University of Maryland offensive tackle Clarence Jones was the last player selected in the first day of the National Football League draft Sunday. Jones' celebration lasted only a little while.Only minutes after Jones, 6 feet 6, 277 pounds, had been picked by the New York Giants in the fourth round, Jones was in the dormitory of teammate, friend and fellow offensive tackle O'Neil Glenn, who had not been drafted."I was very happy for Clarence," said Glenn, 6-2, 283. "He came over, but he knew my head was out of it. He just kept telling me that I had already proved I was better than a lot of people thought and that my time would eventually come."

Bruce McGonnigal had worked hard to prepare for his final football season at the University of Virginia. He had spent more time in the weight room last summer than in any of his previous four years with the Cavaliers. As the starting tight end on the nation's top team, McGonnigal had a shot at becoming the school's all-time receiver.McGonnigal's season, and his chance for the record books, likely came to an end Thursday night with injuries he suffered to the kidney and spleen. The injuries were the result a freak fall at a home that the former Loyola High School star and his girlfriend were house-sitting near the Charlottesville, Va., campus.
