After the Gilman football team upset McDonogh on Saturday, one online media outlet reported that Greyhounds coach Biff Poggi might not be back on the sideline next fall. But when asked about the report Monday, Poggi said he had no plans to leave. "I've got another son who's pretty good. He played as a freshman, so I'm not going anywhere," Poggi said of his younger son, Henry Poggi , who played on the varsity along with brother Jim Poggi , a senior. Biff Poggi said he was asked Saturday about Jim moving on to play for Iowa next year but said he didn't mean to give the impression that he was moving along, too. "I said I'm really interested in him getting settled, and I want to get out to see him as much as I can, and I think [the reporter]

LAKEWOOD, Ohio - The pressure was on the Gilman football team before it even stepped onto the field for the season opener Sunday afternoon. Facing St. Edward (Ohio), one of the top-ranked teams in the country, in front of a nationally televised audience, the Greyhounds knew they'd be in for a test. And the Eagles lived up to the billing - starting strong, finishing stronger and breezing to a 38-7 victory. "I don't think we prepared for anything. We got walloped … absolutely hammered," Gilman coach Biff Poggi said.

A day after Loyola's bid to secure a berth in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference championship was interrupted by lightning Tuesday night at Johnny Unitas Stadium, the No. 2 Dons finished the job with a 13-7 victory over No. 3 Gilman on Wednesday afternoon at the same site. Leading, 13-5, with 6:57 left in the fourth quarter when play was stopped on Tuesday, all Loyola (15-3) had to do was play keep-away against the inspired Greyhounds (12-4) to advance to the conference final against archrival No. 1 Calvert Hall (15-2)

When football kicks off for Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference teams this weekend, the highest profile games will be on the road. McDonogh, last season's No. 1 team after going 11-0, tries for a second-straight win at Benedictine College Prep in Richmond, Va., Saturday while St. Frances attempts to avenge last season's loss to Friendship Collegiate at Spingarn High School in Washington, D.C.

Before Shane Cockerille found his seat at Byrd Stadium for Maryland's Red-White spring game on Saturday, the Gilman quarterback felt the need to pay Terps coach Randy Edsall   a quick visit. “I was ready to [commit] when I walked in,” Cockerille said. “I told Coach [Edsall that I was committing] and it put a big smile on his face. He said he was more excited than I was. It feels great. It feels like a relief.” Cockerille picked Maryland over offers from Michigan, Navy, Temple and Virginia.

The announcement Thursday that Gilman quarterback Kai Locksley had committed to play at Florida State was disappointing news for Maryland fans who desperately wanted to see the four-star prospect in College Park in 2015. In the long term, it wasn't awful news for Terps coach Randy Edsall and, more importantly, for his offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, who also happens to be Kai Locksley's father. After talking with the family in June at their home for a story about the relationship between Mike Locksley and the youngest of his three sons , I came away with the feeling that neither Mike nor Kai was totally comfortable with the idea of working together.

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.

Franklin is ranked No. 6 and Gilman No. 25 in the MaxPreps South Regional Football Computer Rankings released Thursday. Franklin, the defending Class 3A state champion, is also ranked No. 22 nationally in Monday's MaxPreps Freeman Rankings , which is also a computer ranking.

COLLEGE PARK - Kenneth Goins rarely, if ever, lined up as a traditional fullback at Gilman. As a result, it took time to acclimate once Goins got to Maryland. He also needed to get bigger than he was in high school when the 5-foot-9 Goins weighed around just 215 pounds. But he took over as the Terrapins' starting fullback as a redshirt freshman last year, and coach Randy Edsall said Goins is Maryland's clear-cut top fullback through the first week of preseason practice. "[He's]

A new November date for the SAT will conflict this fall with some state championships and the last regular-season football games in the MIAA A Conference, including the Gilman-McDonogh rivalry game. The athletes, however, still will have plenty of time to take the test in the fall if they plan ahead. The College Board moved the SAT date this year from the first Saturday of November to the second Saturday, Nov. 8 -- the date of state championships in cross country, field hockey and boys and girls soccer.

Would the Maryland football team have liked a commitment from Kai Locksley? Sure. The Gilman rising senior is an athletic talent whom ESPN.com, Rivals.com and a number of major scouting services rank as one of the better dual-threat quarterbacks in the class of 2015. But Locksley's decision Thursday to commit to Florida State does not leave Maryland without quarterback options for the future. Starter C.J. Brown will be gone after this season, but rising junior Caleb Rowe is expected to return.

For the No. 5 Gilman soccer team, success comes down to intangibles. The No. 5 Greyhounds (14-4-4) take on No. 2 Loyola (14-3-1) in Sunday's Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference championship game, and they are banking on all the little things adding up to the program's second league title in three years. Game time is set for 5:30 p.m. at Stevenson University in Owings Mills. The Greyhounds like to frustrate opponents with tight marking, make sure to win most 50-50 balls in the middle, scratch across enough offense and put the team first.
