Still a couple of weeks from his 16th birthday and little more than a month removed from an All-Metro football season, Gilman junior defensive end Victor Abiamiri found himself across the desk from a man offering him a very big job. "We need you to help us win a national football title," said Maryland football coach Ralph Friedgen, looking deep into Abiamiri's eyes during an unofficial recruiting visit to the campus in January. "You are the final piece to the puzzle." "He got right to the point, didn't mince words," said Rita Abiamiri, who was also in Friedgen's Byrd Stadium office during the 10-minute meeting, when he offered the youngest and largest of her three sons a scholarship.

Victor Abiamiri, the former Gilman standout and Baltimore Sun All-Metro Defensive Player of the Year in 2002, underwent microfracture knee surgery on Feb. 9 and might not be able to return to football activities until after training camp in August, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported Friday. The injury to Abiamiri, a 24-year-old defensive end for the Philadelphia Eagles, could leave his career in doubt. "It's a big injury," Eagles trainer Rick Burkhalter told the Inquirer. "It's knocked some guys out of playing, but plenty of people have come back and played, too. He's got youth on his side."

SOUTH BEND, Ind. - In the final moments leading up to his first college football game, Notre Dame freshman defensive end Victor Abiamiri did not think about the multitude of new sets he had learned or the scouting report on his team's season-opening opponent, Washington State. Instead, his attention was focused on the Fighting Irish marching band. "A couple of guys were laughing at me, because I was just looking around, listening to the band play, thinking, `The band plays really well,' " Abiamiri said.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - It was time to eat, and no one on the Philadelphia Eagles' defense seemed to be as hungry as Trent Cole. There was only one selection on the menu - Eli Manning - when the New York Giants, facing a wind stiffer than Andy Reid's upper lip, had a crucial fourth-and-one with 9 1/2 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter yesterday and the Eagles in front 17-7. "You know, that's when it's time to eat," Cole said in the buoyant visitors' locker room at Giants Stadium after the Eagles kept their season meaningful with a 20-14 win over the NFC East leaders.

Sarah Sample sees politics in her future, but don't expect her to dodge any issues on the soccer field. "When I get the ball, the first thing I'm thinking about is taking the ball upfield and scoring," said Sample, a George Washington University sophomore forward from St. Mary's. "Obviously that's not always the option for what's going on at the moment. I really enjoy getting forward and getting into the attack, but there is something to be said as far as being able to play around teams and string passes together."

In the past, Maryland fans have seen some of the state's biggest high school football stars leave for schools such as Florida State, Notre Dame and Penn State. Dunbar's Tommy Polley (Florida State), Edmondson's Jason Murphy (Virginia Tech), Eleanor Roosevelt's Derrick Williams (Penn State), Gilman's Victor Abiamiri (Notre Dame) and Friendly's Joe Haden (Florida) are just a few of the area blue-chippers who escaped the Terps.

South Bend, Ind. -- Victor Abiamiri and Ambrose Wooden came here from Baltimore four years ago hoping to find the kind of success at Notre Dame that they had at the Gilman School, where as seniors they led the football team to an undefeated season and a No. 1 ranking in the state. Returning today to play in their hometown for the first time when the 11th-ranked Fighting Irish meet Navy at M&T Bank Stadium, Abiamiri and Wooden find themselves in different situations in their college careers.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Notre Dame linebacker Corey Mays insists it's essential to be aggressive in trying to stop Troy Smith. Defensive end Victor Abiamiri (Gilman) qualifies that by saying the aggressiveness must be cut with a heavy dose of discipline. And coach Charlie Weis insists that nobody on the Ohio State roster scares him more than Smith, the rocket-armed, fleet-footed quarterback. Smith's numbers easily explain Weis' trepidation: 545 rushing yards and 11 rushing touchdowns, 1,940 passing yards, 14 touchdown passes, just four interceptions, a 62.2 percent completion rate and a pass efficiency rating of 158.45, seventh best in the country.
