Former Loyola University soccer great Stan Koziol, who also played briefly for the Blast in an eight-year professional career, passed away Monday morning after battling leukemia. He was 48. Koziol, a New Jersey native, enjoyed a stellar four-year career at Loyola, where he was a two-time All-American (1986-87) and remains the program's all-time leader in assists. He was inducted into the school's Hall of Fame in 1994. Koziol began his professional career playing outdoors for the American Soccer League's Maryland Bays in 1988 and, after a season with the Boston Bolts in the ASL, returned to Baltimore to play for the Blast in the 1989-90 season.

Joe Koziol may look as if he is playing indoor soccer, but he really is climbing a mountain.Who would have guessed?Koziol, 24, is the second-leading goal scorer and third leading scorer overall for the Baltimore Blast. He is having the best season of his pro career, so it comes as something of a shock when the former Loyola College Greyhound says that every day he is fighting to rebuild his confidence."At times I think I'm a skillful player," said Koziol, a midfielder. "And, then, at other times, I think I don't belong on the floor.

Joe Koziol was a free agent, no longer wanted by the Cleveland Crunch, when he returned to Baltimore in 1991.A native of Passaic, N.J., Koziol had spent his college years here, at Loyola. He was the third player taken in the 1989 Major Soccer League draft, but after two seasons Cleveland didn't re-sign him."I thought I was done," Koziol said of his pro indoor soccer career. "I figured I'd come to Baltimore and settle down, work up a resume and find a real job."He was spared that fate when Kenny Cooper, then the Blast coach, signed him. After a productive year that included six two-goal games in the MSL's final season, Koziol is midway through another, this one with the Spirit of the National Professional Soccer League.

When Susan Souder and Carl Koziol bought their Catonsville home 10 years ago, it wasn't worth a dime."The house was appraised as having no value," said Ms. Souder, sitting in the airy library of the nine-room Victorian. "Basically, it was going to cost as much to fix it up as it was worth, so it was worth nothing. What we paid for was the land."The land -- 3 wooded acres in Catonsville's Paradise neighborhood -- was worth the $128,000 price, the couple decided. But what to do about the house?

The former Loyola College star had two goals and a game-high six points in the Spirit's 16-7 victory over the Buffalo Blizzard yesterday before 3,989 at the Baltimore Arena. It raised the Spirit's home record to 10-1.
