Trojans make an impression on Pro Day

first_imgMarshall maintained that swagger during interviews, stating his goal was to be the best, and he wasn’t going to stop working until he got there. Marshall said he was excited for the opportunity to play with the best. “You play this game to be a competitor,” he said. “If you’re not a competitor, why are you playing?” Departing football players took Cromwell Field Wednesday morning for USC’s Pro Day to demonstrate their talent to NFL scouts. The event had a unique participant, blind long snapper Jake Olson, who put on quite a show with 17 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press to raise money for cancer research. Smith also had a solid day. He considers himself someone who can quarterback a defense and is generally seen as a more cerebral player. While Smith was not “happy” with his performance, he said he was “content,” as he felt he proved his athleticism enough to allow his fundamentals and football IQ to shine through. Gustin said that scouts are concerned with his injury history, but he seemed confident that he is not “injury prone” and is instead the unfortunate recipient of “freak injuries” that have all been solely bone-related. Gustin, while lacking that agile bend that pass rushers need to turn the edge and rack up sacks, is projected to be a stout edge run defender who can muscle his way to a few sacks in the NFL. Linebacker Porter Gustin had 7.5 sacks in six games in 2018, which encourages the idea that he has the potential to be a contributor at the next level — if he can stay healthy. (Josh Dunst/Daily Trojan) A tackling machine for the Trojans for four years, Smith used Pro Day to showcase his knowledge of the game off the field in interviews with team officials. Smith is considered a mid-round talent but could be a solid contributor despite his pedestrian athleticism due to his leadership on the field and in the locker room. Some Trojans who attended the NFL Scouting Combine a few weeks ago had the chance to demonstrate their abilities to scouts from more teams. For defensive backs Marvell Tell and Iman Marshall, linebackers Porter Gustin and Cam Smith and offensive lineman Chuma Edoga, Pro Day was an opportunity to play on home turf without the immense mental strain of the combine and to receive more personalized evaluations from team officials. Tell showed his strengths well in the field drills, demonstrating a particular burst in the ‘W’ drill. Teams are considering switching the 6-foot-2 Tell to cornerback, where his athleticism can be fully displayed. Throughout the season, Tell was a leader of USC’s defense and developed press coverage skills visible at Pro Day that will transition well to the league. In addition to a great day on the field that demonstrated his versatility, Marshall gave teams a chance to get to know his personality. As a tough press man corner at 6-foot-1, Marshall often acts as a bully, matching up with bigger receivers and maintaining a high level of physicality. Marshall was nimble for his size in the drills and already proved his speed at the combine. Teams have been evaluating him as a safety, and he said he felt his athleticism and knowledge showed scouts that he could play the position at the next level. Coming off an ankle injury that derailed his senior season, Gustin struggled at the combine in the field workouts, although he impressed in the 40-yard dash and measurables. Equal parts WWE wrestler and hulking Rambo, Gustin is a far cry from the modern day edge-rushing linebackers who run blazing sub-4.5 40 times. No one expects Gustin to be buttery smooth on the field; however, he certainly showed passable fluidity to pair with his immense power in the field drills. Best known for the quickness he showed at the combine, Edoga did not look quite as strong at Pro Day. His heavier physique may have teams questioning his strength in pass protection, though he looks to be a solid run blocker in the league. Pro Day is also an opportunity for lesser known prospects to gain traction and meet with team officials. Running back Aca’Cedric Ware looked explosive coming out of near 90-degree cuts and ran good routes. He did not drop a single pass and looked more fluid than expected coming out of his breaks in the pass game.last_img read more

Germany Tackle Chile in Confed Cup Final

first_imgThe final showdown of the Russia 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup will take place sunday evening as world Champion Germany take on South American champion Chile in St. Petersburg, Russia. However, before the mouth-watering showdown, the third place play off between Portugal and Mexico will whet fans’ appetiteThe final is the second meeting between the two countries in the competition after they first clashed in the group stage. Germany will be looking to win their first Confederations Cup title with Chile also eyeing the title at the first attempt. Both teams played out a 1-1 draw in the group stage of the tournament when Lars Stindl equalised for the Germans after Alexis Sanchez had put the South Americans ahead.Germany leads the very limited head to head between the two with one win and a draw. Prior to the draw in the group stage, they had met in just one friendly match before, which Germany won 1-0 back in 2014.Germany romped to a 4-1 win over Mexico in their semifinal clash, taking their tally to ten goals in four games in the tournament so far. They clearly have the firepower with Lars Stindl and Timo Werner as good options and Leon Goretzka raising his stock with a quick brace against the Mexicans as well. They have a very exciting and fluid young attack with manager Joachim Low electing to leave most of the squad that won the 2014 World Cup at home.Chile on the other had an exhausting semifinal encounter with Portugal, having to win by penalties after a goalless encounter against Portugal.Chile’s Arturo Vidal, Aranguiz and Arsenal star, Sanchez converted their penalty kicks past Portugal’s goalkeeper Ruis Patricio, while the European champions failed to convert any of theirs.Portugal will face Mexico in the third place play-off. Again, it is the second time both teams will be playting each other in the competition after the first game ended in a 2-2 draw. However Portugal will have to make do without captain Cristiano Ronaldo as he Real Madrid star was excused from the squad, returning home to meet his newborn twins.The 32-year-old, who already has a seven-year-old son, Cristiano Ronaldo Jnr, from a previous relationship, is believed to have fathered the twins with a surrogate mother in the United States.“We knew he was having family matters at home,” Portugal manager Fernando Santos told a news conference yesterday.”Obviously it was an important moment in his life to have these children, whom he hasn’t seen yet. And as we failed to reach the final here the president of our football federation and me decided that it will be a nice gesture to give him a chance to be with his family.”Portugal are often accused of relying heavily on Ronaldo, but they claimed their first major title without their injured talisman when they beat France 1-0 after extra-time in last year’s Euro 2016 final.Borussia Dortmund’s Raphael Guerreiro is also missing for Portugal through injury, but veteran defender Pepe returns after he was suspended for the Chile clash.“It will be a game with the same commitment, with the same willingness to win from both sides, I believe,” said Santos. “None of us wanted to play this game as our main goal was to reach the final. But as we failed to get that result we have to be motivated for Sunday’s encounter.“We have the same objective as we have had in the last two and a half years – to play for the win in every game.”Mexico are appearing at their seventh Confederations Cup and are hoping to restore their pride after Thursday’s 4-1 semifinal defeat against world champions Germany. Mexico, who won the tournament in 1999, have fallen behind in each of their four matches in Russia but will welcome back captain Andres Guardado, who was banned for the Germany game.Pay TV channel, StarTimes will beam both matches live subscribers.

The Clippers’ do-everything wing (27.1 ppg, 7.1 rbp, 4.9 apg this season) is a two-time NBA Finals MVP who carried the Toronto Raptors to their first title last season, averaging 30.5 points, 9.1 rebounds and 3.9 assists during a monumental playoff run. Patrick Beverley (7.9 ppg, 5.2 rbp, 3.6 apg) is more than a defensive pest; he’s also a marksman from deep, shooting 53.3% from deep in 11 games after the All-Star break … For Dallas, wunderkind Luka Doncic, the Mavericks’ flashy second-year point guard, is a gamer, recording a league-best 17 triple-doubles. But he’ll have his hands full against the Clippers, against whom he’s averaged 29 points, seven assists and five turnovers per game — compared with his season averages of 28.8 points, 8.8 assists and 4.3 giveaways. And Doc Rivers wouldn’t say who his daughter Callie will be rooting for, but he suggested it might be her husband, Seth Curry, the Mavericks’ starting shooting guard, who’s averaging 12.4 points per game. EDGE: ClippersSTARTING FRONTCOURTLed by six-time All-Star Paul George (21.5 ppg, 5.7 rpg, 3.9 apg) on the wing, the Clippers frontcourt is dynamic on both ends. Marcus Morris Sr. (16.7 ppg, 5.0 rpg) arrived at the trade deadline, forsaking a scoring role in New York for an opportunity to do the little things in LA. And Ivica Zubac, the 7-foot center in his fourth NBA season, is averaging 10.6 points 10.3 rebounds and shooting 69.4% from the field in the bubble — partly because he made all 10 of his attempts while feasting on the Mavericks in a victory Aug. 6. The Mavs feature a nontraditional center — a Unicorn, some might say. The 7-foot-3 Kristaps Porziņģis (20.4 ppg, 9.5 apg) is a deep threat, shooting 35.2% on 3-pointers, of which he’s taken more than seven per game this season. He’s also found his stride in the bubble, where he’s been averaging 30.5 points and 9.5 rebounds per game. EDGE: ClippersBENCHESLed by two-time reigning Sixth Man of the Year Lou Williams (18.2 ppg) and fellow Sixth Man of the Year finalist Montrezl Harrell (18.6 ppg), the Clippers again led the NBA in bench scoring. Forward JaMychal Green — whose 3-point shooting prowess helped make the Clippers’ first-round series against the Warriors interesting last season — is shooting 52.9% from 3-point range in the bubble. Dallas’ bench accounts for 38.4 points per game — 6.6 of them coming from former Clippers favorite Boban Marjanovic. EDGE: CLIPPERSCOACHESDoc Rivers is a championship coach (Boston Celtics, 2008-09). So is Rick Carlisle (Dallas, 2011). Rivers moved into 11th all-time in regular season coaching victories in the bubble, with 943. Carlisle ranks high on that list, too, with 794, the 16th most. Asked this week about Carlisle, Rivers said, “Usually comes down to at the end of the day the players you have.” EDGE: CLIPPERSINTANGIBLESThe Clippers arrived in Florida in pursuit of the team’s first title and hoping to build their connectivity and continuity, but they’ve not had the opportunity as players have been in and out of the lineup — and in and out of the bubble. They’ll have to rely on their veteran savvy — and Leonard’s twice-championship will — as they try to find their playoff rhythm. On the other side, Luka Doncic has a flair for the dramatic, becoming, at 21, the youngest player to lead the league in triple-doubles, including two that were 40-point triple-doubles and 12 that were 30-point triple-doubles. EDGE: CLIPPERSSERIES PREDICTIONWith no real home-court advantage, and no great rhythm entering play, the Clippers will be hard-pressed to dispatch of Dallas without any hiccups, despite having the deeper roster and having beaten the Mavericks in all three meetings this season.
