to Virginia Tech - becoming the fourth Fuller to play football for the Hokies - that family strength was reaffirmed.

Ed Reed isn't the only Baltimore safety making eyebrow-raising comments on talk radio this week . Strong safety Bernard Pollard, a man of strong opinions who is certainly not shy about sharing them, appeared on KILT in Houston to talk about the New Orleans Saints and their recent bounty scandal. Asked if he felt the league was marketing violence and condemning it at the same time, Pollard, the heaviest hitter in the Ravens secondary, said he understands that the NFL and commissioner Roger Goodell have a job to do, but he feels there are too many restrictions when it comes to physical play . “It's getting out of hand,” Pollard said.

For years, they've gathered every weekend on a grassy field in Dundalk to play tackle football. A gang of spirited, blue-collar twentysomethings, they shake hands, choose sides and, for three hours, wale the tar out of each other. So, when they heard about the first Baltimore Flag Football Festival on Saturday — an all-day, round-robin tournament at Pimlico Race Course promising $1,200 to the winner — the crew from Dundalk signed on. After all, how hard could the flag game be, once you're used to playing tackle?

A lineman at Mount Hebron High School in Howard County in the mid-1990s, Steve Shifflett never played football again until he was asked to come out for a flag football team three years ago. Now Shifflett, 28, and football are together again. The Glen Burnie resident plays flag football almost year-round, including in the Anne Arundel County Department of Recreation and Parks spring leagues. Among the 45 teams, Shifflett plays center on Duke's 1 (eight-man) and on the offensive line on Duke's 2 (four-man)

As soon as they tumbled out of Waterloo Elementary School and into the bright sunshine for recess last week, about 20 fourth-graders ran across a field, straight for Yon Fisher. Quickly, they collected their belts from him, some with red flags and some with yellow, and within moments, the flag football game had begun. By the time 10-year-old Ahmad Arafat arrived, the two teams of eight players each already were filled. He decided to stick around anyway to watch. He's been playing every day since school started, he said.

Bernard Pollard's seeming form tackle in the third quarter of Monday's loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars not only cost the Ravens 15 yards, but it could cost the hard-hitting safety $10,000. That's how much Pollard was fined by the NFL today after his hit, which wasn't helmet-to-helmet, jarred the ball loose from Deji Karim in the third quarter Monday. Pollard was flagged for unnecessary roughness on the third-down play, prolonging the drive and leading to a Josh Scobee field goal and a 9-0 Jaguars' lead.

The girls played a game of flag football for charity (but really for a challenge) and had a "bitch fight" (Tyra's words, not mine) with a legit model. There were screams and blurred-out butt cracks, plus eliminated all-stars came back for all of two seconds. So, who got their ass kicked? Read on. SPOILERS AHEAD! Fierce football For this week's challenge, the ladies played a friendly (read: really harsh and painful-looking) game of flag football in two teams - red and blue - all in the name of charity and getting a fierce photo.
