  • Tebow a role model? You bet

    In 1983, the Baltimore Colts selected John Elway with the first pick in that year’s NFL draft. Elway had no interest in playing for the Colts, and said he would play professional baseball if they took him. So the Colts traded Elway to the Broncos for two players and a first-round pick in the 1984 draft. The rest is history.

    But what the senior midfielder and his teammates couldn’t do was get that one last elusive tally in sudden-death overtime. That belonged to Regis Jesuit’s Marcus Walker, whose only goal of the game gave the host Raiders a 7-6 win May 15 in the boys lacrosse state quarterfinals at Lou Kellogg Stadium.
