AUDIO Scott Petrak Talking Manziel, Browns

Written by
The Cleveland Browns have had their struggles as of late. One particular Brown has been under fire as of late...again.
 
Scott Petrak from the Elyria Chronicle Telegram joined the Sam Bourquin Show Tuesday to talk about the latest incident involving Browns backup quarterback Johnny Manziel.
 
Petrak says his thought on the Manziel story is that discipline is still possible after the alleged incident involving his girlfriend. Speculation is out there that Manziel will either be traded or released in the near future.
 
"The Browns are going to follow the league's lead on this situation, and we'll see what happens after that," Petrak said.
 
 
The Browns will travel to St. Louis to take on the Rams this Sunday.

AUDIO Embick, UA Ready For Sparty

Written by
The University of Akron men's soccer team is up to their winning ways once again, and they will look to continue on the good path as they prepare to face Michigan State on Wednesday.
 
Head Coach Jared Embick joined the Sam Bourquin Show to talk about his team heading into their showdown with Sparty.
 
Embick said the Spartans are a good test for his club, especially as the team is riding a six-game winning streak.
 
"We have a good balance between our attack and our defense," Embick said. "We're in a nice groove, we've just found the right combination that gives us a good flow on both sides of the ball."
 
The Zips, who are #5 in the country, will square off with the Spartans from Infocision Stadium-Cub Cadet Field at 7 p.m.

The Akron Public Schools are looking at implementing a new plan to ensure 100% compliance with the OHSAA regulations.

 

This proactive approach stems from a ruling during the 2014-15 school year when the OHSAA had determined the APS committed infractions as it relates to eligibility.


APS Athletic Director Joe Vassalotti joined the Sam Bourquin Show Monday to talk about the plan and how to better educate parents, student-athletes, and others about the eligibility rules.


"We want to be transparent and do things right here and follow the bylaws of the OHSAA as exactly they should be."


Vassalotti says that among other items, building athletic directors will be checking eligibility earlier, as well as making sure student-athletes grade point average is where it should be.


He says by being 100% compliant, student athletes get the concept of doing things the right way.

"We need to follow through to make sure all paperwork is turned in in a timely manner, and ultimately we want them out there competing with their teammates."
