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.

MLB-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- David Price struck out 11 in eight innings in his Blue Jays debut as Toronto topped Minnesota 5-1.

Price surrenders just a run on three hits to improve to 10-4 this season. He was acquired in a deal with Detroit on Thursday.

Price is 4-0 with a 1.16 ERA in four starts against Minnesota this season.

Josh Donaldson led the way offensively for the Jays by going 2-for-4 with a two-run home run.

The two Texas teams are meeting tonight in Arlington as the Rangers entertain the Astros in an AL West matchup. The Astros currently top the division with the third-place Rangers 8 back. Rangers' right-hander Colby Lewis, who has won three straight starts since the All-Star break, is facing Lance McCullers. The Astros have regained first place with wins in seven of their last 10 games while the Angels have dropped six straight to fall four games back of the Astros.

The Angels open a series this evening at home against the Indians. It has been a mediocre season for Cleveland one of the bright spots has been the play of All-Star second baseman Jason Kipnis. A .326 hitter, Kipnis could be headed to the disabled list with a sore shoulder.

Chicago's Cubs are enjoying rare success this year as they are 10 games over .500 for the first time since the end of the 2008 season. This evening the Cubs are in Pittsburgh to face a Pirates team that has the second best record in the National League at 61-43.

The Giants can gain some ground on idle Los Angeles in the National League's West with a win in Atlanta tonight. The Giants start the day 2 1/2 back of the Dodgers.

The rest of the card tonight has Arizona playing in Washington, the Marlins home to the Mets, Tampa Bay in Chicago to face the White Sox, San Diego at Milwaukee, the Rockies entertaining the Mariners and Baltimore at Oakland.

MLB-PIRATES-BURNETT

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Pirates right-hander A.J. Burnett has a strained flexor tendon in his elbow and hopes to return to pitching this season. An MRI revealed the extent of the problem.

Doctors told the 38-year old Burnett to rest for four weeks before he starts throwing again. But he says that is subject to change.

Burnett has gone 1-2 with a 10.13 ERA in three starts since the All-Star break, allowing at least five runs in each outing. That came following a first half in which he went 7-3 with a 2.11 ERA in 18 starts and was selected to the All-Star game for the first time in his 17-year career.

Burnett plans to retire at the end of the season.

NFL-BRONCOS

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- Denver punter Britton Colquitt has agreed to a substantial pay cut in hopes of making the roster. Two years after becoming the league's highest-paid punter, Colquitt has agreed to reduce his contract by $1.4 million. He will now will make $1.6 million this season while his 2016 salary of $3.25 million remains untouched.

Colquitt is the second Broncos veteran to take a pay cut this year. Peyton Manning agreed to a $4 million reduction in his salary, to $15 million. He can earn that back if the Broncos win the Super Bowl.

NBA-HEAT

MIAMI (AP) -- The Miami Heat have signed guard Josh Richardson to his rookie contract. He could earn just more than $2.5 million over the next three years, though the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons are currently structured as partially guaranteed.

Richardson went in the second round of this year's draft, taken at No. 40 overall after a four-year college career at Tennessee.

NHL-SENATORS-HOFFMAN

OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) -- Ottawa forward Mike Hoffman has been awarded a $2 million, one-year contract by an arbitrator. Hoffman was seeking $3.4 million and the Senators were offering $1.75 million.

The 25-year-old player finished sixth in Calder Trophy voting for NHL rookie of the year with 27 goals and 21 assists.
