Like father, like son for Austin Proehl

Nothing Ricky Proehl did as a coach or has done since as a coach compares to watching his son Austin Proehl, a senior at Charlotte's Providence High, sign with North Carolina. Proud father moments usually do outweigh individual accomplishments -- even if the father went to Wake Forest, an ACC rival of UNC. "A year prior to this there wasn't a whole lot of options," Ricky said. "He worked his tail off in the offseason, went to some camps and opened some eyes." Good coaching didn't hurt. (ESPN.com)
