Pag 2B The Star-Democrat Wednesday, March 2, 1994 Redskins fire Charley Taylor WASHINGTON (AP) After three decades with the Washington Redskins, Hall of Fame receiver Charley Taylor is out the door as part of new coach Norv Turner's shakeup. Taylor, 51, was fired as an assistant coach Monday in the aftermath of last year's 4-12 season. Turner was hired four weeks ago and Taylor was led to believe he would remain on staff. "I'm as surprised as you are," he told The Washington Timet after cleaning out his office at the team's training facility in nearby Ashburn, Va. "I don't have an answer for what happened." Taylor, who coached receivers and was listed as part of the team's research and development staff, had one year remaining on his contract. The Redskins will honor the contract along with those of three other veteran assistants Turner dismissed defensive line coach Torgy Torgeson, receivers coach Rennie Simmons and special teams coach Wayne Sevier. Turner said the assistants he hired in the past month gave the Redskins five offensive coaches besides himself, leaving no place for Taylor. "I had a chance to bring in some people I felt good about and unfortunately things didn't work out for some of the fine coaches who were here," he said. This week Turner brought in former Raiders assistant Terry Robiskie to coach receivers and Cam Cameron, a University of Michigan assistant, to coach his quarterbacks. Former Cincinnati and Dallas safety Ray Horton becomes a defensive assistant. Inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1984, Taylor still holds the club record for career touchdown receptions with 79 before his retirement at the end of the 1977 season. Bears acquire tackle Heck CHICAGO (AP The Seattle Seahawks on Tuesday decided not to match the Chicago Bears' offer to tackle Andy Heck. That means the five-year veteran goes to the Bears with a four-year, $10 million contract. The Seahawks had made him their "transition player," which gave them the right to match the Bears' offer. Heck was drafted in the first round, 15th overall, from Notre Dame in 1989. Last season, he started all 16 games at right tackle. In five years, he has started 70 of the 77 games in which he played. On Monday, the Seahawks made Howard Ballard, the former Pro Bowl tackle from Buffalo, the highest-paid offensive lineman in the NFL. He signed a four-year-contract for $10.5 million. Simms undergoes surgery EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) New York Giants quarterback Phil Simms underwent surgery Tuesday to repair a small tear in the shoulder socket of his throwing arm. Simms, 38, will have his right arm in a sling for four weeks and then begin rehabilitation. Dr., Russell Warren, who operated at The Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, said there was no significant injury to the muscles of the rotator cuff and the PHIL SIMMS The 15-year veteran played the second half of last season with a sore shoulder that forced him to miss the Pro Bowl. He underwent physical therapy the past month, but surgery was scheduled after the injury showed little improvement. Simms completed 61.8 percent of his passes in 1993 in leading the Giants to an 11-5 record and their first playoff berth since the 1990 Super Bowl season. He was one of seven quarterbacks to start every game last season. The Giants also announced wide receiver Mike Sherrard's rehabilitation of his broken hip is on schedule. Sherrard began a running program last week. Signed as a free agent, Sherrard had 24 catches for 335 yards and two touchdowns before breaking his hip against the Philadelphia Eagles in the sixth game of the season. Cay an, Rieger set indoor mark KARLRUHE, Germany (AP) China's Sun Cayan and Germany's Nicole Rieger set a women's world indoor record in the pole vault Tuesday, clearing 13 feet, 434 inches at the Karlsruhe International track meet. A few minutes before the two women broke Cayan's mark by four-tenths of an inch, England's Linford Christie won the 60 meters in 6.48 meters, a European record. The 1992 Olympic gold medalist in the 100 meters broke out in front at the start, then leaned into the tape to shade indoor world record-holder Bruno Surin of Canada by two-hundredths of a second. His mark bettered the 6.51 seconds he shared with several others. PGA 's Beman to step down MIAMI (AP) Deane Beman, who has presided over a 20-year period of enormous growth and prosperity and controversy has decided to step down as commissioner of the PGA Tour. Beman announced Tuesday he will not seek an extension of his contract, which runs through December, 1995. "He has done a tremendous job. He has given us a period of growth and prosperity that was unbelievable a few years ago, said Peter Jacobsen, a former player-director on the PGA Tournament Policy Board. "He will be missed. 1 don t think tne players will realize what a great job he has done, nor bow much be will be missed, until he leaves. The first thing I will say to him is: 'Don't go. We need you.' " Beman s announcement was made on tne 20tn anni versary of his appointment as successor to the late Joseph C. Dey, the Tour's first commissioner. "I have a strong desire to return to civilian Me; and if the old bones are willing, I expect to play some competitive golf," Beman said in a letter to the policy board dated March 1. . The 55-year-old Beman, a former U.S. and British Amateur champion and winner of four PGA Tour titles,1 said he hopes to compete in some Senior Tour events. I!

Georgia Tech at Florida State (9:00 p.m., ESPN). .. dates' only concern is finding the best SARASOTA. Fla. (AP) This season, there will only be one factor that matters when Baltimore Orioles manager Johnny Oates selects his 25-man roster. "I don't care if a guy is 100 years old or 18," Oates said before Tuesday's workout at Twin Lakes Park. "I'm only concerned with taking the best team north." "It means who can help us in '94," said Oates. "I'm going to recommend the 25 best players. In Oates' two previous training camps, sometimes there were underlying reasons behind the makeup of the final roster. He had to consider veteran leadership, minor league NBA options remaining, politics, numbers at a position and statistics. There won't be a repeat of last year, when the Orioles wasted a roster spot all season on Rule V draftee Sherman Obando, or last year's taking of Jeff Tackett over Mark Parent, who had better numbers but was older. Seven Orioles don't have minor league options remaining, meaning if they aren't on the final roster they can't be optioned to Class AAA Rochester unless they clear waivers. They are: Mark Eichhorn, Mike Cook, Barry Manual, Jim Poole, Leo Gomez, Tim Hulett and Mark McLemore. from page lb Mookie Blaylock set a franchise-record for steals in a quarter with six in the first period. He finished with a season-high eight to go with 14 points and 10 assists. The Hawks set a team record with 10 steals in the first period. Manning had two and Augmon one, and Blaylock converted Tour turnovers in the first 3' minutes as Atlanta built a 36-17 lead at the end of the quarter. Atlanta led 61-40 at the half en route to their fourth win in a row. The Hawks are 3-0 since the Wilkins-Manning trade and now have a two-game lead over Chicago in the Central Division. It was also the Hawks sixth straight win over the Timberwolves, who have lost 11 straight on the road. PacerS 106, Blazers 94 INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Rik Smits had 24 points and 13 rebounds, his fifth straight game with double Lions figures in both, as Indiana ended Portland's six-game winning streak. Reggie Miller scored 20 points for the Pacers, who have won three straight games, eight in a row at home and 13 of 15 overall. Indiana took control in a wild third quarter when the Blazers were called for two technical fouls and had their radio analyst, Mike Rice, ejected from press row by referee Steve Javie. The Pacers wiped out Portland's last lead, 51-50, with a 10-0 run that included a technical on Cliff Robinson, who objected when a foul call on Dale Davis was changed to a blocked shot. Rice was ejected after complaining to Javie. The Pacers put together an 8-0 run late in the period, which ended with Indiana ahead 81-70. During that run, Portland coach Rick Adel-man complained about a foul on Clyde Drexler against Miller. from page lb "We stopped attacking," Daugh-erty said. "In the timeout we said 'Don't throw the ball away.' Calvert is a big scorer off the transition. If you don't give them transitions, you have a good chance of beating them." For the game, the Cavaliers led, 29-27, under the boards. Queen Anne's out-scored Calvert, 14-11, for the rest of the period and were within six going into the fourth by scoring the final seven points after trailing, 58-44. In the fourth, the Cavaliers took advantage of nine turnovers and -scored, the opening 15 points in a ; seven-minute span. On defense Calvert sat back, harassing a dribbler or waiting for a lazy pass to set up their transition. NC "Calvert's whole game is defense, and if they make the steal, they'll make the run," Daugherty said. ' On offense, Calvert passed the ball around for minute-plus stands, daring the Lions to foul. Daman Graves finally broke the Lions' drought when he pocketed two free throws with 54 seconds left in the game. Unfortunately for Queen Anne's, it wasted a fine game on the line, hitting 12 of 16 attempts in front of a Lion-fan-packed house. Two booster buses brought 70 fans to root for the Lions. The Cavaliers matched the Lions with a ll-for-15 performance; Calvert travels to second-seeded Glen Bernie Thursday. from page lb "We have to rebound," Coleman said. "We aren't the type of team that can allow second chances." Snow Hill's offense slumped as the Bulldogs' scoring success made their defense more tenacious. Seward helped push the game into blowout stage with 2:31 left until halftime with consecutive point-producing steals. Seward plucked away a lazy pass from Eagle point guard Kaleemah Barckley and drove m for a layup, then .tore the ball away Mia Nelson and fed Lewis for a runner that upped the lead to 41-21. Snow Hill cut the deficit to 43-25 at halftime, but was unable to whittle the lead any smaller than 16 points in the second, half despite Coleman's imploring during timeouts. . Purnell, a senior who exited in a teary farewell with Coleman with 1:34 left, carried 58 percent of the Nancy Eagles' scoring load with 36 points. Only one other Eagle Tamar Ayres, 12 points scored more than six points. Pocomoke 83 Col. Richardson 59 . POCOMOKE CITY Pocomoke scored the game's first 19 points and then used a 29-8 run in the third quarter as the Warriors eliminated Colonel Richardson. Miketta Mills scored 38 points, including four three-pointers, to lead Pocomoke, which meets defending state champion Easton Thursday. Shante Taylor scored 11 for Pocomoke and Danielle Handy added 10. Colonel Richardson was led by Angel Nagel, who scored 19 of her 23 points in the fourth quarter. Rosalyn Ricketts scored 16 points and Stephanie Bell 10. from page lb Disney Co. and on Monday she signed a contract to appear in advertisements for Revlon. She is scheduled to host "Saturday Night Live" on March 12. But her image began to change almost minutes after Oksana Baiul of Ukraine edged her for the gold. When she was told, mistakenly, that the medal ceremony had been delayed because Baiul was redoing her 'makeup, an annoyed Kerrigan was heard on television saying: "Oh, come on. So she's going to get out here and cry again. What's the difference?" In interviews in the following days, she said she had skated flawlessly, that Baiul had not, and she questioned the judges for not deducting points for Baud's mistakes. She left Norway before the closing ceremonies to attend a parade at Disney World, even though Disney officials said the parade could have . been held another day. Callers to radio talk shows have begun voicing their disenchantment with Kerrigan. Some newspaper columnists are blasting her. Earlier this week, KNBC-TV broadcast a videotape of Kerrigan sitting in a Disney World parade next to a Mickey Mouse character. On the tape, Kerrigan could be heard saying: "This is so corny, this is so dumb. I hate it This is the most . corny thing I've ever done." . None of this, though, is enough to destroy her image or scare away corporate sponsors, analysts said. "If she continues, it will be very bad for her image," said David Burns of the Chicago-based Burns Sports Celebrity Service. But he said he's sure Kerrigan's agents will convince her "to stop expressing negatives in interviews." "That will stop, I can guarantee you," he said. Kerrigan's agent, Jerry Solomon, could not be reached for comment Tuesday. But Dewey B lan ton of ProServ issued a statement Tuesday night saying Kerrigan was disappointed at the "negative reaction and misinterpretation some of her recent comments had received." Of the comment about Baiul, Kerrigan said: "I was afraid the crowd was losing its enthusiasm and was starting to leave. It was not meant as a slight toward Oksana." Of the "corny" comment, she said: "I was not saying that the parade was corny or dumb. I enjoyed it tremendously. Riding down Main Street with Mickey Colts Of that group, Eichhorn and Poole are in the bullpen, Hulett will be a reserve infielder, and McLemore is slated to start at second base. That puts Manuel, Cook and Gomez in the position of not making any mistakes. Economics might also factor into the equation. If the Orioles wait until after March is to release a player, they are required to pay a 45-day severance salary rather than 30 days. Earlier in training camp, general manager Roland Hemond admitted he had spoken with several teams about a trade of either Gomez, or David Segui. Segui doesn't figure to see much time this year after the offseason acquisition of Rafael Palmeiro. Oates has announced his pitching rotation for the first two exhibition games Friday against Toronto in Dunedin and Saturday against St. Louis in St. Petersburg. t " i Alan Mills, Todd Frohwirth, John O'Donoghue, Mike Oquist, Manuel and Rick Krivda will work ligainst the Blue Jays, with none working over two innings.
