The Laurel Football Association failed to win reinstatement into Anne Arundel County's youth football league last night, months after being banned for allegedly falsifying documents so that ineligible children could play. The county's Department of Recreation and Parks threw the association out of its league in January, saying that association board members, coaches, parents and players had repeatedly falsified documents over the past two seasons. Last night, the five-member county Board of Appeals issued the equivalent of a rainout - if there were such a thing in football.

Johns Hopkins isn't the only area Division III program with an untarnished record in 2014. Stevenson is 4-0 overall and 3-0 in the Middle Atlantic Conference and earned votes in the latest American Football Coaches Association poll. It's the first time the program has won its first four games of the season, and the team has already matched single-season records in overall victories and league wins set last year. Considering that the Mustangs were 8-22 overall and 6-20 in the conference, the current run might be shocking to some, but not to coach Ed Hottle.

Imagine a pro football team without holdouts, agents, egotistical owners and multimillion-dollar salaries. Now imagine a league in which one of the teams has to forfeit its season because most of its players are members of the armed forces and had to go fight a war in Iraq. Welcome to the National Women's Football Association and the Baltimore Burn, where players actually play for free and game plans are implemented via e-mail and on team buses. The women's game will never reach the popularity of its male counterpart, but it seems to have planted some roots in America.

Rich Daniel knows the world may not be ready for the football team he manages. "There are people in this world that are still skeptical of women in certain roles, occupations and adventures in life," he said. As general manager of the D.C. Divas, Washington's National Women's Football Association team, he certainly doesn't buy into the skepticism. "I've never been around a harder working bunch of football players," Daniel said.

It can't exactly be called divine intervention that got Howard County's newest youth football program up and running, though the Warriors did get financial and moral support from Columbia Community Church. "Churches explore all ways to reach out to youth," said the pastor, the Rev. Reginald Elliott. "The impact we're trying to have is to provide a wholesome activity for young people and at the same time expose them to the influence of adults and mentors. "We introduce them to the fact that church life involves more than coming to Sunday school or reading the Bible.

Head coach Fred Brooks thought they'd be a .500 team. Assistant Ed Sanford pegged them a couple of notches below his team of a year ago.Nobody, not even the coaches, expected this year's 11-13 Columbia Bulldogs to be much of a force on the football field. Some questioned their conditioning, others their desire.Three months later, the Bulldogs answered, completing an undefeated season with a win over Lacey, N.J., in the Pop Warner Mid-Atlantic championship game.For a program that doesn't recruit athletes, unlike many of its opponents, the win was the culmination of a storybook season for Brooks, Sanford and assistant Joe Bross.
