REAL MEN ROCK

They may not be any good, but their hearts are in the right place. UNC's football players have been active in the community recently, helping build houses for Habitat For Humanity of Orange County and participating in the North Carolina Children's Hospitals "Real Men Rock" campaign.

Kennedy Tinsley (pictured right), Connor Barth, Michael Murphy, Bryon Bishop, Trimane Goddard and E.J. Wilson participated in the campaign to prevent Shaken Baby Syndrome called "Real Men Rock" on Friday, April 20. The campaign, which was organized by local Orange County agencies and UNC Hospitals' Beacon Child and Family program, was designed to teach men how to care for crying babies. According to the National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome, "an estimated 1,200 - 1,400 children are shaken for whom treatment is sought."

On Saturday, April 21, several players helped build three houses for Habitat for Humanity in Hillsborough. The team was divided into two groups with the defense working on the construction site from 8:30 a.m. to Noon and the offense finishing up from Noon to 4 p.m. Players helped sheath and shingle the roof, raised trusses and attached siding.
And, do you know what all the other ACC football players from all the other schools were doing? Practicing football, maybe?
