Local family seeks information on missing Oak Hall woman

Alyssa Taylor

A local family is suspecting that Alyssa Taylor, 25, of Oak Hall, Va, may have been in a fatal crash on 14 Sept. 2022. Her last known contact was a text message to her mother on Sept. 13, when she told her that she would be traveling with Daniel Eugene McNeal, 51, of Exmore, Va, in a Mack tractor-trailer.

McNeal was killed in a crash Sept. 14. on southbound Interstate 85 in Hillsborough, North Carolina, when he veered off the highway and hit an overpass before crashing around 2:15 am, according to NC Highway Patrol spokesman Trooper Brian Martin. The truck was “engulfed in flames and a high volume of fire (was) impinging on the bridge,” fire officials said in the post.

Taylor’s family wants to know if she was also in the truck that claimed McNeal’s life.

Longhorns Daily News: Texas DC Pete Kwiatkowski has historically been dominant against air raid offenses, like Texas Tech’s

Before he was the Texas Longhorns defensive coordinator, Pete Kwiatkowski helped lead the Washington Huskies‘ defensive to three Pac-12 North titles, two Pac-12 Championships, and a College Football Playoff appearance, where the Huskies were whooped by the Alabama Crimson Tide. He’s had a lot of success in college football, in other words.

That’s especially the case against the air raid offensive scheme, Inside Texas notes.

From Inside Texas: “No matter what [then Washington State head coach Mike Leach] threw (literally) at Kwiatkowski’s defenses, PK was always a step ahead. Wazzu never topped 20 points against a defense Kwiatkowski coordinated or co-coordinated (Note: the 2020 Apple Cup was not held due to COVID-19, and Leach was at Mississippi State by that point.)”

The Texas Tech Red Raiders will trot out their air raid offense this weekend in Lubbock. It’s led by redshirt sophomore quarterback Donovan Smith and offensive coordinator
