Rg Iii Hopes To Talk To Tom Brady |

But this week provides Griffin a unique opportunity to watch a future Hall of Famer up close. "If I get a chance to sit down and talk to him, I'd love to, just to pick his brain," Griffin said. "But he's also still playing quarterback in the NFL. It's a competitive position, a competitive sport. So I don't expect him to give me any groundbreaking secrets." It's not as if Griffin and Brady play the same style. <br>Source:

Goldich claims that big-money boosters and cheering alumni pressure the academies to win on the field, even if that means overlooking the conduct and aptitude of athletes. "They are so rah-rah about football that they don't care about what happens" off the field, he said. Some say standards compromised To build winning teams, the academy sometimes enrolled recruits who failed to buy into the school's values. Many of those recruits were football players in 2008 and later, after Calhoun was hired as head coach. According to its standards, the prime quality the academy is supposed to seek in all prospective cadets is the likelihood that they'll become officers. <br>Source:

With any race, once youre a day or two out youre as prepared as youre going to be so you just have to relax and try to be mentally ready on race day. Geoghegan ran at a fairly consistent pace while averaging 4:49 per mile. I went out in 4:36, which was pretty fast, and I felt like every mile was getting slower so I ended up pretty close to that 30-minute barrier but I was able to sneak under it, said Geoghegan, who will compete in indoor and outdoor track at the University of Oregon next season while pursuing a masters degree. I wasnt able to race at all this spring and started easy running again in mid-June so Im still transitioning into doing my first workouts. Ill probably be pretty sore after today. Jonny Wilson of Falmouth, a top-three Maine mens finisher in each of the previous three TD Beach to Beacons, was second in 30:26.9, followed by Henry Sterling of South Freeport (31:39.4), Robert Gomez of Portland (31:45.5) and Spencer McElwain of Bangor (31:46.4). Lilienthal is predominantly a marathon runner, having competed in the 2008 and 2012 U.S.Olympic Trials and already qualified for the same event in 2016, but she was looking forward to her second TD Beach to Beacon. <br>Source:

Clemson holds second practice

This is my 25th season of college football and I have never been around weather this cool for the first two days. It has been good in that it has added to the energy and the attention to detail by the players. At the same time, we need some hot days from a conditioning standpoint. We know they are coming. When we put the pads on in the heat it will separate some of the positions. Right now, Swinney says there are quite a few positions where you can flip a coin when it comes to playing time. <br>Source:
