‘SPECTACULAR’: As Okafor sits, Duke rides 7-man rout of Clemson

A tough game following an emotional win got tougher for No. 4 Duke before it even started on Saturday. All-American center Jahlil Okafor spent Saturday on the bench in street clothes with a boot protecting his injured foot. Instead of faltering, the Blue Devils produced a win that greatly pleased their Hall of Fame coach.

FATHER & SON: Hall of Famer Seau’s son wishes dad was alive to enjoy it

Blessed with bloodlines that delivered athleticism, Jake Seau stepped on to a lacrosse field on a whim one day as a middle school student.

What had once been an afterthought would develop into a sanctuary during the most trying days of his young life and, today, his chosen athletic identity.

His father, recently elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, ferociously played linebacker for three NFL teams. Jake Seau had the skills to follow Junior Seau into the sport and excel.

“He had incredible instinct on football field,” said Shane Walton, who coached Jake Seau at The Bishop’s School in San Diego. “He was an absolute stud at football.”

That love for the sport began to wane, though.
