Byu Football Fall Practice Position Preview: The Receivers | Deseret News

Key additions Junior college transfer Nick Kurtz (6-6, 205) already provided a glimpse of his potential this past spring and looks to be a heavy contributor this season. Others joining the roster include UTEP transfer Jordan Leslie (6-3, 210), who will look to make a big impact in his only season at BYU, and junior college speedster Devon Blackmon (6-1, 185). Both players have received preseason praise from coaches regarding their abilities, so noting their progress and acclimation to BYU's system will certainly happen throughout August. Stanford transfer Keanu Nelson (5-11, 184) will also work to make an impact in his only season in the program. True freshman Trey Dye (5-10, 178), the son of former BYU great James Dye, will compete at the slot position along with Nelson. Additions at tight end include towering freshmen Matt Sumsion (6-8, 220) and Colby Jorgensen (6-7, 230) along with Grant Jones (6-5, 190.) Dark horse Players such as Jordan Leslie and Devon Blackmon have received a lot of press this offseason, and perhaps justifiably so, but don't forget about Michael Davis and his intriguing skill set. Davis enters fall camp with a full year under his belt and a complete practice session competing at receiver.

The Gilmer Mirror - City Golf Championship Entries Open

23, and Sunday, Aug. 24. Those interested in playing can call Jim Hughey at (903) 241-5132 or go online at www.bgcgregg.org to fill out entries. Entry blanks are also available at the following golf courses: Pinecrest, Wood Hollow, Oak Forest, Alpine Target, Alpine, Longview Country Club, International Golf. The first round of the tournament will be held at Wood Hollow Golf Course (at 5121 McCann Road in Longview) on Saturday, with the second and final round at Pinecrest Country Club (at 214 Club Drive in Longview) on Sunday. Categories for players include Open play from which the City Champion will be named. Players over 55 will compete for the City Senior crown. In addition to several handicap-based flights, this year the City Championship will include Women's and Youth flights. The tournament committee is seeking to involve as many of the city, county, and area golfing enthusiasts as possible. Prizes and trophies are available to the winners of each contestant category. Although entries are just now available, early indication of interest again suggests a strong field. Ryan Hill, one of the state's foremost amateurs for a number of years, is expected to return. Hill, who played college golf at TCU, is an eight-time winner of the championship. The only other multiple winner of the open division is Steve Bodenheimer, another high-quality player who finished as a quarter-finalist of the British Amateur several years ago. Last year's winner, Devon Jackson, has enrolled in Texas Tech University where he will continue his golfing career. Jackson recorded a phenomenal 12-shot victory last year after rounds of 60 at Wood Hollow followed by 66 at The Challenge at Oak Forest. That type of performance is likely not to be bested soon. The five-time winner of the City Senior Championship, Coy Jones, is expected to compete again. Jones won last year with rounds of 72 and 73 at Wood Hollow and Oak Forest, respectively. Proceeds and profits from the tournament will benefit The Boys and Girls Club of Gregg County, a community-based organization that serves over 400 youth from ages 6 to 18 annually by providing a fun, safe and constructive after-school environment.

Alleged Getaway Driver Charged In Rogers Park Shooting Death « Cbs Chicago

Prosecutors said he drove the getaway car, and handed the shooter the gun used to kill Lewis, but was not the shooter. The gunman allegedly was aiming at a gang rival, but hit Lewis instead. Vaughn was denied bail at a bond hearing Monday afternoon. Defendant Vaughn told the uncharged co-defendant to wet that t-shirt up, which meant to make victim bleed, said prosecutor Alexandra Molesky Eric Vaughn (Credit: Chicago Police) A married photographer based in the Milwaukee area, Lewis had just moved to the Ravenswood neighborhood from Wisconsin last year, and then moved to Rogers Park a couple weeks ago. He was supposed to start a new full-time job on Monday at Trunk Club, a menswear fashion & style site that specializes in home delivery. His wife is an art director at the Leo Burnett marketing agency. Ald. Joe Moore (49th) was walking on the block at the time of the shooting, and saw the gunman fire repeatedly at people at the bus stop. It was surreal, and quite a shock.

Alibaba’s Behemoth Ipo Making Few Ripples In Washington - Bloomberg

The VIE is linked to the publicly-held parent via contracts rather than ownership. The arrangement, although tolerated by the Chinese government, can be considered illegal in China, the security review commissions report said. Any dispute would force shareholders to sue in Chinese courts. This puts Enron to shame, Wessel said. These could be some of the riskiest investments anyone could engage in. Alibabas proposed structure, including having a board majority appointed by its partners, kept Hong Kong (700) regulators from endorsing its listing, prompting the firm to go to the New York Stock Exchange instead.

England Defence Must Be Rebuilt For The Promising Young Attack To Succeed | Bleacher Report

Tom Peck (@tompeck) June 24, 2014 The problem for England is, who replaces them? Chris Smalling looks far off the quality needed for this level, while Phil Jones could be an aggressive leader at the backif he manages to hold down a position for his club over the coming seasons. It's a big campaign coming up for the 22-year-old, who is now past the "promising youngster" stage and into what should be the part of his career where he nails down his role in a sideif he is indeed going to fulfil the undoubted potential he carries. Steven Caulker has been vaunted as an international prospect, but he's currently a Championship defender and has two fairly good, not stupendous, Premier League seasons behind him. John Stones is another possibility who may yet progress rapidly over the coming seasons. Richard Heathcote/Getty Images Flanagan (aged 21) and Stones (aged 20) were England's standby defenders. Luke Shaw, Nathaniel Clyne, Jon Flanagan and maybe even Micah Richardsall possess the ability to fight for a place at full-back. Others will emerge as candidates too; they always do, though only one or two may make the step up over a longer period. It's not just names that England need, though, but a system.

Neville: England Management More Than Happy With Rooney | Fox Sports On Msn

Carragher suggested Sterlings pace would prove key down the flank against a Uruguay squad one defender short after Maxi Pereira was sent off late on in their defeat to Costa Rica,while hethinks Rooney will suit a role through the middle. I would put himRooney atnumber 10 [on Thursday], he added. The only reason I wouldnt have played him there against Italy was because of Pirlo I think he would have spent most of his time worrying about him rather than getting into the box and causing problems. I dont think Uruguay have that type of player in midfield theyre more protective of their back four.
