Despite a season-ending injury, Hahnville QB remains a leader for his team https://nyrenegades.com/despite-a-season-ending-injury-hahnville-qb-remains-a-leader-for-his-team/ Wed, 28 Sep 2022 00:18:16 +0000 https://nyrenegades.com/despite-a-season-ending-injury-hahnville-qb-remains-a-leader-for-his-team/ Hahnville’s Donovan Friloux returns to pass in the 2021 season opener against Destrehan.

Hahnville’s Donovan Friloux returns to pass in the 2021 season opener against Destrehan.

When the Hahnville football team scored their first win of the 2022 season, a dramatic 42-41 overtime win over Mandeville, no one was prouder than Donovan Friloux.

The senior quarterback entered the season as the centerpiece of a talented and experienced Tigers offense. This attack was as advertised against Mandeville, but with a change in one specific detail: Friloux didn’t take a picture that night, nor was he dressed to play.

Instead, the senior season he had dreamed of since he was young and the chance to be Hahnville quarterback at the peak of his prep athletic ability were scrapped before the start of the regular season. Friloux suffered a season-ending knee injury against Jesuit in the pre-season jamboree, tearing both his ACL and MCL and spelling the end of his football career at Hahnville.

“It was definitely a big dream for me…always, when I was young,” Friloux said of the Tigers quarterback. “I used to play tackling football when I was young, I always thought about reaching high school and playing. I would come to watch Hahnville play as a kid, watch the exceptional talent play there right before my eyes and I knew, “I want to be that guy.” Even in college, looking at Pooka Williams and thinking, ‘Wow, he’s amazing.’ »

Friloux actually had to do this in Hahnville for a while. As a junior, he started all nine games for the Tigers and helped lead his team to the Class 5A playoffs. The playoff push included a six-game winning streak to close out the regular season after an 0-2 first hole.

The second year was supposed to be his chance to build on that experience – “Everyone’s first year is tough. The second year? You have a little more chemistry with each other,” he said.

But against the Jesuit, he made a cut while running and immediately realized something was wrong.

“I heard it pop,” Friloux said of his knee. “From what everyone said, I knew what had happened. For me, I was trying to elevate myself and trying to think about the best case scenario, not the worst case scenario. But yes, I knew what had happened. I could see it in people’s faces.

He underwent a knee MRI and the results were confirmed. The season he had dreamed of for so long would never happen.

Despite that, he wouldn’t sulk.

“He came right after and spoke to his teammates, and the message was clear,” said Hahnville head football coach Daniel Luquet. “He said this season wasn’t over. The expectations are the same. Make the playoffs, make a run… It was important for him to be with his guys, to help (back-up quarterback Ryan Gregson) learn the ways. Donovan is still the leader of this team, no matter what cards have been dealt to him. He’s going to perform as best he can, and I’m very proud of him.

Friloux said his first instinct after hearing the bad news about his knee was to find a way to help his teammates.

“My first words after the MRI were ‘How can I help the team?’ I knew I couldn’t be on the pitch. But ever since I was in high school, all my time has been spent on that football field or baseball field. That’s what I know, and that’s my way of dealing with any issues that I might have and things like that. So that’s how can I raise my teammates, because I love them to death,” Friloux said.

“I told them, I ride or I die behind you all. I said to Gregson, there’s no one on this planet I’d rather see take my place but you… it’s football. You are going to go through a lot of adversity. You will and it will be better.

The Week 3 game between Hahnville and Northshore, a 17-10 Tigers win, was the season opener. Friloux wasn’t with the squad – he had knee surgery last week and was at home recovering. He said the game against Mandeville will also be the last he is not with the team, as he will be back on the sidelines. On Friday night, he returned alongside his teammates as the Tigers took on Destrehan.

The surgery was a success – he said his repaired knee would be even stronger than the uninjured one when recovered, and he should be ready to return to athletics in about six months.

“I already feel better like this,” said Friloux.

And while that won’t make him capable of playing football again at Tiger Stadium, Friloux’s refusal to bend in the face of his personal setback and turn adversity into an opportunity to help his team ensured his senior season will never be wasted. – perhaps even setting the kind of positive example that can inspire others within the Tiger program and have a lasting impact for years to come.

“They’re not down on themselves and they don’t ask these ‘what if’ type questions,” Friloux said. “We can continue. We can play football. My teammates are like me. They love soccer. »

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — A sturdy pair of eyeglasses was mandatory attire Sunday at the Cleveland clubhouse, where impromptu showers of champagne and beer erupted in a thick haze of cigar smoke.

The Guardians, baseball’s youngest team, have completed an unexpected run to the top of AL Central.

Rookie Steven Kwan hit a grand slam and had a season-high five points as the Guardians won a division championship no one thought possible six months ago with a 10-4 victory over the Texas Rangers.

When receiver Luke Maile pressed a foul on Josh Smith for the final, the Guardians began celebrating a title that became official 15 minutes earlier after second-placed Chicago lost to the Detroit Tigers.

Tied for first on Sept. 4, the Guardians have won seven straight and pulled off 18 wins in 21 games to open a 10-game lead and run away with the division.

“This team is good. We are not only young. We’re pretty good.” said starter Cal Quantrill, the club leader with 14 wins. “I don’t think anyone is thrilled to play us right now. We’re playing our best baseball. We’re playing baseball the right way.

It’s Cleveland’s 11th central title since the division’s inception in 1994 and its fourth in 10 years under Terry Francona, who has battled health issues the past two seasons but enjoyed this race with a team that may have surprised at first but is now seen. as a legitimate threat to the World Series.

“For what our guys have done, and when you do it with people you really care about, love and respect, it means a lot,” Francona said before her statement was cut off by a chilling sprinkling.

“I’m amazed by these guys,” said Chris Antonetti, president of baseball operations for the team. “They came together and played the game the right way.”

This season was not supposed to happen.

After dropping the Indians as a nickname after the 2021 season, a decision that upset a significant portion of Cleveland’s fan base, the Guardians have done little to improve their roster in free agency as the front office decided that 2022 would be all about seeing what he had.

In the end, the Cleveland kids were more than fine.

Perhaps none more so than Kwan, a 25-year-old player with a game well beyond his years. He made the roster in spring training and was the Guardians’ first pesky hitter since Opening Day, working pitchers into deep counts before hitting shots and becoming a nuisance on the pitches. base paths.

It was fitting that it was Kwan who led the way in Sunday’s clinch.

“Help any team I was on, be it Triple-A or the Majors,” Kwan spoke about his goals this season. “I think it helped me in college, travel ball, whatever. I know that if I focus on helping the team and others, then everything will fall into place.

Kwan’s slam in the eighth inning barely went over the wall and bounced into play. He wasn’t sure until first base umpire Bruce Dreckman pointed it out. He said his reaction was “Blackout.”

With bigger games to come, Kwan wasn’t ready to reflect on what he and his teammates have accomplished.

“I really want to keep my head down, keep rolling.” he said. “Maybe in a superstitious way, I don’t want to turn away from anything. Keep it up.”

The Guardians defied odds early on and became the first team to win a division with at least 16 rookies making their major league debut.

The season started with low expectations everywhere but inside the Cleveland clubhouse. It may have been naivety, but the Guardians thought they could be special and that’s exactly what happened.

“Since day one they have come together”, Antonetti said. “You go around the clubhouse, the tone that our veteran players set like Jose Ramírez, Amed Rosario, Shane Bieber, Austin Hedges. ‘Tito’ (Francona) said just find a way to help the team win.

“They embraced that mentality.”

The Guardians did it with an offense that puts the ball in play, a solid and often spectacular defense and a bullpen extinguished by the closest Emmanuel Clase (39 saves, the best in the league).

Cleveland hits less than any team in the majors and no one goes from first to third better.

Amid the clubhouse chaos, Antonetti was keen to credit 63-year-old Francona, who won two World Series with Boston and had perhaps his best season ever after facing serious medical issues.

“To think about what he personally overcame to get to this point,” Antonetti said. “This is a special moment for ‘Tito’.”

NEXT

Guardians: Bieber (12-8, 2.81 ERA) will open a three-game series Tuesday at home against Tampa Bay in a possible first-round playoff preview. Bieber will face RHP Corey Kluber (10-9, 4.30), a two-time Cy Young winner for nine seasons in Cleveland.

Rangers: Play three games in Seattle starting Tuesday. Texas has not announced a starter for the opener against LHP Robbie Ray (12-10, 3.60).

In Aaron Judge vs. Shohei Ohtani debate, team record proves a worthy tiebreaker https://nyrenegades.com/in-aaron-judge-vs-shohei-ohtani-debate-team-record-proves-a-worthy-tiebreaker/ Sat, 24 Sep 2022 05:24:30 +0000 https://nyrenegades.com/in-aaron-judge-vs-shohei-ohtani-debate-team-record-proves-a-worthy-tiebreaker/ The 30 members of the Baseball Writers Association of America with votes to decide the AL MVP award have a wonderful decision to make.

The 30 members of the Baseball Writers Association of America with votes to decide the AL MVP award have a wonderful decision to make.

They have the mighty Aaron Judge who carried the New York Yankees through much of this team’s slumping summer. He entered this weekend with 60 homers and the chance to win the AL Triple Crown.

It would be the first major leaguers since Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera in 2012 – who is the only one in 55 years since Carl Yastrzemski won the batting, home run and RBI titles for Boston in 1967.

The competition is Shohei Ohtani, the incredible combination of punching and throwing power for the Los Angeles Angels.

Ohtani was voted MVP in 2021, when there were no other candidates in the same universe, and his performance both ways has been better this season.

What’s amazing from here is that Judge, as an outfielder, and Ohtani, as a combination starting pitcher (starting No. 26 Friday against the Twins) and designated hitter, were playing their 146th games on Friday. evening.

How Ohtani can handle it physically, throwing and DHing when he starts, and DHing in everyone else, should blow baseball watchers away.

In addition, he is the fastest batter to go from home plate to first base in the American League.

And yet, if I had to vote, it would be up to the judge. The word “precious” is in the title for a reason for these baseball writers’ awards for both leagues dating back to 1931.

Your team doesn’t need to win a pennant to claim the prize, but when two candidates are as strong as these in the AL in 2022, the fact that the Yankees have 30 games above .500 and that the Angels have 20 fewer games should be allowed. to sway the debate.

And, “Yeah, but it’s the Yankees” doesn’t work as a counter argument, as they’ve dealt with a lot of injuries and long stretches where Judge was surrounded by a lot of outs.

I can see voters who will side with Ohtani due to the unique and demanding nature of his talent, but again, it’s not ‘Player of the Year’…it’s the most valuable.

If Judge were to lose in an upset, it wouldn’t be because Ted Williams was stripped of three MVPs in the 1940s – and twice as the winner of the Triple Crown.

Williams was an outspoken man in expressing his disrespect for sportswriters and those gentlemen – essentially, an all-male profession at the time – were vindictive.

He hit .406 in 1941, and he happened to be the last major league batter to hit .400. Joe DiMaggio of the Yankees had his record 56-game hitting streak that season. The 24 voters gave DiMaggio 291 points to Williams’ 254, even with Ted’s top numbers.

Williams won the Triple Crown in 1942, but he lost MVP to Yankees second baseman Joe Gordon, 270 to 249. Williams’ monstrous numbers in all categories eclipsed Gordon, but the Yankees won the pennant and sportswriters apparently had no hesitation in stealing Teddy. Ballgame in consecutive years.

The worst came in 1947, when Williams again won the Triple Crown, but lost to DiMaggio by a total of 202 votes to 201. Williams was left out one round of voting, back when the ballots were not publicly revealed.

Williams participated in the writing of a book in which he identified a Boston sportswriter with whom he had an argument as having voted him out of the ballot. Later research indicated that the writer did not have one of Boston’s three votes, and that the ballot on which Williams was absent came from “the West” (Chicago or St. Louis).

Teddy Ballgame won MVP awards in 1946 and 1949. But it could have been so much more in the 1940s. And with three more seasons (1943-45) missed as a Marine fighter pilot in World War II, it would have been a tough decade to beat in baseball history.

Yurachek: The team is getting closer to the ‘level we all want’ https://nyrenegades.com/yurachek-the-team-is-getting-closer-to-the-level-we-all-want/ Tue, 20 Sep 2022 20:22:13 +0000 https://nyrenegades.com/yurachek-the-team-is-getting-closer-to-the-level-we-all-want/ LITTLE ROCK – Hunter Yurachek knew from the start that his priority as athletic director at the University of Arkansas was to help produce a successful football program. “Obviously your football program is the flagship program for your athletics department in the Southeastern Conference, and we want to bring that football program to the level […]]]>

LITTLE ROCK – Hunter Yurachek knew from the start that his priority as athletic director at the University of Arkansas was to help produce a successful football program.

“Obviously your football program is the flagship program for your athletics department in the Southeastern Conference, and we want to bring that football program to the level that we all want it to be statewide. , and we’re getting closer,” Yurachek said half an hour before addressing the lunch crowd at the Little Rock Touchdown Club at the DoubleTree Hotel in downtown Little Rock on Monday. “We’re not where we want to be, but we’ve had a lot of success.

“That’s obviously the biggest part. Seventy-five percent of our revenue comes from the football program, so the more successful the football program, the better.

Yurachek was hired in early December 2017. His first major football move came when he appointed Chad Morris as the school’s new football coach. The significant announcements No. 1 and 2 came after he fired Morris and hired current Razorbacks coach Sam Pittman.

Morris’ teams finished the 2018 and 2019 seasons at 2-10. He was fired the day after Arkansas lost 45-19 to Conference USA Western Kentucky with two games left on the schedule. Pittman was hired on December 8, 2019, and Arkansas was ranked No. 8 by the Associated Press in his second season.

After a covid-shortened 2020 season full of thrillers that still led to a 3-7 finish, Arkansas ended 2021 ranked No. 22 by the Associated Press with a 9-4 record after a 24- 10 from the Outback Bowl on Penn State.

Three games into the 2022 season, the Razorbacks are 3-0 under Pittman and are ranked No. 10.

“Sometimes when you hire coaches you succeed, and sometimes you don’t,” Touchdown Club emcee David Bazzel said. “The hires he’s had, he’s been right, and then he’s managed to bring a great culture between the coaches there.

“Sometimes you have to be a little lucky. If your first choice doesn’t work, [that’s OK if your] the second choice is the correct one. He gets it. I think he gets the culture here.

To start this season, Arkansas beat Cincinnati, South Carolina and Missouri State, coached by controversial former Arkansas head coach Bobby Petrino. On Saturday night, Arkansas bounced back from a 17-0 first half deficit to defeat Missouri State 31-24.

On Monday, Yurachek caused laughter in the banquet hall with a tongue-in-cheek comment.

“I was never worried on Saturday,” he said. “We had them where we wanted them. I thought I was fumbling on the 1 meter line [was] a great strategy from the start.

Arkansas will face Texas A&M on Saturday in Arlington, Texas, followed by Alabama with a 2:30 p.m. start in Fayetteville on Oct. 1. The Aggies and Crimson Tide are ranked No. 23 and No. 2, respectively.

“If you have an undefeated Alabama coming in an undefeated Arkansas, both top 10 teams, we’ll have an atmosphere like we haven’t seen in my tenure, and I don’t know the last time we would have seen that,” Yurachek said.

The Arkansas football team was ranked in successive seasons for the first time since 2015 and 2016, and by at least one measure, the Razorbacks’ success in the three major men’s sports during the school year 2021-22 was unique among NCAA Division I programs. . Arkansas Athletics was the only team to win a bowling game and qualify teams for the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament and the College World Series.

Yurachek said he was aware of a similar, but not identical, circumstance when the Arkansas football team won the 1978 Orange Bowl and finished the season ranked third, men’s basketball s qualified for the Final Four and the baseball team finished second. 1979 World University Series.

After Bazzel said that particular circumstance happened more than 40 years ago, Yurachek said Arkansas fans should still expect occasional, but not as prolonged, lulls.

“We could have a dip,” Yurachek said. “We may have to wait four months for it to come back. We don’t wait 40 years.

Bazzel said he thinks Arkansas has the right person in place.

“He’s a nice guy,” he said. “He’s a sharp guy. Obviously when you advance to that level you have good intelligence, but you also have to have likability, and he gets that. He engages with all the players. The AD of that era has to be able to do social media, which he does. He has to be able to relate to the athletes. He ticks all the boxes.”

Last night’s shot from utility player Jeff McNeil marked the New York Mets’ 100th shot from the season. Undeniably, this had angered the team manager. As it was not a record the Mets would want to be close with.

The combined HBP hit total of the top 5 Mets players is over 80. Jeff’s hit last night was his tenthand he’s also a top 5 player tied for fifth with shortstop Francisco Lindor.

Manchester, NH – Friday night’s game between New Hampshire and Harrisburg was tied three times, and the good guys pulled out to win in front of their home crowd at Delta Dental Stadium. The Fisher Cats (26-41, 57-79) scored late to claim a 5-4 victory over the Senators (Washington Nationals, 22-44, 52-83) in their penultimate game of the 2022 season .

The win was a total team effort. Eight of the nine players on the roster had hits. The pitchers had bright spots and there were no errors.

Tied 3-3 in the seventh inning, New Hampshire scored a pair of runs over the next two frames. Zac Cook smoked a solo homer, his 15th of the season, over the right field wall. In the eighth, Luis De Los Santos doubled up and Addison Barger singled it home for what turned out to be the winning run.

But New Hampshire also had big hits in big spots for most of the night. Late in the second set, Sebastian Espino smashed a wall-scratching double into the deepest part of the stadium, scoring Phil Clarke to tie the game, 1-1.

Harrisburg went up 2-1 in the third, but Orelvis Martinez tied the game with a swing in the bottom half of the fourth. He took the first pitch from Senators starter Jake Irvin to the left-field seats in front of the Sam Adams Brewhouse.

The home run was Martinez’s 30th of the season. He is the first Fisher Cat to reach that mark and the 14th player in all minor league baseball with 30 or more dingers this season. The 20-year-old is ranked No. 3 among Toronto system prospects.

In the sixth, De Los Santos and Barger reached base with a single and a double, respectively. Clarke kicked off with a groundout, and the Fisher Cats took their first lead, 3-2. The duo of De Los Santos and Barger was a combined 4 for 8 with two runs, two doubles and an RBI.

Starter Paxton Schultz was terrific, making his second quality start of the season. He went 6.0 innings and allowed five hits and two earned runs, including one on a solo homer. Schultz walked two and struck out six. He finishes the 2022 season with a 4.04 ERA and a 7-6 record.

The Senators squandered Schultz’s chance for victory with a run in the top of the seventh, but New Hampshire responded with the crucial two runs. Harrisburg scored in the top of the ninth, but Jimmy Burnette finished the game with a one-out save, eliminating Nationals No. 1 prospect Robert Hassell III.

After a tough game in which starter David Peterson could only register one out, the New York Mets lost 6-3 to the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday and earned their first three-game sweep of the season.

Just when they need wins the most, the Mets come out and lose three straight to a team with no playoff hopes.

That’s baseball: it happens sometimes, even to the best teams.

The Mets are trying to hold off the Atlanta Braves and St. Louis Cardinals in the standings: The former plays in the same division, but the latter leads NL Central and could earn a first-round playoff bye. they finish with a better record than the two NL East foes.

A three-way race for the first round

At the moment, the Mets are half a game ahead of the Braves and 4.5 games over the Cards.

Anything can happen: The Los Angeles Dodgers are likely tagged for one of the byes.

The other will likely result from the three-way race between the Mets, Braves and Cards.

The Mets, losers of six of their last 10 games, must start winning again or they risk having to play in the Wild Card series of the playoffs.

“Buck Showalter: ‘He’s here for us. Everything is there for us. We control it. It would be frustrating if we didn’t. It’s the old thing we’ve been talking about all year. It’s called ‘Play Better,'” Mets insider Anthony DiComo tweeted after a chat with the skipper.

The Mets will now play a series with another mediocre team, the Pittsburgh Pirates.

They need to secure the win to stop the bleeding and position themselves well for the stretch race.

MIAMI (AP) — JT Realmuto homered twice against his former team, Bryce Harper also went deep and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Miami Marlins 6-1 on Wednesday night.

Philadelphia holds the NL’s second wildcard spot by 2½ games after third place San Diego lost earlier to Seattle.

Kyle Gibson (10-6) threw six one-point innings. The right-hander allowed six hits, struck out seven and had double-digit wins in a season for the seventh time in his career.

Harper, the reigning NL MVP, hit his 100th home run with the Phillies.

For the second night in a row, the Phillies scouted Miami one run before erasing the deficit with homers. Harper and Realmuto had back-to-back shots in the sixth against starter Edward Cabrera.

Harper’s drive off the wall into left center field tied it 1-all, and Realmuto’s home run to center chased Cabrera.

Jean Segura’s RBI double over Marlins reliever Richard Bleier in the sixth made it 3-1.

Realmuto again connected in the seventh with a three-point shot that extended Philadelphia’s lead.

The Phillies won their fifth straight series against Miami and will seek a second straight sweep against their NL East opponent on Thursday night. The Marlins are 15-37 since being swept at home by the Phillies July 15-17.

Cabrera (5-3) held Philadelphia to one hit until homers from Harper and Realmuto. He walked three, struck out four and hit two batters with pitches in 5 1/3 innings.

JJ Bleday gave the Marlins an early lead with his two-out RBI single in the first. Bleday’s line drive to the right scored Brian Anderson from second. Trail runner Nick Fortes got caught between second and third but was tagged out after Anderson went through the plate.

NEW ROLE

A staple of the Phillies rotation for seven seasons, Zach Eflin picked up and threw a perfect eighth. Eflin had been out since June 26 with a right knee injury and was activated from the injured list on Monday.

MOVING THE LIST

The Phillies claimed RHP Tayler Scott from San Diego waivers and offered him an option for Triple-A Lehigh Valley. LHP Kent Emmanuel was recalled from Lehigh Valley and placed on the 60-day injured list with a sprained left shoulder.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Phillies: Philadelphia slugger Rhys Hoskins left the game and underwent X-rays after being hit in the right hand by a Cabrera substitution in third. Hoskins ran the bases but was taken down in the bottom half. … OF Nick Castellanos (right oblique strain) didn’t take batting practice but worked on defensive drills.

Marlins: INF Joey Wendle (pain) is out for the second game in a row.
