Aberdeen senior Rudi Johnson had heard about Tameka McDonald not long after Johnson's family moved to Harford County from Delaware. "People were telling me about some girl who was really good at basketball and I wanted to meet her," said Johnson, then a 12-year-old Aberdeen Middle School student. Encouraged by a friend, Johnson approached McDonald during gym class at the middle school. The two found that they shared many common interests and have been fast friends since. They have also formed quite the tandem on the basketball court.

The senior quarterback threw for three touchdowns in the final five minutes to rally the No. 2 Eagles from 19 points down to a 27-26 victory over Georgetown Prep in a Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference game Friday. Johnson, who has committed to Buffalo, hit Gabe Macis for the game-tying 34-yard strike with 22 seconds left, and Sam Eby provided the winning point after. With his fourth touchdown pass of the game, Johnson was 23-for-35 for 335 yards. He has season totals of 1,501 passing yards with 18 touchdowns and 350 rushing yards with five touchdowns.

Play of the week Rudi Johnson -- Cincinnati vs. Cleveland. Stop the run or the pass? The Browns' defense will be hard-pressed to contain either in Cincinnati. Johnson has 1,066 yards and nine touchdowns on the season and ran for 202 yards and two scores against the Browns in a 58-48 win last year. Position analysis Quarterback Starting nod -- Brad Johnson, Minnesota vs. St. Louis. The veteran has become a more-than-viable fantasy option who should post big numbers against a weak St. Louis defense.

CINCINNATI - When the lingering smoke from a pre-game fireworks display finally lifted moments before kickoff, a new era dawned at Paul Brown Stadium yesterday. The sorry, ramshackle Cincinnati Bengals had vacated the premises. In their place was the braggadocio of Chad Johnson, the big-play ability of Peter Warrick, the inspiration of Rudi Johnson and the resiliency of a gritty defense. Meet the team that Marvin Lewis built. Introductions were in order after the Bengals terminated the Kansas City Chiefs' run at a perfect season with a hard-earned, 24-19 upset, handing Kansas City (9-1)

Though the Ravens usually handled Corey Dillon, they appear to like their chances even more against the Cincinnati Bengals' new featured back, Rudi Johnson. Cincinnati decided to go with Johnson this offseason, trading the disgruntled Dillon to the New England Patriots. Last season, the Ravens held Johnson to 15 yards on seven carries. "They have Rudi Johnson, who has made a couple of good plays here or there, but I don't know if I would put him up there with Corey Dillon just yet," Ravens inside linebacker Ray Lewis said.

INSIDE SLANT George Kokinis, the Ravens' pro personnel director, sizes up the Bengals: Strength of offense Right side of the offensive line. There's a lot of meat with right guard Bobbie Williams (330 pounds) and right tackle Willie Anderson (340). The field tilts a little bit with them. But they move pretty well and come off the ball strong. Last week against Cleveland, they opened some nice lanes for running back Rudi Johnson. They do as solid of a job in the passing game, too, which allows Cincinnati to be balanced.

As the temperature drops, the grass fields become worn and the footballs, fighting sleet and snow, don't sail through the air as easily, Cincinnati Bengals running back Rudi Johnson couldn't be more pleased. This, Johnson flatly states, is his time of year. "Everybody knows that is one of the strong parts in my game. ... I get stronger as the season goes on, as well as the game goes on," Johnson said. "We could use the weather to our advantage with me running the ball inside." Johnson serves as the wild card for the otherwise finesse Bengals (7-3)

GIRLS BASKETBALL PLAYER OF THE YEAR Tameka McDonald Aberdeen, senior There were players in the county who made it look easier and prettier, but nobody did it better than McDonald. The fearless, 5-foot-1 point guard slashed her way to a league-leading 16.8 points a game and handed out two assists per game, combining with senior forward Rudi Johnson to form the most formidable duo in the area. Hardly one-dimensional, Johnson, a second-team selection last year, was also a force on the defensive end, recording four steals and five rebounds a game, often starting the Eagles' transition game.

As far as the Ravens are concerned, any talk about the Kansas City Chiefs' offense begins and ends with running back Larry Johnson. The Ravens have faced other quality backs this season, such as Pittsburgh's Willie Parker and Cincinnati's Rudi Johnson. They also handled the league's top runner and player in San Diego's LaDainian Tomlinson, thanks in part to the conservative approach of Chargers coach Marty Schottenheimer. But Larry Johnson is the prototype for big backs. He is that rare combination of power and speed who might someday scratch the surface of the group that includes Jim Brown and Earl Campbell.
