Maryland men's soccer coach Sasho Cirovski has seen more than a dozen of his players leave school early to pursue professional careers. The departures have often left Cirovski to wonder whether his former athletes would eventually come back to finish their undergraduate degrees. With a new program announced Tuesday by Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson, athletes in all of the school's sports will be able to return with their scholarships intact as long as they left the university in good academic and social standing.

Jonathan Ogden parted ways with the NFL more than three years ago, but the retired Ravens offensive tackle remains an active presence in the Baltimore community.

I am writing in regard to the front page stories from the Sunday edition about untimely death of Yeardley Love. In the article highlighting the facts of the case against her former boyfriend, George Huguely ("Huguely jury to begin deliberation Wednesday," Feb. 19), I was disturbed, as a former student athlete, coach and educator, to read the defense attorney's statement "he is what you get; he's a boy athlete. " I was disgusted by this all inclusive statement that was clearly made to convince the jury that Mr. Huguely's behavior was the norm in the athletic community.

This week's news seems mostly all about winners. Everybody wants to be a winner and it's nice when everyone can win. Sometimes struggling to compete makes you a winner even without a trophy or ribbon. Congratulations to all who struggle in the race of life. You know who you are. Keep pressing on. The Amanda Post Memorial Fund was established to honor one who struggled and lived with enthusiasm. This is the fifth year of the Amanda Post Amanda Wins River Hill High School Student-Athlete Scholarship and the Amanda Post Amanda Wins Soccer Association of Columbia/Howard County Student-Athlete Scholarship.

Thank you for that wonderful editorial about our University of Maryland women's basketball treasure, Alyssa Thomas and the team ( "Remember her name," April 1). As an alumnus and season ticket holder, I have always wondered at the lack of coverage (one never sees the weekly rankings of the women's team, despite our local team usually ranked in the top 10) and the lack of fan support. Season tickets are a bargain and the quality of play is top notch. If you were not at Comcast Center you missed a chance to watch the Terps almost beat Notre Dame and Connecticut this season.

Maurice Clarett took the microphone and worked his way down the stairs on the left side of the stage of the Frederick Douglass auditorium. He wasn't going to put himself on a pedestal, he was going to tell his story about hitting rock bottom, from the ground floor. Wearing a gray suit, Clarett - in a low, raspy voice - told 69 football players from Baltimore high schools that three and a half weeks after his now-fiancee, Ashley Evans gave birth to his daughter, he was arrested, and subsequently served three and a half years in jail.

After Tom Linsenmeyer committed suicide in 2001, his brothers and sister decided the best way to keep the student-athlete's memory alive would be a run for charity. Now in its 12th year, Tom's 5K Reindeer Run raises thousands of dollars for Sarah's House, an emergency shelter for women and families in Anne Arundel County. On Saturday morning, about 300 runners braved the cold in sweatpants and headbands to run the 3.1-mile lap around West Laurel, with proceeds expected to be between $5,000 and $10,000.

The NCAA released Graduation Success Rate and Federal Graduation Rate scores for all of its Division I athletic programs Thursday. The GSR and FGR are separate from the NCAA's Academic Performance Rates, which can lead to penalties for schools that score poorly. (Those will be released in spring 2014.) According to a release from Maryland, the GSR is a four-year measure of freshmen and transfer student-athletes who entered the university between the fall of 2003 and the spring of 2007.

Football players at Douglass have a full-time academic coach this fall helping them not just to improve their grades, but to navigate the requirements for college admission. The 1st and Goal program is a pilot initiative designed by the Family League of Baltimore. Douglass received a grant from NFL Player Engagement to fund the program, which focuses on improving all aspects of student athletes' lives. Douglass athletic director Tina Queen said she hopes to expand the program next fall to include all sports, but because more student athletes play football than any other sport at the school, the 1st and Goal program is expected to have an immediate impact.
