Lucas: Witness to a Rivalry

The Victory Bell is the enduring symbol of the Carolina-Duke football series. But in terms of seniority in the rivalry, it ranks a distant second. The Bell was created in the 1940s by Tar Heel cheerleader Norm Sper. Since then, it's been on the sidelines for six decades of football games. It's an impressive streak--but not as impressive as the one held by Charlotte's Elliott White. The retired pediatrician will be in Kenan Stadium on Nov. 19 for this year's 92nd meeting in the series. Of course, that's not unusual. Rather, it's exactly where he's been for the past 72 years. (Tar Heel Blue)
