Lefty Driesell's legacy lives on in daughter Pam, son Chuck

Growing up the child of a famous college basketball coach, Pam Driesell lost out on anonymity. Even by a coach’s daughter’s standards. “I used to think if I was Dean Smith’s daughter and you called the roll and you say, ‘Pam Smith,’ nobody is automatically going to say ‘Any relation to Dean?’” she said. “But ‘Driesell’ was so ...”  Now as adults and parents themselves, Lefty’s middle two children have followed their father’s footsteps into a couple of fish bowls of their own. Earlier this month Pam Driesell was installed as senior pastor at Atlanta’s Trinity Presbyterian Church. The same weekend, Chuck Driesell began his first stint as a Division I basketball coach at The Citadel.

Bulldogs center Sellers is serious about snaps

Thousands of times this fall, Mike Sellers has bent over a football and hiked it between his legs into the waiting hands of a quarterback.  "Tons of times," The Citadel's freshman center said. "Before practice, after practice. Before games, on the sideline during games. Tons of times."  That's why it's so frustrating for all concerned when one of the most fundamental acts of the game, the snap to the quarterback, goes wrong, as it has often for the Bulldogs this season.
