DeLaSalle Girls’ Basketball Coach Faith Johnson Patterson is among this year’s nominees for USA Today national girls’ coach of the year.  Johnson Patterson in 2012 became the first Black female basketball coach to be inducted into the Minnesota Girls’ Basketball Coaches Association Hall of Fame. “They [USA Today] go around to different states, looking for the top coaches,” Johnson Patterson said exclusively last week to the MSR. “People are selected from each region. My name was brought up several times. “It’s a two-to-three week period where you have to vote, and the top coach from each region is selected as a finalist.

Seattle’s best dismantles Broncos 43-8

 

 

 

 

 

 

NEW YORK-NEW JERSEY — The Seattle Seahawks are the champions of football after dominating the highest scoring team in NFL history, the Denver Broncos, 43-8 in Super Bowl XLVIII. The Seahawks, in the first-ever New York-New Jersey cold weather, open-air stadium Super Bowl at Met Life Stadium, put the heat on in the sixth-ever meeting in a Super Bowl of the league’s top offensive team vs. the No.1 defensive team, proving once again that defense wins championships. It only took 12 seconds in the first quarter to see that the record-setting Broncos were off their freewheeling game when center Manny Ramirez at the 14-yard line could not hear and snapped the football over quarterback Peyton Manning’s head for a rare safety. That, folks, was as close as the two-and-a-half-point favorite Broncos would get to Seattle. Continue Reading →

In a chilly Super Bowl XLVIII, it’s Seahawks vs. Broncos

HONOLULU — The first-ever non-conference Pro Bowl number 34 in Hawaii was won by Team Rice 22-21 in the lowest scoring Pro Bowl since 2006 when defense took center stage. The game was played in a steady rain in 70-degree temperatures. Because of the rain, there were eight turnovers, six interceptions and nine sacks. Players had a tough time getting a grip on the ball. The game was a turnover fest, but it was one of the most competitive Pro Bowls in recent years. Continue Reading →

NFL ‘final four’: Not much has changed

 

We have gone from the New Orleans bounty gate to general managers, head coaches, coordinators, player suspensions, and a record number of players fined for hits with helmets leading to tragedies like players losing their lives. One Kansas City Chiefs player murdered the mother of his child, then took his own life. The very next weekend, a Dallas Cowboys player driving his car while drunk killed his passenger, teammate Jerry Brown, who was sober. Once the NFL regular season ended December 30 and the 12 qualifiers for the Super Bowl XL VII tournament were set, eight NFL head coaches were fired: Arizona, Buffalo, Cleveland, Chicago, Jacksonville, Philadelphia, San Diego and Kansas City. Also, five general managers were sent packing. Continue Reading →
