Congrats! Tyronda Whitaker and Tyquan Lewis I am so proud of Tyquan but more proud of Tyronda because you were there along with taking your other children. I love your dedication. You sacrificed and put the time in. I go to local high school games and volunteer my time videoing and taking photos of other folk children when the do not even come out and support their own. Every time I seen mom posting she was heading out to support her son I was happy. A real parent support their children. Tyronda I say thank you! Again congrats to the both of you!

Tarboro High grad Takoby Cofield had his second chance to impress NFL scouts Friday at the annaul NFL Combine in Indianapolis.
The former Duke offensive lineman was one of more than 50 offensive linemen to be invited to work out in front of hundreds of NFL scouts, coaches and executives. Although not regarded as a high draft pick, Cofield stood out in several drills.
Cofield ran the 40-yard dash in 5.19 seconds – the 13th fastest time among offensive lineman – and his 30-inch vertical jump, 14th best among his peer group. He finished in the middle of the pack in several other workouts including 23 repetitions of bench pressing 225 pounds and a broad jump of 101 inches. (Source: Read more)
