The quaint, two-bedroom apartment Antoine and Anthony Smithson share in Salt Lake City could not be more different than home. The brothers grew up on the corner of The Alameda and 29th Street in Northeast Baltimore, on a block where many of the houses have overgrown lawns and bushes cluttering yards that are no wider or longer than the 10 yards any football team needs to get a first down. In that neighborhood, Antoine — who usually goes by Shaky — and Anthony knew to be wary.

It has been nearly a month since Douglass senior Antione Smithson learned the painful news that his football season had ended prematurely. That's 26 days since the Ducks were forced to forfeit their nine wins, their Baltimore City League Division II title and the program's first state playoff berth because of their use of an academically ineligible player. "While the football season was going on, there was a lot of school spirit," said Smithson, 17, a star defensive back, running back, quarterback, kicker and return specialist.

The Baltimore football all-stars had something to prove against the Washington all-stars yesterday in the Baltimore-Washington Parkway Classic. Last year's football team was clobbered by Washington, and Baltimore had yet to get a victory in the three other sports in this year's classic. But Baltimore's football squad avenged last year's loss and gave the home crowd something to cheer for with a 19-13 victory at Poly-Western High School. Patterson running back Tony Smithson won offensive MVP for Baltimore and Walbrook's George Washington was the defensive MVP. Howard Gilmore (Woodson)

Carver coach Ron Frierson called Douglass' Antione Smithson "an excellent player" after watching him almost single-handedly beat his visiting Bears, 13-6, yesterday. The 6-foot-2, 185-pound senior quarterback/defensive back had a game-high 85 rushing yards. He also passed for 185 yards and tossed a 31-yard touchdown to Sheldon Waller in the second quarter. Smithson booted an extra point, and, defensively, ripped the ball from the hands of a Carver running back before going 85 yards, untouched, into the end zone to give his team a 13-0 lead in the fourth quarter.

His nickname is "Shaky," but Antione Smithson has been nothing but steady so far for this year's Fredrick Douglass football team. The 6-foot-1, 185-pounder showed as much during an interdivisional, 14-6 loss to Baltimore City rival City College on Sept. 23. That's when Smithson matched up against the Knights' Sheldon Bell in a showdown of two of the city's premier wide receivers. "I had a really hard practice that week to prepare for him," said Smithson, who had 27 receptions for 874 yards and nine touchdowns last season.

With less than a minute left in regulation, Ben Love was thwarted by Parkside goalie Mike Chubb on what might have been the game-winner. But the Winters Mill sophomore was determined not to blow his shot at history. Love's clincher off Sean Smithson's pass 42 seconds into the four-minute overtime secured a 7-6 victory for the 13th-ranked Falcons (19-0) and the fourth-year varsity program's first Class 2A-1A state title last night at UMBC in their initial championship berth.

"In memory of William Smithson, who departed this life January 17, 1809, aged 64 years." This is the inscription on the tombstone once located in a family graveyard along the southeast border of Bel Air between the Fulford and Homestead farms. One of the signers of the Bush Declaration - Harford County's "Declaration of Independence" - Smithson was born in 1745 and built the Fernandis Homestead in Bel Air. The 1774 home was considered to "compare favorably with the best of our modern dwellings," by Walter Preston in 1901.

Despite his team's sluggish start, Liberty's Matt Latham knew the inevitable would only take a matter of time last night in a key Carroll County boys lacrosse game at Winters Mill. "Once we start clicking ... once we settle it down, we can play and get what we're looking for," Latham said. "That's when we get the shots." Latham took his share, scoring three goals to go along with two assists to help the Lions rally from two early deficits to grind out a 9-8 win. The game was the first for the Lions (7-1 overall, 3-0 county)

James Walker's 13-foot jumper and Antoine Smithson's steal in the final nine seconds gave the No. 8 Douglass boys basketball team a 69-68 victory over No. 10 Dunbar yesterday at Baltimore City Community College. "I never got a chance to beat Dunbar," said Smithson. "I had four fouls when I got the steal and the coaches told me not to reach for it, but I saw it and just dove and took it." The visiting Poets (11-5) led for most of the game - their largest lead was 10 in the third quarter - but couldn't hold off the Ducks in the fourth quarter.
