Mike Locksley can relate to the game of football as a way of life, because neither one has been easy for him.Inner-city D.C. A struggle to simply survive, let alone find a way out. A not-so-nice neighborhood, and sports the only outlet for youngsters trying to grow up."I had a lot of adversity," Locksley, a senior and two-year starter in the Towson State secondary, was saying yesterday."You did whatever you could, cut the corners, anything, to get ahead. Nothing ever came easy. It was like that at home and like that when I came to Towson."

COLLEGE PARK -  Maryland's coaches have personnel meetings every Wednesday night during which they discuss the depth chart and any potential changes. Offensive coordinator Mike Locksley reiterated Wednesday that C.J. Brown is the Terps' starting quarterback and that Caleb Rowe is his backup. Locksley was asked Wednesday whether he would consider using Rowe, who has a stronger arm, as a change-of-pace quarterback to Brown, a talented runner who has struggled at times throwing the ball this season.

Maryland football coach Ron Vanderlinden is adding former Towson State player Mike Locksley to his staff, but he's still searching for another assistant coach after Terry Malone's departure to Michigan.Malone, who was supposed to coach the Terps' tight ends, is the second assistant to abruptly leave Vanderlinden, who was named head coach in early December. Lou Tepper was Maryland's assistant head coach and defensive coordinator for less than a month before he resigned."Having one coach leave happens from time to time," Vanderlinden said.

COLLEGE PARK -  Shortly after Maryland's 52-7 win over James Madison, Terps senior quarterback C.J. Brown sat in front of a group of media and called his performance against the Dukes "unacceptable. " Brown ran for 61 yards and three touchdowns, but he finished just 11 of 24 as a passer for just 111 yards. Unacceptable, according to Brown. But to Maryland offensive coordinator Mike Locksley, Brown “did a really good of managing the offense” while making some savvy plays that don't show up on the stat sheet.

Incoming New Mexico coach Mike Locksley is picking up where his predecessor left off, saying the program is in good shape and he's ready to make things even better. "This isn't a rebuilding project. I look at it as a renovation," said Locksley, a former Towson State defensive back and assistant coach, who was introduced yesterday. "I'll be putting my personal touches on the great foundation that's already been laid." New Mexico athletic director Paul Krebs said Locksley, who also served as Maryland's running backs coach and recruiting coordinator from 1997 to 2002, was the only candidate offered the job. He agreed to a six-year contract worth $750,000 annually.

Hollis Paschen is grieving for her missing pet parrot, and all her neighbors know it."LOCKSLEY! GOOD MORNING SWEETHEART! WANT SOME COFFEE?" Ms. Paschen screamed from the deck of her Columbia home yesterday at dawn, as she has done most daybreaks for better than a week. "HERE YOU GO. COME ON, HONEY."Locksley -- a 1-foot-tall, green and yellow Amazon parrot -- is loose in a forested valley behind Ms. Paschen's home in Oakland Mills village, just north of Talbott Springs Elementary School. Ms. Paschen fears the bird isn't eating, is growing weaker and will eventually fall prey to a lethal crow attack.

COLLEGE PARK -- LaMont Jordan slashed through the right side of the line without the ball, veered out in the right flat and extended his arms fully to make a nifty running catch of a 12-yard pass from quarterback Shaun Hill during yesterday afternoon's Maryland football practice. Jordan was dressed in full pads for the first time in nine months and eight days, and he was obviously loving every minute of it. Maryland's Heisman hope also barreled through the line of scrimmage on some impressive runs and made some punishing hits on defenders at the end of those jaunts.

A Harford County golf course owner faces charges after being accused of firing shots near homes, state police said. Samuel C. Smedley, 50, was charged with one count of having a handgun in a vehicle, one count of disorderly conduct and two counts of reckless endangerment in connection with the incident Saturday, according to police. Smedley was a key figure in an Aberdeen annexation proposal. Last year, the Aberdeen City Council attempted to annex 524 acres to make way for a development of more than 1,000 homes.

Would the Maryland football team have liked a commitment from Kai Locksley? Sure. The Gilman rising senior is an athletic talent whom ESPN.com, Rivals.com and a number of major scouting services rank as one of the better dual-threat quarterbacks in the class of 2015. But Locksley's decision Thursday to commit to Florida State does not leave Maryland without quarterback options for the future. Starter C.J. Brown will be gone after this season, but rising junior Caleb Rowe is expected to return.

Gilman quarterback Kai Locksley has orally committed to Florida State, picking the Seminoles over Maryland and Texas. Locksley, the son of Maryland offensive coordinator Mike Locksley, is rated by ESPN as the 11 th -best dual-threat quarterback in the Class of 2015 and the seventh-best player in Maryland. He recently dropped the Terps from consideration, he said. "They kind of were my dark horse throughout this whole process," Locksley said. "They were a school I felt could, out of nowhere, just pop up, but we kind of decided together that it was real hard to play for your dad, especially at the level that he's at and [Maryland]

The announcement Thursday that Gilman quarterback Kai Locksley had committed to play at Florida State was disappointing news for Maryland fans who desperately wanted to see the four-star prospect in College Park in 2015. In the long term, it wasn't awful news for Terps coach Randy Edsall and, more importantly, for his offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, who also happens to be Kai Locksley's father. After talking with the family in June at their home for a story about the relationship between Mike Locksley and the youngest of his three sons , I came away with the feeling that neither Mike nor Kai was totally comfortable with the idea of working together.

Mike Farrell, the national recruiting director for Rivals.com, believes that Maryland has a chance to bring four-star recruit Kai Locksley to College Park in 2015. But Farrell said the negatives might outweigh the positives in terms of the way Terps coach Randy Edsall is trying to build his program and offensive coordinator Mike Locksley, Kai's father, does his job. The younger Locksley recently listed Maryland among the six schools he's considering. That list likely grew by one when Kai Locksley received an offer from Alabama on a visit this week to Tuscaloosa.

Mike Locksley always has tried to play one role with his four children: dad. The Maryland football team's offensive coordinator has been successful in that regard with his daughter, Kori, an Olympic Development Program soccer player who already has eight Division I scholarship offers after her freshman year at Olney's Good Counsel High. His three sons have been a different story. Having already coached his two oldest in college - Michael Jr. at Illinois and Meiko at New Mexico, each for two seasons - Locksley now is weighing the possibility of coaching his youngest son. But when it comes to Kai Locksley, he has to avoid a role that has brought him much acclaim in his coaching career: recruiter.

COLLEGE PARK -- Despite the prevalent wisdom that Maryland cannot win with Maryland talent, the Atlantic Coast Conference champions start nine in-state products on defense -- 10 if you include All-ACC punter Brooks Barnard, who went to Broadneck High. High school football, in the state in general and in the Baltimore area specifically, is not supposed to be of a high caliber. There were years when single high schools in Dallas or Miami turned out more Division I-A scholarship winners than the entire Baltimore metropolitan area.
