Congratulations to Jordan McCann for the honor of being selected to play in the Blue/Grey All-American Bowl.

This is definitely not a common occurrence for us here in Big “D” to get a high school football player — heck, ANY football player! — selected to play in the other “Big D.”

Maybe I can … oh, never mind!


To borrow a (para)phrase from that pretty decent late playwright, William Shakespeare — whomever he REALLY is! — should Reds’ fans wonder if it is time “to panic or not to panic?”

The offense has been quite, well, offensive lately.

MIAMI — After struggling throughout his career against the Miami Marlins, Matt Latos final beat his hometown team.

Latos (3-3), who hails from nearby Coconut Creek, beat the Marlins for the first time in eight career starts while allowing one run in seven innings to help the Cincinnati Reds to a 5-2 win Friday night.

"I battled," Latos said. "I had to bear down when I needed to. I made some good pitches and the offense picked me up today. A good game all around."

BEREA — As his teammates sweated through another training camp practice, Josh Gordon was in a New York office building where his career — and Cleveland's season — were in jeopardy.

Gordon met Friday with NFL officials to appeal a possible indefinite suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. Gordon's attorney, Maurice Suh, and other members of his legal team were expected to argue that Gordon tested positive for marijuana because of second-hand smoke, a defense they planned to augment with witnesses.

No decision on Gordon is expected for several days and the Browns are keeping their fingers crossed the outcome will be favorable.

CANTON — Michael Strahan is pleased to know he is scheduled to go last during the Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremonies.

That means the former New York Giants star pass-rusher won't be the first to break down in tears once the 2014 7-member class is inducted today.

"I am not going to be the first one to crack," Strahan pronounced with a familiar gap-toothed grin Friday. "But it'll be interesting. I just told the guys, 'It's OK. If you're going to cry, this is the opportunity to cry where nobody can say anything to you'."
