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.

One of the area's top defensive ends, D'Avanzo dominated on both sides of the ball in the No. 14 Friars' 18-13 season-opening victory over Patterson at the I-95 Kickoff Classic on Friday. The 6-foot-3, 275-pound senior had 14 tackles, a sack, a forced fumble, a recovered fumble and a blocked punt. At wingback, he made a one-handed grab on third-and-long for a 16-yard gain that set up the Friars' first touchdown. His sack and forced fumble set up the second score, and his blocked punt led to the game-winning touchdown, which he scored on a 3-yard run with two minutes left in the game.

Robin Zahor of Ellicott City spends at least two hours every weekend watching her sons play football. "I sit there like a stooge," said Zahor, 45. "It's complicated to me, and I can't ask anybody -- I feel like an idiot." "This is torture," she added. So Tuesday night, Zahor and 29 other women huddled in the central library's meeting room to hear Diane Schumacher, athletic director at Howard Community College, present "Football for Femmes." "I really need this class," Zahor said. Schumacher starts off with a simple question: "Why are you all here?"

Are you ready for some football? No, let's rephrase that. Are you ready for so much NFL football - on CBS, NBC, Fox, ESPN, NFL Network, on Thursday nights, Sunday afternoons, Sunday nights, Monday nights, and Saturdays later in the season - that you just want to scream? So much NFL football that no matter where you go, you can't get away from seeing it on TV, hearing it on the radio, listening to it being endlessly dissected on sports talk shows, and running into fantasy-football dweebs who bore you to death with their endless jabber about some 15th-round sleeper pick who's going to win them the division?

McDonogh senior Cap Poklemba has played baseball and soccer since he was 5.On Tuesday night, however, Poklemba orally accepted a full scholarship to play football at Temple after only one season of high school football.The scholarship, for soccer-style kicking ability that almost always landed the ball out of the end zone, will allow Poklemba to play baseball, as well. Mississippi, Clemson and Northwestern also expressed interest.Several times last fall, the second-team All-Metro shortstop from Taylorsville took time away from soccer and football to go on recruiting visits for baseball -- his initial focus.
