Walter Sanders is a prime example of someone you may not expect to be affected by the NFL lockout. The Baltimore native is not a current player or coach, nor does he work for a team’s front office. Instead, Sanders is one of the numerous players who did not hear his name called during April's draft. He is a free agent in a world without free agency. For those who saw "Inception," he’s pretty much stuck in the NFL version of limbo. Sanders, a former three-sport standout at Mervo, continued his football career at St. Augustine’s College in Raleigh, N.C. The 5-foot-9 running back left St. Augustine’s with the school’s career rushing record and became the Falcons’ first 1,000-yard season rusher in the modern era last year.

George Petrides doesn't remember the first varsity football game he coached at City College in 1975. Years from now, however, he'll probably still remember his 387th. Not only did the No. 14 Knights overcome a 14-point deficit to beat Mervo, 20-14, in overtime Thursday, but the victory gave Petrides his 250th career win. “It means I've been here a long time, first of all,” said Petrides with a laugh after the win. “I've appreciated every moment of it. I have loved coaching football at City College and working with these young men. You couldn't ask for a better life.” At 250-136-1, Petrides has more wins than any other active coach in the Baltimore area and ranks second in Maryland behind Good Counsel's Bob Milloy, who is 380-110-2.

City quarterback Troy Robinson has no problem throwing a high pass to receiver Julius Harvey. He trusts that his 6-foot-2 teammate will haul it in. Harvey did just that in the final minutes of Thursday's game at Mervo. Mustangs' defensive back DaShawn Flythe, who had already intercepted Robinson once, stayed tight on the receiver, but Harvey turned and reached over Flythe to make the game-saving grab on the 38-yard pass. Harvey's catch, on fourth-and-27, set up Tayshawn Mayo's 2-yard touchdown run to tie the game at 14. In overtime, Robinson converted a 1-yard, fourth-down quarterback sneak to give the No. 14 Knights a 20-14 victory in a Baltimore City Division I game for coach George Petrides' 250 th career victory.
