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 senior hit a 50-yard field goal as time expired to give the Gators a 31-28 victory over Hereford, their first win over the Bulls in four years. Myers had not kicked in two weeks after suffering a groin injury, but with his backup struggling, he also kicked three extra points before hitting the game-winner. Also a linebacker, he had 21 tackles, including nine solo tackles in the season finale for the Gators (6-4). In seven games, Myers was 2-for-3 on field goals, also kicking a 37-yarder.

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.

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.

A very interesting financial report from the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association more than supports how important high school football is to the state's athletic program.The figures clearly show that football should not be fooled with because of its ability to produce more revenue than any other fall sport. If there is any doubt as to which sport carries the program and which sport is the one most fans care to watch, look at these figures.In the recent fall tournaments, football grossed $210,180.

Two Januarys ago, Maryland football fans rejoiced because they had impressed the National Football League brass by camping out overnight to buy all the tickets to an exhibition game seven months hence.In hindsight, it was a naive assumption. Even sports investor/novelist Tom Clancy could not have dreamed up the twists and turns this story would take. Baltimore was unsuccessful in its bid for an expansion team -- twice -- and Orioles owner Peter Angelos was unable to buy two existing NFL franchises on the block.

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Tim Couch does not walk on water, but he has performed a minor miracle: He has folks in Kentucky talking about something other than hoops and horses.Kentucky was the first member of the Southeastern Conference to play football, but it has usually been an athletic afterthought, the occasional diversion to Rupp Arena romps and the thoroughbred sales at Keeneland.Until Couch, the Wildcats' junior quarterback, came along.A schoolboy legend in tiny Hyden in the southeast corner of the state, Couch was under enormous pressure to stay home and rescue Kentucky football.
