Mark Karcher's hiatus from local high school basketball is coming to an end. Starting this fall, Karcher will lead the varsity boys program at Bluford Drew Jemison STEM Academy. The former St. Frances coach's first-year program is located on the old Walbrook campus in West Baltimore. Karcher, who said in November that his departure from St. Frances was a “forced resignation,” has some familiarity with the Bluford system. Karcher's son attends the school's East Baltimore campus, and one of his former Panthers assistants - Marcus Wise - is the boys JV coach.

When Sean Mosley walked onto the court at St. Frances his freshman year, the comparisons to Mark Karcher, one of the most honored players in Panthers history, were inevitable. The two players are similar in size (Mosley is 6 feet 4, Karcher 6-5) and in their style of play, combining strength and flair. Although some players might downplay a comparison to someone as accomplished as Karcher, Mosley embraces it. In part, that's because Mosley has been working with Karcher to improve his game.
