San Francisco 49ers star Charvarius Ward already knows what it feels like to reach this stage.

The veteran cornerback already played in a Super Bowl when he was with the Kansas City Chiefs.

As a matter of fact, this will be the third time in his career he plays in one of those games, as he’s already won and lost a Super Bowl before.

Notably, Ward was on the winning squad when the Chiefs beat his current team four years ago.

However, when asked about his previous experience, he threw a little shade at his former organization, claiming that it’s much better to reach this stage with the Niners than it was with the Chiefs (via 95.7 The Game).

“It’s better over here.  [In] every way,” Ward said.

Truth be told, Ward has fared better since taking his talents to the Bay area as a free agent.

He signed a three-year deal in 2022, and he made an immediate impact.

He’s coming off logging 72 total tackles and a career-best five interceptions this season, including his first career touchdown with on a pick-six.

He played under Andy Reid for four years after signing with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent out of Middle Tennessee State.

Needless to say, he’s pretty familiar with Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs’ offense, and he’ll look to show his former team what they missed when they let him walk away.

This will be one of the biggest storylines of the ultimate game, and it’ll be interesting to see who gets the last laugh this time.

آس 90 : Report: Raiders hiring Kliff Kingsbury as offensive coordinator

Report: Raiders hiring Kliff Kingsbury as offensive coordinator

HENDERSON, Nev. — The Las Vegas Raiders are hiring former Arizona Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury to be their offensive coordinator, a person informed of the decision told The Associated Press on Thursday night.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal hasn’t been finalized.

This is the first major hire for new Raiders coach Antonio Pierce, who had the interim tag removed Jan. 19. Kingsbury will be in charge of trying to turn around a Las Vegas offense that was 27th this season yards per game (289.5) and 23rd in scoring (19.5-point average).

The Raiders also will have a decision to make at quarterback. Rookie Aidan O’Connell went 5-4 after being handed the job, but questions remain whether he has the ability to lead the Raiders into and deep in the playoffs.

“There hasn’t been a lot of years I’ve been the unquestioned starter going in, so I’m used to competing,” O’Connell said last week.

The Raiders pick 13th in this year’s quarterback-deep draft, but the top names likely will be gone by the time Las Vegas’ spot comes up.

Kingsbury, 44, spent this past season at USC as an offensive analyst working with quarterback Caleb Williams, who many project will be drafted first overall. Before that, Kingsbury went 28-37-1 over four seasons as the Cardinals’ coach.

Arizona went 11-6 in 2021 and made the playoffs, but the Cardinals suffered several major injuries the following season and finished 4-13, resulting in Kingsbury’s dismissal. The firing came just 10 months after the Cardinals signed him to a contract extension.

In addition to Kingsbury, the Raiders interviewed former Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Luke Getsy, Cincinnati Bengals quarterbacks coach Dan Pitcher, Pittsburgh Steelers QB coach Mike Sullivan and ex-Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt.

آس 90 : The Career and Legacy of Baron “B.B.” Flenory

The Career and Legacy of Baron "B.B." Flenory


سایت ace90

Before I dive into the amazing career and legacy of B.B. Flenory, I want to share the great conversation I had with him on my podcast, Total Sports Recall. He is one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet, and it was a pleasure to have him on the show.

The city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, used to have a professional basketball team from 1967 to 1972 that went by two names. They were the Pipers and then renamed to the Condors. They played in the old American Basketball Association (ABA) which eventually folded. There hasn’t been a pro team since. So, when it comes to basketball in the Steel City, talk is typically about the University of Pittsburgh Panthers or Duquesne University and the Dukes.

There is also plenty of great high school basketball so in Pittsburgh if you are talking about great players that came from the city, one might first mention Norm Nixon who played at Duquesne, then had a fine career with the Los Angeles Lakers. Billy Knight might come to mind as he starred at Pitt and then played in the NBA. But the most common, popular name, and perhaps the best basketball player ever in the city of Pittsburgh would be Baron “B.B.” Flenory.

B.B. Flenory began his basketball stardom in Pittsburgh by playing for Ridge Avenue Junior High School where he once scored 81 points in one game. That performance landed him in Sports Illustrated Magazine as part of the “Faces in the Crowd” column. In that season at Ridge Avenue Junior High, B.B. Flenory averaged 50.2 points per game.

While he was still in junior high, Flenory was offered a scholarship to play ball and attend Robert Louis Stevenson Prep School in Pebble Beach, California. But wanting to stay close to home so his parents could watch him play, Flenory stayed in school in Pittsburgh and attended Valley High School where he got his education and his time on the court.

At Valley, Flenory set the school’s single game scoring record of 52 points and four times scored over 40. For his years there, he scored 1,896 points. He accomplished that in just three seasons since freshman were not permitted to play on the varsity team. At Valley High School, B.B. Flenory was an A-K scoring champion and in multiple instances was named to the All-Section team as well as being named Section Most Valuable Player in not just his junior season but for his senior year as well.

Flenory was named to the Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic League (WPIAL) first team all-state by the UPI and AP for both his junior and senior seasons. In his senior season, he was named the M.V.P. for the state of Pennsylvania. The very famous Parade All-American team placed Flenory on that team in his senior season making B.B. Flenory just one of 13 basketball players from Western Pennsylvania to ever receive that honor.

In Pittsburgh there used to be an annual tournament called the “Dapper Dan Roundball Classic” which B.B. Flenory played in several times. It would pit a Pennsylvania team of all-stars against an all-star team made up of players from around the United States. In one game of that tournament, Flenory scored 25 points to lead all scorers.

During his junior season Valley High School was ranked fifth in the country and that team was voted by area coaches as the greatest team in Allegheny-Kiski Valley area history. After a historic high school career, Flenory wanted to play ball in college at West Virginia University but instead stayed close to his parents by accepting a scholarship to play with Norm Nixon at Duquesne University his freshman year.

While playing for the Dukes, Flenory scored over 40 points twice. When he faced West Virginia University, his first choice school, Flenory scored 48 points in their coliseum establishing a new record for that facility and subsequently being named Sports Illustrated’s Player of the Week. West Virginia also had a tournament named the “West Virginia Mountaineer Classic” where Flenory scored 41 points in the first round of one tournament and then followed that up with another 48 in the championship game thus the 89 points scored became a tournament record and Flenory was named M.V.P.

While playing for Duquesne, B.B. Flenory was named to Atlantic 10’s first-team in both his junior and senior seasons. Flenory led the league in scoring during his junior season while averaging 21 points per game. Flenory is the only player in Duquesne basketball history to lead the team in scoring and assists in three straight seasons. The last time the Dukes made the NCAA March madness tournament was in 1977 and BB Flenory started for Duquesne in those playoffs as a freshman. B.B. was named captain of the team his senior year, and their team was invited to the National Invitation Tournament (NIT).

In 1980, B.B. Flenory was called for a tryout with the Boston Celtics. Of the rookies invited to training camp, Flenory was the final cut among other rookies. He explains that it wasn’t a case of him not being a good enough player but the competition to make the roster was at the highest level. The rookies that did make the team were none other than Larry Bird and Gerald Henderson. But also, on that roster were some very impressive names. Tiny Archibald, M.L. Carr, Don Chaney, Dave Cowens, Chris Ford, Cedric Maxwell, Rick Robey, and the great Pete Maravich. That talent was just too rich with some of these men eventually ending up in the Basketball Hall of Fame.

One of B.B. Flenory’s highest honors came in 2010 when he was inducted into the WPIAL Hall of Fame. Even more impressive is the fact that the Pittsburgh Basketball Club has created a new award named in his honor which will be the “BB Flenory Guard of the Year Award” and goes to the top high school guard in Western Pennsylvania. When asked about this honor B.B. said:

“I am really humbled and honored to have an award named after me. That may sound like the company line. I have received a lot of awards in my lifetime, but I have never received one as special as this. My legacy will live on and on for my kids, grandkids, and great grandkids. I began playing basketball in 3rd grade and this is one of the highlights of my life. In 1968 Valley had a great team and won the section championship and that’s when I knew that basketball was going to be my game.”

In New Kensington, Pennsylvania where B.B. Flenory grew up and played his basketball on community courts, there will be a court built in his honor. On Barnes Street in New Kensington there will be court number “15” the jersey number Flenory wore while in high school.

There have been numerous honors in B.B. Flenory’s life. In 2016, he was voted onto a team made up of 26 other players that were Duquesne University’s “All-Century” team. Flenory said, “I was glad the fans voted for me. It shows the fans from New Kensington and Pittsburgh remember B.B., and I appreciate it.”

So, anyone currently living in Pittsburgh, those who grew up in this great city, mention high school and college basketball and the name B.B. Flenory will absolutely come into the conversation. The name Flenory is synonymous with basketball in the Steel City. All the honors and accolades are well deserved. Basketball fans like me from Pittsburgh who had the opportunity to see B.B. Flenory play will remember well his flashy skills, his ball handling capabilities, and his all-around showmanship personality.

These days Flenory is a Transition Specialist at the Pressley Ridge School in Pittsburgh where he helps troubled and mentally challenged youths. Flenory also runs his own basketball camps and is the Vice President of the “Willie Thrower Foundation” that honors the memory of the former NFL quarterback, the first African American quarterback to play in the National Football League.

Follow Us On

The Indian cricket team aims to secure their maiden Test series victory in South Africa when they face the Proteas in a two-match Test series commencing on December 26th (Boxing Day) at the Centurion. The next test match will mark the debut of captain Rohit, experienced batsman Virat Kohli, and key fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah following their defeat in the final of the ICC ODI World Cup 2023.  

India concluded the ODI series with a 2-1 victory despite playing with a less experienced team after drawing the T20I leg of their South Africa visit. They are optimistic that their success in limited-overs cricket will carry over to the game’s longer format as they aim to achieve their first-ever Test series win in South Africa.

India has been visiting South Africa since the 1992-93 season, although they have been unsuccessful in winning a Test series. In the 2010-11 season, the Proteas came close to winning but ultimately drew the penultimate match, resulting in a 1-1 tie for the three-match Test series.

South Africa vs Indian Freedom Trophy Test Series 2023/24: Team Updates 

Several senior members not included in the white-ball teams have returned for the Test series. Rohit Sharma, who experienced heartache in the 2023 World Cup final, is set to play his first international game as the team’s leader since then. Ishan Kishan has opted out of the series due to personal circumstances, resulting in KS Bharat being selected as his successor. The development occurred within 48 hours following Mohammed Shami’s exclusion from the tour due to his ankle issue.

India has suffered another setback as Ruturaj Gaikwad has been out from the Test series owing to a fractured finger, which is expected to require approximately five weeks for recovery.

Temba Bavuma, who was given a break during the ODI series, will resume his role as the leader of the South African team. However, it is unclear if Kagiso Rabada can play, even though he has been included in the squad.

The left-arm seamer Nandre Burger, who performed exceptionally well in the limited-overs matches, has been selected for his first Test match, along with batsman David Bedingham and Tristan Stubbs. Additionally, wicket-keeper Kyle Verreynee has been brought back into the team. Dean Elgar, the ex-South Africa skipper, has officially declared his retirement, making this series his final appearance.

SA vs. IND Test Series 2023/24: Predictions and Odds 

In 2021, during their most recent tour to Centurion, India emerged victorious in the Test match held at SuperSport Park, marking the beginning of their series with a triumph. However, they subsequently suffered defeats in matches held at Newlands and the Wanderers.

There is no doubt about the excellence of India’s fast bowlers, but they must also be cautious about their over-rates while relying largely on their quicks.

South Africa had emerged victorious in eight out of their previous nine Test matches at SuperSport Park. However, the defeat against India stands out as an exception. The opening duo of KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal played a crucial role in the first stages of the contest.

Betting odds from the recommended bookies in India have released prices for the first test series match on December 26: 

South Africa [2.72] 

Indian [2.36]

Regardless of how powerful the SuperSport Park wicket appears, the team that wins the toss will almost surely begin batting first.

Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin’s versatility could give India a significant batting depth advantage over South Africa, which relies heavily on specialists.

Injury concerns also plague South Africa’s premier fast bowlers, as Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi have missed the white-ball series due to nagging ailments.

And for these reasons, we believe the sportsbooks are correct in placing India as the betting favourite.

The Philadelphia Eagles can’t seem to catch a break right now.

On top of their current slump, they will now be without one of their best players for their Monday night wild card matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, star W.R. A.J. Brown will miss the game with a knee injury, but he’s expected to be available next week if the team advances to the NFC Divisional Round.

The former Tennesee Titans star injured his knee in the regular season finale during the loss to the New York Giants.

He missed his second straight practice on Friday and also made the news for wiping out all Eagles-related information and pictures from his Instagram account and deactivating his Twitter account.

At least both Jalen Hurts and DeVonta Smith have been full participants at practice and are fully expected to be healthy and play in this must-win matchup.

The Eagles started off the season 10-1 but lost five of their last six games.

They wasted multiple opportunities to run away with the NFC East Division and get the No. 2 seed in the NFC, and they’re on upset alert against a tough Buccaneers defense that could give them a lot of trouble.

Crazy as it may seem, this has put Nick Sirianni on the hot seat, as he seems to have lost his locker room’s trust.

It’s not usual to see a team firing a coach just one year after making this Super Bowl, but their meltdown hasn’t been usual, either.

آس 90 : Dodgers’ trade for Tyler Glasnow helps club solidify starting rotation

Dodgers’ trade for Tyler Glasnow helps club solidify starting rotation


سایت ace90
سایت آس نود
سایت آس90

The Los Angeles Dodgers signed the best free agent ever earlier this week. But even that didn’t address their biggest need.

The club inked Shohei Ohtani to a record 10-year deal, yet because he’s not expected to pitch until 2025, the Dodgers needed to bolster their starting rotation, which had taken successive hits in recent seasons. Thursday’s trade for right-hander Tyler Glasnow, which isn’t yet official, accomplishes that, adding a frontline starter to the fold.

Here’s a closer look at the deal as reported and what it means.

The deal: Tampa Bay Rays traded right-hander Tyler Glasnow and outfielder Manuel Margot to the Los Angeles Dodgers for right-hander Ryan Pepiot and outfielder Jonny Deluca. The Dodgers and Glasnow then reportedly agreed to an extension worth $135 million over five years. 

The runners-up: Glasnow had been mentioned in trade rumours for months, with the Angels, Reds and Cubs among clubs linked to him.

The player: Glasnow is the headliner of the trade, so we’ll focus on him. The 30-year-old right-hander possesses one of the most promising arms in the game but has yet to put together a full season due to several injuries. However, despite missing the first two months of the 2023 season with an oblique injury, Glasnow clearly found his form.

The right-hander posted a 3.53 ERA and 2.91 FIP over 21 starts and 120 innings this past season — both career highs. He produced a monster 33.4 per cent strikeout rate, which placed him in the 97 percentile of major leaguers, and generated a career-high 3.2 wins above replacement, per FanGraphs.

Glasnow underwent Tommy John surgery on his right elbow in 2021, and the sense now is that his arm is fully recovered and primed for success. The Dodgers certainly believe so, evidenced by the reported contract the club doled out to him.

The fit: The Dodgers’ rotation endured a major blow in late 2022 when right-hander Walker Buehler underwent Tommy John surgery. Then, during the 2023 season, right-hander Julio Urias (who’s now a free agent) was placed on administrative leave by Major League Baseball after he was arrested on suspicion of felony domestic violence. Long-time ace Clayton Kershaw was injured and ineffective down the stretch and, as a result of all that attrition, the Dodgers’ rotation was exposed during a NL Division Series sweep at the hands of the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Glasnow adds certainty to the team’s rotation picture and with Buehler set to return next season, the Dodgers appear to be in great shape. Add Ohtani to the mound mix beyond that, and we’re looking at a scary collection of arms on a team that has made the post-season in each of the last 11 years.

The next domino: Japanese right-hander Yoshinobu Yamamoto is the most coveted starter on the free agent market and the Dodgers were reportedly a primary suitor prior to this trade. It’s unclear how the deal for Glasnow impacts that, but it’s worth noting that Ohtani appeared at the organization’s meeting with Yamamoto.
