Thanks to your support, we’ve been able to have Al Featherston and Jim Sumner contribute to DBR for the last several years. It’s something that’s not covered under our normal budget, so we’ve done a fundraiser each fall to pay them for their tremendous contributions. We’re ready to kick that off again, but a bit early and with something new.

Given the masterful overhaul of the football program by David Cutcliffe, Jim suggested that DBR might add football game coverage. It’s a great idea and overdue. Duke had a remarkable season last year in many ways, not least of all because of how young the team was. The future is very bright.
That’s very much the case for basketball, where Duke has a deep, athletic team that is a serious threat for the national championship.
In order to do that, we’re starting our fundraiser early and we hope to raise enough to cover that.
With the sterling efforts of Al, Jim and Barry Jacobs, DBR has three writers with press passes and access to everyone who matters. Having the three of them improves our coverage exponentially.
As we’ve done so far, we’re posting links to PayPal. We also have a PO Box for those of you who would prefer to contribute by check. If this is your preference, please split your contribution into two checks, with one made out to Al and one to Jim. We’ll forward them accordingly.
Also, if you’d prefer to use a card, we now have a Square account and can make arrangements to do it that way as well. Just drop us a line and we’ll go from there.
As always, we are deeply grateful for the support and the passion. You guys are great!
