Devante Wedlock excelled on both sides of the ball for the reigning conference champion, JV Falcons of 71st last night in a scrimmage against Southern Durham. Wedlock starts at Fullback and Linebacker and helped lead his squad to a perfect season and said his team looks to continue the streak the year.

“Today’s scrimmage was a great opportunity for us to make contact with someone on a different team,” he said. “We know people have set high expectations for us but we’re still going to take everything one step at a time. We worked hard this summer and we’re going to be ready for this season and be ready at all times to help varsity with anything.”

Wedlock set the tone by scoring on the first drive of the scrimmage. On a QB bootleg, Wedlock was open in the flats and managed to break 4 tackles on his way to the endzone. Wedlock recorded 5 tackles but the entire defensive proved too much for the Southern Durham offense. Tonight the Falcons travel across town to the City Wide Jamboree at Fayetteville State University and officially open the season against Northern Durham next week.

Chris Cooper has been regarded as one of the most dominant athletes from South Carolina. This fall he returns to the gridiron to suit up for Greensboro College, where his performance on the field earned him the name “SuperCoop”, by his fans. Like many college athletes, Cooper had to take time from school, but unlike his counterparts, he used that time to focus on himself and remain in top physical condition. Cooper said his family is what kept him focused.

“I’m really excited to return. I’m going to miss my family and friends, but at the same time I have to go back to college for me,” he said. “Thanks to my family and friends for everything and I’m going to see everybody after the season.”

Cooper might not return home to Mullins directly after the season, as his name has been mentioned in conversations about next year’s NFL Draft. Greensboro kicks off against Guilford College Sat Sept. 3, but the game most family and friends will attend is the Nov. 5th game in Fayetteville against Methodist University.

Earlier this summer she released her new clothing line called Blocked. Tawan said she got the name from her actions online.

“We’re opinionated people and I stand for what I believe in, and whether I express it on air,online or in person, I say what I mean and mean  what I say,” she said. “I don’t mind a conversation with people, but some people want to argue online, so instead of going back and forth with people, they just get Blocked.”

Once Tawan announced the release of her clothing line, her listeners from different parts of the country started placing orders. Purchase your orders for your apparel to let your haters know they have been #Blocked, by logging onto http://shop.spreadshirt.com/tawan/

College football coaches have visited Fayetteville, NC over the last couple of months and one name that has continued to pop up in conversation is Devante Wedlock. The two-sport athlete is an honor roll student at 71st High School, Student Class Vice President, and remains active in auxiliaries with two churches (Beauty Spot, Lewis Chapel). Even though Wedlock’s resume is what college coaches want on their campus, there’s only one problem, he’s a freshman. Wedlock said his grades are most important.

“I want to play sports on the collegiate level, and I know how much of an impact grades play with recruitment. I make sure I’m excelling in the classroom just as much as on the field,” Wedlock said.

Wedlock is wrapping up his freshman year in style. He started at Fullback, Linebacker and handled the kicking duties for the undefeated JV Falcons. Instead of running track, he insisted on playing baseball. Despite not throwing a baseball in 5 years, Wedlock accepted the challenge and started  this season at  3rd base for the JV Falcons and displayed one of the best Batting Averages in the region.  Wedlock said the key to being active is time management and discipline.

“I do not watch as much TV as I used to and I drink a lot more water. My coaches remind us of the importance of remaining hydrated during the season as well as the off season, so I drink as much water as I can everyday” he said.

Wedlock will be heading into his Sophomore season in August and is currently training to make sure this season will be just as successful as the last.

It’s 5PM  on a sunny afternoon at the Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville, NC and she’s one of the first students to arrive for the 6:30PM graduation.  She just spent the free time taking selfies, updating her Facebook and greeting her fellow classmates for the final time. However, Valerie Wedlock’s story started a long time ago in Berryville, Va. She was in the first class of black students to integrate white schools.

The harsh reality she faced while attending the recently segregated schools, where faculty was not accustomed to and despised black students only made her stronger and walk with the Lord, that much closer.  Friday May 6, the 20 year veteran teacher of Cumberland County and Ft. Bragg Schools walked across the stage in front of 7,000 people in attendance at the Crown Coliseum. Family from Virginia, church members and friends witnessed and congratulated Wedlock on her achievement. Wedlock currently teaches at Owen Elementary and said that education is very important.

“It doesn’t matter how old or young you are, education will always be important,” she said. “I have had plenty of late nights and early mornings completing my work but life is all about sacrifices and now that I have completed this portion of the journey, I can tell you it was worth it”.

Wedlock’s journey doesn’t end here, she will continue working towards her Bachelors degree in the fall. Wedlock was the keynote speaker Saturday May 21 at New Genesis Fresh Start Mininistries Women’s Conference speaking on “The Character of a Christian Woman”.

When it comes to the Hip Hop scene in SC, Dan Johns has played an imperative part for over a decade. He would easily be considered the hardest working man in the industry, only if he was the type of person to take credit for every single thing he does.Johns is responsible for the production of the music of rappers and singers, the photography of High School Seniors, models and TV personalities, and even earned writing credits for The Krew’s topics and laid the vocals for the intro.

Johns is also a member of the rap group The Divine Suns and recently released his solo project “Endangered” on Tidal and also co hosts a Podcast. Johns said he likes to keep busy on different projects

“If I am not busy doing something or working on my craft, I feel uncomfortable,” Johns said.

Outside of all of the projects he is working on, Johns always finds the time to take care of the most important team, his family.

“Family first, always. And I have resigned to the fact that Dan and Daniel are the same person, my wife has too. I invest multimedia money into home projects, or buy her nice things with it,” Johns said.
