Owusu Bempah lauds new coach Kenichi Yatsuhashi

first_imgHearts of Oak full back Joseph Owusu Bempah has lauded the training techniques new coach Kenichi Yatsuhashi has brought to the club.This follows skepticism which hanged around the appointment of Kenichi after many touted him as a mere college coach. Yatsuhashi is bent on overturning Hearts of Oak’s dismal run where they have gone six years without a league trophy. According to the Black Satellites captain, he and his colleagues have enjoyed their first week of pre-season under the tutelage of the Japanese American.“To me he is good because the training routine he has been giving us is really good,” Bempah told Joy Sports.“So far we have been enjoying him. We are experiencing new training techniques. My colleagues and I are talking about the training. It is a new thing all together [and] we are enjoying it. I think he will bring good things this season.” “We are trying to make sure we pass through our fitness level and we make sure go to our ball work. We are ensuring we get to our maximum level that we can get for the next season.”Hearts are expected to intensify their pre-season preparations with the league rumored to start in December.–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.

Mason Rudolph: ‘We Just Control What We Can Control’

first_imgHe’s right about the rushing. It was just OSU’s fifth 300-yard game on the ground since 2010. An incredible performance by all parties, and Justice Hill and Chris Carson were magnificent. Rudolph was pretty strong with his legs as well as he scampered for one TD and bulled his way to another.He now has these stats on the year:64% completions326 yards per game29 total TDs4 INTHe’s also approaching the rare 4,000-yard club through the air. He needs around 500 yards in Bedlam and the bowl game to join Brandon Weeden as the only two OSU QBs to ever do it. And about that bowl game (and backdoor CFB Playoff appearance).“You know I think we just control what we can control,” said Rudolph. “We played our butts off and you know really, really proud of our team and we’re looking forward to going into an off week, getting healthy and playing for a Big Te….Big 12 championship. That’s all we’re worried about.”The Freudian slip was terrific. The 10-1 record even better. Mason Rudolph was 17/34 for 207 yards and a TD and another 23 yards on seven carries (and 2 TDs) on the ground. It was a good (not great) road performance for QB1 who moved to 21-5 as a starter and 15-0 against teams in the Big 12 not named Baylor.He spoke with FS1’s Bruce Feldman after the game about what made OSU click on offense and what his thoughts are on the CFB Playoff rankings.“I think our defense played great all day got us a lot of key turnovers there in the second half,” said Rudolph. “Really proud of those guys. You know, combine that with running the ball for over 300 yards was big time and really proud of those guys up front.” While you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member.

Watch: Jhajuan Seales Career Highlights

first_imgJhajuan Seales had an underrated career at Oklahoma State. He finished with 1,785 receiving yards (No. 11 all-time at OSU) and 12 touchdowns and became a game changer for the Cowboys in 2016.Although his big-play potential may overshadow it, he was also the Cowboys’ best blocker from the wideout position. A fact which earned him plenty of on-field time as a senior while Marcell Ateman missed 2016 with injury.Enjoy some awesome highlights from Seales’ four-year career as a Cowboy.

Gundy, OSU Placing Value On Non-Traditional Recruits

first_imgBoth of the Oklahoma State football team’s two glaring holes coming into the 2017 season were filled in exactly 13 hours.ESPN’s Jake Trotter reported at 7:10 p.m. Tuesday that Adrian Baker, former Clemson cornerback and graduate transfer, had committed his final year of eligibility to the Cowboys. Then at 10:10 a.m. Wednesday, he reported that Aaron Cochran, fellow grad transfer and former Cal offensive tackle, decided on Stillwater, too.Had neither chose OSU, freshmen Rodarius Williams (corner) and Dylan Galloway (tackle) would have probably been the projected starters in 2017.With recent non-traditional commits such as Baker, Cochran and Tyron Johnson, who is eligible this season, coach Mike Gundy and his staff have clearly placed added emphasis on using diversity in their recruiting to bolster or fill spots on the depth chart.It not easy though, he said; graduate transfers are smart. They know what they want, and they know what they are looking for in a program, he said. Some, probably like Cochran, are looking for more wins and a bowl game. Others, probably like Baker, are after more playing time, especially after tearing his ACL last year.“It’s a completely different world in so-called recruiting them than a high school player – because they know, and they know exactly what they’re looking for,” said Gundy.Gundy has clearly figured out how to live in that world. Here is a list of the non-traditional proven standouts on the OSU roster for the past three seasons as a reference:Larry Williams (Transferred from East Carolina/Hutchinson CC)Chad Whitener (Transferred from Cal)Tralund Webber (Transferred from Blinn College)DeQuinton Osborne (Transferred from Kilgore JC)Barry J. Sanders (Grad transfer from Stanford)Lenzy Pipkins (Grad transfer from Louisiana-Monroe)Jordan Burton (Transferred from Kilgore JC)Chris Carson (Transferred from Butler CC)Derrick Moncrief (Transferred from Auburn)Devante Averette (Transferred from Ellsworth CC)Victor Salako (Transferred from UAB)Motekiai Maile (Transferred from Tyler JC)Michael Hunter (Grad transfer from Indiana)This doesn’t even include Johnson (LSU) and Patrick Macon (Arizona Western), both of whom could factor into OSU’s rotation this season. Of course if the right voice leads the way, preferably a player, that school is going to have a better chance at landing him. But that means an honest voice, not a PR-type one.Gundy said he tells recruits to visit with as many current players as possible on their visits because they are the ones who can give the most accurate representation of the school and what it has to offer athletically. Again, that’s not to say if you talk to enough people, eventually one is going to say the right thing.“We’re not and the players probably aren’t smart enough to program them into saying what we want them to say,” Gundy said. “They’re gonna tell it like it is.”Senior safety Tre Flowers is one of those guys. He said he hosted Baker on his visit before he committed Tuesday. He was as honest as he could be, he said. He tells recruits, especially Baker, that the coaches are bringing them to Stillwater for a reason, and it’s not to ride the bench. He said that’s why he is at OSU.“(My hosts) told me it was a family atmosphere,” Flowers said. “I wouldn’t want to build anything off any lies.”He said he feels like the culture at OSU provides recruits the best opportunity, “in the big picture,” which is why the Cowboys have signed so many fifth-year players.The first relationship is always the most important. Gundy said for visits, he pairs graduate transfers, and all other recruits for that matter, with players from the team based on hometown, position and background. With an emphasis on the third item in that list.If the Cowboys have a two-year player who has made the adjustment, he will likely be called to show another potential two-year player or graduate transfer around.“You’re coming into a new culture, and a lot has to happen in a short amount of time for a fifth-year guy to adjust and play and have success,” Gundy said. “He only has two months to get used to it.” While you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member.

Steve Price fires up the Mixed 20’s

first_imgProud Queenslander and Australian front rower, Steve Price has achieved the pinnacle in Rugby League. Price spoke to the Mixed 20’s team before their first clash with New Zealand. A school friend of Mixed 20’s coach Karley Banks, Price took time out to visit the Trusts Stadium in his adopted homeland, Auckland.The hosts are the kings of the Mixed game and the Karley Banks side is determined to knock them off their perch. A difficult task indeed.Price spoke of a similar situation of when the New Zealand Warriors where to face the Melbourne Storm in the 2008 Finals Series. Few people gave the Warriors any chance aginst the defending premiers on their home ground, a venue of which they had only lost a few games in three years. The first placed team had also never lost to the eighth placed team in finals history.The Warriors went on to win that game against all odds. They had self belief and confidence in the players to make a difference.Price challenged the players to do the same in this all-important clash. He urged them to have the time of their life, support each other, and do everything they possibly can to make a difference, to triumph against all adversity.Price said it is an honour to represent your country and those individuals in the room should be proud. They represent all Australians from across the globe as the best of the best.Price wished the players the best of luck and to come off the field with no regrets, with a feeling they have done all that they can.The presence of Price motivated the players immensely and we wish the best of luck to the players.last_img read more

Know Before You Go: Building Confidence On Both Sides

first_imgNican aims to create active and dynamic national links between people, places and resources that improve access to recreation experiences for people with disabilities and their communities. Know Before You Go is a new, joined up approach which works to address barriers faced by providers and people with disabilities themselves. A series of learning circles has worked to encourage participants to investigate their own barriers to engagement, develop strategies and take action to get out and involved in the community in the activities that they love. These learning circles have assisted the development of a tool kit of information, facts sheets, checklists and resources that can be used by mainstream recreation providers to build their organisation’s confidence in becoming more inclusive and accessible for people with disability. There are two parts to the resource, with part two being for sport and recreation organisations. To view this resource, please click on the link below. http://www.nican.com.au/node/15103 Please also find attached a copy of the research report ‘Getting involved in sport: Participation and non-participation of people with disability in sport and active recreation’ from the Australian Sports Commission. This research report examines the factors that influence the participation and non-participation of people with disability in sport and active recreation. Over 1000 people with disability, who were both participants and non-participants in sport and active recreation, provided results for the report. The aim of the research was to provide validated data and information to sport sector partners to help them plan and implement quality programs. Attached is a copy of the full report, as well as a summary outlining the key findings.Participation and non-participation of people with disability in sport and active recreationSummary of disability research reportlast_img read more
