It apparently will take more than a dispersal draft to unite former Las Vegas Posse place-kicker Carlos Huerta and the Baltimore Football Club.Miami-based attorney Dave Schull rejected Baltimore's initial contract offer yesterday, then said Huerta will "remain retired" for now."The sticking point is, Carlos doesn't want to be trapped with no way out," said Schull, who is representing Huerta.Baltimore chose Huerta in the first round of Tuesday's dispersal draft of Posse players. The team is willing to renegotiate Huerta's contract -- he made $25,000 last season -- but also wants to extend it through the 1996 season.

WASHINGTON - When Dr. Elmer Huerta was still practicing oncology in his native Peru, he was disturbed by seeing too many patients coming in too late for treatment of cancer that might have been prevented. Some people had put "yerba buena," or good herb, on the huge tumors that were deforming their bodies in the belief it would dissolve the cancer. Since then, he has immigrated to the United States and in 1994 established a cancer "preventorium" at Washington Hospital Center for detection and prevention in seemingly healthy patients.

Carlos Huerta had worked all week to remove the emotion of the moment. He talked himself through practices. He meditated. He used breathing and visualization techniques.Still, when the moment arrived Monday night and he jogged onto the turf at Soldier Field with the Chicago Bears, the diminutive kicker no longer could hold back his feelings.As he joined his new teammates on the sideline, his pulse raced and his eyes glistened with moisture."It hit me, for 10 or 15 seconds, how much I had dreamed to be there, not for the Chicago Bears necessarily, but in the NFL," Huerta said later.

Carlos Huerta's dream of kicking in the NFL will pass through Baltimore after all.After briefly threatening to retire, Huerta said yesterday he has agreed to play out the option year of his contract with the Baltimore Football Club at the bargain-basement price of $25,000, rather than extend and increase the value of the contract.In so doing, the 25-year-old Miami native reserves the right to jump from the Canadian Football League to the NFL in 1996."Am I happy? I'm happy to be playing football and happy to be in Baltimore," Huerta said.

Stallions kicker Carlos Huerta was among the first to shower, dress and depart from the locker room after the team's first-round playoff win over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers last Saturday.His early exit was understandable. Missing three of five field-goal attempts and the first failed extra point of his two-year CFL career wasn't a moment Huerta wanted to savor.It was a different scene around Huerta's locker after yesterday's 21-11 Southern Division championship victory over the San Antonio Texans.

Haven't we seen this act before?Two weeks ago, Carlos Huerta kicked a short field goal in the final seconds to help the Baltimore Stallions beat Saskatchewan in come-from-behind fashion.Last night, Huerta was at it again.

MIAMI -- Carlos Huerta came home. Tracy Ham and Mike Pringle came off the bench. And Birmingham came a long way to get blown out.The Baltimore Football Club used the Huerta-Ham-Pringle trifecta to drub Birmingham, 37-0, last night before 20,250 at the Orange Bowl in the second exhibition for both teams.Birmingham was thought to be Baltimore's chief competition in the Canadian Football League's South Division. That might not have been well thought out, as was proven last night during South Florida's test run for a CFL franchise.

After getting shut down by the Saskatchewan Roughriders last week, Baltimore Stallions running back Mike Pringle promised to deliver in yesterday's rematch at Memorial Stadium.Pringle, the Canadian Football League's premier runner, meant what he said.He rushed for 179 yards, including 161 in the second half. And he ripped off sizable chunks of yardage on Baltimore's final drive to put kicker Carlos Huerta in position to kick a 21-yard field goal with five seconds left, giving the Stallions a wild, 29-27 victory before 31,421, the largest crowd here this year.

At 6 feet 5, 220 pounds, rookie slotback Lance Yandell has been hard to miss at the Baltimore Football Club camp. When he's been on the field, that is.Yandell, the all-time leading receiver in eight categories at Baldwin-Wallace College who played last year in the Arena Football League for the Cleveland Thunderbolts, strained his right hamstring a week ago and missed Monday's workouts at Towson State.The rest of the week has been a physical struggle. Yesterday morning, Yandell pulled up while running a pass route, tossed his helmet in frustration and lay on the ground with a strained left hamstring.

Even when Carlos Huerta is relaxed, he looks and sounds restless.Huerta said he is feeling good about his performance as the Baltimore Stallions' kicker. When you've made 10 straight field goals and have played an important role in both of your team's victories, congratulations are in order.But Huerta will not stand still long enough to receive a pat on the back. At practice, when he's not kicking long field goals routinely, Huerta, 5 feet 7, 185 pounds, is a bundle of nervous energy, running sprints, jogging laps, stretching, kicking on the side, never sitting.
