With summer coming fast, it’s time to check in on the latest happenings in the Heisman world.
Here’s a profile on Doug Flutie, who was the keynote speaker at the TCPalm sports awards in Fort Pierce, Fla.
“I say this in all honesty,” Flutie told the student-athletes. “I played 21 years in professional football, Heisman Trophy at Boston College and all that stuff. I’d trade places with you in a heartbeat just to have the chance to do it all again. It’s the thrill of the journey; the journey is what it’s all about.”
The Hickory Crawdads sold out four games with the Fireflies. Hickory’s total of 17,500 fans for the series surpassed the 15,900 they drew their first eight games.
“We had 4,500 people in the stands,” Crawdads season-ticket holder Christopher Pack said, “and 4,300 were there to see Tim Tebow.”
