Westfield QB Mike Glennon said that one of the reasons he picked N.C. State, and not his brother's school, Virginia Tech, was to "get out of the shadow". Can't blame him. It's the same reasoning that leads many players to opt out of going to their local school and choose...

Text Message Ban Under Review
