Dave Birkett Detroit Free Press Published 6:00 AM EDT Mar 17, 2019 Trey Flowers was in the eighth grade when a doctor told him he’d never play football again. Flowers was a do-everything star in junior high at the time, so much bigger and stronger than everyone else that as a youth he had to borrow a helmet from nearby Alabama A&M because it was the only one big enough to fit his head. He played defensive line and as a fullback, and when one opponent was having an especially tough time bringing him down, players from the team started diving at his legs. Flowers injured his knee on one such tackle, and when his father took him to the doctor the next day, the two were left alone in a room to digest the bad news. “When the doctor walked out of the room I asked Trey, I said, ‘Well, what do you think?’ ” Robert Flowers, Trey’s father, recalled in a phone interview with the Free Press on Friday. “He said, ‘I’m gonna play … [Read more...] about Why Detroit Lions DE Trey Flowers a true prize free agent

By Mark Medina | [email protected] | Bay Area News Group PUBLISHED: September 24, 2018 at 8:00 am | UPDATED: September 24, 2018 at 8:08 am Just like what happened last year, Warriors coach Steve Kerr might chuckle to himself when he first addresses his team to open training camp. After all, how do you tell an NBA championship team how to improve? The Warriors do not need much of a to-do list. This is how things have played out in the last four years: While other teams stayed busy with spring cleaning, the Warriors dominated postseason games in April and May.
