2011 Around the Mid-Atlantic columns

November 15, 2011 Muhlenberg is where McDonough’s heart is Pat McDonough has spent much of his life on the move. “Looking back on it, I never really realized that this is probably the longest place I’ve been. It is my home. I enjoy the people, the coaches, the community.”

November 8, 2011 CNU proves averse to adversity On its second running back and third quarterback, Christopher Newport rolls to the USA South automatic bid. More on the Captains' course in Around the Mid-Atlantic.

November 1, 2011 15 years of friendship Kirk Rohle's and Ben Rogers' friendship has now survived 15 years and multiple teams, culminating with playing together at Hampden-Sydney. Ryan Tipps has more in Around the Mid-Atlantic.

October 25, 2011 Receiver embodies D-III spirit Some told Kyle Feldman it’s too difficult to juggle grad school and football. But to someone who works as hard in all phases of life as Feldman does, handling difficulties is second nature.

October 18, 2011 Hopkins has hints of history from which to learn The Centennial Conference has often been decided by tiebreakers in recent years, but the Blue Jays are going to try to avoid that in 2011.

October 11, 2011 Averett's fallen family member Rick and Peter Quintanilla didn’t choose to cut short their Averett football careers -- it was forced upon them. Rick's battle with cancer continues to resonate with a team that barely knew them. More in Around the Mid-Atlantic.

October 4, 2011 The little big man at McDaniel At 5-6, Joe Rollins might be the shortest guy his McDaniel teammates look up to. More in Around the Mid-Atlantic.

September 27, 2011 Foundations of a first impression Dave Harper spent nearly two decades as an assistant at Ferrum. And while the landscape isn't entirely new in his first year as head coach, it's certainly been rugged.

September 20, 2011 CUA has the fire to fight back The first three games had finishes that were enthralling for fans and helped to get people talking about CUA football again. But as exciting as they were, the team seeks consistency and discipline.

September 13, 2011 A tough call that can't go wrong Wesley and Maryville each were in an enviable position this season: choosing between two experienced starting quarterbacks.

September 6, 2011 Making a mark with the family name Football is a family tradition for the Pughs. But what’s unusual for them is seeing one of their own wearing Emory & Henry’s blue and gold uniform.

August 29, 2011 Growing, maturing week after week A season is more than the anticipation of the beginning and the excitement of the finale. The middle, meaty part of the fall is when we watch teams develop. The team that began the season is, at the end, the same in name only.
