Game of the Week: Dwyer vs. Glades Central

Story by John Evenson / CBS 12 Sports
Our first Game of the Week of the season features a match-up that is highly regarded as the best in the east against the best in the west. Both the Dwyer and Glades Central football teams are well known for consistently producing BCS and NFL stars, and there is no shortage of talent on the teams entering this season. Both teams consider anything less than a State Championship as a disappointment.

In my eyes its a good way to start the season, says Glades Central running back Jerry Jones, because in the playoffs well be playing tougher teams than this, so its a good way to get prepared.

You know theyre gonna come to play, says Glades Central head coach Roosevelt Blackmon, because theyve got a chip on their shoulders.

That chip on Dwyers shoulder in courtesy of a 44-13 Kickoff Classic loss to Miami Central this past Saturday. The Panthers were not happy about giving up 175 yards worth of penalties, and they turned over the ball too much for their liking.

We gave up plays against Miami Central, agrees Dwyer head coach Jack Daniels, two pass plays, and were not like that. We dont usually do that, but Glades Central will exploit you in the same way.

NFL-DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

NEW YORK (AP) -- Acknowledging he "didn't get it right" with a two-game suspension for Ravens running back Ray Rice, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell (guh-DEHL') has announced tougher penalties for players accused of domestic violence. The new sanctions include a six-week suspension for a first offense and at least a year for a second.

In a letter sent to all 32 team owners Thursday and obtained by The Associated Press, Goodell never mentions Rice by name but makes clear references to the Baltimore player who was charged with assault after being caught on video dragging his then-fiancee off a casino elevator.

Goodell told teams to distribute the memo to all players in which he says domestic violence and sexual assault are wrong, illegal and have no place in the NFL.

NFL-JETS-PATTERSON

NEW YORK (AP) -- Dimitri Patterson disputes the New York Jets' version of his mysterious absence. The suspended cornerback says in a statement to ESPN that the Jets' claims that he went missing for 48 hours without notifying the team are "completely false."

Patterson was suspended Tuesday for the rest of the preseason after the Jets say he left the team and went missing last Friday night before the preseason game against the Giants.

BROWNS-GORDON CFL

CLEVELAND (AP) -- A person familiar with Josh Gordon's situation says the suspended wide receiver wants to play in the Canadian Football League, but is prohibited from doing so. Under CFL rules, a player suspended by the NFL and under contract is not eligible to play in Canada. But of the Cleveland Browns released Gordon, he would be able to play elsewhere.

Gordon's suspension for another violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy was upheld. The person familiar with the 23-year-old Pro Bowler's situation said he wanted to play for Calgary, and Gordon asked the Browns for permission.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on Thursday on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the talks.

Gordon is not permitted to be with the Browns during his season-long suspension. His eligibility for reinstatement will be determined after the 2014 season.

NASCAR-STEWART

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Tony Stewart will return to Sprint Cup competition Sunday night at Atlanta Motor Speedway. That will end a three-race hiatus taken after he struck and killed a fellow driver during a dirt-track race.

The three-time NASCAR champion has not raced since his car hit Kevin Ward Jr. at an Aug. 9 sprint car event in New York. Stewart pulled out of the NASCAR race at Watkins Glen the next morning, then skipped races at Michigan and Bristol Motor Speedway.

Stewart, who was described by police as "visibly shaken" the night of Ward's death, has been in seclusion ever since.

USC-SHAW

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Southern California coach Steve Sarkisian (sahr-KEE'-zee-an) says he shares blame with the athletic department for publicizing cornerback Josh Shaw's bogus story about injuring his ankles while saving his nephew from drowning. Sarkisian also said that the suspended Shaw could "potentially" return to the Trojans at some point this season.

The first-year coach also says Shaw still hasn't told the Trojans exactly how he sprained both of his ankles last weekend.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- There are three top-25 college football games tonight including a match-up of rated teams as number-nine South Carolina takes on number-21 Texas A&M. The other contests have number-18 Mississippi taking on Boise State in Atlanta and 19th-rated Arizona State facing Weber State.

MLB-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- Alex Avila hit an RBI single with two out in the bottom of the ninth, giving the Detroit Tigers a 3-2 victory over the New York Yankees. The victory moved Detroit into a tie with idle Seattle for the second wildcard spot in the American League.

Phil Coke improves to 2-2 with the win.

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Billy Hamilton stole his 51st base and the Cincinnati Reds swiped six in all, in a 7-2 win over the Chicago Cubs. Zack Cozart and Todd Frazier each stole twice, and Kristopher Negron added one more.

The Reds stole six times in the first four innings, using six hits and four walks to build a 6-0 lead against loser Jake Arrieta.

Cincinnati stole three in a three-run second inning and two in a three-run fourth.

Cubs rookie Jorge Soler doubled and singled in his second major league game and drove in a run. He homered and singled in his debut on Tuesday.
