Tom Foreman Jr. Journal Special

BOONE — It wasn’t a wing and a prayer that led Appalachia State to a last-minute triumph on Saturday. Granted, it was a Hail Mary, but they had planned it, and against Troy it worked as they practiced.

“They call it God’s Country for a reason,” coach Shawn Clark said after the 32-28 win. “A big part of that is our players. They never give up.

On a very eventful day in which the Mountaineers were celebrated for what they did at Texas A&M a week ago, the Trojans took a 28-24 lead with 10:10 to play. Appalachian State fell nearly 9 minutes behind on the ensuing drive, reaching the Trojans 2 before missing a fourth pass to the end zone.

Troy couldn’t get a first down, and quarterback Gunnar Watson left the back of the end zone for what was believed to be a game-winning safety. As happened in the North Carolina game, some Appalachian State fans were headed for the exits.

There were 20 seconds left and when the Mountaineers took the kick, they had 15 seconds to at least get into the shooting zone. But Chase Brice threw three misses. Of their own 47, there were two other picks, including one they managed to practice.

Clark said the way they drafted it, Dalton Stroman was the designated receiver to get up in the air and get his hands on it. Then he would pass the ball back to Christian Horn, and Kaedin Robinson had to throw the block that would send Horn into the end zone.

The 6-foot-4 Stroman is mounted, challenged by a Trojan defender. Stroman tipped the ball to Horn, who grabbed the ball, circled to his left, got a shield block from Robinson and ran to the front corner of the end zone.

“Executing practices is the reality of game days,” Clark said. “And our children took it to heart.”

Brice said he went through a range of emotions before feeling a range of reactions.

“I threw, and I look. I pray,” he said. “I see the tip, and I see Christian coming, grab it in his breadbasket and I’m like, ‘There’s nobody, there’s nobody!'”

Brice says he started running towards the end zone and then started handing out high-fives. He even helped the students out of the stands to join in the celebration. He even went to friends who played for Troy and told them that they played their hearts out.

Horn said the Mountaineers weren’t in an ideal situation, “but we made it.”

“Just the rehearsal in practice,” he said. “Every day we try to implement these games and do what we have to do.”

Appalachia State trailed 14-7 because Troy’s offense was able to head the ball and make big plays in the passing game. But the climbers seemed to regain their balance as they covered 75 yards in 12 games and consumed 7 minutes and 21 seconds to level the score at 14. Seemingly unfazed, Troy needed that many games to cover that many yards, but in just 1:22 to regain the lead when the clock hit zero for the first half.

The Rock hummed, but with whispers of doubt. Troy was chosen to finish third in the Sun Belt Conference West Division, while Appalachia State was chosen to win the East Division. But it didn’t play out that way.

But in the end, it worked really well for the state of Appalachia. Just as they were training.

University of Wisconsin volleyball players will return one day on Friday night as one of the highlights of their college careers. They felt some of it to some degree in real time.

But what almost became a perfect evening with an NCAA regular season record crowd of 16,833 at the Kohl Center roaring and urging them, ended in a disappointing five-set loss to No. 16 Florida 21-25, 18-25, 28-26, 25-13, 13-15.

Although they didn’t quite pull off the perfect ending, the loss only partially dampened an otherwise electric night for the No. 4 Badgers.

“What a special environment it was,” UW coach Kelly Sheffield said. “At some point it will be a night our players will never forget. To be able to play and for people to stay up all the time and really lift us up when we need it is what we expect from Badger fans. It was just a really special and very appreciable environment.

People also read…

“There were so many people who went out of their way to make this night happen and were given a battle. It was two teams that just fought and left her there. This game will make us better. There is a lot to learn.

The crowd had to make their own excitement for much of the first 2½ sets as the Badgers (5-2) struggled in almost every phase of the game. The Badgers were out of the system for much of the first two sets, resulting in 17 hitting errors and a .059 hitting percentage.

“I think the timing was probably a little big for most of us early on and we were on the mat a few times,” Sheffield said.

Center tackle Danielle Hart said she doesn’t think the team is rushing to rise to the occasion, even though it might seem that way from the outside.

“For me, it felt like we got caught up in our past mistakes and didn’t move on to the next point very well,” Hart said. mistakes and trying to salvage some good stuff out there and fight against that. I think we finally found that for a little while, but it took us way too long.

The third set didn’t offer much early hope as the Gators (8-2) led an 8-0 run to open a 10-5 lead and led by as much as six points on three occasions. But the Badgers started to nibble. Down 19-13, they led a 6-1 streak fueled by two of their season-high 20 blocks, the second-highest total in program history in the rally scoring era. of 25 points.

A service error and a typing error gave Florida two points and a 22-19 lead, but the Badgers responded with a 5-0 run behind Jade Demps’ serve to reach the set point on a Anna Smrek’s kill at 24-22.

The Gators responded with three runs and got match point on an ace from Merritt Beason, who finished with a game-high 21 eliminations.

The Badgers fought that match point and another to 26-25, both times on kills from Smrek. A solo block from Julia Orzol and an ace from Izzy Ashburn sent the match to a fourth set and the crowd in a frenzy.

Hart, who finished the night with 10 kills and eight blocks, credited fans with helping lift the team during that streak.

“A lot of us on the bench were out there saying we could literally feel the conviction from the student section in particular and the fans in the crowd and we really appreciated that,” Hart said. “It felt like a Final Four with a sea of ​​red everywhere and so much more energy than what you get in the Final Four because they’re all Badger fans.”

The Badgers rode that emotional high for a dominating 25-13 win in the fourth set. The Gators became the error-prone team, committing 25 typing errors and hitting -0.025 in the third and fourth sets combined.

“I don’t think it’s anything magical,” Sheffield said. “You get to the point where you have your back against the wall and you have a choice. How are you going to respond? I think we got rid of the hesitation. There were a lot of hesitation points that were there. Generally, when there are points of hesitation, it is because you are thinking too much.

“These guys wanted to play better than them. But a lot of us haven’t played together a lot, so is this your ball, is this my ball? I saw us get rid of it. We started passing the ball much better and being able to manage our attack. Very few times our setters were able to get their hands on the ball in the first two sets.

The targeted Gators Libero rookie Gulce Guctekin all night, sending 58 of their 87 serves in his direction, resulting in four receiving errors.

“The thing is, they weren’t moving the ball,” Sheffield said. “They were calling their shot – this is where we’re going to go and we’re going to do it again and again and again – and we weren’t able to make an adjustment from a passing point of view. It’s something we’re pretty good at. It tells me that we didn’t recognize each other, we didn’t work together for the first hour of the game.

“So what happened? I don’t know. We started passing, we started directing our attack, we started killing, we felt good, we started taking power. momentum. We’re back and they started to feel the pressure because the crowd is into it. They started missing serves, we enjoyed the freebies. We ended up in the fifth.”

The Badgers looked set to end things in storybook fashion as they took an 8-5 lead in the fifth set, helped by three Florida service errors. But then their own errors became too much as they made five hitting errors and two service errors from that point on to give the Gators seven of their last 10 points.

“We had a lead in the fifth set, but you can’t have six hitting errors and two service errors, eight errors in the fifth set and expect to win,” Sheffield said. “But somehow we were two points away from doing it. That’s one of the things about playing matches in that kind of environment and against that kind of team, there’s a lot to take away from that. This part excites me.

For a magical morning, the neighborhood children will take part in a breakfast straight from the pages of a storybook.

In a special event next weekend, neighborhood kids can eat pancakes with Berenstain Bears, munch on fruit with Peter Rabbit and sip juice with Curious George.

And with every bite, children will help ensure that other members of the community have access to the pleasure of reading.

Imagination Library of Johnson County, the local branch of the literacy program founded by Dolly Parton, is hosting its first-ever Storytime Breakfast on September 24. Children and their parents can sit down to a meal of pancakes, sausages, fruit, juice and coffee, while meeting storybook characters, collecting character autographs in a special keepsake book and having their picture taken with the one of the characters by a professional photographer.

Proceeds from the event are donated to the Imagination Library program, which provides a free book each month to participating children, up to age 4.

“It’s a chance to celebrate them and the fact that they fall in love with the books every time they get one in the mail. And to excite them more to read; they meet their favorite characters and get autographs. Seeing them in real life, we thought it would be a wonderful experience for them,” said Susan Crisafulli, event organizer for Imagination Library of Johnson County.

Imagination Library is an organization founded by Parton in 1995. The idea was to help the children of his home in Sevier County, Tennessee achieve their dreams, by stimulating their imaginations and encouraging reading within the family from an early age.

Through her foundation, Parton was able to send every child in the county who signed a book each month.

In 2000, the program was so successful that Parton announced that she would partner with communities across the United States to air it nationally. There are over 2,000 affiliate programs worldwide. The program also exists in Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and Ireland.

The Imagination Library has now sent over 188 million books to children. As of September 2022, 77,180 of those books have gone to children in the Johnson County area.

“It’s really amazing and rewarding,” Crisafulli said. “Part of what makes it so rewarding is hearing from parents how much of a difference the books have made for their children.”

The concept is simple: children receive a free book every month from birth to age 4, for a total of 60 free books when they enter kindergarten. Children “graduate” from the program on their fifth birthday.

The first book the children receive is “The Little Engine That Could”, which includes a welcome letter from Dolly. The last book they receive is “Look Out, Kindergarten, Here I Come!”

At this point, 2,002 children are currently enrolled and 1,407 have already “graduated” from the program.

The program is 100% free for families and is currently open to Johnson County residents in Franklin, Bargersville, Needham, Morgantown, Whiteland, Edinburgh, Trafalgar and Nineveh. They hope to add Greenwood in future years, to cover the entire county, Crisafulli said.

In order for the book distribution to take place, the Johnson County chapter raises funds and registers the children. The group pays about $25 per year to provide one book per month for each child.

This weekend’s Storybook Breakfast will help raise that money, Crisafulli said.

“One thing that makes fundraising work well is if it’s consistent with your mission. Rather than doing a golf tournament or a 5K, doing something for the kids who receive our books made more sense to us,” Crisafulli said.

The idea for the breakfast came from a similar program that another chapter of the Imagination Library in Canada had organized as a fundraiser. Working with the organizers of this event, local Imagination Library leaders have modified it to fit a Johnson County audience and are slated to launch this fall.

“We’re a different place with a different community, so we tried to make it something that would work really well for our families here,” Crisafulli said.

Breakfast is $10 per ticket, with each child 4 and under free with a paying adult – one child free per paying adult. Inside Grace United Methodist Church, they’ll find a literary fantasy land, with some of their favorite characters frolicking around them. Along with familiar faces such as Corduroy the bear, princesses and other special characters will also be featured, Crisafulli said.

Two different lunches will be offered on September 24, one from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. and another from 11 a.m. to noon.

Tickets are on sale in advance and will be available until the end of both sessions, Crisafulli said. All participants look forward to a joyous event, with the hope of bringing it back every year.

And they want to enroll even more children in the Imagination Library.

“These are more than books. It’s not just a collection of paper with drawings and words on it. They are small, life-changing tools for children, and they make a difference in the life of the child and their family,” Crisafulli said.

Marshall enjoys storybook victory over Notre Dame https://manteobooksellers.com/marshall-enjoys-storybook-victory-over-notre-dame/ Wed, 14 Sep 2022 19:54:07 +0000 https://manteobooksellers.com/marshall-enjoys-storybook-victory-over-notre-dame/ HUNTINGTON, W.Va.

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) — The path to one of Marshall’s biggest wins was paved by picking up transfer portal talent, magic tricks and a sophomore coach’s belief that a Sun Belt Conference team can be as good as any opponent, especially a legendary giant like Notre Dame.

Fifteen games into his career at Marshall, coach Charles Huff’s Thundering Herd became the talk of college football with a 26-21 win Saturday over 20.5-point favorite Fighting Irish.

Crowds of fans, some of them crying, greeted Marshall’s team bus as it returned to the Huntington campus on Saturday night. Huff responded to 350 text messages. Marshall’s new chairman, Brad Smith, former CEO of software company Intuit, has been congratulated by executives across Silicon Valley.

It was Marshall’s second victory against a Top 10 team. The other also came on the road, in 2013 against No. 6 Kansas State.

Gone is Notre Dame’s streak of 80 consecutive weeks in the Associated Press poll and 42 straight wins over unranked opponents.

“Phenomenal weekend,” Huff said. “Not just for our football team and our players, but for West Virginia State and this community, and everyone who bleeds green. I think it also gives college football its kick, a boost, energy. I think that’s college football.”

And it’s still going. The local newspaper, The Herald-Dispatch, is busy selling reprints of Sunday’s front page featuring a photo with the headline “Shocker in South Bend.”

Pageviews on Marshall’s website at the time of the game were more than triple those on a typical Saturday. Traffic to the university’s admissions pages on Saturday and Monday were both higher than at any time in previous months.

After a visit Monday from Governor Jim Justice, himself a Marshall graduate, it was time to get back to work.

“Obviously we have to move on,” quarterback Henry Colombi said. “But it’s great to be able to reflect on what we’ve done. Our community is still buzzing about it and I think it’s going to be like that for a while, when you have a big win like this in school history. So I think that’s great.

There was more electricity on Tuesday when running back Rasheen Ali returned to training for Marshall. One of the top freshmen in the nation a year ago when he rushed for 1,400 yards, Ali took an undisclosed personal leave from the team ahead of the season.

It’s uncertain whether Ali will play when Marshall (2-0) travels to Bowling Green (0-2) on Saturday. When he does, it will add to the burden of concern for opposing defenses. His replacement, Khalan Laborn, is ninth in the FBS with 265 yards, matching almost all of his production when he was at Florida State.

Other transfers that have paid immediate dividends include Colombi, who has played at Texas Tech for the past two years and leads the nation in completion percentage at 85.1%.

Huff is in his first head coaching job and he is the first black football head coach at Marshall. To know Huff is to understand that when he’s not in business mode on the court, he’s lightweight. His laughter and smile are often contagious. It celebrates the great efforts of its players.

During the last day of summer camp, Huff brought in magician Carl Michael for a team bonding event. To say it was a success would be an understatement.

“I’ve never seen anything like it,” Colombi said. “I still think about it today.”

Michael also made Huff dance for his players.

“He can dance better than me,” Colombi said.

Turns out the session was a good transition into the season.

“If they had that energy on Saturday that they had for the magic show, we would have won by 50,” Huff said. “No question.”

In reality, this exhibit had a higher purpose.

“What you need to do is show your players that you are real,” Huff said. “That means sometimes you have to be tough on them. This means sometimes you have to put your arm around them. This means that sometimes you have to laugh and joke with them. In any organization, when you see that your leader is real, you have a deeper connection, you have a deeper understanding, you have a deeper appreciation for all that is involved in what comes from there.

Huff was associate head coach and running backs coach under Nick Saban in Alabama. His hiring to Marshall in January 2021 came just weeks after the Crimson Tide routed Ohio State for the national championship.

After being hired, Huff visited a cemetery in Huntington where a memorial honors the victims of the worst disaster in American sports history. It gave him insight into the community’s unwavering commitment and passion for a football program that nearly came to an end when a plane crash in 1970 killed 75 players, coaches, fans and flight crew.

Smith, the college president who grew up near the crash site in nearby Kenova, referred to a quote from Dallas Cowboys Hall of Fame coach Tom Landry when describing Huff: “A coach is someone who tells you what you don’t want to hear. , which makes you see what you don’t want to see, so you can be who you always knew you could be.

“The way I see him speaking to our community, to our university and to every student-athlete as he sees who you are and who you are capable of being, he makes it his life’s purpose to connect those two,” Smith said.

Huff teaches his players to stay balanced and prepare the same way, regardless of the opponent. Asked how Marshall can hedge against a potential disappointment at Bowling Green, Huff’s response was direct and simple.

“Is their field 100 yards by 53 and a third? Do they have goal posts? Houf replied “If they have those two things, everything will be fine.”

New upgrades unveiled at two Kingwood attractions

Following temporary closures for improvement projects, Kingwood Center Gardens is celebrating the reopening of the Peacock Playhouse and the Storybook Trail.

The Peacock Playhouse has recently been refreshed and modernized. The intentional redesign and expansion of educational opportunities will enhance children’s experiences. After a thorough cleaning and reset, new hands-on learning stations and an improved reading corner have been added, along with infrastructure and equipment to expand educational programs. Most zones engage and stimulate students, but a low stimulation zone has also been created to provide an inclusive space for children who prefer quiet spaces.

The colorful and inviting outdoor space has added interactive features, raised garden beds, an instruction area, and additional seating that includes an ADA picnic table. This outdoor space provides a space for creative play and is the gateway to the Storybook Trail.

Scottie Scheffler’s dream season seemed destined for a dream ending.

With a six-stroke lead over three rounds of the season-ending Tour championship, Scheffler was heading for his fifth win of the year, plus the FedEx Cup title and the $18 million salary that will win him. accompanied.

But in the final round at East Lake, Scheffler couldn’t rise to the occasion. He bogged three of his first six holes, and on the seventh hole Rory McIlroy had caught him. He and McIlroy dueled midway through the heat, but when Scheffler failed to get up and down on 16, McIlroy took the lead and never gave it up.

McIlroy, who opened the tournament with a triple bogey and at one point was double digits off the lead, was the unlikely winner.

And then something even more unlikely happened.

As McIlroy left the 18th green, one of the first people he encountered was the father of the player he had just beaten by seven strokes and, in essence, taken millions from.

Annoying? It could have been, of course. But instead, it turned out to be something more comforting.

McIlroy walked straight up to Scheffler’s father, who is also named Scott, hugged him and said, “I’m sorry.”

I am sorry. Imagine that. Apologize for doing your job.

“No, you don’t have to do that,” Scott said.

“He deserves it,” McIlroy said; at this point, they were talking over each other. “He’s had an incredible year.”

“I love you too,” Scott said smiling.

It was one of the sweetest scenes you’ve ever seen in the fierce world of professional golf. And it didn’t stop there.

Meredith Scheffler, Scottie’s wife, also stepped in for a hug.

“So proud of you,” she said. ” It’s incredible. You kicked ass today. Congratulation.”

Then it was Scottie’s mother’s turn. Another hug for McIlroy and more words of encouragement: “Congratulations. Good work. Good work.”

Nobody likes to see their son or husband lose, but if it has to happen, McIlroy qualifies as a lovable foil. Especially this year. Faced with the rise of LIV Golf, McIlroy has become the most vocal brand ambassador on the PGA Tour. If he does not sing the praises of the Tour, he needles his upstart competitor.

As McIlroy himself said after his victory on Sunday: “It has been a tumultuous time for the world of men’s professional golf. I was right in the middle of that. … I guess every chance I get, I try to defend what I think is the best place in the world to play elite professional golf. It is in some ways fitting that I have been able to do this today to close out a year that has been very, very difficult and different.

In some appropriate manners? McIlroy was the perfect champion at the moment.

Ask the father of the guy he beat.
