The benefit of the doubt

(04/30/18 6:32am)

If there’s a reason I’ve contributed as much as I have to The Chronicle in four years, it’s because of a desire for truth. I think we reporters serve a real purpose in bringing topics to light that deserve the light—I have proudly seen my friends write about sexual harassment, Tallman Trask and even Pitchforks at its prime hour, 2 a.m. on a Sunday.

Imani Dorsey's goal lifts Duke women's soccer to NCAA first-round victory

(11/12/17 7:32am)

In the two weeks since Duke had last played at Koskinen Stadium—against Boston College in the ACC quarterfinals—it became a completely different season. The trees that had been green surrounding the stadium had changed into their amber colors, and the warm temperatures had dropped into the 30s.





Pinning opponents inside the 20-yard line? It's harder than it looks

(10/12/17 4:43am)

The Chronicle's Jack Dolgin examined a part of football many punters, including Duke's Austin Parker, struggle with—pinning teams inside their own 20 yard-line. Parker has on average pinned opponents to their 18-yard line when punting from the 50 yard-line or closer to the opponent's goal line. In contrast, punters playing against the Blue Devils during his career have on average pinned Duke to the 15-yard line. The question was whether not being able to kick the ball far would actually be an advantage, so Dolgin wondered whether he, a former high school soccer player, could pin opponents even better than some NCAA punters in short-distance punting situations.
