Holy Name Moves Up In Ranking:Win Over Parma 7-0

first_imgIn the 4the Parma made a switch at quarterback and put Mark Post in as QB with the stronger arm to throw into the wind and the Catching abilities of Kyle Lyon make fans think that Coach Saban should have done it sooner in the strong winds as the athletic Lyon made three great plays before ultimately turning the ball over. There were a vast array of penalties. Everything from roughing the passer to holding to unnecessary roughness during this dual in The Great Lakes Conference. The referees seemed to be having a hard time agreeing on things. Below is an example.The defense of both Holy Name and Parma held each other deep in each of their own territories when on this particular series it was 3rd and a bunch on the one inch line, Parma ball and The Green Wave crashes the line and gets a safety, but it wasn’t called.

It was a cold, wet and windy night at Seperntini Stadium in North Royalton; but that just forced Holy Name to use a committee of running backs that they have at their disposal.In the first quarter Marques Thompson got the bulk of the work racking up 53 yards rushing on 9 carries, and 1 reception for 15 yards before he fumbled the ball.Parma performed well on defense tonight under the lead of Seniors Collin Leyden, Vinny Livdur and Theo Melendez.Marques Thompson being tackled by Junior David Quinones leading the pack.It was a defensive battle moving from end to end of the field with neither team being able to produce much as the wind played a factor throughout the evening.Parma was without six starters tonight. Plagued by injuries, Redmen Head Coach Bruce Saban remarked on his team being hit with seven injuries in their game last week against Rocky River. Some of them won’t be back, some of them will.Battling it out with a team that is senior stacked is tough when you are trying to get something going in the later part of the season. As for Parma, they were lead by the performance of Kyle Lyon and Mark Post for most of the game. David Sprousecenter_img There was also a blocked field goal attempt in this one too as Holy Name tried to close the lid on this one and it was knocked down by Theo Melendez to keep the score at 7-0, since 7:26 remaining in the 1st half.Parma has Bay Village next week and they are focused on the game at hand. The Redmen fall to 5-4 in the Great Lakes Division and hope to get healthy soon. Next game October 28 at 7:00. The Green Wave is coming off a victory last week against Valley Forge 35-25, while on the other side of the coin is Parma that got beat up both on the scoreboard and physically, losing to Rocky River 31-13.Parma was without 6 starters tonight as they squared off in grid iron action with a healthy, senior stacked team as the scene was set for a show down.The weather would prove to be a factor in both passing and kicking games. Strong winds would send the ball way off course and almost blow kicks back to the line of scrimmage if you were going into the wind. Here is a video of the first and only touchdown of the game by Holy Name QB Joe Carter on a 28 yd run.The second half belonged to #25 Jake Stolar. Stolar had 19 carries for 86 yards onoffense, but on defense he recorded 3 interceptions tonight. He put this team on his back when they needed him the most and helped the Green Wave find the much needed victory tonight.It’s remarkable the energy these two teams have to play so hard on offense and defense. These two teams were marching back and forth battling it out tonight and they executed their game plans effectively in the first half. The second quarterwas mostly quarterback Joe Carter throwing and running the ball. Carter was 8 of 13 for112 yards passing, 1 touchdown, and 4 rushes for 27 yards in the first half. This article is presented by The Book Shelf LLC.NORTH ROYALTON, Ohio – The Holy Name Green Wave came into tonight’s contest at 5-3 and Number 12 in Division I, Region 13. The top 8 in each region make the playoffs.They control their own destiny to get in or be on the outside looking in. All they can do is handle their business andeverything else will take care of itself. Tonight they did just that, winning 7-0 over Division I Parma Redmen who in Region 2 were sitting at Number 11.Much like Holy Name, The Parma Redmen had the same record. This is a Great Lakes League fight for the title night.last_img read more

Local educator honored for fishing program

first_imgBy PAMELA CODYSpecial to the PRESSFor many, fond childhood memories often include weekend or summer fishing trips with family. Those memories can include fishing with fancy gear — nice rods and reels — or something as simple as a bamboo pole outfitted with nothing more than a hook and a bobber. Long mornings and afternoons were spent reeling in catfish, perch and bluegill. Yet, for some kids today, those kinds of opportunities don’t exist, whether it’s from lack of access to fishing equipment, or simply because of the hectic schedules between parents and their children.Shane Wilson, long-time educator with the Point Isabel Independent School District, witnessed a lack of parental engagement during his 12 years as the administrator for the PI-ISD’s Disciplinary Alternative Education Program (DAEP). This program is aimed at helping students who have multiple disciplinary issues or who have been suspended. “These kids were good kids who made some bad decisions, and when two or three of them got together, their decision-making abilities plummeted,” Wilson said.Want the whole story?

Harris appointed VP CONCACAF, president CFU

first_imgBRIDGETOWN, Barbados (CMC) – Veteran Barbadian administrator Randy Harris has been elected president of the Caribbean Football Union (CFU).Harris, who heads the Barbados Football Association (BFA), defeated challenger Hillaren Frederick of the US Virgin Islands 27-3 at the elections in Moscow on Monday, to take control of the regional governing body for the sport.Last September, Harris was installed as acting CFU president after then-president Gordon Derrick was slapped with a six-year ban by football’s world governing body over ethics breaches.“I have the responsibility of looking after the region and I have good support from the executive council and members of the CFU and hopefully I could give them the kind of service that they expect from me,” Harris told Barbados Today online.The CFU has come under close scrutiny ever since the infamous cash-for-votes scandal seven years ago when associations were offered cash bribes in exchange for their votes, at the 2011 FIFA election.There was massive fall-out from the scandal with CFU president Jack Warner forced to resign and several other officials sanctioned by FIFA, following an high-profile investigation.Harris, who was re-elected two years ago for a second four-year term as BFA president, said CFU would be pressing ahead with his strategic plan in order to ensure “proper governance”.“CFU has a strategic plan that was done collectively by the board and with some help from CONCACAF,” the 59-year-old said.“We will be keeping to that strategic plan, trying to develop proper governance and integrity for the organisation. We are looking to assist our member associations with development in all areas including finance, general administration and of course the game.”Harris had earlier on Monday been elected CONCACAF’s newest vice-president by acclamation, when the continental governing body for football in North, Central America and the Caribbean staged its 33rd Ordinary Congress, also in Moscow.He will serve in the position for the next two years.last_img read more

USA Cycling announces long team for delayed Tokyo Olympics

first_img Officials from USA Cycling plan to take advantage of the yearlong delay of the Tokyo Olympics caused by the coronavirus pandemic, and a big step came with the announcement Thursday of a preliminary roster in three of its disciplines.The governing body revealed the names of 38 riders who could eventually compete in Tokyo in road racing, mountain biking and track cycling — the BMX teams will be announced at a later date. That not only gives the riders a chance to better formulate a plan to peak next summer but also gives USA Cycling the opportunity to promote them to a sports-starved world.“This is one of the few areas where the COVID situation is helping us,” USA Cycling chief executive Rob DeMartini told The Associated Press. “Typically we would have announced a long team eight weeks out, but this year we have an abnormally long period of time to work with the long team more specifically. We have now a year to both train and develop them in a more focused way, but also market them in a better way.”The American team took home two golds and five medals total from the Rio de Janeiro Olympics in 2016, and USA Cycling has set an ambitious goal of seven medals in Tokyo. There is ample reason to believe the team will achieve the goal, too, given what some members of the long team have accomplished over the past year.Chloe Dygert won the time trial world championship and finished fourth in the road race in the English town of Harrogate last September, then joined Jennifer Valente, Emma White and Lily Williams in shattering the world record in the team pursuit on the track. Meanwhile, Kate Courtney is the reigning mountain bike World Cup champion.“It’s going to be an interesting year,” Courtney told the AP. “I’m really focused on the next month or two in terms of training. I think we have a really good plan to make the most of it. That’s the immediate focus. We’re doing a fundraising and all kind of little things but the long-term goal is obviously to end the season strong and be ready to stand on the start line.”Courtney’s spot is secured after her fifth-place finish at last year’s world championships, and the Americans could add two discretionary nominations if their national ranking holds into next year. Lea Davison, Haley Batten, Hannah Finchamp, Erin Huck and Chloe Woodruff were the other women chosen for the long team.The U.S. currently has one slot in men’s mountain biking with Chris Blevins and Keegan Swenson on the long team.Dygert also has a spot in Tokyo secured after her time trial world title. She’s joined on the road long team by Krista Doebel-Hickok, Katie Hall, Amber Neben, Coryn Rivera, Lauren Stephens, Leah Thomas, Tayler Wiles and Ruth Winder.The long team for the men’s road race includes Lawson Craddock, Ian Garrison, Alex Howes, Sepp Kuss, Brandon McNulty, Neilson Powless and Tejay van Garderen.On the track, the quartet of Dygert, Valente, White and Williams headline the preliminary list. Also in the mix for the Tokyo Games are Christina Birch, Megan Jastrab, Mandy Marquardt and Kendall Ryan.Adrian Hegvary, Dan Halloway and Gavin Hoover make up the long team for men’s track cycling.“Being able to define our initial Olympic long team 13 months before the Olympic Games is a first for us,” said Jeff Pierce, USA Cycling’s director of elite athletics. “Next June will be another defining moment where we will be able to announce the official team headed to Tokyo for mountain bike, road, track, BMX racing and BMX freestyle.” Written By FOLLOW US LIVE TV WATCH US LIVE SUBSCRIBE TO UScenter_img First Published: 12th June, 2020 07:11 IST Last Updated: 12th June, 2020 07:11 IST USA Cycling Announces Long Team For Delayed Tokyo Olympics Officials from USA Cycling plan to take advantage of the yearlong delay of the Tokyo Olympics caused by the coronavirus pandemic, and a big step came with the announcement Thursday of a preliminary roster in three of its disciplines Associated Press Television News COMMENTlast_img read more

Ex-football player receives 20-year sentence on drug charge

first_img Written By Associated Press Television News COMMENT SUBSCRIBE TO US Last Updated: 18th July, 2020 06:32 IST Ex-football Player Receives 20-year Sentence On Drug Charge A former college football player who went to trial for violating North Carolina’s sports agent law has received a 20-year prison sentence on a drug conviction in Georgia following a probation violation WATCH US LIVEcenter_img A former college football player who went to trial for violating North Carolina’s sports agent law has received a 20-year prison sentence on a drug conviction in Georgia following a probation violation.Superior Court Judge Terry N. Massey imposed the sentence Wednesday on Christopher Jamel Hawkins, 37, on a charge originating from an April 2009 traffic stop. According to a sentencing filing Friday in Morgan County, Hawkins receives credit for time served in custody for roughly three weeks in 2009 and since June 2012.That’s when Hawkins – who played at UNC and Marshall from 2001-05 – pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of possession with intent to distribute cocaine in a deal to receive 10 years of probation in a first-offender program. A grand jury indicted Hawkins in June 2009 for cocaine trafficking, marijuana possession and a seatbelt violation, according to court documents.Brad J. Evans, Hawkins’ Georgia-based attorney, declined comment Friday night when reached by The Associated Press.In early March, a North Carolina judge declared a mistrial in Hawkins’ case for violating the state’s agent law by providing cash to ex-Tar Heels football players Robert Quinn, Charles Brown and Kendric Burney in 2010.The jury couldn’t reach a verdict, leaving open the possibility of another trial. Prosecutor W. Scott Harkey declined comment on the status of that case but told the AP his office is aware of the Georgia sentencing.In February, North Carolina authorities arrested Hawkins for receiving a parcel containing about $160,000 worth of marijuana and THC edibles. He was taken into custody in March on a Georgia arrest warrant, with a court document citing that case and a separate 2016 drug case in North Carolina among probation violations.Image credits: AP First Published: 18th July, 2020 06:31 IST LIVE TV FOLLOW USlast_img read more
