DURHAM — The Carolina All-Stars/NC Flight Girls Basketball Organization is pleased to announce that Kristen Lyon has verbally committed to play for Coach Karen Middleton at Western Carolina University.

North Carolina Central University Head Football Coach Mose Rison has named Durham native Michael Johnson his starting quarterback for the 2009 football season.

Johnson, a 6-foot-2, 222-pound sophomore from Hillside High School, was pressed into action last season due to multiple injuries at the quarterback position.

His college debut came in the fifth game of the season at Presbyterian College. There, Johnson came off the bench to complete 8-of-9 passes for 159 yards and two touchdowns to bring the Eagles back from a 28-10 deficit.

N.C. Central kicks off its 2009 football season at Hampton University at 6:00 on Saturday, September 5th.

Top N.C. OL prospect narrows his list to three

Recruiting fans in the Cumberland County area will get a special treat Friday when one of the state's top uncommitted prospects comes to town.

Seventy-First will play a Wilmington Hoggard squad at Loyd Auman Stadium that features 6-foot-7, 300-pound offensive tackle T.J. Leifheit.

Leifheit has received scholarship offers from more than 30 major programs, but Hoggard coach Scott Braswell said Tuesday that list is now down to three schools - LSU, North Carolina and Southern Cal.

Braswell, who coached the Vikings to a state title in 2007, has plenty of experience with high-profile recruits. Most recently that involved offensive lineman Jonathan Cooper, who signed with North Carolina in February 2008.

Cooper was highly recruited, too, but Leifheit is being pursued on a national level.

"I think most of the kids I've had in the past have really just looked local for their options, or regional for their options,'' Braswell said. "He's traveled a little

Justin Dixon enrolls at East Carolina


Aug 25, 2009

Justin Dixon might be playing college football in North Carolina after all, just not for the Tar Heels.

Dixon, who graduated from Smithfield-Selma high school last year, signed on to play football with UNC earlier this year. However, after failing to qualify academically, the star linebacker was forced to consider other options - including spending time at prep school or enrolling at a different FBS school.

In the end, Dixon chose the latter.

A spokesman with the East Carolina football team confirmed to WRAL that he will begin classes at ECU on Tuesday.

Dixon was one of the most heralded signees in UNC's 2009 class. Rated the ninth-best inside linebacker in the nation by Rivals.com, the 6-foot-1 playmaker was considered a four-star recruit.

Though Dixon is scheduled to begin classes Tuesday, ECU spokesman Tom McClellan said the NCAA Eligibility Center is still reviewing his eligibility status. Therefore, there is no word yet on when, or if, he will be able
