NCSU Football Asst’s Heroics

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.

Congrats Coach!

    Just a great lesson to tell anyone about the dangers of texting and driving.

    Casual observance from one who used to do a lot of “work sampling” studies and also “watches” the dynamics of human movement….spent a LOT of time sitting in airports…

    I have come to the conclusion that part of the Triangle’s traffic mess IS cell phones. People using stop lights to “catch up” on email, texts, phone calls, play games, etc.

    If you watch the progression of folks pulling away from a stop light, I have seen FASTER responses in the Independent Care living center where my mom resided by the little old folks in their “electric” chairs.

    Their reflexes were faster….but they did not have their electronic toy embedded in their paws..

    Phones have added at least 25% to the commute time around here….as well as other places….
