When Oklahoma offered Charles Tapper a football scholarship in 2011, the City star had played just one season of organized football. On Thursday night, Tapper helped his Sooner teammates beat No. 3 Alabama, 45-31, in the Sugar Bowl. The sophomore made two tackles in No. 11 Oklahoma's win. Tapper, who starred on the basketball court for the Knights and Nike Baltimore Elite before exploding on the gridiron as a tight end and defensive end for George Petrides, was lured to Norman, Okla., by defensive assistant coach Bobby Wright.

Jake Tapper's new show on CNN, "The Lead," is premiering at a time when cable TV keeps moving further down the road of partisan news presentation. But ask him about it, and there's no waffling. "I am not a partisan, and I am a journalist - not an ideologue," he said in a telephone interview last week. "I want to know information. I want to force people in power to tell me the truth - whether that's a football owner, a president or a CEO. And CNN felt like the best fit to do that.

With his team ahead by 21 points almost midway through the fourth quarter in last night's Class 1A North regional final, Digital Harbor coach Johnny Grimes implored the Rams not to underestimate the resilience of Baltimore City rival Dunbar. His words would prove true. The visiting Poets stormed back and pulled within four with 1:32 remaining, close to adding another chapter to their storied history. But the sixth-ranked Rams made four free throws down the stretch and held on for a 79-70 victory.

There's just something about the water in Baltimore. Maybe you knew that already, but it's worth repeating. The water here, it enables you to do almost anything. Michael Phelps sprang from these waters. Katie Hoff, too. But the swimming story I hope we'll all be able to appreciate this summer is Philip Scholz's quest to represent the United States in the Paralympics. Scholz is a freshman at Loyola College. Before I even tell you about what he's able to do in the water, you've got to understand what he has already been through.

Talk about hitting the floor running, Jeff Zucker looks to have arrived at CNN this month in a flat-out sprint. It's hard not to be impressed by what he's already done: Started to make CNN suddenly seem a couple of decades younger. It's like watching an aggressive and skilled general manager rebuild a baseball team from the bottom up -- first adding younger but already tested major-league talent to the roster while releasing some one-time big names that were no longer productive.

The City boys basketball team had some struggles on the foul line at No. 13 Patterson on Tuesday, but sophomore forward Charles Tapper was able to hit the two most important free throws of the game. After Patterson forward Brian Lewis gave the home team a one-point lead with 10 seconds left, Tapper was fouled underneath with two seconds left. He hit both free throws to send the No. 7 Knights home with a 56-55 win. Senior center Jordan Latham led City (14-2) with 21 points, but his biggest play came in the closing seconds, when he found Tapper underneath on the other side of the basket to set up the game-winning free throws.

What killed tap," Ed Terry told a bunch of hoofer enthusiasts last Sunday, "was the invention of television." Tomorrow night, Terry will do his best to revive tap. But that statement's not completely true. Tap never really died, thanks to people like Terry. Terry teaches tap dancing at the Flair Dance and Modeling Studio, a 40-year-old business run by Willia Bland and her daughter, Andrea Bland Travis. Last Sunday, on National Tap Dance Day, Terry gave a brief history of tap, along with some fundamentals of the dance form, at the School 33 Arts Center on Light Street.

VIENNA, Va. -- "Riverdance," the wildly popular Irish step-dancing show, purports to be a history of Ireland through dance and song. But forget all its pretensions, and the sooner the better. It's a dance spectacular, pure and simple.And who could object to a stage full of lissome girls in skimpy skirts and handsome guys in leather pants, lightly jigging or boldly stomping their way through intricate dance routines?In between the dances are some truly drippy quasi-poems (by one Theo Dorgan)
