Bill Grau and Dan McCabe were neighbors who helped coach their kids in a youth football program in Sykesville. They enjoyed what they did, and their kids had fun, but both wondered why there wasn't a similar program where they lived. Just over four years ago, the two formed the Western Howard County Warhawks, a youth football program that started out big - and has kept growing. The program had 250 kids for its age-group teams in 2002, the club's first year of competition, and this fall enrolled about 450 players from 6 to 14. The club has become a strong feeder for several county high school teams.

When Francis Scott Key's John Baugher stares across Greenway Stadium in Cumberland tonight at his Eagles' Class 2A West Region title-game rival, Fort Hill, the visiting coach will feel as though he's looking at a team that is just like his own. "They're big up front, like to run the ball. They're disciplined. They're physical," the third-year coach said. "There's not a lot of flair to their offense. They just try wear you down - very similar to the way that we do." But there are some things that will be foreign to the Eagles (9-2)

Al Grau doesn't worry too much about old age. At 57, he figures he still has about 40 or 50 good years ahead of him. And considering he can bench-press 300 pounds and run the 40-yard dash in 5.3 seconds, he just might be right.Years ago, Grau remembers watching the "Tonight Show," and Johnny Carson had a guest who was 106 years old and had just run a marathon. "This guy looked like he was maybe 70 years old," Grau says. "The guy was still employed! That guy was my hero."Grau, who is the athletic director for Chesapeake High School in Anne Arundel County, teaches two weight-training classes.
