Hope Flying Dutchmen

What We're Reading

  • »How D-III colleges profit from football
  • Deadspin's take on how Division III football drives enrollment leaned heavily on analysis from D3football.com's Pat Coleman. Good take on D-III, actually.
  • »Hope QB eyes big season, med school
  • Michael Atwell said he came to Hope because he wanted to study chemistry and biology, while continuing to play football for a few more seasons.
  • »Orr overcomes to get NFL shot
  • In many ways, Clinton Orr had an even tougher childhood than the one in Blind Side. Orr overcame periods of homelessness. Violence. Drugs. Crime. Poverty. Hunger. And stays at a juvenile detention center.
