Former Jets Lineman Winston Hill Dies

first_imgNEW YORK — Winston Hill, a durable All-Pro offensive tackle who played 15 seasons and helped protect Joe Namath on the way to the New York Jets’ Super Bowl victory in 1969, has died. He was 74.The team announced April 26 that Hill, a member of the Jets’ inaugural Ring of Honor class in 2010, died in his adopted hometown of Denver.Hill made a franchise-record eight All-Star teams, the first five at left tackle and the last three on the right side. He also holds the team mark for offensive linemen with 195 consecutive games played, keeping his streak going despite breaking a leg in the 1965 preseason. Hill also was selected in 1970 for the AFL’s All-Time second team.Jets owner Woody Johnson called Hill “one of the Jets’ all-time greats” in a statement provided by the team.“I was very sad to hear of the passing of Winston Hill,” Johnson said. “He was our most decorated player with a franchise-record eight all-star game appearances. And as accomplished as he was on the field, he was an even better person whose profound impact on his teammates and those who came in contact with him left an impression for a lifetime.“He was the type of man who, if you were his friend, you thought you were his best friend.”Hill, who grew up in Joaquin, Texas, was drafted by Baltimore in the 11th round of the 1962 NFL draft out of Texas Southern, where he played on both the offensive and defensive lines.The Colts released him in August 1963 and he signed with the Jets the next day. He quickly established himself as one of pro football’s top offensive linemen, making three straight AFL All-Star games in 1967-69 and four straight Pro Bowls from 1970-73.In addition to protecting Namath, Hill helped block for Matt Snell, who ran for 121 yards and a touchdown in New York’s 16-7 Super Bowl victory over Baltimore.“Winnie was like my brother,” former center John Schmitt told the team’s website. “He was a terrific football player. His heart was as big as his body. He did not have a bad thing to say about anyone. I am going to miss that turkey.”Hill’s final season came in 1977 with the Los Angeles Rams, who also had Namath that year.After retiring from football, Hill opened a BBQ and ribs restaurant in Centennial, Colorado.Hill joined Namath, wide receiver Don Maynard and coach Weeb Ewbank — all members of that Super Bowl-winning team — along with running back Curtis Martin and defensive lineman Joe Klecko as the Jets’ first Ring of Honor inductees.(DENNIS WASZAK Jr., AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Manchester United boss Solskjaer defends de Gea after costly error in Chelsea draw

first_imgManchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says David de Gea has the strength of character to rebound from a slew of mistakes in recent weeks and has no intention of dropping the goalkeeper for the final two games of the season.The Spaniard’s latest error came in Sunday’s 1-1 Premier League draw with Chelsea. United had gone ahead through Juan Mata but Chelsea equalised when De Gea weakly parried Antonio Rudiger’s effort into the path of Marcos Alonso, who tucked the ball in.De Gea has made a number of uncharacteristic mistakes in recent games but Solskjaer says the goalkeeper cannot take the blame for the team’s struggles.”I don’t have any worries about him, because he’s a strong character,” Solskjaer told British media. “He knows he could have had that shot, but that’s football.”The result leaves United sixth in the league on 65 points and dented their hopes of securing a top-four finish. They sit three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea with two games left.”With David, he’s been in the spotlight for right reasons for so long and now he’s going through a period where he feels he could have done better,” Solskjaer added.”But there’s no chance any of us will point fingers because he’s saved us so many times. I’ll speak to David, as I’ve done when he’s played well… he’s not the reason we’re sixth.”United’s last two games of the season are against Huddersfield Town and Cardiff City.Also Read | Sergio Aguero strikes as nervous Manchester City hold firm for win at BurnleyAlso Read | Arsenal’s top-four hopes hit after 3-0 defeat to Leicester CityAlso See:advertisementlast_img read more

first_img Asian News International BangaluruMarch 14, 2019UPDATED: March 14, 2019 12:07 IST VRV Singh last represented Punjab in the Ranji Trophy in the year 2014 (Getty Images)VRV Singh, the Indian pacer who just played five Test matches in 2006-07, has announced his retirement after a career constantly hampered by injury.The 34-year-old also played two ODI matches for India along with five Tests as part of a new-look Indian pace attack. The bowler was just able to take eight wickets in five Tests and he did not take any wicket in the ODI format.”I kept trying to make a comeback, but if it was not my ankle, it was my back. You cannot fool around with your body. I had surgeries, rehab… After 2014, I did not play at all for a few years, but I trained and tried to play in 2018. But I could not make it, so I started thinking about the future,” ESPN Cricinfo quoted Singh as saying.”It is not an overnight decision, but once I could not get fit for the 2018-19 season, I thought it made sense to leave. Yuvi (Yuvraj Singh) encouraged me a lot, the PCA (Punjab Cricket Association) also backed me, and I gave it my best. But, unfortunately, it didn’t happen. So I thought it best to retire and think about what to do next,” he added.The pacer played his last representative game in 2014 for Punjab in the Ranji Trophy in which he was able to take two wickets in the first innings and five wickets in the second innings against Jammu and Kashmir.Singh made his debut for Punjab in 2005 when he just 21-years old.advertisementAlso Read | Case registered against fraudsters duping young cricketers in return for Ranji selectionFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Rabat – Congolese ambassador (Congo Brazzaville) to Morocco Jean-Claude Gakosso has recently handed King Mohammed VI an invitation letter from President Denis Sassou Nguesso. The letter is an invitation extended to the Moroccan monarch to take part in a conference to be held on April 25 in the Congolese capital city.The Blue Funds conference seeks to mobilize funds and other resources to help maintain and preserve the ecological riches and uniqueness of the Congo Basin.

Also speaking to the press on Morocco-Congo bilateral relations, Mr. Bourita stressed Morocco’s desire to reinforce its relationships with all “fellow Africans.”Mr. Bourita spoke of “sincere friendship” and necessary “solidarity” to face the numerous challenges of “common African ambitions.” Bourita reminded the pres that the two countries share historical ties and enjoy “very old relations.” He added that the bilateral ties between the two countries are based on an “unwavering solidarity in times of hardship” and a common desire to strengthen existing relations.Bourita concluded, the two countries’ foreign affairs ministers have a special and solemn obligation to bring their nations closer together, thus boosting and upholding the friendship and “fraternity” that have always characterized their relationships. read more

Weather Eye Will we make it through January without any more rain

first_img In Thursday’s column, I said there was no bad news weather-wise for us this weekend. Well, I guess the bad news was the fog and low clouds were so persistent that, in most areas, it didn’t clear off. So, yucky, gray, gloomy and cold weather Friday and Saturday.I was at the coast this weekend and it was gorgeous. Sunny skies, calm winds and great beach-walking weather. Another sunny spot was in the Cascades above the inversion, which made for great spring-like skiing. Sunny and warm with temperatures in the 50s.Today will be another mostly sunny one in the mountains and at the beach. We should start to get a drift of offshore winds that should help clear things up locally by this afternoon, I hope.Last week, computer models were basically saying no rain for the rest of January. Saturday afternoon they were all over the place, with a chance of showers Tuesday night through Thursday. We’ll see if that pans out. If we do get raindrops, I don’t expect much.I think you can put a fork in winter like it is over for chances of cold and snow. I know we still have February to get through, and we still have tons of arctic air to our north. But all extended computer forecast models say ‘nay.’ Patrick Timm is a local weather specialist.

Lazio owner talks about how the club has grown

first_imgSince taking charge of the Italian Lega Serie A club Lazio, owner Claudio Lotito has seen his team grow61-year-old Claudio Lotito took charge of Italian Lega Serie A club Lazio in 2004.Since then, he has seen his team grown into a better club.“Lazio achieved certain objectives that in the past were beyond hope,” the owner and president of Lazio told Football Italia.“Compared to the state of the club when I took over, now it has confidence that it is self-sustainable, is projected towards growth of the youth academy, where it has the highest ranking in Italy and is running the club in a virtuous manner.”Fonseca hints Smalling could debut tomorrow Manuel R. Medina – August 31, 2019 AS Roma manager Paulo Fonseca has hinted Chris Smalling could debut in tomorrow’s Derby Della Capitale between his team and Lazio.“This year, we took five players from the youth academy into the first team. We are the only side that focused on developing its own young players and will soon be able not only to face off with anyone but also have the solid foundations to make its mark on the international scene,” he added.“This all allows the club to become a reference point for others. The objective for Lazio is to get satisfying results for its fans that are also in line with the resources at its disposal.”“The fans are the essence of the system and without them, there would be no sport. It is also true that the fans must support their team while respecting the rules, not trying to replace the club owners, otherwise, there is confusion of roles. They can criticise constructively where views are not shared,” he commented.“We are turning Lazio into a model club in terms of results in line with resources. Football now is no longer about a patron who pours money in, but rather the ability to create new revenue and compatible choices with the resources available.”last_img read more
