FIRST AND GOAL: Overnight success

When coach Jeff Craddock moved UNC recruit Shaun Draughn to tailback prior to last season, Craddock's expectations were modest. But the fall of 2004 was the season of epiphanies. After another dazzling run from Draughn, Craddock turned to an assistant and coughed out his assessment. "I don't know where it came from so quickly," Craddock told his assistant, "but we could ride him to the conference championship." Soon, more people took notice. Important people. Scholarship-carrying people. (Rocky Mount Telegram)
