Soccer | Crew: Parkhurst named to all-star roster

Ross Friedman was just finishing his first preseason as a professional soccer player when a veteran’s move took him by surprise. The 22-year-old Friedman was in Florida with his Crew teammates when defender Michael Parkhurst invited the roster to his hotel room, where he had ordered pizza for the entire group. Now nearly five months later, Parkhurst has been named to the all-star roster as his gesture continues to leave an impression on Friedman, who has spent the year on loan to USL Pro affiliate Dayton.

Revised NCAA rule changes food college sports programs can provide athletes

Ohio State dietitian Sarah Wick saw athletes arrive hungry for early-morning workouts. She saw them leave after practice on empty stomachs, rushing to class with no time to grab something nutritious. Wick would ache for those athletes. Compounding her angst was the frustration of knowing she could do little to help.

Is the Crew turning things around?

It took a two-goal outburst from Bernardo Anor and an electrifying performance from goalkeeper Steve Clark, but the Crew earned its first MLS win in five games with a 2-1 comeback victory against Montreal. The win ended a stretch of 16 games with just one win — tied for a Crew record — and injected a much-needed air of confidence into a roster struggling to stay positive. Now the question is, will it be the start of a a second-half turnaround or just a blip on the radar?
