Schiller leads team as a redshirt junior

first_imgSchiller leads team as a redshirt juniorScott Schiller beat the No. 1-ranked 197-pound wrestler last weekend.Jaak Jensen, Daily File PhotoMinnesota’s Scott Schiller takes down Illinois’ Mario Gonzalez on Jan. 21, 2013, at the Sports Pavilion. Nate GotliebDecember 5, 2013Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintGophers wrestler Scott Schiller was a 4-year-old and had just lost his first match. He was sitting in his father’s lap sobbing when another dad asked if Scott would wrestle his son.Scott said yes.He won the match, kept wrestling and went on to become a three-time North Dakota state champion.“He experienced the trials and tribulations of wrestling in a very quick way,” said Scott’s father, Brad Schiller. “And he was hooked.”Nearly 20 years later, Schiller is making a name for himself at the collegiate level as a Gophers redshirt junior.He beat the top-ranked 197-pound wrestler last Saturday and assumed the No. 1 ranking in the class.“It felt good to get that win,” he said. “But at the same time, it was expected.”His teammates and coaches echoed that sentiment.“I said ‘Congrats’ but didn’t want it to sound like it was that big of a deal,” Schiller’s roommate and teammate Seth Lange said. “We kind of know that it’s expected of him.”Dedication to wrestlingSchiller wrestled for the West Fargo Youth Wrestling Club and the Tech Team Wrestling Club as a kid and joined the West Fargo High School team in eighth grade.He wrestled predominantly on the junior varsity team that season, but injuries to the team’s top 135-pound wrestlers bumped him into a starting role on varsity.Schiller wound up making the North Dakota state tournament at 135 pounds that year, despite wrestling against older kids. He didn’t win, but he recorded a consolation-round pin that helped the team to a state championship.“Even though he was getting beat, it didn’t bother him,” Brad Schiller said. “He just knew that he had to get better.”Schiller went on to become West Fargo’s first three-time state champion, posting a 43-0 record his senior year. He was also a two-time all-state linebacker on the West Fargo football team. “Every coach said the same thing: that he was going to succeed in college because of his work ethic and determination,” West Fargo wrestling coach Kayle Dangerud said.Schiller worked with former NCAA Division II-champion wrestler Steve Saxlund throughout high school. Saxlund said he was impressed by Schiller’s dedication.“He’s a super-hard worker, and that’s what it takes,” Saxlund said. “I tried to instill that in him.”Schiller waited until the spring of his senior year to choose a college and picked Minnesota over offers from Nebraska, Oregon State, Northern Iowa and North Dakota State.He redshirted the 2010-11 season and spent his redshirt freshman season behind All-American Sonny Yohn at 197 pounds.“Obviously, it wasn’t very fun not starting,” Schiller said, “but it was a great learning experience.”Schiller compiled a 26-4 record competing in mostly open tournaments as a redshirt freshman.He cracked the starting lineup last season as a redshirt sophomore and compiled a 29-6 record, finishing fifth at the NCAA championships and earning All-America honors.His teammates voted him the most dedicated wrestler on the squad.Leading by exampleSchiller is 12-0 this season and will face the 10th-ranked 197-pound wrestler this Saturday at Oklahoma State.He’s part of a formidable group of Minnesota upper-weight wrestlers that includes two-time NCAA champion Tony Nelson and All-Americans Logan Storley and Kevin Steinhaus.“Just having the partners is the key to our success,” Schiller said. “Wrestling with someone like that every single day, you’re going to learn.”Those who know him well said he’s earned his success through hard work and dedication.“Scott’s never been particularly fast or strong, but he’s been very, very focused on completing all those things, so he is a stronger athlete,” Brad Schiller said. “Nobody else practices as hard as he does.”last_img read more

Antigua Gov’t moving to end stealing of water

first_img 242 Views   no discussions Tweet Share Sharing is caring! ST JOHN’S, Antigua (CMC) – The Antigua and Barbuda Government is considering measures aimed at preventing people from wasting and stealing water.“APUA (Antigua Public Utilities Authority) has said that on a number of occasions they have reported to the police that some people are doing unlawful things like bringing a pickup truck to a standpipe and filling up their barrels of water with hoses. Police have said that they are powerless to intercept them because there is no law for them to act,” said Chief of Staff Lionel Max Hurst.Hurst said that APUA officials earlier this week presented the Gaston Browne government with an update on the draft Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) legislation on water resources and that the government is moving to ensure that the legislation is brought to Parliament as soon as possible.Hurst said under the new law water rates will go up when there is a shortage and down when there is adequate supply.“What happens as you know with many products when they are scarce the price goes up but not with water, our water rates have remained unchanged.“Our water rates are the lowest…in the English speaking Caribbean (and) we have not increased our water rates for a whole lot of social reasons,” Hurst said.In recent months, Antigua and Barbuda, like some other Caribbean countries, has been dealing with a drought situation.center_img Share NewsRegional Antigua Gov’t moving to end stealing of water by: Caribbean Media Corporation – September 18, 2015 Sharelast_img read more

Ki Sung-Yueng reveals he and Heung-Min Son are prepared for war

If my country needs me, I’ll be there for them and I’ll be ready to fight. But to be ready to fight, you must learn how to fight.“Of course, I was lucky to get a bronze medal. If I had not I’d have been ready to do the full 18 months. Sonny, myself and all Korean men have that mentality. It’s a honour to serve your country.”Ki — who joined Swans from Scottish champions Celtic for a then club-record £6million — in summer 2015, served a strict, four-week military programme which included learning how to launch grenades, fire weapons and survive gas attacks.He said: “We got up every day at 6am and the days were long.“I threw grenades, which were real and exploded. You had to enter into a gas room and wear a mask. You had to march everywhere, too. It’s real training.“I forgot all about being a Premier League footballer. I was a soldier and you must behave orderly every day. Even if you go for breakfast, lunch or dinner, you first assemble then must march to the restaurant.“There’s no freedom of behaviour.

Instead he will play for South Korean’s army team Sangju Sangmu in their domestic K League.Ki said: “Normally, footballers do the four weeks training and then after that join the army’s team.“You stay in a barracks but rather than do the real army training you do the football training.“The Korean league is from March through to November and you play Saturday and midweek — the same as here.“But if a war did suddenly happen, you have to go.”US president Donald Trump has agreed to meet North Korean leader Kim and Ki hopes that is a sign of tensions starting to cool.He said: “I’m not into politics but I hope nothing will ever happen.“I just want North and South Koreans to be friendly like we were before.”7 The 25-year-old has until the end of 2019 to sign up for his mandatory 18-month serviceCredit: Ian Walton7 The former Celtic ace was exempt from military service after helping his country win a bronze in the 2012 OlympicsCredit: ReutersIt will be evening in Seoul as the nation’s biggest two football stars battle for a place in the FA Cup semi-final this lunchtime — and all sports bars in the capital Seoul will be rammed.Son has been a gem for Mauricio Pochettino since joining Tottenham in 2015, hitting 21 goals last season and 18 already this term despite not always being a regular.Ki, 29, has been good friends since Son got into the national team in 2010. He said: “When I was at Celtic, I noticed this Korean guy who was 19 and playing for Hamburg in Germany. He was quick and scoring goals in Europe. That’s not normal for a young player from my country. So I was curious about him.“He then was called up to the national team. When players are called up for the first time, I can always spot if they’re nervous or confident. I could see right away he had confidence.“He’s not like a normal Asian player, he is more like a European player. He has those characteristics. He isn’t afraid of anything.”Ki says his pal is a joy to play alongside in the national team.7 Ki and Son have been international team-mates since 2010Credit: AFP – GettyHe said: “He makes it easy for me. Due to his movement, going behind the defenders. He gives us options.“When I have the ball I always find him because the way he’s moving is dangerous.“It’s difficult to mark him because he is so unpredictable and has big pace. To mark him is difficult. That’s why he scores a lot of goals and is doing well in the Premier League.“In this league, the defenders are quick, they’re strong but he’s always there. He always has a chance to score. He’s going to be a huge threat to us.”Ki and Son will be together on the pitch at the World Cup this summer — the ninth tournament in a row that South Korea have qualified for — more than England have managed.He said: “He can take further, bigger steps now and, hopefully, he can score more goals for our national team.“That is my big hope for the World Cup, so we can do something really special.”Bournemouth 1-4 Tottenham: Heung-min Son double rescues Spurs after Harry Kane ankle injurylast_img read more

Kane finds scoring touch to send Poch’s boys to the Champions League

first_imgHE kept a firm eye on the ball before attempting to volley it past Newcastle keeper Martin Dubravka.Embarrassingly and worringly, Harry Kane delivered a quite spectacular miskick and you had to wonder what else could go wrong for Tottenham.8 Kane scored his 28th league goal of the seasonCredit: News Group Newspapers LtdNo trophies and – at that moment – it looked like possibly no Champions League next season.All that was missing at that moment was for Daniel Levy to receive a phone call from the White Hart lane site manager to announce that someone had nicked all of the cranes.Yet while Kane’s glaring miss came five minutes before half-time, it was exactly the same time after the break that Kane reminded everyone – despite the fact he has not looked fully fit – that that he is a bloody good striker.And that effort, his 28th Premier League goal of the season and 39th in all competitions, ensured that Spurs will be once again in the Champions League next season.8 Kane scored his 138th goal for TottenhamCredit: REUTERSWith seven minutes of this game remaining, the celebrations started when news filtered through of Chelsea’s draw with Huddersfield.The second cheer came when the result appeared on the scoreboards.STOP RUSSIAN England fear Kane ‘will not be fully fit for World Cup after rushing returnIt means the Sunday’s final home game against Leicester will be relatively meaningless, something Spurs’ fans – petrified their team were about to deliver an almighty cock-up – will be extremely grateful for.Against a decent Newcastle side, it was certainly another Spursy performance from Maurcio Pochettino’s team who have ended the season so nervously.8 Shelvey reacts after missing a chance to put his side in the leadCredit: News Group Newspapers LtdINTERACTIVE STATS – CLICK on the categories to find out how the teams faredINTERACTIVE LINE-UPS – CLICK on a player’s name below to see their stats8 Hugo Lloris celebrates after the final whistleCredit: News Group Newspapers LtdThe sooner this season ends for Tottenham the better even though another top four spot for the club is reasonable.Boss Pochettino claims this is an “amazing” and that is not really the case. A trophy is amazing.And as last night proved, the club has to improve on its poor recruitment from last summer with Davinson Sanchez the only arrival in the last 12 months to start.Pochettino switched to a back four after an unimpressive showing from his three-man defence in the 1-0 loss to West Brom on Saturday.Tottenham  started confidently, with Christian Eriksen’s decent free-kick being pushed away by keeper Dubravka, but their intensity soon dropped and Newcastle were reasonably comfortable.Although the scores were level at half-time, Newcastle could easily have led by a couple.Harry Kane misses great one-on-one chance but also grabs winner against NewcastleWHAT THE REFMMA fighter gets DQ’d in Abu Dhabi and tries to fight Brit ref Marc GoddardLIL ISSUEBoris Becker’s estranged wife begs his new girlfriend to ‘step away from my son’RETRACING STEPSJack Charlton’s granddaughter Emma Wilkinson ‘would love’ to visit IrelandROY RAGEFurious Roy Keane launched foul-mouthed rant at Pique over Fabregas friendshipPicturedTOP FORMBrazil icon Ronaldo soaks up sun with partner Celina Locks on yacht in FormenteraCHOPPER BOTHERJohn Terry ignores hol advice & travels to ‘off-limits’ Portugal by chopperprayer parkHundreds of Muslim worshipers celebrate Eid at Croke Park in historic ceremonyMAC BACK?Conor McGregor hints at stunning UFC comeback with ‘I accept’ postPicturedON THE PAOLPaolo Maldini shows off shredded physique at 52 while on holiday with wifeLive BlogUNITED LATESTMan Utd transfer news LIVE: All the gossip and updates from Old Trafford8 Kane opened the scoring in the 50th minuteCredit: News Group Newspapers LtdAlthough they had lost their previous three games, Rafa Benitez’s team looked solid at the back, Jonjo Shelvey once again impressed  in midfield and they looked dangerous on the counter attack.Shelvey’s cracking effort smacked against the outside of the post with home keeper Hugo Lloris was nowhere near it.Yet Tottenham’s French keeper saved his team with a spectacular save as he flung himself to the right, keeping out a powerful header from Jamaal LascellesJan Vertonghen suffered a poor game and after being caught out again, Ayoze Perez crossed for Dwight Gayle but he wasted a his header from a decent position.Kane delivered a shot which saw the ball remain in play while Vertongen hammered an effort straight at Dubravka.When England star Kane was presented with a golden chance, the opportunity to ease Tottenham’s nerves, he completely missed his kick8 Lloris makes an athletic save to deny LascellesCredit: REUTERSWhile Pochettino may argue otherwise, Kane definitely came back from his ankle injury a couple of weeks too early.There were a few jeers from the Tottenham fans when  Neil Swarbrick  blew his whistle for half-time and it was all threatening to go horribly wrong.Pochettino would have expected a reaction and he certainly got that – from Kane in particular.Not having the best games, Dele Alli fed Kane who then played a delightful one-two with Heung-Min Son, culminating with a brilliant , first-time shot from just inside the area.Equally, Gareth Southgate – who names his England squad next week – will  have been relieved with the sight of his best player scoring a goal of such great quality.Southgate should be more worried about Alli’s performances and the Spurs midfielder should have made Dubravka work harder with an effort.Wednesday Round-Up: Watch all the action from the midweek Premier League games 8 Kane races away to celebrate after breaking the deadlockCredit: PA:Press AssociationYet it could have been so much worse for Newcastle who, to their credit, refused to go away.Just seconds after coming on as a substitute, Jacob Murphy will feel he should have levelled. After comfortably getting past Sanchez, he was unable to keep his effort on target.There more uncomfortable moments for Spurs and it was only when Chelsea’s result came through when Pochettino’s team began to settle, even though Danny Rose missed a sitter.But once again, Spurs will do battle with Europe’s finest and not for the first time, it was all thanks to Kane.8 Kieran Trippier fell to the ground after a challenge from Mohamed DiameCredit: REUTERSFull Thursday Premier League preview including West Ham United vs Manchester Unitedlast_img read more
