When John Brady took over at Annapolis for legendary coach Al Laramore in 1977, he inherited a program that had made the state tournament in five of the previous six years with a state championship in in 1974. It was a tough act to follow, but Brady has proven to be plenty tough and successful. He used the program's established tradition as a springboard and, in 35 seasons, has the most wins (717-151 career mark) of any coach in the area. Brady has guided the Panthers to 15 trips to the state tournament, including a state title in 1990 and three runner-up finishes.

When John Brady's basketball players make a mistake, he barks like a big dog. His eyebrows knit and his mustache dances under a nose that is uncomfortably close to a player's face. The long-time Annapolis High School coach is one of the most successful coaches in Maryland -- he should notch his 500th victory this month -- and certainly one of the most intimidating. His practices take place in pantomime. No one speaks when Brady is on the court. "I think I've mellowed," says Brady, 53, now in his 24th year as coach.

For some, coaching two high school basketball teams might be too much. For Annapolis coach John Brady, it might not be enough. Brady, 54, is the first in Anne Arundel County-- and believed to be the first in the state -- to coach both boys and girls varsity basketball teams simultaneously. Last night at Southern of Harwood, Brady coached his first of at least 18 doubleheaders this season. Annapolis' No. 4-ranked boys gave Brady career win No. 513 in the second game, 75-71, leaving him one short of the Anne Arundel County record of 514 held by Southern coach Tom Albright.

Some consider him the Bobby Knight of local high school basketball, but it's a comparison with which Annapolis coach John Brady doesn't agree. "Don't compare me to Bobby Knight because while he does a lot of good things, he can be unfair and a fool once in awhile," says Brady, who admires the styles of Maryland's Gary Williams and Rick Majerus of Utah more. "But when it comes to being a tactician, Knight might be the best." Despite Brady's disdain for the Knight comparison, there are similarities between the two. In this era of political correctness and sensitivity, the two have remained steadfast in their beliefs.

Successfully opening a caramel candy got John Brady his first coaching job in 1970. Now in his 20th year as head coach at Annapolis, Brady is closing in on a sweet milestone, 400 career wins.At 49, Brady has a career mark of 399-76 (.840). Other than Morgan Wootten of DeMatha, who has more than 1,100 victories and got his 400th in his 14th season, no other Maryland coach has climbed to 400 as quickly as Brady. Ray Mullis, the late Cardinal Gibbons coach, reached No. 400 in his 20th season, but not until his 13th victory that year.

Gary Lam Severna Park It's one thing to successfully defend a state title with most of the players back. It's another to repeat with a mostly new group. Assembling an entirely new defense and front line, Lam managed to do just that as the No. 2 Falcons once again captured the Class 3A crown. The third-year coach determined who belonged where on the field and quickly developed a cohesive group that surpassed all expectations in a 17-1 season. "When you win a title and want another, you don't start where you left off - you're back even with everyone else," said Lam, who is now 46-5-3 in three seasons.

John Brady is nearly 60, has a grown daughter and has coached the children of players who were on his teams when he began coaching at Annapolis High School in 1977. However, he has never outgrown wanting his parents at his games. That's why his metro area record-breaking victory as a boys basketball coach Monday was somewhat bittersweet. Two weeks before, Brady?s mother, Clara, had died at the age of 81. Whether it was watching her son coach basketball or watching sports on TV, Clara was a fan. Most of all, though, she and her husband, John Sr., were fans of their son. "Any success I?
