UWF Gets A Look At Live-Ball Performance In First Fall Scrimmage

first_imgPENSACOLA, Fla. – The UWF football team went through a spirited 70-minute scrimmage at the University Park Artificial Turf Field Friday night.The Argonauts worked through approximately 80 plays that gave the first, second and third team offense and defense a good amount of reps in live ball situations.All four quarterbacks saw time on the field, with redshirt freshman Grey Jackson completing 9-of-18 passes for 125 yards, and graduate transfer Kaleb Nobles throwing for 129 yards on 15-of-23. Each signal caller threw for a score as well.But after the team’s ninth day of preseason practice was in the books, UWF head coach Pete Shinnick praised the effort of his defense on forcing a number of turnovers and keeping the offense from producing many lengthy drives.”We’ve got some pretty good guys playing at a high level on defense,” Shinnick said. “What we’ve seen with our offense, is if they are off, the windows are small and the defense definitely had a great day today.”Lawrence Lee had the big offensive highlight of the night when he collected a deflected ball in traffic and ran uncontested for a 75-yard touchdown score from Jackson on the 15th play of the schedule. Ishmel Morrow led all receivers with eight catches for 89 yards, including a 20-yard score late in the workout.Friday was the teams’ first of two scrimmages in fall camp. On Thursday, UWF will host Fan Day in conjunction with a 7 p.m. scrimmage on campus.  Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more

Each team afforded a `home crowd’, argues Elworthy

first_imgLONDON, (CMC) – Cricket World Cup managing director, Steve Elworthy, says every effort was made to ensure the 10 participating teams were guaranteed “home crowds”, during next year’s showpiece.A day/night encounter between hosts England and South Africa at the Oval in London will raise the curtain on the 2019 World Cup, and will be the first of 45 preliminary round matches in the May 3o to July 14 tournament.Two-time winners West Indies will not play a single match in London, however, especially at the Oval in the south which has been the traditonal base of the Caribbean support over the years.“There are some fantastic head to head fixtures – England versus Australia at Lord’s and India versus Pakistan at Old Trafford as well as England versus India at Edgbaston spring to mind,” Elsworthy said.“As organisers we can promise the teams and fans we will work hard to provide the perfect stage for this event.“Because of the UK’s diverse population, every competing team will also be guaranteed a ‘home crowd’ every time they play at some of the most iconic cricket grounds in the world.”The Windies, who will enter the tournament as rank underdogs, will play two matches in Nottingham, Southampton and Manchester, and a match each at Taunton, Chester-le-Street and Leeds.The Oval, however, holds precious memories for West Indies, and was also the scene of their last one-day title success when they beat the hosts to win the 2004 Champions Trophy.Significantly, the Windies have not played a Test at the venue in 14 years.With the tournament resorting to the format of each team playing one another in the preliminaries and the top four progressing to the semi-finals, ICC chief executive David Richardson said high quality competition was anticipated.“Next summer fans around the world will be treated to compelling and competitive cricket as the best teams in the world go head to head in this round robin format for the right to be crowned World champions,” he said.“This schedule also gives fans across England and Wales the opportunity to watch world class cricket on their doorstep with all teams moving around the country.“We know from previous ICC events that every country will be proudly supported at each of the venues creating an exceptional atmosphere and a real celebration of the game.”last_img read more

Mexican player ‘could be Raúl Jiménez’s teammate at Wolves’, we take…

first_imgThe reason for it is a story from Marca which reported Wolves interest in the 23-year-old. However, there’s overexcitement in the articles which are covering it.The original report was actually about Sevilla’s interest in César Montes. They’re expected to battle La Liga rivals Valencia for the signing of the Mexican player.At the end of the story, Marca wrote that Wolves are another club who are interested in the defender. And that was enough to start all of this.Embed from Getty ImagesThe Mexican media has been giving Wolves some huge attention since Raúl Jiménez joined the club a couple of years ago, so having another one of their players there would be quite a big thing.That’s why website Nación Deportes, like many others, has a headline saying ‘Player from Rayados could be Raúl Jiménez’s teammate at Wolves’.With several stories like this out there, we must stick to the fact that Marca only reported Wolves interest, with no claims of negotiations or bids from the Premier League side so far.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayInvest With VICShe collects rental-like income every month!

Chisora apologises for brawl with Haye

first_imgDereck Chisora has “wholeheartedly” apologised for his part in a brawl with fellow Brit David Haye in Munich.The duo clashed after Chisora’s defeat by defending WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko on Saturday night.“I have let my family, my team and worst of all the sport I love down,” added Chisora in a statement.Haye also released a statement, saying he would, if requested, “happily assist the boxing authorities with any investigation they wish to launch”.German prosecutors told BBC Sport on Monday that both fighters are suspected of committing offences that could carry prison terms.Haye is suspected of grievous bodily harm – a crime which, if proven, carries a prison sentence of six months to 10 years. Chisora, who admitted his behaviour was “inexcusable”, is under suspicion of malicious injury, which carries a jail sentence of up to five years, and making a “threat”. The latter is a lesser offence punishable by a fine or imprisonment of up to one year.The statement from Zimbabwean-born Chisora revealed he was sorry for his “part in the regrettable scenes both before and after what was to be the biggest night of my career”.He added: “While my behaviour was inexcusable, there were many things that went on behind the scenes that ultimately caused my frustrations to boil over, however this is of course no excuse.”Haye, who has retired from boxing but was at the fight working as a television pundit, added in his statement: “I realise I am no angel – and don’t mind a bit of professional trash-talk to help raise boxing’s profile – but, during my 21 years in the sport, I have never been involved in, or even witnessed, such a serious fracas.”Haye, who has now returned home, left the country on a plane before he could be questioned but German police still want to speak to him. Chisora and his trainer Don Charles were arrested at Munich airport before being released without charge on Sunday evening.On top of a police investigation, the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBofC) general secretary, Robert Smith, says Haye and Chisora could face life bans from the sport.“It’s a possibility,” Smith told BBC Radio 5 live. “The board have many powers. They can fine, they can suspend and they can withdraw a licence.”The BBBofC have confirmed that Chisora has been called to appear before hearing on 14 March in relation to his conduct before and after the fight with Klitschko.The president of the Federation of German Professional Boxers, Dr Thomas Put, told BBC Sport Chisora should get a lifetime ban from the sport, admitting “he should never fight anywhere”. But Haye’s trainer Adam Booth, who claimed Haye was acting in self defence, told BBC Radio 5 live: “If Dereck has apologised, then he deserves respect for that and I hope he goes on and has a successful boxing career.”Although Haye has retired from the sport, the board could choose to effectively ban him by denying him a licence if he seeks to fight again. However, Booth told 5 live on Monday he would only come out of retirement to fight one of the Kiltschkos.The scenes unfolded after Haye showed up at the news conference to confront Vitali Klitschko, who he believes changed his mind on a potential fight between the pair.But that sparked a verbal exchange with Haye and Chisora squaring up to each other before a brawl ensued.Chisora accused Haye of “glassing him”, before saying at least four times that he would shoot the former WBA heavyweight champion. He added: “If David don’t fight me, I am going to physically burn him.”Smith said the scuffle ranked among of the lowest moments in British boxing history.“I’m very disappointed and very saddened that, in a sport I love, I have to deal with this,” he added.“I have to speak to the German Boxing Federation and German police and then take appropriate action. This is not good, it’s bad, we have to deal with it accordingly.”Chisora has had part of his fight purse withheld by the World Boxing Council after slapping Klitschko at the pre-fight weigh-in on Friday. Chisora spat water towards Klitschko’s brother, Wladimir, moments before Saturday night’s bout began.More controversy followed when Chisora exchanged words with the Klitschko brothers after the result was announced.last_img read more
