Fisher, Dixon share role in replacing suspended Norton

first_imgWith kicker Ryan Norton suspended for Syracuse’s game against Wake Forest on Saturday, punters Riley Dixon and Jonathan Fisher will share a role in the kicking game.“Riley will do the kickoffs and then both of them will have opportunities in the field goal category,” Shafer said. “They’ve both done a good job this week with that.”Norton was arrested on Friday for resisting arrest and underage possession of alcohol. He was suspended by the Orange “due to a violation of team rules,” Shafer said in a statement Wednesday.Norton began the season as Syracuse’s kickoff specialist and took over full-time kicking duties when Ross Krautman suffered a season-ending, hip-related injury against Northwestern. Norton has made 4-of-6 field goals this year with a long of just 34 yards.“Ryan will be out this week,” Shafer said during the press conference. “He’ll be back next week.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn Norton’s absence, Fisher will make his return to the Orange’s kicking game. He began the season as SU’s starting punter, but Dixon replaced him after Syracuse’s loss to the Wildcats. Dixon is listed as both a kicker and punter on the Orange’s roster.Shafer admitted Thursday that he is “concerned,” but he also expressed confidence in, and excitement about, the two specialists who will be filling the role.Said Shafer: “(It’s) also a good opportunity for the other two kids to get a chance to kick some field goals, extra points — hopefully a lot of them.” Comments Published on October 31, 2013 at 11:21 am Contact David: [email protected] | @DBWilson2 Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Appiah is better than Dujkovic and Rajevac – Randy Abbey

first_imgGhana FA Executive Committee Member Randy Abbey insists Akwasi Appiah is better than Milovan Rajevac and Ratomir Dujkovic who chalked massive success with the Black Stars during their reign.Appiah will be leading Ghana to its third successive World Cup finals haven presided over aflambouyant qualification series.Some soccer fans however harbour some doubt over whether the ex Black Stars skipper is the best man to take the team to next year’s finals in Brazil – with sceptics quick to point out to the massive achievements of Ratomir Duijkovic and Milovan Rajevac.Duijkovic led Ghana to its first World Cup qualification – where the Black Stars emerged as the only African side to make it out of the group stage in Germany 2006.‘Doya’s’ Serbian compatriot Milovan Rajevac then took the team to even greater heights four years later to a quarter final finish in South Africa.Many are now casting doubts over Akwasi Appiah’s ability to equal or even surpass the featof these expatriate coaches with Ghana drawn in a tough group alongside Germany, Portugal and USA. Abbey who worked closely with Appiah at the U23 level to deliver gold for Ghana at the 2011 All Africa Games is bemused by the subtle rising pessimism over Appiah’s ability at the biggest stage despite presiding over a flambouyant qualification campaign.“We know how we are able to help coaches to succeed and we’ve being doing same for Akwasi Appiah,” Abbey said on GTV’s Stage Africa show.“And I can sit here and say that at least over the last 10 years, of all the coaches that we’ve brought in to handle the Black Stars, none of them have performed better than Akwasi Appiah.“We can get into the statistics, we can look at the issues. But there is still that level of doubt.“I don’t know whether it is a function of colonialism or ne-colonialism or inferiority complex, I don’t know. I honestly don’t know.”last_img read more
