Quarterback Joe Ferguson says his move from the Buffalo Bills to the Detroit Lions has given him a new lease on his NFL career. "It's kind of refreshing and exciting to go to a new place," Ferguson said during the Lions' mini camp at Oakland University in Rochester. "It's kind of brought a new life and more enthusiasm than I had before." Ferguson, a 12-year veteran out of Arkansas, was acquired by the Lions in an April 30 trade.

Last year's bench coach, Joe Ferguson, was replaced this season by Bill Russell. But Ferguson, who is in his eighth year as a Dodger coach, is still working with the catchers in practice and is now positioning Dodger fielders from the press box during games. There is nothing scientific, though, about the way Ferguson relays information to the bench. "Billy looks up at me in the press box and I give him the signs," Ferguson said. "Then he relays them to the fielders."

It was shocking because: -- The visiting Cowboys never trailed in beating Saugus for the first time in five meetings, a span of two years. -- In a fierce battle in which bodies collided beneath both baskets, Canyon forward Joe Ferguson scored virtually all of his game-high 25 points on simple inside baseline bank shots.

The Dodgers hired ex-catcher Joe Ferguson, 38, to be their "Eye in the Sky," the coach who sits in the press box and positions the outfielders. But Tuesday, they brought Ferguson down to earth--as a pinch-hitter for Ed Amelung--and he delivered a ninth-inning single off pitcher John Franco in the Dodgers' 2-0 exhibition loss to Cincinnati here. Ferguson's at-bat may not have been just for the exercise.

As difficult as it is for high school football players--even great ones-- to catch the eye of a college recruiter, imagine how frustrating it must be for a gifted player on a team that was 2-8 last season, and is 0-2 this season. And the fact that he's an offensive lineman, stuck in the trenches away from the publicity and limelight that showers the so-called "skill-position" players, increases the degree of difficulty.

Joe Ferguson is a throwback to another era when football was played for something more than money. Ferguson, 36, is in his 14th season. He'll be 37 before he starts his 15th campaign, but he still has things he wants to do in this increasingly rough sport. Things young quarterbacks, with their briefcases and stock portfolios, might not understand.
