Iowa State’s Trever Ryen will enter game at Oklahoma State as nation’s leader in punt return average

Sports

October 4th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Trever Ryen was sitting in a dorm room at Northern Iowa watching Iowa State playing Texas when he got the itch to play football again. Ryen had given up the game for a track scholarship with the Panthers. But when Ryen saw the Cyclones battle the Longhorns under the lights on national television, he realized he was letting his dream of playing at Iowa State pass him by.

“In my head I was like, ‘Man. It’d be so sweet playing at Jack Trice (Stadium) at night,'” Ryen said. “After watching that game I was like, ‘You know what? Screw it. I’m going to go try to live the dream.'”

The Cyclones are thrilled he did. Ryen, a junior wide receiver, enters this weekend’s game at Oklahoma State as the nation’s leader in punt return average. e is averaging 22.3 yards on seven returns. Four of them have gone at least 25 yards, with a long of 55.

Chiefs head into week off reeking of loss to Steelers

Sports

October 4th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — In the aftermath of a lopsided loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith acknowledged that “you own this right now, you wear it and it stinks.” The Chiefs will smell for quite a while.

Their embarrassing 43-14 loss on Sunday night left them 2-2 through their first four games, and with more questions than answers heading into a week off. Their offense was inept, their defense was fileted by Ben Roethlisberger and Co., and even their usually solid special teams were a stumbling mess.

“You’d love to go into it on a better note,” Smith said of the bye, “but who knows? Whether we like it or not, it’s here. We have to use it. Get healthy, regroup and bounce back from this.” Smith was sacked four times by a Steelers defense that had just one through the first three games. And one week after picking off six passes and forcing eight turnovers against the Jets, the Chiefs didn’t force a single turnover against the Steelers. Roethlisberger was 22 of 27 for 300 yards and five scores.

Griswold School officials cancel Friday’s FB game w/Earlham: Not enough players

Sports

October 4th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

Officials with the Griswold School District late Monday afternoon said in a social media post, “Due to limited numbers and player injuries,” [the district feels] “it is in the best interest of [its] football players and program to cancel this week’s game at Earlham.” Officials added, “The district will continue to evaluate weekly and will make determinations concerning future games at a later time.”

The Earlham School District first posted the change notice on its social media page. The Districts said “This circumstance is especially disappointing as this was supposed to be the Homecoming game. This is an unfortunate situation that is out of the District’s control.” The District said “All other Homecoming activities planned for this week will take place as scheduled.”

BOSTON (AP) — The Toronto Blue Jays were able to claim the first American League wild-card berth by downing the Boston Red Sox, 2-1. Devon Travis and Hanley Ramirez traded solo homers before Troy Tulowitzki lined a tiebreaking single in the eighth. Aaron Sanchez finished the regular season 15-2 by limiting the Red Sox to a run and two hits over seven innings.

NEW YORK (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles beat the New York Yankees 5-2 to reach the postseason for the third time in five years, this time as the second AL wild-card team. Matt Wieters homered from both sides of the plate, delivering two-run blows each time. Kevin Gausman fired eight innings of three-hit ball for the Orioles, who will face the Blue Jays in Toronto on Tuesday.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The Giants nosed out the Cardinals for the second NL wild-card berth and will take on the Mets in New York on Wednesday. San Francisco completed a three-game sweep of the Dodgers as Buster Posey provided three hits and three RBIs in a 7-1 romp over Los Angeles. Denard Span was 3-for-5 with two RBIs and three runs scored to back Matt Moore, who was reached for just one run and three hits over eight innings.

CHASKA, Minn. (AP) — The United States has recaptured the Ryder Cup with a 17-11 win over Europe. The Cup-clinching point came from captain’s pick Ryan Moore, who wasn’t on the team a week ago. Other U.S. winners on Sunday were Patrick Reed, Rickie Fowler, Dustin Johnson, Brandt Snedecker, Brooks Koepka and Zach Johnson.

ATLANTA (AP) — Matt Ryan and Julio Jones put up huge numbers as the Atlanta Falcons dropped the defending NFC champions to 1-3. Ryan threw for a team-record 503 yards and four touchdowns as Atlanta outscored Carolina, 48-33.
