2012 Around the Mid-Atlantic columns

November 14, 2012 Bahamian gets a kick out of playing football When the soccer player known as "Boomstick" realized he had one season of eligibility left at Maryville, it was suggested he give placekicking a try. After only a couple of games, he's already in the Scots' record book.

November 7, 2012 Competitive Centennial teams have their ups and downs Franklin and Marshall has bounced back from a 3-7 campaign last season to being an outside playoff contender this year. But not all teams are striding forward. McDaniel is unexpectedly still hunting for win No. 1.

October 30, 2012 Hollis is NCWC's game-changer Dwayne Hollis is the kind of defender who "can flip the field position for us on one play," his coach says. And Hollis is living the caliber of games that other players only dream of.

October 23, 2012 Come game day, the Blue Jays persevere Despite graduating key athletes last year, undefeated Johns Hopkins is in control of its own destiny through the rest of the conference slate -- and these players are eager to make their own mark.

October 16, 2012 Neighboring schools find simultaneous success New energy has accompanied the new leadership in Greensboro, N.C., and the city's two Division III programs, Greensboro and Guilford colleges, are reaping the benefits on the field.

October 10, 2012 Moravian punter gets off on the right foot -- and the left Moravian's Tyler Thompson punts equally well with either foot, making him the ultimate X-factor on special teams. But there's something else he works doubly hard at: being a two-sport athlete during the fall.

October 2, 2012 W&L's Heinsohn breathes life into family legacy Being a third-generation Washington and Lee student, if Luke Heinsohn felt any pressure to be a star for the Generals, he never showed it. Since his sophomore year, though, he has been part of the backbone of the dominant W&L run game.

September 25, 2012 Players do well at doing good Players such as Ursinus' Tony Rosa and Franklin and Marshall's Chad Tothero who devote what little free time and energy they have to charitable causes have learned that they benefit as much as those they help.

September 18, 2012 Offseason housefire welds team more tightly together In January, two Hampden-Sydney standouts fought for their lives after a fire destroyed their home. Though those two athletes graduated, the remaining members of the team are holding each win -- and each moment -- to be more precious than before.

September 11, 2012 Wesley has first-rate secondary Stellar secondary play has been a key to Wesley’s success in recent years, and after just two games this fall, the Wolverines are on pace to break school records for most interceptions and takeaways in a season.

September 4, 2012 100th career win looms for Mules coach Every game is important, but Mules coach Mike Donnelly is one game away from his 100th career win. And on Saturday, his protege, F&M coach John Troxell, is the one standing in the way of that milestone.

August 28, 2012 10 games to watch for 2012 Adam Turer knows you're hungry for football. And as he introduces himself to you, he also introduces you to the best games to expect going into the fall. From potent playoff contender Wesley to the storied rivalry known as The Game, it's all there.
