Jaguars’ Calais Campbell Named 2019 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year

February 02, 2020 at 02:18AM

Campbell has given back to his northeast Florida community by forming the CRC Foundation, named for his late father, Charles.

Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Calais Campbell has been named the 2019 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year honoree.

A five-time Pro Bowl player, Campbell has given back to his northeast Florida community by forming the CRC Foundation, named for his late father, Charles. The foundation has taught critical life skills to young people since 2009, and was founded alongside his mother and seven siblings.

Campbell has rewarded the youth in his community for their hard work. Over the holidays, he held

shopping sprees for local children who completed extra financial literacy lessons. He also hosted 250 children at the Calais Campbell JaxPAL Youth Football STEM Camp and makes semi-weekly trips to Northwestern Middle School as part of his CRC Book Club.

In his role as a mentor, Campbell also makes appearances at schools to discuss social justice and offer encouragement with Kids Hope Alliance. He also donates money based on his NFL performances, donating $1,000 for every Jaguars’ win, $5,000 for each of his sacks, $2,500 for every half-sack and $2,000 for every tackle for loss in the 2019 season.

Campbell finished with 6.5 sacks, 25 QB hits and 10 tackles for loss as the Jaguars went 6-10.

Cambell won Man of the Year after being nominated in both 2011 and 2014. He also received the Bart Starr Award in 2018, which acknowledged his character and leadership.

The Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year award is given to a player that shows “excellence on and off the field.” 

Three Thoughts on United States Men's National Team's Friendly Win Over Costa Rica

February 02, 2020 at 01:59AM

A young U.S. men’s national team beat a more experienced Costa Rica 1-0 in an international friendly match on Saturday.

Minus all of its top European-based players outside of a FIFA international window, a young U.S. men’s national team beat a more experienced Costa Rica 1-0 in Carson, Calif., on Saturday. The standout player for the U.S. was 18-year-old winger Ulysses Llanez, who scored from the penalty spot on his national team debut.

Four months after Costa Rica’s previous coach, Gustavo Matosas, had quit his job by saying he was “bored,” several of the Tico players looked lethargic and bored on Saturday as well.

But that wasn’t the case for the majority of the Americans, who had the upper hand for the first third of the game possession-wise and got a deserved goal early in the second half after right back Reggie Cannon pushed up and earned a penalty after receiving a nice pass from Paul Arriola.

Here are my three thoughts on the game:

Llanez couldn’t have asked for a much better debut. The Wolfsburg under-19 player was competing in front of his family and home fans, where he used to play for LA Galaxy II, and showed some cojones to step up and take the penalty when he got a chance. Llanez, playing on the left wing, created some dangerous moments in the early parts of the game, but he slowed down for a stretch after a rough collision with Costa Rican goalkeeper Esteban Alvarado. Llanez seemed refreshed after halftime, though, and coolly slotted home the penalty before joining his teammates in a turn-around-jumper goal celebration honoring Kobe Bryant. A Mexican-American who still is eligible to play for both countries at the senior level, Llanez could be a significant part of March’s Olympic qualifying tournament for the U.S. if Wolfsburg can be convinced to release him for the games.

Several other young Americans had promising games. Sam Vines of the Colorado Rapids started at left back, worked well with Llanez and got upfield on several occasions. Jesús Ferreira got the start at centerforward and had a few good moments on the ball. And Cannon, who has a bit more experience, patrolled the right side well from the back to the front. A bit less impressive was Brenden Aaronson, though he still was able to unspool one good shot on goal. Ultimately, this was a good opportunity for coach Gregg Berhalter to go with several players who will be age-eligible to play in the Olympic qualifying tournament as the U.S. hopes to advance to the Olympics for the first time since 2008. Intriguingly, Costa Rica—whom the U.S. will play in the opening game of that Olympic qualifying tournament—chose not to start several Olympic age-eligible players and instead went with older teammates.

This was a weak crowd. Granted, this was hardly the varsity playing, but the announced attendance of 9,172—which was far more than the number of actual butts in seats—was a real bummer. Why couldn’t U.S. Soccer give free tickets to kids in L.A. for a game like this? Why couldn’t there be some sort of imaginative idea that would have drawn more fans out to L.A. at a glorious time of the year there weather-wise? Maybe another location for the game would have drawn more attendance? From a soccer sense, this game was promising. From an atmosphere sense, it could have been a lot better.
