Playing from 2002-06, Thompson was never more than one injury (or other incident) from being the Sooners’ starting quarterback but it wasn’t until 2006 that Thompson became the unquestioned starter.
Collected Wisdom with former OU quarterback Paul Thompson
By Ryan Aber | Aug 22, 2015PAUL THOMPSON FORMER OU QUARTERBACK AGE: 31 RESIDENCE: EDMOND Paul Thompson had an unusual career at Oklahoma. Playing from 2002-06, Thompson was never more than one injury (or other incident) from being the Sooners’ starting quarterback but it wasn’t until 2006 that Thompson became the unquestioned starter. Between then and the time he arrived, Thompson redshirted after his sophomore season and spent time at wide receiver before moving back to quarterback following the dismissal of Rhett Bomar from the team and helped OU to an 11-win season and a Fiesta Bowl berth. Thompson grew up in Leander, Texas, just outside of Austin. Following a brief offseason and training camp stint in the NFL, Thompson entered private business and moved to Edmond. He lives there with his wife Ashlee, 2-year-old son Draden and twin 1-year-old daughters Brooklyn and Brynnlee. I was 8 years old when I started playing football. I know they do it a lot sooner now but that’s what it used to be. It used to be third grade before you could play contact football and there was no flag football even at an earlier age. I played baseball all the way until third grade and then I could play football and it was full pads. It seems like they’re getting younger and younger when it comes to pads. I think it’s important to understand the game before you get into all of the contact and all of that. I have a son now and people ask me all the time do I want him to play football. I say, “Of course.” I’d want him to wait until 8, 9, 10 before it’s full pads. I think some of the flag football stuff at an early age is good. I’m not overly concerned just because I think I’m far more aware of what’s going on now whereas when I played, I can think of a couple times where I probably got my bell lit and that’s just what it was. You got your bell rung and you went back out there. Parents can still allow their kids to play but I think things are monitored far better now. For me as a parent, I’ll know exactly when my son needs to come out or knocks himself out a little bit whereas before, several years ago, you’d just say, “Hey, shake it off and get back in there.” Also too, at an early age, the collisions are very minimal. It’s more just falling down. It’s really different from the collisions past middle school into high school and college. Yeah, they’re in pads. They’re just bumping around. It’s not extreme contact anyways. I look at the positives of what football’s done. It’s not only carried me through college from a degree standpoint but even into my professional field now. Those connections and the stuff that I learned, there’s a lot of value in it. Whether it’s sports or another extracurricular activity, it’s got to be something. Sports, that’s what it was for me and my family, my brothers and everybody growing up. It created structure in my life. It showed me how to win. It showed me how to lose. You learn how to develop character. There’s so many things that come along with it. We’ve got our kids in gymnastics already, even at an early age, just because of that — getting them in something structured, something where they have to learn to listen to authority and just the fundamentals of development, motor skills and all of that. I think it’s invaluable when it comes to development. If you came into our backyard right now, you’d see pretty much every sport. We’ve been swinging the baseball bat, we’ve got footballs, basketballs, soccer ball and a soccer net, a little golf ball and clubs. He’s got everything available for him. We’ll see what he takes off with but we definitely want to make everything available for him. It was a journey at OU. There’s always ups and downs when it comes to a player, maybe wanting to play sooner or overcoming adversity. For me, to come to the University of Oklahoma, a school that was two years removed from a national championship, and to be a part of that was unbelievable in itself. To get the opportunity to play my true freshman year when Jason White tore his ACL vs. Alabama there in Norman and me coming in and backing up Nate Hybl was awesome and then the following year kind of the same thing when Jason returned. He comes back for a sixth year. C’mon Jason, you’re 26 years old and still trying to play, man. You’re putting me in a bind. That was a little untraditional. For me to play two years and then decide to sit out a year was difficult. We went on, we had a great year and went on to the national championship game that year. You’re excited for your team but you also felt pretty removed given that you weren’t necessarily sharing in the success of the team. My junior year and being named the starter and losing to TCU and moving to receiver. Then my senior year after Rhett Bomar was kicked off the team and moving back to quarterback and winning the Big 12 championship and ending my career with the Boise State game. It was up and down but I wouldn’t change it for the world. One of the things that I hear when I see people out and about is that they admire my team mentality and sticking in there and staying focused. Things like that go a long way. People ask, “Why didn’t you transfer?” Because you never know. My senior year turned out pretty magical and had I left, I wouldn’t have been able to experience that. It all worked out for the best. I learned a lot from it. I was right there every year. From the time I stepped on campus and Jason White went down, I was pretty much one snap away from that game on as far as being the guy. Even though I redshirted (the third year), had Jason gotten injured early in that season, I would have came out of my redshirt to be the guy. My junior year, I was named the starter then moved to receiver and was getting playing time there. I had kind of accepted that role as a receiver and felt I could play this position effectively and help this team win and get on the field and then who knows, maybe I can parlay this into an NFL career. Had circumstances maybe been different early on, where maybe I was third on the depth chart or just knew I wasn’t going to see the field, then early on maybe I would’ve made a decision to go somewhere else. But the carrot was right there, right in front of me and I was ready to grab it. The 2006 year was great. No one expected us to do what we did that year. We had to overcome a lot of adversity early in that year with the crazy game in Oregon and had a call that kind of put us behind the eight ball a little bit in regard to national title contention. But we fought through it. We lost to Texas and then lose A.D. (Adrian Peterson) in the Iowa State game. Let alone prior to that season when the news came out that Bomar was gone. Everybody wrote us off. As we went through that season, there were some hurdles that we had to overcome. Allen Patrick did an awesome job of stepping in for A.D. and we ended up making it to the Big 12 championship and beating a Nebraska team that was a pretty good team that year. There wasn’t a better feeling than doing that and getting a berth in the Fiesta Bowl. It was about this time back in '06. We were just a couple weeks from our first game, right at the start of camp or right before camp started and I just get a call and I go up to Coach Stoops’ office and (Josh) Heuple. Coach Stoops just told me they were dismissing Bomar. I remember being just shocked at that and then him saying, “We want you to come back to quarterback as well.” The whole previous year I had fully committed to wide receiver. I thought what Blake Bell did last year was awesome. It’s not always an easy transition, which is what I learned going from QB to receiver. There’s some different physical challenges you have to overcome and there’s some different mental things you have to learn as well. For him to switch like he did and be able to contribute like he did says a lot about him. He ended up playing his cards right. I think he was able to benefit the team last year and then he set himself up now to have an NFL career. I have the utmost respect for him. In that Oregon game in '06, we couldn’t see everything like the TV audience could. When that game ended, I didn’t know how had we got ducked. We couldn’t see the replay. They say they got the ball and I thought maybe that’s what it was. Then there was a pass interference call when C.J. Ah You tipped a pass and it’s obviously tipped. It was just a debacle. Everybody was frustrated. It wasn’t until we got back on the bus and we got to our cell phones that people realized what happened and how bad it was and then when we get home and actually watch the replay and watch Allen Patrick pick that ball up as obvious as it could be. For that to be reviewed and still reward Oregon with the ball blows my mind. My time in the NFL was good. It wasn’t long. I didn’t play any games or anything but I was able to kind of quench my thirst as far as playing professionally. I didn’t play a whole lot but I kind of got to see the inside and how everything worked. It’s not as great as it might’ve seen from the outside looking in as far as how you were treated. Yeah, you can make good income but it’s a grind. It’s a grind physically. It’s a grind mentally. It’s very difficult to have a family because you’re always on the go, you’re traveling, you’re getting cut, you’ve got to get up and move. I kind of got to see the inner workings and saw how brutal the game is. It’s extremely, extremely stressful. The experience in Green Bay was awesome. Getting to sit in film rooms with Aaron Rodgers and Brett Favre was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. That in itself was something that I’ll be able to have forever. But outside of that, just playing the game and being treated the way you were, yeah I would’ve loved to have maybe played a couple games here or there but after Green Bay released me and I signed with Tennessee after that season and I was with them through the offseason, it was pretty easy for me to say, “That’s a wrap for me.” My agent wanted me to go do some Canadian stuff or some arena and I said, “Nuh-uh.” I don’t even know if I would play for what the NFL would pay me, I’m damn sure not going to do it for a third of the price or a fourth. I’ve always been kind of business-minded anyway. I can do what I want to do, have a family. I don’t have to worry about getting cut or traded across the country.

Then as now, Burris was a highly-decorated ballplayer who sometimes had to wait on his honors. Some of that changes Monday night, when Burris, who died in 1999, is inducted into the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame.
Why late OU football great Kurt Burris was The Boss
By BERRY TRAMEL | Jul 30, 2015Forty-seven years before Oregon placed a huge image of quarterback Joey Harrington on Times Square, 36 years before Brigham Young mailed cardboard ties to entice votes for quarterback Ty Detmer and 13 years before Notre Dame changed the pronunciation of Joe Theismann’s name to rhyme with a certain college football trophy, no less a straight-laced custodian of the game than Bud Wilkinson got in on the Heisman Trophy campaigning. The object of Wilkinson’s stumping was Kurt Burris. Then as now, Burris was a highly-decorated ballplayer who sometimes had to wait on his honors. Some of that changes Monday night, when Burris, who died in 1999, is inducted into the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame. “He was one great football player,” said Burris’ roommate and teammate both at OU and back home growing up outside Muskogee, his brother Bob. Wilkinson concurred. Late in the 1954 season, according to OU historian and then-sports information director Harold Keith, Wilkinson pointed out that Burris was “probably more deserving of the Heisman than any other man in the nation in any position.” Keith wrote in his book, Forty-Seven Straight, that “we both knew that the sports press had always ignored interior linemen and that Burris, a center, was as interior as one could get. But we decided to try anyhow and strike a blow not only for Burris but for all deserving interior linemen of the future.” So Keith and Wilkinson hatched a plan. They wrote a short, personal letter to every sports editor in the nation — approximately 3,500 were listed in Editor and Publisher Yearbook — making the case for Burris. They called in a colleague from OU’s Department of Office Administration, who commissioned 100 students to help type the letters. Most were Burris fans, the letters were whipped out in a day or two and Keith got them mailed off first-class from the old post office on Gray Street. The campaign worked. Oh, Wisconsin’s Alan Ameche won the Heisman. That was a Midwest era. From 1947 through 1956, seven Heisman winners were from the Big Ten or Notre Dame. But Burris finished a strong second, with 838 points in the voting to Ameche’s 1,058. Sixty-one years later, the Burris campaign remains the closest a lineman has come to winning the Heisman. Burris probably handled his runnerup status well. Heck, he wasn’t even the most-hailed Sooner player in his family. Brother Buddy Burris, a decade older than Kurt, was a three-time all-American at OU after serving in World War II. Buddy Burris and Rod Shoate are the only three-time all-Americans in Sooner history. Burris, a tough-blocking center and a ferocious-hitting linebacker, was a team leader of the highest order. Hearing Burris’ brothers talk about him is like hearing Dewey and Lee Roy Selmon talk about older brother Lucious. Nobody messed with Lucious Selmon, and nobody messed with Kurt Burris. Burris was tough, maybe even mean on the football field, but the best word to describe Burris was authoritative. Kurt Burris was boss. “He always assumed a leadership role in anything that was done,” said Lynn Burris, born four years behind Kurt and now a Supreme Court justice for the Cherokee Nation in Tahlequah. “He was captain of the ship most of the time.” Kurt Burris ruled the old Jefferson House on OU’s campus. He was a serious student, and “when he studied, everybody in the dormitory studied,” Lynn Burris said, “or he’d run ‘em off or whip ‘em.” A group of Sooners went camping on the Illinois River in the 1950s. Kurt Burris soon began organizing the camp, delegating responsibilities. “Who appointed you boss?” asked fullback David Rolle. “I did,” Burris answered. “You want to challenge me?” “No,” said Rolle, “I just wanted to know.” That ended that conversation. A couple of scrapes early in Burris’ college days established his ground, and few people dared cross him. Bob Burris, a year behind Kurt and an eventual All-Big Seven halfback, said his brother was a “very, very nice, low-key type person. But when he spoke, you listened. He was a lot bigger than I was. I found out in junior high school I could outrun him. But that didn’t really mean much, because I had to come home at night.” Tommy McDonald, Wilkinson’s great halfback from 1954-56, could outrun Kurt Burris, too, and needed to. He goaded Burris into chasing him into a dorm room one day and jumped out a second-floor window to escape his teammate’s wrath. Burris was mortified, thinking McDonald had injured himself at least and killed himself at worst. Until he realized McDonald had stacked mattresses below the window to cushion his fall. Opponents had no such cushion. “Kurt wasn’t happy with tackling a runner,” Bob Burris said. “He wanted to hit him in the nose. Didn’t have many facemasks back then. He was a go-getter. Football-wise, he was a hunter. He didn’t just like to tackle people. He wanted to put ‘em on the ground quick. No form tackling. He hit ‘em where he could hit ‘em. “ Lynn Burris called his brother a “headhunter. He wouldn’t be able to play today. He usually knocked two or three guys out of a game. That’s a no-no now. He would be awful upset to see football as it is now.” Kurt Burris was a first-round draft pick of the Cleveland Browns in 1955 but decided instead to play in the Canadian Football League. The money was just as good and the business opportunities better. Burris eventually went into the oil business in Colorado and Montana. And now Burris now goes into his state’s sports hall of fame. No Heisman Trophy is on his resume’; the endorsement of Bud Wilkinson will have to do. Berry Tramel: Berry can be reached at (405) 760-8080 or at email@example.com.

Northwest Oklahoma travelblog: How I made it to Longdale
Berry Tramel | Jul 27, 2015[img width="" height="" style="" render="w620"]3746730[/img] NASCAR veterans Kenny Schrader and Kenny Wallace will compete Tuesday night at the Longdale Speedway, which is on Highway 58 in the northwest corner of Blaine County, between Fairview and Canton. Longdale Speedway runs International Motor Car Association series, and Wallace and Schrader are scheduled to compete against local drivers. And how I know all this is a good story. At least to me. You can learn a lot by getting in your car and getting out of town. A week ago Friday, I took a road trip to a section of Oklahoma I rarely see but always enjoy. The grandfather of our man Jacob Unruh died, and his funeral was in Cherokee, which is about 20 miles east of Alva. We call Jacob “Virgil” for reasons that are a mystery to me, but we think the world of Virgil and wanted to make sure he knew we were thinking of him. So three of us were able to break away to make the 21/2-hour drive to the service. High school editor Darla Smith, sports web editor Erik Horne and myself. We also gave a ride to Virgil’s wife, who is in nursing school, had some business in OKC that morning and needed a ride to meet her husband. So we launched off from Northwest Expressway and away we went. Out to Okarche and onto Highway 81 north through Kingfisher, Dover, Hennessey, Waukomis and Enid. Darla’s a life-long Yukon gal, so she’s been all over the state, but Erik the Red is from Louisiana and hadn’t been past Okarche. So we gave him an educated tour of that region and eventually gave all of us an educated tour of that region. I always build up Okarche and Kingfisher as my favorite small towns in Oklahoma. Okarche as my favorite tiny town — 2,000 or less population — and Kingfisher as my favorite small town. I just love their feel and their pride. Both are well-kept. Cool, old houses. Not a bunch of shabby homes and buildings falling down. Not every place is spit-shine, but no place, home or business, is a dump. At least from what you can see. A few months ago, I went through Davis, down in southern Oklahoma, and was reminded that Davis can give Kingfisher a run for best small town above 2,000 population, but still, Kingfisher is a cool place. And Erik was duly impressed. We built it up, and Kingfisher delivered. Dover has a better setting, with more trees lining the little town, but it’s run down. Hennessey is a solid town but isn’t quite as well maintained. Not much to Waukomis to maintain. Driving through Enid was fun. For such a big place — population in the 50,000 range — I rarely make it up there. We drove past the Plainsmen’s football field, where Lydell Carr and PJ Mills and Austin Box and Clint Chelf starred, and I should have driven Erik the Red over to the downtown area where Mark Price Arena sits. Enid has to have one of the most unique high school basketball coliseums in America. A civic auditorium, named after an NBA star. Enid’s a lot like Ponca City and Bartlesville, other northern Oklahoma towns that once were the headquarters of major oil companies. Phillips in Bartlesville, Conoco in Ponca, Champlin in Enid. All are big versions of Kingfisher. Well-kept. Lots of pride. Lots of history. Good places to live, if you don’t need a metropolitan city. Champlin was closed in 1984, and Enid has found its footing without a major anchor. The guys in the car made fun of me, because I drew a rough map of our trip. I hate following GPS, or even phone maps, because they don’t give you a big picture. I couldn’t find an old-fashioned road map, so I drew one before we left. Darla made fun of it, took a picture of it and put it on FaceBook. Dirty Rotten Scoundrel. Anyway, north of Enid, I had planned to turn west on Highway 45 and go through Carrier, where my pal Richard Mize recently pastored a Congregational Church, and Goltry and Helena, towns which formed a consolidated school. But I missed that turn, so we went on north and then west on U.S. 64. That took us through Jet and Nash, two more towns that long ago consolidated schools. Not much to Jet or Nash, but I remember from the ‘70s, looking at the scores of Jet-Nash and Helena-Goltry. Now, those two schools and four towns have consolidated into one school. The elementary school is in Jet, the high school is in Helena. It’s 20 miles from Nash to Helena, so that’s a fair drive. But it’s the truth of western Oklahoma. Diminishing population, schools trying to survive. My only knock on Timberlake is the name. Where’s the timber? There’s no timber in northwestern Oklahoma. The lake, I sort of get, since the Great Salt Plains Lake sits just north of Jet. But Timberlake is a good name for a school in Little Dixie or Green Country. How about Salt Plains High School? Or Big Sky High School? Oh well. Driving along U.S. 64, you see Great Salt Plains Lake off to the north. At least you think it’s the lake. It might be the shimmering selenite crystals that form part of the shoreline. The saline content is perhaps a quarter that of ocean water, and the crystals are unique to the area. Visitors dig for the crystals, and Oklahoma maintains a state park as part of the lake. It’s a little like Little Sahara, which is one county over from Alfalfa, in Woods County, between Woodward and Alva, and has magnificent sand dunes that attract motorcycle riders. Barren territory that suddenly draws people. Sand dunes, salt lakes. Oklahoma is an interesting place. Anyway, we drove on into Cherokee and found complete charm. Great small town. Some cool old houses. A good-sized grocery store. Some small businesses. A couple of neat churches. Alfalfa County courthouse. And way more trees than you’d expect in northwest Oklahoma. I seemed to remember that Cherokee had a downtown movie theater that famously burned some years ago. We found a storefront that seemed like it could have been the theater, but I couldn’t be sure. I forgot to ask anyone, and I couldn’t find anything on the Internet, so maybe I’m mixed up. Anyway, Cherokee was a great little town. The service at the First Baptist Church was nice. Virgil spoke about his grandfather and did a great job. A men’s quartet sang, and the four men produced beautiful harmony on both “How Great Thou Art” and “It Is Well With My Soul.” First off, you can’t miss with good material. Two of the top five songs of all-time, and I might be short-changing them. Add in quality voices, then touch it off with the endorsement of Jehovah himself, and it was riveting. I’m not kidding around. It started raining a little as we arrived in Cherokee, and it was raining pretty good when we got out of the car. During the service, it started storming. And I swear, when the quartet sang the first verse of “How Great Thou Art,” at the very point when they belted out “I hear the roaring thunder,” the skies boomed with thunder that shook everyone in the sanctuary, both physically and spiritually. It was the darndest thing. We paid our respects to Virgil, then headed out. I was determined to go home a different way, see more stuff, and it didn’t take us long. I went south out of Cherokee and hooked up with Highway 8. I wanted to go through Fairview, a decent-sized town that I had never visited. We went through Cleo Springs, not much there, but north of Fairview, we passed another Oklahoma jewel — Gloss Mountain. We saw in the distance, off to the west, some beautiful mesas. Didn’t know what they were but eventually found out. The Gloss Mountains, sometimes called the Glass Mountains, according to travelok.com, have a high selenite content that mimics a shiny glass exterior. There’s a state park at Gloss Mountain, with hiking trails, and spectacular scenery. Let me promise you. The landscape in northwestern Oklahoma is underrated. Now you know why they call it Fairview. I had never been to the Major County seat, which has a population of about 2,500. But Fairview had a good football program in the 1980s, and I sort of always followed the Yellowjackets. Plus, I had an extra reason for going. A few years ago, at Mike Gundy’s kickoff golf tournament in Stillwater, I ran into a guy I once knew. Todd Smith played football at Norman High, graduating in 1983, and went to OU on a football scholarship. I covered that 1982 Norman team, and I lost track of Todd after that. But there he was at Karsten Creek that day. Turns out he married a Fairview girl and was running his father-in-law’s car dealership in Fairview. The father-in-law was an OSU booster, so here was an ex-Sooner, at the Gundy Invitational. I enjoyed seeing Todd and told him I’d stop in if I ever was in Fairview. And so I was in Fairview. Todd runs Jensen’s Buick-GMC dealership. It’s a great old art deco building, with lots of vintage signs. Alas, Todd was not in the office, so I left him a note and we were on our way. Fairview seemed like a nice place. Not quite up to Kingfisher’s standards, I’d say, but livable. They’ve got a Sonic, a Pizza Hut and a Taco Mayo. Fairview probably is like much of western Oklahoma, in that it is reeling a little from the oil bust after the great oil boom that created a housing shortage. In Cherokee, we saw a sign for dorm-style lodging that could house 60 workers. But until the price of oil bounces back, that demand has weakened. Fairview actually has three car dealerships. Jensen’s Buick-GMC, Eischen’s Chevrolet (don’t know the relationship to the Okarche landmark) and Vinton Baker Ford. Any place with three new car dealers has something going for it. Leaving Fairview, I was going to go east on Highway 58, then jog back south to Okeene, because going south out of Fairview veered west and was out of the way. But before we turned around, I saw a mileage sign. Longdale 13. And my heart leaped. I swear. I try not to be too sentimental. But I got all fired up. Longdale is where my dad coached high school basketball in the 1950s. I had heard him talk about Longdale all my life, but I had never been there. I knew it was close to Canton, and I once thought about trying to go through Longdale on the way home from Colorado, but it was out of the way, and everybody was tired. So I told Darla and Erik the Red. We’re going to Longdale. Longdale High School is long since closed. I think in the ‘70s. The elementary school closed in 1991. My impression of Longdale was as a ghost town. That nobody and nothing would be there anymore. But I was wrong. Longdale still lives. It’s got a population just under 300, with a couple of gas station/convenience stores and quite a few houses. And the gymnasium still stands. The Longdale gym looks like an old WPA project — heck, it is an old WPA project, we found an inscription — but on the north end is painted a huge mural detailing the history of Longdale. The gym is locked up, but it was cool to walk around the place where my dad coached 60 years ago. We snapped a few pictures, then we were on our way. Seems like in the ‘70s, when I was a kid, some guys from Longdale that had played for my dad dropped by the house, the morning of an OU football game. My dad died in 2007; how I wish I had made the trip to Longdale with him. Anyway, back to NASCAR. As we left Longdale, there suddenly appeared a race track. Glittering. New. I’ve passed a bunch of Oklahoma dirt tracks, and none of them stood out like this. We were stunned. We had no idea what it could be or why it would be. But Darla looked it up on that FaceBook machine of hers, and there came the news. Longdale Speedway. Home of regular racing. Hosting Kenny Schrader and Kenny Wallace on July 28. Turns out, Longdale Speedway is thriving with local racers from all over zipping into town to race on most Saturday nights. Our adventure was mostly over. We drove down to Canton, hit Highway 51 and took it east through Okeene, which I had been to recently. I showed Darla and Erik the Red the great spires atop the St. Anthony Catholic Church. You can’t believe it. Looks like something you’d see in Italy. Then we drove south to Watonga, east back to Kingfisher and finally we were backtracking. We stopped in Okarche at the Popcorn Station, a popcorn store that sits on the north side of the road that runs through Okarche and separates Kingfisher and Canadian counties. Eischen’s Bar, home of the world’s greatest fried chicken, actually is in Canadian County. Then it was back down Highway 3, which becomes Northwest Expressway and the city that seems far removed in more than just miles from Cherokee and the Great Salt Plains Lake and art deco Buick dealership and the old gymnasium where my dad coached 60 years ago. Quite an adventure for a summer’s day.

The Latest: VP Biden dotes on grandson as he watches final
By TIM BOOTH, Associated Press | Jul 5, 2015VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — The latest from the Women's World Cup final (all times local): 8:32 p.m. U.S. Vice President Joe Biden played the role of fan and teacher while he watched the American victory in the Women's World Cup final. Biden kept a close watch on the United States' 5-2 win over Japan on Sunday, while also explaining the action or discussing the play with his grandson, Hunter. "Ten minutes, Hunt. Ten minutes," he said as the team inched closer to victory. Biden was asked by a pool reporter if he played soccer as a kid, and he marveled at the growth of the sport. "I played football," he said. "My boys were 5 and 6 and started in a county league. And it went from 50 kids to 600 in three years. I don't even think the high school that I went to had a soccer team." ___ 6:15 p.m. Carli Lloyd has won the Golden Ball as the most outstanding player in the Women's World Cup. Lloyd had a hat trick in the final as the U.S. defeated Japan 5-2 and finished with six goals in the tournament. U.S. goalkeeper Hope Solo won the Golden Gloves award as the top goalkeeper in the tournament. The United States defense was stellar throughout and went 540 minutes between the first match of the group stage and Sunday's final without giving up a goal. Canada's Kadeisha Buchanan won the Best Young Player award and Germany's Celia Sasic won the Golden Boot. ___ 5:51 p.m. The United States has won its third Women's World Cup title and first since 1999 with a 5-2 victory over Japan on Sunday behind a first-half hat trick by Carli Lloyd. The Americans became the first country with three women's titles and got a measure of revenge for their loss in the 2011 final against Japan. Abby Wambach and Christie Rampone, the only player remaining from the 1999 title team, both came on as subs late in what's expected to be their final World Cup appearances. Lloyd scored in the third, sixth and 16th minutes, the last a speculative shot from midfield that beat Japan goalkeeper Ayumi Kaihori. Lloyd scored the fastest hat trick in World Cup history, men's or women's, in the highest scoring Women's World Cup final. Lauren Holiday also scored in the first half and Tobin Heath added a goal in the 54th minute after Japan scored an own goal to cut the deficit to 4-2. ___ 5:36 p.m. Abby Wambach has come on for the United States in what is expected to be her final Women's World Cup appearance. Wambach subbed on in the 79th minute against Japan with the U.S. leading 5-2. Wambach has morphed from being a starter to a late sub off the bench during the tournament, a role that seemed to boost the American attack. Chants of "We want Abby," started around the 65-minute mark. The roar grew when she was called over to the bench in the 75th minute. Wambach isn't the only star making her World Cup farewell. Japan's Homare Sawa came on in the first half. Sawa is playing in her record sixth Women's World Cup. ___ 5:15 p.m. Just when Japan appeared to have a glimmer of hope, Tobin Heath answered back in a hurry for the Americans. Moments after Japan scored on an own goal, Heath scored off a scramble in the penalty area to give the United States a 5-2 lead. Japan had just cut the deficit to 4-2 in the 52nd minute when U.S. defender Julie Johnston's header went past goalkeeper Hope Solo and into the American net. But the U.S. responded briskly with Morgan Brian laying off a pass into the middle of the box where Heath was unmarked. The seven combined goals are the most ever in a Women's World Cup final. ___ 4:50 p.m. Carli Lloyd rewrote the Women's World Cup record book with three goals in the first 16 minutes as the United States took a 4-1 lead at halftime of the final against Japan on Sunday. Lloyd set records for the fastest goal and became the first woman to score a hat trick in the World Cup final. She also was the third American woman to score a hat trick in any World Cup match, joining Michelle Akers and Carin Jennings Gabarra, both of which came during the 1991 tournament. Lloyd's hat trick was the fastest in women's or men's World Cup history. Lloyd is also the first American to score goals in four straight World Cup matches. Lauren Holiday's goal in the 14th minute gave the Americans a 3-0 lead and Lloyd scored from midfield moments later. She also had chances at a fourth and possibly fifth goal during the first half. ___ 4:31 p.m. Japan is on the board with a goal from Yuki Ogimi, cutting its deficit to 4-1 and ending the United States' streak of not allowing a goal at 540 minutes. Ogimi scored just before the half-hour mark in Sunday's Women's World Cup final. She out-positioned Julie Johnston for a cross into the U.S. penalty area and beat American goalkeeper Hope Solo with a left-footed shot. The U.S. had not allowed a goal since the opening match of the tournament against Australia. ___ 4:20 p.m. The rout is on. Carli Lloyd scored her third goal of the first half catching Japan goalkeeper Ayumi Kaihori off her line and scoring from midfield as the United States has taken a 4-0 lead in the first 20 minutes of the Women's World Cup final. Lloyd scored the two fastest goals in Women's World Cup history, scoring twice in the first six minutes of the match. Lauren Holiday scored to give the U.S. a 3-0 lead when she volleyed a shot past Kaihori after a header from Japan defender Azusa Iwashimizu went straight up in the air. Moments later Lloyd took a speculative shot from midfield and completed her hat trick. ___ 4:07 p.m. The United States has taken a 2-0 lead on two goals from captain Carli Lloyd in the first six minutes of the Women's World Cup final against Japan. Lloyd scored in the third minute off a corner kick from Megan Rapinoe that was driven low into the penalty box. Lloyd made a run from outside the box and one-touched the shot past Japan goalkeeper Ayumi Kaihori. Moments later, Lloyd scored again off a scramble in the penalty area in the sixth minute after a free kick from the U.S. just outside the Japan penalty area. __ 3:55 p.m. Abby Wambach hopes the "fairytale-like ending," comes on Sunday for not only herself but her U.S. teammates. In an extended monologue interview with Fox Sports, Wambach says, "I hope this is it, not just for me but this entire group of women." Wambach fought back tears throughout the seven-minute interview that was shown prior to the Women's World Cup final between the U.S. and Japan. Wambach says she's not one to often show a vulnerable side but the days are ticking away for her pro soccer career. "I've had the best life and it's all in total because of the friendships I've made. I've literally grown up on this team and the good, the bad and the ugly my teammates have helped me through it all," Wambach said. Wambach was not in the starting lineup for the U.S., but is expected to be one of the first options off the bench. ___ 3:35 p.m. Jill Ellis has no doubt she's made her dad proud. John Ellis served as a commando in the British Marines, and had a long career as a coach, before moving the family to Virginia when Jill was a young girl. The U.S. coach has relied on her father's advice at the Women's World Cup. Ellis faced criticism early on for the team's stagnant offense. But step by step throughout the tournament, the Americans have come together. Now the United States is in the final facing Japan, the team that beat them four years ago at the World Cup in Germany. Ellis has proven adept at shutting out the noise, saying her dad told her when she got into coaching that "50 percent will be with you and 50 percent will be against you." John Ellis is not in Canada for the final. But the 76-year-old does send his daughter texts reading, "Three deep breaths. Keep going." ___ 3:05 p.m. U.S. Vice President Joe Biden arrived in Vancouver around midday Sunday and met with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper prior to attending the Women's World Cup final between Japan and the U.S. Biden led a U.S. delegation to the final that included his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, U.S. Ambassador to Canada Bruce Heyman, and two former U.S. soccer stars: Mia Hamm and Cobi Jones. Also traveling with the vice president: three of his grandchildren and President Barack Obama's daughter Sasha, according to a pool report. Jill Biden led the delegation to the final in 2011 in Germany which the U.S. lost to Japan, but her husband was absent from that trip. ___ 2:40 p.m. Japan was reeling in the wake of the destructive tsunami that struck the country in March 2011. Its women's soccer team had a World Cup in Germany to prepare for while the country was trying to rebuild. One of the opposing countries that became critical in helping Japan prepare for that World Cup it eventually won with friendlies and joint practices: The United States. Japan coach Norio Sasaki said before Sunday's final that he was thankful for how the U.S. helped Japanese soccer during a "tough situation." This will be the third straight major final between the countries with Japan winning the World Cup in 2011 and the U.S. winning the Olympic final in 2012. The Japanese women became stars and a rallying point for their country in the wake of the tsunami, but interest in the team has waned in the years since. "If we can win, we can make soccer a part of Japanese culture, not just a fad," Japan captain Aya Miyama said. ___ 2 p.m. Vancouver is awash in the stars and stripes. American fans filled the streets of Vancouver on Sunday ahead of the Women's World Cup final between Japan and the United States. A large number of those fans came from the Pacific Northwest, with easy access from the soccer hotbeds of Seattle and Portland, Oregon. Sounders, Timbers, Seattle Reign and Portland Thorns jerseys were scattered among the crowd of American jerseys with the names "Wambach," ''Leroux" and "Morgan" across the back. But not all were locals. One family riding the train Sunday morning decided to have a family reunion in Vancouver for the final. One part of the family was from Virginia, the other from California. They bought their tickets for the final at halftime of the U.S. semifinal match against Germany when the game was still tied 0-0 in the hopes the U.S. would prevail. They turned out to be right.

Ogbongbemiga, of Calgary, Alberta, is second cousins with OSU defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah.
OSU football: Cowboys land verbal commitment from Canadian linebacker Amen Ogbongbemiga
By Kyle Fredrickson | Jun 27, 2015Back in the mid-2000s, a pair of second cousins and native Nigerians played street football with a group of young boys in their Houston-area neighborhood. The rules were simple. Two-hand touch on the concrete. Every man for himself on the grass. That’s how Emmanuel Ogbah and Amen Ogbongbemiga developed their love of the game. “I would always play with them, no matter what,” said Ogbongbemiga, the younger cousin. “That was a big part of my childhood.” Now, it appears the duo will reunite on a real playing surface in Stillwater. Ogbongbemiga, a linebacker, verbally committed Saturday to Oklahoma State’s 2016 recruiting class following in the footsteps of Ogbah, the Cowboys’ returning All-Big 12 defensive end. And it was the cousin connection that set the wheels in motion. “(Ogbah) got me the opportunity,” Ogbongbemiga said. “He told his coaches, ‘This guy is the real deal.’” Although they share common roots, Ogbongbemiga’s path to OSU featured a unique twist. One year before Ogbah graduated from George Bush High School in 2012, Ogbongbemiga’s family relocated to Canada (Calgary, Alberta). He tallied 104 tackles, four forced fumbles and three sacks as a junior last season to lead Notre Dame High School to its third-straight Provincial Tier 1 Championship — on a Canadian field that measured 65 yards from sideline-to-sideline, more than 10 longer than NCAA specifications, against lesser competition compared to the Texas prep powerhouses Ogbah and many other Cowboys faced. “It could be an advantage and a disadvantage,” Ogbongbemiga said. “In Canada, you’ve got to be more of a sideline-to-sideline runner. In America, you’ve got to get downhill. But football is football, no matter where you’re at.” His high school coach, Dave Diluzio, says Ogbongbemiga might be the first player from Calgary to play at a NCAA Division-I program in at least 10 years. Ogbongbemiga also held a scholarship offer from Nevada and received interest from Notre Dame, Rice, Ohio and others. “It’s obviously a tremendous feat for him,” said Diluzio. “I think it’s going to be a seamless transition, just because he’s a good competitor. His athleticism is really going to help him. He’s so multifaceted. Because of his football IQ, we were able to do a lot of unique things on defense.” Ogbongbemiga, 6-foot-1 and 208 pounds, is no stranger to making adjustments. He currently plays MAC linebacker, a position that requires quick thinking on the fly. But a stronger example is simply his life journey. Ogbongbemiga was born in Nigeria and moved the U.S. when he was just four. Eight years later, he left for Calgary. And in about 12 months, he plans on being back in the states. “He’s definitely wise beyond his years,” Diluzio said. “We obviously have a lot of immigrants in Canada, but we’re at a point now where it’s a lot of second and third generation people coming to our country. For him to do that move twice, from Nigeria to the US and from the US to Canada, it’s really made him mature.” Added Ogbongbemiga: “It shows me the diversity of the world and how different cultures are in different places. I’m not so narrow minded about anyone now.” Any transition concerns clearly weren’t an issue for OSU defensive coordinator Glenn Spencer. After Ogbah notified the coaching staff of Ogbongbemiga’s talent, he flew in for a summer camp. On June 14, he received a scholarship offer. “I had to go to a camp and I had to work hard to get that scholarship offer,” said Ogbongbemiga. “Once I got it, I kind of knew where I was going … Coach Spencer is a great guy. He told me that I’m going to have to work hard. It’s not just going to be a walk in the park.” As OSU fans learn more about Ogbongbemiga, who has an older brother and sister, one question remains. How did he get the name Amen? He explains. “It’s actually a funny story,” Ogbongbemiga said. “I was named that because my mom and dad wanted me to be the last child. Like, ‘Amen, I’m done.’ Turns out, I am the last child.”

U.S. policy keeps medical marijuana research funding low
Donald Bradley, Associated Press | Jun 9, 2015Certain chemicals in marijuana may kill cancer cells, shrink tumors and prevent the formation of blood vessels that feed tumors. That’s the National Cancer Institute reporting findings from preclinical trials — the kind of research that typically leads to more in-depth testing. But nearly a half-century ago the folks who write the checks for the cancer institute — the U.S. government — proclaimed marijuana a stoner-only drug and stamped it Schedule I, lumping it with heroin and LSD. That early war-on-drugs salvo cut the world’s biggest funder out of medical marijuana research. Had the U.S. cut checks back then to turn the big research labs loose we might know by now that marijuana is nothing more than a good buzz, as promising as the smoke that spills out of Jeff Spicoli’s van. Or, who knows? Marijuana-based drugs could be improving lives today. Maybe even saving some. Because while America was just saying no, research — much of it from other countries — has shown that marijuana derivatives called cannabinoids and cannabidiol can trigger the body’s natural defenses to fight things such as cancer, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, Crohn’s disease and epilepsy. A Canadian study concluded cannabis reduced pain and improved sleep for sufferers of neuropathic pain. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced the league is monitoring research being done in Israel on marijuana being used to treat traumatic brain injury. Health organizations, such as the American Cancer Society, increasingly say the Schedule I label stands in the way of scientific research. But the federal government continues to stick to its Nixon-era stance — even when calls for change come from its own agencies. “That’s my definition of chaos,” said J. Michael Bostwick, a psychiatrist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., and author of “Blurred Boundaries: The Therapeutics and Politics of Medical Marijuana.” “The federal government needs to change its position so this research can take place,” Bostwick said. So it’s a catch-22: marijuana being on the Schedule I list impedes research that could show it doesn’t belong there. Medical marijuana as treatment Who can change this? That’s another fight. Earlier this year, then-U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder called on Congress to do it. Rep. Steve Cohen, a Tennessee Democrat, quickly reminded Holder that the attorney general already had the authority to reclassify marijuana. The easiest route would be for the Drug Enforcement Administration to act. But in 2011, the agency rejected a petition, filed nearly a decade before, to do so after hearing opposition from the Department of Health and Human Services. It appears now that change could come from Congress, where bills have been introduced in both the House and Senate. In March, Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, a Republican presidential candidate with a libertarian bent, joined Democratic Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and Corey Booker of New Jersey in introducing legislation that would change marijuana to a Schedule II drug. That would mean the federal government recognizes its medical value but that the drug can be abused, much like prescription opiates. The 23 states that have approved medical marijuana would also be protected from federal intervention. The Obama Administration has made it clear that it would let those states play by their own rules. But his successor is not obligated to do likewise. More states could soon join the 23 — even deep-red places like Kansas and Missouri are taking a look. Pot bills went further in Kansas this year than they ever have. Missouri last year passed a Republican-pushed bill legalizing a low-THC cannabidiol for treatment of severe epileptic seizures. There’s still plenty of opposition. Opponents typically argue that conventional drugs are safer and that “medical marijuana” is simply an incremental ploy to get recreational pot. Indeed, in California and elsewhere it’s become common for doctors to set up shop in or next to dispensaries specifically to diagnose dubious conditions like pain from old high school football injuries. “You’re not seeing a lot of medical support for marijuana and these state legislatures are giving pot a free rein,” said Eric Voth, a Topeka physician and longtime marijuana opponent who heads the Institute on Global Drug Policy and speaks on behalf of the national Drug Free America. A common volley from advocates is that doctors who oppose marijuana research are probably trying to protect the prescription drug business. But if the government should loosen its grip, Mahmoud A. ElSohly would instantly become the country’s best-known pot farmer. He’s got 12 acres up and growing in the middle of campus at the University of Mississippi in Oxford, where the spring has been warm and rainy. A scientist and professor, ElSohly heads the federal government’s marijuana patch. His crop is where any research project approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration would get its plants. An Overland Park man with ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s Diesease, said legalization of marijuana for medical purposes is long overdue. He’s 55, father of five and grandfather of six, and uses marijuana to help with pain and spasticity. He splits his time at a second home in Colorado where marijuana is legal. “I used to take 30 to 50 pills a day — OxyContin, oxycodone, hydrocodone,” said the man, who asked that his name not be used. “Now I’m down to zero and not zoned-out on opiates all the time.” Cannabis chemistry So these cannabinoids and cannabidiol (CBD) — what do they do? Scientists say humans have a unique communication system in the brain. When receptors are triggered by cannabinoids, they transmit signals throughout the body. This “endocannabinoid system” provides the infrastructure for marijuana’s effect on humans Sometimes that’s simply the euphoric feeling of getting high. But researchers increasingly find that those chemical charges may go through the body and kill cancer cells, ease neuropathic pain, calm seizures from epilepsy, help control blood sugar, relieve glaucoma’s intraocular pressure and perform a host of other benefits. All this has changed minds — perhaps most famously Sanjay Gupta, CNN’s chief medical correspondent and a neurosurgeon. For years an opponent of medical marijuana, Gupta in August of 2013 apologized for misleading the country. “We have been terribly and systematically misled for nearly 70 years in the United States, and I apologize for my own role in that,” he said. The new information has also led to a changed political climate in which polls now show most Americans favoring legalization of marijuana. The findings prompt even longtime marijuana opponents to acknowledge their promise. Voth says that something called “Charlotte’s Web,” a cannabidiol with little of the buzz component of marijuana, appears to be effective in treating children with epilepsy. But he and others reject many other claims about marijuana. In December, Samuel T. Wilkinson at Yale University’s School of Medicine released a study that showed treatment of PTSD suffered when patients smoke marijuana, although some patients swear by it. Wilkinson previously released a paper that linked marijuana use to schizophrenia. And while the American Glaucoma Society says that marijuana eases intraocular pressure, the relief lasts only three hours. So patients need to smoke several times a day. The society advises against marijuana use as a treatment. Hard to imagine the FDA would ever approve “crude marijuana” — joints and bong hits that put smoke in the lungs. But derivatives can come in many smokeless forms where the components and dosages can be better controlled. That said, many patients would say don’t cut short the healing power of a good doobie. Here’s a summary of other research: Multiple sclerosis The Multiple Sclerosis Society says studies suggest that a marijuana extract, usually administered in a spray beneath the tongue, may lessen symptoms of spasticity, pain related to spasticity and frequent urination. But a clinical trial in Great Britain provided unclear results. An instrument used to measure spasticity showed little improvement even as participants reported, anecdotally, improved spasticity and less pain. “In other words,” the study said, “participants reported feeling improvements that could not be confirmed by the study physicians.” John Zajicek, a professor at Plymouth University Peninsula Schools of Medicine and Dentistry, led a study to evaluate oral cannabis extract in treating 400 patients. Results showed stiffness lessened by twofold in the group taking the marijuana compared to the placebo. Improvements were also noted in body pain, spasms and sleep quality. The American Academy of Neurology recognizes the potential, but does not support legalization of marijuana treatment. Epilepsy There’s been a migration of parents to treating their children with marijuana. The poster child for this movement was Charlotte Figi, a toddler who suffered Dravet Syndrome, a genetic disorder that can cause epilepsy. “If I were Charlotte Figi’s parents and lived in Colorado, I would have done exactly what they did,” Orrin Devinsky, a professor of neurology and neurosurgery, and director of the Comprehensive Epilepsy Center at New York University, says on the Epilepsy Foundation’s website. In 2013, researchers in the neurology department at Stanford University released a survey of 19 parents who opted for cannabis to treat a child’s seizures. These parents, on average, had previously tried 12 approved anti-epileptic drugs with little or no satisfaction. Sixteen, or 84 percent, reported reduction in their childen’s seizure frequency while taking CBD. Two said their child became seizure-free with eight reporting a greater than 80 percent improvement. “Parents,” researchers wrote, “report a high rate of success in reducing seizure frequency with this treatment. We can not verify the doses or the children’s response to cannabis. Nonetheless, the overall positive results on seizure control suggest that further studies are warranted.” Cancer The National Cancer Institute says preclinical trials on mice suggest cannabinoids may inhibit tumor growth and block the development of blood vessels that feed tumors. Studies also show that cannabinoids may protect against inflammation of the colon and may reduce the risk of colon cancer. Another study, on mice, showed that a compound called delta-9-THC killed the cells in liver cancer and may have the same effect on lung cancer and breast cancer cells. A laboratory study of cannabidiol in estrogen cells showed that it caused cancer cell death while leaving normal cells alone. Despite advances in pharmacology, vomiting and nausea associated with chemotherapy remain a distressing part of cancer treatment. Trials show that patients experience less of those effects with marijuana derivatives and smoked marijuana. Still, the cancer institute and the American Cancer Society say more proof is needed before they recommend marijuana. Crohn’s disease A prospective trial at Meir Medical Center in Israel showed complete remission in five of 11 patients suffering Crohn’s disease who were given cannabis twice daily. Authors of the study said it had been reported for years that marijuana lessened painful symptoms of the inflammatory bowel disease, but the finding had not been proven in a controlled trial. The study compared 21 patients who did not respond to conventional treatment. Half were given marijuana cigarettes. The other half were given a placebo — marijuana cigarettes with the THC removed. The results, published in Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology, showed improvement in the cannabis group. Those subjects also reported improved sleep and appetite. Alzheimer’s disease In findings published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, researchers at the University of South Florida say delta-9 THC may prevent the abnormal production of amyloid beta, the culprit found in most aging brains that may cause the disease. “Also, the low concentrations of THC enhance mitrochondrial function, which is needed to supply energy to a healthy brain,” said Chuanhai Cao, a neuroscientist at the Byrd Alzheimer’s Institute and USF’s college of pharmacy. “This shows great potential.” Old cure To all of this, William Brook O’Shaughnessy might say, “Well, yeah.” O’Shaughnessy, born in 1809, was an Irish physician famous for his early work in India using cannabis to treat rheumatism, infant convulsions and chronic pain. He is widely considered the man who introduced marijuana into modern medicine. Who knows, without him, two cannabinoids — dronabinol and nabilone — approved by the FDA may not be in use today. Advocates are pushing for more and they are not buying the argument that marijuana can be dangerous and abused. Look at the prescription opiates, such as OxyContin, that are not only addictive but blamed for many deaths, they say. Ethan Nadelmann, executive director of the Drug Policy Alliance, said the argument against marijuana as medicine is a combination of politics and business — “It’s not a medicine if it’s not made by pharmaceutical companies or approved by the FDA.” As for his organization’s work, he said: “We’re not doing this because we’re pro-marijuana. We are pro-responsible drug policy.” At this point, even Eric Voth thinks change is coming. “There is tremendous pressure out there for medical marijuana,” Voth said. “So no, I won’t be surprised when it happens.” To reach Donald Bradley, call 816-234-4182 or send email to firstname.lastname@example.org. ——— ©2015 The Kansas City Star (Kansas City, Mo.)

Current ESPN radio personality honored as an ‘Outstanding American’
Former NFL player Mike Golic inducted into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame
By Nathan Ruiz, Staff Writer | Jun 6, 2015Mike Golic grew up in Buckeye country, but from the age of 11, his heart belonged to Notre Dame. Golic played football for four years and wrestled for two for the Fighting Irish before an eight-year NFL career with the Houston Oilers, Philadelphia Eagles and Miami Dolphins. After he retired, he joined ESPN, eventually forming the notable “Mike and Mike” morning radio show with Mike Greenberg. The pair has now been together for 16 years. This weekend, Golic was inducted into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame in Stillwater as an honorary “Outstanding American.” In his rise from a boy in Ohio, to NFL player, to ESPN personality, his biggest influence was not only on the field, but also in his home: his father, Bob, a former Canadian Football League player, who died in 2013. I was never one that looked up to pro athletes. I always looked up to my dad. I tell kids that, as well. Instead of looking up to an athlete that can you can see on the field but you don’t really know as a person, find someone closer to you, someone that you know as a person. My dad was always, always my role model in the way he conducted himself both on the field of play and coaching us, and then certainly as a husband and a father. More and more, I hear my wife or my kids say, “You’re just like your father.” You joke about that as you get older, that you turn into your parents, or for me, my father, but I couldn’t think of a better compliment. I’ll catch myself with his mannerisms or using a line that he used, but I’m happy to because I think he was a great role model. My parents really stressed education with us. You knew you had to make times for your studies because if you didn’t have your grades where they needed to be, you weren’t going to play sports. You definitely learned to manage your time. That’s one thing I think sports gives you, the ability to manage your time. I think if you look at most athletes, a lot of times they have their best grades during their sports. Now, going to college, it’d be one sport, but a lot of times, you have your best grades during that sport because your time is so managed for you, where free time can be the enemy a little bit at times in the offseason. At all the places that offered me, I made sure when I talked to the coaches, that they were OK with me wrestling as well. I would miss some of the wrestling season, obviously, but then when I would wrestle, that would be during winter workouts, but all you had to do was tell a coach “Come watch my wrestling practice, and you know I’m getting just as good or a better workout going to wrestling practice.” It wasn’t an issue with any of them that I was able to do that as well. I was doing a sport and I was staying in shape and I loved it. My brother Bob had gone (to Notre Dame) in ’75. I was only 11 years old. When you’re from Ohio and you’re highly recruited like we were and you don’t go to Ohio State, you’re kind of shunned or looked upon as a traitor, so my brother was first in that. When I was 11 and I’d go there, I got to meet some of those guys. They seemed like giant heroes to me when I was 11 years old and 12 years old and going to Notre Dame. My brother Greg is just a year and a half older than me and one grade up from me, so he went to Notre Dame as well. When he went there and I’d go to see him when I was senior in high school, now all those athletes that seemed like big sports gods to me when I was 11, now I looked at them and I said, ‘I could be one of them.’ I got to see Notre Dame in a couple of different lights. I know everybody has an allegiance and loves their school, and I’m no different. I’ll bleed blue and gold for the rest of my life. I only wrestled my sophomore and junior year. Freshman year, I still needed to gain more weight, so after the football season, I really just concentrated on lifting a lot to gain some weight. Senior year, there was nothing I could do – I had to prepare for the draft. I had to go to the combine and do all that. It was hard, but I was doing it to achieve a goal of making it to the NFL, something I knew I wanted to do at that point. It wasn’t like I could go on to anything else wrestling-wise, and football-wise, you could. So because I was focused so much on that goal, wrestling I knew wasn’t part of it, but I certainly miss wrestling. I loved wrestling easily just as much as football, no doubt about it. I was always one of those, again, from my father, when you’re a young person going into a situation where older people are there with experience, it’s keep your mouth shut and your eyes and your ears open. You learn from them, and that’s what I did. I got drafted by the Houston Oilers, and I was playing D-line and their nose tackle, Mike Stensrud was his name, had been playing for a while. He was very, very good to me in taking me under his wing. I watched him, how he acted as a professional and how he handled practice and how he did what he did. He was very good with showing me how to be a professional football player. I wish more players would do that. I think in this day and age, unfortunately, too many players come into a sport thinking they know more than they really do. Reggie White, I believe, was the best. God rest his soul. I think he was the greatest defensive end to ever play the game. I know others may disagree, but certainly, as we like to put it, in the team picture. There’s just a few, but I would have him right there, without a doubt. Now, I say, ‘Without a doubt.’ If you asked, “Who I played the most with as the greatest player?” it’d be Reggie. But I can’t say, ‘Without a doubt,” because I played with another guy, but only for one year. My last year in Miami, I played with Dan Marino, and obviously, Dan’s pretty darn good as well. But Reggie, I played with him for six years. I played with him a little longer. Randall Cunningham, our quarterback (with the Eagles), had a show, and I did a little segment called Golic’s Got it, which was kind of a humoristic look at our upcoming opponent. Like, if we were going to play the Cleveland Browns, I would go to a dog pound since that’s what they were known for. I’d mess around with dogs, just kind of a funny thing. Right place, right time. It won a mid-regional Emmy for that goofy stuff. I guess ESPN took notice of that and asked me in the offseason if I wouldn’t mind coming in and doing some things for them, so I did. I basically started a relationship with them while I was still playing. Then, when I was done playing, I did some different pieces for ‘em. I started calling college games for ESPN and for ABC, and then one thing led to another, and all of a sudden, I’m doing a national radio show for 16 years. It certainly worked out pretty well. I met Greeny literally five minutes before (a show). It wasn’t even his job. He was just filling in for a day. I never knew him, and I didn’t know who he was. I just remembered — he is what he is. He’s a fan. He was never really an athlete, but he’s incredibly smart. He went to Northwestern, the Medill School of Journalism. He’s incredibly smart and incredibly good at what he does. But we were opposites. One thing I probably thought when I met him is, ‘We are really opposite.’ There’s no doubt about that. I loved wrestling easily as much as I loved football, so to be recognized at all by the Wrestling Hall of Fame is just fantastic. Listen, I would be lying if I didn’t say I’d love to be going in the Wrestling Hall of Fame as like a two-time national champ, one loss in my college wrestling career, but I’m not. I wasn’t that type of wrestler, but I always loved wrestling. And any time I could, I talked about wrestling, and any time I could help the sport, I would help the sport. I’ll always stay close to it. When they told me that they were going to recognize me for this, I was completely humbled that they would think enough of me to put me in the Hall of Fame.

A number of vintage television programs dominate new DVD releases this week, including complete-series sets of “The Saint” and “The Nanny.”
Vintage TV series dominate new DVD releases this week
Chris Hicks, Deseret News | Jun 2, 2015Roger Moore as “The Saint” and Fran Drescher as “The Nanny” lead the new DVD releases of television series, which are dominated by vintage programs from the 1960s, ’70s, ’80s and ’90s. “The Saint: The Complete Series” (Timeless/itv/DVD, 1962-69, b/w and color, 33 discs, 118 episodes, audio commentaries). Roger Moore warmed up to his 1970s and ’80s role as James Bond with this amusing British series based on the Leslie Charteris novels about the suave womanizing thief Simon Templar, who prides himself on stealing from rich criminals. Nicknamed “The Saint,” Templar is often described as a sort of Robin Hood, though as far as I can see he keeps all the money for himself. He also helps the dogged Inspector Teal (Ivor Dean) put the crooks he robs behind bars, though Teal would love to put Templar there as well. Later episodes take on more of a “spy” vibe in this engaging adventure series that has Templar globetrotting through exotic locations, with the first 71 episodes in black and white, and the remaining 47 in color. One episode has a gag about Templar being mistaken for James Bond, and Lois Maxwell, who played Miss Moneypenny in the Bond films, guests in two episodes. Other guests include “Bond girls” Shirley Eaton and Honor Blackman, as well as Julie Christie, Edward Woodward, Donald Sutherland, Oliver Reed, Samantha Eggar and Jean Marsh. “The Nanny: The Complete Series” (Shout!/Sony/DVD, 1993-99, 19 discs, 146 episodes, audio commentaries, featurettes). Fran Drescher stars in this popular sitcom as Fran Fine, the pushy, nasal-voiced but charming title character, who falls into the job of caring for the three children of a widowed British Broadway producer (Charles Shaughnessy), ingratiating herself into high society with street smarts and blunt honesty. A surprising roster of guest stars includes Elizabeth Taylor, Bette Midler, David Letterman, Jane Seymour, Dan Aykroyd, Rita Moreno, Ben Vereen, Bob Barker, Hugh Grant, Donald O’Connor, Joan Collins, Jay Leno, Jon Stewart, Roseanne, Celine Dion, Elton John, Chevy Chase, Ray Romano and Whoopi Goldberg. “Hill Street Blues: Season Five” (Shout!/DVD, 1984-85, five discs, 23 episodes). This early series from Stephen Bochco (“NYPD Blue,” “L.A. Law”) is a first-rate ensemble look at the lives and cases of officers in an urban police precinct, with stories that mix high drama, tragedy and comedy. Daniel J. Travanti and Veronica Hamel lead the cast. “The Wonder Years: Season Three” (StarVista/DVD, 1989-90, four discs, 17 episodes, featurettes). Aimed at baby boomers that grew up in the 1960s, this half-hour comedy-drama set in ’60s suburbia follows the ups and downs of teenager Kevin Arnold (Fred Savage, with Daniel Stern providing the adult Arnold’s narration). This season has Kevin in the eighth grade with episodes about football, a school play and, of course, teenage crushes. “Welcome Back, Kotter: The Complete Third Season” (Shout!/DVD, 1977-78, four discs, 27 episodes). Very broad sitcom stars Gabe Kaplan as Gabe Kotter, a high school teacher at the Brooklyn school he attended, helping remedial students known as “sweathogs,” with John Travolta chief among them. This season has Gabe and his wife Julie (Marcia Strassman) becoming parents to twins. “Major Crimes: The Complete Third Season” (Warner/TNT/DVD, 2014-15, four discs, 19 episodes, deleted scenes, bloopers). A spinoff of “The Closer,” this police procedural stars Mary McDonnell (“Dances With Wolves,” “Battlestar Galactica”) as the head of LAPD’s (fictional) Major Crimes Division. This season sees the return of Tom Berenger as the chief’s husband. (Season 4 begins June 8.) “Murdoch Mysteries: The Movies” (Acorn/DVD, 2004-05, three discs, three movies). Three Canadian TV movies that predate the “Murdoch Mysteries” series about an 1890s Toronto detective using then-new forensic science, with the characters played by different actors. Peter Outerbridge is Murdoch and Colm Meaney, a regular on two “Star Trek” series, is his boss, Brackenreid. “Sons of Liberty” (History/Lionsgate/Blu-ray/DVD/Digital, 2015, two discs, three episodes, featurettes). This five-hour miniseries fictionalizes the early events of the American Revolution that led to the title group becoming activists in the fight to achieve freedom for the colonies from British rule. “Ray Donovan: Season Two” (Showtime/CBS/Blu-ray/DVD, 2014, four discs, 12 episodes, audio commentaries, featurettes). The title character is a Los Angeles-based Hollywood fixer played with intensity by Liev Schreiber. This season his ex-con father (Jon Voight) is causing problems and his wife and children are slipping away. Guests include Ann-Margret, Elliott Gould, Sherilyn Fenn and Hank Azaria. (Beware of Showtime’s usual R-rated excesses.) “Hello Ladies: The Complete Series and Movie” (HBO/DVD, 2013, three discs, eight episodes, TV movie, deleted scenes, featurette). Raunchy HBO sitcom starring British comic Stephen Merchant and based on his stand-up comedy routines about being an English bachelor in Los Angeles trying to find Ms. Right. Includes the TV-movie that came after the series was canceled. (Nicole Kidman has a cameo in the movie.) “Jurassic: Monsters of the Deep” (BBC/DVD, 2015). Zoologist Nigel Marven leads a documentary crew (along with computer-graphic re-creations) to explore underwater life from seven of the world’s time periods. From the folks who created “Walking With Dinosaurs.” “Max & Ruby: Sharing & Caring” (Nickelodeon/Paramount/DVD, 2012, four episodes). Four episodes, each with three stories, gleaned from this popular animated series for preschoolers, with lessons on kindness and listening, among other social skills.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Fortunately Arik Armstead has broader shoulders than most.When the 49ers’ first-round pick begins his NFL journey this fall, the 6-foot-7, 292-pound defensive end will also be living out the football dreams of his older brother, who saw his promising career cut short by health issues last summer.“I idolized him and wanted to grow up and be like him someday,” Arik, 21, said...
49ers’ Armstead living out NFL dream for brother, too
By Jimmy Durkin, Associated Press | May 17, 2015SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Fortunately Arik Armstead has broader shoulders than most. When the 49ers’ first-round pick begins his NFL journey this fall, the 6-foot-7, 292-pound defensive end will also be living out the football dreams of his older brother, who saw his promising career cut short by health issues last summer. “I idolized him and wanted to grow up and be like him someday,” Arik, 21, said of Armond Armstead, 24. An All-American and four-star recruit in high school, Armond was a contributor from the moment he stepped on the USC campus in 2008. Also a defensive lineman, Armond was a starter by his sophomore year with the Trojans, but two heart attacks by age 23 ended his NFL aspirations. “God had a different plan for Armond,” said their father Guss Armstead. “I think part of Arik’s drive is to make his brother proud and continue to grow as a player and carry on that legacy.” Before Arik rose to stardom at Oregon or Pleasant Grove High in Elk Grove, he was the kid brother who Armond said was “always happy and ready to play.” He tagged along on his brother’s recruiting trips, hoping to follow in Armond’s footsteps. Now the roles are reversed a bit. Armond joined Arik in San Diego for his pre-draft preparations and has dedicated much of his time to his younger brother. “He wants to take the time he has and pour that into his brother,” Guss Armstead said. Joe Cattolico, who coached both brothers at Pleasant Grove, says that brotherly connection will push both of them to success. “I think he feels like he’s getting to do some of the things that his brother was kept from doing and I think he’ll use that as a positive,” Cattolico said of Arik. “His brother’s going to be a very successful person in life as well, he’s just going to be doing it in different avenues.” Last month, Armond reached an undisclosed settlement with USC after suing the school, alleging its use of pain-killing drugs led to his heart issues and cost him a potentially lucrative career. He suffered his first heart attack while at USC in 2011 and wasn’t medically cleared to play his senior year. He went undrafted and spent a year in the Canadian Football League to prove his worth—and his health. He was an all-star for the Toronto Argonauts and part of a Grey Cup championship team. That caught the eye of the New England Patriots, who signed him after that season. But Armond’s health issues resurfaced. He underwent surgery to repair a hole in his heart, and a subsequent infection caused him to miss the 2013 season. After suffering a second heart attack, he decided it was time to retire in July 2014 at age 23. Armond said he’s in good health now and had no issues working out with his brother during his pre-draft preparations. He’s researching graduate schools while serving an internship with a housing development company in Sacramento, but prefers to keep the attention steered toward Arik. “It’s not really about me,” Armond said. “I’m just excited for him more than anything and proud of him to be able to come this far.” In Arik, Armond sees “a bigger version of all the skill sets that I have.” Arik has two inches on Armond’s 6-5 build and room to exceed his last playing weight of 305 pounds. “It’s funny to say with somebody the size that he is and the maturity that he is, but he’s a baby,” Cattolico said of Arik. “He’s got some growing and some physical maturing to do.” Both brothers played basketball throughout high school and Arik extended that into his first two years at Oregon. That’s not a surprise considering their father’s background. Guss Armstead played basketball at Sacramento State, coached briefly and now runs 2 The Hoop Basketball Services. He’s trained NBA players such as Warriors’ center Festus Ezeli, New Orleans Pelicans’ forward Ryan Anderson and Los Angeles Clippers’ forward Matt Barnes. “Arik was the kid that was, ‘Dad, if you’ve got a 7 o’clock workout, wake me up because I want to go’,” Guss said. “He was always the guy that was attached to my hip.” Cattolico witnessed that work ethic from both Arik and Armond and easily raves about the entire Armstead family, which were among the first people he met when he moved to Elk Grove to begin coaching at Pleasant Grove. “This is reflective of his whole family, but Arik’s one of the best young people I’ve ever been around in 20 years of high school education,” Cattolico said. The brothers share the same qualities of toughness. Armond played through a shoulder injury at USC, possibly to his detriment considering the potential affects the pain-killer Toradol had on him. (His lawsuit alleged his heart attack was caused by being overtreated with the drug and he was not told of its FDA warnings of cardiovascular risk). Arik played with an ankle injury at times last year at Oregon and, as a high school senior, played 13 games with an injured shoulder. “He could’ve shut it down and gotten healthy for college,” Cattolico said. “But he knew it made a big difference to his teammates and to the program in general.” That type of dedication to others is one way these brothers remain connected. If Armond still struggles with his own loss of football, he doesn’t show it. Big brother is too busy admiring how little brother has taken advantage of his talent through smart choices and hard work. “For it all to come together for him,” Armond said, “it’s really exciting to see.” ——— ©2015 San Jose Mercury News (San Jose, Calif.)

Executive Q&A: Phillips Murrah Director Tim Kline was helping his dad teach a bankruptcy law course at Oklahoma City University when Penn Square Bank collapsed in July 1982. He and his father — the late David A. Kline Jr., an experienced bankruptcy judge who’d helped promote the 1978 Bankruptcy Reform Act — subsequently went into practice together.
Executive Q&A: Penn Square Bank collapse sparks counselor's career in bankruptcy law
By Paula Burkes, Business Writer | Apr 12, 2015The morning of the 1982 Penn Square Bank collapse, Phillips Murrah Director Tim Kline — then a young general litigation attorney — was asked by his firm to call on Oklahoma City oilman Carl Swan, who was a director of the bank. “It was the Monday following the July 4th weekend, and I was supposed to be off,” said Kline, who remembers he wasn’t too happy about the assignment. In their meeting, Kline asked Swan if the bank was OK and Swan, in his notorious gruff manner, reported that it was; that the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation agreed to capitalize millions more and give the bank more time, he said. But when Kline arrived home and flipped on his TV, he learned the FDIC had pulled the plug on Penn Square Bank. The infamous bankruptcy is what sparked a nearly 33-year career in bankruptcy law for Kline, whose late father and former Assistant U.S. Attorney David A. Kline Jr. served 14 years as a bankruptcy judge. At the time of the collapse, Kline was helping his dad teach a bankruptcy law course at Oklahoma City University — largely on the 1978 Bankruptcy Reform Act, which the senior Kline had helped promote. Tim Kline never intended to go into bankruptcy law but, following the oil bust, circumstances unfolded that way, he said. With so much demand for bankruptcy work, his dad left the bench and they formed Kline & Kline in February 1983, where they worked together for more than 25 years. Kline in 2011 joined Phillips Murrah, where he continues to specialize in bankruptcy law. From his offices on the 13th floor of the Corporate Tower, Kline, 65, sat down recently to talk about his life and career. This is an edited transcript: Q: Tell us about your roots. A: Of course, my father was an attorney and my mother was a homemaker. I’m the middle child of their three children. My brother is six years older and my sister is eight years younger. My father used to joke that he managed to raise three only children. But we were, and still are, close. In fact, we three and our mother, 94, all live within walking distance from one another on several hundred acres we bought in 1981 in the Jones Public Schools District in eastern Oklahoma County, 10 miles east of I-35, where we have dogs, chickens and horses. My brother-in-law raises cattle. When I was a bachelor, my home was like an overgrown cabin. But since Alyssa and I married, we’ve reinvented it three times. It’s three-storied and our second story overlooks a lake. Q: Where did you go to school? A: In elementary school, I was a Mayfair Chipmunk. We lived near 50th and May when Mayfair was a brand-new neighborhood. In the sixth- and seventh-grades, I attended Casady, after my brother was recruited there to play baseball. Once he graduated and went to OU on a baseball scholarship — and I lost my ride to school — I transferred to Putnam City, where I graduated. Growing up, I played baseball, football and basketball, but my siblings were far better athletes. My sister went to OCU on a tennis scholarship. I was into politics. At 7, I remember sitting up and crying when Adlai Stevenson lost; in 1960, I got to hear JFK speak in the municipal auditorium; and before I could vote, I was the Ward 1 campaign chairman for Eugene McCarthy. I also enjoyed speech, debate and plays. My favorite role was the lead my sophomore year in “Look Heavenward Angel.” Q: What were some of your first jobs and first cars? A: As a youth, I worked at the municipal ball park. My sophomore year in high school, I threw the first papers of the now-defunct Oklahoma Journal. By the summer of my senior year, I graduated to writing obits and writing some Friday night football stories. My freshman year of college, I was awarded a scholarship to UCO. My father told me if I took it, he’d get me a car, though it wasn’t a very nice car. It was a used light blue Ford Fairlane. When I was a junior, and doing well in school at OU, he bought me a purple Plymouth Road Runner. Q: Did you always plan on being an attorney? A: There was a time I considered becoming a philosophy teacher. At OU, I studied under the legendary J. Clayton Feaver and considered getting a Ph.D. in philosophy. I’d earned a graduate minor in it, along with a bachelor’s and master’s in polisci. But instead, I wound up taking the law school entrance exam. I like the problem solving in law, and helping people where they have a practical need. During law school, I interned with the U.S. Attorneys office and worked at the Redlands Racket Club and OKC Tennis Center. I got to play tennis with Colin Robertson. Before my father and I opened our own firm, I clerked for over three years for U.S. federal judge Luther Bohanon. He liked having me in the courtroom with him, so I got to see a lot of good lawyers at work in big trials. I worked the next three years for the firm of Jimmy Linn, a west Texas litigator who was a heavy hitter on the national level. Q: What do you like about practicing bankruptcy law? A: My work is really about avoiding bankruptcy as such. Whether I represent the debtor, creditor or a trustee, I try to bring together parties who are in financial stress and help them clarify what common interests are involved and how to maximize financial recovery. My goal is to do the most for the most people in the most efficient manner possible. Of course, like in all things in life, it takes two to tango. Sometimes, people aren’t cooperative and we have to go to a Plan B scenario and invoke legal remedies and be as confrontational as necessary. I’m as nice as the other side will allow. Q: How did you meet your wife? A: Alyssa is a native Canadian. We met at Christmastime 1976, when I went to British Columbia to visit relatives and friends, but then she was only a punk teenager. Her family and I kept in touch over the years and in the summer of ’85, she called to say she and her folks were going to Seattle and would I like to meet them there. She was 23; I was 36. I spent a couple days in Seattle, but had to fly back to Albuquerque for a big case. Three weeks later, I flew to British Columbia, where we wed and spent our honeymoon. She was shocked that it was 100 degrees in Oklahoma City, when our flight arrived home at 11 p.m. on Sept. 1. The next morning, she joked about getting an annulment. But this August, we will have been married 30 years. Alyssa earned an education degree at UCO and taught elementary school, before she had our daughters whom she home schools. After the girls were born, Alyssa’s parents moved to Oklahoma City. We’ve lost her mother, but her father lives in a retirement community. He’s 94 and was over for Easter.

Oklahoma football: Canada-to-OU recruiting pipeline getting stronger
Jason Kersey | Apr 9, 2015NORMAN -- Josiah St. John hosted defensive tackle recruit Neville Gallimore on Gallimore's official visit last season, and St. John noticed something strange happening. "I felt that Canadian connection," St. John said. "We were hanging out and talking, and the accent came back out. I started talking like I used to talk before." St. John, a Toronto native and offensive tackle, became the first Canadian-born player to see game action for Oklahoma last season. Gallimore, a four-star prospect, signed with OU two months ago out of Canada Prep Football Academy in St. Catharines, Ontario. The school plays a schedule of top high school football teams from the United States. "I have a lot of people reaching out to me saying they're excited about the Canadian pipeline that's starting here, so more Canadians want to come here," St. John said. "I feel like as of right now, any top Canadian prospect would love to come to Oklahoma just because of the Canadian players who are coming here." St. John, a senior, is currently atop the OU depth chart at left tackle. He signed with the Sooners out of Trinity Valley Community College in Texas in the recruiting class of 2013 and redshirted his first season in Norman. Oklahoma has to replace both of its offensive tackles from last season. Tyrus Thompson and Daryl Williams are both expected to be drafted in the NFL Draft later this month. Gallimore was ranked as the No. 83 overall prospect in the recruiting class of 2015, according to Rivals. He was the Sooners’ highest-ranked 2015 signee and is expected to compete for playing time immediately after he arrives on campus this summer.
The open part of practice is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. The first 500 students who arrive will receive a free hot dog and water, with all remaining hot dogs and waters available for 50 cents each.
Oklahoma football notebook: Friday's practice open for students
By Jason Kersey | Apr 9, 2015Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops will open the team portion of Friday’s practice to OU students with a current ID. The open part of practice is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. This is the third time in the last year Stoops has done this, beginning the week of last year’s spring game. The Sooners also invited students to part of one practice during the preseason last fall. The first 500 students who arrive will receive a free hot dog and water, with all remaining hot dogs and waters available for 50 cents each. Students will be invited onto the field to meet the players after practice ends. KNIGHT: COMPETING FOR JOB ‘A PRIVILEGE’ Trevor Knight is the most experienced quarterback — by far — on the Oklahoma football roster. He was the 2014 Sugar Bowl’s Most Valuable Player. But as the Sooners near the end of spring practices, Knight is still competing with Baker Mayfield, Cody Thomas and Justice Hansen for the starting job. After inconsistent play last season, capped by a dreadful performance against Clemson in the Russell Athletic Bowl, Knight is fighting to hold onto the job that was solidly his only a year ago. “Honestly, it’s a privilege to be able to compete,” Knight said. “To be alongside Baker and Cody and Justice, it’s an honor. It’s an honor to come and wear these colors.” Asked if he feels like he needs to perform well in Saturday’s spring game, Knight said he isn’t worried about impressing anyone on the outside. “I don’t necessarily owe anybody anything,” Knight said. “I owe myself the fact that I should go out there and play as hard as I can and have fun with it. Hopefully, that shows up.” PERINE, SHEPARD WON’T PLAY MUCH Stoops said this week that he isn’t sure how he will handle his running back situation in Saturday’s spring game. Joe Mixon won’t play as part of his suspension for punching a female student in the face before last season, and junior Keith Ford is suspended indefinitely. “I’ll be honest, I’m not real keen on seeing Samaje (Perine) run a whole bunch,” Stoops said. Perine led the Big 12 Conference with 1,713 rushing yards and 21 touchdowns last season as a true freshman. Stoops also said he didn’t expect senior wide receiver Sterling Shepard to play much, either. Shepard missed most of the second half of last season with a groin injury, but still led the team with 51 catches and 970 receiving yards. CANADA-TO-OU PIPELINE GETTING STRONGER Josiah St. John hosted defensive tackle recruit Neville Gallimore on Gallimore’s official visit last season, and St. John noticed something strange happening. “I felt that Canadian connection,” St. John said. “We were hanging out and talking, and the accent came back out. I started talking like I used to talk before.” St. John, a Toronto native and offensive tackle, became the first Canadian-born player to see game action for Oklahoma last season.

Big-time back signs big-dog deal
Dustan Sedgwick, Associated Press | Mar 20, 2015Smiles as big hardly appear unless warranted, and a childhood dream becoming reality is a perfect reason for grinning from ear-to-ear. Central Missouri Mules running back LaVance Taylor, smiling wide, inked a professional deal in February to play with the Ottawa Redblacks of the Canadian Football League. “It’s something I dreamed of all my life,” he said. “The fact that it’s happening is surreal.” The Mules legend rewrote history during the 2014-15 season by rushing for a school-record 1,918 rushing yards, racking up a school-record 2,618 all-purpose yards, ranking atop NCAA Division-II athletes with 218 all-purpose yards per game. His efforts placed him among candidates vying for the Harlon Hill Trophy, an award given to the best player in D-II football. Taylor is Central Missouri’s sixth player under head coach Jim Svoboda to sign a professional football contract. Ranking atop the annals of school history was hardly a motivator to Taylor’s drive. He began at 5 years old playing in a flag football league in Raytown, a rough area clinging to Kansas City’s outskirts. Cracking shoulder pads and weaving between opposing tacklers quickly became an addiction. Even during time off the field, Taylor spent time playing catch and running in one-on-one drills with his father, LaVoid. “He used to throw me the ball and run after me,” LaVance said. “I used to do moves on him.” The duo partook in weekly Monday Night Football broadcasts and LaVance mimicked pregame highlights in his living room. Football immediately became LaVance’s one true love. On his way to high school his workout routines became more rigorous, his work ethic more entrenched and his goals grew seemingly exponentially. But playing at Raytown High School had its distractions, LaVance said. “I never even thought I was going to make it to college, he said. “It wasn’t because my talent (but) my situation I was in.” The star’s friends tugged at LaVance to join them in passing blunts and boosting department store merchandise – some of the milder illegal activities his crew took part in. Tempted, if only to fit in with Raytown’s roughneck crowd, Taylor shied away. He feared being caught or arrested, either of which would result in termination from the high school football team. “I got a lot of friends that do a lot of crazy stuff,” he said. “I could say that football saved my life. ... I loved (football) so much that I would do anything to keep playing.” By staying away from the law, working harder than any of his teammates and loving so passionately the gridiron, LaVance busted out with the Raytown Bluejays. LaVance set the school’s single-season rushing record as a senior and was a third-team All-State selection, despite his squad losing to crosstown rival Raytown South in the Class 5, District 10 Tournament in 2010. “I hate Ray South still more than I hate Northwest (Missouri),” he said. “They beat us every year.” Central Missouri’s coaching staff plucked LaVance from Raytown in the spring and he immediately had an impact. Taylor, who cried tears of joy upon stepping onto Kennedy Field for the first time, led the pass-heavy Mules with 630 rushing yards on 99 carries. He bettered his numbers in each of the following seasons and finished his career second among Central Missouri running backs with 3,941 rushing yards. “It’s a luxury as a coach when your best players also happen to be your hardest workers,” Svoboda said. “It’s no accident that he leaves this program so highly decorated and having rewritten the record book. Svoboda and LaVance went through the signing process as a team. “He wanted me to make the best decision possible for me and my family,” LaVance said. “He was there the whole time.” The Redblacks begin its preseason slate against Hamilton in early June. Prior to seeing playing time, LaVance said he expects to be the low man on the totem pole, but also said he understands his role as a rookie. “You’re right back at the bottom,” he said. “I’m going to take that mindset in there and learn as much as I can.” LaVance said he spoke with Redblacks offensive coordinator Jordan Maksymic, who said LaVance will primarily be spotted as a scat back and slot receiver, something he’s familiar with. The Canadian game, however, has its quirks, primarily with four major differences from American football: 12-man teams, wider and longer fields, no motion penalties and three offensive chances. And no golden cleats. “Other than that, when I go watch film it looks the same to me,” LaVance said. “It’s not as crazy as I thought it was.” Ottawa’s three-day minicamp is set for April 27. “I’m about to go up there, have my nose to the grind and really get after it,” he said. I’m my biggest critic. I feel like I’m the best.” ——— ©2015 The Daily Star-Journal (Warrensburg, Mo.)

The All Sports Association annually gives out $1,000 scholarships to an outstanding senior girl and senior boy graduating from a high school in the greater Oklahoma City area.
High school notebook: All Sports Association scholarship applications available
By Scott Wright and Jacob Unruh | Feb 15, 2015The All Sports Association will once again give out two scholarship awards to high school athletes, and the application is now available to be downloaded. The All Sports Association annually gives out $1,000 scholarships to an outstanding senior girl and senior boy graduating from a high school in the greater Oklahoma City area. That includes Oklahoma, Canadian, Cleveland, Logan and Pottawatomie counties, as well as Newcastle, Tuttle and Bridge Creek schools. Applicant selection will be based on attributes consistent with the mission of the All Sports Association, including leadership, character, academics, athletic participation and accomplishment, and school/civic activities. In order to qualify for the scholarships, applicants must attend a two- or four-year Oklahoma college or university, have a grade-point average of 3.0 or higher, and a minimum ACT score of 22. The student must have participated in high school athletics, but cannot be receiving a college or university athletic scholarship, or be participating as a student walk-on athlete for any sport. Application deadline is April 3, and the recipients of the scholarships will be announced on April 20. The application can be downloaded at okcallsports.org/scholarship. THE OKLAHOMAN’S SPRING MEDIA DAY WEDNESDAY The Oklahoman’s annual Spring Sports Media Day has been set for Wednesday at McGuinness High School. The event begins at 3:30 p.m. and ends at 7:30. McGuinness is located at 801 NW 50 Street in Oklahoma City. The event will be held in the lobby of the McGuinness gymnasium, which can be entered from the Interstate 44 service road off Western Avenue. Each Oklahoma City-area high school participating in baseball, slowpitch softball, soccer, track, golf and tennis is encouraged to bring athletes to meet The Oklahoman’s high school coverage team for interviews, videos and photos that will be used throughout the upcoming season. OSSAA ANNOUNCES FOOTBALL REVENUE The OSSAA announced it that reimbursed schools the most amount of money ever for the football playoffs. A total of $491,463.59 was reimbursed, including $174,550 to participating schools for travel. A total of $316,913.59 was reimbursed to schools hosting semifinals and championship games. The organization netted $286,655.60, an increase of more than $4,000 from last year. Semifinals and championships were all held at neutral sites, with the most expensive being Tulsa University. The school charged nearly $10,000 per game. OSSAA executive director Ed Sheakley said it’s unlikely the OSSAA returns there unless it’s a Tulsa Union-Jenks matchup. NEW BOARD MEMBERS ELECTED Winners of the recent OSSAA board elections were announced by Sheakley. The new multi-high representative will be Northwest Classen principal Brad Herzer. The Southwest Division I representative will be Mustang superintendent Sean McDaniel. Northeast Division I will be represented by Sapulpa superintendent Kevin Burr. Northwest Division II’s representative will be Kingfisher superintendent Jason Sternberger. Rick Pool of Kiowa returns as the Southeast Division III representative.

Sooners get commit from four-star defensive tackle Neville Gallimore
Ryan Aber | Jan 3, 2015For the second consecutive season, Oklahoma picked up a big commitment at the U.S. Army All-American All-American Bowl. This year, it was defensive tackle Neville Gallimore, the four-star defensive tackle from Canada, who committed to the Sooners during the game. Gallimore chose the Sooners over Florida State and Ohio State. Gallimore (6-foot-3, 303 pounds) played high school football for Canada Prep Football Academy in St. Catharines, Ontario, near Buffalo, N.Y. The school plays a schedule of top high schools from the United States. Rivals ranks Gallimore as the No. 72 overall prospect in the 2015 class and the No. 9 defensive tackle. He’s Oklahoma’s highest-rated commit. Gallimore will be the second Canadian on Oklahoma’s roster, joining offensive lineman Josiah St. John, who is from Toronto. He is the second defensive tackle in the 2015 class to commit to the Sooners, joining Jenks’ Marquise Overton and the 18th overall commitment in the class. A year ago, five-star running back Joe Mixon committed to the Sooners during the broadcast of the game. Gallimore did not play in the game due to injury. Oklahoma loses starting defensive tackle Jordan Phillips, who announced earlier this week that he would enter the NFL Draft.

More than football in December for Penn State
By JIM CARLSON, Associated Press | Dec 13, 2014STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Penn State coach James Franklin has more on his mind than just the Pinstripe Bowl. The Nittany Lions (6-6) will face Boston College (7-5) on Dec. 27 at Yankee Stadium, Penn State's first bowl-game appearance since the 2011 season because of NCAA sanctions related to the Jerry Sandusky child abuse scandal. Franklin said Saturday he and his staff are making sure the players finish their semester strong academically, developing younger players within the program during their 15 allowable bowl-related practices, and recruiting current high school seniors prior to the upcoming NCAA dead period. Coaches are not permitted to recruit from Dec. 15-Jan. 14. Penn State has 20 verbal commitments and can offer five more. The NCAA restored their full allotment of 85 scholarships. That number was at 65 after sanctions were levied in 2012. "We're at an interesting time of the year right now where we're trying to balance two full time jobs," Franklin said. Franklin said the process has been 50 percent concluding the end of the season, and 50 percent getting a head start on spring ball. "So far, so good," he said. "It's been fun, it's been exciting." EAGLE WATCHING: Boston College is still on Franklin's mind. He knew all of BC's pertinent statistics on offense and defense as well as their formations. He also praised BC quarterback Tyler Murphy. "He's been a big part of their success, a big part of their offense," Franklin said. "He's going to be a major factor in the game and in the running game." Murphy has passed for 1,526 yards and 11 touchdowns and rushed for 1,079 yards and 10 scores. RESERVE QUARTERBACK TO TRANSFER: Third-string Penn State quarterback Michael O'Connor will transfer to another school. O'Connor, a Canadian-born quarterback who played scholastic ball in Tennessee and at IMG Academy in Florida, redshirted at Penn State this fall. Trace McSorley was named second-string quarterback behind Christian Hackenberg early in the season and also redshirted. O'Connor has yet to announce his new collegiate destination. INJURY UPDATE: Franklin said he expects linebacker Brandon Bell (shoulder) to play in the bowl game. He missed the Lions' last two regular-season games. "I think that's going to be really important for us, especially against a team that runs the ball," Franklin said. THE JUNIOR COLLEGE ROUTE: Penn State received a commitment from junior college player Paris Palmer, a 6-foot-8, 305-pound offensive tackle. Palmer,who played at Lackawanna College in Scranton, decommitted from the Univerity of South Carolina and was the top-ranked offensive lineman in the junior-college ranks. TICKETS WENT FAST: Franklin cited how the university's allotment of more than 11,000 Pinstripe Bowl tickets sold in short order. He said he was thanking students who were in line Saturday morning attempting to purchase tickets. Hundreds of students were turned away after their allotment of about 750 had been sold. MORE THAN A TACKLE: Penn State coaches have said throughout the season that defensive tackle Anthony Zettel (6-foot-4, 276 pounds) could throw a football 70 yards and drive a golf ball 300 yards. Not true, according to Zettel, a junior. "I can consistently hit over 350," Zettel said. "It's not straight sometimes." He also said his ability to throw a football "75 or 80 yards" comes from the fact he was a shot putter in high school in West Branch, Michigan, and knows how to use his hips to throw. Zettel leads the team in tackles for loss (15), sacks (8) and interceptions (3), which impressed defensive coordinator Bob Shoop. "That doesn't happen a lot," Shoop said. "That's kind of a strange hat trick right there."

Thursday's Sports Briefs
The Associated Press, Associated Press | Oct 24, 2014BASKETBALL LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles Lakers guard Steve Nash has been ruled out for the season because of a back injury, putting the two-time NBA MVP's career in doubt. The Lakers and Nash announced their joint decision less than a week before the start of what would have been the 40-year-old Nash's 19th NBA season. He played in only 15 games last season with nerve root irritation, but hoped for a comeback season after several months of rehabilitation. Instead, the Canadian point guard played in just three preseason games before feeling more back pain. He then strained his back while carrying bags several days ago. Nash, the NBA's oldest active player, is due more than $9 million this season. GAMBLING NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Claims that New Jersey's plan to allow legal sports gambling violates federal law are meritless, the state wrote in a court filing in response to efforts by four major U.S. pro sports leagues and the NCAA to stop gambling from beginning this weekend. The state filed the response late Wednesday to the leagues' request to a federal judge earlier this week for an injunction to prevent Monmouth Park racetrack from accepting sports wagers this Sunday. The track is the only venue in the state that has said it will take bets under a law signed by Gov. Chris Christie last Friday that allows sports betting at racetracks and casinos. The NFL, the NBA, the NHL, Major League Baseball and the NCAA filed a reply, and U.S. District Judge Michael Shipp will decide whether oral argument is necessary. COLLEGE RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — An alarming lack of institutional oversight at the University of North Carolina allowed an academic fraud scandal to run unchecked for nearly two decades. The latest investigation found that university leaders, faculty members and staff missed or just ignored flags that could've stopped the problem years earlier. More than 3,100 students — about half of them athletes — benefited from sham classes and artificially high grades in the formerly named African and Afro-American Studies department in Chapel Hill. A report by former U.S. Justice Department official Kenneth Wainstein indicates that the bogus classes ended in 2011. CHICAGO (AP) — The federal judge overseeing a first-of-its-kind head injury settlement with the NCAA expressed serious concerns about some terms and the vast scope of the $75 million deal that currently encompasses all college athletes going back decades. Facing NCAA and plaintiffs' attorneys who crafted the deal, U.S. District Judge John Lee wondered why sports like rifle teams, golf and swimming would be covered by the proposed agreement along with football, hockey, soccer and other contact sports. JIM THORPE Jim Thorpe's body will stay in the Pennsylvania town where he was laid to rest six decades ago after a federal appeals court threw out a ruling that could have resulted in his reburial on American Indian land in Oklahoma. The famed athlete's surviving sons have been fighting to move the body to Sac and Fox land in the state where he was born, saying their father expressed a desire to be buried in Oklahoma. A federal judge agreed with them, ruling the town of Jim Thorpe amounted to a museum under a 1990 law intended to rectify the historic plundering of American Indian burial grounds. But the Philadelphia-based 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Thursday that Thorpe's body should remain in Jim Thorpe, determining that U.S. District Judge Richard Caputo misapplied the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act. The law requires museums and federal agencies possessing American Indian remains to return them upon request of the deceased's family or tribe. Thorpe was a football, baseball and track star who won the decathlon and pentathlon in the 1912 Olympics. He died without a will in 1953 at age 64. BASEBALL MIAMI (AP) — A man described by the Drug Enforcement Administration as a black-market chemist who concocted athletic performance-enhancing drugs in his garage pleaded not guilty to criminal charges arising from Major League Baseball's recent drug scandal. Paulo Berejuk entered the plea during a federal court hearing on charges of conspiring to distribute testosterone and human growth hormone, both controlled substances. The DEA says that Berejuk for years was the main supplier for Anthony Bosch, former owner of the now-closed Biogenesis of America clinic on Coral Gables that sold banned substances to MLB players and other athletes, some still in high school. TENNIS SINGAPORE (AP) — Serena Williams rebounded from the worst loss of her professional career to rout Eugenie Bouchard 6-1, 6-1 in the WTA Finals. Williams was humbled by Simona Halep the previous day, when the 18-time Grand Slam champion won only two games. Williams improved to 2-1 in round-robin play. The American will have to wait until Friday's match between Halep and Ana Ivanovic to know if she is through to the semis. BASEL, Switzerland (AP) — Top-seeded Roger Federer rallied to beat Denis Istomin 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 to reach the Swiss Indoors quarterfinals. Federer will face Grigor Dimitrov, a 6-2, 6-2 winner over Vasek Pospisil. CYCLING AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — USA Cycling says Lance Armstrong can't ride in a South Carolina event this weekend with several of his former U.S. Postal Service teammates. Armstrong had hoped to ride with George Hincapie and several other former teammates at the non-competitive ride that bears Hincapie's name. But because the ride is still authorized by USA Cycling, Armstrong can't participate under his lifetime ban for using performance-enhancing drugs. HORSE RACING ARCADIA, Calif. (AP) — Hall of Fame jockey Gary Stevens will ride in the Breeders' Cup next week, three months after having right knee replacement surgery. The 51-year-old rider hasn't ridden in a race since the surgery on July 25. Stevens will be aboard Sivoliere in the BC Juvenile Fillies next Friday. GOLF ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. (AP) — Erik Compton made two quick birdies in the morning chill and wound up with a 5-under 65 for a share of the first-round lead in the McGladrey Classic. The two-time heart transplant recipient was tied with Brian Harman, Michael Thompson and Will MacKenzie.
