You know, do their homework with them and the same with my missus.“I think we are all realising how much we need each other. We are in a world here where everything is social media, everything is a WhatsApp text.“But how important is touching each other, feeling each other and hugging each other? I miss that a lot with a lot of people that I love.”Third-tier Portsmouth, who lost to Arsenal in the FA Cup on March 2, have since had five players test positive for the coronavirus.“They are all feeling reasonably good,” assistant manager Joe Gallen told the Guardian.Portsmouth are chasing promotion to the Championship and Gallen added: “When we were told we were going to shut down on March 13, it was a huge disappointment.“But after a bit of sober reflection, you do start to think that football does seem a bit irrelevant.” London, United Kingdom | AFP | Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta believes the ‘homework’ he has set his players during the coronavirus outbreak could see some of them become coaches.With the Premier League halted and Britain in a state of lockdown, players are having to train at home.Arteta tested positive for COVID-19 a fortnight ago but has now recovered.“There is the psychological support that they need, which we are giving them (the players),” Arteta, who turned 38 on Thursday, told Arsenal’s website.“And as well I’m giving them a lot of homework to do because I’ve been reviewing everything that we’ve been doing since I joined.“There are things we have to maintain doing, improve and develop, and individually they are really enjoying the challenge.“We might get a few coaches after this virus, or at least a few players that are willing to go down that path, because I think they are really enjoying the process.”Arteta, a father of three children, said he was trying to make the best of a bad situation.
By John Burton Red Bank Regional High School is a community in pain, as its members struggle to come to terms with the sudden loss of a well-loved student.“Grief has no limits,” observed Suzanne Keller, program coordinator of the School Based Youth Service Program, at the high school, 101 Ridge Road, Little Silver, as she works with the community to deal with this loss.The program, commonly known as The Source, has seen more than 70 of the high school students coming forward to seek counseling following the sudden death of Albert Edward Martin Jr. The lone senior on the varsity team, Martin collapsed Dec. 3 during a team scrimmage and died.“This was a safe haven for them,” Keller said of the program, as its five full-time counselors addressed the grief students were experiencing over the loss of Martin, who many considered a best friend. His personality crossed many socioeconomic and cultural boundaries among the school’s diverse population.That outpouring continues as students maintain their efforts to raise money to help Martin’s family with the funeral expenses and to honor his memory, said Marianne Kligman, the school’s information officer.Schoolmates have established a small memorial at Martin’s locker; they have written their reflections on a large canvas placed in the school’s common area (which will be given to Martin’s mother); and Martin’s basketball jersey number, 34, will be retired during the first home game on Monday, Dec. 17, Kligman said.“I tell kids this was a tragedy for our school,” Keller says she tells those coming to the Source for support, and addresses what they are feeling.The Rev. James A. Jackson Jr. offers words of comfort and condolences to family and friends during the funeral of Albert Martin Jr., held Dec. 8 at the First Presbyterian Church of Red Bank.There was a sense of profound loss, grief, sadness and tears from the crowd that filled the First Presbyterian Church of Red Bank, also known as Tower Hill Church, at Martin’s Dec. 8 funeral. There also were fond remembrances and smiles and even some laughter as they said goodbye to their friend, known to just about everyone who came in contact with the 6-foot 5-inch student as “Biggie.Hundreds of people crammed into the church, 255 Harding Road, for the viewing and service, with fellow students, family, friends and school and local elected officials on hand to share their grief and memories of the young man.In a voice wavering with emotion, Red Bank Regional Principal Risa Clay read Maya Angelou’s “When Great Trees Fall,” making that connection to Martin, whom she called “a gentle giant.”Martin had the ability to cross racial and socioeconomic lines and “touch hundreds of lives,” in his community and the diverse one that populates the regional high school, she said.“Some of us are angry and some are shocked,” at having lost him, she said. “But all of our lives are better for,” having known Martin.David Prown is a Red Bank business owner with a longstanding history of involvement in helping area youth, was introduced as a mentor to Martin. Prown recalled meeting Albert when the boy was in fifth grade and was playing first base on a local baseball league.“He was bigger than the umpire,” even at that young age, Prown remembered.Prown recalled Martin’s favorite question to him over the years: “Mr. Prown, do you want to get something to eat?” he would ask, usually wanting to go to Burger King. Prown also talked of taking Albert to see a production at the Two River Theater. “The moment the theater went dark, Albert went to sleep,” Prown said, adding it wasn’t long after that Martin began to snore – loudly.Prown’s comments caused the congregation to chuckle and Prown asked them to “close your eyes and think of your favorite Albert memory and open your eyes and see the smiles around you.”Scott Martin, Albert’s basketball coach said, “This week at the high school was one of the most painful times of my life,” … there was “so much hurt, so much pain.“But, there is also something beautiful,” in the way he touched many lives across so many cultural lines and could even disarm the coach or teachers who were irked over some infraction. “He didn’t even have to try … he just did it,” the coach said, with his own voice quivering.“He had this smile,” remembered fellow student Garrett Sickels, “He had this quality of reassurance.”Sickels said he knew Martin since the two were 6-year-olds and became close friends over the course of their lives. They and others would regularly go to a local Chinese buffet restaurant – because it could appease Martin’s large appetite, Sickels said.After Martin’s death, teammates went to the restaurant where Sickels said he opened the fortune cookie that read: “Every down hill has an uphill” and among the lucky numbers was 34 – Albert’s team number and his lucky one.“It was Albert’s way of saying he’s OK,” Sickels assured the mourners.After the funeral, the crowd and family climbed into waiting cars, while others milled around in front of the church. Ishier Lawrence, a 17-year-old Red Bank resident, loosened his dark tie and looked at the hearse preparing to depart.“He was like a brother,” Lawrence said, explaining Martin and he would hang out together, playing Xbox and would go to Elsie’s Subs in Red Bank regularly.“Albert put other people ahead of him. He was a good soul,” Lawrence said before stepping away to read a text on his cellphone. “It was hard to see him go, he had such a bright future ahead of him.”
GENE VOSS, PART OWNER, DECKED OUT, WINNER: “With these conditions, I didn’t know what to expect, but of course, what do I know? She ran great. JOCKEY QUOTES TRAINER QUOTES KEITH DESORMEAUX, DECKED OUT, WINNER: “There’s no doubt (the added distance helped). We finally figured it out after 10 races . . . She doesn’t want to be pushed on, she wants to sit chilly and let her do it on her own, and that’s what Kent did. He never moved on her the whole race. All he does is point her in the right direction.“I wish I could say that I’ve done something different with her, but really, it’s just been the switch to turf that’s turned her around. It only took us about eight races to figure out that we should try the grass, and really, that’s been the biggest reason.” KENT DESORMEAUX, DECKED OUT, WINNER: “I wouldn’t compare the journey (today) to her mental progress. The reason she had that trip, last time, was because I had to bury her, she wanted the race Quarter Horse style. She’s been that way since the first day she’s run. Now, she’s matured. She’s letting me drive, instead of wanting to go (all) out.” NOTES: The winning owners are Gene Voss of San Antonio and Matt Bryan (Big Chief Racing) of Ft. Worth.

Cleveland Browns’ Spelling ErrorFor the second year in a row, the Cleveland Browns had some difficulty announcing one of their first-round picks on Twitter. Last year, while announcing the selection of Johnny Manziel, Cleveland’s Twitter account misspelled “22nd.” It took them three tries to get it right. And tonight, while announcing the selection of Florida State offensive lineman Cameron Erving, the Browns spelled the player’s last name wrong. It’s “Erving,” not “Irving.”The Browns just misspelled the name of their own 1st round pick. Sigh…. pic.twitter.com/eF1Y0uDcEi— Al Ciammaichella (@Gotribe31) May 1, 2015Thankfully, it didn’t take them too long to correct it.

The Philadelphia 76ers are going to make the playoffs — not that their best players know what that feels like. Teams with their level of inexperience don’t usually push past the first round. Can the Sixers break the mold?
Sophomores ruled the day Monday for Ohio State men’s basketball as the Big Ten Conference announced its all-conference selections and awards. Buckeyes’ sophomore forward Jared Sullinger was a first-team Big Ten selection by the coaches and media while sophomore guard Aaron Craft was named Defensive Player of the Year by the conference’s coaches. Sophomore forward Deshaun Thomas was named a second-team All-Big Ten selection by the coaches, and the media and coaches named senior guard William Buford to the second team. Sullinger, who averaged 17 points and nine rebounds per game, was a unanimous selection to the first team for a second consecutive year. Craft’s selection as the defensive player of the year is the first for OSU since 2007 and the fourth in the history of the program. Craft, who was also given a Big Ten Sportsmanship award, told the Big Ten Network that his defensive game benefitted from playing against his older brother as a child. “I couldn’t score on those guys,” Craft said. “I could frustrate them a lot on defense. I got in a couple fights with my brother and some of his friends. So it kind of started back then. Just growing up, (defense) is just something that I’ve enjoyed and I really like doing and understood that that is what is going to help the team the most.” Thomas and Buford both averaged 15 points and five rebounds per game. The Buckeyes (25-6, 13-5 Big Ten) jumped three spots in the latest Associated Press Top 25 poll to the No. 7 spot. OSU defeated Michigan State, 72-70, Sunday on a last-second 2-point shot by Buford. With the win, OSU clinched a three-way tie for the conference’s regular season title with the Spartans and Michigan. Though it conceded an outright regular season conference title with the loss to the Buckeyes, the MSU program came away with some major Big Ten hardware Monday as possible consolation. Spartans senior forward Draymond Green claimed the Big Ten’s Player of the Year award, as well as a unanimous first-team honor from the coaches and media. MSU coach Tom Izzo was a unanimous Coach of the Year honoree. Other award winners include Michigan freshman guard Trey Burke who split Freshman of the Year honors with Indiana forward Cody Zeller. OSU will begin postseason play on Friday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Ind., as the No. 3 seed in the Big Ten Tournament. The Buckeyes will play the winner of Thursday’s Purdue-Nebraska opening-round game. OSU’s postseason will tip at about 9 p.m.
What might have been a hot streak for Ohio State’s women’s soccer team finally went cold in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. After capturing the Big Ten Tournament championship on Nov. 4, the No. 4-seeded Buckeyes (16-4-2) played 90 minutes of regulation and 20 minutes of overtime before losing to Oakland University on penalty kicks, 3-1, Saturday evening at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. The loss snapped a nine-game winning streak for OSU, a feat that tied the school record set back in 2004. Over the course of that span, the Buckeyes outscored opponents 25-5. While OSU had little trouble getting shots on the goal during Saturday’s contest, outnumbering Oakland 28-5, putting the ball in the back of the net proved a different story. “Soccer’s a cruel game and to outshoot a team 28-5 it’s a pretty tough one to swallow,” said OSU coach Lori Walker. “We have to credit Oakland for finding a way to win.” In the game’s shootout, Oakland managed to score on its first two kicks as redshirt senior goalkeeper Shannon Coley managed to thwart OSU’s first three attempts. After the Golden Grizzlies missed their next two shots, the Buckeyes made their fourth kick, keeping their hopes alive. Oakland, though, had other plans as it made its fifth and final shot to clinch the victory. For some members of the OSU squad that started this season’s campaign 0-2, it was their final time suiting up in the Scarlet and Gray. “I’m proud of every single girl on the roster and it’s a hell of a way to end a season. It’s unfortunate, the circumstance, but I can’t say that’s there’s any girl that I look and should have their head down,” said senior defender Lauren Granberg. Despite OSU’s 7-3 shot advantage in the first half, junior midfielder Julianne Boyle and the Golden Grizzlies drew first blood in the 41st minute and took the 1-0 lead. In the second half, the Buckeyes sent a barrage of 15 shots at Coley, who made four saves, but could not keep out one from OSU’s leading scorer. Senior forward Tiffany Cameron scored her 21st goal of the season in the 60th minute thanks to an assist from Granberg and sophomore midfielder Ellyn Gruber, knotting the score up at 1-1. Cameron led all members involved in the contest in shots on the goal with eight, three more than Oakland’s five tries. Cameron’s goal was the first score surrendered by Oakland since an Oct. 20 loss at Fort Wayne. With the loss the Buckeyes finish their 2012 season with a 16-4-2 mark and the program’s third Big Ten Tournament Championship. “To end our season on a tie and loss in penalty kicks is a pretty tough ending to a pretty fantastic season,” Walker said. Oakland will take on Texas A&M in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
Manchester City celebrated the title by smashing Swansea 5-0 at the Etihad Stadium.If anyone had any doubts about what’s going to happen in today’s matchup between Manchester City and Swansea, those doubts were put to bed in The Citizens’ 5-0 utter domination of Swansea. David Silva and Raheem Sterling scored the goals in the first half and then Kevin De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva and Gabriel Jesus finished off The Swans. De Bruyne’s strike was an absolute thunder bolt. The final statistics said that City had 83% of the possession, 12 shots on goal compared to Swansea’s 1 and 986 total passes compared to Swansea’s 196. The win could’ve been bigger if Gabriel Jesus had converted a penalty kick in the 63rd minute.This 29th victory takes Guardiola’s impressive team to 90 points, six from breaking Chelsea’s Premier League record of 95. If City takes the maximum remaining points available, it will break the century mark and finish with 102. The Citizens also have 98 goals, 6 short of breaking the highest-ever tally of 103, also set by Chelsea.
