Midpark Berea’s Iron Man Bryce Agnew Completes Great Season!

first_img Related TopicsBerea MidparkBryce Agnew Vince McKee Midpark Berea Tailback Bryce “The Beast” Agnew redefined the term “Iron Man” this season. The fireplug of a tailback never stopped working and was a leader on the team both in spirit, courage and rushing yards. He never said no to any assignment and was the ultimate team player.Agnew played both running back and linebacker and rarely ever sat out a snap. On offense he managed to compile an incredible 864 yards on only 137 carries in a pass happy offense. He cashed those chances in for 12 touchdowns on the ground and also earned the Week 7 NEOSI Player of the Week.The Beast was the total package on offense as he also caught 29 passes for 285 yards and 3 more touchdowns. Agnew never fumbled the ball either. Can you imagine that? Over 165 touches with zero fumbles? That my friends is reliable consistency. He replaced star running back Darius Holland as the feature back and the Titans improved upon their 2016 record with Agnew at the helm.It also must be noted, that Berea Midpark ran a lot of QB draws with Trevor Bycznski near the goal line and in a lot of other short yard scenario’s or his numbers would have been even greater. Also combine the fact that he split time with another stud in the backfield by the name of Jabriel Williams and that my friends is damn right incredible!But you don’t become the “Ironman” by only playing one side of the ball, Agnew was everywhere and involved on almost every single snap this season. On a defense that improved from last season, Agnew alongside Beau Bachie helped control the middle and keep the Titans in games late when they absolutely needed a stop.Bryce finished the season with a whopping 35 tackles, 22 of them solo and 2 interceptions. Considering the young man played almost every snap, that is remarkable!NEOSI would like to congratulate Bryce Agnew on being this seasons Iron Man.Full Photo Credit to Biz Sleibilast_img read more

Jankovic relishes chance to compete for top ranking

first_img IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5 Serena Williams stopped the 23-year-old in her tracks with a straight-sets win, propelling herself back to the top of the rankings in the process, but Jankovic says she is focused on snatching the crown back this week at Ariake Coliseum.A top-two finish would be enough for the Serbian to achieve her goal, but she knows she faces a difficult task in a tournament featuring six of the world’s top 10 players.“Nothing comes easy, so you have to really work hard for it,” she said. “Nothing falls from the sky. Whoever works the hardest and whoever wants it more will win. “Of course I want to go back to the top, and that is why I am here. “I really want to get back to the No. 1 spot and I will do my best to achieve that.”Jankovic became only the 18th woman ever to reach the top ranking in August, but she insists the brevity of her stay there did not take the shine off her achievement.“Any time you achieve No. 1, it doesn’t matter if it is for a week or for many years,” she said. “It will always stay there on your record. It is every player’s dream to be No. 1 and I am just the 18th player to achieve that, so there aren’t many in the history of women’s tennis.“It is something everyone dreams of but not everyone gets to do. I am really proud that I joined that group of legends.”Jankovic is still seeking her first Grand Slam victory after losing to Williams in New York. But rather than dwell on what might have been, the Serbian is taking positives from the experience.“Of course it is disappointing for me that I lost in the final, but at the same time when you look back I had a great two weeks, and especially because I have been struggling with a lot of injuries,” she said.“It was a great match against Serena and I had my chances, but I am looking forward to developing my game and doing my best. My time will come.“Now I want to take that extra step and win a slam. I got to a final and that will help me in the future. Now I know what to expect.”Britain’s Andy Murray could not stop raving about the raucous crowd at Flushing Meadows as he also made it through to his first Grand Slam final at the U.S. Open, and Arthur Ashe Stadium now has another confirmed fan in Jankovic.“I really love the U.S. Open,” she said. “That is the one I feel most comfortable at.”“My personality suits that tournament most because the atmosphere is electric and the crowd get really involved.“But each Grand Slam is special in its own individual way. I would love to win them all, and that is a dream of mine, but whichever one you win is special.”For the time being, however, Jankovic’s thoughts are firmly on the task at hand in Tokyo. The world No. 2 says Japan’s Tier 1 event cannot compare with the rigors of a Grand Slam, but is wary of the dangers posed by familiar rivals such as Ivanovic, Elena Demetieva and Dinara Safina.“Playing at Grand Slams you have to compete for two weeks and you have to win seven matches, and physically and mentally it wears you out,” she said. “The draw is bigger and everyone wants to be in their best shape.“Here the draw is smaller, but of course you might be playing the same players. That’s the way it goes.”And with little to choose from among the world’s top players, Jankovic is aware that success at Ariake would allow her no room for complacency. “Now there is a group of girls who are doing well and are in form,” she said. “There will be a battle until the end of the year to see who will finish as the No. 1 player in the world.” RELATED PHOTOS Spirited competitor: Serbia’s Jelena Jankovic, who is competing in the Toray Pan Pacific Open this week, says hard work and determination are keys to success for a top-ranked player.

College basketball: NSU men open season Friday at Texas A&M

first_imgCOLLEGE STATION, Texas — When the Northwestern State men’s basketball team rolls into Texas A&M on Friday for its first of two road games against Power Five teams this weekend, the Demons won’t be in unfamiliar territory.NSU, which will open its season at 8 p.m. against an Aggies squad that is receiving votes in multiple preseason polls, has played 17 games against Power Five opponents since 2012-13.The Demons knocked off Auburn in 2013-14, and seven of their 16 losses have been within 15 points. NSU lost at Texas A&M 109-68 in 2014-15 but just 78-65 in 2012-13.Friday’s game can be seen on the SEC Network or heard on KWLV 107.1 FM in Many or streamed live on Mike McConathy said winning is of course the goal, but playing well enough to be in a position to win at the end is even more important when playing against Power Five competition.“This is a big-time venue, and our kids get to line up against people they’ve heard about,” said McConathy, a former Airline star and BPCC head coach. “We have to do what we need to do in terms of consistent defense, getting back in transition, blocking out and rebounding and taking care of the ball.“In our last scrimmage, we had five turnovers. I’d love to play against the big boys and have just five turnovers, because then we have a chance to compete. We have areas that we need to get victories in.”Senior guard Zeek Woodley, a mid-major All-American this past season who is second in the nation among active scorers (1,764), said the Demons want to prove they are better than the 8-20 record.The Pelican native is one of four returning scorers to average double-figure points, leading the Demons with 22.2 points per game this past season. He is joined by senior guard Sabri Thompson (12.6), junior guard Devonte Hall (11.4) and sophomore forward Ishmael Lane (11.5).“It feels pretty good to get back on the court with a team we know is better than last year’s,” Woodley said. “We’re going to try to win (Friday), and we know they are a big team with a lot of people in the stands.“We got used to playing without (star point guard) Jalan West, because we played all year without him.”West tore his ACL in the season-opener at Ole Miss this past season and re-injured the knee this summer as the team prepared to play an exhibition tour in Canada.Thompson emerged as the team’s vocal leader without West, who is the program’s all-time assist leader and 3-point shooter.“We’re ready to go out there and test what we’ve been working on,” Thompson said. “We’re more confident because of the past trips we’ve made, and we know they have to step out on the court just like we do.“We’ve beat Auburn before, so we know it’s not impossible to knock one of these teams off. I’ll be with the second wave, which includes a lot of younger players. I’m more of a vocal guy … and we’ve got some newcomers that can really help us.”Senior Tra’von Joseph keyed a 2013-14 push in which NSU won 12 of its last 15 games before losing in the Southland Conference Tournament semifinals, and he’s healthy after battling injuries this past season.McConathy said Joseph’s energy will be needed for a team that’s had a roller-coaster preseason.“We competed a lot better last week after not competing well the week before,” said McConathy, who enters his 18th season with 267 wins at NSU. “The previous two or three weeks before that, we played as hard as we had in my history with the program.“We’ve had our bumps, bruises and injuries — we’re down three people right now. But we’ll find out where we are really quick against a quality team like Texas A&M.”The Aggies return just one starter back from a team that won a program-best 28 games and its first conference title in more than 30 years.But coach Billy Kennedy, a former Northwestern State assistant coach and former Southeastern head coach, has lifted the Aggies to a formidable force in the Southeastern Conference.Center Tyler Davis is the team’s lone returning starter with 11 points and six rebounds per game, but the Aggies have a handful of veteran reserves who will start this season.— Matt Vines, Northwestern State Sports InformationTop Expat InsuranceExpat Living in Hong Kong without Health Insurance?Top Expat Insurance|SponsoredSponsoredUndoNews gadgetThis watch takes the whole country by storm! it’s price?

“I would never play for United” – Midfielder categorically rules out…

first_imgThe German midfielder was linked with a move to Old Trafford throughout the January transfer window when it became apparent he would be leaving Juventus.Numerous reports were indicating that Manchester United were keen, although it was made clear at the time a move was unlikely because of Can.It was widely stated he wouldn’t join United due to his affiliation with Liverpool, where he spent four years and made 167 appearances before joining Juventus on a free transfer in 2018.Embed from Getty ImagesThat rumour was never confirmed as fact, but now the player has insisted it is the case, revealing it to SportBild when discussing comparisons between Bayern Munich and Manchester United.“The comparison fits,” he told the newspaper.“Both are record champions and have huge strength. In addition, big names like Bastian Schweinsteiger and Owen Hargreaves played for both clubs.“But I would never play for United because of my time in Liverpool. My heart won’t let me do that. The rivalry between the clubs is really huge.”Can now finds himself at Dortmund after a disappointing spell at Juventus, where he failed to establish himself after impressing at Anfield.He’s been a hit at the German club thus far, so much so they decided to turn his initial loan deal into a permanent one not long after his arrival.The Bundesliga side were one of several options he had on the table in January, but he says it was comparing them with Liverpool that swung it.“I sign it 100 per cent,” he added when asked if the two sides compare.“When I came to Dortmund in winter, I compared a lot of things here with Liverpool.“The clubs are really similar, have a familiar environment and unique fans.

Full Sail University enters esports partnership with 3N2 Game Gear

first_imgFull Sail University has entered a multi-year clothing partnership with Orlando-based apparel company 3N2 Game Gear for its esports organisation, Full Sail Armada Esports.Over the course of the deal, 3N2 will be the exclusive provider of jerseys, apparel, footwear, and accessories for Armada’s teams. Photo credit: 3N2In addition to custom clothing and accessories, 3N2 Game Gear will provide Full Sail University’s students with research, internship, and post-graduate employment opportunities.Sean Murphy, CEO of 3N2 Game Gear discussed the deal in a release: “With 3N2 Game Gear we were one of the first to commit and invest in custom gaming jerseys and apparel. I can’t think of a more fitting sponsorship opportunity than with a true esports pioneer like Full Sail. They are the model for what esports can be at the university level with the best venue in the country, if not the world. We couldn’t be happier.”Full Sail Armada Esports competes in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Fortnite, Hearthstone, League of Legends, Overwatch, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Rocket League, SMITE, Super Smash Bros., Madden, and Dragon Ball FighterZ. It also has The Fortress, a gaming and broadcasting venue that’s located on the university campus.Craig Daily, VP and Creative Director at Full Sail University added: “The team at 3N2 was exceptionally skilled at bringing the designs we created to life for both the Armada team and spectator jerseys. It’s an exciting time for our student esports athletes, fans and the community to rally in support of Armada. Knowing the gear is of exceptional quality, we look forward to seeing the jerseys created by 3N2 proudly worn during tournament play, on campus and across the country.”Esports Insider says: While neither Armada or 3N2 are the biggest brands in esports, it’s massively important that collegiate esports is supported to enable a wave of educated, willing talent – both in and out of the server – to work in the industry post-education. This is a cool little deal and, to us, reaffirms Full Sail’s commitment to esports.Subscribe to ESI on YouTubelast_img read more
