A dream come true

Joel Abney originally signed his young son up for flag football, but Christian Abney begged his dad to let him play tackle. He told his dad he was ready for the next level. After talking to coaches, he switched his son to tackle.

SCOTT: Brett Farve's career accolades do not outweigh his controversies

Favre's career should never outweigh his controversies. The privilege he has obtained for being a hall of fame quarterback has been developed into a crutch he's used to overlook his wrong doing.  Just because a player has a one in a lifetime career doesn't mean he or she has the right to commit devious acts with the intentions to hide from it and not acknowledge any wrongdoing.

JOSLIN: Low attendance for Ball State football needs to be fixed

I have been going to Ball State University games since I was 10. I was born in Muncie and grew up in New Castle. Ball State has been a constant in my life for as long as I can remember, and I take great pride and passion in this school and our teams.  I vividly remember the first game I saw; we were playing South Florida in October 2012. Keith Wenning and Willie Snead were tearing up the Bulls’ defense en route to a 31-27 triumph that day. That was the first time I got to experience the magic of college football, live and in living color.

GOINS: The magic number 62

Now that Aaron Judge has hit his 62nd home run, you shouldn’t have to worry about the TV cutting away when college football is on to show you Aaron Judge’s at-bats. Who knows if we will ever see a player so dominant that his at-bats interfered with a college football game again? Will ever see 62 home runs hit again? Or Barry Bond’s total of 73 broken? These are questions baseball fans wish they had the answers to, but only time knows the answer.
