The boys fought hard for the entire game we just came up short,” Wilmoth said. “We just needed that one big play and we just did not get it.”The Knights would trade the ball back and forth with the Rockets all the way into late of the third quarter.The Rocket quarterback would race around the corner for a 20 yard score giving the Rockets the lead 6 -0.“We had a guy there to make the tackle but he got blocked at the last second by the wideout,” Wilmoth said. “From my view it was clearly a block in the back but the White hat must have been watching another key area because he did not throw a flag.”The Knights would stop the Rockets on the two point try.Once again the Knights and Rockets would trade the ball back and forth.  It finally looked like the Knights where putting a drive together and marching their way into the end zone but a very odd fumble play would ruin the drive at the Rockets 20 yard line.“Not sure how an official can blow a play dead,” Wilmoth said. “Our ball carrier stops and lets go of the ball but than allows the opposing team to jump on the ball and then rewards Rose Hill with it. “If anything it’s an invertant whistle which you replay the down.”Wilmoth said Wellington had its chances and can’t blame anybody but themselves for not putting points on the board.“Kids did play with a bunch of heart and I just wish we could have had one or two big plays,” Wilmoth said. “We will come back together on Monday clean up a few things and get ready for Circle next Thursday.”The Knights will travel to Circle next week to try and get back into their winning ways.8th grade highlighted stats are as follow:OffenseJones had 124 yards on 25 carries.Walton had 18 yards on 5 carries.DefenseJones four solo and two assist tackles and two fumble recoveriesGroom two solo two assist tackles and a fumble recoveryMraz two solo and two assist tacklesSchoemann had three solo and one assist.

Week 17 Fantasy TE Rankings: Tyler Higbee, Austin Hooper’s matchups make great ‘starts’

first_imgLeave it to the Week 17 fantasy TE rankings to still be boring. It’s been the least volatile position all season, and those fantasy football owners who play in the NFL’s final regular season week are not catching any sort of excitement here. By this point, there’s almost no chance you’ve made your final without a solid TE, so odds are you won’t be looking to the waiver wire to stream anyone in this final week.The biggest late-season revelation at the position remains Tyler Higbee. He’s topped 100 yards in four-straight weeks, surely carrying you all the way to your title game. And it gets even better — he takes on the Cardinals in Week 17. That’s a dream matchup for Higbee, a player not many would’ve expected to win them fantasy championships but who now has a chance to. Note: These rankings will be updated throughout the week, so check back for the latest.WEEK 17 DFS:DK Cash | DK GPP | Y!

The matchup for Zach Ertz against the Giants is also one worth looking forward to after Dwayne Haskins threw all over New York in Week 16.If you’ve gotten this far and need a stream, there’s no need to fear — the top target should be Dallas Goedert for the Eagles against the Giants. He had a huge Week 16 game, and with all the Philly WR injuries, Goedert is one of Carson Wentz’s top targets. You could also target the athletic Jonnu Smith for Tennessee since the Titans have chosen to finally involve him enough to make him fantasy relevant. Other options include Noah Fant (vs. Raiders) and Kaden Smith (vs. Eagles), with Smith being a two-TD hero in Week 16.WEEK 17 PPR RANKINGS:Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endOne thing to look out for, as well: Mark Andrews could sit out Week 17. The Ravens have clinched the AFC’s top seed and could choose to rest their studs. If Andrews sits, target one of the streams mentioned above (or Hayden Hurst in that case, who would be the biggest beneficiary of an Andrews absence).(Update: Be on the lookout for Zach Ertz’s status, as well, as he may be a true game-time decision Sunday. Dallas Goedert would be a strong TE1 if Ertz sits against the Giants.)MORE: Which players are sitting out Week 17?last_img read more

Christian McCaffrey talks Panthers’ future with Matt Rhule, Joe Brady and Cam Newton

first_imgMcCaffrey led the NFL with 2,392 all-purpose yards in 2018, and he joined Roger Craig (1985) and Marshall Faulk (1999) as just the third player to total at least 1,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards in the same season. The Panthers, however, are 23-25 in that stretch, and they replaced Ron Rivera, who was fired in early December, with Baylor coach Matt Rhule this offseason.  Semper Fi SgtMaj Luis Leiva at Camp Lejeune! Thank you for nearly 30 years of service to our country and being part of the best defensive team I’ve ever seen. Proud to present 2 tix to #SBLIV on behalf of @USAA & @MCA_Marines. #SaluteToService pic.twitter.com/so8jqkAb0R— Christian McCaffrey (@CMC_22) January 22, 2020MORE: Super Bowl picks, predictions from SN’s expertsMcCaffrey said his offseason strength coaches and Baylor players reached out to him after the hire. McCaffrey watched Rhule’s press conference, and it confirmed those reports.  “He said everything anyone wanted to hear,” McCaffrey told Sporting News. “His past and his resume speaks for itself. He took two 1-11 teams and turned them into 10-win seasons at schools where, we’ll call it for what it is, difficult to do at the time, especially with Baylor with what was going on there. I’m excited to have him on board.” McCaffrey shared the same sentiment with new offensive coordinator Joe Brady, the former Saints passing game coordinator who helped renovate LSU’s offense in 2019. The Tigers won the College Football Playoff championship game in a 42-25 victory against Clemson, and McCaffrey is excited about working within that scheme.  “There is the pro-style offense, there is the spread offense and there are coaches who bring out the best in their players,” McCaffrey said. “I think Coach Brady has a great ability to do that, and you saw that with this year’s team.  “He uses his players and puts them into position to succeed,” McCaffrey said. “For whatever reason, that’s harder than it sounds. He’s going to know how to use us in the best way possible. That’s what I’m most excited about.” The only other question concerns the team’s quarterback situation. Former No. 1 pick Cam Newton played in just two games last season and has battled foot and shoulder injuries over the past three seasons. Newton will be an unrestricted free agent in 2021.  “As of now, Cam is on our team,” McCaffrey said. “For me, that’s my guy. I’ve been fortunate enough to play with him for three years. Unfortunately, he’s had to deal with some injuries. When Cam is healthy and at his best, he’s an unbelievably fun guy to play with.” McCaffrey believes that structure and a newfound approach will help the Panthers in the long term.   “You look at the San Francisco 49ers, a couple years ago they were among the worst teams for three years in a row,” McCaffrey said. “They’re playing for a Super Bowl now. It’s having trust in the plan and confidence in the leadership of the team. If you have that, then good things are going to happen.” McCaffrey teamed up with USAA and MCA&F to award a Super Bowl trip to Sgt. Maj. Luis “Chino” Leiva and a guest. Leiva joined the U.S. Marine Corps in 1990 and has been deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan during his time in the military. McCaffrey will meet Leiva and other military members in USAA’s Salute to Service Loung on Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 in Miami.  “It’s a very small thing to do, but it’s something hopefully in the future we can do more for not just one but more people,” McCaffrey said. “I get to meet veterans and active-duty members. Being able to pick their brains and see where their head is at and translate it to what I do is something very fun for me.” Christian McCaffrey is coming off the best season of his career, and he believes the changes in Carolina will lead to even more success in 2020 and beyond.  McCaffrey, who partnered with USAA and the Marine Corps Association and Foundation (MCA&F) to give an active military member two Super Bowl tickets on Jan. 22, will have a new coach in Matt Rhule and a new offensive coordinator in Joe Brady. McCaffrey is hoping that leads to improved results if quarterback Cam Newton returns in 2020.  last_img read more

Chris Kreider injury update: Rangers winger suffers fractured foot

first_imgThe New York Rangers endured a rude awakening Friday night in Philadelphia.After winning nine of their previous 10 games, their momentum finally ended as they lost 5-2 to the Flyers. To make matters worse, Chris Kreider suffered a serious injury.  The forward went down midway through the first period after blocking a shot by Philadelphia’s Philippe Myers. Kreider headed straight for the bench and the Rangers quickly announced on Twitter that he fractured his foot and wouldn’t return to the game. The Rangers have announced that Chris Kreider sustained a fractured foot – here’s where he blocked Philippe Myers in the first period, and left the game shortly after #NYR pic.twitter.com/titkzQVXQ2— Shayna (@hayyyshayyy) February 29, 2020Rangers coach David Quinn said after the game that there was no timetable for Kreider’s return. Depending on the severity of the fracture, he could be sidelined anywhere from several weeks to several months. Morgan Rielly of the Toronto Maple Leafs recently suffered a similar injury, also while blocking a shot, and was ruled out for at least eight weeks. Smaller fractures can have recovery periods of two to four weeks, however. The injury is a tough blow for Kreider, who was widely rumored to be leaving New York before the trade deadline on Monday but instead ended up signing a seven-year, $45 million contract extension that will keep him with the Rangers for the foreseeable future. Kreider has spent his entire career with the team since being drafted in 2009. It’s also a big setback for the Rangers, who have fought their way into the playoff picture after a rocky start to the season. They sit two points behind the Columbus Blue Jackets for the final Eastern Conference wild-card spot with just over a month remaining in the regular season, and now they’ll be without one of their top offensive players. Kreider, 28, has put up 45 points (24 goals, 21 assists) in 63 games this year.last_img read more

Rob Gronkowski’s weight is not (and never was) a problem in return to NFL

first_imgBuccaneers players are still not allowed to work out at the team facility, but Brady on Tuesday spearheaded a private workout with Bucs quarterbacks, receivers and tight ends at a Tampa-area prep school. Gronkowski was not one of the players mentioned by the Tampa Bay Times as an attendee of the session.As for “when it’s time to roll” for Gronkowski and his new team, the NFL still hopes to begin its season on time in early September despite coronavirus-related obstacles. Likewise, the league hopes training camps can start on time in mid-July.Regardless, Gronk should have plenty of time to drink those four protein shakes and reach his desired playing weight. Rob Gronkowski is “​basically four more protein shakes away” from returning to his playing weight. Because of course he is.The 31-year-old tight end who spent last season in retirement needed just one month to reach almost 260 pounds after dropping to 240 pounds, proving the weight he lost during his one year of retirement had no impact on whether he could return to the field. “I’m about 257 pounds right now,” Gronkowski, who will join former Patriots teammate Tom Brady with the Buccaneers in 2020, told CBS Sports on Wednesday. “I’ll definitely be at my weight when it’s time to go. I’ll be at 260 to 265 when it’s time to roll.”IYER: Grading the Gronk trade for Patriots, BuccaneersGronkowski, whom New England traded to Tampa Bay in April along with a seventh-round pick in exchange for a fourth-round pick, did not explain in the clip shared by CBS how he lost 20 pounds or how he has gained it back. He did say “it felt good” to get down to 240 pounds.“I’ve been above 260 pounds basically my whole entire life since high school. Since senior year in high school, I was 260,” Gronk said. “I had never been under 260 since then. So it felt good just to drop that weight, ease up my joints, let my body free.”last_img read more
