North Carolina State, at 5-0, is one of the early season darlings of college football, and former Dunbar High standout Antoine Colvin has been part of the ride to a No. 17 ranking in the Associated Press Top 25. Colvin is a second-year freshman offensive lineman on a team making signs that it could mimmick Maryland's surprising 2001 success in the Atlantic Coast Conference. He was on the field for 21 snaps in the first three games of the season as a backup to senior Shane Riggs at left guard, before moving to center to provide depth the previous two games.

Anthony Lawston can't help it. The redshirt sophomore might feel his heart beating a little faster when he takes the field for Georgia Tech against Maryland on national television Oct. 11 at Bobby Dodd Stadium in Atlanta. "Even though most of my family now lives in Florida, facing Maryland is always something special for me," said Lawston. "I was so geared up last year I got called for two late hits. I remember one was out of bounds on their quarterback, Shaun Hill, and the other was after a touchdown."

Tell me where do you go when you got no dough, "There must be a way out of here.

Along the asphalt roads of the Villages of Tall Trees apartment complex, young Anthony Lawston ran nightly wind sprints for football training -- past the drug dealers, prostitutes and crackles of gunfire.For Anthony, the seediness of that Essex neighborhood was all too familiar. Born to a mother who was addicted to crack cocaine -- and was later imprisoned for drug dealing -- his football skills had helped him push forward, toward a goal of playing in the National Football League. So even on those crime-ridden streets, he kept running, despite the gunfire.

THE BALTIMORE metropolitan area may not be a haven for the nation's best football players, but there is enough talent to have made the University of Maryland a national power in the mid-1980s and not enough to have saved Ron Vanderlinden's job last week. During his four years at the school, Vanderlinden made some inroads into the Baltimore area for signing players, but it came about two years too late. Some of the players that got away, such as McDonogh guard Lance Clelland (Northwestern)

Navy's football team has no reason to lack inspiration this week. After a dull effort in a 17-6 opening-game loss to Temple two Saturdays ago, the Midshipmen move to higher ground with a visit to a Georgia Tech team that extended No. 2 Florida State to the final whistle before losing, 26-21, last week. Moreover, Georgia Tech - with All-American Joe Hamilton at quarterback - blasted the Mids, 49-14, in Annapolis to start 1999, by far Navy's worst defeat of the season. Play it back for payback purposes.
