CONVOY — Coming off its first state boys basketball championship, Crestview has now sent the third different member of that team to play at the next level.

Joining teammates Cameron Etzler and Damian Helm, fellow 2014 graduate Tyson Bolenbaugh made official his commitment to continue his athletic career in college. Bolenbaugh announced on Monday his intentions to attend Ohio Northern University and suit up for the Polar Bears men’s basketball team.

For the 6-5 post player, the decision to continue his studies at ONU was an easy one.

“It’s a really good school,” Bolenbaugh noted. “I’m going into civil engineering and they have a really good program there.”

The proximity of the Ada campus was also a draw for Bolenbaugh, who said he wanted to play somewhere that his parents and grandparents could come and watch.

Saints again bring playoff expectations into 2014

NEW ORLEANS — Sean Payton constantly searches for an edge, even if it means fiddling with a training camp formula that has worked rather well for him over the past half-decade.

Payton has coached his club to the playoffs during his past four seasons on the sideline (excluding 2012, when he served his 1-season bounty ban).

All of those began with training camp at Saints headquarters in suburban New Orleans.

This week, camp opens more than 800 miles northeast of the Big Easy, at the posh Greenbrier Resort in mountainous White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.

It marks the first time since 2008, Payton's third season as an NFL head coach, that the Saints have held camp away from home.

CINCINNATI — The Bengals expect cornerback Leon Hall to be ready for the start of training camp and defensive tackle Geno Atkins to join them for full workouts sometime later, bringing one of the NFL's top defenses closer to full strength.

Hall and Atkins are two of Cincinnati's biggest questions heading into camp. Both are starters who mean a lot to a defense that ranked third in the NFL last season.

They're among 13 players who haven't been cleared to fully participate in the Bengals' first practice Thursday. Coach Marvin Lewis expects all of them to be ready for the season opener Sept. 7 at Baltimore.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Carlos Santana homered among his season high-tying four hits and Danny Salazar won in his first start in more than two months as the Cleveland Indians beat the Minnesota Twins 8-2 Tuesday night.

Cleveland won for the fourth time in six games since the All-Star break. Minnesota has lost four out of five.

Santana hit a no-doubt solo shot to right field in the fifth to put the Indians up 4-1. He also had two doubles and a bunt single to beat a defensive shift. Nick Swisher had his first 3-hit game of the year for Cleveland.
