Loyola football coach Brian Abbott has stepped down after 10 years, four Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference titles and six Turkey Bowl victories. "I just think your internal clock tells you it's time," Abbott said. "My goal was never to be a coach that was a head coach for 30 years. There's a lot of opportunities out there and staying here at Loyola. I'm going to go back to grad school in the fall and just find new opportunities and be excited about the things that I can do. " Abbott, 45, will remain at the school, where he will continue to run the school's summer programs and the Blakefield Experience program as well as coach middle school lacrosse.

The Mavericks, however, were more interested in the milestone, presenting Mesaros a football with "100" written on it. "All the kids signed it, and they had a big announcement at the end of the game. The kids dumped water on me," Mesaros said with a laugh. "It was a very nice show of affection and respect. "The 100-win thing is great.

Johnny Brooks Aberdeen A year ago, Brooks coached Havre de Grace to the state Class 1A final. Then, looking for a change, he packed up his coaching staff and moved down U.S. 40 to take over a floundering Aberdeen program coming off a 1-9 season. "We knew what we were walking into," he said. "We didn't know the talent, but we knew we had a lot of work ahead of us. We got on them in the summertime about getting better and not having to be 1-9. … That kind of fueled some of them, and the senior captains really bought into it. They were out there in triple digits [temperatures]

Morgan State football coach Lee Hull has been seeing a little bit too much yellow for his liking. The Bears (2-2, 1-0 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) nipped league rival Howard, 38-35, on Saturday, but not without drawing 10 penalties costing them 104 yards. It marked the third time this season that Morgan State incurred more penalties than its opponent. The team is averaging 8.5 penalties per game for an average loss of 77.5 yards. “I'm real concerned because that shows a lack of focus and a lack of discipline,” Hull said this week.

The charge was brought by  Shane Snyder, the father of Mt. Hebron quarterback Jake Snyder, and alleged that Centennial assistant coach Matt Winger, of Columbia, pushed his son  Jake to the ground during an on-field altercation between the teams at a Sept. 21 game.  After the game, Jake was diagnosed with a broken wrist, which ended his 2013 season.  According to Winger's defense attorney Michael DeHaven, the charge was dropped after the Howard County State's Attorney's office determined there was not enough evidence to prosecute Winger.

Bobby Ross got much of the credit for Maryland's short reign as the most dominant team in the Atlantic Coast Conference in the mid 1980s, but Joe Krivak was often referred to as the guru and play-caller for a string of record-setting Terps quarterbacks. Krivak, who died Tuesday after battling leukemia, tutored a line of Maryland quarterbacks that began with Boomer Esiason and Frank Reich, included Stan Gelbaugh and Dan Henning, and ended with Neil O'Donnell and Scott Zolak after Krivak succeeded Ross as head coach in 1987.

In his first year as Johns Hopkins' starting quarterback, Braden Anderson might be expected to show some nerves and play with some hesitancy.

Broadneck football coach Rob Harris took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge twice. He's not on Facebook and didn't have proof of the first dousing, so he had ice water poured over his head a second time. That didn't bother him. Harris would take a few more ice water showers if it would raise additional money for research into the neurodegenerative disease at the heart of the challenge, a social media fundraising wave that has swept the country this month. Harris has a personal connection to ALS. His wife Sarah's uncle, Johnny O'Brien, a former Severna Park football player, was 56 when he died in January of the condition widely known as Lou Gehrig's disease.
