Matt Charboneau The Detroit News Published 6:49 PM EST Feb 6, 2019 Matt Charboneau of The Detroit News breaks down Wednesday's football signings around the Big Ten. Ohio State Like most teams, the work for 2019 had essentially been completed during the early signing period, a time new coach Ryan Day did a good job of holding together a class that was recruited primarily with Urban Meyer in charge. On Wednesday, the Buckeyes added four-star guard Enokk Vimahi from Kahuku, Hawaii, but the big get over the last couple of months was the transfer of former Georgia quarterback Justin Fields. At the same time, Day and his staff worked toward the 2020 class — one that Meyer had already garnered a handful of commits — and beyond. That look ahead is bright as Ohio State secured a commitment from 2021 defensive end Jack Sawyer, who is expected to be a five-star prospect by the time his junior season at Pickerington (Ohio) North begins. Penn State The Nittany Lions were in good … [Read more...] about Big Ten recruiting: Ohio State’s Day takes baton from Meyer
Ohio national guard scholarship
Bringing guests to the House chamber for the State of the Union address has a long tradition. Lawmakers can each bring one guest, while the president may invite two dozen guests to sit in the first lady's box. The speaker of the House may also bring 24 guests to sit in the speaker's box. In many cases, the guests epitomize an issue currently facing the nation or a lawmaker's state. This year, as President Trump faces a busy legislative agenda where he continues to fight for border security funding, efforts to reform health care and stabilization of the nation's economy, the guest list ranges from undocumented immigrants to veterans, or to parents of school shooting victims. The list of the president's guests has not yet been released, but here's a list -- which will be updated -- of some of the notable guests attending the 2019 State of the Union address:ImmigrationManny Padilla, director of Border Patrol's Joint Task Force-West: The former sector chief for the Border Patrol Rio Grande … [Read more...] about Here’s who’s coming to the State of the Union address
James Hawkins The Detroit News Published 7:04 PM EDT Oct 23, 2018 Michigan has made an early splash with its 2020 recruiting class. The Wolverines landed a commitment from four-star Maumee (Ohio) guard Zeb Jackson on Tuesday. He announced his college decision on Twitter and picked Michigan over Michigan State, Purdue, Ohio State, Marquette, Butler and Arizona State. Jackson (6-foot-3, 160 pounds) is rated the second-best prospect in Ohio and No. 66 recruit in the nation in the 247Sports Composite rankings. His AAU team, C2K Elite, is also coached by Michigan junior guard Zavier Simpson's father, Quincey. Jackson was the first 2020 prospect to receive an offer from the Wolverines and is the first commit in the class. As it sits, Jackson’s commitment leaves one available scholarship left for 2020-21, but that doesn’t take into account any possible roster departures the next two offseasons.

Detroit Free Press Published 5:08 p.m. UTC Jun 15, 2018 She was a punishing fullback who saved teammates from blindside hits. Now, she saves people from sin. Sister Rita Clare Yoches, formerly Anne Yoches, will make her final vows to Jesus Christ on June 30 in Toronto, Ohio. Just over a decade ago, she was a punishing blocker for the Detroit Demolition, the now-defunct professional women’s football team that won championships in droves. Before that, she was a tough point guard at Detroit Mercy who liked to party. Yoches’ religious journey can be considered unconventional. How many nuns can say they knocked someone out of a game with a perfectly placed block? Or won four consecutive national titles? For years, Yoches sacrificed her body for the sake of her team. Then she sacrificed her old life for the sake of God, vowing to live in "chastity, poverty and obedience" for the rest of her life. “I think (my football career) is foreign to most people,” … [Read more...] about Ex-Detroit Demolition player was a punishing blocker. Now she’s a nun

Supported by ByGuy Lawson June 9, 2018 The Canadians could see the trouble looming in the summer of 2016. Chrystia Freeland, Canada’s trade minister at the time, found herself, along with millions of Canadians, fixated on the unfolding United States presidential election, and it was becoming impossible to overlook the gathering clouds of protectionism. Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton were each casting aspersions upon Nafta as if it were self-evidently a bad deal for American workers, especially for the hollowed-out working and middle classes in the Midwestern states, like Ohio and Michigan, that would decide the election. Incredibly, at least according to Trump, America’s … [Read more...] about First Canada Tried to Charm Trump. Now It’s Fighting Back.
