Athletes taking extra steps to avoid the spread of H1N1

Athletes are usually focused on game plans and matchups, but now they have to worry about illness, too. The team physicians and trainers in the Sports Medicine department have emphasized preventative measures to keep teams healthy this year. "We have not really changed what we have done [in the past]," said Chris Jones, director of Sports Medicine. The physicians and trainers meet with teams before the season to remind them of the proper hygiene practices that help stop the spread of infection, Jones said. "A lot of things are common sense, but not common practice," he said. Mike London, head football coach, said: "We hope to hammer the message home that you have to be very mindful about what you do so you do not open yourself up to those issues.

Football's offensive line hungry for wins, pasta

During the past two seasons, the University of Richmond football team has won a National Championship and a Colonial Athletic Association conference championship, produced the two leading rushers and touchdown scorers in team history and set the team record for most rushing yards during a single game. Fifth-year seniors Matt McCracken, Mike Silva, Chris Kondorossy and Jared Decker, along with junior Drew Lachenmayer, have helped produce these record-breaking statistics and will try to improve their already impressive resumes on the offensive line this season. The line is led by McCracken, a three-time All-American left guard, who is also one of the team's captains this season.
