With a unique style, he was a motivator and leader of young men."We miss him terribly and often think of him, or something comes up that brings Big Al to mind," said Fred Stauffer, who succeeded Laramore as athletic director in 1971. "Even the newer kids have heard about him and know who he was. He's a legend."Laramore's exterior was gruff and rather intimidating, but inside, he was caring.

It's been just over two years since former Annapolis coach Al Laramore died, and a long-deserved memorial of some sort in his honor appears to be in the offing.A movement led by several coaches and headed by former Laramore football assistant, Billy Phebus, is pushing toname the Panthers' football field after Laramore. The Richard G. Ensor Panther Stadium moniker would be retained with the addition of a hyphen and Al Laramore Field.Something that should convince the decision makers to do just that is the approval of the late Ensor's wife, Veronica Ensor King.

Following a legend in Al Laramore as football coach at Annapolis High, Roy Brown has established his own legacy. Brown, who is seeking a county-record sixth consecutive appearance in the state playoffs, will likely become Anne Arundel County's seventh football coach to win 100 games when his No. 4-ranked Panthers (5-0) play host to North County (0-5) tomorrow. In so doing, Brown would become the second Annapolis coach to reach the milestone. Laramore, the man Brown succeeded in 1989 when the former died of a heart attack, is the county's all-time winningest coach at 156-68-2 in 23 seasons.
