A Maricopa school has brought home a state championship on the gridiron.

Heritage Academy recently won the Canyon Athletic Association middle school Division 2 flag football title, defeating Heritage Mesa, 22-20, in overtime to complete a 13-1 season.

“This is a big thing for Heritage,” said head coach Jason Schalow. “It’s their first championship of any kind in football.”

When the season started, Schalow and his assistant coach, Kevin Doscher, did not have visions of a state championship. In fact, the volunteer coaches wondered if they could be competitive.

The Heroes’ season began in December with just three players, including Doscher’s son Brennan.

“We were down and out at that point,” Schalow said. “We were seriously worried we wouldn’t have enough players to play the season. We didn’t have a final roster until after winter break.”

Schalow and Doscher took a creative approach to recruiting players. Since this was the first year of tackle football at Heritage, several players switched to the flag team after a two-week clinic on tackle football. They also dipped into another sport to generate recruits – baseball.

“We sold the baseball coach on the benefits of playing football,” Doscher said. “We told him it would be good for them to do something different and avoid getting burned out on baseball. So, in the end we got three of our best kids from the baseball team.”

Flag football for 6th, 7th and 8th graders is played with six players and no linemen, so speed and quickness are far more advantageous than size. The Heritage coaches, who knew what they were looking for after coaching a 10-12 age group for several years, evaluated their roster and brought in players who fit that mold. They also recruited from the flag football class offered at Heritage. The team included one girl, backup center Hailey Mattson.

“We had to evaluate their speed because it’s all about speed and quickness,” said Schalow. “We started with simple drills because a lot of the kids hadn’t played football before. We ran the (passing) route tree and did basic drills like backpedal, pass rush, agility and speed drills.”

From the group that came out for the team, the coaches cut the roster to 14, the size determined by the capacity of the school’s travel van.

Going into the first game, the coaches were not sure exactly what they had. They found out quickly, as the Heroes demolished Imagine Prep from Coolidge, 47-0.

“I jumped for joy after winning that first game,” Schalow said.

“We had an idea after the first game that it would be a good season,” Doscher added.

They were right. The Heroes stormed through the regular season with 10 wins and just one loss, outscoring their opponents by a margin of 457-125 for the regular season. The only loss came against

Tennis

District 8-1A

Led by junior Ryan Powell, the Master’s Academy boys tennis team nipped St. Edward’s for the team championship by a single point at Riverside Park in Vero Beach.

Powell clinched a berth as an individual to the state tournament after defeating St. Edward’s Jake Damiani in straight sets at No. 1 singles which proved to be vital for the Patriots earning the title.

For the Pirates, at No. 1 doubles Damiani and Justin Hall were able to defeat the Patriots’ doubles duo of Powell and Jason Flaming in straight sets to earn their spot at the state tournament.

St. Edward’s grabbed the runner-up spot, getting a victory from sophomore Caroline Zoltak at No. 5 singles and the Pirates will travel to play Edgewood also on Apr. 19.

District 8-3A

Martin County’s boys and Okeechobee’s girls repeated as district champions at the Okeechobee Sports Complex.

Each school had their No. 1 singles bring home a victory and secure their spot at the state tournament as Dylan deWindt for the Tigers and Bellana Schlosser for the Brahmans will automatically compete as individuals.

The two also will be in the field for the doubles competition at state as deWindt teamed with his brother Jaden to earn a hard-fought victory at No. 1 doubles. Rallying from dropping the first set, the DeWindt’s won the second set 6-1 and claimed the tiebreaker 10-4.

Schlosser and Isabella Derigo were victorious at No. 1 doubles for Okeechobee, who will host the regional quarterfinal on Tuesday, Apr. 19.

Martin County’s girls finished as the runner-up and will go on the road to begin the state playoffs.

Softball

Lincoln Park Academy 12, Okeechobee 4: Madison Davis struck out 16 and didn’t allow an earned run and went 2-for-3 with a home run and three RBI to lead the way for the Greyhounds (4-6). Callan Kloeckner went 3-for-3 with a double and two RBI, Justice Monds had a double and two RBI and Kaitlyn Ward went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI for Lincoln Park.

Jensen Beach 19, Fort Pierce Central 8 (6 innings): A nine-run first inning propelled the Falcons (5-8), who were led by a 5-for-5, six-RBI day from Mallory Wheeler. Wheeler struck out 10 in a complete game, Shawna McNair went 2-for-3

Seth Anderson knew there was something special about the Columbia Academy softball program when he was named the head coach in 2018.

His wife Emily had been the coach of the Lady Bulldogs the three prior seasons and Seth, a Columbia Academy alum, knew it wouldn’t take much to elevate the program to the next level.

In his first year, the Lady Bulldogs won 14 games. The next year they brought home the program’s first-ever gold ball. COVID-19 took away a repeat bid, but the Lady Bulldogs rebounded last season by winning more than 40 games and another state title.

Now with another talented group, Anderson and the Lady Bulldogs are looking for their third consecutive straight title.

GIRLS BASKETBALL PLAYERS OF THE YEAR: Prairie Stedman kept Spring Hill afloat to capture girls basketball player of the year

“I think the biggest thing is that we have a lot of really talented players who have bought in to what we’ve been trying to build,” Anderson said. “It’s hard work, and these girls work in the weight room and in the cages as soon as we get back to school up until the start of the season. They’ve bought in, and they’re just extremely talented players.

“Southern Middle Tennessee is a hotbed for softball. Where we’re at, softball is the dominant sport, and that really helps us.”

While there was plenty of young talent already on the roster that would continue to grow and get better after that first state title run, a few new additions helped take the Lady Bulldogs get even better.

Senior Averi Slaughter came to Columbia Academy after her freshman season at Santa Fe. Slaughter knew several of the girls on the team already from travel ball and wanted to play with them.

“The girls really talked me into coming here after my freshman year, and I’m really glad that they did,” Slaughter said. “I knew a bunch of the girls already, and when we played them in the state tournament my freshman year, I knew it was going to be a challenge.”

A COVID-shortened season only allowed Slaughter to play four games with the Lady Bulldogs in 2020, but she made the most out of her first full-season last year going 24-0.

A tougher schedule this season has seen Slaughter lose a couple of games, but she’s found success more often than not with a 14-4 record a few no-hitters through the first month of the season.

Myleah Hardy also added a new dimension to an already-loaded roster: power.

The Dickson County transfer joined the Lady Bulldogs last season and immediately made an impact, setting a new school record with 20 home runs.

Three-time defending Class 7A state champion Thompson will start 2022 with a pair of high-profile matchups against out-of-state teams.

The Warriors will travel to Milton, Ga., for their opener against perennial power Buford, Ga., in the Freedom Bowl. The exact date for that game hasn’t been set, but will be either Aug. 18, 19 or 20.

Thompson will then return home to host Lipscomb, Tenn., and high-profile coach Trent Dilfer in Week 2. That matchup likely will be on Saturday, Aug. 27, pending negotiations for a possible national television deal.

“It kind of happens naturally,” athletic director Vince Pitts said of scheduling the first two games. “It’s hard to find anyone who will play us. We always want to keep the great game of football in the state, but when people tell you no, sometimes you have to look outside the state. Coach (Mark) Freeman has a lot of great contacts and, between the two of us, we shook the bushes and found two great opportunities.”

Pitts said both games are two-year contracts. The Warriors have the option of returning to Georgia for the Freedom Bowl again in 2023 if they desire. They definitely will travel to Lipscomb in 2023.

“We really wanted something we could do for two years,” Pitts said. “We didn’t want to have to look for another bunch of opportunities next year as well.”

In addition to Buford and Lipscomb, Thompson will play reigning Class 6A champ Clay-Chalkville at home on Sept. 23 in another high-profile, non-region game. The Class 7A, Region 3 slate includes games against traditional title contenders Hewitt-Trussville (Sept. 30) and Hoover (Oct. 21).

The Freedom Bowl brings together six top high school football teams in the Southeast to compete in three games over three days at Milton High School. Pitts said he is hoping Thompson’s game against Buford will be played on Thursday, Aug. 18, but the matchups haven’t been formally announced yet.

Buford has won 14 state titles in Georgia, including the last three in a row. The Wolves defeated Langston Hughes 21-20 in 2021 to win the Class 6A title and finish the season 14-1 overall. Buford’s Bryant Appling became the first coach in GHSA history to win three state titles in his first three seasons as head coach.

Lipscomb, coached by former NFL QB Dilfer, defeated Christ Presbyterian Academy 27-0 in 2021 to win the Tennessee Division II-AA state championship. Dilfer’s team finished 13-1.

Freeman’s Thompson team is 39-2 over the last three years. The Warriors went 13-1 in 2021, losing only to rival Hoover in the regular-season finale. However, the Warriors avenged that loss with a 35-10 victory over the Bucs in the Class 7A state semifinals before going on to knock off Central-Phenix City 38-22 in the championship game.

Thompson’s roster is again loaded with top college prospects, including defensive back Tony Mitchell (No. 3 in the 247 composite rankings), defensive lineman Peter Woods (No. 5) and offensive tackle

A one-year break from the state championship is more than enough for Frederica Academy golf.

The Knights’ remarkable 13-year state title streak was snapped last season, but FA looks poised to begin a new one after winning the GISA Region 2-3A Tournament this past weekend in Statesboro.

Frederica Academy’s five of Jackson Byrd, Jack Roberts, Aarnav Nath, Roy Boyd and Ramie Singler shot a 291 at Forest Heights Country Club, beating out runner-up Bulloch Academy’s score of 317 by 26 strokes. Pinewood Christian rounded out the top 3 with a score of 337.

Boyd and Roberts paced the Knights early on with each making the turn at 3 under.

Boyd’s opening tee shot hit the trunk of a tree and ricocheted into the fairway, ad the senior captain quickly capitalized with a great par on No. 1. From there, Boyd was able to work his way around the front nine, giving himself plenty of birdie opportunities.

“His demeanor on the front was very relaxed and calm,” said Frederica head coach Kevin Roberts. “He was in good spirits, and he was having fun. You could easily see the joy in his face.”

Roberts, on the other hand, recorded bogeys on Nos. 2-3 to find himself up two strokes before going on a strong run over the final six holes of the frontside. The freshman standout sandwiched a pair of birdies around an even par hole leading into an eagle on No. 7. Following a par on No. 8, Jack Roberts birdied No. 9 to match Boyd for the team lead at the halfway point.

Byrd opened his round with a bomb off the tee to about 50 yards short of the green, and then he stuck his wedge to about a foot from the hole for a tap-in birdie to get him started in the right direction.

“He’s such a dynamic player,” Coach Roberts said. “His length and wedge game is a strength that allows him to go low at any point.”

But Byrd’s front nine after that point was a relative disappointment from another one of the Knights’ freshmen phenom. A missed birdie opportunity on No. 9 left Byrd at even par headed to the backside.

Nath and Shingler rounded out Frederica’s starting five, but each had some issues ironing out the consistency in their games early. Nath was five strokes over par through four holes before settling down to shoot par over the next five holes while Shingler found himself at 1 under through seven holes until a triple bogey on No. 8 and a bogey on No. 9 dropped him to 3 over at the turn.

The Knights continued to struggle on the backside of the course — Boyd had a triple bogey on No. 12, Byrd bogeyed No. 15, and Roberts had a string of bogeys as well. Frederica wasn’t in danger of losing the region, but its hopes of a school record were all but dashed.

“It’s not that I felt like we weren’t going to

David Beckham Manchester United 1999-2000

David Beckham is a Manchester United academy product, having signed as a trainee on July 8, 1991. He was part of the much-famed Class of 92 batch that includes the likes of Ryan Giggs, Garry Nevile, Phil Neville, Nicky Butt and Paul Scholes.

Notably, Beckham, Giggs, Butt and Gary Neville were part of Eric Harrison’s FA Youth Cup-winning team in 1992. In fact, Beckham scored United’s second goal in their first leg 3-1 win against Crystal Palace in the final. He had such an impact over both the legs that he made his first-team debut on September 23, 1992, as a substitute for Andrei Kanchelskis in a League Cup match against Brighton & Hove Albion.

However, Beckham had to wait till April 2, 1995 to make his Premier League debut with Manchester United. It was a goalless draw against Leeds United at the Old Trafford where the midfielder played the entire 90 minutes.

In the following season, Beckham established himself as one of the integral members of the Manchester United squad as a right-sided midfielder. He put in a series of impressive performances for the Red Devils in the league and fired them to the silverware.

In December 1995, United were 10 points behind leaders Newcastle United but by March 1996, they toppled the Tynesiders from the top spot and remained number one till the end of the season. He played 33 matches in that season, scored seven times and provided five assists.

In the beginning of the 1996-97 season, Beckham was given the number 10 shirt. On the opening day of the Premier League, he scored an outrageous 57-yard goal against Wimbledon that saw the ball float over the keeper’s head and into the net. With eight goals and seven assists, he helped United defend the league title and also won the PFA Young Player of the Year.

In the 1998-99 treble-winning season, United had to win the final match of the league against Tottenham. The London club took an early lead but Beckham equalised with a 12-yard curler that pierced the top-left corner of the goal. United went on to win the match 2-1 and Beckham was again in the thick of things.

The 2001-02 season was his most successful campaign in the Premier League. Although he made less than 30 appearances (28), due to a metatarsal injury in his left foot, he scored 11 goals and provided two assists. However, the next season was his last in England as he moved to real Madrid in the summer of 2003, after things went sour between him and manager Alex Ferguson.

Beckham made 265 league appearances for United and scored 61 goals and 74 assists. In nine seasons in England, he won the league six times.

The Umbrella Academy season 3 finally has an official release date, and the next installment of the hit Netflix show is arriving on the streamer in a matter of months. There’s also now a short teaser for the new season, which teases a face-off between the two sets of Hargreeves siblings (more on that later…). 

On top of that, we’ve got the lowdown on casting, from new faces to returning characters, as well as predicting when we might be able to expect a full-length trailer. Plus, Netflix has revealed the titles of all the episodes in the new season, which gives us some idea of where the plot may go, and we have some quotes from actors Tom Hopper and Robert Sheehan about what they’d like to see from their characters in the future. And that’s just the start of it – scroll on to find out everything we know so far about The Umbrella Academy season 3.

The Umbrella Academy season 3 is officially arriving on Netflix on June 22, 2022. All 10 episodes will release on the same day.

Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, and Justin H. Min are all confirmed to reprise their roles as the Hargreeves siblings, while Ritu Arya will return as Lila. Colm Feore is back as Reginald Hargreeves, too.

The Umbrella Academy season 2 ending also introduced the “Sparrow Academy”, a new group of superheroes formed by a still-alive Reginald in an alternative universe in which our heroes now live. Justin H. Min will play an alternate-universe version of his character Ben, alongside a host of new faces. 

Justin Cornwell will play Marcus, the leader of the Sparrows who keeps the family in check, while Britne Oldford is Fei, a lonely misanthrope who’s usually the smartest person in the room. Jake Epstein is Alphonso, armed with a biting sense of humor, and Genesis Rodriguez is romantic dreamer Sloane. Cazzie David will play Jayme, a loner who doesn’t speak much and whose only friend is Alphonso.

According to Netflix, the seventh Sparrow, Christopher, will be played by Existential Dread Inducing Psykronium Cube. Christopher is loyal, trustworthy, and can turn a room freezing cold and induce paralyzing fear – and, crucially, a large, telekinetic cube. While this may create more questions than it answers, at least we know why there was a giant cube at the end of season 2 now. 

Character posters of the Sparrows have also been unveiled, and you can check them out below. 

Euphoria star Javon Walton also revealed to Complex (opens in new tab) that he has a part in The Umbrella Academy season 3, but gave away no further details.

Gone are the old ways of covenant systems in previous FromSoftware titles. Near-forced PvP-based content or extensive item farming are things of the past. In Elden Ring, players have the opportunity to join or associate with different groups that are essentially hybrids between the Dark Souls covenants and standard NPC questlines.

When players encounter these groups or entities, it can impact and influence their playthrough in different ways. This could involve eventually receiving a unique weapon or armor set to an alternative game ending.

Naturally, it can be concerning for players that don’t want to drastically change the way their character is progressing in the Lands Between. In Elden Ring, the Tarnished’s choices are important and have an impact on the world in that particular playthrough. One of these groups or entities that players are trying to better understand is the Volcano Manor.

Volcano Manor

The Volcano Manor is one of the main legacy dungeons in Elden Ring. Players can access this area at the top of Mount Gelmir next to the Altus Plateau.

Upon entering the manor, players will speak with Lady Tanith. Tanith is the head of the Volcano Manor. Eventually, she will ask the player if they wish to serve the manor and team up against the Fingers, which will start a player-hunting questline. This will also continue questlines from Patches, Rya, and Bernahl. These three NPCs are found in different areas of the Lands Between before arriving at the manor.

Agreeing to serve Volcano Manor

Those who wish to serve Volcano Manor will be able to progress different questlines with various rewards. Lady Tanith’s story falls in line with Bernahl’s questline in that they both involve hunting down other Tarnished. In this assassination-based questline, players will travel around the Lands Between and invade the worlds of other Tarnished characters. But they’re NPCs and not players.

When players pledge allegiance to the manor, Lady Tanith will give them the Drawing Room Key. From here, there are a couple of options to progress through the legacy dungeon.

The first involves continuing, and eventually finishing, Lady Tanith’s questline. When players have completed all of Tanith’s assassinations, she will offer to take the player to meet the Lord of the Manor, Rykard. This is a shard-bearing boss at the end of the dungeon.

The other option is progressing through the dungeon without participating in the questline. Two rooms are unlocked with the Drawing Room Key. One is a bigger room with a few NPCs in it. The other room is at first empty, but upon further thorough inspection, players will find an illusory wall that will lead deeper into the lava-filled manor. As players progress through this multilevel dungeon, they will eventually dead-end at a portal that will take them to the area where Rykard is found.

Not serving the manor

Players who do not want to serve Volcano Manor must find a different way to reach the end of the dungeon. It is possible to enter

Former Georgia Southern All-American Steven Fisk will be teeing it up beginning Thursday as the PGA’s Korn Ferry Tour makes a stop in Savannah for the Club Car Championship at The Landings Deer Creek golf course Thursday through Sunday. 

The Landings is a place that has good memories for Fisk as he earned partial status on the Korn Ferry Tour after placing 19th in October at the Korn Ferry Tour’s Q-school event held at the Marshwood golf course.  

Fisk has played in seven events on the Korn Ferry Tour, and this will be the last of his eight exemptions which he earned with his top-20 finish in October. Fisk says it has been an eye-opening experience traveling to places like Panama and the Bahamas to play on the tour and is hopeful that run will continue. 

“Having played in some international events the travel has been really different for me,” said Fisk. “It’s a much bigger production than what I have been used to but at the end of the day it is still golf and you have to focus on your game and improve.” 

Fisk has struggled a bit on the tour so far but is hopeful that familiar surroundings will help kick his game back into gear. 

“Coming back to my home state on turf I’m a little more familiar with should help me,” said Fisk. “Georgia Southern has a campus just down the road and hopefully some people will be able to make it out so hopefully there will be some Eagles out there.” 

Fisk feels his game is starting to turn around and is feeling much more comfortable on the tour. He feels he belongs, and having earned his way into playing these events is ready to see of the hard work he’s been putting in pays off this week. 

When Fisk last played at The Landings he had former teammate Jake Maples on his bag. Since then, he has hired a caddie named Bryan Beasley who brings a wealth of knowledge having been a caddie on the Korn Ferry Tour for years. 

“I felt like I needed someone with course knowledge and Bryan definitely has that,” said Fisk. “Almost all the courses on the tour are new to me and Bryan has been out here for several years caddying for different players. He has been able to help show me the ropes and provide a little extra detail that can be the difference in a shot or two here or there.” 

Fisk was disappointed he couldn’t come to Statesboro for this year’s Schenkel Invitational but kept up with it and was proud of the team claiming their third title. 

“I was in Louisiana but I wish I could have gone,” said Fisk. “I was updating the leaderboard as much as I could and following Ben Carr and Mason Williams as they were both near the top. I was hoping somehow the two of them would tie and there wouldn’t be a playoff. They played really
