Football Feature: Daniel Scott a Game Changer; St. Francis Captain is ‘Phenomenal Athlete’

first_img Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box. Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy St. Francis’ Daniel Scott may be the area’s most complete football player.The Golden Knights senior rarely comes off the field.It’s not just at receiver on offense or in the defensive backfield that Scott makes his presence felt.Last Friday, on special teams, he scooped up a punt and took it in for a touchdown in the Golden Knights’ 38-28 victory over La Salle in the Angelus League opener for both schools.St. Francis (6-0) continues league play this Saturday when it hosts Salesian (5-1) at 7 p.m.Scott has 21 catches for over 400 yards and a team-best six receiving touchdowns.He also leads St. Francis with four interceptions.In the last year and a half, Scott has caught over 55 passes for 980 yards and 10 touchdowns.What makes Scott the Golden Knights’ go-to guy?“As a receiver, he has a knack for getting open and finding the open space,” longtime St. Francis coach Jim Bonds said. “He has exceptional hands and does a great job studying film and knowing where the open space will be in opposing defenses. As a defensive back, he has great vision. He has quarterback eyes as a safety and knows where the ball is going before it is thrown.”Not only is the 6-foot-2, 195-pounder a pure athlete, Scott has an instinct that can’t be taught.His selflessness is what stands out to many.We’ve asked him on multiple occasions after victories this year in which Scott played a starring role about his own performance, and he immediately changes the conversation to “we.”Maxx Jakeway, Will Mudie and Matt Nixon make up the four captains with Scott, and given the label “Golden Knight,” a title that is the highest honor in Jim Bonds’ program..“When I was younger, I really looked up to the captains as people who did things the right way, and now it’s an incredible honor to be one of the four captains,” Scott said.His quarterback couldn’t be more proud to go to battle every Friday with Scott.“Daniel is a great leader on and off the field,” quarterback Michael Bonds said. “He is also a great friend and someone who makes sure everyone is doing their job. We have a lot of great players, but when a big play needs to be made, we know we can count on Daniel to make it.”And it’s not just his on-the-field prowess that is impressive.Scott has a 3.4 grade-point average and is someone coach Bonds called “very intelligent.”His family has been a source of inspiration.Scott’s brother Chris is his “right-hand man.”His dad, Duane, and he ‘live for football,’ and Scott says his father is his biggest fan, but also isn’t afraid to let Daniel know when his play is less than stellar.But Scott heaps his biggest praise for his mother, Janet.“She is someone who always supports me, is always proud of me, and yet she can tell me the truth when I need to hear it. I can’t begin to express how much her love has meant to me.”As mentioned, Scott takes issue with talking about his share of the credit for the perfect season thus far, and while he’s done more than his part, the Golden Knights are loaded with impact players.Quarterback Michael Bonds has over 1,000 yards passing and 12 TDs.The running back duo of Jace Harrick and Elijah Washington have a combined 9 touchdowns, and Will Mudie, Greg Dulcich and Gabriel Mathews have been solid all year as part of the Golden Knights’ receiving core.The bend-but-don’t-break defense has also played an enormous role in six straight wins, and is led by Maxx Jakeway, Gabriel Grbavac and Bobby Gazmarian, to name a few.His coach and many others believe Scott has Division 1 college talent and they all hope he gets his chance.Scott is a guy that any coach or school would be proud to call their own.When asked if he could have a conversation with any person living or dead, we thought maybe he’d name a star athlete or celebrity.But Scott didn’t hesitate in mentioning his late grandfather John Cardoza, his mother’s dad.“I really want to tell him how well we’re doing, because I know how happy and proud he’d be,” Scott said. “I’d like the chance to tell him one more time that I love him.”It’s not just his teammates and coaches on campus at St. Francis that admire Scott.Despite being crosstown rivals in league, La Salle coach Russell Gordon didn’t hesitate to praise who he respectfully calls “Number 3.”“Daniel is a phenomenal athlete and is someone opponents need to try and stop or at least contain to try and beat St. Francis,” Gordon said. “We knew he was a game changer and he didn’t do anything last Friday to change our minds.”When football is over, Scott will go straight to the Golden Knights basketball team and run the offense as the St. Francis point guard.He’s got plenty of time left, though, and Scott wants to first win an Angelus League title, and hopes to make a deep run in the CIF-SS Division 3 playoffs.Currently, St. Francis is ranked No. 3 in the CIF polls and No. 41 in the entire state of California by MaxPreps.How does Scott want to be remembered when his time is done on the football field by his younger teammates?“I hope they think of me as someone who worked hard, was always there for my teammates and was willing to do anything I could to help our team win games.”Getting To Know Daniel Scott:Favorite Football Player: Wes WelkerFavorite Sports Movie: Any Given SundayFavorite Movie: Fast and the FuriousFavorite Musical Artist: FutureFavorite Childhood Football Team: UCLAFavorite TV Show: ESPN Sports CenterQuotable: “Daniel is not only a Golden Knight (one of our four captains), he is an exceptional leader on offense, defense and special teams!

Parents suffering iGuilt over smartphones

first_imgNZ Herald 26 May 2012They call it iGuilt. It’s become an increasingly common sight at Saturday morning sport as parents tap away at their phones, missing little Jimmy’s goal. Some parents don’t even realise what they’re doing while others readily admit they devote more attention to their iPhone than to their child. The modern world is filled with technological distractions, from smartphones to laptops to iPads, which are increasingly hard to switch off. Netsafe director and father of a 4 and 8-year-old, Martin Cocker admitted smartphones sometimes interfered with his parenting. His job means he needs to always be contactable by media and colleagues and so he always has his phone on and with him.How to miss a childhood* Keep your phone turned on at all times of the day. Allow the rings, beeps, and buzzes to interrupt your child mid sentence; always let the caller take priority.* Take your children to the zoo and spend so much time on your phone that your child looks longingly at the mother who is engaged with her children and wishes she was with her instead.* Go to your child’s sporting event and look up periodically from your phone thinking she won’t notice that you are not fully focused on her game.* Check your phone first thing in the morning … even before you kiss, hug, or greet the people in your family.* Read email and text messages at red lights. Then tell yourself that when your kids are old enough to drive they won’t remember you did this all the time. read more

Fears linger at Algeria gas plant year after bloody siege

first_imgALGIERS- Algeria has ramped up security along the borders and at energy facilities countrywide, but concerns linger over safety at the In Amenas gas plant one year after dozens died in a bloody hostage attack.Heavily armed Islamists stormed the isolated Tiguentourine complex, which lies deep in the Sahara desert, on January 16, 2013, with 38 hostages killed in a four-day siege and army rescue operation that followed.All but one of those who died were foreigners. The North African country is heavily dependent on its energy sector, with hydrocarbons accounting for more than 97 percent of export earnings.But despite the security reinforcements, Al-Qaeda-linked militants remain a serious threat throughout the Sahara region, adding to the concerns of foreign firms which Algeria relies on to maintain production at its ageing oil and gas fields.A top US general warned last week that Mokhtar Belmokhtar, the veteran jihadist who masterminded the hostage raid, had the capability to stage “another attack like In Amenas”.Belmokhtar’s breakaway Al-Qaeda group “Signatories in Blood” claimed the attack, saying it was in retaliation for France’s military intervention against Islamist militants in Mali.Norwegian firm Statoil, which jointly operates the plant along with Britain’s BP and Algeria’s Sonatrach, has returned to the country but not the site, where one of three production trains damaged in the attack is still out of action.Statoil lost five employees, and only one of the 12 survivors is prepared to go back to In Amenas.“It’s a shame because I would have preferred it if there were others. But that’s how it is. It’s important that the families of my colleagues have their say,” Kolbjoern Kirkeboe, 52, told AFP.BP and Japanese engineering firm JGC, which alone lost 10 employees, are still waiting to return to In Amenas, where an inspection is planned in the coming days to assess the site’s security, and the possible go-ahead.To better protect expatriates working at the complex, which lies 1,300 kilometres (800 miles) southeast of Algiers, a landing strip is being built to provide a safer passage to and from the site.Statoil has barred its employee from spending the night there until the new security measures are in place.  Kirkeboe was in the bus ferrying workers from the site that came under attack at the start of the raid.Algeria refuses to allow foreign companies to organise their own security arrangements at the sites where they operate.That task is entrusted to the Algerian military, which was criticised at the time for its handling of what was one of the worst hostage bloodbaths in years.Sonatrach’s chairman Abdelhamid Zerguine said in October that the security of all its production sites, including those operated with foreign partners, was “guaranteed by the country’s security authorities”.Statoil experts had concluded in a report published the previous month that security at In Amenas had relied too heavily on the Algerian army.“Neither Statoil nor the joint venture could have prevented the attack, but there is reason to question the extent of their reliance on Algerian military protection,” the report said.The energy-rich North African country has dramatically increased security at its oil and gas installations since the attack, and along the vast porous borders its shares with Libya and Mali.Military sources, cited by independent Algerian daily El-Watan, indicated recently that 20,000 troops had been deployed along the country’s eastern and southern frontiers, with another 1,500 combing the region day and night,assisted by continuous air cover.“Military command has sent the majority of its aircraft to Ouargla and Tamanrasset (in southern Algeria) as the main bases for intervention,” said one of the sources.Helicopters and Seeker II drones equipped with hi-tech reconnaissance equipment are able to carry out surveillance missions and precision air strikes.There are indications that Algeria’s heightened security arrangements are paying off, with several Islamist convoys having been destroyed between Tamanrasset in the far south and Illizi in the southeast, according to the military source.In October, the army announced that it had seized a large weapons cache near the Libyan border, 200 kilometres (125 miles) from In Amenas.last_img read more

Firstround recap Ohio State ties school record with five firstround draftees in

Former OSU running back Ezekiel Elliott poses after scoring a touchdown in the 2016 Fiesta Bowl. Elliott was one of five Buckeyes selected in the first round on Thursday. Credit: Samantha Hollingshead | Photo EditorWay back when the 2014 Buckeyes won the College Football Playoff national championship, everyone around the team knew the type of talent returning in 2015.As the season played out, it became apparent to the Ohio State faithful that there would be an extensive list of players leaving the program following the final whistle.After months of speculation and hype surrounding the former OSU football players who entered their names in the NFL draft pool, the outgoing Buckeyes lived up to the expectations on Thursday night.With five players selected in the first round, OSU fell just shy of the single-school record of six, held by the University of Miami in 2004. OSU did tie its own school record of first-round picks set in 2006.The first day of the draft was headlined for the Buckeyes by defensive end Joey Bosa and running back Ezekiel Elliott, taken by the San Diego Chargers and the Dallas Cowboys at No. 3 and No. 4 overall, respectively.Eli Apple, Taylor Decker, and Darron Lee also heard their names called by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Thursday night inside the Auditorium Theater in Chicago.After Bosa and Elliott were quickly taken off the board, most people thought a dozen or so picks would pass by before the next Buckeye was taken. But coming as arguably the biggest surprise pick of the first round, the New York Giants reached a bit to take the cornerback Apple with the 10th pick.Multiple media sources have stated that this is the first time in NFL history that a team has had three selections inside the first 10 picks. However, this has been accomplished 12 times before, with Oklahoma the last team to do so in 2010.It is the first time in program history that three players from the Scarlet and Gray were selected in the first 10 picks of the NFL draft. When Decker and Lee were selected at No. 16 and No. 20, respectively, OSU became just the second school in the history of the draft to have five picks in the top 20. With 11 picks remaining in the first round, many wondered if safety Vonn Bell or wide receiver Michael Thomas would come off the board to tie the mark set by the Hurricanes.In the end, the talented class from the Scarlet and Gray still boasted an impressive first-round showing in Chicago, drawing attention from all over the NFL. With the first round concluded, nine former OSU players remain on most draft boards entering the final two days of the draft. Bell and Thomas are likely to be two of the first Buckeyes selected, along with the possibility of wide receiver Braxton Miller.A pair of offensive players, quarterback Cardale Jones and tight end Nick Vannett, add to the list of potential second and third day picks. Vannett has gained the most attention from NFL teams prior to the draft, but many analysts are predicting Jones to be a late selection.Linebacker Joshua Perry is predicted to go in the middle rounds, while defensive tackle Adolphus Washington is expected to accompany Perry somewhere around the halfway point of the draft. The draft is set to continue on Friday with the second and third rounds, and Saturday with Rounds 4 through 7. By the end of the weekend, OSU will begin to threaten its own NFL draft record of 14 total picks from one school set in 2004. read more
