Eagles out to prove last season no fluke
Thursday, August 27, 2015
DURHAM – The theme for North Carolina Central’s football season is “Leave No Doubt.” After last season’s surprising (to some) co-MEAC championship, coach Jerry Mack doesn’t want to share in his second season. He wants the trophy outright. Last year was a momentum-builder for the Eagles in so many areas: a new and younger
 
Will the South rise again?
Thursday, August 27, 2015
The South Division lost in the CIAA championship game for the first time in 11 seasons, not counting 2013’s cancelled game. Can it regain control?

And a year might not be enough time for the rest of the world to catch up. Battling perfection as much as the rest of the field, Biles soared to her third straight U.S.
 
Can Virginia State repeat?
Thursday, August 20, 2015
The CIAA crowned a new football champion last season for the first time in four years. But with Latrell Scott leaving Virginia State for the MEAC’s Norfolk State, coaches returned their attention to Winston-Salem State, which was picked No. 1 overall.

From obscurity to All-American
Thursday, August 20, 2015
RICHMOND, Virginia – Two years ago, Addison Hayes was toiling in obscurity. He was a defensive lineman on a Virginia Union football team loaded with defensive talent. In two seasons for VUU, Hayes had a total of 19 tackles. Those aren't numbers to write home about. But when Mark James became head coach of the Panthers in 2014, he saw potential for
