He batted .268 with 17 home runs and 52 RBIs, down significantly from the .305/30/91 he produced a year earlier.

They had a great routine, with a technical score of 31.39, and took over first place with a score of 59.99, taking over first. The score seemed somewhat low given the high technical score. Israel’s Ronald Zilberberg and Adel Tankova were next, scoring a 46.66, which put them in fourth, but was also their season’s best in their first ever Olympics.

And Mayfield knows where his career is taking him next.

You get a bunch of grown men that work really hard, so it’ll be different going from 18- [to] 22-year-olds to people that are feeding their families, their children, Mayfield said. A lot of these guys make their money just based off work ethic and never quitting.

Mayfield thinks that’s what he is bringing to the NFL, not Manziel-like baggage.

Also, I wish she would have done a little more fact-checking because I finished high school and didn’t leave early. I graduated high school.

To be an African-American kid and grow up in the inner-city with a single parent mother and not being financially stable and to be where I am today, I think I’ve defeated the odds. I want every kid to know that, and I want everybody to know that the youth can do it as well. That’s why I won’t shut up and dribble. I mean too much to my two boys here, their best friend here, my daughter at home, my wife, my family, and all these other kid who look up to me for inspiration who are trying to find a way out, and find some leeway on how they can become as great as they can be and how their dreams can become a reality.

With the Brewers trying to build off their surprising 2017 season that finished a victory short of the postseason, Braun embraced the opportunity.
Braun hasn’t played the infield since 2007, his first season in the majors. He was the NL Rookie of the Year after batting a team-best .324 with a league-leading .619 slugging percentage, but he committed 26 errors at third base and moved to left field the following season.

Save for a two-year stint in right field, Braun has been in left ever since.

I don’t expect it to be easy by any means, he said. I expect it to be challenging.

The table above accounts for nine of those 17 places, with the Mountain West-leading Nevada Wolf Pack the exception. However, Eric Musselman’s squad (22-5, 14-2) gained both separation in the league race and a crucial Group 1 road win by defeating nearest rival Boise State (19-6, 10-4) on the Broncos’ home floor on Wednesday night. At this point, the only way Boise, or any other non-Nevada Mountain West squad for that matter, will reach the field is by winning three or four games in the league tournament in Las Vegas.
