Florida State University beat Georgia Tech University on to win the ACC Championship 37-35. Their continuing trend of winning games in the last few minutes or final drive has many wondering if they deserve to be in the position they currently hold.
Starting in the spring of 2015, Jacksonville will have its first professional soccer club when the Jacksonville Armada FC kick off.
Joan Brown Campbell’s recent speech on religious tolerance proved timelier than ever when a NFL referee penalized a player for performing a Muslim prayer on the field the same night.
As an avid football fan, I was surprised to see the media’s reaction to the first openly gay player, Michael Sam. Honestly, I didn’t think it deserved that much attention. Last time I checked, most football fans don’t care about the love life of the players.

Star athletes like former Pedro Menendez linebacker Tony Steward don’t come around very often.
Like so many other studs, Steward has all of the athletic accolades that, for most of us, exist only in dreams. For the 2011 recruiting class, he was ranked as the country’s 13th overall prospect, according to rivals.com. Furthermore, Steward’s exceptional talents earned him a scholarship to continue his career at Clemson University.

Flagler just wrapped up another amazing football season after defeating the UNF Ospreys in a nail biter. The Saints trailed for most of what was one of the best games in Flagler history.
With three seconds left in the fourth quarter, Saints quarterback Gavin Richardson threw a bomb deep down the field to a crowded end zone. Somehow, from out of the crowd, Antonio Marconi managed to catch the pigskin after it was deflected off of a UNF defenders helmet.
