He learned to be precise. He learned to prepare more diligently than everybody else. And he learned to work with a team toward a common goal. All the things Wesleyan grad Chad Hall is engaged in this summer at Philadelphia Eagles training camp he already experienced over the last two years -- and quite far from the football field.
The New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons were in their final segment of Tuesday morning's combined practice when Thomas Dimitroff took a step back. Make that a few steps back.

Gwinnett cities like Duluth now turn to alcohol sales so folks can roam the town square and drink. I could not believe a woman on TV described those future boozers as “responsible adults.” “Responsible drinking” is an oxymoron. True responsible people don’t drink in public and around small children. Who’s going to ensure that these boozers don’t drink and drive?

It wasn’t he who allowed all those spectators to stand in the bunker with Dustin Johnson — if, indeed, it was a bunker, and I say that it isn’t.
A neighbor told police that two men were looking for a male victim just hours before he was robbed at gunpoint in front of a Lilburn relative's home.
