Quarterback T.J. Yates of North Carolina has been medically cleared to return to limited practice, but Coach Butch Davis said yesterday that Cameron Sexton will remain the starter for the foreseeable future. Yates participated in some individual drills on Tuesday and passed to receivers after trainers determined that his broken left ankle had healed adequately. Yates also participated in seven-on-seven drills in which the quarterback isn't rushed or tackled.

Joey Lefforge is just 17. George Stavnitski is 74. And yet the two of them share a common view of the world. It's upside down — seen while stooped over and looking back through their own legs. Lefforge is the center of Oakwood High School's football team that meets Jonathan Alder in the first round of the Division IV state playoffs Friday night, Oct. 31, in Plain City. Stavnitski is the former center and co-captain of the University of North Carolina football team — a guy who knocked helmets with the likes of Duke's Sonny Jurgensen and Notre Dame's Paul Hornung — and now is a volunteer coach for the Lumberjacks.

The Tar Heels are the first unanimous preseason No. 1 pick since USA TODAY took over the poll in 1991. They also are the first team in that span to open No. 1 two years a row.
