Greg Kyler is one of seven reasons Tennessee is so strong at wide receiver.The redshirt freshman out of Poly, possibly the fastest player on the Volunteers, caught five passes for 95 yards against Mississippi State, three for first downs. He has seven catches for 110 yards for the Vols, who are seven deep at wide receiver. There's not a senior in the bunch."Kyler can pressure the corners with his speed," said receivers coach Pat Washington. "If you sit on his routes, he'll run right by you. And when he runs by you, I don't think you can catch him."

Offense -- He can hit anything. What makes him such a good hitter is that he can use all fields. He doesn't have the optimum amount of power for a first baseman but he can be a Mark Grace-type hitter. Defense -- He is very smooth. He has very soft hands and can make saves. He's very stylish, like Keith Hernandez without the range. His range is a little suspect, but I think there is potential there. Overall -- Adrian has a chance to win a batting title and a Gold Glove. He's that kind of player.

Redskins RB Clinton Portis vs. Ravens LB Ray Lewis Portis has great vision and makes cuts easily. He is a threat out of the backfield as a receiver and is one of the best blockers in the NFL among running backs. He is tough and a workhorse. Lewis, after a slight decline, has had strong back-to-back seasons. He is running well sideline to sideline and is one of the best tacklers in the league. Edge:: Lewis: Redskins WR Santana Moss vs. Ravens CB Samari Rolle Moss can flat-out fly. He is basically Derrick Mason with speed.

One in a series of occasional articles on Michael Phelps and his path to the 2004 Olympics. The late Doc Counsilman was a World War II pilot before he revolutionized swimming. He applied physics to the sport, but in addition to lift and drag and force vectors, Counsilman instructed his fellow coaches to consider dog breeding. Recruit Labrador retrievers, not dachshunds. The big dog is a natural swimmer, quickly learning to pick up his hind feet and swim with the front.

Chargers OLB Shawne Merriman vs. Ravens LT Jared Gaither Gaither (above right) is athletic, and his long arms keep pass rushers away from his body. His work ethic is questionable. He struggled last week in the opener against the Kansas City Chiefs. Merriman hasn't completely recovered from a knee injury. He still has a good burst but not the same quickness he once had. Merriman can play with finesse or power. Edge: Merriman: Chargers TE Antonio Gates vs. Ravens LBs Jarret Johnson and Tavares Gooden The Chargers like to isolate Gates (above)

We have countless awesome sports photos in the archives here at The Baltimore Sun , and I have decided to share one with you each week in a regular feature called "Throwback Thursday. " With former Baltimore Colts tight end John Mackey passing away Wednesday, I decided to dig through the archives for pictures. Unfortunately, I don’t think electricity had been invented when Mackey played because I couldn’t find any action photos besides the one we are using on The Baltimore Sun online sports page.

BOYS Dan Stone, Westminster SPORT FOOTBALL STATS -- A dominating presence on Westminster's offensive line, the 6-foot-3, 300-pound Stone has ably protected record-setting quarterback Kevin Clancy and opened holes for running back Ryan Finch this season, helping his team average more than 40 points per game. Defensively, he had 54 tackles, three sacks and two fumble recoveries despite usually facing double teams. SIDELINES -- Despite Stone's accomplishments on offense and defense, coach Brad Wilson said that he was most impressed with the 300-pounder's ability to lead the way on Finch's 90-yard kickoff return in the regional finals against Seneca Valley.
