OK, so maybe heroics is overstating it a tiny bit. But then again…maybe not.
As it turns out, the young girl whom coaches Dave Huxtable and Frisman Jackson stopped to help out of her overturned vehicle Tuesday (just after she had rolled it due to texting while driving apparently) was safely seat belted in and wasn’t seriously injured.
In any case, a big Wolfpack “Atta Boy” for both coach Huxtable and coach Frisman.

The one-car accident involved a teenage girl and occurred at Holly Springs Road in Raleigh, according to a school spokeswoman, and happened on a sharp turn following a storm. Jackson and defensive coordinator/linebackers coach Dave Huxtable, who live down the street from each other, were both driving home from work when they saw the accident. Jackson said Huxtable “pulled over abruptly” when he saw the overturned vehicle.
“We both jumped out of our car and ran over to aid the person,” Jackson said. “We were talking to her on the driver’s side. I went around to the passenger’s side and yanked the door open and me and Coach Huxtable both pulled her out.”

An additional “Atta Boy” goes out to Coach Jackson, who learned Wednesday that he and his wife are expecting their second child.
