The route to the second-floor club level area of M&T Bank Stadium, where the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association holds its press luncheon for the 16 coaches in the state football semifinals each year, is a familiar one to River Hill's Brian Van Deusen; he has made the trip the past two years. But there's more than a little deja vu at play for Van Deusen, who, for a second straight year, brings an unbeaten Hawks team that is ranked No. 1 in the area to the semifinals with a roster and a coaching staff that looks a lot like the one that reached the Class 3A championship game last year.

One day, Max Coale would like to be a doctor. He already appears to be training for the long hours necessary to get through medical school with a schedule that keeps him studying past midnight six days a week. "I take Sunday off," he said. Though his future is bright, current events occupy his every minute and his main concern at the moment is River Hill's next football game. The senior, 6 feet 4 and 240 pounds, is the Hawks' senior starter at offensive tackle and defensive end. In the spring, he plays lacrosse for his school team.

The No. 1 Hawks are the defending 2A champs, with a 27-0 record over the past two seasons, and in the second half of this game they looked every bit a champion.

Long Reach's best chance at toppling top-ranked River Hill last night was to do what no football team had done this season, contain the Hawks' dynamic attack and find a weakness in their fearsome defense. The host Lightning forced three turnovers, but it was not nearly enough, as River Hill's defense and special teams combined for four touchdowns en route to a 50-7 victory. River Hill, the defending Class 2A state champion, has outscored its opponents 264-22 in five games. "We did some good things, but overall, it was our worst effort of the year," River Hill coach Brian Van Deusen said.

It isn't very often that Oakland Mills standout Miriam McKenzie is caught off guard on the basketball court, but that was the case in the fourth quarter of Thursday's 45-32 win over Glenelg. After McKenzie made a free throw, the game was halted as the senior guard became the school's all-time leading scorer. McKenzie surpassed 2001 graduate Rayna DuBose and, with her 29 points Thursday, has 1,600 in her four years. When the game was stopped, Scorpions coach Seth Willingham gave McKenzie a framed jersey.

It's a good thing that Western Maryland's football team has junior quarterback Brian Van Deusen around. Without him, the Green Terror would not be in position to pull off their first winning season since 1990.With two games left, Western Maryland (4-3, 3-2 in the Centennial Conference) is idle this week, and no one deserves a break more than Van Deusen. The Green Terror defense has given up a league-worst 245 rushing yards per game, and has allowed a generous 23.1 points per game. What's more, the offense has averaged only 83 rushing yards, another league low.That leaves Van Deusen (Atholton High)

Who is No. 1? River Hill and Dunbar believe they can stake claim to the top ranking after winning state football championships Saturday at M&T Bank Stadium. The teams went in ranked No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, in The Sun's Top 15 poll but won in contrasting fashion. So was River Hill's 14-7 squeaker over No. 6 Eastern Tech (13-1) in the Class 2A title game enough to keep it at No. 1? Said Hawks coach Brian Van Deusen: "It was the first time we were tested all season." No. 2 Dunbar, riding a 24-game winning streak, repeated as 1A state champ with a 58-34 romp over storied Western Maryland program Allegany, an eight-time state champion.
