Wisconsin PG Traevon Jackson sits out practice

first_imgMADISON, Wis. (AP) — Senior Traevon Jackson will be honored at on Senior Day this Sunday, though the point guard’s playing status remains unclear.A team spokesman said Jackson hasn’t been cleared by medical staff, and he did not practice Friday as the No. 5 Badgers (25-3, 13-2 Big Ten) prepared for their final home game of the season against Michigan State (19-9, 10-5).The news about Jackson came five days after he told reporters he would play against the Spartans. Jackson, who sustained broke his right foot in the second half of a loss Jan. 11 at Rutgers, had surgery Jan. 16.Jackson averaged 9.4 points per game in 17 starts prior to the injury. Senior guard Josh Gasser said he doesn’t expect to see Jackson on the court against the Spartans.“Probably not, but I don’t know,” Gasser said of Jackson, who was wearing a boot during the Badgers’ 59-52 loss at Maryland on Wednesday. “That’s his business for him to talk about that. I’ll let him take care of that.”Gasser said Jackson’s return would be important, since Wisconsin has struggled with production from its bench in recent games.“Trae’s leadership and the energy he brings, defensively as well, we could definitely use as many bodies as we can,” Gasser said. “But with what we’ve got right now, we’re fine. We’ve got the pieces we need. We just have to keep producing, keep playing well, and hopefully, avoid any more losses.”Sophomore Bronson Koenig has averaged 12 points and 2.3 assists per game in 11 starts. Koenig was the first player off the bench in the early part of the season.Wisconsin will honor a four-member senior class before and after the game. The group – which helped Wisconsin reach last season’s Final Four – includes Jackson, Gasser, forward Frank Kaminsky and forward Duje Dukan.Kaminsky did not practice on Thursday and was out of town earlier on Friday, attending his grandfather’s funeral.last_img read more

Football Flashback- Campbell kicks Carter; Johnson delivers the walk off win.

first_imgShare this:FacebookTwitter The Cougars won over Carter on a last-play-of-the-game kick by a final of 24 to 21.KNOXVILLE, TN (WLAF) – “I can tell by the sound of the ball if I’ve hit the sweet spot,” said Campbell High Football kicker Thomas Johnson.  Needless to say, Number 37 hit the sweet spot Friday night breaking the deadlock and lifting his Football Cougars to a walk off win over Carter on Eblin Field at Strawberry Plains.VERY TOP PHOTO:  Cougar Thomas Johnson, Number 37, readies for the winning kick on Friday night at Carter.It was a night the Cougars needed every second the clock offered and every point had to count.  Fortunately for CCHS, five seconds and three points were enough to extinguish the barn burner of a game that became fully engulfed when Carter tied the game at 21 with 8:22 to play.The Cougars start a football season at 2 & 0 for only the sixth time in its 45 year history.  Five of those 2 & 0 starts have come during the Justin Price era now in the 9th season.Campbell was working with a short field, no time outs and precious little time when it was flagged for an illegal motion penalty at Carter’s 18-yard line with five second to go.  However, Carter declined the penalty forcing fourth down and 10, and the Cougars were going for it with 5.2 seconds reamaining.  Then Carter called a time out.  That allowed Campbell to make a change of plans.Junior kicker Thomas Johnson, playing in his second ever football game, was told earlier in the 4th quarter to get ready, because the game may come down to him.  So during the final time out of the night, “The Kicker” as he’s called by his teammates, looked at Coach Cody Seiber and said, “I can get this one (the winning field goal).”  Johnson said to himself, at the same time, “If I don’t make this, they’ll never let me kick again.”Johnson said his longest field goal ever was a 43 yarder in practice, and Friday night’s distance needed was 35 yards.  The young man, who has been playing soccer since he was three -years- old and football since May, described a kick from the right hash mark as hard, which the game winner was.  “I have to alter my technique when I kick from the right hash,” said Number 37.  Friday’s night alteration was spot on as Johnson hammered the football through the north uprights, and even though it was a 35-yarder, it looked like it could have been good from 45.  See the game winning field goal HERE at the 3:14 mark on the clip.Here’s an up close look at Johnson’s size 9 1/2 soccer cleat he wears to play football and soccer.Michael Brown is the long snapper while Devlin Dukes is the holder.  That part of the kicking battery had to do its job on Friday night, too, or Johnson’s heroics would have never happened.  “The three of us work well together, and we practice everyday before the team practice starts,” said Johnson.  This is Devlin’s first season as holder, and Johnson adds that he caught on quickly to his new found duties.Johnson said, “Michael’s snap was perfect, and Devlin caught the ball, set it on the black kicking block and spun the ball around so the laces are away from me, and I hit it.”  He added, “My first thought was just how happy I was, and I wanted to look at Coach Price (Justin) and say I did it.  It took a little bit, but I found Coach.”Even during his short time as a football player, he’s been asked lots of times “When are you going to kick a game winner?”  Guess we all know the answer to that.  (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 09/03/2019-6AM)MORE ON JOHNSONThomas Johnson wanted to play football after several of his friends on the football team encouraged him to try out.  Coach Justin Price called it a “great idea.”  However, when Thomas asked his mom, she said “no” quite quickly, according to Thomas.  “I kept pounding the idea, and mom finally agreed.  She later said that she’s proud of me, and maybe I was right (about playing football).”  She’s his biggest fan, slightly ahead of dad and big sister.For the record, Johnson’s kick was the first game winning field goal in the Cougars 45-year football history.  However, Gary Bowlin owns the record for the longest field goal which is a 39-yarder coming in a 16-12 home win over Evarts, KY at CCHS in 1983.This Thursday is his 16th birthday, and he calls the Carter win and a potential win over Oak Ridge ideal birthday gifts.  He’ll celebrate Thursday by driving his red 1999 Chevy S-10 pick up to school.

Manchester United now ‘ready to pay’ defender’s release clause, situation ‘scares’…

first_imgThe Red Devils’ need for a new centre-back has been well documented in the past, meaning the press around Europe is having a field day linking names with a move to Old Trafford.Needing both experience without spending over €100m on a defender, one of Manchester United’s best bets, and one they are apparently looking at, is Roma’s Kostas Manolas.The proud owner of a €36m release clause in his contract, the Greek centre-back looks set to leave the Italian capital in the summer, and a move to the Premier League could present itself to him.Embed from Getty ImagesAccording to Leggo’s Rome edition, both Manchester United and Juventus are said to be ‘ready to pay’ the aforementioned amount to secure his services.Roma are a bit ‘scared’ about this, but without his agreement to a renewal, which has yet to come, there’s not a lot they can do.There’s no detail about where in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s list the Greece international is, but our guess is somewhere near the top, especially since we all know Ed Woodward likes to save money if he can.Manolas might not be Kalidou Koulibaly or Virgil Van Dijk, but we doubt there will be many Manchester United fans complaining if he ended up overtaking Phil Jones/replacing Marcos Rojo in the club’s pecking order next season.He might have to fight Tahith Chong for that number 44 shirt, however.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

J. Smith, Jernigan absent from Thursday’s Ravens practice

first_imgOWINGS MILLS, Md. — Moving closer to their big Week 11 encounter with the Dallas Cowboys, the Ravens were without seven players during Thursday’s practice session.Headlining the list was No. 1 cornerback Jimmy Smith, who missed his second straight workout with a back issue. Head coach John Harbaugh downplayed the ailment on Wednesday and expressed confidence that Smith would be able to play on Sunday.Harbaugh also said that he expected Smith to practice this week, making his status for Friday’s workout worth monitoring. Assuming he is able to play, the sixth-year defensive back will likely be trusted to match up with two-time Pro Bowl receiver Dez Bryant.Defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan (shoulder) was a new absences on Thursday after not being listed on the injury report a day earlier.Running back Lorenzo Taliaferro (thigh), tight end Crockett Gillmore (thigh), and left guard Alex Lewis (ankle) were also missing from Thursday’s practice. Taliaferro was listed as a limited participant on Wednesday, making it likely that he suffered the injury during practice.The Ravens also gave linebacker Terrell Suggs and center Jeremy Zuttah the day off. Zuttah played through a mild ankle sprain in last week’s win over Cleveland while it’s no secret that Suggs is playing with a torn left biceps.For the second straight day, right guard Marshal Yanda (shoulder) and linebacker Elvis Dumervil (foot) were present and working as full participants. Dumervil wouldn’t confirm Thursday whether he would play against Dallas, but he believes he’s “really close” to being his old self from a physical standpoint after being shut down just over five weeks ago.“Just the strength [is better],” said Dumervil, who has appeared in only two games this year after undergoing offseason foot surgery. “I think last time, as a competitor, as a winner, you just want to go out [and play]. Sometimes it is good to listen, and I learned that.”Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith (back/hip) returned to practice on a limited basis after sitting out on Wednesday.Below is Thursday’s full injury report:BALTIMOREDID NOT PARTICIPATE: TE Crockett Gillmore (thigh), DT Timmy Jernigan (shoulder), G Alex Lewis (ankle), LB Terrell Suggs (non-injury), CB Jimmy Smith (back), RB Lorenzo Taliaferro (thigh), C Jeremy Zuttah (non-injury)FULL PARTICIPATION: LB Kamalei Correa (thigh), LB Elvis Dumervil (foot), LB C.J.

English Premier League Could Be Cancelled – LMA Chief

first_imgHowever, the form of competition is still a matter of debate with at least six clubs understood to be firmly opposed to the government’s directive allowing only neutral venues approved from a health and safety point of view to host games in the event of a resumption. The Premier League has been on hold since mid-March due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has killed more than 32,000 people in the United Kingdom, the highest death toll in Europe. This would require full training to begin by 18 May. “The government, if they haven’t already, will be making it clear that home matches with densely populated stadia, really puts into question whether social distancing rules can be adhered to.”RelatedEPL Boss Backs Clubs Opposed To Neutral Venues, Admits Season Could Be CancelledMay 11, 2020In “England”Coronavirus: English Premier League Suspension Extended Until At Least April 30March 19, 2020In “Africa”EPL Restates Commitment To Finish Season But No Date Fixed For RestartMay 1, 2020In “England” The 2019-20 English Premier League season could be cancelled if teams refuse to play the remaining 92 fixtures in neutral venues League Managers Association (LMA) chief executive Richard Bevan said on Wednesday.center_img All 20 Premier League clubs have stated their commitment to completing the season and resolved to resume the season “when safe and appropriate to do so” following a meeting last Friday.
