High school freshman Julian Lewis has already made a Georgia state title game as a starting quarterback, has Ohio State, USC and Georgia among his 35 scholarship offers and has gone viral by wowing NFL stars with his skills.

The 15-year-old profiles as a precocious prodigy in nearly every way, even carrying a nickname that resonates: "JuJu." Lewis has the same high school football coach as Trevor Lawrence and the same trainer who oversaw Lawrence and Justin Fields in their formative years in Georgia. Neither is holding back on what's possible for Lewis.

Sports Forum / 15 colleges that have produced the most Super Bowl players
« on: February 10, 2023, 08:45:54 PM »

College football success doesn't always translate to NFL success. But when a player succeeds at a powerhouse school, chances are they'll have a fruitful career in the pros. Of course, hundreds of colleges have produced football players at the highest level. In fact, 428 different schools have been represented on the first 56 Super Bowl rosters; however, many schools have churned out Super Bowl contenders that have risen to levels higher than the rest.

JustWatch ranked the 15 most common colleges of players on the rosters of Super Bowl teams throughout NFL history using data from Colleges are ranked based on their total number of appearances on rosters. The data set also includes the unique number of players from each college in Super Bowl history and each college's former players who made Super Bowl rosters most frequently. Rosters from are season-long and do not necessarily represent the active rosters from the day of the Super Bowl.

To show the dominance of the schools on this list, 13 of the colleges had at least one player on either the Los Angeles Rams or Cincinnati Bengals' rosters during Super Bowl LVI, and all 15 had at least one player on a Super Bowl roster during the first two editions.

Sports Forum / Golden Rams Baseball Open the Season at Columbus State
« on: February 07, 2023, 07:42:23 PM »

The Albany State Golden Rams baseball team will open the 2023 season against the Columbus State Cougars on Wednesday, February 8, in Columbus, Georgia.  The first pitch is scheduled at 5:00 pm.
The Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SIAC) has announced its 2023 Baseball Preseason Teams as voted on by the league's head coaches and sports information directors.  The Golden Rams of Albany State (32-16, 24-5 SIAC) are tied at seven preseason selections with the Badgers of Spring Hill College.
The Rams are returning most of the hitters from a team that ranked sixth in the country in batting average (.350) last season and second in the country in runs per game (10.7).  Some key returners for the 2023 season include: utility player and third baseman Nathan Lloyd, starting pitcher Jeremiah Reddell, second baseman Hill Corley, outfielders Lavoisier Fisher and Zane Ross, and designated hitter Tucker Jordan.
Coach Hemmings had this to say about the 2023 season, "I am very excited about the 2023 season. We had a great fall and had a good group that really worked hard.  We also renovated most of the ballpark and added some nice touches with new netting, a new warning track, updates to the press box and concession stand and will have 300 new chairback seats installed before opening day. It was not only a good fall on the field, but the Rams carried a 3.33 team GPA in the classroom this year. Coach Reynolds did an amazing job with this recruiting class. His tireless work has paid off, and we cannot wait to see them in action in a few weeks. Coach Reynolds has a great eye for talent and really connects with the recruits. I am also excited about the addition of Coach Luis Martinez. He was a huge help with his knowledge on the infield and brings an infectious personality that the guys love playing for. I hope we can return to winning a SIAC championship and competing in a National Regional."

ALBANY - Albany State's new head coach Quinn Gray said in his first press conference that you would be impressed with his first recruiting class and the coach was right. On the job just a few weeks, Gray and his staff pulled 22 plus new football players into the Albany State football family.   Not only did the Rams get 17 high school letters of intent, they also added seven players who are transferring from other colleges. One of the most interesting recruits might be quarterback Isaiah Knowles who is transferring from the Naval Academy.

Knowles, a graduate of Seffner Christian near Tampa, Fla and was a two-time All-State quarterback and is the school's all-time record holder in all passing categories. He threw 91 touchdown passes during his high school career.

"Today has been a great day for the Golden Rams," Gray said Wednesday. "National Signing Day is one of those days that you think you're going to have a great day until you don't, so…

Sports Forum / 2023 ASU Golden Rams Baseball Season Preview
« on: January 13, 2023, 11:18:39 PM »

Albany State University is coming off a 32-16 record last year under head coach Scot Hemmings. The Albany State Golden Rams ended their season playing in the SIAC championship game, losing to Spring Hill College 8-7. The Albany State Golden Rams also participated in the Black College World Series in Montgomery, AL. The Rams are looking forward to the 2023 baseball season with a shot at winning the SIAC conference championship and returning to the NCAA regionals. The last time ASU Baseball played in the regionals was in 2018 in Lakeland, FL. The Rams will open up on Feb 8th at Columbus State University.

The Rams are…

ATLANTA — After months of failed legal challenges, Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) appeared Tuesday before a special grand jury investigating efforts by former president Donald Trump and his allies to overturn Trump’s 2020 election loss in Georgia, the latest high-profile witness in a probe that is believed to be nearing a conclusion.

Houston Astros manager Dusty Baker says it ‘looks bad’ that the 2022 World Series will have zero African American players

Houston Astros manager Dusty Baker said it “looks bad” that there will be no US-born Black players in the 2022 World Series.

On Wednesday, The Associated Press reported that there would be no US-born Black players in the World Series for the first time since 1950, three years after Jackie Robinson broke the Major League Baseball color barriers.

Baker, who is one of two Black MLB managers, was asked for his thoughts about the AP report at the Astros media day on Thursday. “Well, I don’t think that that’s something that baseball should really be proud of. It looks bad,” Baker said. “It lets people know that it didn’t take a year or even a decade to get to this point.”

SAVANNAH — With more than 30 Albany State Golden Rams football players dealing with the flu, the Golden Rams still managed to get to Savannah and beat Savannah State 31-20 Saturday afternoon.

The Rams are now 6-2 overall this season and 4-1 in the SIAC. Savannah State fell to 3-5 overall and 2-4 in the conference.

Quarterback Jhaydon Sullivan, a sophomore from Winder, got the start Saturday and completed 15 of 20 passes for 144 yards and two touchdowns to lead the offense. Freshman running back JaQuez Williams, from Redan High School in Atlanta, ran for 154 yards on 27 carries and scored a touchdown and a two-point conversion. Rashad Jordan, a junior from Cedar Grove in Atlanta, caught two touchdown passes for the Golden Rams.

“We wanted to give Jhaydon a shot and see if he could jump-start the offense a little,” said ASU head coach Gabe Giardina. “JaQuez is coming off an ACL injury and he is finally healthy. We had some guys sick and he has been killing our first-team defense, so we wanted to give him a shot also. Our offensive line and tight ends played really well.”
Malik Barnes, from Mitchell County High School in Camilla, recorded two sacks and had a scoop and score fumble recovery with a seven-yard run for the touchdown. Stephan Pierre led the team with nine tackles, including a sack for a 10-yard loss.

“It was a great character win,” the coach said. “Our guys stuck together and kept believing and we were glad we got it done.”

The Golden Rams will host their final home game of the season next Saturday at the Albany State Coliseum when Morehouse College comes to town. Kickoff is planned for 2 p.m. Morehouse (0-8) lost to Benedict Saturday afternoon 35-0.

The Houston Astros are strong favorites to win the World Series, which starts Friday, and one of the team’s most famous fans is going all in on oddsmakers’ predicted outcome for the “Fall Classic.”

Flamboyant Houston furniture store owner Jim McIngvale, known as “Mattress Mack,” made a series of bets – $10 million in all – earlier this year on the Astros to win the World Series.

If the Astros do regain their MLB crown – the team’s first title came in 2017 – McIngvale will win an eye-watering $75 million, which has been widely reported would be largest payout in sports betting history.

Albany eighth-grader K.J. Acree nets scholarship offer from Dawn Staley, reigning champion South Carolina
