Berry was a four-year starter as a corner and was a three-time All-Ivy League team selection and an All-America honoree. He totaled 125 career tackles and five interceptions. At one point during his junior year, Berry went four consecutive games without the ball being thrown in his direction.Berry was one of five finalists for the John Wooden Citizenship Cup, which is awarded to the nation’s highest-achieving student-athlete who best displays character, teamwork, and citizenship. He was a finalist for the Draddy Trophy as the national scholar-athlete of the year and was named the 2009 Football Championship Subdivision Athletic Director Association Scholar-Athlete of the Year.Quote from Pro Football Hall of Famer Bill Polian on Andrew Berry“Andrew Berry is one of the brightest young men we ever had the pleasure of working with. He came to us very early in his career and very soon we realized he was on a fast track. I am not surprised the Browns hired him for this very important position. I assure you he has both the capacity and the will to do an outstanding job. The Browns have made, in my humble opinion, a great hire.”center_img Matt Loede has been a part of the Cleveland Sports Media for over 21 years, with experience covering Major League Baseball, National Basketball Association, the National Football League and even high school and college events.

Champions League: The referee had a bad game – Ancelotti blasts Kassai after Bayern exit

first_imgBayern Munich manager, Carlo Ancelotti, has blasted referee Viktor Kassai, after his side was eliminated from the Champions League on Tuesday night.Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick, as the La Liga side overpowered 10-man Bayern at the Santiago Bernabeu.The Portugal captain appeared to be offside for the second of his three goals, while Arturo Vidal was sent off rather harshly.In his post-match press conference, Ancelotti, who was sacked from Madrid two years ago, said: “(The) referee’s performance was worse than ours.“I know it’s football and it happens sometimes, but not this serious of a mistake.“A quarter-final, you have to have a referee with… I don’t know… more quality. Or have video. There are too many errors.“I don’t say this [we’d have gone through with another ref]. I don’t like to do it either.“The ref had a bad game.

‘Crunch time’ for Rebels as they host Mississippi State

first_imgScott WeathersbyScott WeathersbyOXFORD – This weekend’s series may be Ole Miss’ most important of the season – and it has little to do with the fact that it comes against in-state rival Mississippi State.Although, that does make for some added dramatics.“You’d be lying to say it’s just another game. It’s not,” Ole Miss coach Mike Bianco said. “We understand it’s not. We tell (the players) that. They get that. They know that.“Playing against your in-state rival, (this series) is probably more important than any other three.”But whether they come against a rival or not, Ole Miss’ NCAA Tournament dreams would greatly benefit from winning at least two games this weekend with Thursday’s opener starting at 7:30 p.m.The Rebels’ enter the series clinging to a 25-24 record. It would get them into the tournament’s field of 64 (teams must be above .500 to be eligible) if the season ended today. But – obviously – it does not.“It’s crunch time,” senior pitcher Scott Weathersby said. “We get it.”This weekend’s series may be Ole Miss’ best chance to cushion the win column before heading to Hoover, Alabama for the Southeastern Conference Tournament in two weeks.The Rebels must go 4-3 during its final seven games in order to avoid a must-win situation come tournament time. After Mississippi State, the Rebels play Arkansas State in a midweek match and then host Texas A&M to cap the regular season.Mississippi State sits at No. 92 in the latest RPI.Texas A&M is third.The Rebels are likely hoping to do their legwork before facing a tough Aggies squad.“We need to bring it this weekend,” Weathersby said. “We need wins.”Weathersby is hoping the fact that it’s finals week helps the Rebels’ cause. Because of the exams, Ole Miss didn’t have a midweek game — meaning Bianco will have a full bullpen at his disposal against the Bulldogs.“This week is coming at the right time,” Bianco said.Ole Miss’ struggle to find a third weekend starter this season has been well documented, with Sam Smith and Will Stokes each getting a chance and failing in the role.Bianco turned to Weathersby for this first time last weekend in a win against Missouri. Bianco contemplated the move earlier in the year, but hesitated because he didn’t want to lose arguably his best reliever.Weathersby will likely start in game three again this weekend with Bianco having plenty of rested long-relief options in Stokes, Smith, Mitchel Babb – who have all made midweek starts – Jacob Waguespack and more.“Rivalry games are always big games,” Waguespack said. “We’re trying to get some wins for us. We’re trying to get some wins for the fans as well.”Contact Riley Blevins at rblevins@jackson.gannett.com. Follow @Riley_Blevins on Twitter.last_img read more

Damian Lillard wants spot at 2020 Olympics, but talent alone is not enough for USA Basketball

first_imgAlthough he chose not to be a member of the USA Basketball senior national team that traveled to Australia for three exhibition games the Americans played in advance of the 2019 FIBA World Cup, Trail Blazers star guard Damian Lillard did find time for such a trip last week as a brand ambassador for adidas.He spoke with a reporter from News.com in Australia after the U.S. was eliminated from medal contention with a quarterfinal loss to France. He admitted having not watched the game. Lillard declared, though, he intended to be part of the U.S. team that will compete in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. “I plan on being a part of that,” he told James McKern. “Definitely.”MORE: World catching up with USA Basketball? Not so fastAnd perhaps there will be a place for him on the squad. He is one of the best basketball players in the world.But he should only be included if a whole lot of other great players won’t — or can’t — compete.Fielding a team primarily of middle-class NBA players, the U.S. finished seventh in the 2019 World Cup, its worst performance ever. After falling in the quarterfinals, the Americans dropped a consolation game to Serbia that left them having to defeat Poland to avoid losing three consecutive games.Lillard was offered the opportunity to play by managing director Jerry Colangelo and, to be honest, the program needed him badly. It was apparent USA Basketball veterans James Harden, Stephen Curry and Anthony Davis were unlikely to play in another World Cup. The tournament was going to need the next wave of young American stars to keep alive its string of five consecutive major tournament titles and 58 victories in competitive games.The only players who fit that category and competed were Kemba Walker of the Celtics and Donovan Mitchell of the Jazz. Lillard withdrew along with Wizards guard Bradley Beal, Sixers forward Tobias Harris and guard De’Aaron Fox and forward Marvin Bagley of the Kings. Along with Walker, Lillard and Kawhi Leonard were the only U.S.-eligible players on the 2019 All-NBA teams who did not previously compete for USA Basketball at a senior international invent.Blake Griffin had committed to the 2012 Olympics and was on the team but withdrew after injuring his knee. Curry, Harden, Paul George, Kyrie Irving, Russell Westbrook and LeBron James all competed for the United States in the past. James represented the U.S. at three Olympic Games. Irving and Harden have played in both the Olympics and World Cup.Ideally, these players will form the core of the 2020 U.S. Olympic men’s basketball team. ESPN analyst Fran Fraschilla, an expert in the international game, said he definitely would reward Mitchell and Walker for competing in the World Cup and ask them to join the veteran superstars who’ve won gold in the past. He agrees that players such as Lillard should be invited along only if necessary.”I would not put those guys at the top of my list, if I were Jerry,” Fraschilla said. “They’re going to want to put the best possible team together, but I think it would start with the guys who represented the U.S. in the past.”Jerry Colangelo is a smart man. He will not look a gift horse in the mouth. He’s going to evaluate every player who wants to be a part of this team.”After the World Cup, Colangelo told reporters he was surprised by the number of withdrawals. “I can only say, you can’t help but notice and remember who you thought you were going to war with and who didn’t show up,” Colangelo said.No great player owes his summer to USA Basketball. It is an honor, but one that demands an investment of time and energy.Neither does anyone warrant a place on the Olympic roster merely because of talent and achievement. Commitment is a two-way relationship.last_img read more
