perth_map

He'll get no argument for those of us who watched him the last four years. That's a lot, especially when one takes into account the stat the NCAA floated on Thursday. They didn't do anything to help the defense, but there also is time for that today along with landing the quarterback. While his arms would still be shorter than the average offensive tackle, they're 33 3/8-inches, the same length at 2017 third-round pick Antonio Garcia . Read More »

In the 57' McGree chipped the ball from teammate Ronald Vargas, with a freak scorpion kick into the top of the net - McDonald Jones Stadium erupted, as the players stood in disbelief! Despite the teenager's goal rightfully earning bags of immediate praise from the A-League commentary team, McGree's manager Ernie Merrick remains rooted to the teams bench and looks thoroughly unimpressed.

perth_map

Presumably, they never dreamed it'd be Darnold, whom many thought to be the best all-around quarterback in this draft. From walk-on to Heisman Trophy victor to No. "Today I think was an indication of how we felt about Josh Rosen , trading from 15 to 10 and in our opinion grabbing one of the best players in this draft, a guy who's got great intangibles, a three-year starter, a two-time captain, and in my opinion one of the most mechanically sound quarterbacks to come out in some time", GM ...

Austin charged the mound after Kelly hit him with a 97 miles per hour fastball and both benches cleared. Kelly's appeal likely was not helped by his "let's go" hand motions once Austin took a couple of steps towards him.

The Red Sox will now have to rely on Matt Barnes, Carson Smith and Heath Hembree to set up closer Craig Kimbrel. Read More »

Cowboys select Leighton Vander Esch 19th overall in NFL Draft

I can see Vander Esch being the captain of an National Football League defense for the next ten years. Dallas let the versatile and durable Anthony Hitchens go to Kansas City in free agency. Yet, Vander Esch does not come without flaws. Couple that size with fluid hips, sideline-to-sideline speed (4.65 forty yard dash), and above average coverage ability and you get a coach's dream of a linebacker. Read More »
