Soon after last season ended, Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti challenged third-year player Joe Flacco to become a franchise-caliber quarterback in 2010. Ravens running back Ray Rice took the message personally, as well. "It wasn't just to Joe," said Rice, entering his third season. "It was to all the young players, including myself. Basically, he was saying the learning curve was over and the time is now." Rice got the message. Oh, did he ever. Last season was a breakout year for the former Rutgers star as he rushed for 1,339 yards and gained an additional 780 yards on 78 catches.

Despite a 6-foot-2, 220-pound frame, Morgan State outside linebacker Christopher Robinson was a novice in the weight room during his first year at the university, and that inexperience showed during a session with Josh Bush, the strength and conditioning coach. "One time, he had to correct me because I was doing it in the wrong fashion. I was truly eager to get into the weight room," Robinson recalled. "But one thing that I did show was that I wanted to get to college and I wanted to get bigger.

Theories abound as to why Rogers Barnes is a late bloomer - not making a name for himself in either football or basketball until this, his senior year. But there is no doubt that Barnes is one of the most dynamic basketball players in the county this season and a key reason the Hawks (11-2 overall and in the Howard County league) are one of the county's top teams. He leads River Hill in scoring with a 14.8 average, and his defensive skills are equally impressive. Barnes normally guards the opposing team's top scoring threat and averages a team-high six steals.

SCN athletes have won seven Olympic gold medals and 48 in world and European master-class contests.And somewhat incongruously at a club renowned for runners and jumpers, most of the gold was won by canoe and kayak racers.

When 104 Arundel High students began to congregate on the school's tennis courts shortly before 9 a.m. last Wednesday, it looked like the start of a day of summer camp. Most of the students wore shorts and tank tops, appearing a bit sluggish at what many teenagers consider an early hour for the summer. But it became clear they weren't about to play kickball when three Arundel coaches broke them into 20 lines stretching across the court. In the next 65 minutes, the student-athletes - most of whom play football, but including girls from the field hockey, track and basketball teams - went through a series of jogging warm-up exercises, nine 100-yard sprints and stops at five stations in a steamy weight room.

OK, how nutty is this season going? Consider outfielder-infielder Steve Pearce, whom the Orioles bought for minimal cash from the New York Yankees on June 2. He exercised an opt-out clause in his contract. Had he stayed withTriple-AScranton/Wilkes-Barre, Pearce would be in the middle of a 13-game road trip. The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre team has been playing basically on the road all year, using the Rochester park as a home field at times because their park is under construction.
