Offense Player of the YearAaron Thompson, Mount St. Joseph, senior (6-1, 200): The transfer from Forest Park runs a 4.4-second 40-yard dash.

Steve Kelley's future grows brighter with every handoff. He's No. 1 among area rushers, has scored all but three of Kenwood's 25 touchdowns, and is being compared to one of the best high school running backs the state has ever produced.But Kelley himself says his senior season is more about a lesson learned than status acquired or yardage gained. Every score is a swipe at erasing some bad memories.Kelley, a transfer from Chesapeake, had amassed more than 500 yards and four touchdowns last year.

COLLEGE PARK -- Two hundred ninety-two yards.One touchdown.An afternoon's work in high school is all Larry Washington has to show for his college football career. Maryland will celebrate homecoming tomorrow, but Washington wants no part of the pageant. His Terps days are over, disrupted by an arrest, an injury, wavering incentive and -- primary in his view -- a coaching change.His controversial departure from the team came in August. Washington is 25 pounds over his desired playing weight, but right now he's more concerned with raising his grade-point average to a level that will allow him to transfer and play elsewhere next season.
