The first round of the NFL draft was held on Thurday. There was some very big steals and some not so good picks.
With the second pick of the draft, the Chicago Bears selected QB from North Carolina, Mitchell Trubinsky. I think this is the worst pick of the first round, and lots of Chicago fans agree with me too. The Bears, like the Browns, needed a lot of personnel. But they went for someone they thought could have built their franchise down the road, and to them, that was Mitchell Trubinsky. I don’t think there’s anything special about him. I think if the Bears were going after a QB, they should have gotten DeShaun Watson. He looked like the best QB available.
The 49ers by far got the biggest steal in drafting, they got Reuben Foster 31 overall. Foster was easily going to be a top 10 pick and 2 things happened to him. While at the NFL combine, Foster got in a fight with one of the nurses and was asked to go home. And he also tested positive for a diluted sample. If Foster straightens out his problems off the field, he will be a beast. He is many times compared to Luke Keuchly, the LB for the Carolina Panthers and arguably the best at what he does in the league right now.
One other really good steal is the Minnesota Vikings selecting Dalvin Cook with the 41st pick overall or 9th pick of the 2nd round. Cook was ranked the 2nd best RB coming into the draft but slipped to the 3rd one drafted. He had a really good Junior year breaking the all time Florida State record. I think he’s going to be really for the Vikings and he will be getting a lot of playing time since Adrian Peterson just signed a contract with the New Orleans Saints.
Overall I thought this was a pretty good draft, it was full of lots of good defensive players and lots of good Running backs. I hope everyone plays up to their potential.
Former NFL Tight End for the New England Patriots, Aaron Hernandez committed suicide early Wednesday morning.
Aaron was housed in a maximum security prison in Massachusetts. At 3 o’clock in the morning Aaron hung himself from a window using a bed sheet. He had barricaded the door closed and when the police got into his cell they immediately rushed him to a hospital where he was declared dead an hour later. He was also found with a the Bible verse, John 3:16 written on his forehead. Friends and family are shocked that Aaron did this. They said they has no idea of him ever trying to do this. In 2012 Aaron signed a 5 year, 40 million dollar extension. And then shortly after in 2013 after being accused of killing Odin Lloyd, the Patriots immediately releasing him. Hernandez was very good while he played at the University of Florida, but he went in the 4th round of the draft because of his behavior.
It’s very sad that Hernandez hung himself. He had a very bright future and could have done very good things. Hernandez had a 4 year old daughter when he died. It must be very hard for her without a father to grow up with. I think that something was wrong with Hernandez. I believe that he had major head damage from playing collegiate and professional football, that is what caused him to kill 3 people and hang himself.
Today is the last day of track. Yesterday and today is the district meet, yesterday was prelims and today is finals.
Yesterday I qualified for the 110 meter hurdles with a time of 16.4 and 300 meter hurdles with a time of 43.7, I also won the long jump yesterday with a jump of 17’10.
Today I’m running the 110 hurdles, 300 hurdles, 4×200 relay and the high jump. My best events are the 300 and 110 hurdles. I ran my PR (personal record) in both of those events the 2nd meet. Since then I’ve only gotten close to my best once. I’m hoping to do so today and break my PR in all my events because it’s our last meet of the year. I can’t wait for track next year because I’m going to be bigger, faster and stronger so hopefully I can run faster then.
I think we can win district this year because we have a lot of people that qualified for the finals. We have at least one person in each event, we just need everyone to perform to the best of their ability. I know that we have a couple of people that will automatically win their race and that will get us a lot of points, and we also have a chance of winning all three relays, which is worth 20 points, 2x the amount as open races.
I can’t wait until summer, it’s going to be the best!
Summer is so much fun. We get to miss 3 whole months of school, there is nothing better than that. While we have 3 moths off I hangout with my friends almost everyday. We do things like go to the mall, watch movies, play football and lots of other cool stuff. One thing I like about summer is that you can stay up all night and you won’t be super tired for school the next day. When I stay up all night with my friends I usually like to watch movies. Before we know we are going to stay up all night we buy a ton of candy and drinks so we can have a lot of sugar.
Another reason I’m really looking forward to summer is that I’m going to London. I’m going to London for the world track and field championships. I’m going to be there for a month. I can’t wait it’s going to be so much fun. My dad is going to be coaching a couple of athletes and I’ll see some of the best track and field athletes ever like Usaian Bolt. I really hope I get to meet Usain, I’ve never actually got to see him and it would be the coolest thing ever.
The last thing that I’m going to be doing during the summer is playing baseball and 7 on 7 which is baseball. I play baseball for the Boom. We have a really good team this year. We have 4 pitchers that can throw 70 MPH. A couple of people on my team go to our school but a lot of them go to other schools. For 7 on 7 everyone goes to our school or Hill Country. Last we made it to the state finals and lost but I wasn’t on the team. Hopefully we can make it to state again this year and win it.
I can’t wait for summer this year Im doing so many fun things.
It’s finally here! The track season has finally started. I’m so happy, track is my favorite sport.
We started track on Monday, so far we have run the 100, 200, and mile. We have our first meet on Tuesday, but we can only do running events. I’m gong to run the 300 hurdles, 110 hurdles, long jump, 100, and 200. We are only allowed to do 5 events and when we have an actual meet. I won’t do the 200 and do the 4×100 relay.
I think we will have a really good 4×100 team. Cole, Carson, Hayden and me are th 4 fastest boys in the grade so we should be put on the relay. If they do put us on the relay I think we could easily set the school record.
I also think we will win district as a grade. We have lots of good people in every event like: in the shot put, discuss, a good 4×100, sprinters, high jumpers and long jumpers. We have at least 2 people for every event.
I can’t wait for our first meet on Tuesday and to finally start running track with my friends.
It’s finally here, the Super Bowl is in 3 days! I really don’t want to see the Patriots do it again, but I already know they are going to win the Super Bowl for a 5th time.
The Tom Brady and Bill Belicheck duo is just too strong. I’m so tired of the Patriots always on top. I’m tired of the Patriots always winning their division. And I’m very tired of the Patriots always winning the Super Bowl. The Atlanta Falcons have only been to 1 Super Bowl. This is only going to be their 2nd! The Patriots have been 8 times, they are 4-4 and this is their 9th Super Bowl appearance! That’s the most out of any team in the NFL. Also, Tom Brady has won 4 Super Bowls, if he wins 1 more than he will break the record for most Super Bowl rings by any quarterback in NFL history.
The Falcons definitely have the offense to take down the Patriots. But, the Patriots defense will come up with a huge play to win the Super Bowl. Like in 2015, the Seahawks were about to score to win the game and Brandon Browner, a no name player came up with a huge interception to win the Patriots another Super Bowl.
All I really care about is that the Falcons win and that there’s a really good game. I don’t want to witness another 43-8 win like in 2014 when the Seahawks won their first Super Bowl.
Today is our last tournament of the year. I’m happy and sad at the same time because after the basketball season is track. Track is my favorite sport.
Our basketball tournament is in San Marcos. There is only Middle School teams playing, no select teams. Last time we played in this tournament we played 3 games. We won the first game by 53 points! The season game we won by 25 and the last game we won by only 13.
Even though basketball isn’t my favorite sport, I still love to play it. I’m very sad that it’s the last tournament of the year. But I can’t wait until next year.
Last Monday was terrible. It was the night of the college football national championship. It was a rematch of last year; Clemson vs Alabama.
The first half no one was really playing good. Alabama was winning and Clemson’s quarterback Deshaun Watson only had 79 pass yards.
It was looking like Alabama was going to win another national championship and then the Clemson offense started clicking together. Watson finished the game with 450 pass yards and 4 touchdowns. Clemson’s star linebacker, Ben Boulware, got the player of the game award and in my mind, he deserved it. Hopefully next year the national championship game will be that exciting to watch.
With the NFL draft just a couple of months away who will the Cleveland Browns select, Alabama’s DT Johnathan Allen, Texas A&M’s DE Myles Garrett or LSU’s RB Leonard Fournette?
The first prospect is Alabama’s Johnathan Allen, he’s 6’3″ and 300 pounds. This year he’s had 40 tackles, 8 tackles for a loss, 7 sacks, 2 passes deflected and one 76 yard pick-6. He is projected to be one of the best DT’s in the league along with Gerald McCoy, Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh.
The next prospect is A&M’s DE Myles Garrett he’s an all around beast. Garrett is 6’5″ 270 pounds, this year he’s only had 22 tackles, 9.5 tackles for loss, 4 sacks and 1 forced fumbled. His stats are so low because he’s been battling an ankle injury all year, this injury could prevent him from going #1. In 2014 (freshman year) he had 11.5 sacks, 53 tackles and 14 tackles for a loss. He broke the freshman NCAA record for most sacks previously held by Jadeveon Clowney. When Garrett fully heals he will be one of the best DE’s in the league.
Now the last prospect for #1 pick, Leonard Fournette. He’s 6’1″ 230 pounds, and only a junior. In 2015 Fournette would have easily been the #1 pick averaging 6.5 yards per carry, 1,953 rush yards, 22 touchdowns, 19 receptions for 253 yards and breaking LSU’s record for most rush yards in a game with 284. .This year he averaged 6.6 yards per carry, 843 rush yards, 8 touchdowns and 15 receptions for 146 yards. He like Myles Garrett has had an ankle injury that’s sidelined him for 5 games this year.
The Cleveland Browns have the #1 pick this year. They need a QB the most but the QB prospects aren’t good enough. They need so many positions to be filled so I think they will pick Myles Garrett. But we will just have to see in April.
Texas football results Texas football plays West Virginia tomorrow. I think that we will beat them, our defense just has to have a really good game. Our freshman quarterback, Shane Buechelle is playing really good. Our receivers are playing garbo but our running back, D’onta Foreman was 20 yards away last game from breaking the single game rush record. He had 335 rushing yards! I think this game he will break it and Texas will win.
