What We're Reading

  • »SJU receiver seeing life as a coach
  • Come August, Josh Bungum will be back on the football field at St. John's, getting ready for his junior season. But for now, you can find the Johnnies wide receiver in area dugouts as the head coach of the American Legion baseball program in his hometown of Paynesville, Minn.
  • »Johnnie, Tommie help Seahawks soar
  • When they're not busy evaluating talent , it's not uncommon for Seattle Seahawks director of pro personnel Trent Kirchner to share some good-natured ribbing with his boss -- general manager John Schneider.
  • »Learning to love the purple powers
  • Some bemoan the fact that Mount Union and Whitewater always end up on opposite sides of the playoff bracket. To which I say, that?s the way it should be.
