It's not every day a helicopter lands near a high school football field to drop off a major college football coach on a recruiting trip. Thursday afternoon, Penn State coach James Franklin made such a splashy entrance at Woodlawn to see a couple of Franklin's top prospects.

Indians coach Anthony Burgos said Franklin was looking at senior offensive lineman Patrick Allen and junior wide receiver Steven Smothers.

A Baltimore man has been charged in a Woodlawn rape that occurred 15 years earlier, after county investigators matched DNA evidence to an earlier case. The evidence collected in the 1997 Woodlawn case matched evidence from a 1993 city case, where police identified Ronald White, 49, as a suspect, police said. Law enforcement agencies continue to review DNA collections, after the process was briefly halted when the state's highest court blocked the collections in April. The court of appeals decision in a Wicomico County case found collections of DNA samples unconstitutional and that the practice provided access to a significant amount of personal information.
