Running Back U?

Not exactly but a little known prep school in our backyard is known for the quality and number of running backs it has produced.

Niagara versus Michigan

If there is to be a Cinderella in a hockey tournament, it would be Niagara.  Of the 16 teams playing in the NCAA tournament this year, Niagara is seeded 15th.  They are up against the number one team in their region, a team that had only five losses all season and 32 victories.  Pretty daunting!… Continue reading Niagara versus Michigan
