Jerseys in the Rafters 2 DVD

Even though their jerseys aren't yet officially hanging in the rafters, Tyler Hansbrough, Wayne Ellington and Ty Lawson are featured in the newly updated DVD, "Jerseys in the Rafters 2."

Those three, along with other recent honorees Raymond Felton, Sean May, Rashad McCants and Donald Williams join Ford, Jordan, Carter and the rest of UNC's all-time greats in this new edition that just went on sale last week.

"To have your jersey retired anywhere is special, but to have it done at the University of North Carolina, that's almost like going to heaven!" - Antawn Jamison in Jerseys in the Rafters 2.
The DVD includes segments on every UNC player whose jersey hangs in the rafters - from 1926 National Player of the Year Jack Cobb to the most recent class, which includes 2008 National Player of the Year Tyler Hansbrough. There are also behind the scenes tales from the players themselves, their teammates and coaches, including Dean Smith, who coached the majority of the players "in the rafters" and Roy Williams, who has coached six players who have qualified for UNC's legendary rafters in the last five years.

"Jerseys in the Rafters 2" also includes about an hour of newly updated bonus material, including:

  • From the Locker Room – go "inside" to hear behind the scenes tales from players & coaches (don't miss Brad Daugherty telling about his "rasslin" match with Michael Jordan)
  • Dean Smith: Coach, Mentor, Friend – a moving players' tribute to their legendary coach
  • Living the Dream – players reveal what it means to wear the UNC uniform and be in the rafters
