A pair of Cavaliers, Joe Reed and Bryce Hall, were both selected in the NFL Draft on Sunday, with Reed going to the Chargers in the fifth round and Hall to the Jets. The Daily Progress’ Bennett Conlin caught up with Reed after hearing his name called. “I’ve never been that far out west. I think the furthest I’ve been that way is like Louisiana or something, but I’m definitely excited. I’ve been telling my friends and my girlfriend that I was trying to go to L.A., and I’m going to L.A.” Click here to read more.

As we posted in Friday’s blog, former @UVAMensTennis standout JC Aragone was teaming up with celebrity chef Anne Burrell to do a social distancing live cooking show as a way to raise money for City Harvest. We hope that you took our advice to watch the stream because it was a very entertaining, interactive and informative undertaking. We are pretty sure Aragone will be sticking with his day job, though.
