Mason Parris


first_imgCongratulations to Mason Parris who recently signed a national letter of intent to attend the University of Michigan on a wrestling scholarship.  Mason is a 3-sport athlete at Lawrenceburg High school.  He is a linebacker in football, 2-time state wrestling champ, and runs hurdles and throws the shot in track.Mason is the son of Mark and Shay Parris.  Mark was a state shot put champ while at East Central High School and he played football at Ball State University.  Shay was a champion hurdler in the EIAC while at Lawrenceburg.  Both parents were star athletes while in school.Mark was not remembered as a wrestler in high school, but he certainly was a good one, won the state shot put, and Mason’s mom was the hurdler.  I think they might have had a slight influence on his athletic ability and the choices he has made in high school.  It will be fun to watch his progress at Michigan.last_img read more


Trail Life USA e-book tackles culture of boyhood


first_imgLawrenceburg, In. — With interest in enrollment in extra-curricular programs spiking nationwide as children return to school, Trail Life USA has released a special e-book outlining the unique learning and development needs of young males.Political correctness is failing America’s boys, according to the outdoor adventure organization that has published the guide urging parents, teachers and youth leaders to support single-sex activities that can help raise a generation of true men.In a free eBook available for download, titled Let Boys Be Boys, Trail Life CEO Mark Hancock warns contemporary culture has “seemingly declared war on boyhood.” But boyhood is not “some sort of social disease that needs to be eradicated,” he insists.That message is resonating with many parents. The Christ-centered boy-focused outdoor adventure program that develops character and leadership has seen heightened interest from prospective members and volunteer leaders since the Boy Scouts of America announced last year it would be admitting girls to its programs.Let Boys Be Boys warns that “PC” attitudes have led to boys failing educationally, with what was long considered normal boyish behavior being labeled as symptoms of ADHD. It sets out three strategies for leaders of boys that challenge the prevailing idea that boys and girls aren’t that different.Drawing from research showing biological differences that impact the way boys learn—such as their reduced ability to distinguish shapes and colors, making coloring and handwriting less appealing—the guide encourages more hands-on activities.He also advocates programs that involve boys in physical activity, because “they thrive in kinesthetic learning environments,” and need opportunities for risk and competition. The everybody-wins philosophy that has become so prevalent, “leads to the development of unproductive narcissists,” Hancock says. “They are unproductive because we haven’t sufficiently challenged them, and they are narcissists because we haven’t let them fail.”Schools and organizations that are providing separate learning environments for boys and girls are seeing great results, he notes in Let Boys Be Boys. He cites a high school in Memphis that has raised its graduation rate to 90.5 percent from 53 percent after converting to boys-only and girls-only classes.“As leaders of boys in schools, home schools, churches, and youth organizations, we must recognize and affirm their unique strengths and challenges,” Hancock writes. “We are positioned to instill the principles and character traits that can prepare boys to become successful, focused men.”Through troops chartered by local churches, Trail Life USA offers a K-12 program centered on outdoor experiences that build young men’s skills and help them grow on a personal level and as role models and leaders for their peers.Founded in 2013, Trail Life USA has more than 25,000 members in more than 770 Troops in 49 states and is anticipating heightened seasonal interest from potential members and leaders. The organization has added more than 50 Troops in the past 60 days, and new memberships are being added at double the rate experienced last year.Here is a link the troop located in Lawrenceburg.last_img read more


Wenger backs Ozil to lift Wilshere


first_img German playmaker Ozil could make his Barclays Premier League debut at Sunderland on Saturday, having made a deadline day move from Real Madrid which was greeted by disbelief from his former team-mates at the Bernabeu. Wenger is in no doubt the arrival of such a high-calibre player can only help bring on the talent of 21-year-old Wilshere, who has been troubled by injury in recent seasons and is the subject of debate over burnout following a somewhat laboured display in the World Cup qualifier against Ukraine earlier this week. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes club-record £43million signing Mesut Ozil can help England midfielder Jack Wilshere thrive in a deeper role at the heart of the Gunners side. Press Associationcenter_img “In midfield, Jack Wilshere is more comfortable in deeper positions and Ozil more in a higher position, that is why I don’t think they conflict,” said Wenger, who is set to be without Czech midfielder Tomas Rosicky because of a thigh injury at the Stadium of Light. “I didn’t always think that, but looking at Jack over the years now, he likes to come deep to take the ball and make a difference, and then give and go again. “Ozil, though, is more behind the striker, higher up on the field.” Wenger had long tracked the third-generation Turkish-German playmaker, and tried to bring him to Arsenal when he moved from Werder Bremen in August 2010. A personal phone call from the French coach – who is fluent in German – on the eve of Arsenal’s win over Tottenham ahead of the international break proved pivotal to seal the move. Ozil, 24, was part of Germany’s successful Under-21 side which beat England 4-0 in the final of the 2009 European Championships, and is in no doubt he has signed for both a club and manager capable of taking his game to another level. Wenger said: “Ozil has the personality to express his game, which is for me the most important. He is a creative player, and that is what we want, to express his talent and develop it. “If you look well at his record, his assists are fantastic, his goalscoring record there is room for improvement. “In the next few years, you expect him to combine those two together.” last_img read more


Newcastle boss Steve McClaren: New players still adapting to ‘culture shock’


first_img Asked if allowances had to be made for players arriving at a “bonkers” club, he replied: “That’s a bit harsh! You don’t work inside it, and it’s not so bonkers inside. It looks it, though, doesn’t it from the outside? “A lot of players have been here longer than I have, a lot of them. We only introduced five, I think, and we always said that it would take time for them to adapt. “And in terms of the job and adapting and blah blah blah, it can take the first half of a season to do that. I fully expect us to be stronger in the second half than we are in the first half. “It’s not an easy football club, as you and we all know, but that’s the situation that we’re in. I think the players know that and I think those new ones are coming in and adapting to that. I think it can be a culture shock to them.” Poor results in recent seasons, coupled with an antipathy towards owner Mike Ashley and his regime from large sections of the fan-base, have made for an uneasy atmosphere at St James’ Park, although that was not in evidence last weekend. However, McClaren revealed one of the first things he did on his arrival during the summer was to show the players footage of last season’s final-day victory over West Ham, which secured the club’s top-flight status. He said: “For me, that was Newcastle United. The crowd was magnificent – they egged the players on – the players were full of fight and endeavour and work and that little bit of football that got the win. “It’s not rocket science. It’s Newcastle and that’s it: do that every week.” Press Association Steve McClaren has admitted life at Newcastle can be a culture shock for some players. center_img The Magpies head for Tottenham on Sunday still deep in Barclays Premier League relegation trouble despite last weekend’s 2-0 victory over Liverpool, and with some of their summer signings still acclimatising to the challenge of playing their football on Tyneside. Big-money summer signing Aleksandar Mitrovic was left on the bench last Sunday, while fellow newcomer Florian Thauvin made a brief appearance as a substitute, and head coach McClaren knows it will take time for new arrivals to settle into a club where events off the pitch often overshadow those on it. last_img read more

Simmons, Archer lead surprise CPL draft snubs


first_imgEYEBROWS were raised around the region after several high-profile players failed to find a home during Wednesday’s Caribbean Premier League (CPL) draft in London.Leading the list of notable Caribbean absentees for the upcoming season were Lendl Simmons, Dwayne Smith, Sunil Ambris, Davendra Bishoo and Kevon Cooper.The case of Simmons is particularly surprising as things seem to have spun in a 180-degree direction. Only a few months ago the player was selected as the first pick of the 2018 draft for the St Lucia Stars.On that occasion, Simmons went for US$160 000 after entering the draft for US$70 000. The Trinidadian native entered the draft at the same price but this time around but found no takers.The much-travelled Simmons previously played for the Jamaica Tallawahs, Guyana Amazon Warriors and St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. The 36-year-old Smith, who previously opened for Barbados Tridents and Amazon Warriors, also found himself without a team after entering in the US$70 000 category.Another stunning omission, maybe the most surprising, from the team selection was Barbadian-born Englishman Jofra Archer, who was the most expensive ever Caribbean-born player for the 2018 IPL season.The all-rounder also had several big performances in the Australia Big Bash League. The player was recently selected for the England World Cup squad.last_img read more

London Derby: Chelsea Stake Unbeaten Run against Spurs


first_imgNot many would have staked their money on Chelsea not conceding a defeat after 12 Premier League games, not because of lack of quality but rather due to the Blues’ management not responding on time to sign a manager in good time to prepare the team for the new season. Surprisingly, Maurizio Sarri has not only improved Chelsea’s quality of play, but the Blues are also yet to taste defeat in 18 matches in all competitions and this is the run today’s opponent-Tottenham Hotspurs would be hoping to halt at WembleyTop-four rivals Tottenham Hotspurs and Chelsea lock horns at Wembley Stadium in the pick of this weekend’s Premier League action. Spurs have been in better form over the past two months, but they trail their opponent by a point ahead of this evening’s clash.Tottenham have won nine of their Premier League games so far but, significantly, two of their three defeats have come against top-four rivals Manchester City and Liverpool. Now they have the chance to leapfrog Chelsea with a victory at Wembley, with Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino suggesting the lack of Champions League football is helping his London rivals.“This season they are competing in the Europa League again and it’s completely different for Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool or us because we’re competing in the Champions League,” he said. “It’s a completely different competition.“I am not surprised (by their start) because Chelsea have an unbelievable squad and players. This summer they invested. They signed players, quality players and they added to the squad. But it’s normal; they have one point more than us.”Despite the ongoing negativity due to matters out of Pocheittino’s hands – namely the delayed move into their new ground and a serious lack of ambition in the summer transfer window, Tottenham headed into the final international break of the year on a high.Six wins from their last eight matches leave them in a strong position in the Premier League, through to the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup and still in with a chance of qualifying for the knockout stages of the Champions League.That five of their last six league wins have come by a one-goal margin, with the exception being a 2-0 triumph away at strugglers Huddersfield Town at the end of September, backs up Pochettino’s point that his players have shown exceptional fighting spirit in the face of adversity.The problem for Tottenham has been their home form, having collected just 22 per cent of their Premier League points at Wembley this season – the lowest-such tally of any side in the division. Of the 27 points accrued overall so far, only six have come at their temporary home.Victory over Fulham was followed up by defeat to Liverpool, while their slender win against another relegation battler in Cardiff City came immediately before a 1-0 loss to Manchester City in their most recent match at the national stadium.With rumours that Spurs’ new ground will not be complete until February at the earliest, and with three home games to come in the next fortnight, Pochettino knows that his players cannot afford to drop many more points in front of their own fans.Either side of a trip to arch-rivals Arsenal on December 3, Tottenham have huge matches against Chelsea, Inter Milan and Southampton to prepare for. In what has been a strange campaign for the Lilywhites so far, this really is defining the period.The international break may just have come at the wrong time for Spurs, however, as they had put together a four-match winning run in all competitions prior to the two-week hiatus. Should that run extended to five matches this weekend, Spurs will leapfrog their city rivals into third place – not bad for a side enduring their so-called toughest spell since Pochettino took charge.Despite many expecting Sarri to struggle upon his delayed arrival at Stamford Bridge in mid-July, the Italian has hit the ground running in his first managerial stint outside of his native Italy.Sarri, in fact, became the first manager to go his first 12 games unbeaten in the Premier League with the goalless draw against Everton a fortnight ago, surpassing Frank Clark’s long-held record of 11 matches set at Nottingham Forest in 1994.Not since 2014 have Chelsea started a top-flight campaign on a better run, though the Everton stalemate prior to the international break did halt them in their tracks somewhat, allowing Tottenham to close the gap to just one point, while Liverpool and Manchester City pulled further clear above them.The Blues, champions in two of the last four seasons, have now drawn four of their last seven league matches, having also been held by West Ham United and fellow big boys Liverpool and Manchester United in the past nine weeks.Before firing a blank against Marco Silva’s stubborn Everton side, Chelsea had racked up five successive wins in all competitions, including victories over Crystal Palace and Burnley in the Premier League, Derby County in the EFL Cup last 16 and BATE Borisov (twice) in the Europa League.With their progress to the knockout stages of the Europa League already secured, and a winnable quarter-final tie against Bournemouth in the EFL Cup to look forward to before Christmas, this is shaping up to be a memorable first season at the helm for popular boss Sarri.Top of the Italian’s list of priorities will no doubt by the Premier League, even if he has tried his best to play down his side’s chances of not only closing the gap on Man City but also holding off a strong Liverpool side.The good news for the West London outfit is that they have beaten Spurs on four previous occasions at Wembley – more than any club has beaten another at the ground.Tottenham meanwhile, will be banking on more Harry Kane heroics against Chelsea after their talisman fired England to a dramatic last-gasp victory at Wembley.Kane scored the winner at Tottenham’s temporary home last weekend to relegate Croatia in the Nations League and exact some revenge for England’s semi-final defeat to the same opponents at the World Cup.“He is the best goalscorer in the world… his hold-up play, as well as the goals he brings, is critical,” said England manager Gareth Southgate after England clinched a place in the Nations League Finals.“He is so hungry to lead the team even further.”Spurs have suffered the after-effects of a demanding summer for most of Pochettino’s squad.Kane is just one of the three Spurs players not to have picked up a muscle injury from Tottenham’s 12-strong World Cup contingent, nine of whom were involved in the final weekend of the tournament less than a month before the new season began.Despite battling fatigue and fitness concerns, added to the uncertainty over when the club’s new stadium will be finished, Pochettino has admirably kept Spurs on track for a top-four finish for the fourth straight season.Sarri has rightly earned rave reviews for his 18-game unbeaten start to life as Chelsea boss. Yet, should Spurs inflict Sarri’s first defeat, they will leapfrog Chelsea into third, thanks to their impressive start to the Premier League season.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more


Pulev Accuses Joshua of Being Scared to Fight Outside London


first_imgJoshua (left) and Pulev were earlier scheduled to fight next month In an interview via the Betway Insider blog, Pulev said: “We have one heavyweight champion (Joshua) and he is too slow all the time to agree a date. “We understand the world pandemic and everything but I think we can fight this year and I prepare to do this – it does not matter where, which day, I’m ready, we are training and I wait for the date.“December 5th is what we’ve heard and I hear London is favourite to host.“We think London because maybe he is scared and he wants to fight there. Normally we can fight anywhere in the world not only in London – but for me it’s no problem, I can fight anywhere. I’m ready, I’m hungry, and I know I am going to win.“He is a very good boxer for sure, a world champion… and he has had a lot of good fights.“But I see a lot of problems in his style and his boxing and I think I can use every small opening and I can beat him. I do think he has a problem with psychology,” stressed the Bulgarian.The pair were due to slug it out in 2017, but the Pulev had to withdraw from the bout with a ‘strained pectoral muscle’, leading Joshua to fight – and subsequently beat – Carlos Takam instead.Joshua was ‘p***ed off’ that Pulev withdrew from their fight three years ago, which led the Brit to claim that he would’ve went ahead with the fight if he had sustained the same injury.But Pulev, now fit and raring to go, claims not everything was so black and white.When asked why the fight fell through, Pulev said: “I stopped training because I was injured and he didn’t believe me, he was a little bit arrogant. He said: “If I was Pulev I could box with this injury”, but it’s not so easy.“God showed us it’s not good to speak too much and that’s why he is now injured with his leg. I wait patiently and when he is ready and healthy, we can fight.”While in lockdown, AJ and Tyson Fury reached an agreement over a sensational two-fight deal for 2021, with the pair hoping to unify the heavyweight division should they overcome what’s put in front of them in the meantime.News of this mega-deal irked Pulev, who is promising to inflict a second knockout on the British heavyweight champion.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev has reignited the war of words with Anthony Joshuaahead of their heavyweight title showdown in December by claiming the Sagamu-born, British heavyweight champion is ‘scared’ to fight outside of London.Pulev is desperate to dethrone the unified world champion who he claims is struggling psychologically since he was handed his first defeat by Andy Ruiz last year.According to UK’s DailyMailonline, Pulev has insisted that he has no problem with where he fights Joshua and is confident of handing him a second knockout defeat of his career, once they finally go toe-to-toe inside the squared-circle.last_img read more
