Ohio State punter Cameron Johnston on watch list for Ray Guy Award

OSU junior punter Cameron Johnston (95) stands on the sideline during a game against Virginia Tech on Sept. 7 in Blacksburg, Virginia. OSU won, 42-24. Credit: Samantha Hollingshead | Lantern photographerCameron Johnston, a senior punter on the Ohio State football team, has been named to the preseason watch list for the Ray Guy Award, given annually to the nation’s top punter. Johnston, one of 28 collegiate punters on the watch list that was released Thursday, was a semifinalist for the award during the past two seasons. Since the award’s inception in 2000, the only Buckeye to take home the hardware was B.J. Sander in 2003. Johnston is one of the most decorated punters in program history, with three school records to his name. He set the single-season record in 2015 for most punts inside the 20-yard line, with 31. En route to that total, he set a new career mark, with 83. His average of 57.0 yards per attempt in a 2014 game against Illinois is also a school record. A native of Geelong, Australia, Johnston’s ability to pin opponents deep in their own territory has been invaluable to coach Urban Meyer’s teams over the past two seasons. With the loss of 14 starters total from last year’s roster, having Johnston back to lead the special-teams unit should be an asset.In all, five Buckeyes are on preseason lists, including redshirt senior Pat Elflein, who was named to the Rimington Trophy watch list on Wednesday. The award honors the nation’s top collegiate center. It’s the first time Elflein has been included on the trophy’s watch list, but that’s because this will be his first season as OSU’s center. He has started the past two seasons at guard, where he helped turn the Buckeyes’ front five into one of the most respected units in the country. The 6-foot-3, 300-pound Elflein, who has twice been a first-team all-conference guard, shocked many with his decision to return for a fifth season. But his decision to stick around will likely pay dividends for an OSU offense that lost seven starters from a season ago, including three on the offensive line. Redshirt junior quarterback J.T. Barrett is on the Maxwell Award watch list, handed out to the nation’s top player, regardless of position. Junior linebacker Raekwon McMillan and redshirt junior defensive end Tyquan Lewis are on the Bednarik Award watch list, given annually to the country’s top defender. OSU is set to open the 2016 season on Sept. 3 against Bowling Green. Kickoff is scheduled for noon at Ohio Stadium. read more

Opinion Selecting Ohio State footballs Mount Rushmore

Mount Rushmore National Memorial is an iconic place that attracts more than three million people annually. It features four 60-foot tall granite carvings of the faces of former presidents of the United States — George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt.The historic significance of the four presidents cannot be disputed. Although there have been many important figures in American history, these four have unique legacies that make them worthy of having their faces chiseled into a mountainside.Often people talk about creating a hypothetical “Mount Rushmore” for other disciplines outside of American history. This is especially common in the world of sports.For example, last year LeBron James was asked who he would include on a NBA version of Mount Rushmore. With so many great players and coaches in the league’s history, the task of choosing just four can be tough. But it is fun to find out which four individuals people consider to be the cream of the crop.I will take on that task and narrow down my top four legends to be included on a Mount Rushmore of Ohio State football.OSU is regarded as one of the marquee programs in college football, with eight national championships, seven Heisman Trophy winners and 79 consensus All-Americans. The task to sort through all of the legends from the program’s history and then dwindle them down to select four was at times difficult. But I believe I have found the four most worthy Buckeyes to be carved into the hypothetical granite.I will break down each of my four choices with reasons why I nominate them to the imaginary monument. With a program that has such rich history, there will be deserving individuals who who have been left off, but I only could choose four. Here they are:Woody Hayes- Head Coach, 1951-1978This one wasn’t all that difficult. I would go as far as saying it was a no-brainer to include Woody Hayes. He was the head coach of OSU for 28 seasons, and under his leadership, the program soared into the category of elite. Hayes guided the Buckeyes to five national championships and 13 Big Ten titles. He also coached 58 All-Americans. During his tenure, the Scarlet and Gray went undefeated twice.Hayes’ career at OSU ended in controversy when he punched a Clemson player in the final minutes of the 1978 Gator Bowl, but he was known throughout his time in Columbus to be an incredible leader of the young men he coached. The positive stories surrounding his leadership should — and in my opinion do — overshadow the incident with the Clemson player that got him fired. Hayes is truly a college football coaching legend.He had his trials and tribulations, but a career winning percentage of .761 and five national championships speak for themselves. He helped solidify the Buckeyes as a premier program. No Ohio State football Mount Rushmore would be complete without a carving of Hayes donning his famous large-framed glasses and black hat with a bold scarlet block O outlined in white. To me, his contributions to the program make him 100 percent deserving.Archie Griffin – Running Back, 1972-75Like Hayes, this one was not too agonizing of a selection. Hayes is OSU’s most decorated coach, Griffin its most decorated player. The only two-time Heisman Trophy winner in the award’s 79-year history, Griffin — who was coached by Hayes — first won it as a junior in 1974 when he amassed 1,772 yards from scrimmage and 12 touchdowns. He won his second Heisman in 1975 when he totaled 1,620 yards from scrimmage in 1975 and four touchdowns.Griffin’s Buckeyes made four straight trips to the Rose Bowl, including a victory over Southern California in 1973. He is the only player to lead the Big Ten in rushing for three consecutive seasons. He finished his career with the Scarlet and Gray with a school-record 5,589 rushing yards.In 1986, he was enshrined in the College Football Hall of Fame. His No. 45 has been retired by Ohio State. In 2014, he was named the All-Century Player of the Rose Bowl Game. Hayes said of Griffin, “He’s a better young man than he is a football player, and he’s the best football player I’ve ever seen.”I believe Griffin is the best player to ever wear scarlet and gray. Buckeye Mount Rushmore would not be complete without him on it.Eddie George, Running Back, 1992-95Before, I said the task of choosing four people to hypothetically carve out of granite was “at times difficult.” It was. This is where it began to get difficult. The first two choices — Hayes and Griffin — were almost obvious. The final two required much more thought.Eddie George got the nod for the third spot on the fictional monument. He suited up for the Buckeyes from 1992 to 1995, having at least three touchdowns in all four of his seasons. George emerged during his junior year when he rushed for 1,442 rushing yards — ninth most in school history — and 12 touchdowns. But his 1995 campaign solidified his spot in Buckeye history and on the OSU Mount Rushmore.George captured the Heisman Trophy for his performance during the 1995 season, and rightfully so. He tallied 2,344 yards from scrimmage — 1,927 of those rushing — and 25 total touchdowns. He rushed for over 100 yards in a school record 12 of the Scarlet and Gray’s 13 games. His 314 rushing yards against Illinois set another school record. Additionally, George had three games over 200 yards rushing in the regular season — another school record. He currently sits behind Griffin in second place for most rushing yards in school history, with 3,768.Finding a season better than George’s 1995 one in Buckeye history would be tough. He dominated competition and carried the team to a 11-2 mark. Those opposed to George being carved into the imaginary granite might point to his 1-3 record in bowl games and a 1-2-1 record against Michigan. Those arguments are fair, but the Buckeyes did finish inside the AP’s Top 20 during each of George’s four seasons, which proves the teams still were successful. He had two exceptional seasons as the featured back, in 1994 and 1995. His senior season was pure dominance. In my opinion, it is arguably the most impressive individual season in OSU history, and because of that, I could not leave George off of the Buckeye Mount Rushmore.Bill Willis, Offensive and Defensive Line, 1942-44The final spot came down to a few people — Urban Meyer, Howard Cassady and Jim Tressel —  but in the end, Bill Willis emerged as the most deserving. Willis, who is most likely the least-known individual on the list, started for three seasons for the Buckeyes from 1942 to 1945. He played on both the offensive and defensive lines during his tenure. Willis helped the Scarlet and Gray capture the program’s first national championship in 1942.During his junior and senior seasons in 1943 and 1944, Willis was selected as an All-American. As a senior, he was a part of an undefeated OSU team.Being a lineman — especially from the 1940s — makes statistics more difficult to come by, but Willis’ impact is still easily accessible. When he was voted an All-American, Willis became the first African American from OSU to receive such an honor. He was not the first African American to suit up for the Buckeyes, but he was the first one to become a star.After finishing his career in Columbus, Willis joined the Cleveland Browns in 1946, making him one of the first African Americans to play professional football in the modern era. He went on to have a largely successful professional career.He was elected to the College Football Hall of Fame and the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1971 and 1977, respectively. His No. 99 was retired by OSU in 2007.Willis was truly a pioneer in the game of football during his time wearing scarlet and gray and beyond. His accomplishments and legacy certainly make him deserving of the final spot of the Ohio State football Mount Rushmore. read more

US District Court Judge Del Mar gun shows can continue for now

first_img June 19, 2019 US District Court Judge: Del Mar gun shows can continue for now SAN DIEGO ( KUSI ) – A federal judge ruled that gun shows can continue at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, at least for now, as the court considers a lawsuit against a state agency’s decision to effectively suspend the shows, the California Rifle and Pistol Association announced Wednesday.U.S. District Judge Cathy Ann Bencivengo issued a preliminary injunction on Monday, ruling that the state must allow gun shows at the fairgrounds to continue while the court rules on the legality of the suspension. As such, guns shows like the Crossroads of the West will be allowed to reserve dates and hold shows at the fairgrounds for the first time since last December.The state’s 22nd District Agricultural Association Board of Directors, which oversees the Del Mar Fairgrounds, voted last September to temporarily ban the sale of guns and ammunition at the fairgrounds until state legislators could iron out concerns about on-site purchases.The vote effectively suspended gun shows at the fairgrounds after Jan. 1, prompting the CRPA to file suit against the state of California. The National Rifle Association and the Second Amendment Foundation are also supporting the CRPA in its grievance.“We’re thankful Judge Bencivengo sees the constitutional problem with banning these safe, perfectly legal events and is allowing the show to go on while we continue to fight,” said Tiffany Cheuvront, attorney for the CRPA and B&L Productions, which runs the Crossroads of the West gun show. “We’re confident that as this case progresses, law-abiding Americans’ civil rights will not be unjustly violated and that we will prevail.”The San Diego County Gun Owners political action committee also praised the ruling and argued there is “nothing reasonable” about ending gun shows at the fairgrounds.“It is unconscionable that a very few people would use the force of government to discriminate against fellow San Diegans simply because they dislike them for exercising their rights,” said Michael Schwarz, executive director of San Diego County Gun Owners. “The injunction shows that the judge agrees there is a valid and important case to be made on behalf of California gun owners.”Gun control activist groups like Never Again California, a group of Del Mar residents and the cities of Del Mar, Encinitas and Solana Beach called for an end to gun shows at the fairgrounds last year in response to mass shootings and instances of gun violence around the country.State officials also came out against hosting gun shows at the fairgrounds and state-owned land in general, including Gov. Gavin Newsom and Assembly members Todd Gloria, D-San Diego, Lorena Gonzalez, D-San Diego, and Tasha Boerner-Horvath, D-Encinitas.In February, Gloria and Boerner-Horvath introduced Assembly Bill 893, which would ban the sale of guns and ammunition at the fairgrounds wholesale beginning in 2021. The Assembly approved the bill by a 48-16 vote in April and it’s now being vetted in the state Senate. However, the court’s eventual ruling on CRPA’s case may put the bill’s future in jeopardy.While Boerner-Horvath’s office had no immediate comment on the ruling, Gloria insisted AB 893 will continue moving through the state legislature.“This injunction ignores the will of residents in the communities around the Del Mar Fairgrounds who have stated unequivocally that they do not want guns or ammunition sold on this public, state-owned property,” Gloria said. “We will continue to persist with our legislation to prohibit gun and ammunition sales on the fairgrounds and I hope the Del Mar Fair Board chooses to appeal this misguided decision.”The case is expected to continue into the fall, according to Cheuvront. If the Senate passes AB 893 and Newsom signs the bill into law prior to the case’s completion, the gun show organizers would likely file a second lawsuit to have the ban struck down.
