    I guess you could say my journalism career began about the time I won “Best Storyteller” in my kindergarten class. I’m a proud graduate of Winston-Salem State University, where I worked at the school newspaper for four years, three as sports editor and one as editor-in-chief.

    Sometimes, off-season training regimens can become boring. Mundane.  Tiresome.  Others can be the type that elongate a career, energize a player, and improve an athlete's quality of life, both on the field and off.  Mike Tolbert hopes he's come across his version of the latter.

Cam Newton has a reputation for being somewhat brash, but the Carolina Panthers quarterback showed his softer side with a touching tribute to fallen teammate. Newton took to Facebook to write a compelling post to his former teammate Phillip Lutzenkirchen, who was killed in a car accident early Sunday morning.

Newton began his post by questioning why the former Auburn tight end's death.

“But as I sit and think about it, I do know that God makes NO mistakes,” he said.

“If anything, for everyone who's sees this; I challenge you to forgive whatever someone did to you, tell/text someone "you love them", or even help someone who is having a "not so good day" because one thing I do know is that LIFE IS TO SHORT for someone to be holding grudges and for you not to be at peace with yourself at the end of the day!”

Lutzenkirchen and Newton played together on the Auburn team that won the 2010 BCS National Championship.

"GOOD-BYE! Or should I say SEE YOU LATER "LUTZ"! Newton said. "See you on the other side of the pearly gates my teammate, my friend, MY BROTHER who was truly an AUburn Man! WAR EAGLE my man, WE WILL MISS YOU!!"

    We all have heard of the saying, “a dog is a man’s best friend," it may sound a bit cliche but it’s true for Fred Shrill and his dog Tucker. “I wouldn’t take the world or him,” said Fred as he smiled.

    Friday, for my assignment, I was tasked with a ride-along in a Global Rallycross car, at The Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Cars that go zero-to-60 in 1.9 seconds -- that's faster than a formula one car. We're talking about machines with absurd power. Not a bad gig... But enough to make you a little skittish...
