Kemoko Turay recalls vividly the first time he approached his father about playing high school football.
Born and raised in West Africa, Vakaba Turay didn’t say much. Didn’t have to. His words still spoke volumes.
He didn’t (understand), Kemoko, now a rookie defensive end for the Indianapolis Colts, said. He was like, ‘What the? Weren’t you just playing basketball yesterday?’ My coach had to go to his shop.
With injured stars Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving on the bench in street clothes, the Sam Martin Jersey Celtics continued their stunning run this season with what may have been the most surprising turn of events yet. A year after dropping the first two games at home against Cleveland in a five-game East final, the Celtics pounced on James, and the favored Cavaliers were never really in it.
The Celtics took the floor to a hype video that began with the broadcast of Hayward’s injury in the first quarter of the first game, at Cleveland. A variety of commentators predicted the team’s demise, including Hall of Famer Charles Barkley saying: Their season’s over.

Brady is indeed at 968 career rushing yards, at an average of 1.7 per carry. He needs 32 rushing yards to hit the 1,000 mark for his career, but getting there is no guarantee. He has failed to reach 32 rushing yards in a season in two of the last five years, including last year.
Vander Esch makes the defense immediately better and should play a major role this season.
Fans don’t always get too jazzed about drafting a center, but Detroit Lions fans should be excited about former Arkansas center Frank Ragnow. See, the Lions haven’t had a running back rush for 100 yards in a game since 2013. Ragnow can help make that happen.
He is a mauler at the interior of the offensive line and should be able to open some big holes for LeGarrette Blount and rookie second-round pick Kerryon Johnson.
He’s a tough guy and a leader in that locker room. He’s got the personality that you want your center to have, and he’s got good strength, one NFC scout said of Ragnow, per Zierlein. I see him as an early starter in the league.
