Former Carolina Panthers running back Dadrian "Dee" Brown is the new head football coach at Victory Christian.
Brown played at Syracuse and played two years for Carolina in 2001 and 2002. He played in 14 games in the 2002 season, rushing 102 times for 360 yards and four touchdowns. He played with Pittsburgh in 2003, Cleveland in 2004 and finished his career with Kansas City in 2005 and '06.
In 2010, Brown worked as a running backs coach at the NFL Summer Minority Internship Program with the Denver Broncos.
"Dee has a strong desire to help make a difference in the lives of young people," said Broncos running backs coach Eric Studesville. "He has a passion for the game and what is has done for him."
Victory Christian athletics director Michael Pratt said Brown, who replaces six-year coach Frank Crockett, is the right guy to turn around the Kings program, which has struggled of late.
"Coach Brown brings solid experience and a strong knowledge of the game," he said.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – Cherryville's Terry Whisnant scored all season at a prolific pace and made shooting the 3-pointer look easy.
As a result, the senior guard has been named The Associated Press men's prep basketball player of the year for North Carolina.
The Florida State recruit earned 10 of 13 votes from sports writers across the state in results released Friday. Forsyth Country Day junior Tyler Lewis, who has committed to North Carolina State, was second with two votes after averaging about 27 points and seven assists.
Whisnant averaged 31.7 points, 7.9 rebounds and 5.2 assists to return to the AP All-State team for the second straight year. He averaged almost 28 points as a junior and finished his career as the school's all-time leading scorer, retaking a record that his father once held for 23 years before it was first broken in 2008.
“When I first came, people talked to me about it, but I didn't think it was possible,” Whisnant said. “But as the years came, I just stayed in the gym and figured I had a shot at it. I just kept working and it happened.”
Whisnant had a memorable season by any measure. He set a school-record with 124 3-pointers, the fourth-most in state history. His 950 points were the No. 2 single-season total in state history for a senior. He set a state record by scoring at least 20 points in 29 games and tying another mark by scoring at least 40 in three straight games.
His 2,561 career points rank seventh in state history.
“He put up that many points and there were times as a coaching staff, we'd sit over there and say, Shoot the ball, son,' because he'd always look to get teammates involved,” Cherryville coach Scott Harrill said. “As soon as double teams came after him, he was looking for the open man. It wasn't just about him. He could've taken more shots than what he did. It's been a pleasure to coach him.”
Whisnant did all that at a Class 1-A school while turning away inquiries to go to private schools known for showcasing star prospects. He wasn't tempted to leave, he said, because Cherryville was home.
“This is where my dad grew from and where my family is from,” he said. “I wanted to break (the school scoring record) and keep it a family-oriented town.”

Ed Addie, 44, is the new boys basketball coach at Kennedy Charter School in south Charlotte.
Addie is president of the 10-year-old Queen City Athletic Association, a youth and AAU basketball program, where he’s coached 22 Division I college basketball players including five high school academic All-Americans. His teams won four AAU state championships and made seven straight trips to the N.C. state AAU final four.
At Kennedy Charter, Addie returns five of 14 players. Nine seniors graduated.
“I hope to build a great basketball program, that’s well respected and well recognized in the community with kids who are focused on academics while excelling on the basketball court,” said Addie, whose son Adrian from Hopewell in 2010, where he was a starter for the boys basketball team and carried a 4.0 GPA.
Ed Addie played football at Tennessee State but transferred to Daytona State and played basketball for three years before graduating in 1988 with a degree in marketing. He was on the Dean’s list and President’s List.
CLOVER -- Clover High School ventured just across the state border to hire one of Gaston County’s winningest football coaches.
John Devine has been the head football coach at South Point High in Belmont, N.C., for 15 seasons where he guided the Red Raiders to a 137-55-1 career record. At South Point, Devine won two state titles (2003 and 2009) and 10 conference championships. The 2010 Red Raiders finished 9-4 and won the Big South 3A Conference title. Devine was named the league’s coach of the year.
Clover High School principal Mark Hopkins has known Devine for close to 15 years.
"I have seen his South Point teams up close on many occasions," Hopkins said in a press release issued by Clover High School. "His teams have always represented their community with class and played the game the way it is intended to be played. We believe he is a great fit for our community and that his past experiences and success will follow him to Clover. We welcome Coach Devine into the Blue Eagle family with open arms."
"I am very blessed and honored to have been considered, and I’m very excited for the opportunity to coach Clover High School,” Devine said in Clover press release. "Clover and the upstate of South Carolina have great football tradition and great coaching. I know we’ll have a challenge each and every Friday night. I am looking forward to that challenge."
Clover athletics director Carroll Hester added, “…We are very excited and feel most fortunate to announce that John Devine will be the new Blue Eagle football coach. Coach Devine’s record, the success he has achieved, and the program he has built at South Point High School is tremendous. We look forward to Coach Devine’s leadership, his passion, and his desire to help Clover remain at the top.”
Devine will replace Jet Turner who announced on Feb. 28 that he will leave at the end of the school year to become the head football coach at Wilson Hall in Sumter, his hometown.
Turner served eight years at Clover and led the Blue Eagles to the Class AAAA Division II South Carolina State Championship in 2007. He leaves with a career record of 70-29.

Marshall Plumlee, a 7-foot center from Arden Christ School, is the 2010-11 Gatorade N.C. Boys Basketball Player of the Year. Plumlee is the first Gatorade North Carolina Boys Basketball Player of the Year to be chosen from Christ School.
Butler's Cierra Burdick repeated as N.C. girls player of the year.
The award, which recognizes not only outstanding athletic excellence, but also high standards of academic achievement and exemplary character demonstrated on and off the court, distinguishes Plumlee as North Carolina’s best high school boys basketball player. Now a finalist for the prestigious Gatorade National Boys Basketball Player of the Year award to be announced in March, Plumlee joins an elite alumni association of past state boys basketball award winners, including Dwight Howard (2003-04, SW Atlanta Christian Academy, Ga.), Chauncey Billups (1993-94 & 1994-95, George Washington HS, Colo.), Jason Kidd (1991-92, St. Joseph Notre Dame HS, Calif.), Paul Pierce (1994-95, Inglewood HS, Calif.) and Chris Bosh (2001-02, Lincoln HS, Texas).
The 7-foot, 220-pound senior center led the Greenies to a 32-5 record and a fourth consecutive North Carolina Independent Schools Athletic Association Class 3A state championship this past season. Plumlee recorded 13 points, 10 rebounds, two assists and one block in the 59-57 state title-clinching victory against Charlotte Christian School. A McDonald’s High School All-American Game selection, he averaged 11.5 points, 10.3 rebounds, 2.5 blocks and 1.5 assists per game in 2010-11. Plumlee shot 56.7 percent from the field and 77.1 percent from the free-throw line. Also a two-time NCISAA All-State selection, he produced 8.0 points, 8.5 rebounds and three blocks per contest as a junior.
Plumlee has maintained a 4.06 weighted GPA in the classroom and represents one of the state’s top academic candidates in meeting the Gatorade Award’s broad criteria. In addition to serving as a dormitory prefect and chair of his school’s Honor council, he has volunteered in association with the National Honor Society.
“He plays with great intensity on both ends of the floor,” said Paul Biancardi, National Director for ESPN Basketball Recruiting. “He’s an inside presence offensively with a nice jump hook and drop-step move. Defensively, he’s a rim protector; he can block shots or make it difficult for opponents to score over him. He’s a consistent rebounder at both ends. He cares so much about his team, and that’s one of the most important qualities an athlete can have. Along with being an exceptional player and a high-level student, he’s an excellent teammate.”
Plumlee has signed a National Letter of Intent to play basketball on scholarship at Duke University this fall.

She is an extremely hard worker and is very competitive in the classroom and on the court. She deserves everything that comes her way because she has worked so hard to get to where she is today. She is not only a great player but she is an even better leader, and the way she leads is what makes her so special.”
