Five years ago, Australian filmmaker Michael Rubbo fell in love with the rabid, often bruising debate over who "really" wrote the works of Shakespeare. A friend gave him a dog-eared copy of The Man Who Was Shakespeare, an out-of-print work by American author Calvin Hoffman, which laid out a theory as bracing as it was bizarre. In Hoffman's view, Christopher Marlowe - a real-life playwright and contemporary of the Bard's - faked his own death in 1593, fled to Italy and spent the rest of his life perpetrating the greatest literary hoax of all time.

One football maxim says that you can't win without speed.Oakland Mills (3-2 overall, 3-1 league) is proving that speed is not essential, however, if you have two big running backs like Vinnie Rubbo and Gregg Kellett.In a battle of second-place teams yesterday at Oakland Mills, the Scorpions wore down the smaller Raiders to win easily, 36-3.Oakland Mills tailback Rubbo, at 6-0, 185 pounds, rushed 29 times for 198 yards and five touchdowns. The Scorpions fullback, 6-foot-4, 220-pound Kellett, ran nine times for 53 yards.

Tailback Vinnie Rubbo rushed 35 times for 174 yards and his 12th touchdown. Fullback Gregg Kellett rushed nine times for 71 yards and two touchdowns.Just another typical day for the Oakland Mills Scorpions as they defeated guest Hammond, 22-12? Not quite. Injuries and illnesses are becoming a critical factor for Oakland Mills.The Scorpions (4-3 overall, 4-2 league) suited up just 18 players after losing a starting tight end and starting cornerback to knee injuries two weeks ago.Kellett, who leads Rubbo's blocks, missed practice all week and was an uncertain starter until game time.

One thing that has distinguished the Oakland Mills football team this season is its ability to win the close games.The Scorpions (10-1), who await Saturday's state Class 1A state semifinal showdown with Cambridge (10-1), have won four games by one touchdown or less.A crucial, late-season 7-6 win over Howard by stopping a two-point conversion with 36 seconds left gave the Scorpions a second seed, keeping them home through the semifinals."It's a big deal for us to be playing at Oakland Mills this Saturday and for Cambridge to have to take a two-hour bus ride," Scorpions coach Ken Hovet said.

A year ago, Oakland Mills' Andrew Long finished third in the shot put at the state indoor track meet.That shouldn't happen this season.The 6-foot-2, 225-pound senior is favored to win his first indoorstate championship Monday at the Class 1A-2A meet at the 5th Regiment Armory. "He's already 2 feet better than anybody else," said Oakland Mills coach Sam Singleton. Long acknowledges that if one goes only by numbers alone he's the one to beat.

He carried the ball 31 times in Thursday's 7-6 loss to Long Reach.Five days earlier he carried 29 times in a victory against Atholton. He also plays linebacker and is one of Oakland Mills' leading tacklers.Normally Rubbo has seven days between games for his sore muscles to recover and some of his bruises to heal, but Howard County pushed last week's games ahead two days to honor the Jewish holy day of Yom Kippur.
