Ohio State redshirt-freshman defensive lineman Tracy Sprinkle has been reinstated to the football program an OSU spokesman confirmed to The Lantern Monday evening.OSU coach Urban Meyer also confirmed at a Monday press conference following practice that Sprinkle had been reinstated, but said he will still face additional steps before he plays for the Buckeyes.“He lost his scholarship for the summer, so he’s going to have to pay for his scholarship,” Meyer said. “He’s going to be suspended for the first game. He’s got, every week, community service and a multitude of other things to take care of business before he’ll ever see the field.”Sprinkle was part of the morning session of the opening day of fall camp Monday.Sprinkle was arrested following an early morning fight outside a Lorain, Ohio bar July 5, and was originally charged with rioting, failure to disperse, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of cocaine before pleading no contest to a reduced failure to comply charge July 31.According to the court reports, Sprinkle received a 30-day suspended sentence in addition to a $500 fine and two years of probation. The felony charge for possession of cocaine was dropped.Meyer confirmed that Sprinkle’s reinstatement stemmed from the drug charges being dropped, in addition to his negative test for cocaine. Meyer said if anything had shown up on the drug test, Sprinkle would not have been part of the team going forward.The Elyria High School graduate has never appeared in a game for the Buckeyes after enrolling early and redshirting in 2013.OSU is scheduled to begin the 2014 season against Navy at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore Aug. 30. Kickoff is set for noon.
Junior setter Sanil Thomas sets the ball during the second set of No. 3 Ohio State’s match against No. 8 Penn State on Jan. 28, 2018 in St. John Arena. The Buckeyes defeated the Nittany Lions in straight sets (25-19, 25-15, 25-17) to pick up their fifth win of the season. Credit: Aliyyah Jackson | Senior ReporterThe No. 3 Ohio State Men’s volleyball team (5-2) swept No. 8 Penn State (3-2) in straight sets, winning 3-0 Sunday night at St. John Arena.Head coach Pete Hanson said prior to the game, his team did not know what type of line-up to expect from Penn State due to an injured Nittany Lion, but that the Buckeyes still prepared for a tough match in the days leading up.“The last few days in practice, it was a lot about our blocking and our defense in terms of, when we got Penn State into trouble, could we win that point by blocking them?” Hanson said. “Could we win that point by digging the ball and then letting Sanil set a hitter and kill that ball?” Ohio State came out aggressive and big on the net in the first set, setting the tone for the rest of the match by winning 25-19. As a team, the Buckeyes hit .500, swinging hard from the middle and wing positions, while committing only two service errors in the first set. Powerful serves by Ohio State challenged Penn State’s defense and forced out of system plays for the Nittany Lions. Ohio State redshirt junior middle blocker Blake Leeson stayed ready on the net, putting down at least three of Penn State’s overpasses. Redshirt freshman opposite Jake Hanes and senior outside hitter Maxime Hervoir had seven and five kills, respectively, in the first set, to contribute to the Buckeyes’ effective offense. Senior outside hitter Nicolas Szerszen had five of Ohio State’s seven digs in the set. Ohio State showed improved stats in both blocks and digs from previous matches. Szerszen said the Buckeyes have been spending time in practice trying to improve in blocking and controlling the ball for stronger counter-attacks.“We want to serve tough. When we serve tough the other team struggles and then it’s easier for us to get blocks and digs,” Szerszen said. “It’s really frustrating when we do that and then we don’t get those blocks or digs and counter-attack on them. The first couple matches we struggled a little bit with that.”The Buckeyes got off to a slower start in the second set. They battled Penn State point-by point until the two were tied at 14 when Szerszen scored a kill for the side-out and served for an eight-point run. After a service error, Penn State got the ball back, but lost it in the next play when Leeson put the ball down for Ohio State. Though Penn State provided stiff competition for the first half of the second set, Ohio State’s aggressive offense picked back up in the second half, shutting down the Nittany Lions. Penn State redshirt sophomore setter Luke Braswell, named last week’s EIVA player of the week for averaging 9.86 assists per set and helping his team hit an overall hitting percentage of .522, had only four assists in the second set. The team hit a .409 in the second set with six kills and six attacking errors. Penn State lost the second set by 10 points, 25-15.Ohio State started the third set with a large presence on the net, a stark contrast to Penn State’s diminished energy. The Buckeyes hit a .520, with which Penn State could not keep up. The Nittany Lions raised their hitting percentage to .125, but had only eight kills. Ohio State finished the set quickly, beating Penn State 25-17 and sealing the match victory.Topping the kill leaderboard were Hanes (16), Hervoir (10) and Szerszen (9). Ohio State junior setter Sanil Thomas had fewer assists than usual, but still topped the leaderboard with 29. Szerszen’s 10 digs were the most in the match and Leeson finished first in blocks with four.
Arsenal manager Unai Emery insists his team’s stuttering start to the season won’t stop him from overhauling their style of play.The Gunners have lost their first two games of the season to Manchester City and Chelsea, and the former Paris Saint-Germain manager has come under heavy criticism for changing the club’s style of play.Where Wenger demanded Arsenal played an all-out attacking system that often left them vulnerable at the back, Emery favours a high-tempo pressing game.The Spanish boss also prefers his goalkeeper and defenders to start moves with passing from the back, even when under pressure from opponents.This has led to Arsenal putting themselves in difficult positions at times, but Emery is adamant the issues are just teething problems that will soon resolve themselves.“In our process, we are going 38 matches against all the teams — whether you are playing againstManchester City, it’s the same as if you’re playing against West Ham on Saturday,” he said, as quoted by France24.Merson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“There are three points on this game. It’s clear that every game demands different things tactically.”“After the first two matches, we have two defeats and we need to win this match against West Ham.”West Ham’s visit gives Jack Wilshere a chance to prove Emery was wrong to let him leave.“I spoke with him for 15 minutes here in Colney before he left,” Emery said.“The first thing for me is I have respect for his career here. And then, he chooses what the best was for him in his future.“On Saturday, I know that here, the supporters like him and have this respect also. I think there is a good reception for him here.
Paris Saint-Germain boss Thomas Tuchel is starting to worry over their lack of progress in the transfer window given the club’s recent injury blows.The Ligue 1 champions have sustained heavy losses this month in star duo Neymar and Marco Verratti.The pair are doubts for next month’s first leg against Manchester United at Old Trafford in their last-16 stage Champions League clash.Currently, it remains unclear just how long Neymar will be sidelined for after sustaining a new metatarsal injury in PSG’s 2-0 Coupe de France win over Strasbourg last Wednesday.While Verratti is also doubtful due to an ankle injury and, with Adrien Rabiot suspended from the team, PSG are lacking options in the midfield.Due to this, Napoli midfielder Allan and Zenit star Leandro Paredes have both linked with transfers to the French capital.Speaking after PSG’s 4-1 win over Rennes on Sunday, however, a clearly frustrated Tuchel urged the club board to get a move on with the transfers.“We’re waiting for him [Paredes],” said Tuchel, according to SportsMax.Opinion: Neymar needs to apologize to PSG’s supporters Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 After such a dramatic summer during the transfer window, Neymar truly needs to apologize to all the PSG supporters this weekend.When Neymar finished last…“I am told it is settled but here is not there. I’m worried. We need players!“Maybe even an offensive player since Neymar is injured. We are waiting for Leandro but he is not here.”“It was already like this last summer but it is more serious with the wounds of Verratti and Neymar.“We cannot do a miracle. There are missing players in the middle. It’s January 27! It’s almost finished.”He added: “What can I say? We have goals in this club,”“To reach it, to have ambition in the club and for my players, we must recruit players.”Edinson Cavani struck twice to send PSG on their way to a 4-1 win against Rennes with Angel Di Maria and Kylian Mbappe being the other scorers on Sunday.The Parisians remain 13 points clear at the top of Ligue 1 from Lille OSC and will take a trip to Lyon for their next match this Sunday.

By Brittney Johnson, AFRO InternThe Queen’s Girl Rep is a two-part series running at Everyman Theatre in Baltimore. The first part, Queen’s Girl in the World, is a bold and riveting play written by award-winning playwright Caleen Sinnette Jennings. It is a story about a Black girl coming of age in the context of her Queens, NY neighborhood where she lived with protective middle class parents and the predominantly Jewish private school she attended in Greenwich Village. Everyman Theater resident company actress Dawn Ursula is the leading lady in Queens Girl in the World, part one of a two-play repertoire running through June 23. (Photo: violadavis.net)The one-woman show captures a young Jennings’ experience of self exploration and discovery in 1960’s America, becoming adaptable to both environments by excelling in school, and still staying humble and grounded in her own community. Part two of the repertoire, Queens Girl in Africa, continues to chronicle the fish-out-of-water experiences of the of bright-eyed, brown-skinned Jacqueline Marie Butler’ who is faced with mastering “code-switching” after her parents leave the country during the heyday of the Civil Right movement for a life in Nigeria.Jennings talk to the AFRO about the inspiration behind her remarkable play and how Queen’s Girl in the World is a play that will resonate with audiences across the lifespan. Caleen JenningsAFRO: Why did you decide to write this play and the importance behind it?Caleen Jennings: “Well, what I want your readers to know is that person that is nagging you to write about your life, about your family history, and the fabulous stories you tell, listen to them and do it, because this wouldn’t have happened if a friend of mine hadn’t of said, ‘You need to write this down.’”AFRO: Tell us more about Dawn Ursula and what she does in the play?Jennings: Well, the fabulous Dawn Ursula who is in ‘Queens Girl in the World’ dawn plays about 15 different characters in this one-woman show that is loosely based on the events of my life.AFRO: Why would you suggest that we get young women to see this play?Jennings: “Well, the memory that is most vivid for me as an adolescent is that you feel that number one nobody understands you and number two you don’t fit in anywhere The irony is as you grow up is that you realize that, “Oh, everyone feels that way,” but that’s a natural part of adolescence. It’s a very painful and a very difficult time, but it can also be a time where you often feel silly. A time where you often feel ‘I don’t know what’s going on,’ where you feel naïve. A time where you can be bullied and taken advantage of. This is a story of a young woman who comes into herself through these various experiences that she has, how she kind of just weathers the storm. And in the end, is beginning to put the pieces together. So, I think young women may identify with having been in that stage or may be in that stage now.”AFRO: What can people expect to leave with and talk about after seeing Queens Girl in the World?Jennings: “I think you can expect to talk about, well People have told me that they have seen themselves reflected in the characters people say, “Oh, that dad is just like my dad or the mother is just like my mother.” So, I think you’ll see pieces of yourself in the story, and I think you’ll also begin to think about the history that you are living right now. One of the things that was amazing for me I think one of the amazing things for me is, I was just living my life and now looking back on it I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh I was a part of one of those major historical moments.’ Well you are a part of those moments right now and I hope that’ll get people talking about when I look back on this time what will I remember in terms of my life and its historical context.” AFRO: Is there anything else you’d like to share with AFRO readers about how your life has shaped what they can expect to experience in the theater?Jennings: “I spent a lot of time mediating quietly. Taking myself back to my bedroom at 8 Laird Place, Ibadan, Nigeria in Spring 1968. In my short lifetime, I had experienced the assassinations of Malcolm X, John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., and Robert F. Kennedy, and countless African leaders. I remember feeling as if the earth was spinning. I felt surrounded by death, destruction, and corruption. Racism, tribalism, xenophobia, poverty, and violence made me feel frightened and powerless.”The play will be running from May 7-Jun 23 at Everyman Theatre on 315 W. Fayette St. Baltimore, Md.Managing Editor, Tiffany Ginyard contributed to this story.
