Former NFL Player Larry Johnson Commits to Helping Youth in Florida

first_imgLarry Johnson is setting out to make a difference in the lives of youth using the arts as a platform for self-expression.As a child and throughout his adult years, Johnson struggled with being shy and introverted.After his NFL career, he faced more challenges as he was figuring out how to transition into life after football, in the corporate world.With time, and the birth of his daughter, Johnson sought the necessary assistance to be honest with himself and face his demons. Thanks to friends and community leaders surrounding him, he’s found a new passion to help those who feel lost; mainly youth.“If I can just help one child overcome that feeling of feeling lost and out of place, then I have successfully made a transition from football to philanthropy work.” Johnson said.As the first Chairman of the Edge Ambassadors initiative, Johnson will have an opportunity to utilize the relationships built throughout his NFL career. He is hoping that this platform will allow him to recruit new ambassadors and supporters of the organization, generating awareness and funding that will sustain arts and academic programs for youth in foster homes, group homes, juvenile detention centers, and some of Florida’s most under-resourced communities.What draws Johnson to the organization is the way in which The Motivational Edge works with struggling and often times neglected youth trying to find their voice and individual path to success. He can also relate to the dedication and commitment each Teaching Artist has, in order to positively impact each student they mentor through arts based youth development.“I am a man with an unforgiving past who is just trying to share his struggles and successes in life to hopefully influence a child’s future. If the dreams of our youth are lost, we all lose. Supporting children is supporting our future to ensure they find a positive path to grow,” Johnson said.last_img read more

Lance takes off gloves, fires back at Landis over claims

first_img Happier times: Lance Armstrong (right) and teammate Floyd Landis ride together during the 2004 Tour de France. Landis has recently accused Armstrong of involvement in doping. | AP PHOTO GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMES Armstrong has denied those allegations.“Even a superficial review reveals a troubling, angry and misplaced effort at retribution by Landis for his perceived slights,” said a statement posted on Armstrong’s RadioShack team Web site. “While these types of repeated, tired and baseless accusations against Lance have been proven false in the past, it is quite regrettable, but telling, that so many in cycling are now attacked.”Landis did not respond to an e-mail seeking comment. His longtime sponsor, Dr. Brent Kay, also did not return a request for comment.Perhaps the most telling exchange was a long e-mail from Kay, a cycling enthusiast and one of Landis’ most ardent supporters, financially and otherwise. Kay has steadfastly said he believes Landis wasn’t guilty of doping when he won cycling’s most famous race in 2006.Kay, while reaffirming to Landis that he would support him no matter what, asked him to call a truce with Armstrong and suggested he ride on the star’s team.“If either side does not like this idea just throw this in the trash and be done with it, have the press conference and get it over with. But, once again, I’m asking you to do this for me and my family so we can move on with our lives and leave all the anger, hatred and bitterness behind,” Kay wrote in an April 28 e-mail to Landis that he forwarded to Armstrong on May 3.Less than a month later, Landis went public with his e-mails, not only targeting Armstrong but Tour of California officials, too, for not inviting his team to participate in the race.“I certainly understand that my revealing that Lance Armstrong has relied on blood doping, EPO, and anabolics to win the three Tours de France in which I helped him will jeopardize your substantial investment in facilitating his appearance so from a business point of view I understand fully,” Landis wrote to Andrew Messick, the race director.In his e-mail response, Messick said the accusation did not dignify a response, and reminded Landis that the California race welcomed him in 2009. Messick said he didn’t believe Landis’ current team could handle the challenge of a 1,300-km stage race.Kay also appealed to Messick about adding Landis’ team to this year’s Tour of California. And he reached out to Armstrong several times, asking him to take bike rides together and even offering the use of his homes around the Temecula, Calif., area.He even told Landis that teaming up with Armstrong could work wonders for him financially.“It’s a simple straightforward idea and, if anything, selfish on my part,” Kay wrote. Floyd Landis ignored desperate pleas from his sponsor to avoid a public fight with Lance Armstrong, according to e-mails the seven-time Tour de France champion released in trying to prove the disgraced cyclist has “zero credibility.”Armstrong released the messages Friday in a second day of attacks on Landis, who accused cycling’s biggest star of doping, teaching other riders to cheat and paying off a top cycling official after allegedly testing positive in 2002.center_img IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5 RELATED PHOTOSlast_img read more

Four Bristol Ladies Players Named In Wales Team To Play Ireland

first_imgThe fixture, which will be played at Donnybrook Stadium, is Wales’ second Women’s Six Nations warm-up match of the year after last weekend’s victory against Spain in Alicante, and Phillips believes the game with Las Leonas was precisely what was needed before this weekend’s encounter with the Irish.”Returning from the Christmas break, we seemed a little off the pace from where we had been, so Spain helped us get our energy back,” says Bristol’s Phillips. “It gave us a chance to tighten things up and sharpen our focus. It was all about the performance, and the team developed as the game went on, which is very encouraging.”Bristol Fly-half Elinor Snowsill and hooker Carys Phillips (captain) are among the experienced names starting for the first time this year.”This Sunday represents a big step up from the recent games we’ve played, but that’s exciting because it gives us the opportunity to see what next-level rugby is about,” says Phillips, who has overseen three victories from three matches since taking the reins last year. “Come February, we’ll be mixing it with teams that are sitting at the top table in world rugby, and Ireland are certainly one of those teams. We need to get used to the intensity and physicality they play with, so this is a massive opportunity for us as a team.”Though some might suggest there is a sub-plot to Sunday’s game – Wales will welcome Ireland to the BT Sport Cardiff Arms Park in the Women’s Six Nations on March 11th – Phillips isn’t reading too much into it. “There will certainly be a sense that both teams are getting a look at each other before the big competition, but we’ll have quite a bit of work to do before we get to play them again. “However, the timing of this game is perfect for us, because we’ll then have a two-week lead into the Women’s Six Nations, and that’s outstanding for us.”Wales Women will name their Women’s Six Nations squad this Monday, whilst tickets for their highly-anticipated home matches against England and Ireland are now available here.last_img read more

Windies, Bangladesh clash in first Test today

first_imgST JOHN’S, Antigua, (CMC) – A low profile two-Test series against once minnows Bangladesh will carry much weight for struggling West Indies, when it bowls off at the Vivian Richards Cricket Stadium here today.Having slumped to a historic low of ninth in the ICC Test rankings last May, the rubber against the dangerous Bangladeshis in familiar home conditions represents the ideal chance to climb back to eighth and begin their long trek back up the rankings.The Caribbean side gained five ratings points following their 1-1 draw in the recent three-Test series against Sri Lanka, and now lie within striking distance of eighth in the rankings on 72 points – three adrift of the Bangladeshis.A 1-0 series series win will see the Windies move to 75 points and Bangladesh drop to 69 while a series sweep will result in the hosts rising to 77 and their opponents slipping to 67.The permutations therefore highlight the importance of a series win for the Jason Holder-led unit.Conversely, West Indies will also need to avoid a series defeat, as such an outcome will see the gains made against the Sri Lankans erased.They stand to lose four points with a 1-0 defeat and will concede a further point if they are swept by Bangladesh, who will then strengthen their hold on eighth spot.West Indies, however, will be heartened by some of their performances during the recent series but will enter the Test here concerned by their mis-firing batting group.The top five – Kieran Powell (166), Roston Chase (123), Shai Hope (114), Kraigg Brathwaite (104) and Devon Smith (91) – all struggled for runs and managed only four half-centuries among them.Wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich, adjudged Man-of-the-Series, led the batting with 288 runs at an average of 57 and was the only West Indies batsman to score a hundred.Holder, who excelled with the bat scoring 198 runs at nearly 40, will hope for a better showing from his specialist batsmen.Speedster Shannon Gabriel will once again lead the Windies attack fresh from his outstanding showing against Sri Lanka when he picked up 20 wickets.Holder, who took nine wickets in the last Test at Kensington Oval, finished the series with 12 scalps while fellow seamer Kemar Roach had 11.Pacer Miguel Cummins, who managed just three wickets, will be a concern as will be leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo ended with four across the three Tests.West Indies will fancy their chances, especially based on past series against Bangladesh, as they have only lost once to the Asians – in 2009 when they fielded a depleted side because of a players strike.In 12 Tests, the Windies have won eight times, lost twice and drawn twice. The last time they two teams met in the Caribbean four years ago, the hosts pulled off convincing wins in both Tests.Bangladesh, meanwhile, without a Test series win since thrashing minnows Zimbabwe four years ago, are expected to present a strong challenge.They served notice of their dangerous batting when they piled over 400 in the two-day tour match against CWI President’s XI last week, with experienced opener Tamim Iqbal and veteran Mahmudullah hitting exciting centuries.SQUADS:WEST INDIES – Jason Holder (captain), Devendra Bishoo, Kraigg Brathwaite, Roston Chase, Miguel Cummins, Shane Dowrich, Shannon Gabriel, Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope, Keemo Paul, Kieran Powell, Kemar Roach, Devon Smith.BANGLADESH – Shakib Al Hasan (Captain), Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmud Ullah, Litton Kumer Das, Mominul Haque, Mehidy Hassan Miraz, Taijul Islam, Kamrul Islam Rabbi, Rubel Hossain, Nurul Hasan Sohan, Abu Jayed Chowdhury Rahi, Nazmul Hossain Shanto, Shafiul Islam.last_img read more

Kuman: Barcelona will bet on the defensive game

first_imgBarcelona coach Ronald Coeman, who made his debut with a 3-1 victory over Gimnastic de Tarragona in a friendly match, said after the match that it is possible for the Catalans to start a more defensive game. Otherwise, during the match last night, the specialist bet on a new scheme of play – 4-2-3-1.“It may be a different and maybe a little more defensive team than we have seen in recent years, but the goal is to move the ball, hold it and find spaces between the lines and behind the opposing midfielders. I think this team can succeed because we have midfielders who play like that. Most importantly, we have no injuries. Everyone played for 45 minutes. We had moments of good intensity. There is always something to improve, but we are happy.It’s important to play because it wasn’t a normal pre-season preparation. We only had 4 weeks, not 6. It’s complicated. What we want now is to put in physical work and we will work on tactics in the next 2 weeks, “Kuman said.last_img read more

Brazil lucky to have both Jesus and Firmino – Guardiola

first_img(Reuters) – Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said Brazil face a selection dilemma whether to start with his team’s striker Gabriel Jesus or Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino at the World Cup. Jesus scored 17 goals across all competitions for Premier League champions City this season while Firmino has netted 27 to help Liverpool secure a fourth-placed league finish and reach the Champions League final.Brazil manager Tite suggested during his squad announcement on Monday that Jesus’ record of nine goals in 15 international matches could see the 21-year-old start over Firmino at the World Cup.Guardiola, however, remained neutral on the selection debate, saying both players had their qualities. “Lucky for Brazil that they have two incredible strikers. Gabriel has an energy, his desire is contagious, his movement… I think that this will calm down with age. Firmino is older, has already played in other places,” Guardiola told ESPN.“I can imagine what Brazil can be like in a World Cup on a media level. If you play one, you have to play the other, if you play the other, you have to play the one. It’s an endless discussion.“It’s Tite’s problem, not mine. But it’s a debate.”last_img read more
