Anna Katherine Griggs was at it again last weekend for the UNA volleyball team, playing on the road against Florida Gulf Coast (FGCU) on Sept. 27 and against New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) on Sept. 29, the former Arab star had nine kills and 13 blocks.
It was good enough for AK to earn ASUN Freshman of the Week honors.
• I knew Skip Bayless when he was a well-respected and excellent sports writer in Dallas, not the buffoon he is on TV these days.
This week, he was at it again on “Undisputed” on FS1.
“My betting lock of the week is Florida over Auburn…You’re telling me a true freshman quarterback is going to come into the Swamp and beat the mighty Gators on Homecoming?
“No way, no how they (Auburn) wins.”
This from the guy who continues to say Jim Harbaugh is a better coach than Nick Saban. And how long has it been since the Gators were “mighty?”
• You probably remember the late Richard Jewell. He was the security guard who heroically saved lives from an exploding bomb at the 1996 Olympics, but was unjustly vilified by the press who considered him a suspect, thanks to some tips from government sources.
A film directed by Clint Eastwood, “Richard Jewell,” is set for release Dec. 13. A trailer for the movie was released Thursday.
I’m really looking forward to the movie as I was at the Olympics that night.
