When Frank Spruill first looked into franchises more than 30 years ago, he found three options: fast food, automobiles or books. "It was a no brainer," Spruill laughed this past week, standing inside his Little Professor Book Center in Eldersburg. Soon after deciding to pursue the book market, he opened Little Professor in the Carrolltown Center in 1977, where it was located until six years ago, when it moved to its current location at Liberty Station Shopping Center on Liberty Road.

When Tim Spruill was 13 years old, he watched his Howard County Trojan teammate Charles Matthews punt in practice."I told myself, 'I can do that,' and right then I promised myself to learn every position on the field," Spruill said. "I took it upon myself to be more valuable to the coach. My mom told me to never limit myself."Spruill, a junior captain for Hammond (3-1, 1-0 in the Howard County League), starts at quarterback, cornerback, punter, kickoff specialist, punt returner and kickoff returner.

When Sherry Spruill first met her real estate agent back in 2005, the two women clicked like old friends. Over the course of several months, they had dinner, drove together to see homes listed for sale and swapped stories. "In the beginning, we meshed. I felt like her only client," says Spruill, a federal examiner in her early 40s. "She was very attentive, very aggressive - she hustled in terms of finding listings. For a while, she did everything the right way." But by the time Spruill closed on a three-bedroom, four-bath townhouse in Montgomery County - her first home purchase - the agent-client relationship had hit a rough patch over deposits, fees and commission.

The best parenting comes not when a mother or father yells at a child when he or she has made a mistake or spilled grape juice on the carpet, but when the parent takes a moment to gather himself or herself emotionally before addressing the situation. Likewise, St. Frances girls lacrosse coach Artie Spruill is displaying an important feature of a good leader, namely the one that balances the limitations of an athlete in her charge against the player's ability to grow and improve. "I constantly take a step back before I open my mouth," Spruill said.

When Artie Spruill decided to coach the first St. Frances girls lacrosse team this spring, she knew she and her players were in for a challenge. After all, none of the girls who came out for the club team had ever even held a stick in her hand and the Panthers don't have transportation to a practice field. But that didn't discourage any of them. Spruill, who played at Loch Raven and Towson University, planned her own independent schedule, one she thought included a few teams the Panthers could be competitive with.

Towson coach Pat Kennedy credits his team for doing a solid job moving the ball on offense to create open shots, but he acknowledges that the Tigers have struggled recently to convert those chances. While the offense played better last night against visiting Lafayette, Towson could not match the Leopards' firepower down the stretch in a 79-69 overtime loss. The defeat also wasted a solid performance by Towson's defense, which forced 17 turnovers, and the Tigers are 4-6 going into the holiday break.

As opening games go, Towson's 83-69 win over Loyola last night was a best-case, worst-case scenario. Best case: Towson flashed a menacing 1-3-1 zone defense and turned Junior Hairston loose inside for a 26-point, 21-rebound debut at Towson Center. Worst case: Loyola took 29 three-point shots, went long stretches without a field goal and was out-rebounded by 15. Towson coach Pat Kennedy called it the biggest win of his five-year term, while Loyola coach Jimmy Patsos labeled it the most disappointing game of his five years.

NOT LONG after the final buzzer sounded Friday night and the Walbrook boys basketball team had claimed its 54-38 win over Southwestern, one of Rodney Spruill's teammates ran into the locker room yelling, "Where's the horse?" Largely because of his easygoing nature as well as the fact that the Warriors rode his back to a surprisingly convincing victory over the then-No. 3 Sabers, Spruill didn't take umbrage at the comparison. "I play wherever they need me to play," said Spruill. "If they need me to rebound, I rebound.

Even after leading Walbrook to the Class 4A state championship last season, Rodney Spruill, a deceptively agile, sharp-shooting small forward, still heard the knocks against him as a Division I prospect. Was he fleet-footed enough to defend against athletic guards in Division I? Was he big enough or strong enough to endure the banging underneath the basket among college big men? "Could Rodney do it with his feet? Could Rodney defend a wing guy on the perimeter, somebody who is quick? Not at 255 pounds," Walbrook coach Kelvin Bridgers said.
