Hurricanes Football Spring Preview

The Hurricanes have many positions up in the air as summer gets under way.

Hurricanes Football Spring Preview

The University of Miami has a strong recruiting class for the impending 2018-2019 season. This is the most promising team the Hurricanes have had in recent memory. While the quarterback position is still up in the air between Malik Rosier and N’Kosi Perri, many crucial and experienced players are returning. At the running back position, incoming freshman Lorenzo Lingard is itching for his opportunity to shine. However, he will have to compete with rising junior Travis Homer. Homer rushed for 966 yards for the Hurricanes after Mark Walton was lost for the season with injury.

At the wide receiver position, Ahmmon Richards will be returning for his junior year. Expectations are high as he spent the last season hampered by a nagging hamstring injury. However, after a promising freshman year, Richards looks to bounce back and help lead the Hurricanes to another bowl game.

On the defensive end of the field, Jaquan Johnson (Safety) and Shaquille Quarterman (Linebacker) will spearhead the defense. With even more experience, the sky's the limit for this Hurricanes defense.

Training camp should be very intriguing this year. With competition at every position, this will be one of the most competitive offseasons in recent years.

The players that are headlining the incoming recruiting class are:

Brevin Jordan (Tight end)

Las Vegas, NV

Bishop Gorman HS

Nesta Silvera (Defensive tackle)

Plantation, FL

American Heritage HS

Lorenzo Lingard (Running back)

Orange City, FL

University HS

Al Blades Jr. (Cornerback)

Fort Lauderdale, FL

Saint Thomas Aquinas HS

Jarren Williams (Quarterback)

Lawrenceville, GA

Central Gwinnett HS

One of the darkest moments in my family's life.

Huffington Post

I knew this day was coming when my mother’s decided to get spinal surgery. February 20, was the date her surgery was set. It was a normal day in school when I received the message of a lifetime. My oldest sibling telling me our mother’s surgery went wrong. Imagining what could possibly go wrong made my eyes water. Felt like I was the only person on my bus. Everything was silence and my mind was racing. There was never a positive thought in my head. Taking the last step off the bus and the first step onto the porch, everything was real.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.
