Pre-Heisman Ceremony Press Conference

New York City – The three finalists made their way to the stage for the press conference prior to the announcement of the winner. Henry, McCaffrey and Watson were all very well spoken, and showed lots of admiration for their fellow competitors. The three agreed across the board that if they had a vote in the process that those would be cast towards their two other peers. God was thanked by all, as well as family for their success. All very grateful to be attending the event. There seemed to be tension in the room, as all three seemed to be nervous for what was to come. When asked about how they were able to manage class and football Derrick Henry said “We have a great staff at the University of Alabama to help us with 0ur classes. Your time management is on you and you need to get your work done.” McCaffrey had a similar answer “Practice and class interfere a lot, so you can’t have a huge workload during the season.

College football is a religion in the south and every Saturday each school that plays in the Southeastern Conference get to host a football spectacle.

Where Did It Go Wrong for the Nationals?

Written By Ben Boynton Before this current MLB season began, many fans expected the Washington Nationals to dominate the National League and reach the World Series, potentially even winning the whole thing.  Vegas odds makers placed the team’s odds at around 7/1.  The team, fresh off a playoff appearance and sporting a loaded roster, looked poised to contend for a championship. Today, they no longer look like a team ready to win it all.  In fact, they barely resemble a team built for postseason baseball.  The team, with a 65-63 record, is now is listed at having 25/1 odds...

Race for the AL Wildcard

Written by P.J Glasser   When baseball implemented the 2nd wild card slot for the American and National League who knew it would make the baseball season so much better.
