As of this writing, Mike Fox's Diamond Heels are an incredible 30-2 and ranked as the nation's top team in multiple polls. As Fox has elevated the program to the national elite, much of its success has been built on the foundation of stellar starting pitching. That's true again this year, as Kent Emanuel is Carolina's Friday night anchor. In this month's issue, Turner Walston profiles Emanuel's rise from recruit to ace.
Our May issue also contains plenty of spring football coverage, including Romar Morris's attempt to transition from track speedster to football tailback, a reshuffling of the Tar Heel coaching staff that could have familiar--and hopefully positive--results, and much more.
We think you'll also enjoy a collection of quotes on Dean Smith from those who knew him best, plus the former-player perspective of Mike Ingersoll on football (this month, Mike writes on the benefits of spring practice) and Jawad Williams on basketball (who says farewell to the 2012-13 Tar Heels).
