first_imgYooo #Syracuse’s QB has marbles! Savage tackle after he throws a pick and then gets up ready to rumble. #Cuse #BC #CollegeFootball— The PUP List (@ThePUPListBlog) October 22, 2016 UPDATED: Monday, Oct. 24, 2016 at 8:38 p.m.Syracuse has publicly reprimanded Director of Football Operations Brad Wittke for shoving Boston College defensive back William Harris in a scrum during Syracuse’s game against Boston College on Saturday, SU Athletics announced Monday night. SU will have no other comment and it appears Wittke avoided any severe repercussions.SU made the decision after consultation with the Atlantic Coast Conference, the release said. Syracuse Athletic director John Wildhack reviewed the footage and determined “Wittke engaged in unsportsmanlike behavior by making contact with Boston College player William Harris.”“I apologize to William Harris, Coach Addazio and the entire Boston College football team for my actions Saturday,” Wittke said in the release. “While trying to prevent the situation from becoming worse I made contact with William, causing him to fall to the ground. I take responsibility for that and regret that it happened.”Syracuse head coach Dino Babers did not comment in the release. Through an SU spokesman, Babers will not comment on the issue.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text The play started when Eric Dungey threw an interception on Syracuse’s first drive of the game. Dungey dragged Harris out of bounds to prevent a touchdown on the interception return, but then proceeded to spin and throw Harris head first into the ground well beyond the boundary line.Eagles linebacker Matt Milano stood over Dungey on the sideline before Dungey shoved him into Harris and to the ground. Harris got up and Dungey charged forward with Wittke beside him, both combining to knock Harris over a table and to the ground again.After the game, Boston College head coach Steve Addazio said he saw “some stuff went down over there” that needed to be addressed.“I hold all members of our athletics program to highest standard of conduct, and support the Atlantic Coast Conference’s commitment to sportsmanship,” Wildhack said. “I’ve spoken with Brad and he fully understands that his actions were not appropriate.” Comments Published on October 24, 2016 at 6:28 pm Contact Jon: [email protected] | @jmettus Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

NPA Comptroller Urges Liberians to Preserve Peace

first_imgThe Comptroller of the National Port Authority, Madam Christiana Paeley,  has called on all Liberians to work tirelessly in preserving the peace the country is enjoying today.She made the call over the weekend following the Golden Image Award Women’s Forum held at the Liberia Crusaders for Peace headquarters in Monrovia, proxying for the NPA Managing Director,  Madam Matilda Parker.According to NPA Comptroller “It has taken us decades to reach thus far as Liberia as Nation was built some 166 years ago. Today Liberia needs critical attention and care. The peace we are enjoying today has cost many lost of lives and a breakdown of our societal values,” Mrs. Paeley noted.She further stated that if Liberians don’t make good choices and take responsibility for their actions the peace will be lost.  She, therefore, urged  everyone that they must learn respect for themselves and others, tolerance pursuit of education, making business and pursuing vocational and technical training.“The young generation of women will have to learn to make sacrifices and make the right choices for the growth of themselves,  which will translate to Liberia’s development and the preservation of the peace. You all bear witness that during the civil conflict, while the unarmed men were hiding in the ceilings, under the beds or in the deep forest, the women of Liberia were out doors finding food for our families, moving from one country to the other calling on Nations to help and demanding the leaders of the warring factions to end the war.  There were instances when you women had to fast and pray, sleep on benches and undergo  hardships that we can neither describe nor mention here.  But one thing is clear: Liberia is at peace.”Madam Paeley used the occasion to warn especially the young generation of women to choose not to make merry and live in the fantasy of luxuries at the expense of working hard for education, career,  business and vocational training.She urged the young girls and women not to follow after material things and night clubs.“Those who for get the past, are bound to repeat it,” she stressed as she cautioned the young people not to repeat the mistakes of the past.Several women peace groups attended the forum and explained their stories of how they contributed towards the peace that Liberia enjoys today.  Women who told some interesting stories were awarded certificates.Among the groups that participating in the program were WIPNET, Women against Crime, Rural Women, Liberia Marketing Association, National Traditional Council, Travel and See among others.Cultural Ambassador Juli Endee, who is the executive director of Crusaders for Peace, said that the activity is part of the Golden Image Award Celebration remembering those who have helped Liberia to reach thus far.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
