Randy Edsall's first season as Maryland football coach produced two wins. It didn't get much better last year, when the Terrapins went through four quarterbacks and a six-game skid that resulted in a 4-8 record. Now, as Edsall prepares for his third stab at a winning season, he's got every reason to believe that a fresh start will result in a change of fortune. His optimism comes from the fashion in which his athletes have reacted to his team-first philosophy. “Everybody is holding each other accountable.

“I've been reading about the University of Maryland cutting out the lesser-known sports programs, just to save money. Well, if I were the parents of those students that were participating in these lesser-known sports, I would say, hey, what do we need all these cheerleaders for, for the basketball team and the football team, and the big moneymaking sports events? I always thought cheerleaders were a waste of time and money. ... Cut that money out.” - Hagerstown “This call is pertaining to the University of Maryland football team.

A proposed bill that would allow a county board of education in Maryland to begin its fall practice for high school sports teams up to two weeks earlier than the date set by the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association received unanimous support at a Washington County delegation meeting Wednesday. Representatives of the Washington County Board of Education asked for the bill because they believe that high schools in neighboring Pennsylvania and West Virginia have an advantage because fall season sports practice starts earlier in those states.

School Stadium was packed on Friday night to see Hagerstown's two public high schools - North and South - duke it out in their annual football showdown. The bleachers on opposite sides of the field were filled with red-clad North fans and green-clad South fans. Some took extra steps to show their spirit, dying their hair the appropriate team color. The bands entertained, students cheered, burgers sizzled on the grill. Bruce Carter, the father of a South High band member, worked one of the french fry fryers.

The first weekend of this October, two planes will pass each other. One, filled with football players from the Northeast will be traveling some 1,300 miles to play a team in Texas. The other, filled with Texas football players, will be traveling even farther to play a football team (Rutgers) from New Jersey. They must do so because Southern Methodist University will be a new member of the Big East Conference, while former Big East member West Virginia University is entering its second year in the Southwest's Big 12 Conference.

Donald “Don” Burley is remembered by his family as a man who touched the lives of many through his quiet, humble ways. His community involvement and volunteer efforts were done to help others, not for recognition or fanfare. Don was the second of H. Marsh and Alice Burley's four children. He grew up in Worthington, W.Va., with loving parents and not realizing they were poor. “He allowed that level of poverty to change him in a good way,” said daughter Julie White of Wichita, Kan. “He grew up in a multicultural community where he loved everyone.” In high school, Don played football, basketball and baseball and was in the marching band, joining the band for the halftime show in his football uniform with his trumpet.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - "We're homeless. " Doug Andree, president of the Waynesboro Stallions Football Association, walked into a meeting Wednesday prepared to sacrifice holding the team's four annual home games at Pine Hill Regional Recreation Area as a way to appease neighbors. By the time Andree left, the Washington Township Supervisors had said he only might be permitted to hold two practices there a week during the three-month fall season. "We're homeless without a place to play," Andree said.

I love it when freckled, grass-stained kids from two tough football programs with long-standing grudges get down in the dirt and the mud and settle the score where it was meant to be settled — in a courtroom. Even so, you have to feel for the Martinsburg Bulldogs, who were sitting around this week waiting to find out who they should have played last week. Martinsburg we knew; the Bulldogs were in the state championship game based on on-field accomplishments. But their opponent had to be decided not on the field, but by the West Virginia Supreme Court, at least indirectly.
