Two other football players began careers in the little-known Gridiron Developmental Football League. Apex 2009 graduate Matthew Beauchamp, an offensive lineman, and 2008 Cardinal Gibbons graduate Matthew Shaefer, a kicker, are playing for the North Carolina Bisons out of Durham.
Shaefer, who did not play as a walk-on at N.C. State, is averaging 51.3 yards per punt, is 1-of-3 from field goal range and 17-of-19 in extra points for the 5-1 Bisons.
Burt is with the Burlington Royals of the Rookie League. Through nine games, he hit .115, with three hits and one homer in 26 at-bats. Povse has pitched one inning for the Danville (Va.) Braves, striking out one with no hits or walks and just one hit batsman allowed.
Holly Springs native C.J. Leslie is continuing to try to break through in the NBA.
Leslie was recently cut from the Indiana Pacers’ summer league roster. Leslie spent last year in the NBDL on three different teams, averaging 12.1 points, 5.8 rebounds and 2.0 turnovers a game. Athens Drive grad Josh Davis is with the Charlotte Hornets’ summer league team.
Cary native Logan Halladay was in Philadelphia in June for the NHL Draft, but did not hear his name called. Halladay was ranked as the No. 16 goalie entering the draft, but only nine were taken. Halladay, 17, had a 93.2 percent save percentage this past year for the Janesville (Wis.) Jets, a minor league team.
