You remember Steve Suter. How could you not? The former Terps standout returned six punts for touchdowns in 2002 and 2003. But I'm guessing what you best remember is this -- he never called for a fair catch. That's a remarkable statistic when you consider that he has more career returns (121), more career yards (1,271) and more punt return touchdowns (the six) than any other Terps player. Suter said he believed it was better to fall forward for a yard or two -- often much more, of course -- than surrender by signaling a fair catch.

It's not uncommon for professional and even college athletes to have fans clamor for autographs. But a high school football player?Such is the case of North Carroll's Steve Suter.The senior running back, who teaches a physical education class at North Carroll Middle School, was relaxing as some of his students were getting their school pictures taken a couple months ago."Then one kid asked for an autograph. Forty other kids followed," Suter recalled. "It's very flattering."Seventh graders aren't the only ones paying attention to Suter.

COLLEGE PARK - He was out of breath, he was emotionally exhausted, and he was covered in sweat. Inside Alltel Stadium, 78,892 people had just watched Steve Suter return a punt 76 yards for a touchdown, giving Maryland a 17-0 lead over West Virginia on New Year's Day in the Gator Bowl. But at that moment, Suter wasn't thinking about any of them. He was only thinking about his father, George, 800 miles away, watching the game at home from his couch in Manchester. As fans celebrated, and teammates tried to hug him, Suter ran past a television camera and blurted out what had been on his mind since the moment he crossed the goal line.

A role reversal seems to have made little difference in thefootball career of Steve Suter as he works on a second successive banner season as a running back at North Carroll. He has gone from decoy to the real thing.Last year, while senior Adam Crowl was becoming the first player in school history to rush for more than 1,000 yards twice in a career -- and drawing a lot of attention from opposing teams -- Suter, a 5-foot-7, 145-pound sophomore was "the other running back."He took the heat off Crowl enough to amass 740 yards and five touchdowns as a runner and 431 yards and three touchdowns as a receiver (21 catches)

Time: 1 p.m. Radio: WBAL (1090 AM) Line: Maryland by 13 Series: Maryland leads 27-18 Last meeting: Maryland beat Duke, 59-17, last year in College Park. Last game: Maryland beat Georgia Tech, 34-10; Duke lost to North Carolina State, 24-22. Maryland offense vs. Duke defense: With Chris Downs and Josh Allen both playing well in the backfield, the addition of Bruce Perry may not be that vital, though it will be interesting to see what the run game can do against an improved Blue Devils run defense.

COLLEGE PARK -- The burden on linebacker D'Qwell Jackson could be onerous, but it's one he thinks he's prepared to handle for the Maryland football team this season. The mission -- and it's one he has chosen to accept -- is to replace E.J. Henderson, a player who ended his career among the most decorated talents to wear a Terps uniform. Maryland began its spring practices looking for candidates to succeed the two-time consensus All-American, who became a second-round choice of the Minnesota Vikings in yesterday's NFL draft.

COLLEGE PARK - After practice yesterday morning, Bruce Perry emerged from Maryland's locker room at the eastern end of Byrd Stadium wearing a smirk and a powder blue Philadelphia Phillies hat while flashing a familiar gesture. Confronted by a group of reporters seeking comment, Perry responded by mimicking a knife with his hand as it crossed his neck. The silent but none-too-cryptic message: Things are not going well. Indeed, they weren't. Once again, injury - this time a right ankle sprain - will force the senior running back to wait.

COLLEGE PARK - The ball is in the air. The smallest player on the field shuffles his feet, looks skyward and moves into position. An army of tacklers is thundering down on him, looking to separate his head from his body. Fifty-thousand pairs of eyes watch, and the stadium pulses with anticipation. In a few seconds, they'll be on their feet and screaming, and he'll be racing toward the end zone. But at this moment, Steve Suter hears nothing. It's true what they say: For the best punt returners, things get real quiet.

COLLEGE PARK - Baseball has its relievers, basketball its sixth men, hockey its penalty-killers. All tend to be more celebrated and less disposable than those who lurk beyond the starting lineup on a football team. "I wouldn't say I'm satisfied," said Maryland sophomore linebacker Andrew Henley, who hopes to someday parlay his reserve role into something larger. "You can't settle for being a backup, because if you do that, that's all you're going to be." That said, the Terrapins' breakout players this season could be fewer of the front-line stars like Bruce Perry or E.J. Henderson and more of those like Henley, who may see fewer than 20 plays per game.

North Carroll (2-1)at Thomas Johnson (2-1)When: 7 tonightOutlook: Coming off last week's loss to Bowie, the Panthers will try to get back on the winning track in what figures to be a high-scoring game in Frederick. All-everything back Steve Suter (652 yards, eight TDs in three games), who will play at Maryland next season, is the go-to guy in a ball-control offense, but the Panthers also will use him as a decoy for halfback Greg Dalgarno and fullbacks Vinnie Iadevaia and Trevor Stockman.The Patriots also feature a strong running game, led by quarterback Robert Staley, who loves to bootleg.
