Pirate fans share same love

Many people who are either Greenville natives or have lived in the city for a while tend to think of two people who embody the heart and soul of East Carolina University athletics, Ronald Vincent and Marvin Jarman.

Vincent, who is better known as “RV” around town, and Jarman have been friends for decades. The two met when Jarman’s brother played baseball with RV, and the rest was history. They are now in their 70s and still are the best of friends because of their love for ECU athletics.

Their friendship began with sports in Greenville and has consisted of it ever since.
