Picture a six-foot five inch tall, three-hundred pound twenty year old walking around a village in Ethiopia. Now picture ten more guys his size right there beside him in the 90 degree heat building wells for the people in these villages. That’s the Duke offensive line.
Starting Left Guard Dave Harding led a group of his fellow linemen to the Ethiopian countryside for eleven days in May and not only built wells, but also bonds that will last a lifetime.

“Faith, family, future.”

Then on July 4th, he got in a jet-ski accident with fellow wide receiver Jamison Crowder and suffered a serious brain injury.

Art Heyman left a lasting yet complicated legacy with the Duke Blue Devils.
By Lauren Brownlow– Duke’s starters in the secondary are as good a unit as the Blue Devils have had in quite some time. Junior Ross Cockrell and senior Lee Butler will man the cornerback spots, and both have plenty of talent and experience. “I think when you have Lee Butler and Ross Cockrell, it may be two of as good corners as I’ve been around in my career,” Duke head...
