Junior athlete favors Tar Heels, Hokies and Tigers

North Carolina has joined the early rush for Tabor City South Columbus High RB Brian Riggins, extending the junior an official offer.

“I was so happy because I’ve always been a fan of
North Carolina,” Riggins told

Riggins also has offers from Virginia Tech and
East Carolina, while Clemson, Duke, N.C. State, Florida State, Georgia and Boston College are recruiting him as well.

He said his favorites are the Hokies, Tar Heels and Tigers, with Virginia Tech holding a slight lead.

Don’t sell
North Carolina short on this one, though. The 6-1, 185-pound Riggins, who could play running back, wide receiver or safety in college, grew up a Tar Heels fan. He has a cousin, Greg Elleby, on the team and has visited the school several times.

He and his mother went to the Tar Heels’ opener with The Citadel, and Riggins plans to attend Saturday’s game with
East Carolina.

I think people just care about where they can get their paper up.

We don't know if you believe in the real existence of negative or "lower" forces. If you do, then you may be able to understand or relate to some of what we are about to say. It seems that how your "programming" permits you to see or identify those forces, determines the limit of your acceptance or understanding. Many believe that there are "evil" acts or even "evil" individuals, but would draw the line before they would believe in evil spirits, evil discarnates, negative influences, malevolent space aliens, "Luciferians," or Satan and his fallen angels.
