The Cowboys’ All-Pro center told a Dallas radio station that he has become an avid Dungeons and Dragons player online. The fantasy role-playing game, which started as a board game in the 1970s, has evolved into a massive online game. Frederick’s interest in D&D helped him fill a void while he was dealing with Guillain-Barre syndrome last year and missed the season. “It’s been really good,” he said. “It allowed me to escape the world I was living in and live in this other world for hours at a time.” Frederick says, “It’s very different from what I do on a normal basis. It’s a way that I escape.”
The former Arkansas football head coach apologized to fans seven years after he was fired for misleading officials about his extramarital affair with an athletic department employee. Petrino returned to Arkansas, where he coached for four seasons, for the first time since 2012. At a Little Rock Touchdown Club luncheon, Petrino said, “I wanted to be able to come here and apologize to everybody, the fans, the players, and truly tell you how sorry I am for the way it ended.” Petrino, fired in November as Louisville’s head coach, left open the possibility of coaching again.
