Watkins keeps eye on prize, earns start at linebacker

first_imgDEREK MONTGOMERY/Herald photoThe past year has been a tough one for LaMarr Watkins. After paying his dues for two seasons as a backup linebacker, spot starter and special-teams contributor, Watkins stood poised to become Wisconsin’s starting will linebacker last year.Unfortunately, things didn’t go according to plan for the Mt. Laurel, N.J., native. After bruising his back making a play in fall camp, Watkins endured a freak injury when he dropped a weight on his foot, breaking one of his toes in several places.“It just got the point last year where I was like, ‘I don’t even know what’s going on,’” Watkins said. “It’s just the worst luck I’ve ever had. I’ve never really been hurt [or] missed time during the season for an injury. So, to do that, hurt my back and then break my toe, it was just one thing on top of the other. It was frustrating, very frustrating.”But Watkins has rebounded, and what a rebound it has been. Opening spring camp just fighting for playing time, the senior made the most out of his chance to practice with the first team after an injury sidelined starter Dontez Sanders for the entire camp.Watkins continued his assault on a starting job this fall and made enough of an impression on the UW coaching staff to earn a spot as the starting sam linebacker to open the season.“He’s our starting sam linebacker right now,” defensive coordinator Bret Bielema said. “In the spring, when Tez was out, he did some good things, and when Tez came out in the fall, [LaMarr] really played well again, so what we decided to do is get him out on the field at the sam position. He played it early on in his career and he’s looked pretty good at it to this point so far.”The new-look linebacking corps now includes Watkins playing sam, Sanders playing will, and Mark Zalewski, last year’s starter at sam, moving over to the mike position. For the time being, sophomore Andy Crooks, who ended last season as the starting mike linebacker, is the odd man out.For now, Watkins is happy with his return to the starting lineup, though he knows he must earn the right to keep the role. But with the trials and tribulations he endured last season, don’t expect Watkins to relinquish his starting role without a fight.“The goal was always to come back and start,” Watkins said.“Last year, I think I just kind of closed myself up, and I just tried to keep focused on next year. I’ve always got next year. I just tried to stay positive for next year and everything is working out, so I’m pretty happy.”Team selects four captainsHead coach Barry Alvarez announced this year’s team captains last Friday after a vote by the players earlier that afternoon.The senior duo of center Donovan Raiola and fullback Matt Bernstein were chosen as the offensive captains, while senior cornerback Brett Bell and junior linebacker Mark Zalewski will represent the defense.Raiola, a consensus honorable-mention all-Big Ten selection last year, received attention earlier this summer when he was named to the Rimington Trophy (nation’s most outstanding center) and Lombardi Award (nation’s top lineman) watch lists.Bernstein is widely considered one of the county’s top fullbacks and was chosen as the No. 2 fullback in the nation by “Street and Smith.”A 12-game starter last year, Bell shared the team lead in interceptions (3) and pass breakups (10) with Jim Leonhard. The junior was also an all-Big Ten honorable-mention selection by the coaches.In his first season as a starter last year, Zalewski was a pleasant surprise, recording 11.5 tackles for loss and finishing fifth on the team with 55 tackles en route to an all-Big Ten honorable-mention selection by the media.Players were allowed to vote for one person, offense selecting offensive captains and defense selecting defensive captains, but also had to place their own names on the ballot.“It makes them put a little thought into it because they have ownership in that vote,” Alvarez said. “Tell me who you’re going to vote for, and let me see you put some thought into it.”Making the gradeAlvarez also revealed that six former walk-ons will be scholarship athletes this fall.Senior tight end Joel Nellis, sophomore cornerback Ben Strickland, junior safety Zach Hampton and sophomore long-snapper Steve Johnson all earned scholarships for the fall.Two other athletes — redshirt freshman Bill Rentmeester and redshirt sophomore Casey Hogan — had their scholarship promises fulfilled when they were added as scholarship athletes. During the recruiting process, Rentmeester was promised a scholarship after his first year, while Hogan was promised one after his second.last_img read more

With FSU blowout behind it, Syracuse can finally talk about making a bowl game

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on November 18, 2013 at 2:12 am TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — There are plenty of four letter words that Scott Shafer has used this season.“Damn” is one of his favorites and has been since he first declared that Syracuse would take “the damn ACC” by storm during his introductory press conference.The F-bomb was the word of the day when Shafer called a certain Atlantic Coast Conference head coach a “motherf*cker.”“Ass” isn’t four letters, but he’s had no problem using that either.But there’s been one four-letter word strictly forbidden, at least publicly, by Syracuse.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textB-O-W-L.Everything is game by game and one day at a time. There’s never anything big picture and never any win counting. But with two games to go and the Orange’s toughest game behind it, Shafer’s ready to talk.“We’ve got two games left in the Dome and that’s key,” Shafer said. “We’ve got to get this Pitt outfit in the Dome and go to war right away. It’s going to be a big game for both sides and we look forward to jumping ahead to that game as quick as possible.”So he didn’t actually piece together the four letters, but in the visiting press conference room at Doak Campbell Stadium, after a 59-3 loss to No. 2 Florida State (10-0, 8-0 ACC) of all times, he started talking about the mark his team needed to hit to qualify for a b*wl.And what better time than now? SU (5-5, 3-3) never stood a chance against the Seminoles, but now it gets two winnable games at home against Pittsburgh and Boston College. The winner of Saturday’s game with the Panthers qualifies for the postseason, and the Eagles have already reached the necessary six wins.Syracuse needed to win one of its last three, but it was always actually just one of its last two. So now it’s time to talk.“You have two games left to get one,” SU quarterback Terrel Hunt said.Wasn’t this always what it was going to come down to?The Orange was never going to cruise to eight or nine wins and it was never going to stumble to eight or nine losses. FSU was an obvious loss. There was no point talking about a bowl when it wasn’t going to happen for another week or two, anyway.And shouldn’t SU be able to get this done?The loss to Florida State was ugly. That can’t be denied. Normally a loss by 56 points is a reason for plenty of four-letter words. Instead it was just the one.Jerome Smith darted from the SU locker room to the team bus in an unusually hurried manner. He played his worst game of the season during the beating, but in the locker room he had the future in mind.“The first thing he said was, ‘Hey, Our goal is still in front of us,’” running backs coach DeAndre Smith said. “So I suspect he’ll come back and have the best two weeks of his career.”The Seminoles were simply way better. From the moment that Chief Osceola rode his horse Renegade onto Bobby Bowden Field before the game, that much was clear.So let’s listen to Hunt and “flush this one down the toilet.” Syracuse is already doing that.There’s a long way to go for the Orange to contend at the highest level in the ACC — that’s the biggest thing Shafer took away from Saturday’s loss — but you don’t need to be a powerhouse winning 10 games to qualify for the postseason. Six wins are fine.Hunt brought a sense of realism to the press conference room after the loss. FSU was a chance to see where the highest bar is set. Now it’s about getting the victories against the even foes. Then maybe they can actually say that elusive four-letter word.“We want to be 2-0 in the next ones,” Hunt said.David Wilson is the sports editor at The Daily Orange, where his column appears occasionally.

Essien to feature on FIFA 20 ICONS list despite still playing in Azerbaijan

first_imgThe 36-year-old joined Sabail FK on a one-and-a-half-year contract and is also a player-coach with the Azerbaijan club.He is also the coach of Sabail’s U19 team.Essien played just four games for Sabail in the 2018/19 season, starting just once. Ex-Black Stars player, Michael Essien will feature as one of the many icons in the FIFA 20 game which will be released on September 24, 2019.The list of ICONS for this year’s version of FIFA goes on and on with the likes of Zidane, Pele, Maradona, Didier Drogba, Ian Rush, John Banes among others.The former Chelsea midfielder was an important player during his nine years at the club and scored some rather famous goals.That swerving long-range shot against Arsenal and his dipping volley versus Barcelona in the Champions League will never be forgotten by Chelsea fans.However, Essien’s inclusion on the ICONS list is interesting because he is still an active player who plays in Azerbaijan, unlike most of them on the list who have retired from the game.last_img read more

Lakers’ LeBron James makes All-NBA third team

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error The last time James did not make the All-NBA first team was in 2007, one of his two NBA second-team berths.Jumping ahead of James as forwards on the second team were Golden State’s Kevin Durant and Toronto’s Kawhi Leonard, joining Philadelphia’s Joel Embiid, Portland’s Damian Lillard and Boston’s Kyrie Irving. James was joined on the third team by Oklahoma City’s Russell Westbrook, Detroit’s Blake Griffin, Utah’s Rudy Gobert and Charlotte’s Kemba Walker.The Lakers are one of the teams with salary cap space this summer in the hunt for fortune-changing talent. Durant, Leonard, Irving and Walker are all expected to be unrestricted free agents this summer, presuming Durant and Irving opt out of the final year on their existing contracts.

Golden State’s Steph Curry, Oklahoma City’s Paul George and Denver’s Nikola Jokic rounded out the top five.When he played, James lived up to his reputation: He averaged 27.4 points, 8.5 rebounds and 8.3 assists to lead the Lakers in all three categories. He averaged the most minutes per game of anyone on the team (35.2) and got to the free-throw line (7.6 FTA) more than anyone else.And yet his ability to stay on the court was hampered by the most severe injury of his career: a groin strain suffered in a Christmas Day win over the Warriors that kept him out for 17 consecutive games, during which the Lakers fell from among the top teams in the Western Conference to struggling amid a pack of postseason hopefuls. Even James’ return in late January couldn’t boost the team, rankled by trade rumors and chemistry issues, back into the playoffs.James ended up playing only 55 games, and the Lakers’ front office decided to shut him down early with six games remaining.Related Articles Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers The three-time champion in Miami and Cleveland is still regarded as one of the league’s best players: He was voted one of the captains in February’s All-Star Game by fans, alongside Antetokounmpo. This season saw James bypass several NBA greats to move into fourth place on the all-time scoring list, most notably Wilt Chamberlain and Michael Jordan.

It’s the only time James has been a third-teamer, breaking a streak of 11 consecutive first-team appearances, but given that he played just 55 games for the 37-45 Lakers, it’s a sign of the esteem for the four-time league MVP that he drew a spot as one of the game’s 15 best.Of 100 voters, 85 placed James on their ballot, with 73 placing him on the third team. James received no first-team votes. It’s the first time the Lakers, star-laden for much of the franchise’s history, have had an All-NBA honoree since 2013 when Dwight Howard and Kobe Bryant both made the cut.last_img read more
