Those struggling to pay for higher education might find it hard to shed a tear for athletes on full scholarships. But a new study shows many don't get the "free ride" they may have been promised - even as colleges and coaches reap the rewards of their athletic prowess. Even with a scholarship covering tuition, fees, room, board, and books, a Division I student-athlete can expect nearly $3,000 a year in other school-related expenses, says the study by Ithaca College professor Ellen J. Staurowsky and the National College Players Association.

IN THE FIRST game of his youth baseball career, 9-year-old Zach Spiker stood in the on-deck circle, with the game tied in the bottom of the ninth inning. Spiker sprinted from the dugout, bat in hand, to get a few practice swings in. The batter ahead of him walked. The bases were loaded. Spiker was going to get a shot at winning the thing. He trotted to the batter's box with a confidence - not a cockiness, his father, John, asserts years later - that he has since carried with him at all times.

When he was hired in 1977 at age 23 to coach Trenton State, Eric Hamilton became the youngest college football coach in America. Having played center at Trenton from 1971 to 1974, Hamilton knew his hiring was not the move of a risk-taking administration bent on future football success. "Football wasn't very good here, and it obviously wasn't a priority," Hamilton said. "They were just looking for someone to keep it going, nothing more, nothing less. In fact, they were de-emphasizing it. " Shortly after noon on Saturday, Hamilton will lead his team onto the field against Ithaca College in New York for the first postseason game in Trenton State's history, the NCAA Division III Eastern semifinal.

Robert "Gorilla Monsoon" Marella, 62, a professional wrestler whose demeanor in the ring resembled Atilla the Hun's but whose deeds and personality were more akin to those of Santa Claus, died yesterday at his Willingboro home after being ill for the last month. During his career, which lasted from 1959 to 1980, the name "Gorilla Monsoon" was often used to describe people who were more than just big or tough. He wrestled in more than 8,000 matches worldwide and was inducted into the World Wrestling Federation Hall of Fame in 1994.
