COLLEGE PARK -- Maryland coach Randy Edsall made a deal with Will Ulmer before the highly touted athlete signed with the Terps in February. "I told Will during the recruiting process that he'll be a quarterback until he comes to me and tells me he doesn't want to be a quarterback,” Edsall said. For now, Ulmer, who was ranked as a four-star athlete by ESPN, remains focused on playing quarterback. Ulmer practiced strictly as a quarterback during the first week of Maryland's preseason practice.

"I have very fond memories," Edsall said this week as the Terps (5-3, 1-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) prepared for the Orange (4-4, 2-2 ACC)

Shawn Jones flitted out of the NFL last month, eager to take his chances in the Canadian Football League as a reborn quarterback.Yesterday, he was rewarded for the risk.When the CFL Colts cut reserves Mike Pawlawski and Bobby Goodman, Jones assumed the role of third quarterback. That means he has a spot on the 10-man practice squad behind Tracy Ham and John Congemi. And it suits Jones just fine."At some point in life, you've got to pay dues," Jones, 24, said. "I'm paying my dues, so to speak."

Freshman Lamar Owens has an abundance of physical gifts. He has the speed to avoid tacklers and the toughness to make big plays in Navy's option offense. It's not hard to see why he was recruited out of Benedictine High in Savannah, Ga., to play quarterback at the academy. But can Owens help the Midshipmen now, instead of two years from now? That's the question Navy coach Paul Johnson is asking himself this week. Owens saw the first action of his college career against Air Force on Saturday, returning two kickoffs and playing quarterback during garbage time in a 48-7 loss.

Gilman's Kai Locksley was invited to take part in Football University's Top Gun camp in Ohio this week, but the rising junior said he would not attend the clinic as he continues to prepare for his fall debut as the Greyhounds' quarterback. “We were really excited and honored to be invited to a camp like that,” Locksley said Tuesday, “but we decided just to visit some colleges and focus on some one-on-one footwork things back here.” Locksley, the son of Maryland offensive coordinator Mike Locksley, said campus destinations this summer include North Carolina, Florida State and “possibly” Texas A&M. The 6-foot-4, 190-pound Locksley - who played as a wide receiver with Shane Cockerille at quarterback for Gilman last year - has said he has offers from Florida State, Maryland, Michigan, Michigan State, North Carolina, Pittsburgh, Rutgers and Temple.

COLLEGE PARK - In March 2010, the boy's basketball coach at Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Prince George's County found himself suddenly shorthanded in double-overtime of a playoff game against Wise. His frontcourt thinned by injuries and foul trouble, coach Brendan O'Connell turned to a bulky sophomore backup - Shawn Petty - who had played little during the regular season. "I think most sophomores would have just panicked," O'Connell said. But what struck O'Connell is how unfazed Petty seemed.

They share uncommon rookie success, powerful right arms and a proclivity for staying cool in the most intense moments. Joe Flacco has taken the January journey that made Ben Roethlisberger famous as a rookie in 2004, turning heads and defenses along the way. Heading into Sunday's AFC championship game in Pittsburgh, some have even portrayed Flacco, the Ravens' quarterbacking prodigy, as the second coming of Roethlisberger, the pulse of the Steelers' offense...

Garrett Weinhold played a major role in helping Fallston's football team earn the school's first postseason berth this year. The 5-foot-11, 170-pound senior had been a running back, but he moved to quarterback and guided the team's offense to success this season. Fallston went 7-3 in the regular season, and Weinhold had a hand in 22 touchdowns. He's also drawn a lot of interest from colleges, most of whom see him as a slotback because of his speed and good hands. Weinhold also wrestles and plays baseball for Fallston but mainly wants to play football in college, and possibly coach later on. Were you surprised when the coaches asked you to play quarterback for the first time?

As sports relics go, it is nondescript: a 3-inch vinyl wristband covered with tiny writing. Visitors to the Pro Football Hall of Fame are apt to walk right past it to gawk at the more inviting lore displayed nearby. Hey, Dad, check out the size 19 Hall of Fame ring worn by Bronko Nagurski! And look at this square-toed kicking shoe that belonged to some dude named Agajanian - it says here he had one toe on his right foot! Though a less obtrusive keepsake, the brown wristband represents a seminal moment in the rich history of the Baltimore Colts.

As bad as Florida State knocked around Maryland quarterback Scott McBrien on Saturday night in a 35-10 win, it was nothing compared to the way he beat himself up after the game when speaking to the media. "I just didn't do my job," said McBrien, who finished 6-for-18 for 61 yards against the Seminoles. "If I don't play well, we don't play well as an offense. Tonight should have been totally different. ... I've got to play. I can't go on performing like this. I put this all on my shoulders.
