If there was a lesson to be learned at the mule pull and mule jump at the Howard County Fair, it was this: If a mule doesn't want to do something, it won't. In the dusty ring Saturday morning, farmers called mules, cajoled them and even tried to dizzy them by leading them in circles. Some farmers jumped up in the air to encourage the beasts to leap over a plastic bar; the mules paid them no mind. "Mules are a lot different than horses," said Mary Streaker, who, along with her husband, Howard, organized the mule pull at the fair for the past five years.

When Devin Redd thinks of Lawrence Cager, his mind goes back to the summer before Cager's freshman year at Calvert Hall. There, during July summer workouts, in his red shorts, white T-shirt and black Nike shoes, he ran routes and caught passes alongside guys who would go on to play Division I football. Redd, then the wide receivers coach at Calvert Hall, was mesmerized by Cager's size and athletic ability. But he was confused when he found out Cager wanted to be a kicker. "I said, 'Nah, man, you're not a kicker,' " Redd recalled.
