first_imgDuke Williams, here with Sammie Coates (18) has been dismissed from the Auburn football team.Duke Williams, here with Sammie Coates (18) has been dismissed from the Auburn football team.As crazy as this sounds, Duke Williams and Auburn are better off without each other.Williams wasn’t playing with the same fire and energy that electrified Auburn’s offense last season. He didn’t give off the same spirited vibe that made him so entertaining to watch.Auburn was clearly having issues with him on and off the field. Auburnsports.com has reported that Williams was involved in “an off-the-field incident at a local nightclub” this past weekend.That appears to have been the final straw for Auburn, but the football program and Williams were no longer on the same page and when arguably your best player becomes a distraction, it’s time to part ways.“When individuals fail to meet the expectations of our program, there has to be consequences,” said Auburn coach Gus Malzahn in a statement. “I gave D’haquille the chance to prove himself. I am disappointed that it did not work out.”I said before the first game that Duke Williams wouldn’t make it the whole season. He doesn’t think rules apply to him.— David Mobley (@DavidMobley_) October 6, 2015//platform.twitter.com/widgets.jsThere is always more behind a statement. Way more. Williams will have his say to explain his side about his time at Auburn, but for now, I can only shake my head at a situation that went from bad to worse when it appeared so promising just a year ago.Williams had a chance to write the following story: Kid overcomes a rough life to reach super stardom. Now he’ll have to continue that journey elsewhere and has made the road far more difficult to [email protected]@FootballAU What’s the other side of story on releasing Duke Williams?!?! It gotta be another side! #auburn#auburntigers— B.Day (@MrConsistent21) October 6, 2015//platform.twitter.com/widgets.jsYou’d think Williams had everything to play for this season. Top 10 draft pick. Huge contract. Dream to play in the NFL. National championship. SEC championship.Instead, he didn’t play like an All-American and future high-first round pick should. Williams caught just 12 passes for 147 yards and a touchdown in five games this season. To put that in perspective, Williams caught nine passes for 154 yards and a touchdown in his Auburn debut last season against Arkansas.At this moment, this doesn’t looked good for him, but Williams will get a shot to play at the next level and can now put all his energies into preparing for the NFL combine. This isn’t the ideal way to go about it. He’ll miss the structure of playing for a team, but based on how things were going at Auburn, he wasn’t responding well to it, either.So maybe he’s better off doing his own thing realizing if he fails, it’s all on him, not anyone else. His draft stock has taken a ginormous hit, but he’ll wind up in someone’s NFL camp. Trust and believe that.Has someone ever killed their draft stock without getting arrested as quickly as Duke Williams— Jordan Ney (@jsney20) October 6, 2015//platform.twitter.com/widgets.jsI’m sure his influence in the locker room was significant at Auburn because he has an engaging personality. I keep going back to the YouTube video of him motivating his teammates at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College before a game.Williams had the locker room buzzing with his pep talk.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RB_vk2RQ29k&w=420&h=315%5DNow take that same guy with the wrong attitude. That can create division in the locker room. Not saying he caused that, but Williams was a leader on that team. If he wasn’t motivated or driven, that can rub off on younger players. I noticed him after the overtime win over Jacksonville State laughing and joking as if Auburn had won by three touchdowns. Didn’t look good at all.When you really think about it, Williams didn’t come to Auburn to play two years. He wanted to make his first year at Auburn his last and move forward to the NFL.Then he got hurt. Williams injured his knee against Texas A&MThen he got in trouble. Williams got suspended for the Outback Bowl.Then he started tweeting about transferring in the spring.Duke Williams being dismissed is a huge step as far as discipline..Got mad respect for him and wish him the best!!— Coach Jay (@Jerrious2) October 6, 2015//platform.twitter.com/widgets.jsWilliams wanted to be in the NFL, not college. I can only speculate this because Auburn never made him available to the media this season. What I do know is Williams missed six practices for what Malzahn categorized as a disciplinary issue. He clearly wasn’t following rules, but Auburn brought him back and he started in the season opener against Louisville.However, Malzahn put Williams on a zero tolerance policy, something I’m not a fan of. If you have to take that course of action to keep a player in line, that player, to me, is too far gone to reel back in.Auburn isn’t without fault on this. Malzahn didn’t appear to do enough to get him the ball. Williams had his share of drops, which shouldn’t be the case for someone of his talent, but there were times he was open and didn’t get the ball. He got tattooed a couple of times going over the middle as well.lol duke williams is gone like it makes a difference when there’s no one to throw to him anyway— have a good tim (@turbojunker) October 6, 2015//platform.twitter.com/widgets.jsThe Tigers have changed starting quarterbacks from Jeremy Johnson to Sean White and haven’t committed to White moving forward as Auburn is on a bye week before playing next Thursday night at Kentucky. The offense has become one dimensional. Now it probably wouldn’t be if the quarterback play was better, but Williams hasn’t done his part either to help the offense.Last week, I asked Malzahn what was going with him and specifically questioned if Williams was engaged. Malzahn indicated the latter wasn’t a problem. He said Williams was facing double coverage early in the Mississippi State game, but said he had figure out a way to get him the ball.“There’s nothing that Duke’s doing wrong or he needs to do better,” Malzahn said.A week later, Williams is no longer at Auburn. As crazy as this sounds, it’s for the best for both.Auburn’s football ticket woes raise major questionslast_img read more

first_imgJunior National Lawn Tennis Champion Heimraj Resaul has reaped the reward of balancing sports and academic by being granted a scholarship from the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia, United States. Resaul, who left Guyana yesterday to begin his stint, will further his studies in biomedical science while also suiting up for the University’s men’s tennis team. The 17-year old was recruited by the University’s Head Men’s Tennis Coach Nick Margiasso who announced the signing of the former Marian Academy student to make up his first recruiting class of 2019. The coach was drawn to his natural qualities. “Heimraj will be our youngest addition to the men’s team and is exactly the kind of talented, positive, coachable guy that will add to our programme on the court. In the classroom, he will represent the University even better,” Coach Margiasso said of Resaul’s pedigree.  Prior to his departure, Resaul told Stabroek Sport that he is prepared both mentally and physically for the rigors of managing the student/athlete offer. “I’ll be playing tennis five days a week. I’m as ready as I’ll ever be. I believe that over the years I’ve matured as both a student and a tennis player preparing me for this moment,” he explained. According to the young athlete, balancing academics and the metamorphosis into a champion athlete came naturally from the time he took up both.  “I pretty much grew up bouncing between both tennis and school. Since I was younger, it was always school during the day then tennis in the afternoon. So, over time I developed the ability to balance it well.”Resaul represented Guyana at a number of international tournaments and tasted success at the junior level. Those experiences will likely land him in good stead when he gets the opportunity to taste his first collegiate action after the University opens up its 2019-20 season at the College of New Jersey’s Lions Kickoff Tournament on August 31. The young man, who also harbours ambitions of going pro, plays for the Sheltez Tennis Club locally and is coached by Shelly Daly –Ramdyhan and Leyland Leacock. Resaul is currently the number one ranked male junior player in the country and has won the national under 18-title twice in 2016 and 2018.last_img read more
