The sixth annual Frosty Awards will take place in late April and honor athletic excellence in Carson-Newman's athletic department. 



Football at Virginia Union: Trailing by three late in the third quarter to Virginia Union, Carson-Newman turned to Antonio Wimbush The Panthers pounded out an 11-play, 80-yard drive capping it with a one-yard Tabyus Taylor touchdown run to put VUU up 16-13 midway through the quarter.  Carson-Newman countered with the first of three drives polished off by Wimbush scores. Wimbush pounded the ball into the endzone with seven seconds left in the third quarter to put Carson-Newman back in front.  He scored on a four-yard touchdown run. After the Eagles' defense forced a three-and-out, the Carson-Newman ground game took back over and was aided by an unsportsmanlike foul on VUU midway through the possession.  Wimbush capped the possession with a three-yard dive to put C-N up two scores with 10:29 to play. He added his final tally on another four-yard run to polish off the comeback and get a South Atlantic Conference team its first ever win at VUU's Hovey Field.
