The Baltimore Sun will follow Franklin's Steven Smothers, Gilman's Ellison Jordan and McDonogh's Eric Burrell on the recruiting trail as they try to decide over the next year which college will be the best fit. This is part one in an occasional series. Steven Smothers' cell phone started dancing just a few seconds past midnight on Sept. 1. The Franklin junior had switched his phone to vibrate, but he didn't ignore it, knowing college football coaches could begin contacting Class of 2016 prospects via text message, email and social media immediately after midnight.

Perry Hall handed Franklin a 14-point loss when the football teams met last season. The Indians remembered that defeat and earned some revenge Friday night.

Quarterback Jacquez Adams also threw for three touchdowns for the Indians. The Gators won 21-7 over Franklin last season, and after that the Indians won 10 in a row and posted the Class 3A state championship.

Poly's Sebastian Smothers doesn't fit the stereotype of a guy who's one of the better players on the area's second-ranked football team.Not only did Smothers never play a down of organized football before his freshman season, but at 5 feet 11 and 235 pounds, he often finds himself fighting an uphill battle against larger opponents as the Engineers' defensive tackle.But what Smothers lacks in massiveness, he makes up for in strength, speed and guile.Smothers employs his low center of gravity and quickness to churn past bigger adversaries.

Ex-Baltimore City police Officer Charles M. Smothers was born Feb. 2, 1968, according to his probation records. That would make him an Aquarius, for the astrologically inclined among you.Last week, Commissioner Thomas Frazier made Smothers Capricorn. As in the sign of the goat. As in scapegoat.Frazier bestowed the Royal Order of the Boot on Smothers on Friday, firing him for an April 1995 domestic violence case in which his wife insists she was not a victim. No matter. We live in an America where reality is reinterpreted at a whim.

The controversy that continues to swirl around Officer Charles Smothers' fatal shooting of James Quarles last month has, as such things inevitably must, brought forth some other issues. Let's look at some of the more interesting ones.Charles Smothers vs. O. J. Simpson: We've heard much talk over the past month about how Smothers' being charged with assault for shooting at his girlfriend's car during a domestic dispute two years ago indicated he was a loose cannon who should not have been out on the street.

The morning newspaper tells us killings are down in the city of Baltimore, not including police killings, which are all the rage these days. With "only" 209 homicides recorded so far this year, the city's on a pace for its lowest murder count in eight years. And State's Attorney Patricia C. Jessamy just took it upon herself to lower the total by one.Whatever happened at Lexington Market last month, when Officer Charles M. Smothers II fired a bullet into James Quarles and he crumpled and died in front of a video camera, it wasn't murder, Jessamy said Monday, announcing she would not take the case before a grand jury.

COLLEGE PARK - The Maryland men's lacrosse team had almost two years to stew over its last meeting with UMBC. So after Thursday's winter storm, what was another two-hour delay, anyway? The No. 11 Terps used their pent-up frustration wisely, taking advantage of a 6-0 first half to dispose of the Retrievers, 14-3, before an announced 702 Saturday at Byrd Stadium. Senior midfielder Mike Chanenchuk had a game-high five points on two goals and three assists and freshman attackman Matt Rambo scored his second hat trick in as many games in a matchup postponed two hours from its noon start to give Maryland's grounds crew more time to clear the field of snow.

The state Class 3A football championship figured to be a high-scoring affair with Franklin and Linganore averaging more than 40 points each, but defense took over early and a touchdown pass on fourth-and-20 provided the offensive jolt. Late in the third quarter, Franklin quarterback Jacquez Adams hit Steven Smothers with a 27-yard touchdown pass on that fourth-down play to give the No. 9 Indians a 14-7 edge en route to a 20-7 victory at M&T Bank Stadium for the first state football championship in school history.

Well, America survived. Yes, it's true, the United States was able to withstand two months without a labor secretary. The previous secretary, Hilda Solis, stepped down on Jan. 22. That thud you heard was no one noticing. No one noticed because, like most of the federal government, the Department of Labor has become an enormous bureaucracy machine with a life of its own that functions in spite of - and in the absence of - any individual secretary. Nevertheless, President Barack Obama has anointed her successor, one Thomas Perez, formerly head of the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation, and presently chief of the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division.

It's the first time Navy has started the season 2-0 since 2009, when the Midshipmen beat Virginia Military Institute (13-5) and Ohio State (8-6). "We had a big defensive effort tonight, and Nolan made some big saves for us," second-year Navy coach Rick Sowell said.

Charles Smothers sat in the living room of his mother's home, some two days after a Baltimore City Police Department trial board recommended that he be fired for the April 1995 incident that has made him Baltimore's poster boy for domestic violence.Sitting beside him -- clasping his hand -- was his wife, Linda. In April 1995, she was his girlfriend. Both admit they had been having a spat common to all lovers. But both insist no domestic violence took place that night. Witnesses at the trial board claim Smothers shot his gun at Michael Scott and Mrs. Smothers that night.

An announced 45,039 -- the sixth-best attendance for the semifinals -- witnessed Maryland (13-4) hit, poke and check the Blue Devils while applying a stranglehold on an offense that had entered the contest as the fifth-most prolific unit in the country.
