Anyone looking through the fence as the season's first football practice was about to get underway Wednesday at Dunbar's East Baltimore field saw a bunch of guys in helmets and shorts and T-shirts tossing footballs, stretching or just talking. Everything appeared the same as any other year and that's exactly what Dunbar athletic director Dana Johnson wanted as preseason practice began for the Poets and all other fall sports team at Maryland public schools. Despite being without coach Lawrence Smith, who is appealing a one-year suspension for his handling of an alleged locker-room hazing incident last fall, the Poets are moving on with business as usual under interim coach Michael Carter, the Poets' defensive coordinator for the past few years.

Ric Evans has no illusions about his new job. In taking over Hereford's football team, Evans inherits one of the most successful programs in Baltimore County - if not the state - from one of the best coaches to walk the sideline, Steve Turnbaugh, a two-time All-Metro Coach of the Year who guided the Bulls to three state titles and 11 state tournament appearances in 19 seasons. "I'm certainly not going to try and fill the shoes of the guy before me. He is a legend," said Evans, who spent the last eight seasons as a Hereford assistant coach and takes the reins Wednesday, the first day of practice for public school teams.

Succeeding Bob Ford as only the second head coach of the Albany football program might seem like a daunting task. But Greg Gattuso has some experience to lean on. Gattuso, Maryland's defensive line coach for the past three years, previously worked for 12 seasons as the head coach at  Duquesne. Gattuso said his biggest challenge is building a connection between the players and coaches, six of whom are new to the Great Danes. “I have no idea how our guys are going to respond to our coaches and how we do things,” Gattuso said during the recent Colonial Athletic Association media day. “I think they're excited about change, but there is a little unknown there.

When Devin Redd thinks of Lawrence Cager, his mind goes back to the summer before Cager's freshman year at Calvert Hall. There, during July summer workouts, in his red shorts, white T-shirt and black Nike shoes, he ran routes and caught passes alongside guys who would go on to play Division I football. Redd, then the wide receivers coach at Calvert Hall, was mesmerized by Cager's size and athletic ability. But he was confused when he found out Cager wanted to be a kicker. "I said, 'Nah, man, you're not a kicker,' " Redd recalled.

This is what is commonly called a no-win situation. A fight at a football game on Sept. 21 between Mt. Hebron and Centennial resulted in the following: two coaches and four players ejected from the game. A Centennial player sustained a broken wrist and his father then sued an assistant coach at Centennial for injuring his son. The case went to court and the assault charge against the coach was dropped. But the coach was removed. So everybody essentially loses. The biggest losers unfortunately are the youngster who was injured, the players who lost a coach in the middle of the season, and coaches and future coaches who instinctively would attempt to break up a fight, but who might now have to think twice before wading in for fear of legal action.
