Compliments from Kyle Jakobe are hard to come by. So when the owner and head trainer of Sweat Performance in Lutherville commended Ben Grubbs for his precise footwork during agility drills earlier this month, the former Ravens All-Pro offensive guard thought he was being mocked. "He looked at me like I had three heads. He was mad because he thought I was talking trash to him," said Jakobe, 30. "I was like, 'No, I'm serious,' but he wasn't having it. I couldn't convince him. " Grubbs, now with the New Orleans Saints, didn't need much convincing to keep coming back after his first couple workouts with Jakobe five years ago, before he was recognized as one of Baltimore's top up-and-coming trainers.

Heaver and other GRAB students had spent their spring break at the gorge, participating in a climbing program and learning about high line rescues. Just days before they were slated to leave, one of the search and rescue volunteers who had worked with them earlier in the week contacted the group to ask for help — a woman had fallen near an area called Indian Staircase.
