The Rodriguez family lives in mobile home #4 in Airport
Road Park in Chapel Hill. Sonia Miranda lives there with her boyfriend, two of
her sons, and her daughter, Tanya. Joseph, 7, is her youngest son.
Sonia Miranda is originally from El Salvador, but her
children were born in the United States.
Joseph tries to pedal his bike. Both tires are flat but he
rides it around the neighborhood anyway.
Joseph Rodriguez, 7, watches as his sister Tanya, 14, texts
on her phone.
Tanya just started high school in Hillsborough. She moved to
a new district because she was mandated to live with her father due to drug
problems. After going to school high, her case was reported to a social
worker. She is only allowed to live with
her mom on the weekends or when she has meetings with her social worker.
Despite the trouble his sister has gotten into, Joseph likes
school. “I’m going to be good,” he says after his mother talks about his
Joseph throws a tantrum and runs to his older brother’s room
as his mom and her boyfriend watch a Nazi movie on the television. Joseph’s
mom, Sonia Miranda, wants Joseph to spend more time with his dad, so that his
father can discipline him.
One of Joseph’s older brothers, Marlin, 21,
holds his hands as they hang out on their porch watching the rain. Marlin works
at Chipotle and helps pay off the car payments on his mom’s new Toyota. He
hasn’t finished high school but he plans to try to get his G.E.D. this year.
Tanya holds Raven, Penny Shinkman’s (back) new puppy, as
Joseph pets him.
Shinkman, 19, went to school with Marlin and recently got
back into town. Because she doesn’t have a place to live yet, she can’t
keep her puppy. Shinkman says she just needs someone to babysit him for three weeks.
Tanya holds the puppy and talks to Joseph about whether or not their dad would
let them keep it while Shinkman finds a place to live.
Sonia Miranda kisses her son, Joseph, in her hammock on
their porch. Miranda is originally from El Salvador and speaks little English,
but her Joseph was born here.
Many of the Rodriguez’s neighbors in Airport Road Park are
Hispanic immigrants that take pride in where they live. Neighbors are invited
to birthday parties and a lot of the children play with each other after
school. Tanya hopes to move back with her mom by February.
Joseph tries to play a word game on his sister’s
phone. Joseph has a first generation iPod that connects to the Internet, but he
doesn’t have a phone yet so he loves to play with his sister’s.
Joseph and Tanya wait anxiously for their father’s response
to whether or not they can keep the puppy for three weeks. They asked their
dad, Nelson Rodriguez, about the dog right when he pulled into the driveway to
pick them up for the night. After a some deliberation, he said yes. They have a
collar and lease for Raven, but Shinkman didn’t have any food.
Joseph plays alone in the hammock on his porch
during a rainstorm. He keeps talking
about how he is excited to learn to play football with his friend soon, but for
now he has his hammock.
Because of redistricting in the county, Southern Durham High School is in a new division this year. The school dropped from 4A to 3AA and the football team is competing in the new conference for the first time. Coach Montaze McRae and Coach Mike Jones sit on tires used for drills as they watch the boys run sprints after practice. “The thing about football is you have to be all as you are,” Southern’s Head Coach Adrian Jones explains. “You have to strategize how to be together.”
Eric Allen (52) and Tyler Herbert (46) listen to their teammates during half time against Northern High School in the fourth game of the season. The Spartans of Southern Durham had lost two out of the first three games. Head Coach Adrian Jones remembers the first two loses as he says, “Those games made us a better team. We learned from the mistakes that we made in those games and got them corrected.” Southern’s Spartans won the game against Northern 56 - 54.
The Spartans stretch before their fifth game of the season and their first conference game against Northern Vance in Henderson, N.C. Southern won the game 62-6. Their landslide-win ranked them first in their conference.
Strong friendships form throughout the season as the players spend time together both on and off the field. “We be a family,” senior Xavier Harrison says.
Noah Chase (71) and Tyler Herbert (46) help their injured teammate, Roosevelt Holdings (43), off the field after an opponent stepped on his ankle in the seventh game of the season against Cardinal Gibbons. Holdings recovered after two weeks but said, “I was a little nervous I wasn’t going to be able to play” when he noticed how badly he was hurt. The Spartans won 45 - 28. They have still only lost two games this season.
Kalif Dean, a sophomore, watches the third playoff game against Orange High School after being taken out for a break. “My favorite thing about football is the contact,” Dean says. “I just love the game.”
Teammates pour water on Marvin Tillman after he finished his interviews with local news stations after scoring the winning touchdown in the playoff game against Orange High School. The Spartans are advancing into the fourth round of the playoffs. “I was excited because I had never made a play that big,” Tillman said. This was Tillman’s second touchdown this season. The first year Head Coach Adrian Jones coached at Southern, his team lost in the fourth playoff game. This year, the team hopes to make it to the state championships.
Southern won every playoff game, making it to the NCHSAA 3AA State Championships. Head Coach Adrian Jones (right) watches as Derrick Robinson, a senior, throws a football around as they wait for the buses to arrive to take them to Winston Salem. Jones required the entire team to wear collared shirts to look professional when they arrived for the NCHSAA 3AA State Championship.
Students and faculty came out to see the Spartan football team off to the NCHSAA 3AA State Championship game. The bus drivers drove the team through the parking lot beside the school where students had lined up to say goodbye. This is the school's first time playing in the State Championship.
Dominique Mims separates himself from the team during halftime at the state championship game. Mims is frustrated with his team because Crest is winning 21 -7. Coaches told him to use his anger to fuel him in the second half. Mims was named Southern's defensive player of the game after making four tackles and assisting on 10.
During the fourth quarter of the NCHSAA 3AA State Championship game against Crest, Sophomore Toney Bass runs in a 6-yard touchdown. "I like the emotion in the game,” Bass says. “It’s a game where you can take out your anger.” 5’6’’ Bass says he got to be ‘football fast’ by running sprints while dragging weights behind him during the summer.
38 - 30. The Spartans won. William Cameron (right) Noah Chase (left) celebrate as the team storms the field. The State Championship was the pinnacle of their thirteen game winning streak. Next year will look different for the Spartans. 13 players are graduating and Head Coach Adrian Jones accepted a coaching job at his alma mater, N.C. Central University.
“It’s been a great seven years of my life,” Jones said about his time at Southern. “I love Southern Durham. I grew up there. I played there. I coached there and it’s my family. I’m happy we made history with Southern’s first state championship and I’ll have a smile on my face thinking of that every time I come back.”
