The General. That's the nickname Taysean Scott earned on the basketball court when he was 7 for his fearless style of play and innate ability to lead. The nickname stuck, and Scott has adopted a similar mentality on the football field. Scott, who grew up in Baltimore and attended McDonogh, is a star cornerback at Williams College. He made a name for himself on the field during his freshman season, starting nearly every game and dominating defensively. Starting in mid-July, though, The General will join a new team: He's part of a 44-man roster that will represent the United States at the 2014 International Federation of American Football Under-19 World Championships in Kuwait.

The Terps' performance from the foul line has improved significantly, yet their three-point accuracy has gotten marginally worse. Assists and scoring average are both up, but so are turnover totals. As Maryland coach Gary Williams discussed his team's offense yesterday, he offered a review that was as mixed as the statistics it has produced.

I LIVE in a region where a lacrosse stick is more likely than perfect SAT scores to get your child into a top college or university. Every parent in Maryland, and particularly Anne Arundel County, knows this, so when my daughter finally got around to picking up a stick - at the advanced age of 12 - my husband and I began to spin daydreams of Princeton and Duke. And, because my daughter cannot escape the messages in this hotbed of lacrosse, she asked fearfully if she would have to give up basketball, soccer, the mall, the telephone, cartoons on Saturday morning and Teen People magazine to excel in this crowded sport.
