Nelson Agholor in the NFL is all about progress

A great attitude, hard work, and a good heart make blue chip NFL players. Chip Kelly might’ve found one in Nelson Agholor. Nelson Agholor will be a playmaker for the Philadelphia Eagles. Not because of his speed, not due to his release off the press, but simply because of his hard work ethic. Agholor is a true example of a humble athlete, his attitude is contagious and even as a rookie he will be able to motivate others. The talented receiver out of the University of Southern California goals are not to win the Super Bowl and become an instant star, instead Agholor only wishes to be a...

Trojans in the Pros: New York Mets First Baseman Lucas Duda

Duda has become a main source of power for the New York Mets. It is always interesting to see how many Trojans are playing professional sports. Now the sport that is always highlighted is football but the USC Baseball Program has an excellent history of producing All-Star and Hall of Fame caliber players (Randy Johnson, Fred Lynn and Tom Seaver just to name a few). Speaking of Tom Seaver and the New York Mets, after four years in the minors and a couple of decent seasons in the pros, first baseman Lucas Duda has found his niche as one of the best hitters for the team from Flushing, New...

The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill scandal

The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill scandal is one of the biggest ever in collegiate sports. As we wait for the NCAA to deliver a punishment, lets look back at some sport scandals and the sanctions enforced. In 1987 college football would never be the same. Southern Methodist University located in Dallas Texas, was handed down one of the biggest punishments in sports history. The Mustangs already on probation for recruiting violations, were found guilty of paying 13 players $61,000 from a booster slush fund. Not only did the coaching staff allow this to happen, the athletic...

USC Football 2015: WR Steven Mitchell continues to improve

After being plagued with injuries for the last two years, a healthy Steven Mitchell takes the field with determination for the Trojans. After Nelson Algholor had a breakout season last year for the Trojans, it was clear to coaches and fans that it will be soon they would say goodbye. The talented junior was drafted to the Eagles in the first round and will go on to be a big contributor to Chip Kelly's offense. That leaves the Trojans' wide receiver coach Tee Martin and fans looking for who will step up and fill that role this upcoming season. With a young, deep, and talented unit of...

USC Track and Field: 2015 NCAA Championships

Andre De Grasse is historically fast After watching Andre De Grasse historical performance at the NCAA track & field championships, I can no longer describe the sophomore sprinter as just "fast". There's supersonic, velocious, and my favorite expeditious. Regardless of which word I choose De Grasse was a prime example, as he took gold in the 100M and 200M. If you blinked watching Friday's track meet then my friend you missed history in the making. De Grasse came in as the underdog & ran off as a winner in the 100M beating Baylor's Trayvon Bromell, who was the defending champion. De...
