Wild prospect Matt Boldy out four to six weeks with ankle fracture

  Wild prospect Matt Boldy out four to six weeks with ankle fracture Matt Boldy is one of Minnesota’s top prospects after being the 12th overall pick back in 2019.  Boldy wrapped up his college career last season at Boston College with 31 points in 22 games to lead the Eagles in scoring before turning pro and finishing up the year in the minors with AHL Iowa.  He averaged more than a point per game there as well with 18 points in 14 contests, putting him in a spot to make a legitimate push for a regular role in Minnesota’s lineup coming into training camp.

NEW ORLEANS — One of the hottest tickets in town is to a high school stadium in the Uptown neighborhood, where homes tick over $1 million and the pregame scene resembles an SEC environment in miniature, with graduates, family members and friends drinking beers and jeering the bus bringing the road team to the front gate.

The crowd at Friday night’s game between Isidore Newman and Berkeley Prep (Tampa, Florida) included Georgia coach Kirby Smart, who came before kickoff and stayed through the final whistle.

Canada's unfair extradition system needs major reform: legal and human rights experts

  Canada's unfair extradition system needs major reform: legal and human rights experts OTTAWA — Canada's extradition laws need a thorough overhaul to ensure fairness, transparency, and a balance between administrative efficiency and constitutional protections, say legal and human rights experts. In a report released Thursday, the voices calling for reform say the Canadian process for sending people to face prosecution and incarceration abroad is riddled with shortcomings that make the system inherently unjust.

One of the top teams in Florida's 3A level of competition, Berkeley beat Newman 49-24 but did nothing to stem the enthusiasm over the game's main attraction.

From NFL plays to college sports scores, all the top sports news you need to know every day.

There was one reason for Smart to be in attendance: Newman’s Arch Manning, the 17-year-old quarterback who has the arm and name to be one of the biggest recruits in recent college football history.

What’s obvious at first blush: Manning has the size and surprising athleticism to justify his five-star status and warrant the attention given to his development into a top prospect — even if a healthy amount of that fascination is a result of his last name.

"I don’t say this lightly, this was the best game I’ve seen, going back to sixth grade, just because of the things he did and the heart he showed," Newman coach Nelson Stewart said.

Heisman Trophy watch: Updated odds, top candidates to win 2021 award

  Heisman Trophy watch: Updated odds, top candidates to win 2021 award There are 12 names worth looking at in the Heisman Trophy race heading into the final week of October. SN sorts it out along with Week 8 takeaways.In 2020, Alabama’s DeVonta Smith became the first receiver to win the award since 1991.

Unlike his uncles, Peyton and Eli, who were not known as particularly mobile quarterbacks, Arch showed off his speed with a 68-yard touchdown run in the first quarter.

"The fact that he was able to step up in an environment like that, in a spotlight like that, and eliminate the noise — I mean, he never panicked," Stewart said. "That’s a credit to him and his maturity and belief."

His recruitment has been a focus at some of college football's top programs, including Georgia, Texas, Alabama and Clemson. There are also schools with family ties to offer in Tennessee and Ole Miss. Eli Manning's jersey is being retired Saturday at Ole Miss, and Arch will be at the game vs. LSU on an unofficial visit.

Five plays that show why QB Arch Manning is the No. 1 recruit in nation

  Five plays that show why QB Arch Manning is the No. 1 recruit in nation Here are five moments from Arch Manning on Friday that show why he is the No. 1 quarterback and recruit in the nation.Manning wasn't perfect, throwing his second and third interceptions of the season, but still threw for 205 yards and scored two total touchdowns. However, Manning made enough big plays on Friday night that show why he holds the distinction of being the No. 1 recruit in the nation from the 2023 class.

Smart was there to see Arch Manning and, more importantly, to be seen. While not allowed to make any contact with Manning, the coach of the nation’s top-ranked team was a conspicuous presence along both sidelines, walking with Newman’s offense seemingly in an effort to always be in Manning’s line of sight, since these things matter.

"I saw him there in warmups," Manning said. "It’s cool having him come. It’s just cool getting to see him here."

His timeline is to make a decision sometime after his junior season, which will leave time for several more visits before giving a verbal commitment.

But the connection with the Georgia coaches has made the Bulldogs the co-favorites, joining Texas and new coach Steve Sarkisian. Reeling in Manning would also represent a huge win for Smart, who could pitch the idea of joining college football's next dynasty while playing in the SEC.

But first is Ole Miss, where the Manning name looms large over the football program.

"It’s kind of feels like a second home," Arch said. "So I’m excited to get back and see that game. Probably a lot of scoring in that one."

Denver Broncos honoring Hall of Famer Manning this weekend

  Denver Broncos honoring Hall of Famer Manning this weekend ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos haven't had much success since Peyton Manning retired a month after becoming the first starting quarterback to win Super Bowls with two different teams. But his legacy lives on at Empower Field at Mile High, where Manning will be honored Sunday during pregame and halftime ceremonies for his inductions into the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the Broncos' Ring of Fame. “I don’t really know what type of leader I would be without Peyton and having that example of what leadership and what greatness looks like every single day," said franchise sacks leader Von Miller, one of two Broncos who won Super Bowl 50 with Manning (kicker Bra

Coach, GM give Shumur measured support as Broncos sputter .
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Embattled Broncos offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur received measured support this week from both his head coach and his general manager, but also admonitions to score more points. This weekend would be an ideal time. The Broncos (4-4) travel to Dallas to face a Cowboys team that’s reeled off six straight wins since a last-second loss to Tampa Bay and is averaging 32.1 points per game. That’s the type of proficiency common in Denver when Peyton Manning was leading the team's high-scoring offense and hollering out, “Omaha! Omaha!” Since then, it’s been plenty of “OMG! OMG!” as the Broncos sputter and wheeze their way around the field.
