Senior WR Flemming will return for 5th season

first_img Published on February 5, 2014 at 5:11 pm Contact David: | @DBWilson2 During his national signing day press conference Wednesday, Scott Shafer took a moment to field a question about a senior wide receiver.The Syracuse head coach confirmed that Adrian Flemming, who suffered a season-ending lower-body injury during SU’s season opener against Penn State last year, will use 2013 as a redshirt season and return for the 2014 campaign.“Flem’s coming back,” Shafer said. “He looks good. He’s running around. He’s excited.”A 6-foot-3, 200-pound wideout from Ashburn, Va., Flemming started the first game of his career against the Nittany Lions and hauled in two receptions for 18 yards. He was one of the Orange’s most targeted receivers during that game, but after the game it was announced that he would require surgery.Flemming also played in 12 games as a sophomore and five as a junior, primarily on special teams.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHe will return to a wide receiver corps with much more depth than he left it. Brisly Estime, Jeremiah Kobena and Alvin Cornelius all made starts during the season and became viable options for SU, and all three are returning.Syracuse also added four-star wide receiver K.J. Williams in this year’s recruiting class, as well as three-star wideouts Steve Ishmael and Corey Cooper — who is already on campus — and tight ends Jamal Custis and  Adly Enoicy.Flemming, though, will still be part of the equation.“His body’s in great shape,” Shafer said. “His legs are looking good — he says he’s got the bounce back into his legs — and we’re excited to get him back out there, too.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

‘Can we get Pochettino?’ – Ghanaians react to exit of Black Stars boss Kwesi Appiah

first_imgBring back the love….with Pochettino?Former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino might be sought after by Europes biggest clubs but why settle for the easy choice when he could take up a real challenge? ‘Our bet slips are free again’Betting on the Black Stars does take some courage, imagine the number of slips you’ll need to give up in order to almost win something?You figa sey you go dey spoil wanna bet like that … ever since Kwesi Appiah come I no win Bet for Black Stars e back before ….abeg leave na we taya 😑😑— Kofi GOAT 🔥 (@_kofigaza) January 2, 2020The mother of all coachesWith this resumé, it’s surprising he’s still begging for a job…New job opportunity for Kwesi?Fetching the ball doesn’t usually require too many tactics, and this tweeter feels Kwesi Appiah might have missed his calling the first time.Prophet 2020?You usually get one prophecy on the 31st. I bet betters will feel it’s a bit of a waste to use it on this reallyLoyal to the endThere’s always one person who isn’t swayed and remains loyal to the end Kwesi Appiah is no longer the coach of the Black Stars.Ghanaians who were still getting accustomed to being in 2020 certainly did not expect this to be the most used line on social media on Thursday evening.However, following the dissolution of all the technical teams of the national football sides, and despite the fact that a number of other coaches are now without jobs, Appiah’s exit is the most telling.At least, that’s what’s getting the most traction on social media – ‘Kwesi Appiah’ and ‘Black Stars’ are currently two terms in the top five trends on Twitter in Ghana.Despite taking charge of the Black Stars two opening games in their AFCON 2021 qualifying campaign in November, Appiah’s continued stay as head coach of the men’s senior national team had become the subject of much debate.His contract expired in December 2019, but speculation was rife that he had been offered a new contract by the GFA.This earned the ire of some sections of the public who felt that given Ghana’s dismal showing at the AFCON 2019 tournament in Egypt, perhaps a change in management was needed.And from the reaction to his departure on social media, it’s clear this school of thought was one shared by not just a vocal minority.While a few people were just glad to be rid of Appiah, some are already looking to the future.Musical ChairsOne Twitter user is hoping for a bit of a switcheroo in the Black Stars, culminating in fan favourite Michael Essien taking up the top job.Prayers AnsweredOnly apt to give thanks once your prayers have been responded to…New king, new lawNew GFA Boss Kurt Okraku is getting lots of love online for this rather radical callRegretHaving earlier been hopeful of an Appiah masterclass, eating humble pie is something this tweeter doesn’t mindlast_img read more

Powered by Firework Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma- there is no doubt about the sheer love and bonding the country’s favourite couple share with each other. The feeling that started with just a shampoo ad, is now a support system the Bollywood superstar and the Men in Blue leader have in common. Speaking to India Today, Kohli recollected the first emotions he had towards his better half in the early days.Advertisement Image Courtesy: TVC/PinkvillaThe 31 year old was present in the ‘India Today Inspiration’ hosted by Boria Majumdar,  Indian sports journalist and Consulting Editor for India Today. While speaking about his career’s journey, the Royal Challengers Bangalore captain articulated the support Anushka provides him.“She is someone who has always maintained her integrity, always been a person who does the right thing. When it comes to our relationship, her taking time to come and see me or me taking time to go and see her, it’s understanding. It’s not an effort for either of us.”Advertisement The two tied knots in December 2017, maturing a relationship that came more from comfort rather than attraction.“You know when you come from a middle-class background, these are the kind of scenarios you have seen growing up. There was a lot of comfort factor immediately. The thing that was fascinating for me the most was how relaxed and how chilled out she was for who she already was at that stage.”Advertisement Kohli starred with Anushka in a Clear shampoo ad in 2013, and the decorated Men in Blue batsman also revealed that the commercial brought them close to each other.You know how welcoming and comforting she was and how was approachable she was. Immediately we just really became friendly. I was the one probably fooling around all the time and some of the jokes were really silly but that’s how I am. I love having a good time, you know having a good laugh. And she would really find a lot of things funny as well. We got talking from thereon. I am really glad that shampoo commercial happened.”Kohli will be leading team India in their upcoming T20 series against West Indies, starting from 6th December. Advertisementlast_img read more

Indian Heritage Expo set for May 26 at Leonora

first_imgThe Guyanese of Indian Ancestry Association (GIAA) on Wednesday evening launched the Indian Heritage Expo 2018 at the Indian Monument Gardens, under the theme “Embracing Our History – Regaining Our Cultural Identity”.The keynote speaker, Dr Seeta Shah Roath told the gathering that the expo is a celebration of the many ancestors from which unique cultures were birthed, and more so, a reflection of what has been accomplished over the years in every sector.“We hear a lot about agents of change but we are the agents of continuity for future generations and we have to continue to do this or as in some other countries, our legacy will go downward instead of being celebrated, expanded and enjoyed by future generations”, Dr Roath stated.Additionally, one of the coordinators of the event, Praem Rambharak, explained that the event was planned with the intention of seeking to highlight all aspects of Indian culture and the need for Guyanese to embrace their cultural identity, as mentioned in the theme.The expo is expected to attract some 5000 persons and will feature a variety of Indian food, fashion, dances, craft, and music. The popular Guyanese cricketer, Veerasammy Permaul will also be in attendance.While the organisers have promised to have an entertaining exhibition, they have called on corporate Guyana to support the event.
