USC focuses on run and pass games in spring practice

Posted on by

first_imgThe USC football team returned from spring break Tuesday, resuming camp with its fourth practice. The lead-up to the April 14 spring game continues as the team looks to fill vacancies left by departing players. Redshirt sophomore quarterback Matt Fink (left) and redshirt freshman Jack Sears (right) are competing for the starting quarterback spot this fall. Sunny Dong | Daily TrojanInjury UpdatesSophomore tailback Stephen Carr remains out as he recovers from back surgery. He’s been ruled out for the entirety of spring practice. Senior Porter Gustin, who missed a majority of last season due to a toe injury, looked fully up to speed today. His burst and power looked just as strong as ever in bag drills and in the run defense segment of practice.QB CompetitionAlthough the Trojans still await the arrival of incoming five-star freshman JT Daniels, the battle to fill the void left by departing quarterback Sam Darnold continues. Redshirt freshman Jack Sears and redshirt sophomore Holden Thomas both looked solid, but redshirt sophomore Matt Fink still looks to be ahead of the pack as of now. Fink was sharp throughout the day, at one point completing three consecutive perfect post corner routes. He continued to display good decision making and accuracy throughout practice, not throwing a single pick and impressing in the team redzone portion of practice, where he used his trademark speed for a rushing touchdown while passing for two more. Although things may soon change upon Daniels’ arrival, Fink looks like the man to beat right now.StandoutsThe top two returning Trojan receivers both put on a show today, as redshirt sophomore Tyler Vaughns and junior Michael Pittman looked dominant throughout the day. Pittman caught nearly everything thrown his way, winning with speed on go routes and with his massive frame on crossing routes and hitches. His most impressive reception of the day came during team drills when he came back to an underthrown ball on a deep route, securing the grab as he hit the ground. Vaughns exhibited incredible route running and body control, as he caught pass after pass along the sideline, including a ridiculous grab in which he contorted his body 180 degrees through a defender to snag the football. Vaughns and senior cornerback Isaiah Langley got chippy with one another after executing a few routes together, exchanging verbal jabs and a few shoves as well. When asked about the interaction afterwards, Vaughns brushed it off, saying, “Yeah, that’s normal. Out of anger you’re gonna say stuff like that, but we’re still family, still teammates, so none of that stuff matters off the field.”State of the Running GameWith the departure of star running back Ronald Jones II to the NFL, there are big shoes to be filled in the backfield. Carr looked explosive when he was on the field last year, but his absence for the spring leaves the starting tailback job wide open. Redshirt sophomore Vavae Malepeai impressed with his carries, providing a lot of powerful running to the backfield, while senior Aca’Cedric Ware also took a significant number of touches at running back. Redshirt junior Dominic Davis also joined the rotation, switching back to his original position after a stint as cornerback. The unit believes new running backs coach Tim Drevno has made a positive impact so far. “[Drevino] knows what he’s talking about all around,” Malepeai said. “He does a good job of making sure we understand how the entire play works and not just our assignments.”last_img read more

Gruzah: Government should intervene on behalf of Dede Ayew

Posted on by

first_imgRenowned Football administrator and owner of Ghana Premier League side King Fiasal, Alhaji Karim Gruzah is calling on the government of Ghana to intervene on the exclusion of midfielder Andre Dede Ayew from the Black Stars squad ahead of AFCON 2013 in South Africa.Dede Ayew was excluded following his inability to join the Black Stars squad by Monday morning in Abu Dhabi for Ghana’s team doctors to assess the extent of his injury and fitness for the tournament.All the players were given the deadline of Saturday to report to camp in Abu Dhabi but unfortunately Andre did not turn up despite being released by his club and air tickets provided by the GFA for him to travel from France to beat the deadline.“It is not late to include Dede in the team because the boy has been loyal to the team and if the boy is not sick he will willingly come to camp. This is the first time this thing is happening to him. This has happened in so many countries and so I think the government must interfere. Football without interference is no football,” he told JOY Sports.The Black Stars are currently training in the Gulf region for 11 days before departing to South Africa for the tournament which starts from January 19 to February 10.Meanwhile ,Ghana’s final 23-man squad for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations will be announced on Wednesday at 17:00 GMT.last_img read more

ELECTION 2014: COPE RAISES ALARM OVER THREAT TO LETTERKENNY MATERNITY SERVICES

Posted on by

first_imgFianna Fáil MEP Pat the Cope Gallagher has raised alarm over the fresh threat to maternity services in the West/North West region. Pat the Cope GallagherA confidential HSE report seen by Fianna Fáil threatens the closure of up to four obstetric units in the region – Sligo General, Letterkenny General, Portiuncula and Mayo General.MEP Gallagher said, “This report confirms that the HSE and Minister for Health James Reilly are strongly considering a dramatic reduction of maternity services right across the West and North West. “All the scenarios under consideration would result in the closure of at least some obstetrician-led units in this region.“This could include dramatically downgrading the maternity units at our regional hospitals to midwife-only units, or indeed closing some units altogether.Gallagher believes the result would be a centralisation of maternity services at just two hospitals across the West and North West.In a vast geographical area, the removal of any maternity units will have a severe impact on expectant mothers. Many would be expected to travel for hours for just a regular check-up with an obstetrician.While the value of midwives in antenatal and postnatal care cannot be overestimated, in the case of emergencies it is essential that all expectant mothers have quick and easy access to a consultant.Gallagher added, “This news is causing great distress among many parents across the region.“It’s essential that the Minister for Health James Reilly steps in immediately to clarify what his plans are in relation to the future of maternity services in this region.According to Gallagher, it looks like the Government is sitting on this report until after the local and European elections. Gallagher concluded, “It is simply not good enough to play politics with such a vital front-line health service that affects hundreds of thousands of people across this region.“We need clarity from the Government now. Any attempt to strip maternity services from our regional hospitals in the West and North West must be resisted.ELECTION 2014: COPE RAISES ALARM OVER THREAT TO LETTERKENNY MATERNITY SERVICES was last modified: May 14th, 2014 by StephenShare 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:Election 2014: MEPMaternity ServicesnewsNorth westPat The Cope GallagherPoliticslast_img read more

Oklahoma State Honoring Members Of Basketball Program Who Died In Plane Crash 14 Years Ago Today

Posted on by

first_imgOklahoma State honors 2001 plane crash victims.On January 27th, 2001, the Oklahoma State basketball program suffered an unthinkable tragedy when eight members of its family (two players and six staffers and broadcasters) died in a plane crash while returning from a game in Colorado. In the years since that traumatic event, the 10 people who died in the crash –including the pilot and co-pilot–have been memorialized with a banner hanging in the rafters of OSU’s home court, Gallagher-Iba Arena, and a memorial located inside the Athletics Center. Also, each year, at the home game closest to the date of the crash, Oklahoma State honors the 10. This post from the Cowboys’ official athletics Instagram account has all the details on the ceremony before tonight’s game against Baylor: Very touching and appropriate tribute for those whose lives were inexplicably cut short, and it’s incredible to think 14 years has passed since this tragedy happened.last_img read more
