I am saddened by the presentation of Ray Lewis of the Ravens as a hero. He is nothing more than a very talented athlete ("Ray's day," Jan. 7). Where are our priorities? Ray Lewis has six children by four different mothers, skated away from his 2000 manslaughter debacle by snitching on his "friends," and four years later settled out of court with the families of the two men that were killed in the bar brawl. The clothes he wore that night were never found. He loves to say that he is a Christian.

Edwin F. Royston, who played two years as a guard for the New York Giants in the late 1940s and was a shipbuilding executive, died of cancer Saturday at his home in Seaside Park, N.J. He was 87 and had lived in Highlandtown. Born in Baltimore and raised on Macon Street, he was a 1941 graduate of Patterson Park High School, where he played football. He was nominated for the 1940 Unsung Hero Award. While at the school, he met his future wife, the former Virginia Garner. He served in the Navy during World War II and then earned a physics degree from Wake Forest University, where he was named All Southern guard in 1947 and co-captain of the team.

An autopsy revealed that complications related to heat stroke caused Meadow's death, which was ruled accidental.

A former Navy football player was found not guilty Thursday of sexually assaulting a fellow midshipman at an off-campus party in Annapolis two years ago in a case that has drawn national scrutiny to the elite training ground for future officers of the Navy and Marine Corps. Allegations that Midshipman Joshua Tate and two teammates had sexual contact with the woman while she was too intoxicated to consent have helped fuel the debate over the prosecution of sexual assaults in the military.

COLLEGE PARK - Darryl Hill didn't set out to make history. The Atlantic Coast Conference's first African-American football player said Tuesday that he was a "reluctant pioneer. " But as the former Maryland wide receiver's college career unfolded in the early 1960s, he and his family were victimized by racism. The more Hill was taunted by fans, the more he said he became invested in the cause. "When I started seeing … the horrors that were going on in the South, I got more and more motivated," said Hill, who was invited to campus Tuesday to mark the 50th anniversary of his arrival at the school in 1962.

On a recent sunny, picturesque Sunday morning in Owings Mills, there was a flurry of activity on the practice fields outside the Ravens' team facility. Bird songs occasionally pierced the chirping of whistles, whirring of portable generators and the grunts of large men bumping into each other. The Ravens were wrapping up their three-day rookie minicamp, and their new 10-man draft class, dozens of undrafted rookie free agents and a handful of 2012 practice squad members were buzzing as coaches conducted drills at several different stations across the practice fields.

Baltimore Sun reporters Jeff Barker and Don Markus and editor Matt Bracken weigh in on the three biggest topics of the past week in Maryland sports. With Mark Turgeon's team starting summer workouts, which Terps have the most to gain and the most to lose? Don Markus: This is a critical summer for Turgeon's program. Though many, including Turgeon, see progress in going from 17-15 in his first season in College Park to finishing his second year with a 25-13 record after a trip to the NIT semifinals, most Terp fans (and Turgeon)

An All-State lineman on the offensive side of the ball last season, Wilde Lake's Moise Larose may be even more impressive this fall on the defensive side. The 6-foot-5, 285-pound senior has committed to Rutgers as an offensive tackle, but Wildecats coach Mike Harrison is getting plenty of calls from college coaches who would rather see Larose on their defensive lines next fall. Larose, who played his first three seasons at Meade before transferring to Wilde Lake when his family moved over the summer, leads the Wildecats (3-3)

The Aug. 10 workout at which Morgan State football player Marquese Meadow fell ill was a one-hour, non-contact session geared toward conditioning, a university spokesman said Wednesday. Meadow, a freshman on the Bears' football team, died Sunday of heat stroke after spending two weeks in the hospital. Morgan State spokesman Clint Coleman reiterated Wednesday that the school believes all proper procedures were followed by the coaching staff and athletic trainers. He said Meadow was attended to by a trainer after becoming disoriented toward the end of the Aug. 10 session, during which players were not in pads.

Autopsy results showing that Morgan State University football player Marquese Meadow died of heat stroke have prompted his mother to question whether coaches and trainers monitored the heat at practice or gave players enough water breaks. Meadow, an 18-year-old freshman from Washington, D.C., died early Sunday after being hospitalized for two weeks. School officials said he became disoriented after an Aug. 10 football practice. His death has been ruled accidental, said Bruce Goldfarb, spokesman for the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.

There's plenty that distinguishes Ravens rookie offensive lineman John Urschel from his teammates, including his prodigious academic career and potential in the field of mathematics. But what I couldn't fit into Sunday's story was the fact that, with all of his football and academic responsibilities, Urschel taught two classes at Penn State - and did it well, by all accounts. Urschel said it's not typical for master's students to teach at Penn State - that responsibility typically goes to doctoral students.

Jelani Roberts remembers watching Northwestern's Venric Mark a couple years ago. The speedy three-star receiver who will be a senior at Gilman this fall saw how Mark torched his opponents for more than 1,300 rushing yards and more than 600 combined return yards in 2012, scoring 14 total touchdowns. Most of all, it was Mark's size that drew Roberts to Northwestern's All-American return man. At 5-feet-8 and 175 pounds, Mark was by no means an intimidating figure, but he continued to produce highlight-reel worthy plays on the field.
