Freshman goalkeeper Julie Kafka is described by her Lehigh coach as "5-6 on a tall day." However, the former McDonogh standout towered over many keepers around the country this season as she recorded a school-record 12 shutouts and had Division I's second-best goals-against average (0.25) and save percentage (.955) entering postseason play last weekend. Kafka also was chosen the Co-Goalkeeper and Co-Rookie of the Year in the Patriot League as she helped lead the Mountain Hawks to their most successful regular season in school history (14-2-1 and a final 14-3-1 overall record)

The Offense Player of the Year J. T. Rembert, Oakland Mills: An impact player who set high standards, the 6-foot-2, 195-pound senior quarterback-running back-linebacker-punter was the most dominant player on the county's most dominant team. The opposition respected him greatly. "He's the real deal - a great player," said Atholton coach Kevin Kelly. "He can take the ball and make it happen. He's pretty explosive. You are pretty awed watching him on film. I'd rather have the ball in anyone's hands but his."

ASHBURN, Va. - Leave it to Washington Redskins defensive lineman Kenard Lang to give Monday night's game between the 0-4 Redskins and the 0-4 Dallas Cowboys all the pomp and circumstance it so richly deserves. "Right now, it's almost like we're in the gutter trying to get up to the curb," said Lang. "I guess [the game] is the Gutter Bowl. You've got two teams trying to climb out of it. We're trying to get on a winning streak. We have the same inspiration. Our backs are against the wall, and theirs is, too. "I'm sure their coach is telling them, `We need to get this first win to get on a winning streak,' just like Marty [Schottenheimer]

South Carroll football wasn't all Mike Dodd running behind an imposing front line that included 280-pound tackle Jamie Waltersdorff.There was a smallish, junior defensive back named Chris Lyerly, who was mainly responsible for stopping the opposition and getting the ball back to Dodd and company."

Donald Gibson might not always love his assignments, but that hasn't stopped him from performing his jobs better than most of the county's football players.Take defense. Gibson is a natural safety, one who prefers to roam the field in pass coverage or gain a head of steam before hitting a ball carrier. But Wilde Lake's coaches had Gibson pencilled in as the Wildecats' defensive signal caller and key linebacker in their 5-2 alignment."I'm not really big on being an inside linebacker, because I like to take the angle at people [from the safety position]

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Corey Harris started his first game in two seasons for the Ravens yesterday. If he seemed right at home, it's because he was. Harris played his college football here. He was a good wide receiver and running back on some bad Vanderbilt teams, and is a local community leader and businessman. When he visited the nightclub here that he holds a stake in Saturday night, he found a packed house of 250, "all in purple and gold." Yesterday, he gave the Ravens fans who ventured to Adelphia Coliseum plenty to cheer about.

Defense Player of the YearMonte Graves, St. Mary's, senior LB (6-2, 240): "I always tried to make the first big hit of the game, or I would start off by pounding the other team's center early," said Graves, who possesses at least 4.7 speed for 40 yards and set the tempo in each game for the top-ranked Saints (8-2). Graves, the first St. Mary's athlete ever named one of The Sun's football Players of the Year, asked to be on the kicking and punting teams this season so he could deal some extracurricular punishment.
