Briscoe Named One Of Three Finalists For Walter Payton Award

first_imgThat includes Saturday’s shootout with South Dakota, where he and Streveler went head to head in the most entertaining game of the day in the second round of the FCS Playoffs. The teams combined for over 1,300 yards and each quarterback threw for over 500 yards, including Briscoe who finished the day 28-of-43 for 505 yards and four touchdowns. Briscoe is the reigning Payton Award winner and can join Appalachian State’s Armanti Edwards as the only players in FCS history to win the award multiple times in a career. The senior from Houston will be joined by South Dakota’s Chris Streveler and UC Davis wide receiver Keelan Doss at the awards ceremony. Briscoe currently leads the nation in total passing yards (4,398) and passing yards per game (366.5), a mark nearly 20 yards per game clear of the second best in the FCS. The senior set an FCS record last year with 57 touchdown passes for the year and this year leads the nation in that category again with 41. In 12 games played Briscoe has surpassed the 300-yard mark 10 times and has thrown for at least four scores seven times. He has been even better in the second half of the season, throwing for 1,718 yards and 18 touchdowns in his last four contests. Named for the legendary College and Pro Football Hall of Fame running back, the Walter Payton Award is given to the outstanding offensive player in the subdivision since 1987, will be presented at the STATS FCS Awards Banquet Jan. 5 in Frisco, Texas – on the eve of the national championship game. Past winners include Steve McNair, Tony Romo, Brian Westbrook, John Friesz, Brian Finneran, Jimmy Garoppolo and Cooper Kupp. Meanwhile, Streveler was named the Missouri Valley Player of the Year and as a dual-threat at center for the Coyotes, leads the nation in total offense (373.4 ypg) despite Briscoe being right on his heels (366.9 ypg) in the nation’s second spot. He threw for 520 yards and accounted for six touchdowns in South Dakota’s loss on Saturday to the Kats. HUNTSVILLE, Texas – Bearkat quarterback Jeremiah Briscoe will have the chance to make FCS history in January as he was named one of three finalists for the Walter Payton Award in an announcement by STATS FCS on Monday. He is seeking to become the first FCS player since Eastern Washington’s Bo Levi Mitchell in 2010 and 2011 to lead the nation in touchdown passes in consecutive seasons. Briscoe has surpassed numerous Sam Houston and Southland marks this year and with 112 career touchdowns to his credit, is just nine short of Jeremy Moses’ SLC record in that category. The third invitee is Doss, the first UC Davis player in program history to win the Big Sky’s Offensive Player of the Year honor. He set single-season records at UC Davis in total receiving yards (1,499) and receptions (115), and still leads the nation in both categories despite the Aggies not having played past the end of the regular season.last_img read more

Ainhoa ​​Vicente, a new ‘lioness’ for La Roja

first_imgThe SheBelieves Cup will not be another tournament for one of the 23 called by the Spanish National Team. Ainhoa ​​Vicente Moraza has received the first call from La Roja. It is the last great signing of Spain. At 24 years old, the debut of the defender of Athletic de Bilbao in North American lands and before the best selections of the planet (United States, England and Japan) can arrive. A different bet than what Jorge Vilda usually uses. The Madrid coach tends to give opportunities to soccer players who stand out in lower categories of the National Team. It is not the case of Ainhoa. The San Sebastian has been a key player in Athletic for several seasons. In the last three seasons he has maintained his title of holder. First with Joseba Agirre and also with Ángel Villacampa. He already has more than 145 official matches in the ranks of the Basque team and adds six goals. The defender stakes because of its speed and its great versatility. It is lateral and can play with skill by both bands. A strong point for Vilda, who currently fully trusts in Slide Y Leila For those positions. Sometimes he uses the Levante player to act as an extreme and that could give Ainhoa ​​his chance.A lioness more in La RojaAthletic is in luck. Another player comes to La Roja. In the last lists only Lucia Garcia was among those called (she was the only one to go to the World Cup in France and later for the qualifying matches for the European Championship). One more lioness to fight in the war. Ainhoa’s legs have a lot of football to offer. Spain waits impatiently.last_img read more

Lorry driver gets 108 years for 2010 fatal accident

first_imgA lorry driver was on Thursday sentenced to a total of 108 years imprisonment after he was found guilty on 12 counts of causing death by dangerous driving. Chaitram Moonsammy, 42, of Black Bush Polder, Corentyne, received the sentence from Justice Brassington Reynolds at the Berbice Assizes.On October 29, 2010, along the East Coast Berbice Highway, a lorry and a minibus collided resulting in the death of 12 people.Moonsammy, the lorry driver, was on trial for driving motor lorry GLL 8863 in aChaitram Moonsammymanner dangerous to the public, resulting in the deaths of Oudit Narine Babulall, Salmaa Razac, Marques Ault, Cindy Jaggernauth, Josiah Khan, Talika Mendonca, Patricia Asgarally, Salmar Juman, Orlando De Mattos, Nazaradin Mahinudin, Chetram Ramphal and Janet Baker; all of Number 19 Village.The mixed jury found him guilty on a 10-2 majority. Attorney Mescaline Bacchus asked for leniency, stating the psychological impact of having to wait almost eight years for trial.Bacchus argued that Moonsammy would have already been punished for the crime and called for the court not to impose a custodial sentence.He said the 12 deaths were caused as a result of an accident and not an intentional offence.However, Justice Reynolds said those psychological impacts will not outweigh public interest. The Judge also sounded a warning to would be errant drivers, saying there must be proper use of the country’s roadways.“We are a country of less than a million people and can ill afford one death; we need all for the development of Guyana. We do not know what contributions those 12 would have made to the development of Guyana, the Judge stated.Following the proceedings, some relatives of the deceased were seen dancing while others wept.The father of four was arrested the very day of the accident and remanded on November 2, 2010. Twenty days later, he was granted bail.Justice Reynolds said the court took into account all the mitigating factors which were presented and deducted one year leaving him with nine years for each count.The prosecution’s case was presented by State Prosecutor Tuanna Hardy. During the three and a half weeks of trial proceedings, the prosecution called 18 witnesses.last_img read more

Pruet takes pole at Telcel-Motorola 200

first_imgMEXICO CITY – Scott Pruett won the pole for today’s Telcel-Motorola 200, the third race south of the border in NASCAR’s Busch Series. Pruett averaged 103.647 mph on his fastest lap Saturday in the No. 41 Dodge on the 2.518-mile Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez course. Mexico City native Carlos Contreras was second at 103.407 mph in a 22 Dodge, and Juan Pablo Montoya, the Colombian star who jumped from Formula One to NASCAR last season, qualified third at 103.391 mph in a Dodge. Montoya finished first in Friday’s practice and blamed changes in his car for his third place Saturday. “Yesterday the car had really good balance and today they made some changes and the car became really tight,” Montoya said. “I told them we shouldn’t make the changes but they said it will be better. I guess it wasn’t. “Things like that will happen and it’s quite a learning curve. But hopefully we have a decent chance of winning tomorrow.” Mexican Jorge Goeters, the pole winner in 2005, was fourth at 103.203. The 46-year-old Pruett said his road-course expertise should give him the edge. “I’ve had experience on road courses, which will give me a bit of an advantage. As long we do things smart and make the right calls on stops we’ve got a shot to win it,” Pruett said. “Our car is running is good and we are going to just keep doing what we are doing.” center_img Contreras ecstatic about his performance. “I don’t believe it. I’m very happy. Can you see my face, my smile?” Contreras said. “Respects to Scott. You beat me man. You’re fast. But tomorrow is a different day. There are different strategies and there are 80 laps not one.” Defending champion Denny Hamlin qualified fifth. “Last year, we just knew from a month before hand we were going to win. I kind of have that same confidence this year,” he said. “Scott Pruett and Juan Pablo Montoya have the road-course background and are with awesome teams, so we are going to step up our game to beat them.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

‘Unacceptable’ Arsenal put Wenger in firing line

first_img0Shares0000Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger takes his seat for the English Premier League football match against Liverpool August 27, 2017 © AFP / Anthony DevlinLIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, Aug 28 – Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger described his team’s performance as “unacceptable” after they were swept aside 4-0 by Liverpool at Anfield.Arsenal turned in an abject performance in Sunday’s game, despite the return of Alexis Sanchez following his delayed start to the season, and Wenger did not attempt to offer up any excuses for the humiliation. “Everything,” said Wenger when asked what had gone wrong.“I think from the first minute to the last minute we were not at the level requested for such a game.“Not physically, not technically, not mentally and we we were punished. That’s basically it.“Of course, you can analyse the chances we gave away, but I just think overall the performance was not at the requested level.”Wenger, who spent barely two minutes in his post-match press conference, could offer little explanation as to why the display was so abject.But after using the uncertainty over his own future as an excuse for some poor showings last season, he could not do the same at the start of the new campaign.“That’s a question which is very difficult to answer straight away after the game,” said the Frenchman, who signed a new two-year contract in May, after being asked to explain his side’s capitulation.“There are some reasons, but I don’t think I have too much to comment on that now.“Last season I said that after 30 games. Now we have played three games. We have played one home game and two away games.“Given our first two games, our performances were quite good, but today the performance was not acceptable at that level.”Wenger had been more forthcoming in a television interview after the game, although he was not in the mood for knee-jerk over-reaction.– No hug from Mignolet –“The result is a consequence of our performance,” he said. “We were not good enough.“We were beaten everywhere physically. In the end I believe we made it easier for them and the mistakes gave them a cushion.“It was shocking, but our performance was absolutely disastrous. Not to become too emotional, we have to take some distance.“There are some reasons behind it and the players now go on their international break, but we do have to take the consequences of our performance today.“If you find a manager who is happy with that performance today, I wish you good luck. The emotions are negative, but it’s not the right moment to talk about that.”The manner of the defeat will again put Wenger’s long-term future in the spotlight, but he did not want to comment on the away supporters booing his team and chanting for him to go.“I don’t want to answer that. It’s part of the crowd’s feeling,” he said.“If some people feel as if I am the problem, then I am sorry that I am the problem.“But we want the fans to be with us even when we lose like that. All we can do is come back and give them a different level of performance.”Opposite number Jurgen Klopp was understandably delighted with his team’s display and especially happy that his gamble in replacing first-choice goalkeeper Simon Mignolet with Loris Karius had paid off.“We created the situation before the season started that we want three really strong goalkeepers,” Klopp said. “And that’s our situation now.“I told Si yesterday and he didn’t give me a hug and say, ‘Thanks boss, that’s what I thought we should do!’ But I wanted to give him a rest and have Loris in the game.“If nothing else, I can say 100 percent, our next game against Manchester City, Simon starts.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

St. Antony, Moi Girls Nangili clinch Copa titles

first_img0Shares0000St. Antony’s Boys Kitale goalkeeper Issa Emuria is carried shoulder high by teammates and fans after saving three penalties during the Copa Coacacola National final against St. Peters Mumias on July 28, 2018.ELDORET, Kenya, Jul 28- St. Antony’s Boys goalkeeper Issa Emuria was the hero of the side saving three penalties as the Kitale based team clinched the 2018 Copa Cocacola National Secondary School Games title with a 3-1 post-match penalties win over St. Peters Boys Mumias at the Hill School in Eldoret on Saturday.St. Antony reached the final last year and lost 1-0 to Kakamega High School and gifted themselves with a well worked win, one that would have been wrapped up in regulation and extra time had they been more efficient in scoring. Head coach George Owoko was pleased with the result especially with his Under-19s side having failed to reach the final. This is his third Copa title as a coach having won in 2010 and 2011 with Ambira High School.“I had hoped to clinch a double but that is how football is sometimes. The Under-16 boys had made us proud by winning this title and it is also a good day because we have won bronze with the Under-19s. We played really well and dominated the game which makes me very happy,” Owoko told Capital Sport after the game.On penalties, Emuria proved to be the genius stopping the first two kicks taken by captain Felix Otieno and James Wafula, using his height to his advantage.St. Antony’s Boys Kitale midfielder Daniel Odhiambo takes on St. Peters Mumias Ainea during the Copa Coacacola National final on July 28, 2018 at the Hill School in EldoretThe Solidarity Boys were in firm control Christopher Raila and Leon David scoring sublime efforts to give the side a 2-0 advantage.

JOBS LOST AS FUNDING AXED TO ‘GAA FOR ALL’ PROJECT IN DONEGAL

first_imgFeile success: Termon hosted Mungret GAA girls from Limericak in a successful weekend for Donegal GAA. Now funding to a pilot project has ended.THERE is consternation in GAA circles in County Donegal today with the news that funding has been stopped and four jobs lost at the ‘GAA For All’ Project.On a weekend when clubs in the county hosted GAA teams from around the country for the Feile Under-14 tournament – which gave a massive boost to the local economy – Donegal Daily has learned of the cuts.Four coaches lost their jobs on Friday. Their positions had been funded by Peace III as a pilot project, but funding has now ended. The coaches had taken gaelic games into schools around the Letterkenny and district area in the year since the project was launched by GAA chairman Liam O’Neill in Donegal.Mr O’Neill is in Derry and Donegal this weekend, the finals of the tournament are being held in Celtic Park today.“It’s a real shame and quite ironic that on a weekend when Donegal clubs played host to the Feile that the brilliant work of the GAA For All project has ended,” said one senior club coach.“We could see the work being done in the schools when our players came to training with the clubs and it brought a lot of new young people into the sport.” A Letterkenny and district schools competition saw almost 400 children taking part as the project also reached out to the Protestant community and new nationals communities.Special needs schools and children also took part.The four coaches took their project into 41 national schools during the past year, with each school getting at least two and half hours of coaching per week.“With all the money the GAA has pumped into the sport, especially in Dublin, it would be a shame to see the end of GAA For All,” said another club manager.“Hopefully something will be done in time to get it up and running again.” JOBS LOST AS FUNDING AXED TO ‘GAA FOR ALL’ PROJECT IN DONEGAL was last modified: June 30th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:JOBS LOST AS FUNDING AXED TO ‘GAA FOR ALL’ PROJECT IN DONEGALlast_img read more

Dodgers: Without a trace

first_img DePodesta’s first step toward redemption, then, will be his first hiring of a manager, something that will take place sometime this month. The search doesn’t figure to take long, as DePodesta said Monday he has had a short list in mind since including an escape clause in the contract Tracy signed a year ago. Who is on that short list is anybody’s guess for now, although DePodesta promised to make it public when candidates are interviewed. DePodesta was not available for comment Tuesday. The biggest need for an overhaul, though, might not be on the infield or in the outfield but in the clubhouse. Stories were told quietly throughout the season of internal strife, although that usually is the case with all losing clubs and even with some winning ones. The late-August blowup between second baseman Jeff Kent and center fielder Milton Bradley, which almost certainly is going to lead to Bradley being traded or non-tendered this winter, has been well-chronicled. But there were countless other incidents that went unreported, most of which never would have been tolerated in a clubhouse patrolled by Paul Lo Duca, Shawn Green and Robin Ventura. And that is where DePodesta’s biggest adjustment is called for. The Dodgers clearly need a disciplinarian in the manager’s office, one that won’t look the other way while players run to the clubhouse between at-bats to check messages on their cell phones. They also need clubhouse leaders with a different approach from the anti-social Kent, guys who can build enough goodwill with younger teammates that those teammates will be receptive when offered constructive criticism. Those, of course, are intangibles – something DePodesta’s computer-generated statistical analyses can’t quantify. Those close to DePodesta say he has gotten better at listening to the people around him and actually applying their input to his decisions. That could have something to do with being blamed for much of what went wrong in 2005. It also could have something to do with what is likely to happen if this ship isn’t back on course in 2006, even though DePodesta still will have two years left on his contract. It isn’t that far, after all, from where DePodesta currently sits to where Tracy currently sits. Tracy appears to be on the verge of landing on his feet, his reward for four winning seasons in five years and winning a division title. DePodesta, who presided over that division-winning club then systematically dismantled it, would seem to have farther to fall. Tony Jackson,(818) 713-3675 tony.jackson@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Two days ago, when Paul DePodesta got the result you had to think he always wanted, the Dodgers general manager also turned up the thermostat a few degrees in his own office. He won’t have Jim Tracy to kick around anymore, so everything that happens in Dodgerland between now and the end of DePodesta’s reign will reflect directly on himself. The just-completed disaster of a 2005 season, during which the Dodgers went 71-91 and finished a distant fourth in the embarrassingly awful National League West, also reflects in the general direction of DePodesta, a fact that can’t possibly be lost on owner Frank McCourt. center_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Meanwhile, Pittsburgh general manager Dave Littlefield told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review on Tuesday that while he hasn’t yet contacted Tracy about the Pirates’ managerial vacancy, he did have a conversation with Tracy’s Houston-based agents, Alan and Randy Hendricks. Tracy is believed to be the leading candidate – and possibly the only real candidate. But Tracy getting another job will only save DePodesta about $700,000 off next year’s expenditures. Given that at least one source with knowledge of the situation said the Dodgers’ player payroll probably will dip to the $80 million range next season – and given the fact DePodesta will be hamstrung by the unwieldy contracts he gave out last winter – the prospects for the Dodgers dramatically improving themselves between now and next spring are questionable, at best. That is why Tracy was unwilling to manage the Dodgers next season without a contract extension. It also is why DePodesta might be as busy this offseason as he was last winter. On the field, the needs are simple. The Dodgers need a power-hitting first baseman, a power-hitting third baseman, a power-hitting left fielder and a power-hitting right fielder. They won’t get all four. They would prefer at least three. But just getting two would be a marked improvement, and would afford more lineup flexibility to Glenn Hoffman, Art Howe, Kevin Kennedy or whoever gets tabbed to move into Tracy’s old office. No significant money will be spent on starting pitching, where even with Jeff Weaver likely to depart through free agency DePodesta seems content with a nucleus of Derek Lowe, Brad Penny and Odalis Perez. The bullpen, assuming Eric Gagne comes back healthy and either Yhency Brazoban or Duaner Sanchez can handle the setup role, will get only minor tinkering. last_img read more
