It’s going to be quite a busy summer for Syracuse football in terms of the team’s recruiting efforts as well as welcoming high school prospects to the Hill for visits.

According to its Twitter page, 2023 hires three stars LaNorris Sellers plans to make an official visit to Orange on June 24which is exciting to hear.

The 6-foot-2 Sellers, a junior from South Florence High School in Florence, South Carolina, is one of the top dual-threat quarterbacks across the country in his class.

He is a consensus three-star player, according to all major recruiting services. Sellers have said he will commit to the ‘Cuse in March, and I think his commitment to the Orange is a huge fundamental for the team in the 2023 cycle.

Syracuse football will welcome QB signee LaNorris Sellers to central New York next month.

Besides the vendors, there are plenty of recruiting targets planning to head to the ‘Cuse in June. Two of those high school prospects we recently rated are 2023 three-star linebacker Zyian Moultrie-Goddard of Iona Prep School in New Rochelle, NY, and 2023 three-star offensive lineman Eric King with Saint Prep School. Peter in Jersey City, New Jersey

Going back to Sellers, he had previously given a verbal commitment to Virginia, a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference. However, at the end of the 2021 college football campaign, Cavaliers head coach Bronco Mendenhall stepped down.

Additionally, UVA offensive coordinator Robert Anae and quarterbacks coach Jason Beck left that team to take on similar roles with Syracuse football.

The technical staff of Orange offered a scholarship to Sellers, who had reopened his recruitment in mid-January. He then committed to Syracuse football, revealing his pick via Twitter on March 6.

Throughout its recruiting process, besides the ‘Cuse and Virginia, other offers the salespeople had gotten were from Virginia Tech, Memphis, Washington State, Appalachia State, and State from Georgia.

ESPN and On3 rank him among the top 15 quarterbacks of the 2023 cycle. Virtually every major recruiting service places him among the top 10 players in South Carolina.

Both industry-generated recruiting services, 247Sports Composite and On3 Consensus, have ranked him nationally in this class.

The 247Sports Composite, at the time of this writing, placed the sellers at No. 642 overall, while the On3 Consensus placed it at No. 656 nationally.

I’m excited to have the LaNorris vendors heading to the Hill in a few weeks!

SANFORD, Fla. – Is it cool to take off your old high school jersey? That’s what happened with now Buffalo Bills wide receiver Gabriel Davis. The ceremony in the basketball hall of his old high school was pretty cool. However, his efforts that led to this point took place long before.

Before he was a star, before he even signed to play for UCF, Davis did things a little differently than a lot of other players. It wasn’t enough for him to train, hit the weights, or watch movies of himself and his opponents. His speech may not even put his efforts in perspective either. Still, the expression on Davis’ face shows he’s proud of how far he’s come.

That’s quite a Hail Mary!

A pair of New York football fans have called an audible in their $6 billion class action lawsuit against the Jets, Giants and the National Football League.

They modified their suit which originally required both teams to pack their pads and leave Garden State for the Big Apple.

Now they’re making a slightly more manageable request – teams can stay in New Jersey but have to drop “New York” from their names.

“New York City is the Big Apple, home to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, Wall Street and the Stock Exchange, the ticker tape parades of Broadway musicals…” states the amended lawsuit before Manhattan federal court filed last month.

“MetLife Stadium is located in the swamps of East Rutherford, NJ…, which has a population of less than 10,000, the 116th largest city in New Jersey. It’s not exactly an exciting and romantic destination[,] and the Giants, Jets and MetLife Stadium have absolutely no connection to the city, county or state of New York.

MetLife Stadium is only seven miles from Manhattan.
Charles Wenzelberg/New York Post

The Giants fled the Empire State for not-so-green pastures in the Meadowlands in 1976, and the Jets followed 8 years later. Both teams now share MetLife Stadium after playing at the Meadowlands in the Giants’ former stadium.

Plaintiffs Abdiell Suero and Maggie Wilkins insist they were duped by false advertising and other fraudulent misleading practices into believing the Giants and Jets were still playing in New York and shelling out green to see Blue Blue and Gang Green play at MetLife Stadium.

Suero, who describes himself as a football fanatic, told the Post he was shocked a few years ago when he found out his beloved Giants were actually called East Rutherford, NJ, as their home. It was then too late because he had already bought tickets.

The Manhattan-based financial representative joked that the experience was as unbearable as watching Joe Judge coach the Giants in recent years – and the schlep at MetLife made the experience even worse.

“I spent more time traveling to get to the game than the game actually took,” said Suero, 32, the lone complainant in the initial complaint filed in January.

After the league and clubs mocked the teams’ request to return to New York as a Mark Sanchez ‘fumble’, the complaint was amended late last month with the new request.

The amended request also asks MetLife Stadium to drop its “cashless” concession policy that has been in place since last season, claiming it violates New Jersey law. He added Wilkins, a New Mexico native who now resides in the Big Apple, as the second plaintiff.

The class action also seeks to represent anyone who has been tricked by team marketing since 2016 into attending NFL games at the stadium.

Suero and Wilkins stepped up their argument on Monday.

Their attorney Evan Spencer has filed legal papers outlining how MetLife Stadium and the rest of the Meadowlands Swamps were once a haven for illegal toxic waste dumpers – as well as traditional waste disposal businesses – and should never be confused with the Big Apple.

“Not only is the Meadowlands not in New York, but it was the site of one of the nation’s largest dumping grounds for decades before defendants’ stadiums were built on it,” Spencer wrote, demanding that the business is progressing.

He also claimed that the defendants only recently cleaned up the MetLife Stadium website after the lawsuit was filed to clarify that the venue was not in New York.

The NFL, Jets and Giants filed legal documents on April 25 seeking the dismissal of the lawsuit, insisting that the teams’ “continued use of ‘New York’ as part of their team is not misleading at all – it just refers to the teams hometown.”

“These claims are calculated to score points in the headlines – not in the courtroom,” their lawyers wrote.

They also noted that MetLife is just 7 miles from Manhattan – which is well within the 75-mile radius covering the teams’ NFL territory rights that cover parts of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

Yet Giants 2022 first-round pick Evan Neal recently admitted that even he thought Big Blue played in New York until he was drafted by the club last month.

“I didn’t even know the Giants were in Jersey. So that was news to me,” said the Florida native and former University of Alabama star, laughing, speaking to reporters two weeks ago. “I thought they were in New York.”

The Tigers sport one of the most iconic looks in college football.

Largely unchanged over the decades, LSU is best known for wearing white home jerseys (a tradition that remained virtually unbroken except for an 11-year stretch from 1983 to 1994) and its classic helmets.

The main football team covers have mostly stayed the same since 1980, but with a surprising number of alternate options and slight tweaks you may not even have been aware of, the style story Tigers’ Saturday night may be a little more interesting than many have thought.

Here’s a look at how the LSU helmet design has evolved over the years.

Before 1946: Leather helmets

As was the case in college football at the time, LSU donned leather helmets until the 1946 season. While certainly not at all safe, these helmets certainly had a charm. While many of us may think helmets from this era are generic in color, the Tigers implemented a purple and gold look that bears some resemblance to modern Michigan helmets.

When the Tigers finally ditched the tough leather helmets heading into the 1946 season, they opted for an old gold helmet, which you can see in the photo above from a game against Texas in 1950. Like the leather helmets before them, these covers had no masks. This change would not come until about a decade later.

1956-71: Yellow helmets with numbers

AP Photo/File

It was around this time that the modern LSU helmet began to take shape, although there are still many differences. In 1956, head coach Paul Dietzel changed the color of the helmet from old gold to yellow gold, and a year later the Tigers began adding numbers to the side of the helmets. It’s a tradition that’s mostly associated with Alabama these days, but it was pretty common in that era of college football. These helmets also introduced the center stripes.

1972-76: Tiger logo introduced

LSU made a big change heading into the 1972 season, debuting the Tiger logo which, despite some changes, remains on the side of the helmet to this day. These helmets still had quite a few differences from the ones that would take its place a few years from now, primarily the fact that the “LSU” block logo was inside the Tiger logo rather than outside, as it would become the case later.

1977-79: Classic design, gray face mask

AP Photo

Beginning in 1977, the Tigers released what is essentially their modern helmet. It featured the curved LSU lettering above the Tiger logo, as it still does to this day. The only real difference was that these initial helmets featured a gray face mask as opposed to the purple mask that would replace it after just three seasons.

1980-2013: The classic

Matt Stamey-USA TODAY Sports Copyright Matt Stamey

LSU added the purple mask before the 1980 season, resulting in a design so timeless it would hardly be changed for over three decades. These iconic covers were donned for LSU’s national titles in 2003 and 2007, and some of the best seasons in Tigers history are associated with them. Occasional replacements aside, these remain LSU’s go-to helmet.

1997, 2007, 2015-17, 2019, 2021: White Helmet

Christopher Hanewinckel – USA TODAY Sports

The most commonly used alternative for the Tigers, the White Helmets made their first appearance in the 1997 Independence Bowl against Notre Dame. They were used again a decade later to promote Hurricane Katrina relief in 2007, and they’ve been used sporadically since, most recently against Texas A&M last season.

2009: Roast pork

Matt Stamey – USA TODAY Sports

LSU paid homage to its 1950s look in a 2009 overtime win over the Arkansas Razorbacks. These modern-style old gold helmets were part of the Nike Pro Combat Series, and the uniform ensemble was nicknamed “Couchon De Lait,” which translates to “roast pork” in Cajun. God, I love the SEC.

2011: Fight pro white

LSU had another Pro Combat look in 2011, and like the one it wore in 2009, these uniforms were only worn once for a game against Auburn. These all-white uniforms also featured a white helmet which looks very similar to the alternates, but features a gold stripe down the center instead of a white stripe.

2014-Present: Scary Tiger

AP Photo/Michael Clubb

You’d be forgiven for not even knowing that LSU changed its main look in 2014, but indeed, the design was changed slightly to make the Tiger logo look a little more menacing. Guess these are a little scarier? Either way, LSU wore them through its best season in school history and one of the best in college football history in 2019, so they’ll always hold a special place in the lore of college football. Tigers.

2016: White Retrospectives

LSU debuted another white helmet look against Mississippi State in 2016, which features jersey numbers on the side and the original LSU “L” logo. These retro uniforms have only been worn once.

2018: Purple Helmets

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

LSU likes to show off new uniform looks against Mississippi State, and it did it again in 2018 with these all-new purple helmets. Like many of the previous alternatives on this list, these have not been ported since. I don’t know about you, but I think it’s a nice look the Tigers should consider bringing back at some point.

2018: Yellow with numbers

Purple helmets weren’t the only unique look tried out during the 2018 season. Against Ole Miss, LSU wore their normal jerseys but replaced the usual helmet sticker with jersey numbers. It can be a little jarring when it’s not part of an alternate uniform set, but it’s still pretty slick.

After his hometown Tennessee Titans drafted him the sixth round of the 2022 NFL Draftnow former Tennessee defensive back Theo Jackson was given a new shirt number ahead of the official start with his new team. The No. 204 overall draft pick will officially begin his pro career at Tennessee rookie minicamp later this week. Having worn No. 26 during his five seasons with the Vols, Jackson is move to No. 29 for the Titans.

The Nashville native, who played on the road to Nissan Stadium at John Overton High School before signing with Tennessee as part of the 2017 class under head coach Butch Jones, turned an All-SEC season in 2021 into the opportunity to be drafted by his hometown team. Jackson was Tennessee’s fourth leading tackle (78) as a super senior season and became a leader and playmaker for his team’s defense. He led SEC defensive backs in tackles for loss (nine) and ranked second in the conference in pass breakups (12).

(Want the latest scoop on Tennessee football and basketball? Make sure you know – take five seconds to sign up for our FREE Flights newsletter now!)

Although Jackson was not invited to Reese’s Senior Bowl or the NFL Scouting Combine, the Titans took a close look at the player both at Pro Day in Tennessee, where he clocked 4.46 seconds 40, and at the Pro Day the franchise hosted for Nashville-area Prospects.

“Tennessee coaches, when asked about their prospects, continued to rave about Theo and what he meant to their football team,” Titans general manager Jon Robinson said after the draft. “Play it safe, play nickel, can play an outside corner. Kind of a versatile piece there in the secondary.

The 6-foot-1, 198-pound Jackson played safety in his first three seasons at Tennessee before moving to the Star/Nickel position in the 2020 season. He remained at the position as the Vols changed sides. coaching staff for the second time in his career, and he thrived for coordinator Tim Banks in 2021. Jackson also played safety for part of the win at Missouri and moved to cornerback in their Tennessee final at the Music City Bowl as the Vols called on his versatility due to injuries and other absences.

As a sixth-round pick, Jackson is set for a four-year rookie contract worth a total of $3,852,452, including a guaranteed signing bonus of $203,748.

“I’m not going to lie to you, I’m going through so many emotions right now, but this is the best feeling,” Jackson said after being drafted by the team he grew up watching games from. “To grow up in Nashville, go to school in Tennessee, then come back for the pro ball. It’s really… I can’t even think of the words to even say it now. I’m just excited. I can’t wait to get to work.

The shirt had belonged since the end of the controversial encounter to opposing midfielder Steve Hodge, who swapped shirts with Maradona after England’s 2-1 defeat in Mexico City.

The shirt worn by Argentine soccer legend Diego Maradona when he scored twice against England in the 1986 World Cup, including the infamous ‘hand of God’ goal, has been auctioned off for $9.3 million, a record for any sporting goods item, Sotheby’s said on Wednesday.

Seven bidders competed for the garment in an auction that began April 20 and ended Wednesday morning, Sotheby’s said.

“This historic jersey is a tangible reminder of an important moment not only in the history of sport, but also in the history of the 20th century,” said Sotheby’s head of streetwear and modern collectibles, Brahm Wachter. , in a press release after the sale.

“This is arguably the most coveted football shirt ever to come to auction, so it’s only fitting that it now holds the auction record for any such item,” he said. .

The shirt had belonged since the end of the controversial encounter to opposing midfielder Steve Hodge, who swapped shirts with Maradona after England’s 2-1 defeat in Mexico City.

Maradona’s daughter cast doubt on the sale earlier this month when she claimed the shirt up for auction was the one her father wore in the scoreless first half, not the second when he scored his two goals.

Sotheby’s, however, insisted they had the right shirt.

The previous record for a jersey worn by a game in any sport was $5.6 million, set in 2019 for a jersey Babe Ruth wore while at the New York Yankees.

As the summer months begin to roll into the Plains, recruiting is a major focus for Auburn’s football coaching staff after spring training. The coaches have conducted individual assessments with the players on the roster and are likely still buying the transfer portal for new talent, but the main focus is on securing the class of 2023.

Many high school recruits have begun narrowing their lists of potential schools, posting their top schools, and embarking on the home stretch of their recruiting processes. Auburn football has remained in the mix for several top prospects lately, and added another over the weekend.

4-star defensive lineman Sydir Mitchell, of Oradell, New Jersey, narrowed his school roster to nine on Sunday afternoon, and included Auburn football with Kentucky, Miami, Rutgers, Texas, Georgia , Texas A&M, LSU and Tennessee:

Mitchell is ranked 224th overall prospect and 32nd defensive lineman in the recruiting class of 2023 and is New Jersey State’s No. 3 player. He’s only been to the Plains once, and that was for the Junior Day event the Tigers hosted in March.

According to Auburn Live, Mitchell really enjoyed seeing real Auburn football practice and has a great relationship with Tigers defensive line coach Jimmy Brumbaugh:

“I love it, man,” Mitchell said with a smile. “He always has a smile on his face, but he’s really intense, you know, locked up in training too. He knows when it’s game time and when to be serious. I like the way he does his plans and things like that. He lets everyone have a chance in practice.

The DL is likely to take more visits before planning to make its final decision in August.
