REGINA, Saskatchewan -- When he was young, Mike Pringle didn't dream of playing professional football, but he quickly found out how much he loved the contact that came with the game.So what if he was breaking the rules by hitting people. He couldn't help it, even at the age of 8."The first football trophy I ever got was in 1975, in a flag football league," said Pringle, 28. "I used to tackle people all of the time, and after that one year, they didn't want me to play anymore. I guess I was a little too physical."

He beat out Baltimore running back Mike Pringle by a vote of 33-19."All I know is, Mike Pringle rebounds from anything," said CFLs linebacker Matt Goodwin.

When he was younger and making a splash as one of the Canadian Football League's more dynamic quarterbacks, the losses and the mistakes would eat at Tracy Ham.How much has he grown up over his productive, nine-year career? When he played in his first Grey Cup in 1990 with the Edmonton Eskimos, Ham remembers being crushed by the defeat, a feeling he had trouble shaking long after the final gun sounded.Ham recalled a similar feeling in the aftermath of last year's Grey Cup. He played his worst game of an otherwise fine 1994 season with Baltimore, throwing two interceptions and losing a critical fumble, all of which contributed to British Columbia's last-second 26-23 victory.

Rookie Louis Fite has touched the ball twice in his professional career. But Sunday, he will be the Stallions' starting running back.Trying to avoid an injury to Canadian Football League-leading rusher Mike Pringle in their regular-season finale, the Stallions yesterday named Fite as their starter.Pringle, who has a 500-yard cushion over second-place Cory Philpot in the league rushing race with one game remaining, would not comment on the move. It has not been determined whether Pringle will see any playing time Sunday against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

So much for the appetizers. Starting last night, the Baltimore CFLs were chewing on the meat of their schedule. In a seven-week stretch, they play five games against Western Division teams.Sacramento was the first of two in a row against the West. Next Sunday, the CFLs play the Saskatchewan Roughriders in Regina, the previous coaching job of Baltimore's Don Matthews. The Roughriders are 5-0 at home this year.It is perhaps no coincidence that 10 of Baltimore's 12 CFL veterans have played with Western Division teams.

SHREVEPORT, La. -- The Baltimore Stallions pride themselves on strong special teams, and in Friday's 24-17 victory over the Shreveport Pirates, they were at their finest in that phase of the game.Start with the team's most valuable legs. Kicker Carlos Huerta, the Canadian Football League's leading scorer, made three of four field-goal attempts to help the Stallions take a 24-3 lead after three quarters.Punter Josh Miller, also the league's best, made his biggest impact in the first half. Miller, who averaged 57 yards on five punts in the half, ruined the Pirates' field position repeatedly.
