#WNSTSweet16 – The 16 local athletes who never won a title, but deserved to win one

January 28, 2014 | Drew Forrester


Few athletes in Baltimore sports history have contributed as much to the community as ex-Baltimore Colts defensive lineman Joe Erhmann, who was the team’s first round draft pick in 1973 and spent eight seasons in Baltimore.  Erhmann was part of a strong defense that helped the Colts win three straight AFC East crowns (’75-’77) but never won a championship in his pro football career. Off the field, Erhmann has been a pillar of the Baltimore community, both in athletics and spiritually, serving as a coach for the Gilman (HS) football team and the Pastor of the 4,000 member Grace Fellowship Church in Baltimore.  His book — InSideOut Coaching — is one of the great modern books about coaching and how sports can transform the life of a young man or woman.

    Great list. My only quibble is including Rosie Napravnick. She is entering the prime of her jockey career. Given her familiarity with Pimlico, Belmont and Churchill (where she is based in May and June) she will have many more cracks at a Triple Crown win.
