From baseball to javelin, UNC thrower aims high

When it comes to throwing the javelin North Carolina's Houston Summers is about as new as it gets. "I had never even been to a track meet before, and I'd never even touched a javelin in my life," said Summers. But Summers is no ordinary student-athlete, he’s a 25-year-old college freshman, back in school after spending 6 years playing minor league baseball. (WRAL Sports Fan)
