Yahoo Provides National Football Attention

On Thursday afternoon used a great picture of a celebration of NC State fans and former tight end, TJ Williams. (What is it with Wolfpackers from Tarboro today?)

It’s great to see the Pack showing up in links like these. Below is an edited screen-grab of Yahoo.

    That is my wife and I in the middle of that picture. My wife is the one touching TJ and I am right behind her. We have that picture, which was a two page spread in the Pack Pride magazine, framed in our State room. All I want now is this image as a jpeg. Can anyone get that to me?

    […] It is certainly a LONG WAY from the N&O’s coverage on the Friday before college football LAST YEAR.

I think that you will enjoy those flashbacks. […]
