Navy's annual spring football game has been canceled due to a scheduling conflict, coach Ken Niumatalolo said Wednesday. The game had been scheduled for April 12 at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. Niumatalolo said in a news release that the team will add one practice to get to the full allotment of 15 workouts allowed by the NCAA in the spring. Two of the practices -- scrimmages on March 30 and April 6, both starting at 9 a.m. at the stadium -- will be open to the general public.

Bernard Pollard is a complicated guy. He is one of the hardest hitters in the NFL, but speaks passionately about player safety. He clearly loves the game, but said Thursday that he understands why parents are steering their kids away from it -- and he will do the same with his young son. "I'm not grooming him to play," Pollard said," "If I cannot stop him ... if he's adamant to want to play, I will allow him to check it out, to try it out, but...

The uplifting sounds of gospel music provide Ravens rookie inside linebacker Arthur Brown a release from the grind of football. The second-round draft pick from Kansas State is bespectacled and soft-spoken, cultivating a professorial look off the field as he frequently wears a tie, slacks and dress shoes. During his spare time, the 23-year-old can be found playing the piano or whipping up his favorite meal of salmon and sweet potatoes. Brown's personality away from the game, though, is a contrast to his aggressive nature on the field.

The whispers reached Carroll Washington III like a game of telephone. Some said the Edmondson grad had gone to trade school. Another rumor placed him at a Division II university in Pennsylvania. Speculation on the whereabouts of the quarterback who, as a sophomore, led the Red Storm to the 2006 Class 2A state football championship, almost always boiled down to this: Whatever happened to Carroll Washington? During the two years after Washington graduated from Edmondson in 2009, the short answer to that question was working out, taking classes at Baltimore City Community College and wondering where he went wrong in his quest to play Division I football.

Sisto Joseph Averno Sr., a guard who played on the Baltimore Colts in the 1950s and went on to sell Chevrolets for 57 years, died of complications from Parkinson's disease Monday at Northwest Hospital. He was 86 and lived in Pikesville. Born in Paterson, N.J., he was the son of Roberto Averno and Elvira Isabella Salerno. While a student at Paterson High School, he played football and was scouted by colleges. He won athletic scholarships, but he forged a birth certificate so he could enlist in the Navy during World War II. He was assigned to the South Pacific and served as a gunner's mate aboard a destroyer.

The Houston Oilers professional football team was within its rights to dock the pay of starting tackle David Williams for skipping a football game hours after the birth of his son. After all, most leaves for new parents are unpaid. And if the $111,111 price tag of this parental leave seems excessive, it does represent the salary per game for a $2 million starting tackle.But what makes this story interesting is the contrast between the macho-types running the football club who suggested Mr. Williams was a wimp and the equally macho fans who flooded call-in shows with support for a player who dared to put a football game second to his family.
