Former Major League Soccer midfielder Santino Quaranta has spoken before about a story that is both disturbing and uplifting — signing with MLS when he was 16, battling abuse of cocaine and painkillers, becoming sober, returning to the game and playing for his country. But Quaranta said Tuesday's speech to about 650 Baltimore-area high school athletes was special. It was the largest crowd to hear his deeply personal message. It was delivered near where he was raised (he attended Archbishop Curley)

Santino Quaranta has had no need for an alarm clock. His three younger brothers have made enough noise getting ready for school early in the morning to get him stirring. About the time they have been heading out of the family's Highlandtown home, it has been time for him to get out of bed. With summer here, Quaranta is on his own getting up for work. Soccer is his career now and D.C. United, which used the eighth pick in February's Major League Soccer's SuperDraft to select him, is his employer.

Early in the first overtime of a scoreless game, Loyola goalkeeper Shawn Huth dived to his right to save a well-struck, close-range shot by visiting Archbishop Curley's Brandon Quaranta.It was one of eight saves by Huth, but the one he said was his best. It also was the defining moment in an entertaining, physical game that left both sides frustrated with a 0-0 outcome.No. 5 Loyola (5-0-2 overall, 3-0-1 in Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference) was frustrated by No. 3 Curley's ability to disrupt its short passing game; Curley was frustrated with its inability to finish numerous scoring chances -- especially in the final 20 minutes of regulation and two overtimes, all of which the Friars dominated.

Santino Quaranta had a hunch D.C. United wouldn't exercise the option on his contract, but he did think the club for which he had played 10 of his 11 Major League Soccer seasons would try to retain him with a reduced salary. Instead, he said, he didn't hear anything from United officials until midday Tuesday when coach Ben Olsen called him from a scouting trip in Europe. Quaranta wouldn't return to the club, Olsen told him. "I figured all along we'd get it done, regardless of whether they picked up the option," said Quaranta, a 27-year-old Archbishop Curley alumnus who earned about $120,000 this season.

Longtime D.C. United midfielder Santino Quaranta, an Archbishop Curley graduate, is retiring from MLS at age 27 to work full time with a youth soccer club he helped create and to assist a substance abuse program that helped turn around his life and career four years ago. "As a soccer player, you're expected to push it until you're 33, 34 years old," he told The Washington Post on Sunday. "That's not me. This is it. My gut and heart were telling me, and I'm at peace with it. " Quaranta, a Baltimore native who signed with MLS at age 16 and spent 10 of his 11 seasons in Washington, was let go by United last week.

School officials said Binkowski, who came to Northern Illinois from Nevada-Las Vegas in 1999, was angry over a stadium scheduling conflict with the practicing Capitol Regiment drum corps.
