After free lessons to local kids, NFL kicker Barth readies for camp

The tradition of special teams play, particularly the kicking game in football, has grown over the years at Hoggard High School and across Wilmington thanks to the Barth family. On Tuesday night, more than 65 kids were at Scott Braswell Stadium for a laid back but informative workout session alongside NFL veteran Connor Barth.

UNC's Open Competition at Right Guard

UNC’s offensive line, considered by many to be one of the ACC’s best, was dealt a preseason blow last week with the news that likely starting right guard John Ferranto would miss the 2016 season after suffering a torn left pectoral muscle. Junior Brad Henson and redshirt freshman Nick Polino were listed on UNC’s preseason depth chart as the backups at the guard positions.

Forecasting a Clemson-UNC rematch in ACC football title game

Since the ACC went to divisions in 2005, reporters attending the ACC’s media days — we meet Thursday and Friday in Charlotte, N.C. — have picked Clemson or Florida State to win the Atlantic. That’s unlikely to change this season. Conversely, the Coastal remains baffling, relegating media to wandering aimlessly for a clue, as if playing Pokemon Go.

Four focal points leading into the ACC’s Football Kickoff event this week in Charlotte

How much will UNC miss Marquise Williams’ legs? The Tar Heels’ pocket passing game should be just as productive now that Mitch Trubisky moves up to replace the departed Williams at quarterback. But an undeniable offensive variable has to be all that Williams created with his quickness, intuition and uncanny ability to turn scrambles into explosion plays.

UNC Top 25 Wins of 2015-16: No. 3

No. 3: No. 12 Carolina 30, Virginia Tech 27 (OT) - Football, Nov. 21, 2015: It was fitting that the Hokies stood in the way of Carolina's first trip to the ACC Championship Game when the Tar Heels visited Blacksburg on November 21. UNC had dismantled Miami 59-21 one week earlier, while VT was coming off back-to-back road wins at Boston College and Georgia Tech.

UNC Athletics Ends Sale of Star Jersey Numbers

In a response to player likeness concerns, UNC will no longer sell official uniforms with jersey numbers that match current standout players. Football isn’t the only sport at UNC affected by the change in philosophy. The basketball team plans to offer the No. 1 and possibly a retired number -- like Tyler Hansbrough’s No. 50 -- changed on a season-by-season basis.

Darian Durant injured again in Riders' third straight loss

And here we go again. Another sighting of Darian Durant on crutches already has fans on the post game phone-in shows calling the season a write-off. And we're only three games in. The Riders' franchise player, coming off consecutive season-ending injuries, went down again in the 2nd quarter.

College Football's Top 25 Breakout Quarterbacks for 2016

3. Mitch Trubisky, UNC: Trubisky inherits a loaded group of skill players and four returning starters on one of the ACC’s top offensive lines. Trubisky played in nine games last fall and completed 40 of 47 throws for 555 yards and six scores. He also rushed for 101 yards and three touchdowns. All signs point to Trubisky thriving in his first season as the No. 1 quarterback.

Bruce Carter looking prove himself with NY Jets

Bruce Carter has spent part of his offseason in Dallas training. The Havelock native has especially been working on his explosion and strength. Carter, a 6-foot-2 linebacker, is approaching training camp with his new team and with a large chip on his shoulder. This offseason, Carter signed a one-year, $3 million contract with the New York Jets – his third NFL team in six seasons.

Today’s U CFB Preseason Top 25: No. 22 North Carolina

If Mitch Trubisky is up to the task and UNC’s defense holds its ground, the Tar Heels have the makings of a special season. But UNC’s gains could be mitigated by a brutal schedule. There’s a “neutral-site’’ opener against Georgia (at Atlanta’s Georgia Dome), along with ACC road games at Florida State and Miami. Winning the Coastal again seems like the minimum bar.
