Juwuane Sandridge says he doesn't mind if people look at him a little funny. “I'm blessed,” he said. “I'm in the position I wanted and I have a group of kids who are working hard. I think we are going to surprise some people.” That's when the sidelong glances and the index finger circling around the temple starts. Sandridge is the new head football coach at Saint James School, replacing Chris Milmoe, who became the athletic director.

As they live their lives after their time at Saint James School, commencement speaker Juan Williams said his prayer for the school's Class of 2011 is that they surprise themselves. In doing so, they will serve as an inspiration to others, Williams said Sunday. Williams is an author and political analyst for Fox News who has been a Washington Post columnist and National Public Radio news correspondent. Williams said his prayer for the graduates is not about pleasing anyone or meeting anyone's expectations, but "surprising yourself with your abilities, with your willingness to take on challenges, to be uncomfortable, to learn languages, to travel, to give up much ... to give up much for what is right and good in the world.
