Braves football team gets temporary digs after hurricane

Flooded practice field

A trailer picks up equipment from a flooded practice field for the UNCP football team.

Damage and flooding caused by Hurricane Matthew left the UNCP football without a practice or game field for a week. It took days for the flood waters to be absorbed or to evaporate, but by that time players were staying in an out-of-county hotel and living off of fast food. Undaunted, staff in the program found workarounds, even though they themselves had trouble getting to work. It may be cliche say it took a team effort, but Coach Richardson praised that initiative and was grateful for assistance.
