Arizona Cardinals' Andre Roberts catching on as season winds down

There was a time this season when Cardinals players wouldn't trust handing so much as even a sandwich to rookie wide receiver Andre Roberts.  He'd drop it.  Roberts musters a smile as he looks back on those days, starting in training camp when passes and punt returns slipped through his fingers far too frequently.  It became such a concern as the season unfolded, however, that coaches had to go back and look at his college tapes from The Citadel, where he scored 41 career touchdowns, to see if they had missed something.

Cardinals rookie Andre Roberts overcomes slow start with big game

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Andre Roberts admits he was lost in training camp, overwhelmed by the transition from football at The Citadel to the complex, competitive world of the NFL.  With a military background to keep him disciplined, Roberts kept working — catching passes after practice day after day, running routes, working on his punt returns. Suddenly, it all seems to have clicked for the speedy, soft-spoken wide receiver.

Convention leader rests in Orangeburg cemetery

Slightly tilted, its lettering weathered almost to the point where the inscription is unreadable, the modest gravestone marks the grave of one of the state's most distinguished citizens - whose name is almost unrecognized today.  Gen. David Flavel Jamison, president of the Secession Convention and founder of The Citadel, is one of several Civil War-era individuals buried in the old cemetery behind the Orangeburg County Courthouse off Doyle Street. It is known as the Old Presbyterian Cemetery.

150years later, S. Carolina celebration sparks new civil war

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Starting Monday, South Carolina will commemorate the 150th anniversary of the start of the Civil War with a series of events that underscore the state's central role in that titanic, tragic struggle.  It will be a delicate task.  Two of the first events scheduled to mark the anniversary — a privately sponsored secession ball Monday in Charleston and an effort to display the original Ordinance of Secession — show just how divisive the Civil War remains.

Charleston at War: A simple Ordinance of Secession

It had all come down to this moment.  Robert Barnwell Rhett sat in the grand meeting room at St. Andrew's Hall, waiting for his name to be called. It was just after 1 p.m. on Dec. 20, 1860, and -- decades after he had first suggested the idea -- South Carolina was seceding from the United States of America.

Summerall's memoir reflects nation's history

As a young West Point graduate, Gen. Charles Pelot Summerall (1867-1955) fought in heated actions against rebel insurgents in the Philippines and during the Boxer Rebellion in China. As commander of the Army's 5th Corps, he was a battlefront general leading major successful offensives against the Germans in World War I. As a retired four-star general and president of The Citadel, he looked the S.C. General Assembly squarely in the eye and cowed it into overcoming its resistance to providing critical support for the school.

Citadel cadets to re-enact 1861 events

With the 150th anniversary of the Civil War approaching, cadets from The Citadel plan to re-enact the firing of what many consider the first hostile shots of the conflict.  In January 1861, just weeks after South Carolina seceded from the Union, Citadel cadets on Morris Island fired on the federal steamship Star of the West.  The ship was trying to resupply Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor, but the firing forced the ship to turn back, and the war began the following April with the Confederate bombardment of the Union fort.  About 20 faculty and cadet re-enactors from the state military college will re-enact the firing on the ship on Jan. 8.

SPOTLIGHT: TV crew comes to Mattoon for hero story

MATTOON, Ill. — The story of Arland Williams brought a Japanese television crew to town this past week for filming a documentary piece about heroes across the world.  Williams, a Mattoon native, died on Jan. 13, 1982, along with 77 others after an Air Florida Flight jetliner crashed after takeoff and sank in the Potomac River in Washington, D.C. "His training at The Citadel instilled in him many core values," Collinsworth said. "And those values are emphasized in essays written each year by Williams school students. You never know until you're faced with something like Arland was just what you'll actually do. But we all admired him long before that happened."

Army-Navy game holds special place

The ol' coach has had some important games go the wrong way this season.  Attending The Citadel's homecoming game was special, but sadly the Bulldogs lost. It hurt my feelings when Clemson's Tigers lost to South Carolina's "Chickins" -- excuse me, Gamecocks -- in the Battle for the Palmetto State. There was more disappointment for this ol' coach when Beaufort High lost in the playoffs to Easley, and again when the Gamecocks lost the SEC championship to Auburn.

Cooperation benefits colleges (editorial)

As South Carolina's budget continues to shrink dramatically, state colleges are looking for ways to manage.  And since the Budget and Control Board put a cap on tuition increases, and lawmakers are considering capping the percentage of out-of-state students to be enrolled, the options are more difficult to find.  A recent $16 million federal grant to some of the state's public colleges and universities might offer more than a financial shot in the arm. It might offer a useful philosophy.

"It was uplifting and fun and I felt so fortunate to have had that experience. I am still in touch with about 10 of my students from that first class."
