Athlete of the Week: Chris Favoroso

By Matt Lincoln/CBS12

JENSEN BEACH, Fla. - Chris Favoroso is a two-time wrestling champion, the first one in the history of one of the best high school programs in South Florida.  So he's a no-brainer choice for the CBS12 Athlete of the Week.

Favoroso moved to Florida from New Jersey in the 8th grade. It was not by chance he wound up at Jensen Beach.

"We picked here for wrestling," says Favoroso.  "No one works harder than us."

Coach Tom McMath has had 5 state champions at Jensen, but no one quite like Chris.

"You can't teach fight," says McMath. "From the start, I knew he had that in him."

Chris's promise for greatness has turned into results. He won a state championship as a Sophomore in the 170 weight class and repeated as a state champion last week at 195. 

Also a star football player, Favoroso has his eyes set on a big senior year - and the rare wrestling feat of a three-peat. Athlete of the Week: Chris Favoroso

NFL-BRADY WINS

NEW YORK (AP) -- U.S. District Judge Richard Berman has ruled in favor of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and erased his four-game suspension for "Deflategate."

The surprise ruling came after more than one month of failed settlement talks between the NFL and its players' union. Many legal experts believed the judge was merely pressuring the sides to settle when he criticized the NFL's handling of the case at two hearings in August.

In his ruling Berman came out forcefully in Brady's favor, maligning the NFL for its handling of the scandal that erupted after the AFC championship game in January, when officials discovered during the first half that Brady used underinflated footballs. New England beat the Indianapolis Colts 45-7 then won the Super Bowl two weeks later.

An NFL investigation led to Brady's suspension, which Commissioner Roger Goodell (guh-DEHL') upheld.

Berman's ruling does not necessarily end the dispute. The league can appeal.

It all means Brady is eligible to play for the Patriots in their season opener.
