Shabby Gold Coast unit block and beach shack fetch almost $2 million at auction

September 28, 2020 0 Comments

first_imgThe beachfront site was called on the market at $1.82 million. A local businessman plans to land bank the site.A high-profile local businessman purchased the block, which was best suited as a new house site, according to Mr Dowker. “The buyer purchased it as a long-term hold, it’s a land banking investment for his property portfolio,” he said. “The interest in that area has really gained popularity in the last three or four years. “It’s low density, a narrow corridor with easy access to amenities and the main attraction is that it’s a very relaxed vibe there. “It’s not vibrant at all, just a very chilled, laid-back living environment.” The four dwelling are rented out for $1160 each week.The four two-bedroom pads reap $1160 rental income each week and are in original condition. Bilinga has a $885,000 median house price, which has grown by 63.9 per cent in the last three years, according to the latest CoreLogic data. Its median unit price has jumped 30 per cent in that time frame and sits at $637,000.

The 506sq m property was announced on the market at $1.82 million and the hammer fell at a staggering $1.936 million — more than $100,000 above expectations. It sold for a whopping $1.936 million.Ray White Mermaid Beach agent Troy Dowker, who marketed the property at 124 Pacific Pde, said bidding kicked off at $1.5 million with 51 bids placed in total. Bidding started in $100,000 and $50,000 increments before dropping down to $5000 and $1000 bids as the almost 30 minute auction drew to an end. “There is an original 1940s circa house at the front and three 1950s circa flats tacked onto the back of it,” Mr Dowker said. “They are all fibro and would be one of the oldest in the area. “The sale underpins the strength of the beachfront market in the southern end.” MORE NEWS: Olympian strike gold as holiday home fetches millions More from news02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa10 hours ago02:37Gold Coast property: Sovereign Islands mega mansion hits market with $16m price tag1 day ago MORE NEWS: Inside the Coast’s highest selling properties Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 0:58Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -0:58 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels720p720pHD432p432p216p216p180p180pAutoA, selectedAudio Tracken (Main), selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Sovcomflot Orders LNG-Fueled Tanker Trio from Zvezda

September 28, 2020 0 Comments

first_imgRussian shipping major Sovcomflot placed an order for three product carriers that use LNG fuel as their primary fuel in late December.The company said that it ordered the MR vessels from compatriot Zvezda Shipbuilding Complex on December 28, 2018.To feature a deadweight of 51,000 tonnes each, the units would transport petroleum products and gas condensate under long-term time charter agreements with Novatek, one of the largest independent natural gas producers in Russia.SCF said that each tanker would have an ice class of 1B, enabling safe operations in areas with challenging ice conditions, including the Baltic.“The technical specification of the tankers reflects the international regulatory limits on sulphur, nitrogen and greenhouse gas emissions, which will come into effect in 2020,” SCF added.The deal comes on the back of an order for two 114,000 dwt LNG-fueled Aframax crude oil tankers, which Sovcomflot placed with Zvezda in September 2018.last_img read more

Decriminalising euthanasia will open flood gates – Family First

September 27, 2020 0 Comments

first_imgNewstalk ZB 30 April 2012One family lobby group expects the flood gates would be opened up by decriminalising euthanasia. The issue has come under the spotlight again as Labour’s Maryan Street prepares a private members bill to give people the choice around how and when they finish their life. Family First national director Bob McCoskrie is against the idea, saying it could be the start of a slippery slope. “When we decriminalise euthanasia, we then send an underlying message to disabled, to sick people, to elderly people, even to socially disadvantaged people, that they can be a burden upon their families, upon the taxpayer.” Mr McCoskrie says they would then look to euthanasia as the perfect solution. He says research from around the world shows voluntary euthanasia, with strict legal safeguards and reporting measures doesn’t work. He wants a shift in focus. “At the end of the day I think we should be focusing on giving people quality and social palliative care rather than sending a message that euthanasia will simply solve the problem.”http://www.newstalkzb.co.nz/auckland/news/nbhea/1969541066-Decriminalising-euthanasia-will-open-flood-gateslast_img read more

Cuba battling first major cholera outbreak in half a century.

September 26, 2020 0 Comments

first_img Sharing is caring! 24 Views   no discussions More than 50 people have reportedly been infected and authorities say the cholera outbreak is under control but four hospitals have been prepared to quarantine patients.HAVANA, Cuba, Monday July 9, 2012 – At least three people and as many as 15 are said to have died in Cuba over the past few weeks as the island’s first major cholera outbreak in more than 50 years spreads.Most of the cases were in Cuba’s south-eastern Granma province but it appears now that the disease has travelled the more than 750km (470 miles) to Havana.The latest reports from the BBC are that a 60-year-old woman admitted to a Havana hospital last Wednesday (July 4) has been confirmed with the disease. As she was diagnosed early, doctors say she is in a stable condition.According to the BBC and Reuters, official reports are that three people have died of cholera and another 50 have been diagnosed with the illness in an outbreak caused by contaminated well water, while about 1,000 have received medical attention. The three people who died ranged in age from 66 to 95-years-old and reportedly suffered from other chronic health problems.However, according to the CMC, Havana independent journalist Calixto Martinez reports that the outbreak has killed at least 15 people and affected hundreds more. He said he had obtained information from residents and health workers in the region.More than 50 people have reportedly been infected and authorities say the outbreak is under control but four hospitals have been prepared to quarantine patients.On Tuesday (July 3), the Cuban government said the illness was caused by contaminated well water and it blamed recent heavy rains and high temperatures for the water problems, which forced the closure of some wells and the chlorination of the water system in the hardest hit areas.The Public Health Ministry said in a statement that the township of Mazanillo in the southeast province of Granma had suffered the most cholera cases, which have occurred in the last few weeks, but that the outbreak is slowing.Cholera is an intestinal infection that can lead to death if not treated promptly and properly. Cholera outbreaks have been rare, or at least not publicized, in Cuba since the 1959 revolution and the creation of a national health system by the communist government. The Health Ministry said the last reported cholera outbreak on the island was soon after the 1959 Revolution.According to the BBC, while it is not clear what the source of the cholera is, there is speculation that there is a Haiti link.Hundreds of medical professionals from the centre of the Cuban infection, including nurses, have worked and continue to work with patients in Haiti, where tens of thousands of people were infected after the devastating earthquake in 2010.Cuba’s health ministry has stated that it has the “resources necessary for the adequate attention to patients in all the health institutions” during this cholera outbreak.They said they had taken a series of measures, including taking samples of water and adding chlorine to purify it, to combat the outbreak.Caribbean 360 News Share Sharecenter_img NewsRegional Cuba battling first major cholera outbreak in half a century. by: – July 9, 2012 Share Tweetlast_img read more

Video: Timo Werner first Chelsea training emerges online

September 24, 2020 0 Comments

first_img Read Also: Willian to agree new Chelsea deal this week According to reports, Werner is set to take the top sport with a £170k-a-week deal and, in accordance to Spotrac’s wages for Chelsea, that would make him number one. Christian Pulisic is currently top of the list on £158k followed by Kepa Arrizabalaga on £150k and N’Golo Kante on £144k, while Willian is currently in fourth with his £138k wage. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Chelsea’s new signing Timo Werner has taken part in his first training session at the club’s Cobham training ground following his £53 million move from Bundesliga side RB Leipzig. The 24-year-old, who is reportedly set to pocket £170,000-a-week at Stamford Bridge after the club met his release clause, has been in scintillating form this season, scoring 35 goals in all competitions. Werner was heavily linked with a move to Premier League leaders Liverpool for a number of months but Lampard’s men managed to get a deal over the line. The impressive addition of Dutch winger Hakim Ziyech from Ajax in a £33 million deal is another great piece of business, while it appears Kai Havertz is another man destined for Stamford Bridge. Loading… In terms of Havertz’s movement in the window, the attacking midfielder will reportedly become Chelsea’s fifth highest earner next season, if Chelsea can agree terms with Bayer Leverkusen for the young forward. Those reported terms would put him on a basic wage of £140,000-a-week, plus bonuses, which would make him the Blues’ fifth highest earner.center_img While his new teammates had the day off, Werner trained on his own, building up his fitness as well as participating in dribbling drills and finishing practice. Chelsea are certainly making a big impression in the transfer window. He will certainly be a welcome addition as Frank Lampard prepares to make a title push next season. And after the German striker was in attendance for the club’s win over Wolves at the weekend, Werner has now taken part in his first training session and he looks sharp.

Spurs confirm Baldini role

September 21, 2020 0 Comments

first_imgTottenham have confirmed the appointment of former England assistant manager Franco Baldini as technical director at the Barclays Premier League club. The 52-year-old Italian recently left his post as general manager of Roma and is understood to be set to look after Spurs’ scouting and transfer policy. A statement on Tottenham’s official Twitter feed read: “We are delighted to announce that Franco Baldini has joined the club in the role of technical director.” Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas has been keen for the club to move to a structure similar to those adopted by many in mainland Europe, having worked with a technical director during his successful time in charge at Porto. Spurs chairman Daniel Levy also favours that set-up, with Frank Arnesen and Damien Comolli both having undertaken similar roles at White Hart Lane in the past. Levy said on the club’s official website, www.tottenhamhotspur.com: “Franco is extremely well respected in the industry, possessing an extensive knowledge of players around the world. “He will strengthen our football management team, particularly in the field of recruitment, working closely with Andre Villas-Boas and Tim Sherwood across all levels on the playing side.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

first_img Associated Press CLEVELAND (AP) — Olympic boxing champion Pete Rademacher has died at age 91.Rademacher won a gold medal at the 1956 Melbourne Games and fought Floyd Patterson for the heavyweight title in his first professional bout. Rademacher is the only boxer to fight for a championship in his first pro bout.He knocked Patterson down in the second round before being counted out in the sixth.  Rademacher had dementia for years and his brain will be donated for medical research. — Oakland Athletics owner John Fisher has decided to pay his team’s minor league players after all, saying he made a mistake. The San Francisco Chronicle first reported the billionaire’s intentions and quoted his apology. A club spokeswoman says Fisher also is establishing a fund to help furloughed employees.— Liverpool could win the Premier League title at home after all. Police originally indicated they wanted the Reds’ second game after the restart against Crystal Palace to be staged at a neutral venue because of concerns that supporters could congregate outside Anfield. But the league now says the game on June 24 is scheduled to be at Liverpool’s home stadium. Liverpool leads Manchester City by 25 points and is two wins from ending its 30-year title drought.— Italian top-flight soccer clubs are asking for no title winner or relegations if the season is stopped again. One of the ideas the Italian federation is planning in case of another stop is the use of an algorithm to decide the final classification. Italian media reported 16 of the 20 Serie A teams voted in favor of not relegating anyone and not assigning the league title unless it is mathematically certain. A final decision is expected to be made during the next FIGC council meeting on Monday.— The Italian soccer federation says teams will be allowed up to five substitutions in matches, although there will still be only three pauses to bring players off the bench. Italian competitions will adopt the temporary rules change when they resume next week. If matches go into extra time and teams haven’t used all five of their substitutes, they can make a fourth interruption at the end of regular time or between the two halves of extra time. The Italian Cup will be completed next week before Serie A is set to resume on June 20.— The Asian qualifying tournament for the World Cup is set to resume in October after the coronavirus pandemic forced games in March and June to be postponed. The Asian Football Confederation says it agreed with FIFA (FEE’-fah) to schedule two dates in October and two in November to complete the current groups. Twelve teams will advance to a further group stage next year. UNDATED (AP) — South Carolina coach Will Muschamp and football players joined others in a protest march from the Governor’s Mansion on Friday.The march of several hundred people went the nearly 2 miles from the governor’s residence to the State House. South Carolina quarterback Jay Ulrich carried a sign, “Matter is the minimum. Black lives are worthy. Black lives are beloved. Black lives are needed.” It is the seventh straight day of rallies in South Carolina following the death of George Floyd.NFL-PATRIOTS SOCIAL JUSTICE PLEDGEPatriots pledge $1 million to social justice causesBOSTON (AP) — The New England Patriots say team owner Robert Kraft’s family is pledging $1 million to local grassroots organizations to promote social justice causes. NEW YORK (AP) — Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes (mah-HOHMZ’) is among more than a dozen NFL stars who united to send a passionate video message to the league about racial inequality.The 70-second video was released on social media platforms Thursday night and includes Saquon Barkley, Michael Thomas, Odell Beckham Jr., Deshaun Watson, Ezekiel Elliott, Jamal Adams, Stephon Gilmore and DeAndre Hopkins, among others.The video closes with the players demanding the NFL state that it condemns “racism and the systemic oppression of black people,” and that the league “admit wrong in silencing” players from peacefully protesting. The players also want the league to state: “We, the National Football League, believe black lives matter.”AMERICA PROTESTS-COLLEGE FOOTBALL-SOUTH CAROLINAGamecocks march for Floyd June 5, 2020 Tokyo Governor Yurkio Koike said Thursday the games were likely to be downsized and undergo many changes.SPORTS-VIRUS OUTBREAKMemorial could be first PGA event with fans on handUNDATED (AP) — Ohio Gov.

He said on Twitter that casinos, racinos, amusement parks and water parks will be able to open on June 19.In other sports developments related to the coronavirus outbreak: Athletic director Larry Teis calls the allegations deeply troubling and said the investigation would be handled through the school’s Office of Equal Opportunity and Title IX.Former Bobcats point guard Jaylen Shead posted the allegations on Twitter late Thursday, accusing Kaspar of singling out black players with racist taunts and threatening to have a foreign player deported.Shead transferred to Washington State before last season.BOXING-OBIT-RADEMACHERPete Rademacher, 1956 Olympic boxing champion, dies at 91 Players accused teams of “depriving America of baseball games” as part of a money fight created by the coronavirus pandemic. They raised the possibility baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred might push ahead with a shortened season over the union’s objection.Union chief negotiator Bruce Meyer has sent a letter to Deputy Commissioner Dan Halem threatening that an attempt to play without an agreement could lead players to block any attempt to expand the playoffs and deny consent to neutral-site games in the postseason.Major League Baseball made its initial economic proposal on May 26, offering an 82-game regular season schedule and a sliding scale of cuts beyond the prorated shares of salaries the sides agreed to on March 26.Players responded on Sunday with a 114-game regular season schedule running through October and no additional cuts. Each player would get about 70% of his original salary under the union’s plan and roughly 22-47% under MLB’s proposal, including $200 million tied to the postseason being completed.Management quickly rejected the union plan and said it would not offer a counterproposal given the insistence of the players’ desire for a longer season that would spill into November. Among MLB’s objections concerns November baseball that could be canceled by a second wave of COVID-19. SANTA MONICA, Calif.

When Colin Kaepernick took a knee during the national anthem to take a stand against police brutality and racial injustice, he was mostly alone. Politicians, owners and fellow players criticized him, fans burned his jersey and he was booed even at home. Four years later, his protest is widely viewed as prescient. Global opinion has shifted so much that more people are vilifying those who attack Kaepernick or misrepresent his stance. George Floyd’s death, which ignited nationwide protests over racial injustice and police brutality, awakened many people to the root of the issues that led to Kaepernick’s demonstration.NFL-BRONCOS-ELWAYElway joins call for change after George Lloyd’s killingENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Denver Broncos general manager John Elway is adding his voice to calls for change in the aftermath of a black man’s killing in Minnesota while in police custody. Elway says in a lengthy Twitter post that he spent the week listening to his players and decided he had been wrong in his views of race relations since his playing days. Elway says he now realizes that he has to join his players and coaches in speaking out against racism, police brutality and injustices in the black community. Elway says he’s no longer staying on the sideline.The comments from the Denver Broncos’ general manager came in a lengthy Twitter post at the end of a tempestuous week in which his head coach, Vic Fangio, drew widespread condemnation for suggesting he didn’t see racism or discrimination in the NFL. A statement and video released on the team’s website Friday says the money will be distributed over the next 10 months in $100,000 monthly donations. The recipients will be chosen in collaboration with Patriots players.The groups selected will be those “fighting for equity, working to end systemic racism and creating meaningful change in our community.”The video says, “change always begins with listening.” The recipients will be invited to speak with the team’s executive staff and senior management across the Kraft Group’s businessesVIRUS OUTBREAK-NFLMore than half of NFL coaching staffs not at team facilities NFL-RACISMGoodell says league erred by thwarting protestsNEW YORK (AP) — NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said his league made a mistake.Goodell said the league was wrong for not listening to players fighting for racial equality and encouraged them to peacefully protest. He made his strongest statement on the issues many players passionately support, one day after 2018 NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes (mah-HOHMZ’) and several of his peers released a video demanding the league condemn racism.George Floyd’s death has ignited nationwide protests over racial injustice and police brutality, issues former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick began speaking out against in 2016. Goodell said, “I personally protest with you and want to be part of the much-needed change in this country.” Fangio’s remarks came during a media call Tuesday after the team addressed the widespread demonstrations that were sparked by a white police officer’s killing of a handcuffed black man in Minnesota last week.Fangio apologized a day later, saying he only meant to suggest the league was a meritocracy on the field and in the locker room and should have recognized the lack of minority head coaches, general managers, team presidents and owners in the country’s most popular sport.NFL JAGUARS PROTEST MARCH‘Today we say no more’: Jaguars march to sheriff’s officeJACKSONVILLE, Fla.

Kaleb Joseph took off his basketball sneakers and scrolled through his phone, crouching in front of the same locker point guard Tyler Ennis occupied a year ago. Then he was crowded by cameras and tape recorders, like Ennis always was, and smiled while rattling off answers — accepting as many compliments as he dished out.Chris McCullough weaved through a crowd of his teammates and reporters in nothing but a towel, retreating to the same corner that forward Jerami Grant used to sit in while he got dressed after games. Joseph and McCullough stood in the place of the players they’re effectively replacing — if not by exact position and skill set, then in the two starting spots that have both freshmen on an express track.“We are going to need them to do a lot,” SU assistant coach Adrian Autry said of Joseph and McCullough. “They know that and the team knows that. When you lose a lot of production and bring in two high-profile guys, the expectation is that they are ready. And they are.”As Syracuse heads into the 2014–15 season, one of its biggest questions is how it’s going to score. The Orange is returning just over 37 percent of its points from last year — the lowest in Jim Boeheim’s 38 years with SU — which places Joseph and McCullough in the middle of an offensive transition while they transition themselves.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIt’s a process that will be different for both freshmen, with Joseph captaining a stalled ship and McCullough polishing and rounding his offensive game while learning different roles. But they both started in Syracuse’s opening scrimmage against Carleton on Nov. 2 and figure to spend more time on the court than not as the No. 23 Orange looks to turn decreased expectations on their head this season.“When I think of the freshmen, I just know they can score,” junior Michael Gbinije said. “For us, when we need to make up for what we lost, we’re going to do it by committee and all the rotational guys are going to chip in.“But having those guys, fresh guys, will only make that easier.”KALEB JOSEPHSyracuse assistant coach Gerry McNamara says it’s unfair to compare Joseph, ESPN’s 50th ranked recruit in the freshman class, to Ennis.Ennis replaced NBA lottery pick Michael Carter-Williams last year and played 35.7 minutes per game, averaged 12.9 points, 5.5 assists and just 1.7 turnovers, and forewent his last three years of college eligibility to be selected by the Phoenix Suns with the 18th pick of the first round in June.Joseph isn’t Ennis and isn’t expecting himself to be. But with the Orange lacking a refined sixth man and the 6-foot-7 Gbinije expected to assume point guard duties when Joseph needs a rest, he is like Ennis.“Tyler did some great things and yeah, it is a hard act to follow,” Joseph said. “But you just have to make it your team, that’s how you make fans and your teammates trust you. I like to run, we’re going to run with me at the point.”Syracuse assistant coach Mike Hopkins sees a combination of Syracuse point guards of the past Jonny Flynn, Michael Carter-Williams and Ennis in Joseph. He likes to push tempo like Flynn, can rebound and stretch the zone like Carter-Williams and has similar poise to Ennis.Vincent Pastore, Joseph’s former coach with the Mass Rivals AAU team, also detailed a wide-ranging skill set.“He wasn’t the kind of player to just do one thing over and over because it worked,” Pastore said. “A lot of guys do that, most guys do that. They find that they can get to the rim or hit a jump shot in a certain place and they go back to that over and over. But Kaleb always made sure he could do everything as a guard.”What Joseph’s coaches and teammates have noticed is his ability to succeed in a pick-and-roll offense. Redshirt junior guard Trevor Cooney’s eyes lit up when talking about how Joseph’s ability to penetrate and draw defenders will create shooting opportunities for him. In SU’s exhibition win over Carleton, Joseph poured in 19 points and opened up the paint for Rakeem Christmas to explode for 13 second-half points.And when Joseph is asked about a hole in his game, he smiles and tilts his head back. Then he squints his eyes and it’s hard to tell if he’s trying to find or pick one.“I need to shoot the 3 better, I’m working on it,” Joseph said.In high school, Joseph headed to the Cushing (Massachusetts) Academy gym before school every morning and made 500 3-pointers. He doesn’t have the time to do that in college, but knows that a polished long-range jump shot would add another dimension to his encompassing game.“The janitors here know me well,” he says, laughing, of the Carmelo K. Anthony Basketball Center. “They really do.”CHRIS MCCULLOUGHMcCullough took a ball at Orange Madness on Oct. 17 and smirked at his teammates.Then the 6-foot-10, 220-pound freshman ran at a girl holding a Jim Boeheim big head, leapt, spread his legs and cleared it clean before throwing a dunk through the rim. The feat didn’t even win the event’s dunk contest — sophomore guard B.J. Johnson did — but it was a flash of the McCullough’s athleticism.“Chris is really a freak,” Cooney said. “I know he wears C.J. (Fair)’s number, but I see a lot of Jerami in him and ability to get to where he wants on the floor and finish strong.”At the Salisbury (Connecticut) School, Brewster (New Hampshire) Academy and then IMG (Florida) Academy, McCullough was a standout player that surfaced as ESPN’s 24th-best player and fifth-best power forward in the Class of 2014. But his high school dominance creates an obstacle of sorts at Syracuse, where he won’t be able to get to the rim with ease and rely on his willowy frame to dominate on both ends.Instead, McCullough is being asked to play with his back to the basket in the paint in the high post and stretch the floor with deep mid-range jump shots, to serve as a liaison between the Orange’s guards and Christmas. Points will have to come from all of that.“The thing I’ve been focusing on most is working on the low post,” McCullough said. “Because I have worked in the high post in the past and know that role … If I can get my post moves down, I’ll be deadly.”To do that, McCullough has been working with Autry and the SU big men so he can play the center position in the team’s base four-around-one set. That spot is usually occupied by Christmas, but the Orange can’t expect one player to play the middle of the zone and offense for full games at a time.That’s where McCullough comes in — with versatility that is both apparent and ready to bloom.“He’s like a pterodactyl,” said Hopkins, stretching his arms out as far as he could. “He can just go up and grab both sides of the rim. It’s very impressive.”McCullough is Syracuse’s tallest player and, in different lineups, he will be an undefined forward as the season starts. The high post gives him an opportunity to establish a jumper and ensuing driving lanes. The low post is a chance to use his length around the rim and draw fouls. A roaming spot on the wing is where he can experiment off the dribble and mix in 3s.Against Carleton, McCullough elevated from the top of the arc and buried a triple. No one could contest it and it swished through the net without nicking the rim.And the next step for McCullough — looking past offense, defense and what he’ll need to do to contribute right away — is for him to be a presence.He’s quiet, almost shy, but demanding the ball will be a huge factor in how big of a factor he’ll be.“I’m not too worried about getting the guys to look to me,” McCullough said. “I think the coaches are going to make it happen, and then I will have make it keep happening.”Fresh OutlookTwelve years ago, Syracuse headed into the 2002–03 season with 41 percent of its scoring from a season before — just 4 percent higher than the number the Orange has now.That team was led by two freshmen — one that plays for the New York Knicks and another that sits on the Syracuse bench — and finished the year clipping down a championship net.Joseph’s not McNamara. McCullough’s not Carmelo Anthony. The prospect of Syracuse winning the second national championship in program history is a slim one and doesn’t rest on Joseph and McCullough’s shoulders.But the freshmen have each been given a set of keys.“I’ve seen a team be led by freshman,” said McNamara, almost wistfully. “This team needs those guys to be locked in.” Commentslast_img read more
