Black History Month

The Canadian Football League had this feature on Vancouver-native Terrell Jana. As it says in the lede “As we make our way through Black History Month, this story about Vancouver, BC’s Terrell Jana deserves to be re-shared. A receiver at the University of Virginia, Jana was moved after he took a tour of the Memorial of Enslaved Laborers. For his senior year of football, Jana removed the nameplate on the back of his jersey as a tribute to slaves that either weren’t documented with last names or not given names upon their arrival in the U.S. “ Read the full story here.


UVA Today caught up with former two-sport Hoo Matt Blundin. Check out the full feature here.

Moving On

Best of luck to former @UVAFootball quarterback Kurt Benkert who is moving on from the Atlanta Falcons after three years with the team. He had a very classy good-bye after his waiving was announced yesterday.
