My Son Brandon’s Ring Dance Photo Shoot at The Founders Inn & Spa!

Here are a few of my favs of my son Brandon and date Amelia’s photo session at the Founders Inn & Spa before ring dance.  If you remember, he did his proposal with the doughnuts a few weeks ago and she said yes!  We gave Brandon the keys to the beamer to pick up his beautiful date.  Just can’t believe my son is a young man.  Mad props to Miguel’s at Maya Couture for making Brandon and the Kellam High school boys looking good!

Sports Wrap by Coastal Virginia Sports Editor Keith Cephus | Hampton Pirates, SC State Advance to MEAC Semifinals

The Hampton Pirates beat Morgan State 91-71 at the MEAC tournament to advance to the semifinals.   Reginald Johnson and Deron Powers led the Pirates with 18 pts each, knocking off the 11th seed Morgan State.  South Carolina St edged NC A&T 63-54 in one of the most exciting games of the day. SC State led 37-21 at the half but NC A&T rallied back to tie it late in the second half.  SC State freshman guard Edward Stevens hit a desperation 3 pt field goal with the shot clock at 1 to put the SC State ahead for good.   NC A&T forward Bruce Beckford finished with a 17 pts and 8 rebounds.
