Seton Hall needs to work on their security

Safety should be a top priority, if not the highest priority for a college campus. With thousands of students in the area every day, the potential for disaster without the correct security is heightened. If we are unaware of who a certain person is coming through the gates at Seton Hall, we do not know the dangers they could bring with them. Kiera Alexander/Asst. Photography Editor Seton Hall emphasizes their security. Just not in the...

Combine performances are overvalued in evaluations

The NFL combine is the most overrated, nitpicked and overemphasized event in all of sports. The idea of scouting a player’s skill set heavily dependent on 40-yard-dashes and shuttle runs is bewildering. Game film speaks for itself on how a player performs, not how many inches their vertical jump is. Year after year, teams fall in love with the “workout warriors” and the players who are the epitome of an elite athlete at the combine....

A promise to her coach made Reganne Camp softball’s ace

Reganne Camp means business whenever she is on the mound. The jet black sunglasses mean more than a stern facial expression from the ace of the softball staff. She brings the impression of being “The Terminator” to any hitter that enters the batter’s box but not because of her frequently thrown change-up. It is because she made the promise that she will be back. “I can tell you Reganne’s game face, behind those darkened sunglasses,...

Although it is not until April that the likes of John Cena, Undertaker, and Triple H make their stroll into the squared circle upon the booming chorus of speakers serenading the crowd with their iconic...

‘Plan B’ has turned out well for player-turned-coach Flagg

Marissa Flagg never thought she would stop shooting a basketball, nor did she think that she would one day be on a coaching staff for a Division I basketball team.  As a point guard from Iona College, and then a professional overseas, Flagg believed basketball would never end, and she did not think that she would one day pick up the clipboard. Yet, at the end of her tenure in Puerto Rico, Flagg had to become more realistic with...
