Pierson Athletes Find Next Level Success on the Diamond

Posted on 12 November 2014

Colman Vila was one of the most dominant pitchers in New York State during his senior season at Pierson High School in 2013, the year he led the Whalers to the Class C Final Four while posting a 0.00 ERA, a state record that can never be broken.

Vila enrolled at the University of Delaware last fall and suddenly was no longer a big fish in a small pond. He worked out with the team during a red-shirt freshman year, but did not make the roster, which means he still had four years of eligibility remaining. After this fall’s practice season, however, all signs point to Vila making the varsity roster as a lefty out of the bullpen.

Radcliffe, Temple, and Hill Toot Their “Horns”

Posted on 30 October 2014

Horns, Alexandre Aja’s gender-bending adaptation of Joe Hill’s cult novel, opens theatrically Friday in New York City and elsewhere. You can also see it on VOD. Just as Ben Affleck’s character is wrongly accused of murdering his cold-hearted wife in Gone Girl, a young man, Ig Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe gives still another excellent post-Harry Potter performance), is blamed for the rape and murder of his virtuous long-time girlfriend, Merrin (an appealing Juno Temple). Unlike Affleck’s ineffectual character, Ig grows a pair of horns that have the power of making everyone he comes into contact with reveal their most despicable thoughts and desires.
