Consider donating today to support our mission.Wide receiver Cameron Jordan has left the Syracuse football program, SU Athletics confirmed to Syracuse.com and 247sports. The program did not give a reason for his departure. The redshirt junior was left off the updated roster that SU released Monday. With the program’s loss of Trishton Jackson and Sean Riley — Jackson a year early to the NFL and Riley to graduation — Jordan was primed to compete for a starting job. He caught three balls for 20 yards in his first two years, but was listed atop the Orange’s depth chart for outside receiver in March. Syracuse this season returns wide receivers Taj Harris, Anthony Queeley, Russell Thompson-Bishop, Ed Hendrix, Sharod Johnson, Nykeim Johnson and Courtney Jackson. Harris and Johnson were listed as the two other starters in the spring and have the most yards and receptions.Hendrix, a redshirt sophomore, was listed as the second string to Jordan in March’s version of the depth chart. He’s yet to appear in a game for the Orange after missing his first two seasons recovering from separate knee injuries. In his senior year of high school, Hendrix totaled 27 receptions for 585 yards and 14 touchdowns for H.D. Woodson (Washington, D.C.). AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse is positioned to enter training camp as early as Aug. 6. The Orange entered phase three of their summer workouts in late July, now operating as cohesive offensive and defensive units, and held their first walkthrough last Thursday. center_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Equatorial Guinea Open: Olapade Wary of ‘Tough’ Mongomo

first_imgBy Olawale Ajimotokan in Abuja From a casual view, the Presidential Golf Course, Mongomo, Equatorial Guinea is captivating and benign, but to the trained eye, it is a very tough and unforgiving layout, capable of denting a professional player’s score card.The over 7,000 metres long course carved from dense and lush vegetation is an enchanting layout revered by golfers and guests. From December 8-11, it will welcome 60 professional golfers (men and ladies) from 24 countries for the fourth edition of 3e Actuaries Equatorial Guinea Open.Nigerian professionals like Kingsley Oparaku, Fred Eweka and Austin Akpodiete discovered the other side of Mongomo at the 3rd edition of the tournament last year, when their championship hope was compromised after incurring extra strokes.Sadly, they will not be among the eight Nigerian wild cards that will jostle with the international field of 48 male players for the prize money of $100,000 after failing to make the automatic cut for 30 players.Oche Odoh, who won the 54-hole contest, will lead other Nigerian automatic qualifiers, including Sunday Olapade, Kamalu Bako, Gift Willy, Morgan Atako, Christopher Francis, Michael Ubi and Mohammed Haruna. Uloma Mbuko will compete with 12 players for $50,000 in the lady event.Olapade, who finished in joint seventh with Spain’s Puig Giner, last year, is wary of the demands of Mongomo having also featured in the 2014 edition.The Osun State born player, who is based at Ibori Golf Club, Asaba, declared that he knows what to expect in Mongomo and is setting up his preparations to meet the expectations.“Mongomo is a very tough course but I am doing my best to improve on my Equatorial Guinea record. I wake up by 5am and hit 500 balls every day. It will be a rare feat to accomplish victory on a very demanding and unforgiving course.  It is a course that rewards good shots and in another dimension does not allow mistakes go unpunished. It is a characteristically long, tough and challenging course,’’ Olapade said.The No 4 player on the Nigerian official ranking order, listed the par 4 hole 2, the par three 14th and the long par 5 10th,among the toughest holes on the course, adding that apart from accurate shots into the fairways, players are required to be calm and be fit because of the length of the course.Olapade, who finished in second position at the Celtel Ghana Open, 4th at CMCL Open (Ilara –Mokin), tied for 5th at the Memorial (Otukpo) and 13th at West Africa Golf Tour (Port-Harcourt) added that Nigeria’s domination of Equatorial Guinea Open since 2013 will also boost his chances of winning.All three editions held in Malabo and Mongomo were won by Nigerian players: Willy in 2013 and Odoh in 2014 and 2015.“I bet Nigerian players can beat anybody if supported. Our government should encourage the game to thrive by providing incentives. I can beat Rory Mcllroy if the sponsorship is provided, ‘’ Olapade boasted.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
