“His is the feel good story, because he wasn ever a superstar or really recruited or anything,” Ironside said. “He made his way. We didn have a whole lot to do with it. DIEGO OQUENDO: Named an Advance All Star as a defensive back in 2002 and for his all purpose play in 2003, the same season he won the Fugazzi Award after spearheading the Pirates to their second city title. Oquendo showed signs of his versatility as a junior with his special teams play, but the Junior Heisman winner and team MVP truly emerged as a senior when he scored touchdowns four different ways, finding the end zone 15 times in all. In the 2003 city championship victory over Canarsie, he caught 5 passes for 101 yards and two TDs; blocked a punt and returned it for a score; blocked an extra point; made a TD saving tackle and deflected a critical pass late in the game.
At the very least, “Concussion” will continue to prompt more conversations/debates such as the ones I’m guessing took place at many holiday gatherings since its release on Christmas Day. At the very most, it will cause some parents to do the very thing that is at the heart of one of the most powerful scenes of the movie: an exchange between the Pittsburgh pathologist (Dr. Bennet Omalu, brilliantly portrayed by Will Smith) whose findings triggered the controversy, and Steelers neurosurgeon Joseph Maroon (played by Arliss Howard)..
Bill Haslam, who has known Corker since he was a teenager.Corker, 65, did, in fact, back down from a potentially serious primary fight last month when he announced he would not run for re election, though he insisted he did so from a position of strength. “on the path to World War III.”Trump hit back at Corker as a “lightweight” and charged that the former Chattanooga mayor and two term senator “couldn’t get elected dog catcher in Tennessee.” Trump insultingly dubbed him “Liddle Bob Corker.”Jokes about Corker’s diminutive stature he lists his height as 5 foot 7 are hardly going to get a rise out of someone who has been hearing them at least since the former construction company owner first ran for the Senate in 1994.That crowded primary was ultimately won by Bill Frist, a Nashville physician whose campaign labeled Corker a “desperate little man,” ”the Chattanooga boo hoo” and “rotten pond scum.” Much of that vitriol stemmed from Corker’s pointing out Frist’s spotty voting record and calling him a cat killer for adopting felines and using them for experiments while he was a medical student.Corker was next appointed state finance commissioner, where he broke with others in the GOP administration by supporting an ultimately successful effort by then Nashville Mayor Phil Bredesen, a Democrat, to bring the NFL’s Houston Oilers to Tennessee. Bredesen was later elected governor and is now mulling a bid to succeed Corker in the Senate.Bredesen, in announcing his interest in the race, lauded Corker’s service despite some differences over policy.”I have long admired the way in which he puts the interests of Tennesseans and our nation ahead of political gamesmanship,” Bredesen said.
