It's sad that they did not identify the 15 year old as a kid.  Cops see our teenagers as adults.

Listen to the cops talk to each other in the video.

Every time I see this article, I feel badly for Fayetteville State.  He was a FSU alum first, one of the most prominent.  In addition, he donates to FSU; having pledged a million dollars a few years ago.

Alas, I see nothing but a tweet from FSU about him.  No news release on their main site.  What was I just saying about 'praise stories'?

Police review board looking into case of Durham officers who pulled guns on boys playing tag

DURHAM, N.C. — Almost a year after Durham police officers drew guns on two boys playing tag at an apartment complex, the boys' families said Thursday that they finally feel like they are moving closer to accountability for the incident.

Fifteen-year-old Jaylin Harris and Zakarryya Cornelius, who was a day shy of turning 9, said they were playing tag with a friend last August at the Rochelle Manor Apartments complex when the officers confronted them.

"As soon as we come around the corner, we walk into five cops pointing guns at us saying, 'Freeze!' and 'Get on the ground!'" Jaylin said at the time. "So, we were just thinking, like, what did we do? We didn’t even do anything wrong."

"I was just terrified," Zakarryya said.

Jaylin said the officers patted him down and handcuffed him, all while guns remained pointed at him and his young friends.

The Aggies could qualify more in the coming week as Christopher Belcher (200m), Rodney Rowe (200m) and Cambrea Sturgis (200m) compete this week.

Is there a reason why you left off members from each conference???

I was looking at football members.

Historically, the CIAA is a basketball conference.

Bring basketball games to Goldsboro, Wilmington, Asheville, Hickory, etc

Where in Goldsboro?

Anywhere! Goldsboro High ... South Wayne ... Mount Olive College ... We need to get in front of middle school and high school students.

Football classics can work; especially if it's an annual event.  Even then, those classic are mostly to please alumni living in those different regions.  Playing basketball in a high school gym makes you look small-time, and athletes and non-athlete recruits will notice.  I guess it's building your brand awareness; but this raises the question:  What is your brand?

In my opinion this isn't the most effective way to recruit traditional students.  You recruit Zers by operating in the same space as them via social media and the internet.  if your PR office isn't out building out your brand via blogs, videos, instagram stories, SEO, influencers, paid advertising, and consistent "praise stories" you're hustling backwards.

The non-D1 HBCUs that enjoy a national profile are well known because of their academic reputation (Morehouse, Tuskegee, Spelman, Fisk, Xavier, Clark Atlanta).  You won't realize a windfall at the D2 level; without a renown academic reputation. 

Birthrates are down, alumni are dying, and regional publics and privates are throwing money at talented minority students.  There is increased competition from skills based training providers which promise faster results and less money spent than traditional colleges.  Students are cost-conscious and don't care as much about the 'campus' experience; especially if it's not at one of the well-known institutions.  Traditional undergraduates are always going to be an important prospective student pool for colleges, but the smart money lies in recruiting non-traditional students.  The average college student is 26 years old.  What is your college's online learning strategy?  What about your college's non-credit learning strategy?  How can those strategies be leveraged to recruit these students?

Students have to see and feel the HBCU experience.  They have to see alumni in their community get excited about their alma mater. 

Yes it takes a total marketing strategy but our strength is in our passion.  I don't see a problem playing in a high school gym.  In the CIAA a number of the teams play in the equivalent of high school gyms and stadiums.

NCAT's Ross Punches Ticket to Tokyo Olympics

Fellow Aggie Trevor Stewart was also in the 400 final, pushing to finish fourth with a time of 44.90. Despite not finishing in the top three in the final, Stewart has a shot at making Team USA as part of the pool for the 4x400-meter relay -- as all 400 finalists do.

Ross, Jr., Stewart Are Headed to the Olympics

Ross Jr. finished third in the 400m final at the U.S. Olympic Trials.

Track & Field | 6/21/2021 1:38:00 AM

Story Links
EUGENE, Ore .—Duane Ross and his Randolph Ross Jr. are meticulous about how things operate at the track and away from the track. When it comes to business, Ross is the coach, and Ross Jr. is the athlete. Away from the track, Ross is the dad, and Ross Jr. is the son.

Please forgive them because that was not the case on Sunday evening at the U.S. Olympic Trials at the University of Oregon's Hayward Field. When your 20-year-old son makes the U.S. Olympic team on Father's Day and is going to represent his country, all that edict mumbo jumbo gets thrown out of the proverbial window.

Ross Jr. is headed to the 2021 Tokyo Olympics starting July 23 and ending on August 8.

"The father came out in me," said Ross. "For him to do something at this level, at his age, he had me in tears."

A few more Aggies are going to the Olympics. Trevor Stewart will be a part of the 4x400-meter relay team in Tokyo. Akeem Sirleaf will run for Lithuania, and Daniel Stokes will compete for Mexico.

The Aggies have their first Olympians since Troy Douglas and Ruth Morris participated in the Olympics in 1992. The Trials will continue into next week.
