At 68, Roy Hilton still enjoys fooling people. "They come up to me and think I'm an old basketball player. I like that," said Hilton, who, at 6-foot-6, was one of the tallest Baltimore Colts of his day. He fooled people in other ways, back then. The Colts' 15th round draft pick in 1965, Hilton surprised everyone by making the team at defensive end and lasting 11 years in the NFL. And in Baltimore's 16-13 victory in Super Bowl V, he surprised Dallas by roaring past its All-Pro tackle, Ralph Neely, and sacking Cowboys' quarterback Craig Morton twice before halftime.

If the 2009 Gilman graduate is to claim a spot as an undrafted rookie free agent on the Ravens' final 53-man roster at the end of the preseason, it can't be in the way Roy Hilton joined the Baltimore Colts as a defensive end in 1965. At least, not exactly. "Now I'm at a totally different position," Copeland said recently after practice at the Under Armour Performance Center, where the former Penn defensive end is trying out as a middle linebacker.

Ever since their season ended, former Towson quarterback Grant Enders and wide receiver Gerrard Sheppard have been honing their timing with a regular series of throwing sessions.

Sheppard agreed to terms on a three-year contract, while Enders is attending the minicamp on a tryout.

Kevin Mackey surveyed the room filled with former Baltimore Colts who'd come to pay homage to his late father, John Mackey, and shook his head. "I'm blown away," he said. "The fact that all of these players would show up tells me that they had a lot of respect for my dad, both on and off the field. " John Mackey, the Colts great tight end and Pro Football Hall of Famer, died July 6 of frontotemporal dementia. He was 69. Thursday night, Mackey's family received friends and fans at the Burgee-Henss-Seitz Funeral Home, where more than a dozen of his former teammates came to pay their respects to the man who transformed the game, both as an explosive receiver and as the strong-willed president of the National Football League Players Association.

The most noticeable difference at Memorial Stadium last night was the fan-friendly Sony JumboTron positioned at the open end of the stadium for replays and game highlights.There was no video board last year in Baltimore's first season in the Canadian Football League.But that was one of three big items in a state-funded renovation of the stadium for the Baltimore Football Club in the off-season. The other improvements were a new surface on the field and an upgrade in locker rooms.According to Jim Speros, general partner of the BFC, the state spent more than $800,000 making those improvements.

As the crowd filed into the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen to attend Art Donovan's funeral mass one man lingered on the church steps, a Baltimore Colts jersey on his back and his little dog, Max, at his side. “I live nearby and came to pay my respects,” said George Faber, 42. “Not many folks had the magnetism Artie had; I can count them on one hand. He just made you want to be around him, even when he's gone.” Nearly 800 people, including a number of his football teammates, gathered Friday to pay homage to Donovan, the Colts' Hall of Fame defensive tackle and raconteur who died Sunday, at 89, of a respiratory ailment.
