Sports International's football clinics make MVPs of 7- to 18-year-olds in an intensive, small-group setting with instruction from college and high school coaching staff. The Steve Slaton two-day camp, running July 10–11 in Sugar Land, gives potential pigskin purveyors a comprehensive crash course in offensive and defensive skills from renowned Texans running back Steve Slaton, talented high-school coaches, and a mob of disgruntled footballs. Working in groups no larger than 10, nascent Heisman candidates perform many of the same drills taught by the Texans' coaching staff. Attendees receive a free camp T-shirt and souvenir autograph football but must provide, rent, or manufacture their own playing gear.

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.
