Briana’s blueprint – Boldon pleased with star sprinter’s progress

first_imgAs a former world junior champion himself during his athletic career, Ato Boldon is aware of the intricacies that come with the life of a track athlete and is using that experience as he continues to coach Jamaica’s newest sprint sensation, Briana Williams.Following Williams’ recent triumph at the 2019 Pan American U-20 Athletics Championships, where she won the women’s 100m and was a member of the 4x100m team that won silver, Boldon commented on his aathlete’s performances so far this season.“This season has gone almost exactly as we planned, the only exception being that we were thinking about doing both events at the World Championship,” Boldon said. “Our focus has kind of changed more towards the 100m. Let’s do whatever we can in the 100m and get ready for the relays because those are the two most important things that Briana has scheduled.”Boldon explained that there were varying factors that led to this shift in priority. One such factor was her health at the Nationals Trials, which caused her to withdraw from the half-lap event, citing a medical exemption after she was reported to be running a fever.The other factor, Boldon said, was that she was consistently doubling the 100m and 200m at many events this season.“She was scheduled to double at quite a few places even though not all of them have worked out. She doubled at Carifta trials and at Carifta,” Boldon said. “She was actually scheduled to double at NACAC, but she was having some issues with the track so I pulled her from the 200m at that meet. She’s done enough doubles this year.”After her win at the Pan Ams Juniors, there were issues raised about her fitness as Williams did not have the comfortable finish for which she has become known. Boldon confirmed that Williams was indeed having a few problems concerning her ankle but laid to bed the rumours of it being a serious injury.“When it gets cold, sometimes her ankle can bother her. I don’t know why. In fact, this has never happened before at a meet, and I’ve been coaching her for five years now,” the coach sought to explain. “This is very much a one-time thing, which was why she was able to run the relay the day after.”As she calls a close to her career as a junior, Boldon revealed that Williams has many options available to her regarding her senior career, which are all being carefully handled and evaluated.“Briana has a lot of options. I think she has more options than anyone at seventeen years old has had in the sport. So those are all being very carefully weighed right now, and in short order, everyone will know what Briana will be doing and not doing in the coming months and years,” said Boldon. – Gregory Brycelast_img read more

Waking a sleeping rivalry: The 2014 Advocare V100 Texas Bowl

first_imgLITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – Meeting for the first time since a 52-10 Longhorns victory over the Razorbacks in 2008, the Texas Bowl matchup between the old Southwest conference foes revives what was once the best rivalry in college football.While the University of Texas Longhorns have dominated the overall series to the tune of a 56-21 win-loss record over the Hogs, there have been several upsets, shoot-outs, and heartbreakers over the last 120 years.Starting in 1894, Texas won the first 14 games against the Razorbacks, outscoring them 379-27. In fact, Arkansas was shut out in all but three of those games.Arkansas turned things around in the 1930s, winning five contests, only to lose every game against Texas in the 1940s. Razorbacks talk Texas Bowl Then the 1960s happened.The 60s saw the rise of both programs to the top of college football, setting the stage for several key meetings between the two squads. The Arkansas Razorbacks won their only national championship in 1964, defeating top-ranked Texas 14-13 in route to an undefeated season. The apex of the golden decade for this rivalry culminated in the 1969 “Game of the Century” between #1 Texas and #2 Arkansas.Arkansas lost the game in heart-breaking fashion, 15-14, which lead to a national championship season for Texas.Fast forward to today.Both teams head to the Texas Bowl in Houston looking not only to revitalize their programs, as both programs are rebounding from recent poor seasons, but also to put another mark on a historic rivalry that ended for the most part when Arkansas left for the SEC in 1992.Take a look back at a few of the most memorable showdowns in the history of the historic rivalry.1969: The Game of the Century (Texas 15, Arkansas 14)Written by Paul HughesPresident Richard Nixon in attendance of "The Game of the Century." Texas beat Arkansas 15-14.President Richard Nixon in attendance of “The Game of the Century.” Texas beat Arkansas 15-14.The 1960s saw the rise of both of these programs, winning or sharing the SWC championship in eight of ten years leading to the famous matchup.Both teams had already won a national championship in the decade, with the Longhorns winning the title in 1963 and the Hogs winning a share of the national title the next season.The ’69 season marked the 100th season of college football, and this game lived up to the “Game of the Century” moniker.In fact, the game had quite the buildup. The game was moved from the normal October date to December to add to the importance of the game. TV executives persuaded Arkansas coach Frank Broyles to move the game back with the promise that President Richard Nixon would attend the game and that ABC would air Arkansas’s season opener the next year against Stanford on national television.Little Rock was almost the site for the game, because executives wanted a night game, but the Razorbacks’ stadium in Fayetteville did not have lights. However, officials didn’t believe War Memorial Stadium’s lights were sufficient for the marquee contest, so the game time was set for noon in Fayetteville.When the game started, it was the vaunted Texas wishbone attack, just making its way into college football, versus the stifling Razorbacks defense. Texas entered the game averaging 44 points per game on offense while the Arkansas defense limited their opponents to a paltry 6.8 points per game. Not to be overshadowed, the Texas defense and Arkansas offense also ranked in the top ten in the country. It was the heavyweight of all heavyweight matchups. Happy Festivus: Razorbacks Football In the end, defense ended up ruling the game, as the score stood at 14-8 with Arkansas clinging to the lead with less than five minutes remaining.However, Texas in the end had just enough guile to win the game, scoring all 15 of their points in the fourth quarter and intercepting an Arkansas pass with under a minute left in the game.The game actually led to some controversy, as Richard Nixon offered a plaque to the victors from Austin and declared them national champions, even though Big Ten juggernaut Penn State also finished undefeated after an Orange Bowl win over Big 8 champion Missouri Tigers.Arkansas ultimately lost the Sugar Bowl against the Archie Manning-led Ole Miss Rebels. The game also marked an important event in social history as it is recognized as the final major American sporting event between two all-white teams.1969: The Game of the Century (Texas 15, Arkansas 14)Written by Paul Hughes Arkansas defeated Texas, 27-6.The Cotton Bowl Classic between the Razorbacks and Longhorns marked the first meeting between the two teams since Arkansas left the now-defunct Southwest Conference for the SEC in 1991.Texas came into the game as the heavy favorites, going 9-3 on the season and finishing the season as the Big 12 South champions.Arkansas on the other hand, had a good-not-great regular season with a 7-4 final record. The Hogs accepted an at-large bid to face the Longhorns in the Cotton Bowl Classic in Dallas, Texas.The first half of the game was marked by defense, as the two teams went into the half locked in a 3-3 tie. However, Arkansas turned things up in the second half.The key moment in the game came early in the third quarter, as the Clint Stoerner-led Hogs were pinned deep in their own territory and facing a daunting third-and-12. Stoerner launched a 47 yard pass to star wideout Anthony Lucas to spark the Razorbacks’ 97 yard touchdown drive to go up 10-3.An injury to starting quarterback Major Applewhite proved to be a devastating blow, as the Longhorns only managed 3 points in the second half of the embarrassing loss for Texas.Arkansas polished the huge victory with 17 points in the fourth quarter and were ecstatic when the final second came off the clock with the score showing a score of 27-6. Razorbacks visit Arkansas Children’s hospital during Little Rock trip While the offense had big plays from Clint Stoerner, Anthony Lucas, and Cedric Cobbs, the true star of the game was the Razorbacks defense. The unit sacked Texas quarterbacks eight times and limited the Longhorns run game to minus-27 yards rushing.It marked the most lopsided victory over their rivals from the Lone Star State since their 42-11 drubbing of the top-ranked Longhorns in 1981.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration Time 0:00Loaded: 0%0:00Progress: 0%0:00 Progress: 0%Stream TypeLIVERemaining Time -0:00 Playback Rate1ChaptersChaptersdescriptions off, selectedDescriptionssubtitles off, selectedSubtitlescaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedCaptionsAudio TrackFullscreenThis is a modal window.

It was September 13, 2003, and the heavily-favored Texas Longhorns were ranked fourth in the country.The Razorbacks, however, jumped out to a 14-7 lead after the first quarter and a 21-14 lead at halftime on the way to a 38-28 win. Matt Jones ripped off multiple long runs, including a 60-yard run in the fourth quarter to seal the game. Razorback fans rush for Texas Bowl tickets Perhaps one of the funniest and oft-forgotten memories of the game was that Sony was in Austin filming a Tommy Lee Jones movie, Man of the House. The forgettable film has a 5.4 rating on IMDb and did poorly in theaters, but the plot includes Jones, a Texas Ranger as always, defending the University of Texas cheerleaders. In the plot, the cheerleaders were witnesses to a crime and were in danger after a threat.A scene was filmed at halftime in which the Razorback mascot brandishes a water gun only to be tackled to the ground by Jones, seeing it as a real threat. Perhaps the funniest part is a glance at the scoreboard in the scene reads TEXAS 14, ARKANSAS 7. The director had Arkansas’ 21 changed to 7 to make it appear as though Texas was winning in the film. It appeared that the script had assumed Texas would be winning. The script assumed wrong.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration Time 0:00Loaded: 0%0:00Progress: 0%0:00 Progress: 0%Stream TypeLIVERemaining Time -0:00 Playback Rate1ChaptersChaptersdescriptions off, selectedDescriptionssubtitles off, selectedSubtitlescaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedCaptionsAudio TrackFullscreenThis is a modal window.

The Razorbacks and Longhorns will revive a mostly-dormant rivalry one more time, with the Advocare V100 Texas Bowl set to take place on Monday, Dec. 29 at 8 p.m. The game will air on ESPN.So, what is at stake in this game?Both teams enter the contest after up-and-down seasons.Arkansas has a decided edge in statistical rankings this season.Arkansas has a decided edge in statistical rankings this season.The Longhorns (6-6, 5-4 Big 12), are in rebuilding mode under new coach Charlie Strong after firing Mack Brown. Brown presided over one of the most successful stretches of Texas football history, winning the BCS title in a memorable comeback over USC in the 2006 Rose Bowl.Charlie Strong was hired to Texas to revitalize a team that had faded into mediocrity; something the state of Texas will never tolerate.The 2014 Longhorns suffered several devastating losses to BYU (41-7), UCLA (20-17), Baylor (28-7), Oklahoma (31-26), Kansas State (23-0), and TCU (48-10). All of their wins came against unranked teams with the exception of their 33-16 win over #23 West Virginia. Needless to say, Charlie Strong has his work cut out for him in one of the most highly-scrutinized coaching positions in college football. However, Strong has a track record of success and might just be the perfect man to get the program back to glory.As for the 2014 Razorbacks (6-6, 2-6 SEC) the overall record wasn’t impressive, but it was a tale of two seasons for the Hogs. After enduring a terrible season in Brett Bielema’s first as head coach in which they did not win an SEC game, the Razorbacks started poorly with a 45-21 loss to Auburn. Even that game was a tale of two halves, as the Razorbacks played well in the first half before succumbing to Nick Marshall’s return to starting quarterback after being suspended for the first half. Texas Bowl preview After the opening loss, the Hogs rattled off three straight convincing wins over nonconference opponents before facing Texas A&M in Arlington, Texas in what turned out to be an instant classic. Arkansas controlled most of the game, leading 28-14 going into the fourth quarter.However, a costly holding call against the Hogs on a 55-yard run by Jonathan Williams proved to be a turning point in the Aggies’ overtime win. The Arkansas error galvanized Texas A&M as they scored 21 points in the second half of the game. The Aggies proceeded to score on the first play of overtime and stopped Arkansas on four consecutive plays to break the hearts of the young Hogs.Arkansas then lost a nail-biter to #7 Alabama 14-13 followed by an embarrassing 45-32 loss to the Georgia Bulldogs in Little Rock.It was after that loss to Georgia that things really changed for the Razorbacks.Arkansas played #1 Mississippi State down to the wire in a defensive battle. The Bulldogs managed to hold on, 17-10.Then, unranked Arkansas Razorbacks and their defensive unit turned in back-to-back shutout performances against ranked SEC foes #17 LSU (17-0) and #8 Ole Miss (30-0), something that hadn’t been done in the history of college football.Arkansas finished the season against #17 Missouri, but starting quarterback Brandon Allen suffered an injury in the game and the Arkansas offense could not spell the dominant defensive unit. Mizzou outlasted the Hogs and claimed a 21-14 victory in the inaugural Battle Line Rivalry game.Monday’s bowl game could go a long way for both teams towards building confidence for 2015. Arkansas certainly appears to be a team on the rise, while the Texas Longhorns are still trying to find their identity under coach Strong.So, cancel your plans for Monday evening. You will not want to miss this game.last_img read more
