Bobby Beale has been lined up at almost every football position imaginable since be began playing the game in the midget leagues.He has been an offensive guard, a tight end, a linebacker, a free safety and a running back.It just seems that most football coaches don't know where to play Beale, whose body is always one of the smallest on the team but whose heart is big enough for the whole team.That heart has helped propel the 5-foot-7, 160-pound Glen Burnie senior running back to some big numbers this fall.

It's as though Dave Rigot is a contestant in a game show, rather than the head football coach at Glen Burnie.Let's call this, "Which Passer Is Right?"The object is to choose a quarterback who will open the season as your starter. The players up for bid include two returnees to the varsity in senior Dave Brewster and sophomore Rocky Newton, and two newcomers in junior Matt Shiring and #i sophomore Jay Sponaugle.Before making your selection, keep in mind that Newton burst onto the scene last year as a freshman defensive back, grabbing three interceptions and earning high praise from the coaching staff.

Last year, Glen Burnie hung in the Anne Arundel County Class AAAA race until the eighth week. Then, lopsided losses to Severna Park and Old Mill knocked the Gophers from contention.Both coach Dave Rigot and his players say that things could be a lot different this time around.Last night, a Glen Burnie (3-0 league, 5-1) team that Rigot called "just plain hungry" stayed atop the league race with a 16-0 victory over visiting Meade.The Gophers used Dan Whitmoyer's 31-yard field goal and a 44-yard touchdown pass from Carlton Ash to Lee Kinzler to build a 9-0 lead before the rains came at halftime.

As a result, Dave Rigot returned as Glen Burnie football coach, and Mark Frye was hired at Meade.Nobody was happier than North County head football coach Chuck Markiewicz that Wilson stayed on as Knights' defensive coordinator.Glen Burnie could not guarantee a teaching position, and Meade, Wilson's alma mater, could not assure the classroom situation from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. he had in Ferndale.
