Jeremy Lynn hopes to bounce back

first_imgNow, Lynn is focused on making adjustments to pick up his first victory at the team’s next tournament. “I don’t know what it’s about yet,” Lynn said. “I’ve just been enjoying the process of how to do it. I love movies, always have, and it’s cool to start doing it.” Jeremy Lynn hopes to bounce backThe junior started the year without a singles victory for the Wildcat Invite. Jack WhiteOctober 14, 2015Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintJunior Jeremy Lynn started the 2015 season going 2-0 in doubles with senior Ruben Weber and 0-2 in singles at the Arizona Wildcat Invitational over two weeks ago.   Now approaching his second tournament of the year — the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Regionals — Lynn will look to get his first singles victory. Lynn said he’s made a short video for one of his film classes and is looking forward to making a 10-minute spot by the end of the semester. “[In high school] I thought he had a really good forehand with a really good serve,” Young said. Lynn went 2-3 in doubles as a freshman but only competed in one doubles match last year, which he lost. “He’s working on some new things in his game,” head coach Geoff Young said. “I don’t think he played his best tennis in [the Wildcat Invitational], but I think that ever since then, he’s been playing better.” Off the court, Lynn originally thought he would be a business major, but he is currently studying film and media.center_img To start his junior season, Lynn was defeated 6-2, 6-1 by Jason Jaruvang of Arizona at the Wildcat Invitational. In the consolation round, he was defeated 6-4, 6-2 by Felix Schumann of Northern Arizona University. Lynn joined the Gophers from Joplin, Mo., where he won the state championship in high school in 2013. Young said he is optimistic Lynn will bounce back at the next tournament. “I’m looking to become a more well-rounded player and be able to get into the net a little more, be more aggressive,” Lynn said. “So I’ve been working on my sway on my backhand. I think it can be an effective shot and throw people off.” Lynn has seen playing time in all three of his collegiate seasons, finishing 3-11 in singles as a freshman but improving to 7-7 as a sophomore. “I love to watch movies and [want to] eventually start making movies,” Lynn said. “He’s been working on his slice backhand and coming to the net more,” Young said. “I’m really excited the rest of the fall, watching him play.”last_img read more

Sweetie Candy Company, which you can visit HERE, or at 6770 Brookpark Road Cleveland, Ohio 44129**LORAIN, OHIO– When it comes to Lorain County sports, there are few rivalries as good as the Lorain Titans and Elyria Pioneers.Thursday night gave us another great installment, as the the two schools went head-to-head at George Daniel Field in Lorain. This year, it’s Lorain (2-1) that will own the bragging rights, as they defeated Elyria (0-3), 38-17.This year’s contest was bound to be another physical affair, and fans got a taste of that as the game was scoreless after the first quarter, and largely paced by both teams’ defense.In the second quarter, however, the Titans came out and got two quick scores to go up 14-0. The first came when Daylin Dower punched the ball in for a two-yard touchdown run on a continuation of the Lorain drive that ended the first quarter. Dower’s night ended with 96 yards on 18 carries.The second came about four minutes later, when Mikey Harrell ran the ball in from the three-yard line. Quarterback Justin Sturgill was able to complete the two-point conversion to give Lorain a 14-0 lead.On the ensuing drive, however, the Pioneers would answer the Titans and score a touchdown when quarterback Dontae Beckett found Deviian Williams on a 31-yard touchdown pass. Williams ended with 74 yards on seven receptions.The next touchdown also came courtesy of Beckett, when he found Scott Ethington in the end zone during the closing seconds of the half.Considering they allowed two quick scores, Lorain head coach Dave McFarland challenged his team to come out with more focus in the second half.“I was just infuriated with the second quarter because it’s about character, it’s about doing the right things in life, and you get punched and you gotta keep fighting,” McFarland said when asked about Elyria’s comeback. “So, we challenged them at halftime to come out and play with energy and character, and just fight.”And fight they did. Following the break, Lorain struck first again. On the first play of their first drive in the half, Harrell ran the ball for a 78-yard touchdown to give the Titans a six-point advantage, 20-14. Harrell had a rather impressive evening for the Titans, ending with 92 yards and his two touchdowns on nine carries.“I was excited after that because he came a long way, I grew up with him, played with him since eighth grade, and I knew he always had the potential to do special things like that,” Sturgill said of Harrell’s 78-yard run.While the Titan offense came out after halftime strong, the Elyria offense was nowhere to be found.“We come out, and we just laid an egg,” Elyria head coach Sean Arno said. “We made too many mistakes on offense, various things and I’m not sure why.”The Pioneers opened the fourth quarter by getting their lone score of the second half on a field goal. Lorain, however, would once again answer immediately, as Sturgill found Tyshawn Lighty for a 70-yard touchdown pass to give the Titans a 26-17 lead.  Lighty contributed 114 total receiving yards to the Lorain offense.Elyria began their next drive, but it was once again stopped short as the ball was fumbled near the Pioneers’ own 30-yard line. Lorain’s Isaiah McDowell, a 5’5” linebacker, would come away with it, and run all the way into the end zone to give the Titans a 32-17 point advantage.“He’s a tough kid, he wants to play football,” McFarland said. “He’s what high school football is all about. A small guy with a lot of toughness, a lot of want too, and he makes things happen.”At that point, lightning literally struck, and the game was sent into a lightning delay with just over nine minutes left to play.When the game continued, Lorain was incredibly successful at running down the clock, but still scored one last touchdown when Dakota Mincy punched the ball in to make the final 38-17.Sturgill ended the game going three-of-eight passing with 114 yards and one touchdown.For the Pioneers, Beckett went 14-of-21 , with two touchdowns and 161 passing yards. He also rushed for 32 yards on 14 carries. Beckett also split time with Tristan Arno, who went two-for-nine with 43 passing yards and one interception.As the Titans were able to overcome the Pioneers in the second half of the game, McFarland offered a pretty simple explanation for what he thought changed.“I was really proud of the character of our kids in the second half, and I think that was the difference.”PLAYER OF THE GAMEWhile the Titans had plenty of guys get in on their offensive action, the honor this week goes to Mikey Harrell. His 92 yards on nine carries and two touchdowns were the standout performance of the game.“Savon (Chavis) hurt his groin early on, and Mikey went in for him at fullback,” McFarland said of Harrell’s performance. “He’s not a very big kid and he got beat up a little bit, and then he hit that seam. That was a great play for us. But that’s part of running option football, you dive, dive, dive and then you hit one.”**This recap brought to you by b.a.

It’s what I want to do, I want to make a difference and hopefully I did that today, said Robinson“The message from Tanya as I came on was to just be confident and have a go at the defence. Both me and Ebony are fast, so we wanted to cause them a different problem to one that have been facing.“We came on wanting to get more crosses into the box and more shots on goal, it took a bit longer than we wanted but we finally got the breakthrough.“It was a really tough and physical game, but the girls rode it out and got the result we wanted.“Every time I’m on the pitch I want to give my all and show what I can do, so hopefully with whoever we get in the next round it will give me another opportunity to play.”Bristol City Women will be ball number 9 in the Fifth Round draw, which will take place live on BBC World News Channel at 6:40pm this evening (Monday, January 27th).last_img read more

Havertz ‘wants Chelsea transfer more than Sancho wants Man Utd move’ with deal ‘set to be done after Europa League’

first_img Real or Fake? Shark Attacks Helicopter Omg this is awesome 🙂 KAI HAVERTZ is said to be pushing for a move to the Premier League more than Jadon Sancho.The Bundesliga stars are both linked with a move to the English top flight.Kai Havertz is pushing for a move to Chelsea Credit: AFP or licensorsJadon Sancho has started pre-season training with Dortmund Credit: Getty Images – GettyHavertz, valued at £90million, is subject to heavy interest from Chelsea while United are at loggerheads with Borussia Dortmund, who price 20-year-old Sancho at £108m.According to Sky Sports, of the pair it is Havertz, 21, who “is the one who is most keen to move as soon as possible”. It is understood Chelsea have already agreed personal terms with the playmaker after Petr Cech flew to Germany for talks.But Bayer Leverkusen publicly insisted if their valuation is not met, Havertz will not leave.The player is reportedly keen to wrap up a move as soon as Leverkusen’s Europa League campaign is over.They play Inter Milan in the quarter finals tonight.United on the other hand face a battle to get their transfer for Sancho over the line.Like Leverkusen, Dortmund stand firm they are in no rush to sell unless their price tag is met.But United have made it clear they have no intention of paying £108m up front for the England forward.The Germans told Old Trafford bosses they wanted an agreement in place by August 10. But it appears no deal has been met with the winger boarding Dortmund’s flight to Switzerland to start their preparations for next season.United are currently in Germany to complete their Europa League campaign.And they are understood to see the Dortmund’s deadline as meaningless with the transfer window open until October 5.On Saturday SunSport reported meeting the price tag for Sancho might lead to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side potentially blowing their entire transfer funds on one player. It also emerged Sancho will be offered a new £173,000-a-week deal at Dortmund if he stays.Although it would make him one of German football’s highest earners, it is still dwarfed by the £350k-a-week he is likely to get at Old Trafford.Sancho attended a house party in the UK with rap stars Krept and Konan at the weekend. But Dortmund posted a statement confirming they were happy for the 20-year-old to be in England.Communications chief Sascha Fligge said: “It’s common and fine for players to go home before a training camp if they’re not risky. “The same goes for Jadon.“From our point of view, the pictures that have been shown to us so far do not violate.”It is claimed former City starlet Sancho wishes to return to Manchester, but could be involved in a nervy summer saga.Man Utd transfer target Sancho spotted at UK house party Travel Diary // Vietnam 2017 Amazing movies best funny animals 10 INCREDIBLE Space Launch Failures!center_img People Slammed By Massive Waves 4 Rebekah Vardy scores an impressive penalty in six-inch heels Best caption wins🏆 Credit @4×4 Source: Soccer – thesun.co.uklast_img read more
