Senegal give Africans joy in Poland win

Booty still Carroll’s man

first_imgCOLLEGE FOOTBALL: If the QB is healthy, he will remain the starter. By Scott Wolf STAFF WRITER USC coach Pete Carroll diffused any thoughts of a quarterback controversy Sunday night when he said John David Booty would remain the Trojans’ quarterback if he is able to play with a broken middle fingertip. “I’m not doing that,” Carroll said regarding a quarterback change. “That’s not what I would be thinking. It’s not a one-guy deal. It’s real easy to point it all at the quarterback. I’m not going to do that. If it was really a one-guy situation, the decision would be clear. “It isn’t just because of the thrower. There’s a lot of things we can work on to be more efficient.” If only all the other problems confronting the Trojans were so simple to address in the wake of Carroll’s (and maybe USC’s) most embarrassing loss, a 24-23 setback to Stanford, which was a 41-point underdog. Actually, Carroll did not even know Sunday if Booty would play this week. Booty iced his finger but it’s too soon to tell if he can grip a football properly. “I don’t know,” Carroll said. “We’ll figure it out during the week. If he can’t throw, I won’t force him. He did come back and throw the ball all right (after the injury).” Everything else will be much harder to gauge. Carroll sounded more worried about the state of college football’s most successful program in recent years than anything regarding Booty. “It’s real clear we’ve fallen out of line with the philosophy of the program for years by turning the ball over,” he said. “I’m not getting it done, I need to make it clear that every decision we make is about the ball. “I’ve got to get back to that philosophy. If not, we won’t have a clue what’s going on.” Of course, most of USC’s turnovers are interceptions. Booty has thrown eight, including six in the past two games, but Carroll said it’s the entire offense’s responsibility. He refused to elaborate on why. “We’ve thrown more interceptions than almost all last season,” he said. “There’s a lot of things that go into it, but I’m not going into it.” He’s also reluctant to play backup quarterback Mark Sanchez, who has thrown only three passes all season and has an interception. “He hasn’t had a chance to play much,” Carroll said of Sanchez. “We need to make sure we don’t put it all on one person.” That said, Carroll also discussed the wide receivers’ struggles. Patrick Turner has dropped passes all season, including three against Stanford. The other receivers, sophomore Vidal Hazelton along with freshmen Ronald Johnson and David Ausberry, are inconsistent. “We’ve had growing pains,” Carroll said. “The guys are gaining experience. It’s been a tough call to task whether they’re ready or not. But we need to run the football better. It all fits together.” Carroll said injuries in the Washington game also changed the Trojans’ season, specifically when center Kris O’Dowd and guard Chilo Rachal suffered knee injuries on the same play. “At three weeks, we were fine and then something hit the fan,” he said. “It’s obvious we haven’t recovered since all our guys got hurt. That’s what it felt like. When two guys went down on one play, we haven’t been the same since.” But what about losing to a 41-point underdog? Carroll said the margin was irrelevant to him. “It doesn’t mean a damn thing. That’s somebody else’s problem,” he said. “I don’t care about that. That’s somebody else’s thing.” But Carroll’s not unaware of public opinion. Or at least how quickly it turns, even on a coach who won 35 straight games at the Coliseum before Saturday’s loss. “I was in the NFL for 16 years. It went week to week,” he said. “I totally understand it. It turns in the wink of an eye.” Notes: Snapper Will Collins pulled a hamstring in pregame warmups and Carroll said it played a role in the blocked extra point, because the offensive line couldn’t get proper spacing with Collins covering less ground. … Center Matt Spanos received stitches on his lacerated hand, and linebacker Thomas Williams sprained an ankle. scott.wolf@dailynews.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Two brothers making the dash from Dublin to Donegal for Macmillan

first_img“There will always be competition between us, we are recording our times on our phones which records speeds and times and currently I am winning,” says Aaron, laughing profusely.“I have done more running than my brother in the past but, he is more definitely more physically fit than me, I’m sure he’ll catch up,” he joked.“Our mum is on the phone to us telling us that we’re mad, so it has all been a bit crazy. “We’ve had to calm her down and explain that we are taking it seriously by training for it.“And obviously now, all our aunties are texting us wishing us good luck, so it’s all quite exciting.”Meet Aaron, one-half of the Martin brothers, the other Josh, who will both run 215km from Dublin to Donegal Town in May across seven days all for Macmillan cancer. The two brothers, who are originally from Birmingham, have strong Donegal roots through their mother, Geraldine Wright, who herself is originally from Fintown but now living in Convoy after moving back from the UK.“It was actually my brother that came up with the idea, we have both done running in the past but he just loved the idea of running in Ireland.“One of our cousins did an event over in Ireland and I think we just liked the idea even more, especially running through rural parts of the country,” Aaron added.“We will finish the run in Donegal because that is the main place where we spent in Ireland during the summer holidays, that is where our family is.“And we are starting from Dublin because it’s such a well-known place.”Aaron, 24, and Josh, 20, aim to start the run for Macmillan at around 10am on May 30, continuing their journey to the North-West over the course of seven days – running around 30km a day – finishing on June 6. The boys are dedicating the run to their late grandfather, John Martin, who passed away from the disease almost seven years ago, while also remembering Robert Martin and Lawrence Teague, who also lost their battle with cancer in recent years.“My grandfather passed away in 2012, who we would have been quite close to, while Robert (Martin), who is our uncle, died late last year and he was in a Macmillan hospice right at the end.“And Lawrence Teague, who is my partner’s grandad, who passed away in 2017.”Despite being over five months from the event, Aaron admitted that there were no nerves quite yet but he was excited about the challenge in front of them. “As I’ve said, it is all getting very real from our point of view, but there are no nerves yet, as soon as we started to tell everyone we knew this was it, there was no going back.“But I’m sure when it gets closer to the time the nerves will start to kick in.”Aaron and Josh have set-up a JustGiving Page here, with all donations being going to Macmillan Cancer Support.You can also keep an eye on the boy’s progress on their Home to Donegal Instagram page here. Two brothers making the dash from Dublin to Donegal for Macmillan was last modified: January 28th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Cancer runcharity runDonegal TownFintownMacmillan Cancerlast_img read more
