USC’s Ward impressed with Clemson QB Watson

first_imgCLEMSON – South Carolina defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward came away from the Gamecocks 35-17 loss to Clemson impressed with Tigers quarterback Deshaun Watson.“Deshaun Watson is a great kid,” said Ward. “Obviously, he is going to be a great player. For him to come back and play in and out of the ballgame – obviously he was hurt. But I’m sure his team got a lot of confidence from him when he was out there. He played well.“We felt like, after seeing him early in the game, he wasn’t going to run with the football. He ran out one time in the first time on the goal line in a scramble play, but I knew they weren’t going to quarterback run with him. He’s a good football player, a real good football player.”•Ward knew Clemson was going to attempt to exploit the edges against his defense. Although the team prepared for it, it was unable to slow the Tigers down.“They do a great job of trying to take advantage of you scheme-wise,” said Ward. “The team traditionally moves the ball methodically down the field.“They thrive on big plays. That was one of the things we talked about all week, try not to give them the big pass play or the long run. Obviously, they got the long runs.”•USC suffered several injuries in the game. Tight end Rory Anderson suffered an elbow strain in the first quarter, but returned to action.Defensive tackle J.T. Surratt suffered an elbow injury in the second quarter, but returned to action.Tailback Brandon Wilds suffered a thigh bruise in the first quarter and did not return.•USC sophomore wide receiver Pharoh Cooper missed most of the Gamecocks pre-Clemson week practice with a rib injury.Although he says it did not hamper him for most of the game, he suffered a relapse in the fourth quarter.“Right now, I’m not feeling too good,” Cooper said following the game. “I already had a rib injury coming into the game. When the game started I felt fine. It got to the fourth quarter, I ran a route and it popped out of place.“That was with about eight minutes to play. I was pretty much done after that.”Cooper did not get as many touches as he would in a normal game, but still managed to make an impact.He scored the first touchdown of the game on a 20-yard run out of the ‘Wildcat’ set with 3:41 remaining in the first quarter to give the Gamecocks a 7-0 lead.He finished with two carries for 18 yards, completed two of two passes for 27 yards and caught two passes for 45 yards with the longest going for 46.•South Carolina junior running back Mike Davis bid for a second straight 1,000-yard rushing season fell short in Death Valley.Davis finished with 39 yards on 12 carries, which gives him 927 yards for the season. He could still top the 1,000-yard mark if the Gamecocks play in a bowl game.He has 2,385 career rushing yards and is expected to forgo his senior season in order to enter the 2015 National Football League Draft.•Sophomore linebacker Skai Moore led the Gamecocks in tackles with 10, the third time this season had has finished in double digits in stops.He also picked up his third interception of the season and third in two weeks. He has seven career interceptions.•Senior guard A.J. Cann made his 50th career start, the second most in South Carolina history.•South Carolina placekicker Elliott Fry’s 47-yard field goal tied his career long. It give him 99 points on the season, tying his total as a freshman.

More tests needed in death of Syracuse sprinter at NYC hotel

first_imgSabrina Cammock (Facebook Photo)NEW YORK (AP) — More tests are needed to determine the cause of death of a Syracuse University sprinter found in a Times Square hotel room during spring break, medical examiners said Sunday.Sabrina Cammock’s autopsy was conducted Sunday, but the results were awaiting further studies, medical examiners’ spokeswoman Julie Bolcer said.Police say there were no signs of criminality when Cammock was found at around 9:20 a.m. Saturday at the Hotel Edison. The hotel declined to comment on the death, first reported Saturday by the Daily News.Specializing in sprinting, Cammock competed as recently as the previous weekend, when she was on the women’s 4×400 relay team at the 2015 ACC Indoor Championships at Virginia Tech, according to Syracuse’s sports website.“Sabrina was a wonderful and remarkable person and student-athlete,” Syracuse track and field coach Chris Fox said in a statement Saturday. “Our team and coaching staff are devastated by her loss.”Cammock, a senior, was studying public health at Syracuse’s David B. Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics, Dean of Student Affairs Rebecca Reed Kantrowitz said in a statement. The university is on spring break.Cammock had recently done an internship involving medical quality assurance in an oncology unit, giving a presentation about the subject as part of an internship symposium at her school in December.A member of a school record-setting 4×100-meter relay team, Cammock won a Syracuse scholar-athlete of the week award last April. She also was named to the 2012-13 Big East conference All-Academic Team.As a high-school student, Cammock ran for The Mary Louis Academy, a Catholic girls’ school near her home in the Jamaica Estates section of Queens.“She’s better than anybody you know,” her cousin Kemal Brown told the Daily News. “She’s a baby, and she’s gone.”last_img read more

Home cooking can’t power Wildcats past Immaculata at KVC

first_imgBy Bruce Fuhr, The Nelson DailyThe weekend saw the Mount Sentinel Wildcats move up the competitive ladder, just not enough to capture the overall title at the Kootenay Volleyball Classic Saturday in South Slocan.Immaculata defeated the host Cats 2-1 (25-16, 23-25, 15-8) to claim the overall High School Girl’s Volleyball tournament at the Mount Sentinel gymnasium.“(This) was a good weekend for us,” said Sentinel coach Joe Moreira. “We had important contributions from a number of players who are beginning to play with more confidence.” “In particular Laura Soukeroff and Chelsie Van Brynen (both Grade 12s) who had limited roles last year but are now feeling more comfortable on the floor and are recognizing that as Grade 12s this is their time to take charge,” Moreira added.Immaculata finished on top of the table following round robin play and easily disposed of J. Lloyd Crowe Hawks of Trail 2-0 in one semi final.Meanwhile Mount Sentinel took second after pool play. The Cats defeated Kootenay rival Selkirk Storm of Kimberley during the round robin, then knocked off the Bavarian City squad in the other semi final, this time 15-13 in the third game of the match.“We had three important victories,” Moreira explained. “We beat Selkirk twice, both very close and in three sets, and also beat Fernie. Both teams are solid and athletic and we need to beat them both to advance to provincials.”Fernie finished fifth in the tournament followed by A.L. Fortune of Enderby and Osoyoos.Mount Sentinel has little time to relax as the team travels to Kelowna to compete in the UBC/O High School Volleyball tournament.“We sill have lots of work ahead of us to compete with the really good teams in the province,” Moreira explained. “At the moment “slow and steady” is a good pace for us (because) without Grade 11’s on the team we must rely on our Grade 10’s to play beyond their level of maturity.”RALLY POINT: Immaculata, currently second in the B.C. High School A Girl’s Volleyball rankings, may jump into the number one slot. Selkirk will most likely drop down the table from seventh to ninth while the Wildcats of Mount Sentinel could move into eighth [email protected]comlast_img read more

Wire to wire win at Western Canadians for Julien Locke — brother Peter fifth

first_imgBy Bruce FuhrThe Nelson Daily SportsJulien Locke led from wire to wire to claim the top prize at the Western Canadian Championships Sunday at the Nordic Ski Trails near Kelowna.The 17-year-old Nelsonite, a member of Rossland’s Black Jack Ski club, finished first overall following the three-stage race.“I had a good race,” said Locke, competing against twin brother Peter.“I started with the lead and was able to put more time on the others, posting the fastest individual time by 10 seconds,” Locke added. “Colin Ferrie from Kimberley (who started and finished second) and I were practically even the entire way — the closest he ever got was 35 seconds behind. “I came into the stadium with a 50 second lead over second.”The Western competition was a “tour” race. The first stage Friday was a skate sprint. Saturday was prologue race, a 3.5-kilometer classic individual start where the skier sprints for the duration of the race.Sunday was a 15-kilometer pursuit where racers are seeded according to times and bonus seconds from the first two days of racing. The whole idea of tour races has been around for a long time in other sports but it’s quite new to cross country skiing.Locke won the Friday sprint skate qualifier by two seconds and the heat final by a wide margin.Brother Peter struggled in the qualifier placing 24th and 15th in the heat and did not advance.“Peter had bad seeding because of his poor qualifier and got stuck in a tough quarter final where he finished third in his heat and did not move on,” Julien explained.Julien Locke increased his lead after the 3.5km Classic Prologue by overcoming tricky slippery and icy conditions.Julien started 15 seconds behind Peter but managed to catch up after one kilometer.The pair skied together until the finish, catching the leader with all three entering the stadium together.Julien cruised to the title with a 15 second margin over Peter Locke, who finished second, and a 25 second margin over the third place skier.Sunday, Julien kept up his dominance on the field to capture the overall title. Brother Peter was able to climb the leader board to finish fifth.Younger sister Robyn Locke, battling the flu all weekend, did not have a good race, as fatigue was too much to overcome.The skiers head back to the training trails in preparation for the Canadian Nordic Ski Championships March 12-19 in Canmore, [email protected]last_img read more
