Acting is hard work, but worth it

April 18, 2010


I never considered myself to be much of an actor. Fact is, the last major performance I ever did came when I was 9 years old, in 1995 when I was part of a performing arts camp. That performance included people like Willard Pugh from the Color Purple and Ruby Wilson. Fifteen years later, that […]

You gotta love Avery and Hollywood

April 6, 2010

In today’s game against the Reddies (does anyone know what […]

December 1, 2009


CBU basketball players show off their new Elite Eight rings, November 28, 2009 During the final seconds of Monday’s game against Alabama-Huntsville, Zack Warner was at the free throw line trying to ice the victory. “Act like you’re Albert Pujols,” someone said, “Pujols facing Brad Lidge.” “Albert Pujols?” senior Dylan Heim said to the person.
