Football is the king of sports at Wilde Lake, winner of four state and 13 county football titles. Maybe that's why most people think only of football when Tony Jackson's name is mentioned.But Jackson also plays baseball. In fact, he may be a better baseball player than football player, even though the junior was a second-team All-Metro defensive back last fall.Through Wilde Lake's first four games, the 6-foot-2, 205-pound outfielder is 6-for-10 with three home runs, a triple and 10 RBIs. He has two stolen bases.

MIAMI - Good health has been one of Maryland's strengths this season, but the No. 6 Terrapins (10-1) are starting to get nicked up, which concerns coach Ralph Friedgen as his team prepares to play No. 5 Florida in next week's Orange Bowl. Tailback Bruce Perry, who led the Atlantic Coast Conference in rushing with 1,242 yards, aggravated an abdominal pull in practice yesterday. Friedgen said the injury first occurred during last week's practices. It was fine in the team's first practice in Florida before Perry apparently tweaked it yesterday.

Want to know how good Wilde Lake's football team is going to be this season?This little anecdote will tell you.Wildecats coach Doug DuVall broke his leg in a snowmobile accident behind his home in Ellicott City last February. Just before the 2 1/2 -hour operation that repaired his femur bone with a permanent metal rod, DuVall implored the doctor not to let anything happen to him."I've watched this football team develop for four years and I don't want to miss it," DuVall said. DuVall, coaching his 23rd season at Wilde Lake, will be around to enjoy every minute, although he's still limping a bit.The Wildecats have posted records of 5-6, 6-4 and 7-3 the past three seasons.

Florida State passing game vs. Maryland pass defense Both sides of this equation have seen a little uncertainty recently. For Florida State, it's what coach Bobby Bowden might do with the quarterback situation, while Maryland may have to do without its best pass defender, Tony Okanlawon. At quarterback, Chris Rix has had an uneven year, completing 76 percent of his passes and throwing three touchdowns against Wake Forest, then throwing four interceptions and getting sacked six times against Miami.

COLLEGE PARK -- Maryland Terrapins senior strong safety Tony Jackson did not take long to make an imprint on yesterday's 32-20 victory over West Virginia. Just when it appeared the Mountaineers were about to score first after marching 74 yards on their opening possession, Jackson leaped in front of West Virginia receiver Antonio Brown for an interception that set the tone for a Maryland defense that would force six turnovers, negating 430 yards of offense by West Virginia. Jackson, out of Wilde Lake High School, was only getting started.

COLLEGE PARK - Tony Jackson has waited, through sprains, tears and losses. Now, all the good things might be coming for the Maryland safety in his fourth year since graduating from Wilde Lake High School. He is two knocks on wood - one before each of the remaining games - from getting through a season without an injury that keeps him out of action. He is having a season worthy of all-league honors, and his coach, Ron Vanderlinden, has said so repeatedly over the past few weeks. He is - along with his Maryland teammates - one win away from possibly his first bowl appearance, which would finish a rebuilding project that started in his freshman season.

COLLEGE PARK - Maryland coach Ron Vanderlinden said he won't name his starting quarterback until Saturday, the day his team plays North Carolina in Chapel Hill. Vanderlinden does have a decision to make between Calvin McCall, who sprained an ankle in Saturday's win over North Carolina State, and Shaun Hill, who directed the come-from-behind victory over the Wolfpack. The decision could determine whether his team can pick up its sixth win, making it eligible to receive bowl invitations, most likely from the Micronpc.

COLLEGE PARK - After winning its last two games, albeit against the bottom feeders of the Atlantic Coast Conference, the Maryland football team has given itself a mathematical chance of going to its first bowl game since 1990. The 2000 season has come down to a two-out-of-three scenario. The 4-4 Terrapins must win two of their last three games to be eligible for a bowl bid. And the road starts on Saturday with a visit from a North Carolina State team sporting fresh bruises from last week's 58-14 thrashing by Florida State.

COLLEGE PARK - Maryland quarterback Shaun Hill said last night there is a chance he will miss Saturday's game against West Virginia with a right shoulder injury that occurred in the closing minutes of the first half of the season-opening 17-10 victory over Temple last Saturday night at Byrd Stadium. "It's a mild strain or a mild separation," said Hill. "They're both about the same thing. I'm still sore, especially in the morning. But I'm going to try and play Saturday. I want to play in every game this season.

RALEIGH, N.C. -- The odds seem to be stacked against the Maryland football team today as it prepares to meet North Carolina State in virtually a make-or-break game for the 1999 season in terms of a bowl bid for the Terps.First of all, the somewhat beleaguered Maryland secondary has to figure out how to prevent one of the nation's most mobile quarterbacks, Jamie Barnette, from putting on a passing clinic.Barnette will obviously be emotionally charged for the noon Maryland test because it will be the final home appearance of a storied career that peaked last year when he guided the Wolfpack to a shocking 24-7 victory over national power Florida State.
