If you're looking for Ronde Barber or Tech's Torrian Gray, your best bet is to check the Scoreboard company's 1997 draft pick cards, that can be bought anywhere from a card shop to a K-Mart.
But if you're after Cornell Brown you'll have to wait awhile. ((SHELTON:)) tc-80617 IN - "IF THEY PLAY... RUNS 12 OC...YOU SEE."
Shelton is a diehard Tech fan, but he doesn't have a problem selling all these UVA cards from his shop in Daleville.)) ((SHELTON:)) TC-80548 IN- "oH i LIKE... RUNS 05 OC - ...KEEP THEM ALL.

Sheriff Doug Marrs is using a "dummy" deputy to get people to slow down.
This was the mannequin's first day on the job.
He spent the afternoon running radar just outside Christiansburg.
Marrs says speeding is the biggest complaint he hears but says his staff can only do so much.

The "dummy" cost about 300-dollars.
Marrs read about the concept in a magazine-- and says it appears to be working in other states. (----------------)
