2010 Around the Mid-Atlantic columns

November 17, 2010 Ferrum, Methodist coaches bid farewell Dave Davis and Jim Sypult might not have gone out on top in the USA South, but they each retired on their own terms this season.

November 10, 2010 W&L finds success in its youth Not only was coach Frank Miriello fielding one of his youngest and most inexperienced teams ever, the season also turned out to be as emotional for him as it was exciting.

November 2, 2010 Wesley leaves ACFC with title All preconceived notions are set aside when Salisbury’s triple option takes the field, but Wesley's defense handled it with style and took the final ACFC title with it.

October 26, 2010 Former Pro Bowler settles in at Shenandoah Most of Shenandoah’s players don’t recognize Joe Jacoby’s name the first time they meet him. The imposing figure that he is -- a four-time Pro Bowl offensive lineman who has multiple Super Bowl rings -- is known by just one name to the students: coach.

October 19, 2010 Coaches with a cause Franklin and Marshall coach John Troxell gives of his time to Lauren's First and Goal Foundation, to help fight pediatric cancer. More in this week's Around the Mid-Atlantic.

October 12, 2010 Going full circle The growing pains were short, and Averett is suddenly on a roll. Ryan Tipps talks with coach Mike Dunlevy in this week's Around the Mid-Atlantic.

October 5, 2010 Finally getting his shot in the booth For a long time, Bern Gavlick wanted to be the play-by-play man for Ursinus. He grew up with a football coach for a father. He knew the Bears players and staff. He had previous experience as a hockey broadcaster. He also has cerebral palsy.

September 28, 2010 Back balances field and fatherhood Many students find it challenging to balance homework, athletics and maybe even a part-time job. Then try adding three kids into the mix.

September 21, 2010 Athletes' good works get noticed The AFCA Good Works team nearly snubbed D-III entirely this season, picking just one instead of the average of four. Ryan Tipps writes about two who were deserving.

September 14, 2010 Coming out of nowhere Ahead of the 2008 season, Bill Doody was hoping for little more than a place on Hampden-Sydney’s roster and, if things really worked out, a chance to make the travel roster.

September 7, 2010 Big drama on the small stage in Annville, Pa., far away from the bright lights of suburban Washington and the glint of television cameras, drama unfolded between Gettysburg and Lebanon Valley.

August 30, 2010 Growing into the columnist role This is sort of like my senior year of column writing. I began writing Around the Mid-Atlantic in 2007.
