Warren Morris delivers the greatest walk off in college history

By: Devon Teeple

There's never really anything better than watching that one play that turns a game around, turns the momentum, and is absolutely epic in the moment.

College athletics has a different feel to it. I admit, watching the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians was what we all wanted. They turned in a Game 7 for the ages, but something gets lost in all the excitement. When all is said and done, the end of the playoffs means contract negotiating and labour strife. The players saying that it's all about the game and hometown discounts are making decisions based purely on the dollar bill.

Mariners and Marlins make headlines inking Indy all-stars

By: Devon Teeple

Despite playing in only 85 games, Somerset Patriots' David Vidal was one of the best players in the Atlantic League. He was so good that the Miami Marlins signed him to a minor league contract.

Vidal is no stranger to the pro game. He was originally drafted by the Cincinnati Reds in the 8th round of the 2010 MLB June Amateur Draft and played within their organization for four years making it to Double A. His best year came in 2011 when he hit 20 home runs and drove in 85. The .280 batting average and .847 OPS were career highs until his breakout 2016 campaign.

From the brink and back: Indiana Hoosier Todd Jadlow finds his way

By: Devon Teeple

You'd think that being a champion at anything would be all that you could ask for. Unfortunately, that's not always the case. 

Todd Jadlow played over 10 years of professional basketball and is widely known for being a part of the 1986-1987 Indiana Hoosiers basketball team that won the NCAA Championship under legendary coach Bobby Knight. He's experienced many highs and lows in his life. From the glory years at Indiana to battling drug and alcohol addiction, he's literally seen the worst that can happen if you let things get out of control.

He recently released a book called Jadlow: On The Rebound, It's a cautionary tale of what lies ahead if you make the wrong decisions. Not only can you hurt yourself, but you can hurt the ones you love the most.

Jadlow opened up to The GM's Perspective about his road from stardom to a point in his life where he only had one final choice to make.

Face to Face going strong after 25 years

By: Devon Teeple

After 25 years and 10 albums, Face to Face is going as strong as ever. They are currently on tour promoting their latest album "Protection" and I'm thrilled to say I will be seeing them live for the first time in Toronto this week.

I first heard about Face to Face during my freshman year at York College in 1997. Some of my teammates from California introduced me to a song called Disconnected and I have been hooked ever since. Unless you were really involved in the punk scene/community, you only had the radio. Before the Internet, our options were limited and we were curbed to the many different styles of music out there at the time. Back in the olden days, the Internet and social media really weren't even words used to describe anything. To enjoy any music on the West Coast, especially in a genre that most wouldn't consider mainstream, it was almost impossible. Bands like Face to Face, Pulley, Strung Out, and NOFX were owing the So-Cal punk rock scene and I was nowhere nearby to enjoy it.
