Thursday’s regional sports roundup: JMU football program lands transfers from U.Va., Pitt; Hampton Roads Sports Media Hall of Fame induction set for May 12



Juwan Moye is the latest former Virginia player to head to James Madison to continue his career.

A spokesperson at JMU confirmed that Moye is enrolled at the school and started classes this week, according to multiple reports. Moye was one of two sophomore defensive linemen who left the Cavaliers’ football program late last season after having their scholarships removed by coach Bronco Mendenhall.
Moye played in U.Va.’s first 11 games last season of 2017. He finished with 18 tackles, including 1 1/2 tackles for loss and half a sack. Moye had three tackles in 10 games as a true freshman in 2016.

Mendenhall said in mid-December that Moye and fellow sophomore Steven Wright had been suspended for the regular-season finale against Virginia Tech and the Cavaliers’ bowl game for an undisclosed rules violation. Both players were given the option to remain at U.Va. as walk-ons, but they chose to transfer after the semester. Wright has not announced his destination.

The Dukes should have five former U.Va. players on their 2018 roster. Wide receiver David Eldridge, defensive lineman Darrious Carter and linebacker Landan Word all helped JMU finish 14-1 and No. 2 in the FCS playoffs. Matt Terrell, another former U.Va. linebacker, signed with the Dukes in December after a season at Garden City Community College and enrolled at JMU this month.

Also enrolling at JMU now is Ben DiNucci, who started six games as a sophomore for Pittsburgh at quarterback in 2017 before transferring. He was 88 of 158 for 1,091 yards, five touchdowns and five interceptions in 10 games, and he rushed for 54 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries.

He figures to compete to replace Matt Schor, who set numerous JMU records while leading the Dukes to a 28-2 record over two seasons, including the 2016 FCS crown.


The first class of the Hampton Roads Sports Media Hall of Fame will be inducted at about 7 p.m. May 12 at Langley Speedway, according to board member Greg Bicouvaris.

The previously announced class includes former Daily Press sportswriters Mike Minium and Jennifer L. Williams, as well as Jim Ducibella, Carol Hudson and Bruce Rader. Minium will be inducted posthumously.


The ECHL’s Norfolk Admirals said forward Thomas Frazee has been recalled by the American Hockey League’s San Antonio Rampage.

Frazee, 27, has appeared in 16 games for the Admirals since being acquired in November from Atlanta. He has two goals and six assists.
