Who is Rutgers’ top football recruit Tywone Malone? His 8th grade DL coach can tell you

Along with Georgia Tech and NFL running back Charlie Rogers, former Rutgers star Jay Bellamy, who had a 14-year NFL career, former Rutgers linebacker Scott Gould, and colleagues Ralph Fierro and Jamil Hill, I helped coach a stacked Matawan Huskies youth football team in 2016.

That squad competed in the AYF Shore Conference and was ranked the third-best 14U team in the country, despite the majority of the team being 13-year olds. I also got to coach the kid who turned out to be the top player in New Jersey’s 2021 class.

I hadn’t planned to coach but came to practice one day with my son, Ethan, and Rogers asked me to demonstrate offensive and defensive line techniques. Before I knew it, the coaches were working with the skill players and the linemen suddenly were parked with me. I accepted the challenge, put the time in and helped develop them.

What Head Coach Scott Satterfield & Louisville Players Said After 46-27 Loss vs. Georgia Tech

Louisville fell short in their efforts against Georgia Tech, falling 46-27 to the hands of the Yellow Jackets for their third straight conference loss.

Here’s what Louisville head coach Scott Satterfield, quarterback Malik Cunningham, tight end Marshon Ford and safety Isaiah Hayes had to say following the loss:

Louisville Head Coach Scott Satterfield:

(On what went wrong defensively)

Just to sum it up in two words: missed tackles. Number 21 (Jahmyr Gibbs) is a good back. He’s a really good back. He’s ran the ball hard against everybody’s play. But that’s no excuse for us. We got to a much better job tackling. We’re not a very good tackling football team. I think that’s been that way for 3 – 4 years probably. We got to do something about it. We got to get better at it. I think for us, we’ll work on it, but we got to continue

An internal review of the Texas Tech softball program, which prompted the resignation of head coach Adrian Gregory, has also revealed that two players and an associate head coach were baptized at team facilities. 

Trenity Edwards, who led the team in hits in 2019, was baptized March 12, 2019, alongside coach Sam Marder, who was Jewish, according to Josh Peter of USA Today. Another player, Yvonne Whaley, was baptized on a separate occasion. Gregory was present for both events.

“What brought me to Christ, honestly, was this team and Coach G,” Edwards said in a video of her baptism that she gave USA Today

In the “Religious Freedom” section of the review, the school found that “participation in any faith-based activity was indeed voluntary” though it was “not communicated definitively” as such. 

The review of the program was organized by the school after an open

Coach Dave Doeren Virginia Tech Game Review

NC State football coach Dave Doeren has had a chance to review the video of Saturday’s 45-24 loss at Virginia Tech and needless to say, he wasn’t happy with what he saw on either side of the ball.

Here is what Doeren had to say about the game and the Wolfpack’s effort in it during his regular weekly media conference on Monday …

“As far as the game goes, it always starts with me. We did not perform the way that we thought we would. I’ve got to do a better job preparing our team. 

“We knew it would be a game of adjustments, not knowing with all the things that were out there, who might play, who might coach. We knew they had a new defensive coordinator, so not having film on them would be a first quarter where we needed to hang in there and get used to

Six weeks after a USA TODAY Sports investigation led to the firing of Texas Tech’s women’s basketball coach amid allegations of player abuse, the school’s softball coach resigned Tuesday night amid similar circumstances.

As part of a recent response to an open-records request from USA TODAY Sports for documents concerning allegations against softball coach Adrian Gregory, Texas Tech had said in a statement that it was conducting an internal review “to assess the overall culture and student-athlete well-being within the program.”

 Texas Tech athletics spokesman Robert Giovannetti said Tuesday afternoon that the review had been completed Monday night.

 On Tuesday evening, Gregory said in a statement from the school: “At this time, I have found it best to part ways with Texas Tech University and its softball program. I have truly loved Lubbock and the relationships I have built here. I

Texas Tech softball coach resigns amid reported inquiry

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Texas Tech softball coach Adrian Gregory resigned Tuesday, saying only that it was ”best to part ways” amid a report that the program is the subject of school inquiry into the well-being of its players.

Athletic director Kirby Hocutt announced the move without explanation. Gregory had just completed her sixth season at Texas Tech.

”At this time, I have found it best to part ways with Texas Tech University and its softball program,” Gregory said in a statement provided by the university. ”I have truly loved Lubbock and the relationships I have built here. I wish the current players and staff all the best as they move forward with future seasons.”

According to USA Today, Texas Tech is conducting an internal review ”to assess the overall culture and student-athlete well-being” within the softball program, focusing in part on allegations that Gregory grabbed three players.

Adrian Gregory resigns as Texas Tech softball coach

Texas Tech softball coach Adrian Gregory resigned Monday, marking the second abrupt departure in as many months by a coach of one of the school’s women’s sports programs.

Texas Tech fired women’s basketball coach Marlene Stollings in August amid allegations of a toxic and abusive atmosphere within that program.

Neither the school nor Gregory gave a reason for her departure Tuesday, a little more than a year after she signed a five-year extension. USA Today reported that the school acknowledged in response to an open-records request that it was conducting an internal review of the softball program under Gregory.

USA Today reported that review concluded Monday, the day before Gregory resigned.

In a statement, Gregory said it was “best to part ways” with the school. Also

Ex-women’s basketball coach Marlene Stollings preparing to sue Texas Tech over firing

Former Texas Tech women’s basketball coach Marlene Stollings believes she was fired without cause in August and has retained attorney Peter Ginsberg to pursue litigation against the school.

This week, Ginsberg sent a letter to Texas Tech vice chancellor and general counsel Eric Bentley regarding the preservation of all documents and electronically stored information regarding Stollings’ firing.

Stollings, 45, had four years remaining on her contract when she was dismissed — years for which she would not be paid if it’s determined she was fired for cause, as the school believes. Stollings told ESPN in a recent interview that she wants to clear her reputation.
