After taking down Villanova and Morgan State, the Towson University Tigers plan to continue their winning ways against NCAA FCS foes with team coordination honed by coach Rob Ambrose. The four remaining home games promise a thrilling Homecoming on September 24, when the Tigers hope to roar past Colgate's Raiders and claw their way to a collective nomination for homecoming queen. Throughout the season, look for sophomore quarterback Grant Enders—who recently was named CAA Offensive Player of the Week—or speedy running back Sterlin Phifer to celebrate touchdowns in the end zone against the Richmond Spiders and Delaware Blue Hens. Co-captain and defensive back Jordan Dangerfield will try to improve his status as the nation's 24th-ranked sacker by blasting through New Hampshire's offensive line using archaic tactics the Visigoths once used to sack Rome.
In the world of athletic training, Robert Taylor, Jr.’s resume speaks for itself. In addition to stints as the strength and conditioning coach for two NCAA Division I programs, his expertise also landed him gigs with professional baseball, football, and basketball franchises. Now, along with the other experienced coaches at SMARTER Team Training, Robert shepherds high school athletes toward their full potential at training camps and clinics. Whether they’re honing game-specific skills for field hockey, soccer, or lacrosse, or increasing overall athleticism during the school’s signature Speed, Agility, and Conditioning Camp, students always find a challenging itinerary designed to bring skills to a more advanced level. There's even a college prep training program, which gets high school players ready for the increased intensity and remorseless, cold-eyed referees found at the college level.

Before Bell Biv DeVoe warned that girl was “Poison,” Johnny Gill “Just Got Paid,” Ralph Tresvant boasted his “Sensitivity,” and Bobby Brown declared it was “My Prerogative,” all six new jack swingers strutted across stages as teen sensation New Edition. Fully reunited and dressed to the nines, the soulful sextet packs the 1st Mariner Center with decades of accumulated Top 10 classics and liquid dance moves. The nearly two-hour set spans the group’s entire career, from falsetto-laden classics such as “Candy Girl” and “Cool It Now” to later hits such as “If It Isn’t Love,” all mixed with stacks of tracks from their successful solo careers. This tour finds them putting on a show that's "loose, fast-paced, high-spirited, loaded with hits and personality, and thoroughly entertaining," according to the NJ.com review of a recent concert, bringing to life a catalog of songs that sticks to ears like honeycomb earmuffs. El DeBarge kicks off the evening as the opening act, coloring seductive synthesizers with his smooth tenor during dance hits such as “I Like It” and “Rhythm of the Night.”
Join the Columbia Orchestra, under the baton of music director Jason Love, as it closes out its 33rd concert season with "Creation and Destruction", a program exploring the beaming joys and tumultuous sorrows of the human spirit. The program kicks off with Radiohead's “Harry Patch (In Memory Of),” before bathing audiences in the sound waves of minimalist composer John Adams' "Batter My Heart" from his 2005 opera Doctor Atomic, which follows the story of J. Robert Oppenheimer as he copes with the burden of choosing between two similarly appealing auto-insurance companies. A cadre of 52 string instruments conjures the monolithic swirl of Krzysztof Penderecki's Threnody to the Victims of Hiroshima, before the Orchestra is joined by members of the Masterworks Chorale of Carroll County in a performance of selections from Franz Joseph Haydn's oratorio The Creation.
