Baltimore Ravens offensive line coach Kirk Ferentz was watching UCLA's offense when he put the video on rewind to watch Jonathan Ogden again. "There was one play where he was about 15 yards downfield and then he starts driving the free safety further down the field," said Ferentz. "He does it so easily that it never occurs to you that he is 6-8 and weighs 318 pounds. He's so fluid and good at what he does that he lulls you to sleep. " Ogden's athleticism is why the club made him the No. 1 pick in Ravens history Saturday, and why it believes he will have an easy transition to playing left guard.

"She was the product of a religious South Baltimore family and she received her early Christian nurturing in Leadenhall Baptist Church.

All JJ Butler   had to do to earn a Division I basketball scholarship was run the point for an AAU team he had never played for during a major East Coast tournament with the coach of the school he loved looking on from the stands. Many players in Butler's shoes might have panicked over that type of pressure. But the Patterson Mill senior suited up for Maryland 3D in all three of its games at the Baltimore Big Shots event last weekend, and evidently did more than enough to impress Scott Sanderson . On Monday night, the Lipscomb coach called to offer Butler a scholarship, which the 6-foot-2, 180-pound point guard immediately accepted.

Andre Gurode, a five-time Pro Bowler at center who started at right guard in 2003 and 2004 with the Dallas Cowboys, compared making the switch to left guard to asking a right-handed person to write with his left hand. “I've played guard before,” Gurode said Thursday. “I played on the right side, but I've never played on the left side. It's challenging, but I'm getting better day by day.” Gurode said he and Mark LeVoir are getting reps at left guard while starter Ben Grubbs continues to rehabilitate his injured toe. Grubbs has sat out the team's past two practices and is extremely questionable to play in Sunday's road game against the St. Louis Rams.

Jah Reid has only been a professional football player for about a year now, but he knows that a lot could change in the NFL in the span of a couple of weeks. The Ravens could use their 29th overall draft pick in next Thursday's first round on a guard or they could just as easily sign one of the available free agents at the position. Reid, however, isn't spending a whole lot of time thinking about either scenario. He's too busy trying to earn the position for himself. "I have to go in and expect to play," Reid said [Thursday]

The U.S. Coast Guard's shipyard in Curtis Bay has signed an agreement to provide ship maintenance over the next five years for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Atlantic fleet. The new memorandum of understanding, announced Tuesday by Sen. Barbara Mikulski's office, extends an existing partnership between the Coast Guard and the NOAA, which studies changes in the environment for the federal government. Under the agreement, the NOAA said it expects to send at least one of its nine Atlantic ships to the yard per year for maintenance, though the agency may also contract with private-sector shipyards if the work would be less expensive.

After dragging his golf clubs and luggage off a shuttle bus in long-term parking near BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport on Wednesday afternoon, Leroy Donahue took several quick strides over to his shiny black Tesla Model S and peered through the window. The 77-year-old Arlington, Va., resident then circled his pricey high-tech electric car and, opening the hatchback, watched as water poured out. "Yep," he said, nodding to his travel buddy, Alain Labeau of Potomac. Just as he had suspected, his car - just 14 months old and still parked where he left it before heading off on a golf trip to Maine - had not been spared by the record-setting rainfall that dropped more than 6 inches on the airport and more than 10 inches on other parts of the region on Tuesday, leaving vehicles flooded in lots and on roadways all over.

Growing up in suburban Toronto, Kimbal Mackenzie used to dream about “playing basketball in the states for college.” The 6-foot-1, 185-pound combo guard thought the best way to make that happen was to leave Canada for high school and enroll at a basketball powerhouse somewhere in the U.S. Two years after enrolling at John Carroll, Mackenzie's plan has come to fruition.

After nearly a dozen years of war and scores of deployments, the Maryland National Guard is sending its last soldiers to Afghanistan - even as the killing of a U.S. general this week underscores the continuing volatility of the country and the NATO mission there. More than 100 members of the Maryland Guard's 1100th Theater Aviation Sustainment Maintenance Group landed in Kuwait on Wednesday, the day after Maj. Gen. Harold J. Greene was shot to death at Afghanistan's national military academy in Kabul.

The Coast Guard is reconsidering plans to take on contractors to help process boat permits amid objections from a federal workers ' union. Officials at the Coast Guard's National Vessel Documentation Center, which issues permits for boats, are preparing to collect a new fee from recreational boaters to raise what they say is badly needed revenue. To collect the fee, they planned to contract with outside workers. The American Federation of Government Employees says the plan would violate a long-standing ban on outsourcing tasks currently performed by federal workers . "An annual renewal user fee is just another user fee, not new work," AFGE President J. David Cox Sr. wrote in a letter this month to the Office of Management and Budget.
