Every student-athlete knows that at some point the cheering and athletics competitions will end. Adidas Superstar Black Australia . Making connections before graduation is important so they can use their college degrees for a career outside of athletics competition. South Carolina senior softball student-athlete Kaylea Snaer and junior tennis student-athlete Thomas Mayronne were fortunate enough to participate in the first SEC Corporate Career Tour held over a three day stretch in Atlanta ahead of the 25th SEC Football Championship Game.I think it was one of the most valuable experiences Ive had since Ive been at the University of South Carolina, said Mayronne, who is studying Sport and Entertainment Management. We met with the higher-ups from Chick-fil-A, Boys & Girls Club of America, CNN/Turner Broadcasting System and Jackson Spalding. We toured their facilities, talked to their top executives about their business strategies, how they run their business compared to others, and what they center their organizations culture around.My mind was blown, said Snaer, a psychology major. Ive never been exposed to how many different kinds of jobs there are in corporate America. Overall, it was a very inviting and open atmosphere. I thought I always knew what I wanted to do, but this trip influenced me to take a step back and see what I am passionate about in other areas.Also included on the agenda were presentations from Serviam Partners President Randy Hain and former SEC student-athletes Ben Troupe and Josh Foliart on leadership and life after sports. The executives were able to offer advice about getting into their careers, and with several former student-athletes who were employees of those businesses on hand, the current student-athletes were certainly intrigued.At CNN, we met a panel of former athletes in all kinds of different jobs and how they got there, Snaer said. I never realized it could take 10 years to get where you want to be for the next 30 years. Just being around the other student-athletes was great, too. Theyre all very goal-oriented.Getting perspectives from former student-athletes who are now in the corporate world was extremely valuable, Mayronne said. They gave us their personal stories in how they transferred their abilities in athletics so they could be successful in business. Everybody had really good questions, and they told us things to look out for, and how we can better find opportunities and internships. Being student-athletes teaches us a lot of skills we can offer employers. Kaylea Snaer The student-athletes were able to put their resumes in the hands of what could be future employers as well.Just meeting the higher ups and getting their personal stories was amazing, Mayronne said. Hearing the story about how (the late) S. Truett Cathy started Chick-fil-A and where they are now, was just incredible. Its still based on the same values and principles as when they opened their first restaurant. That was huge for me because he set out to do business a certain way, and he never changed, regardless of whatever pressure he had coming in from the outside.After a whirlwind three days of meetings and presentations, each had something unique that stuck with them the most.My favorite part was really just getting to know the people, Mayronne said. Getting the experience to network and make connections is going to be really important down the road.Glenn Jackson is the co-founder of Jackson Spalding, which is a huge marketing communications agency, Snaer said. Just being able to meet him and find out that nobody there really has a job title was interesting because they made it feel like everybodys opinion mattered. After we were done, he came to every single person and shook our hands. I was so impressed that a co-founder of a major company like that was coming down and thanking us for being there. He gave me his business card and told me to email my resume because they were looking for interns.While this was a great opportunity, those who attended would like for more of their fellow student-athletes to have a similar experience.You dont often get opportunities to speak with corporate executives like this, Snaer said. Being student-athletes teaches us a lot of skills we can offer employers, such as working with a team, resolving conflict, working hard, and wanting to compete in everything we do. So its good to have an experience where you can learn how to apply those skills or learn how that translates into a job.We all talked about it before we left, Mayronne said. This is the first time theyve done it, and they want to expand it. There were only 26 of us from the whole Southeastern Conference that had a chance to go. We definitely need to get more people involved in this. Not everyone gets to meet important people from Fortune 1000 companies and pick their brains. It was invaluable. NMD Buy Australia .

Its a given in the Premier League.The early goal is hurting us at the moment. We conceded an early goal in our last game, almost exactly the same time, and then you are chasing the game. It allows Tottenham to sit in and pick you off and use their power and pace. We found it difficult to cope with that, and they were very good on the break, as they have been all year. Defensively we need to tighten up a hell of a lot better than the last few games. We know what we need to do and well address that and be better next time out.

WASHINGTON -- Stephen Strasburg so badly wanted to start the Washington Nationals first game after the break that he gave up the chance to pitch in the All-Star Game in his hometown of San Diego.His 13th victory was a reward for that.Strasburg allowed one run and three hits with six strikeouts in eight masterful innings as the Nationals beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-1 on Friday night.Strasburg (13-0) has won 16 consecutive decisions dating to September, a franchise record for starting pitchers.He got probably some grief by not pitching in the All-Star Game, but he was doing what he thought was best for us and for him, manager Dusty Baker said. Boy, that sets the tone for the rest of the series.Strasburg has allowed a total of five hits in three starts since coming off the disabled list July 3. Catcher Wilson Ramos said this is the best he has ever seen Strasburg pitch, and eight innings matched the right-handers season high.At the plate, Strasburg drove in what turned out to be the winning run on a sacrifice bunt attempt in the seventh inning.

Center fielder Michael Taylor broke the game open with a two-run homer, his seventh of the season, off Feliz.Pittsburgh starter Francisco Liriano (5-9) got the loss after allowing three runs and five hits in six-plus innings.I thought he pitched a very competitive ballgame, Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. Its good to see him move it deeper into the game.Competitive wasnt enough against the Nationals lineup, which was strong even without Daniel Murphy, who was scratched with a sore left hamstring. Robinson, who didnt learn he was starting unntil batting practice, went 2-for-4. Vapormax Scontate. Big Robinson, hes always ready, Baker said. He got some big hits for us, he tied the game up off Liriano and then he got another hit that started a rally. Clint has been a life saver for us and especially in [Ryan Zimmermans] absence.The Nationals keep chugging along atop the National League East in large part because of starting pitching. Strasburg has been the best, and on Friday, he lowered his ERA to 2.51.I felt pretty good, said Strasburg, who threw 69 of 105 pitches for strikes. Im trying to go out there with the same game plan, the same plan of attack and focus on executing pitches.TRAINERS ROOMPirates: RHP Ryan Vogelsong, who has been out since May 23, when he was hit by a pitch and suffered three facial fractures, threw six scoreless innings in a rehab start for Double-A Altoona. ...

Australian Tyler Wright can still claim her maiden surfing world title next week in France, despite being beaten by main rival Courtney Conlogue in the final of the Cascais Pro. Nike Vapormax Dk .Conlogues victory on Wednesday meant Wrights lead at the top of the title race was narrowed to 5,250 points, however that stretches out to 6,600 once the competitions convoluted system is applied.Surfers drop their worst two results of the year at the end of the season, and given Wright has won four of the eight events, the odds are very much in her favour.If she wins the final in France, she will claim the title before the season-ending Maui event, regardless of where Conlogue finishes. However a number of scenarios could also lead to her claiming the top gong.Wright would also win the title if she reaches the semi-finals and Conlogue fails to take out the event, or if she reached the quarter-finals and the American didnt go beyond the semi-finals.I know I am in a title race, but for me, I know what I can do and what I want to do, Wright said.Wright was narrowly beaten by 0.74 points by the USAs Conlogue in the final in Portugal on Wednesday, falling just short with a ride of 5.93 in the final minutes.The 22-year-old will now head to Landes in south-western France where she has won for the past two years and reached the final in 2012 and 2013.I have never been more psyched on surfing or doing heats and the amount that I am learning, Wright said.I have the same goal going into France - to win every heat and win every final.I am going to take what Ive learned out of this one with dealing with beach breaks and everything like that into France and start it all over again.

Let us know which side youre on for UFC 167 use the hashtag #TeamLynch or #TeamJC on Twitter. Its encouraging that a current player and a recent retiree have called for an overhaul of the law governing the dimensions of a cricket bat. However, I dont understand why both Josh Hazlewood and Ricky Ponting would agree that the change should only apply to bats used in Test matches.The shorter forms of the game also need to be a fair contest between bat and ball, unless theyre viewed more as entertainment, rather than being worthy of carrying the term cricket in their name.For more than a decade it has made no sense that bats keep improving dramatically while boundary dimensions are being reduced. This combination could only be satisfactory to a connoisseur of clouting or a sadist who had it in for bowlers.As the improvements in bat-making started to really take hold, it became obvious that they were changing the balance of the game in favour of batsmen. Edges that in the past would have been a catching opportunity for second or third slip were suddenly carrying two-thirds of the way to the boundary. This should have sounded alarm bells for lawmakers.The improvement in bats also coincided with a shift to a more conservative mentality in field placements. While this was at first a trend among captains who, influenced by the ubiquity of short-form cricket, erred on the side of containment, it became an obsession when point- and square-leg fieldsmen were regularly posted on the boundary from the reasonably early overs of a Test innings. By then the alarm bells in the halls of officialdom should have been deafening.The more recent improvements in willow manufacture mean the ball is now pinging off the bat at such speeds that bowlers and umpires are in grave danger of being seriously injured. When an umpire starts wearing a helmet or a protective shield on his arm, it shouldnt be difficult to interpret their view. Hopefully it wont be the gut-wrenching sound of sirens that finally influences officials into changing the law.Id only thought of the danger posed to bowlers and umpires in matches. However, former Australian wickketkeeper Ian Healy made the excellent point that young net bowlers engaged to prepare T20 batsmen were even more exposed to the danger posed by batsmen wielding lethal weapons. Vapormax Hvid Danmark. . This could also apply at junior cricket levels, where there are large variations in the size and strength of players.One of the primary duties of crickets lawmakers is to maintain a balance - like an evenly weighted pair of scales - between batsmen and bowlers. When the balance is too much in favour of batsmen, it usually results in disgruntled bowlers fighting back by resorting to such drastic tactics as chucking or Bodyline. A good rule of thumb for lawmakers in maintaining that balance is, the mishits should by and large stay within the field of play. If a bowler is good enough to induce a mishit, there should be a reward; if theres no fielder in the vicinity, or there is but he drops the catch, then its bad planning or bad luck, but a mistimed shot shouldnt finish in the stands.When limited-overs cricket first captured the publics imagination, the points of excitement stressed (apart from a tense finish) were improvements in fielding and running between wickets. There wont be much brilliant fielding or the daring Virat Kohli-style of running between wickets if the bulk of the runs are scored in boundary hits.Administrators who believe a high proportion of fans crave sixes should consider the motive of those patrons. I liken six-craving fans to guys who frequent an establishment because the waitresses are topless. When another bar opens down the road shortly afterwards, with waitresses who are even more skimpily attired, they quickly shift their patronage.Its good that modern cricketers are clamouring for a change to the law regarding bat dimensions. However, itll be an even more effective clarion call when it is a current batsman who asks that changes to bat size should occur in all forms of the game. ' ' '

WASHINGTON -- Gio Gonzalez is picking the right time to pitch his best baseball of the season.With just a few weeks left in regular-season play, the veteran left-hander has thrown well in his last few starts for the Washington Nationals. He is 2-0 with a 3.06 ERA in his last three starts.He will take the mound Tuesday night at home to face the Atlanta Braves, who will start right-hander Williams Perez.And Braves interim manager Brian Snitker knows that Perez will have to contend with rookie Trea Turner, has been a spark plug in the leadoff spot for the Nationals.Turner went 3-for-4 and drove in three runs in a 6-4 win over the Braves on Monday.He is something else, Snitker said. He is a very, very special young player. He is making the most of this opportunity that is for sure. He is tough.Turner, now hitting .343, has been grateful for his opportunity. All three of his hits Monday came with two strikes.Put the ball in play, he said of his two-strike approach. I have an idea what they are going to throw me. With two strikes it is hard to guess. I try to see the ball and put the bat on it. I would rather swing a close pitch than take it for strike three.Teammate Gonzalez is 10-9 this season with a 4.14 ERA and is 0-0 with a 2.31 ERA against the Braves in two starts this season. He has won at least 10 games in every season, when he pitched for the Oakland As.Gonzalez was acquired in a trade with Oakland before the 2012 season and that year he won 21 games for the Nationals.

All but Robinson got a hit.Thats what theyre here for, Nationals manager Dusty Baker said of his bench. Ive always said you cant win with just your regulars. Youve got to get those other guys some opportunities to play. We feel very confident, especially for a short period of time, that those guys can do the job. ... The circle is not completed unless youre dependent on everybody in that circle, so everybody in that circle is important. That was a big day today, to win that game.The guys feel good about themselves, the regulars got a day off, get a good night sleep. (Bryce Harper) said it best, sittingnext to me in the dugout.

SANDY, Utah -- Real Salt Lake has found the perfect offensive rhythm and opponents are paying the price for it. Fake Adidas NHL Jerseys . Salt Lake has a reputation for possessing a stingy defence. In recent matches, it also has found ways to beat teams on offence, too. "Were punishing teams when we get our chances," RSL midfielder Kyle Beckerman said. "When you score and you change the game, a team cant come in here and sit back. They got to come out now." Seattle learned that lesson first hand. Beckerman scored a goal right before halftime and Robbie Findley added another immediately after it to lift Salt Lake to a 2-0 victory over the Sounders on Saturday night. The win vaulted RSL (9-5-3) into first place into the Western Conference. Seattle (6-5-3) lost for just the second time in its past nine MLS matches. Salt Lake has scored two or more goals in five consecutive matches and has 27 goals in its last 10 games across all competitions, registering eight wins during that stretch. Beckerman put Salt Lake on the board in the 41st minute, scoring on a deflected free kick by Javier Morales. The ball bounced off a defender and took a hop out to Beckerman on the right side of the box. He cleaned it up perfectly, sliding a half-volley under to the crossbar. Seattle had no shots on goal and did not create a single shot period during the first half. "This is our first shutout in a few games," RSL defender Nat Borchers said. "We put that on the bulletin board and really made that a point to get that tonight." It only took 40 seconds of the second half for Findley to close the door on the Sounders, giving RSL a two-goal lead in the 46th minute on a second-chance goal after his initial shot was saved. Findley tracked down a deep pass from Morales and fired a right-footer just outside the 6-yard box. Seattle goalkeeper Michael Gspurning cleared the ball out to Khari Stephenson, who flicked ahead to Findley again. He launched another shot just outside the right upper corner of the box. This time, he threaded the ball inside the left post. "We talk about being a consistent team and competing with the best teams in the league," Seattle forward Eddie Johnson said. "We cant come out and give up a goal 40 seconds into the half. Theres too much experience on this team. Theres no excuses." The Sounders struggled to mount a comeback because they could do hardly anything against RSLs stiff defence. They did not create their first shot of the game until Mario Martinez curled the ball from the right side of the box at Salt Lake goalkeeper Nick Rimando in the 73rd minute. Seattle finished the match with a total of two shots. RSL tallied 17 shots, putting six on the net. More concerning than the lack of shots for Seattle coach Sigi Schmid was that the Sounders mentally packed it in after Findleys goal. "Goals change games," Schmid said. "From that point on in the second half, I thought they pretty much dominated us. At that point, I didnt think we made smart decisions or played well. And they were the better team for sure." RSL coach Jason Kreis cautioned his players against letting their rise to the top the Western Conference go to their heads. "Young players need to be concerned with one thing: getting better every day and giving their best in training sessions," Kreis said. "They dont need to concern themselves with how many points this team has at all. If theyre doing that, theyre certainly not going to be in the right mindset to further their game."
