Since his death several weeks ago, I've received a number of calls and e-mails from former students of Tom Longstreth, the celebrated St. Paul's School English teacher and coach, who was a much-beloved figure on the school's Brooklandville campus for 41 years. Tom was also my former neighbor and a prolific daily walker who could be seen striding along the streets of Riderwood, ramrod-straight and wearing his trademark khaki pants and blue button-down Oxford cloth shirt. In the warm months, he'd add a crumpled tennis hat to his wardrobe, his only concession to the elements.

The Maryland team was already ranked among the best in the nation, and the season was about to begin. The mood was light, conversation strayed from one subject to another until - these were high school boys - the talk turned to sex. Laughter broke out as one player recalled a scene from the movie "American Pie" in which a high school student films himself having sex with an unsuspecting girl and broadcasts it over the Internet.

Her uniquely low voice struck a chord with the crowd, and their overwhelming response sparked an interest that later led McEwan to pursue a career in music.
