SALISBURY. Cameron Sexton didn't expect to be here.

Not at Catawba College, as the quarterback of a Division II team after four years at North Carolina, where he earned his degree in May with one year of eligibility remaining.

Coming out of Scotland High in 2004, Sexton chose North Carolina over Florida State and a late-arriving South Carolina, imagining many things.
