Meet The Jumpman

For decades, the No. 23 has been synonymous with Michael Jordan, prompting millions of athletes to don the number in his honor.

Raiders RB Elijah Hood Battles For Roster Spot In Camp

There’s a reason Oakland drafted Elijah Hood in the seventh round. The 5-foot-11, 230-pound former Tar Heel is a banger who fits well with Oakland’s blocking scheme. Patterning himself after Marshawn Lynch, the Raiders need as much power they can get. He isn’t going to make defenders miss often. He’s more apt to lower his shoulder to run through defenders.

How you can support Woody Durham, the former ‘Voice of the Tar Heels,’ in his fight against aphasia

It was the phrase that Woody Durham, the longtime voice of UNC’s men’s basketball and football teams, often repeated during a game’s most dramatic moments, one he used to urge Tar Heels fans to practice their most trusted superstition: “Go where you go, and do what you do.” And now you can find it on T-shirts that are being sold to benefit research of aphasia.
