The preseason has taught Joe Flacco some vital lessons, from understanding how to take care of the football to dealing with surprise starts. What the rookie quarterback will learn next is how the Ravens will continue his education. Do you give him the ball to start the season opener? Or do you hand him the clipboard and tell him to observe from the sideline? There is no question in Flacco's mind. Asked whether he felt ready to start the season opener, he responded without hesitation, "Yes."

With Coppin State's men's basketball team set to open its first official practice Monday afternoon under new coach Michael Grant, some of the Eagles had trouble getting a full night of sleep Sunday. "I went to sleep around 4 and woke up around 10. So I only had six hours. I was geared up and ready to go," said senior guard Taariq Cephas. Senior forward Dallas Gary had the a similar experience. "I was pretty anxious for the first day just because it's going to be fun and it's going to be a new system," he said.

VS. HARTFORD WHALERS* WHEN: Tonight, 7:35.* WHERE: Capital Centre.* TV/RADIO: HTS; WCAO-AM 600.* OUTLOOK: The Caps' (31-32-6) sudden surge of weekend road wins in Winnipeg and Edmonton has landed them in a tie for the fourth and final playoff position in the Patrick Division. A victory in tonight's game in hand over New Jersey (28-30-12) ensures the Caps sole possession of the slot and would leave them just one point behind Philadelphia (31-30-9) for third place. They appear to have a willing opponent -- the Whalers are 0-6-3 in their last nine games.

From the time she learned that her husband had lost his legs in an explosion in Afghanistan's Helmand province until noon Saturday, Morgan Kessler felt as though her world was turning in circles. "It never felt real," she said. But moments before she entered her new home, built by Homes for Our Troops, she felt she finally saw a straight path ahead. "It is so much weight lifted off our shoulders," she said, crying. "Our lives will finally start over. Thank you so, so, so, so much.

Injured right fielder Jeffrey Hammonds made his first appearance at Camden Yards in quite some time yesterday, and scoffed at a report that he is done for the season.A recent published report quoted an unnamed Orioles source as saying Hammonds was out for the year."I haven't heard anything like that," Hammonds said. "I asked Dr. [Michael] Jacobs, and he didn't say anything like that. I haven't been told anything like that by anybody."Hammonds is eligible to come off the disabled list tomorrow, but he will not be ready to play by then.

Only two in five Maryland children are fully prepared to tackle the rigors of kindergarten, according to the state's first-ever survey of 5-year-olds' school readiness. State officials said the survey - released yesterday at a joint Senate and House hearing in Annapolis - demonstrates the need for more money and programs for children from birth through prekindergarten, including better educational training of private child care providers. "I think these results confirm what I've been saying: that the preparation of our children to enter school is mediocre," said state schools Superintendent Nancy S. Grasmick.

ATLANTA -- The last roster decision facing the Orioles involves retaining either second baseman Jerry Hairston or outfielder Wayne Kirby, with momentum heavily in the young infielder's favor. With vice president of baseball operations Syd Thrift and manager Mike Hargrove scheduled to meet after this afternoon's exhibition against the Cincinnati Reds in Chattanooga, Tenn., Hairston stands a "95 percent chance" of making the Opening Day roster, according to a club official. Thrift conceded Kirby would likely be reassigned to Triple-A Rochester immediately after tomorrow's workout at Camden Yards.

IF YESTERDAY'S headline is true and Sam Perlozzo is a good bet to return in 2006, the Orioles should give him the freedom to start developing the team he is going to manage. That means letting him play guys who will or at least might be here, as opposed to those who won't. Sammy Sosa? With his .223 average, 84 hits, 83 strikeouts and expiring contract, he is certain not to return. Enough already with the failed experiment. Let's see Nick Markakis get some starts when the roster expands in September.

The revolving door has spun around once again in Cleveland, revealing yet another quarterback change for the Browns. For Sunday's game against the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium, Jason Campbell steps under center to start an NFL regular-season game for the first time since 2011. The 31-year-old replaces demoted starter Brandon Weeden , who was uninspiring in his chance to reclaim his grip on the job following Bryan Hoyer 's season-ending knee injury.

Adam Borgogelli made 13 saves on 24 shots in Mount St. Mary's 12-11 upset of then-No. 17 Bucknell Sunday. So it would seem to make sense that the sophomore goalkeeper will get the nod against Delaware this Saturday, right? Not so fast, according to coach Tom Gravante. Borgogelli got the start against the Bison after beating out freshmen Will Rego and Frankie McCarthy and junior Chris Klaiber in daily evaluations last week, and Gravante liked the competition so much that he's instituting the same drills this week.

Frostburg State's season opener against Catholic is 16 days away, and that delayed start may actually benefit the team. That's because the competition to designate a starting goalkeeper is too close to call. Junior Tyler Haines and freshmen Taylor Schmitz, Mack Schwarz and Tom Kraemer have yet to create any room from the others, making it more interesting - and potentially more difficult - for coach Tommy Pearce and his staff. “We've got three freshman goalies that are good,” he said.

Keenan Reynolds started his first game as a freshman in high school outside Nashville, Tenn., so the news that he was going to become the first freshman to start at quarterback for Navy in more than two decades doesn't seem like that big a deal to him. "There's probably going to be some pre-game jitters, but again it's the same game that I've been playing since I was small," Reynolds said. "I've got to remember that, put my emotions to the side and focus and do my job for my teammates.

It's hard not to notice Stefon Diggs' hands. They are so large they appear almost mismatched - as if they should be attached to a much larger body. The Maryland wide receiver's hands can fit comfortably into "3X" gloves. Most receivers don't wear anything larger than size "2X. " On Monday, Diggs fidgeted and cracked his knuckles as he sat in the Gossett Football Team House auditorium answering media questions as the Terps opened preseason training camp. For one afternoon, the 6-foot, 188-pound freshman looked like he didn't know what to do with his hands.

Entering the program's third year of existence, the St. Frances' football team is, in a sense, starting over. After the Panthers' first coach, Mike Clay, left the team with three games remaining in the 2009 season, the program needed a change in direction. So far, the hiring of Joseph Garner has accomplished that. "He's very energetic, hard working and is building a rapport with the kids," St. Frances athletic director Nick Myles said. "He's a private-school alumni and he's an educator.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- It is becoming another disconcerting spring for Baltimore Orioles pitching ace Ben McDonald, whose physical condition has become an issue for the second year in a row.McDonald had to be scratched from his scheduled start against the Montreal Expos yesterday.

It has beenbothering him for the past couple of weeks, which leaves room to wonder whether he will be ready to start April 8 against the Chicago White Sox on Opening Day at Memorial Stadium.

Maryland, which finished 21-14 last season and advanced to the second round of the NCAA tournament, recently was ranked 26th in the Associated Press preseason rankings.
