In Johns Hopkins' 33-14 rout of Moravian on Sept. 20, senior quarterback Braden Anderson posted career highs in passing yards (218) and completion percentage (73.5). It took Anderson only one week to surpass those totals, throwing for 359 yards and connecting on 76.3 percent of his passes in Saturday's 42-26 victory over Centennial Conference foe Muhlenberg. Add a career-best four touchdowns, and it's easy to see why Blue Jays coach Jim Margraff called Anderson's performance the best of his career.

Fourteen seniors from The John Carroll School left from BWI Marshall Airport on May 18 for a week-long mission trip to Roatan, Honduras. They were accompanied by John Carroll teacher Jake Hollin, and his wife, Amy. The students spent a week living and working in the Roatan children's home, school and clinic, operated by Sandy Bay Lighthouse Ministries. This is part of the students' senior project, a graduation requirement that allows seniors to pursue projects that focus on potential careers, creative expression or community service.

Thanks to Amy Carroll for her insensitive approach to denying the comforts of parks and the beauty of nature to the "grays," as she calls us senior citizens ("Mays Chapel residents sue county school board over land transaction," March 28). As for the schoolchildren, only a handful actually live in the immediate area. The majority will be bused in or driven to school by a parent. The added traffic, not to mention pollution, noise and otherwise, will only lead to the further deterioration of aging lungs.

As a retiree who held his first job at age 11 and who worked and paid into Social Security for 50 years and into Medicare since it's inception, that obnoxious diatribe by William Smith is an affront to retirees everywhere ( "Who needs those lazy retirees?" Aug. 19). The generalization that retirees are takers and welfare addicts is ridiculous. Perhaps he is speaking for himself. I went to night school for 17 years and earned four degrees while raising a family and trying to create a self-sufficient retirement.

COLLEGE PARK - As a disappointing season gave way to a tumultuous offseason earlier this year, Maryland men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon waited anxiously for the start of preseason practice. With an overhauled roster and a new offense, the Terps are scheduled to begin practice Friday as they get ready for their first season in the Big Ten Conference. Maryland, which finished 17-15 in its Atlantic Coast Conference farewell and failed for the fourth straight year to make the NCAA tournament, opens the 2014-15 season Nov. 14 against Wagner.

Calvert Hall wide receiver Lawrence Cager will play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, one of the premier senior all-star football games in the country. The game will be televised live on NBC Jan. 3 from the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. Cardinals coach Donald Davis presented Cager with his invitation to the 15th annual Army Bowl on Wednesday morning and he will receive his official jersey at a school pep rally in November when the U.S. Army All-American selection tour comes to Calvert Hall.

Derrick Joseph injured his shoulder in the second quarter of Towson's 27-24 loss to Maine on Saturday night, and he did not return to the game. But the senior return specialist could return in time for Saturday's 3:30 p.m. game at Johnny Unitas Stadium against Colonial Athletic Association opponent Stony Brook. Coach Rob Ambrose said Joseph, who ranks 22nd among all Football Championship Subdivision kick returners with a 25.6-yard average and has returned a school-record four kickoffs for touchdowns, suffered “a small strain” that does not require surgery.

Scouts from the Arizona Cardinals, Oakland Raiders and Philadelphia Eagles who attended Towson's Colonial Athletic Association opener with Maine Saturday night to gauge Ryan Delaire's talent were treated to a tantalizing display. The senior defensive end matched his season total of three sacks in the Tigers' 27-24 loss. He had sacks on back-to-back plays in the third quarter and lodged his final takedown later in the same period. After getting credited with 3½ tackles in the first half, Delaire posted his three sacks and another half tackle in the second half, which occurred after a halftime discussion with coach Rob Ambrose.

The senior population will grow dramatically over the next several years and that makes proposals for accommodating the increasing numbers of older adults an important story. Yet The Sun chose not to cover Howard County executive candidate Courtney Watson's proposal for improving senior services in the county. As an active advocate on older adult issues, I am impressed with Mr. Watson's ideas and think the people of Howard County deserve to know what they are. It's ironic that The Sun, which often complains about a lack of substance in political campaigns, missed an opportunity to write about substantive proposals by a substantial candidate.

On Towson's first play from scrimmage last week against North Carolina Central, a 9-yard reception by fullback Dreon Johnson was nullified by an illegal block penalty on senior wide receiver Spencer Wilkins. Wilkins promptly got an earful from coach Rob Ambrose, but rather than take offense, the Ellicott City resident and Mount Hebron graduate found it reassuring. "Honestly, I would take more offense if the coaches weren't yelling at me, because I would feel like they don't care," Wilkins said after a practice this week.

At every stop in his young football career, undrafted rookie James Hurst hasn't had much time to settle in before being thrust into a starting role. In both high school and college, it turned out he was ready the moment he walked onto the field, and the Ravens are hoping the same proves true on Sunday when he starts in place of left tackle Eugene Monroe, who underwent knee surgery on Wednesday. "I'm going to use that [knowledge] for confidence and understanding that sure, this is a bigger stage and it's a completely different opportunity, but at the same time, the experience is similar, being a young guy and being thrust in there in a position where you're playing a really good team.
