2nd Texas Tech football player charged in summer racing incident arrested – News – Austin American-Statesman

A second Texas Tech football player accused of racing vehicles during an incident in late June was arrested Monday.

SaRodorick Thompson, a 20-year-old running back from Irving, was booked into the Lubbock County Detention Center just before 2 p.m. Monday, according to jail records.

After posting a 10% personal bond at $2,500, Thompson represented by Fred Stangl bailed out at 4:26 p.m. Monday.

Records indicate he faces a Class B misdemeanor charge of racing stemming from a June 27 racing incident in which he’s accused of fleeing the scene while a fellow teammate was arrested.

Thompson was the Red Raiders’ leading rusher last season and again in the 2020 season opener. Tech announced later Monday that he can play in Saturday’s Big 12 opener against Texas.

“SaRodorick Thompson was notified late last week that there had been a misdemeanor warrant issued in his name,” the statement said. “Thompson and his

Astra may make 2nd orbital launch attempt this year after test flight failure

After a failed launch debut, the space startup Astra may be able to attempt its second orbital test shot before 2020 ends.

The California-based company launched its first orbital test flight Friday night (Sept. 11), sending its 38-foot-tall (12 meters) Rocket 3.1 vehicle skyward from the Pacific Spaceport Complex on Alaska’s Kodiak Island.

Everything went well with the launch at first. But then Rocket 3.1 began to drift off course, spurring launch controllers to command an engine shutdown for safety reasons about 30 seconds after liftoff. The booster came down to Earth with a bang, exploding in a fireball visible to some observers on the ground.

NEW YORK, Sept 11 (Reuters) – The Nasdaq slid and the S&P 500 closed little changed on Friday as early gains in technology and growth names faded, with each of the three major Wall Street averages posting their second straight weekly decline.

Texas Tech QB Bowman relishes fresh start in Wells’ 2nd year

Published 10:34 p.m. ET Sept. 1, 2020

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Alan Bowman is ready for a fresh start as Texas Tech’s quarterback. This time, he’d like to be playing at the end of a full season.

Bowman likely could have returned from a broken collarbone to play in Texas Tech’s final two games last season. He opted instead to save a year of eligibility and turn his focus toward 2020.

“I was more comfortable, saying, ‘Hey, let’s take an offseason, let’s get bigger, faster, stronger. Let’s get another year in the offense,'” Bowman said this fall. “Let’s play a full season instead of coming back right towards the end of the season.”

While Big 12 teams are scheduled to play only 10 games in this unprecedented season because of the coronavirus, that would be more than Bowman played in either of his first two seasons. He has played
