Calling yourself a leader is not the same as being one. According to Census Bureau computer modeling, Baltimore if the hole in the doughnut of Central Maryland. You may take the University System of Maryland out of politics but you can't get politics out of the University System of Maryland.

"It's a blessing," said McPhearson, who lives in Columbia and just finished his senior year at Riverdale Baptist School in Prince George's County.

Matt Tilley hasn't had much free time outside of practice this year. In fact, Gilman baseball coach Larry Sheets said the senior has taken just two days off since August -- both between the football and basketball seasons and none between the basketball and baseball seasons. Such is the life of a three-sport athlete. And he hasn't just participated in football, basketball and baseball -- he has excelled in all three. He played wide receiver and free safety for the Gilman football team that won the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference last fall, served as captain for the basketball team that was one win away from winning its second consecutive MIAA B Conference title in the winter and stars all over the field for the No. 10 Greyhounds in baseball.

Try to imagine it: a Sunday afternoon in late September, and not one so far away that it feels like a fantasy. Another sweltering Baltimore summer has dissipated, and in the cool autumn breeze you can smell fresh grass and meat on the grill. You're full of nervous energy because, as is the case today back in real life, it's the day of the Ravens home opener at M&T Bank Stadium. Maybe you're even heading to the stadium, ready to tailgate.

John O'Neill would have made the perfect poster boy for Towson State football in 1990.The Tigers relied on an abundance of rookies last year, and while O'Neill had distinguished himself as a defensive back in 1989, he was a first-year starter on the other side of the ball, lining up at fullback.Towson State was additionally plagued by injuries, as knee surgery alone ended the seasons of five players. O'Neill tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in the first game, shortly after the Tigers had come out of their halftime meeting at Rhode Island, and his seasonal totals stayed at six carries for 26 yards.
