Dunbar didn't take long to set the tone for Saturday's Class 1A football state championship. In the first 3 minutes, the No. 6 Poets ran the ball six times for 58 yards, culminating in Coleman Blackston's 26-yard touchdown run, and they were well on their way to a 39-0 victory over New Town for their third straight state title at M&T Bank Stadium. "It's amazing right now," Poets senior defensive end Marvin Gross said. "They were talking trash all week and in The Baltimore Sun and that just makes it that much better that we beat them.

As a senior at City College in 1991, Joe Holland knew little about the Douglass football program other than that it was a loser. "We were going undefeated in the [Maryland Scholastic Association's] A Conference, and I know they were always getting beat in the C Conference," Holland said. "I remember one season, they won their first game in like eight years and it was like they won the Super Bowl." Now, as a coach trying to resurrect what used to be a winning tradition at Douglass, Holland is well-versed in the Ducks' past football futility, which includes a 38-109 record between 1989 and the start of this season.

Everyone who thinks New Town will defeat two-time defending champion Dunbar in the Class 1A state football finals Saturday, raise your hands. Shawn Magginson can count the few believers. "Our parents, our coaches and our players say we can win," said Magginson, the Titans' quarterback. To others, the result seems a foregone conclusion. "We're gonna get smashed," running back Donte' Gross said. "At least, that's what I hear. " Who's to argue? It's the first trip to the finals - and cavernous M&T Bank Stadium - for New Town (11-2)

Thanks to the organization of tomorrow's Comcast Baltimore Marathon, distance running has a future in a city seemingly obsessed with baseball and football. But like its sporting siblings, marathon running in and around the city is not without a colorful past. Propelled by an increased popularity of recreational sports and President John F. Kennedy's emphasis on physical fitness, marathoning had a presence in Maryland in the 1960s in the Washington's Birthday Marathon in Greenbelt and the JFK 50 ultramarathon in Western Maryland.

Frostburg State's football team is no longer just a decent group of players who perform out west, hidden among the Allegheny Mountains.Not after the Bobcats enjoyed their best season last year. Not after they finished the regular season at 9-1, made the NCAA Division III playoffs for the first time, and won their first-round game before falling in the national quarterfinals.With 17 starters back, the Bobcats won't be surprising people anymore. In one year, they have gone from a blip on the Division III screen to a team that has been ranked among the top five in preseason polls.
