A former Florida State University star football player will not be able to use the state’s “Stand Your Ground” defense in his first-degree murder trial, a judge ruled Wednesday.

NBC affiliate WPTV-TV reported the decision after Travis Rudolph, 26, walked into a West Palm Beach courtroom last week to testify at a hearing. Rudolph faces one count of first-degree murder and three counts of attempted first-degree murder for the Lake Park shooting in April 2021.

Rudolph appeared in a courtroom in November 2021 when hearings began, where his lawyers argued Rudolph used self-defense after ‘fearing for his life’ and claimed he was coerced into open fire following a confrontation outside his home.

At the November hearing, Rudolph’s ex-girlfriend, Dominique Jones, said she argued with him before the shooting after finding out he had cheated on her. A police affidavit reportedly said one of the four victims told police he had been in contact with Jones.

The man and three others drove to Rudolph’s home where he was “immediately combative and confrontational” according to the affidavit.

After physically fighting for several minutes, Rudolph reportedly returned home and grabbed a gun and ran behind the car before shooting him.

One person at the scene was injured and taken to hospital. A passenger in the car was shot and killed while the driver and another passenger were uninjured.

Detectives said witnesses told them Rudolph was holding a gun shortly after reporting hearing the gunshots. Rudolph refused to speak to detectives, according to the affidavit.

Rudolph was a high school star in West Palm Beach before signing with the Seminoles, where he played for three seasons and finished his career with 18 touchdown receptions and helped lead FSU to an Orange Bowl victory to finish the 2016 season.

Rudolph was Florida State’s leading receiver in 2015 and 2016 and left the team early to enter the 2017 NFL Draft. He was not drafted but eventually signed with the New York Giants, then the Miami Dolphins. He also spent time with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League. The team released him on Wednesday.

Rudolph gained national attention in 2016 when a video of him having lunch with an autistic student during a team visit to a middle school in Tallahassee went viral. Rudolph’s father died a year later after a gun was accidentally discharged at a West Palm Beach strip club.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — U.S. Military Academy and fire officials said Friday that at least two of the school’s cadets, including a football player, were involved in a situation in which six people overdosed on cocaine containing fentanyl while vacationing in Florida. home on spring break.

Two of the six people were in critical condition, relief and emergency officials said. A West Point official told The Associated Press that one of the hospitalized cadets was an Army football player. The official said another football player in the house was not hospitalized. The official had no other information and could not give the player’s condition. No name has been released. The official spoke on condition of anonymity, citing the ongoing investigation.

The New York Academy’s public affairs office released a statement Friday afternoon saying its officials are “aware of the situation involving the West Point cadets, which occurred Thursday evening in the Wilton community. manor”.

He added that “no further details are available at this time”. The South Florida Sun Sentinel first reported that some of the victims were West Point cadets.

Four of the students overdosed after ingesting fentanyl-containing cocaine because friends who performed CPR were also exposed to fentanyl.

On Friday afternoon, Fort Lauderdale Fire and Rescue Battalion Chief Steve Gollan told the AP that two critically ill victims were on ventilators. Two other victims were in stable condition, one was in good condition and one was released.

Gollan said earlier that after two victims collapsed on Thursday, two others fell ill trying to give them CPR from the residue on their bodies. When paramedics arrived, six people at home needed treatment. He said naloxone, an anti-opioid overdose drug, was administered. Neighbors told local media that the house was an often-rented vacation home.

Fentanyl is an unpredictable and potent synthetic painkiller blamed for leading to an increase in fatal drug overdoses. It’s 50 to 100 times stronger than morphine and used to treat severe pain, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It also slows down a person’s breathing and heart rate.

Gollan said that in the 70 days since Jan. 1, his department has responded to 215 suspected opioid overdoses; nearly all involved fentanyl. He didn’t know how many had died, but said it was a two-year trend that started when the coronavirus pandemic started and hasn’t abated.

‘Complete football player’ – Arsene Wenger hails Benzema’s ‘supreme intelligence’ after Real Madrid hat-trick against PSG https://fc-zhemchuzhina.com/complete-football-player-arsene-wenger-hails-benzemas-supreme-intelligence-after-real-madrid-hat-trick-against-psg/ Thu, 10 Mar 2022 08:51:56 +0000 https://fc-zhemchuzhina.com/complete-football-player-arsene-wenger-hails-benzemas-supreme-intelligence-after-real-madrid-hat-trick-against-psg/ Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has praised Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema after his hat-trick against Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has praised Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema after his hat-trick against Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Real Madrid were expected to beat PSG in the second leg of the Champions League Round of 16 on Wednesday night. Trailing 1-0 from the first leg, Los Blancos were looking for an early goal to calm their nerves.

Unfortunately for the hosts, things didn’t go to plan as they ended up conceding just before half-time through PSG’s first leg hero Kylian Mbappe.

Karim Benzema’s hat-trick takes him to 67 Champions League goals for Real Madrid. He is the oldest player to score a hat trick in a Champions League game. This is only the 4th time #Real Madrid overcame a first-leg deficit for the first time since 2015-16.#UCL https://t.co/IGzfvZGHil

Just after the hour mark, Los Blancos skipper Karim Benzema took charge and scored a 17-minute hat-trick. His hat-trick helped Real Madrid win 3-1 on the night (3-2 on aggregate), securing their passage to the Champions League quarter-finals.

Wenger was deeply impressed with the 34-year-old’s performance and called his compatriot a “complete football player” with “supreme intelligence”. Speaking on BeIN Sport (via Mirror), the Frenchman said:

“For me, he is the complete football player – he has absolutely everything. What I love about Benzema is that he is a team player and everything he does looks simple. You always think you could do what he does – he’s supreme intelligence.

Wenger remarked that the Madrid striker had found a ‘new dimension’ in his game since Cristiano Ronaldo left for Juventus in the summer of 2018.

The 72-year-old believes the France international has improved year on year, adding:

“He has taken on a new dimension since Ronaldo left. He took on more responsibilities and he grew. I must say that I admire the year 1987 – Benzema is 87, just like Suarez, Messi and Cavani. Benzema seems to be improving every year. I’m a big fan of his game.”

Wednesday’s scintillating Champions League hat-trick against PSG took Benzema’s Real Madrid goal tally to 309. Surpassing club legend Alfredo Di Stefano (308), the Frenchman is Los Blancos’ third-highest goalscorer in the story.

Former teammates Cristiano Ronaldo (451) and Raul (323) are the only two players ahead of the France international.


The tie win over PSG marks the first time Real Madrid have overcome the first-leg deficit since 2015-16

Last night’s victory was historic for the men in white. Not only did this make Karim Benzema the club’s third-highest goalscorer in history, but it was also the first time they overturned a Champions League first-leg deficit since the 2015-16 season.

Los Blancos then suffered a 2-0 defeat in the first leg of their quarter-final against Wolfsburg. Cristiano Ronaldo scored a stunning hat-trick in the second leg to secure a 3-2 aggregate win for Madrid.

Los Blancos are famous for winning the Champions League in the 2015-16 season, giving then-coach Zinedine Zidane his first major success as a manager.

MIAMI — A judge ruled on Wednesday to grant bail and allow former Miami Hurricanes football player Rashaun Jones to be released pending trial in the 2006 murder of teammate Bryan Pata.

Florida 11th Circuit Court Judge Cristina Miranda said after three days of testimony, the state had proven “there was a viable case” against Jones, but said he was “situated differently now,” noting that he had remained in the state for many years. after knowing he was suspected of Pata’s murder. She agreed to post him $850,000 bond; typically 10%, or $85,000, is required for release.

“I can’t say he’s not a danger to the community,” she said. “Leakage risk is what I’m looking at.”

Miranda also said she questioned the credibility of character witnesses who supported Jones and referenced his work as a youth coach but failed to mention his history of drug abuse and arrests and of drug related quotes. On the day of Pata’s murder, Jones had been suspended from the team after failing a second drug test, according to police records.

During the hearings, a Miami police detective admitted some flaws in the early days of the department’s investigation, and defense attorneys pressed him to explain what new evidence prompted Jones’ arrest. after 15 years.

Jones, 36, has remained in custody and has not been granted bail since his arrest in August 2021; Prosecutors say Jones, who they say had a long-running feud with Pata over a woman, shot Pata in the head in the parking lot outside his apartment complex shortly after the football training on November 7, 2006.

Since Monday, both sides have presented evidence and questioned witnesses before a judge — not a jury — in what is known in Florida as an Arthur Hearing, almost like a mini-trial, to determine whether Jones was eligible for a trial. bail pending trial.

The judge ruled that Jones, whose residence is in a county north of Miami, will not be placed under house arrest, and orders remain in place that he refrain from contacting any relatives or witnesses of Pata in the ‘case. A spokesperson for the Miami-Dade State’s Attorney’s Office said in a request for comment after the hearing that “all of our public statements were made in court.”

Jones’ defense attorney, Michael Mirer, wrote in an email that the judge made the correct decision on bail, “and we strongly believe that when this matter comes before a jury, Rashaun will be exonerated… There is a complete lack of evidence to support the charge in this case and we look forward to our day in court.”

The next hearing in the case is set for September 1.

On the first day of testimony, members of Pata’s family — including his mother, Jeanette — sat in the courtroom on the opposite side of Jones, who was wearing a Miami-Dade Corrections-issued orange shirt and pants. and Rehabilitation Department and a protective mask. At one point, Jeanette Pata broke down crying and had to leave temporarily.

Prosecutors relied heavily on the testimony of Paul Conner, 77, a retired University of Miami English professor who lived in Bryan Pata’s apartment complex in 2006 and now resides in Toledo, Ohio.

The day after the Pata shooting, Conner contacted police and provided them with a description of a man who was walking away from the scene of the shooting shortly after hearing a loud bang. In the summer of 2007, police showed Conner a series of photos, and he chose the photo of Jones, noting that he was “90%” sure that was the man he had seen.

Defense attorneys questioned Miami-Dade Police Detective Juan Segovia, who was an assistant officer on the case 15 years ago and took it over full-time in 2020, about the ‘90%’ of Conner, noting that it cast doubt.

Segovia said lead detective Miguel Dominguez, who retired in 2020, asked Conner to assign a percentage, which Segovia said he never did and would not do. Segovia said Dominguez was “talked to” by senior members of the team as a result.

Segovia’s testimony revealed other shortcomings in the investigation under Dominguez’s direction, including the failure to collect sworn statements from witnesses; let a key detective submit handwritten notes instead of an official report; and a note in the police report stating that a man who allegedly confessed to the murder was in custody at the time of the shooting, when prison records showed that was not true. Dominguez did not testify at the hearing.

But Segovia said he “trusts the work of Detective Dominguez. I wanted to take it to another level. I think a little differently and I have a different style.”

During their questioning of Segovia, prosecutors also addressed statements by Pata’s brother and former teammates that Jones had threatened Pata and talked about possessing a firearm – specifically a .38 caliber revolver – and had been seen with a gun. Pata was killed by a .38 caliber bullet. Police never found a gun on Jones, and he denied ever owning a gun or talking about owning a gun, according to statements and police records.

When some witnesses have been asked to give sworn statements over the past two years, they have included details that were not in the parts of their original interviews noted in the police report, according to testimony and interrogations by lawyers. .

But beyond that, testimony from detectives and other witnesses revealed that there was no entirely new evidence, including nothing new found by analyzing phone records or other evidence with current technology. .

Assistant District Attorney Michael Von Zamft asked Segovia why there were no arrests 15 years ago.

“I know they wanted to make an arrest, but I know the prosecutor’s office at the time, they still didn’t believe they were there,” he said.

Later, in response to questioning by Mirer, Segovia said, “If it were up to me, I would have stopped him in 2006.”

Segovia said he recommitted to the case in the fall of 2020. This was around the same time as a series of hearings and leaked documents prompted by a lawsuit filed earlier. that year by ESPN against the Miami-Dade Police Department to compel the release. of an unredacted police report. After reviewing the records and reviewing to re-examine some of the witnesses — including Conner, who singled out Jones again in a series of photos — the state’s attorney’s office in 2021, under different management than in 2006, has approved the prosecution.

“What many cases need is a fresh look,” Segovia said. “Sometimes you’re so into the case, so sucked into it, and there’s something right in front of you and you just don’t see it.”

ESPN feature film producer Dan Arruda contributed to this report.

Controversy continues over former football player Katy ISD’s use of insults https://fc-zhemchuzhina.com/controversy-continues-over-former-football-player-katy-isds-use-of-insults/ Sat, 26 Feb 2022 04:29:06 +0000 https://fc-zhemchuzhina.com/controversy-continues-over-former-football-player-katy-isds-use-of-insults/ KATY, Texas (KTRK) — Two school board administrators were publicly reprimanded Thursday night during a special Katy ISD school board session.

KATY, Texas (KTRK) — Two school board administrators were publicly reprimanded Thursday night during a special Katy ISD school board session.

The meeting sparked divisiveness among members, following the release of the findings of an independent investigation by an outside law firm.

“If I was an employee, I would be fired immediately,” trustee Lance Redmon said.

“What you hear tonight is their effort to silence you and me,” administrator Dawn Champagne told a group of supporters in attendance.

This all comes from former Katy High School quarterback Bronson McClelland. In 2019, McClelland was disciplined for using the N-word in a video posted online.

He and his family have publicly apologized.

“I’m not trying to justify my use of the word. I shouldn’t use the word. I haven’t used the word since then,” the teen previously told ABC13.

But he says Katy ISD’s public discipline has cost him scholarships and other opportunities. A year later, during his senior season at Katy High School, he was kicked off the team when Katy ISD said marijuana was found in his car.

His family says it was a product similar to CBD oil. The McClellands have filed several lawsuits, criminal and civil, against the district and the administrators of Katy High School.

And throughout those legal battles, school board chairman Greg Schulte said two trustees, Champagne and Leah Wilson, had inappropriate communication with the football player‘s father, Colburn.

“Laws and ethical standards have definitely been violated,” administrator Ashley Vann said.

In November 2021, the school board engaged an independent law firm to investigate potential communications between board members and complainants, which were not disclosed to Katy ISD’s General Counsel.

The law firm’s findings indicate that Champagne “believed that engaging in ongoing communication with CM would improve her chances of being re-elected and moving into a leadership role on the board.”

But at the school board meeting, Champagne hit back, saying, “It’s an ongoing effort to diminish my community involvement and prevent me from understanding the issues from your perspective.”

“They don’t want me to argue with people who don’t agree with them,” she said.

The findings also accuse trustee Leah Wilson of receiving emails and text messages from Colburn. Outside attorneys say the two women may have violated the law prohibiting the destruction of public information.

They are accused of deleting text messages and emails from Colburn McClelland on their personal devices. But after spending around $30,000 and more than four months on the investigation, at least one administrator has come out critical.

“This process has been a diversion from what we’re supposed to do, take care of children,” Rebecca Fox said.

Champagne was stripped of her role as council secretary after the council voted to reassign that role. Duke Keller was named the new secretary.

Wilson declined to comment.

A spokesperson for Katy ISD said it was unclear whether the council would pursue a criminal investigation.

The attorney representing the McClelland family, Keith Donati, sent the following statement:

KISD has a habit of hiding behind its government immunity and an unlimited budget. Apparently a few board members disagreed with their mishandling of my clients’ case, took a stand and opposed the administration of KISD. As a result, two of these board members were retaliated against at last night’s meeting. My clients are a strong and courageous family and appreciate board members who are willing to take a stand against lies and injustice. We are currently involved in litigation in federal and state courts. As the depositions of the KISD defendants are completed, which will be recorded on audio and video, we will be happy to make them available to the media and the general public. The misbehavior of some KISD administrators will be obvious to all. We remain confident that when all the facts come to light, the public will finally have a clear idea of ​​how far KISD will go to protect themselves from unlawful and inappropriate treatment of a student.

When reached by phone, Bronson McClelland’s mother, Angie McClelland, said her son is “doing the best he can with the hand he’s been dealt”. She told ABC13 he thrives at a University of Texas where he’s captain of the football team and on the Dean’s Honor List. She declined to say where Bronson McClelland is currently registered.

How much are water boys paid in the NFL?

The football season may be over, but thanks to a viral TikTok, the question is sparking a lot of discussion.

The conversation started thanks to Jake Thieneman (@jake.thieneman), a former NFL player who often posts videos giving insight into life in the league. His clips are part of a common trend on TikTok, where users share hidden facts about their jobs — from life as a tow worker to the weird path some toll workers take to work every day.

Thieneman’s latest clip, which drew nearly 300,000 viewers in one day, claims the average NFL water boy salary is actually around $53,000. This figure is also reported elsewhere, such as the sports website Stackalthough data from the league itself is not readily available.

From there, Thieneman was quick to add that the number can vary depending on the team and the candidate’s experience. He also talked about how skilled many NFL water boys are.

“Now there’s a misconception that these people are just handing out water and towels,” Thieneman says. “They are coaches of the athletic training staff. Most of them have sports training diplomas or [physical therapy] degrees and learn the trade of treating player injuries and helping guys stay healthy.

Thieneman suggested those interested in the job should view it as “learning” as opposed to “just squirting water bottles.”

TikTokers, however, were somewhat unhappy. Many have argued that the pay is nowhere near enough for someone with a physical therapy (PT) degree.

Tinashe is in charge:

“Why do I feel like they don’t get paid enough now?” a user asked.

“53,000 for a PT? Lol looks like a scam,” added another.

“My son is PT but 53K a year is way too little for the amount of schooling,” another shared.

That said, Thieneman was sure to point out the benefits of the role. As he explained, Water Boys can also travel with the team and hang out with players, in addition to other benefits.

Powerhaus Agency Founder Trae Smith Plays for UCLA

THE 27-YEAR-OLD FOUNDER COMBINES A LONG COMPETITIVE ATHLETIC CAREER, SOLID ACADEMIC DEGREES AND EXPERTISE IN WEALTH MANAGEMENT

My job is to help maximize my clients’ time and compensation playing professional sports, and to invest wisely so that they are financially prepared for decades to come.

—Trae Smith

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, Feb. 4, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Trae Smith, a former college football player turned business and career advisor with an undergraduate degree in international development from UCLA and a MBA from Pepperdine University, launched a talent agency for world-class athletes. The Powerhaus agency will be based in Los Angeles.

Initially focusing on football players, Smith believes the combination of his personal high-level playing experience, business education, wealth management experience and real estate license puts him in a unique position to guide players, not just when they’re playing the game, but for the rest of their lives.

“Most people might be surprised to learn that the average seniority for a player in the NFL is only 3.3 years,” Smith explained. “My job is to help maximize my clients’ time and compensation playing professional sports, and to invest wisely so that they are financially prepared for decades to come.”

Smith, a Los Angeles resident who served as both a quarterback and wide receiver for the NCAA’s UCLA while also being on the athletic director’s honor roll, launched his own football career at Birmingham High School, a charter high school in Lake Balboa, where he was named an offensive player. of the year.

Similar to unstoppable Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, Smith was also a baseball player before focusing on football and caught the eye of local scouts while coaching his local community college team before moving on. go up to the University of California at Los Angeles. Instead of following Mahomes into the NFL, Smith decided his background, experience and personality were better suited for mentorship and advocacy in the game he loves.

“I think it’s a huge competitive advantage to have played this game because I can immediately empathize with my clients while helping them focus on the big picture, including philanthropy,” Smith said. .

The leadership skills required of an agent are nothing new to Smith, who while at Santa Monica Community College not only led his football team to its first undefeated season in 35 years, but also found the time to start “Generation of the Future”, a group of university students focused on organizing educational and fitness events for underprivileged youth from kindergarten through eighth grade.

For this group, the business-minded Smith was savvy enough to strike partnerships with UNICEF, Nike, Domino’s Pizza and the Boys and Girls Club, and was able to increase membership by more than 500% in three months. and the organization’s financial reserves by 300%. before moving to UCLA. To date, Smith remains a consultant with Generation of the Future and has also volunteered with the Westside Children’s Center, Reading to Kids, Special Olympics, and The Midnight Mission shelter for the homeless.

Prior to launching PowerHaus Agency, Smith also had ongoing relationships with Morgan Stanley for wealth management, brokerage firm Compass for real estate investing, his alma maters from UCLA and Pepperdine, and the Sigma Pi fraternity, where Smith was president of his pledge class. Smith believes this holistic approach to a player’s life, both on and off the pitch, is what will allow Powerhaus to succeed.

“Anyone in life could use a mentor, especially someone who has experienced the same challenges of a fledgling athletic career,” Smith concludes. “My job is to help my clients realize their dreams and plan for the future while giving back to their communities.”

Former Northside football player Kiondre Thomas signed a term contract with the NFL’s Green Bay Packers on Tuesday after practice.

“I’m really excited because I can continue my football career,” Thomas said. “I’ve dreamed of playing in the NFL since I was 7 years old and to have it come true for me is a blessing. Not everyone gets that opportunity, so I’m really grateful.

Prior to signing with Green Bay, Thomas signed as an undrafted free agent in May 2021 with the Cleveland Browns, eventually being waived after suffering an injury. In September, he was picked up by the Los Angeles Chargers, where he played in four games and recorded 28 special teams snaps, per Sports Illustrated.

Thomas played three seasons at Minnesota, before moving to Kansas State as a graduate transfer. He started the last four games of the 2020 season for the Wildcats.

At Northside, Thomas has played both ways, but he’s been a defensive player since transitioning to the college level. He was listed as a three-star recruit by the 247Sports Composite in high school and Arkansas’ No. 8 varsity prospect for the Class of 2016.

NFL futures place players on a team’s 90-player roster for the following season. This is not against the salary cap for this season.
