The opening moments of Saturday's Class 4A state semifinal couldn't have gone any more according to script for No. 3 Meade, which exploded for a 70-yard touchdown on the game's first offensive play. By the second half, however, the Mustangs' fast start was trumped by a Suitland highlight reel. Running back Robert Wigfall rushed for 134 yards and three touchdowns and quarterback Wesley Wolfolk ran for two scores and threw for another as the Rams, ranked No. 5 in the Washington, D.C., area, ended Meade's season with a 46-25 loss.

SUITLAND -- Here on Silver Hill in the quiet Maryland suburbs the gleaming, cigar-shaped fuselage of the infamous Enola Gay lies harmless, the once-mighty B-29 bomber cut into pieces and eviscerated of its avionics.But the aircraft, which dropped the atomic bomb Little Boy on Hiroshima Aug. 6, 1945, is in good hands. And in 1995 the historic bomber will re-emerge from its present drafty quarters looking just as it did on that fateful August day -- right down to the last perfectly restored cockpit dial and control wire.

District Heights -- The last time Arundel was in a state football final was 1979, when the Wildcats lost the Class A (now 3A) championship to Seneca Valley. A fledgling coach and Arundel graduate was the defensive coordinator for coach Buddy Hepfer. That coach was Chuck Markiewicz, who is in his 20th season as an Anne Arundel County head coach and has been at his alma mater for the past seven years. Yesterday, Markiewicz led his No. 4 Wildcats to a 14-13 upset in a Class 4A semifinal at defending state champion Suitland (12-1)

Some might look at Roddy Peters as a consolation prize for Maryland after the Terps finished second to Kentucky in their pursuit of the Harrison twins. Peters, the 6-4 Suitland point guard who announced Tuesday that he was headed to College Park next season , is not as talented as Andrew Harrison. But I think he might be a better fit for what Mark Turgeon is trying to build - or rebuild - than either of the Harrisons. He is this year's Jake Layman, a kid who not many upper-echelon programs wanted after his sophomore year in high school and was highly sought by the time he was a senior.

Jacobs, a 5-foot-11, 175-pound wide receiver, committed to Maryland on Wednesday. Suitland coach Ed Shields said his former player will start classes in College Park this month. “This is a hard-working, stand-up kid,” Shields said.
