Georgia Bulldogs coverage on the Home of the Dawgs

  • As the South Florida community continues to recover from last month’s shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Florida Atlantic University football coach Lane Kiffin is lending his hand to help. >> Read more trending news Kiffin, the second-year Owls coach who led FAU to an 11-3 record last season, announced Friday night that the team’s April 7 practice at Fort Lauderdale’s Carter Park will also serve as a benefit for Stoneman Douglas. FAU will also hold a youth camp from 1:15 to 2:15 p.m for students in kindergarten through eighth grade. All proceeds from the practice, which will also feature a $5 raffle for a three-night stay at the Boca Resort and $20 for the youth camp, will go to the Stoneman Douglas victims and their families. Gunman Nikolas Cruz killed 17 students and faculty in a Feb. 14 mass shooting before being arrested later that day. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for Cruz, 21, who is being held at the Broward County Jail. Cruz’s younger brother, Zachary, was arrested last week for trespassing at Stoneman Douglas. Students returned to class on Feb. 28 and are currently on spring break. Several Stoneman Douglas football players attended Thursday’s practice at FAU on unofficial visits, but did not speak to media because of NCAA regulations. Stoneman Douglas currently has several former student-athletes on FAU teams, with senior baseball pitcher Jake Miednik graduating from the school in 2014. Miednik’s younger sister was in class during the shooting but escaped unharmed. Former Eagles offensive lineman Nick Weber was added to the football team as a walk-on last August. Miednik threw six shutout innings against George Washington in a 3-0 win on Feb. 16, just two days after the shooting and hours after attending the funeral of a family friend who was killed in the massacre. “I’d like to say that everyone during that incident, everyone’s in my heart and prayers,” Miednik said that night. “It’s unfortunate what happened and I’m praying for everybody, praying for all the victims, and I just want to say ‘God bless to everyone.’ ”
  • It’s easier to pay off a bet when you have a national championship in your pocket. >> Read more trending news On Thursday, Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts wore the jersey of the Crimson Tide’s bitter rival, Auburn, on campus, ESPN reported. Hurts had made a bet on Nov. 14 with Auburn alumnus Charles Barkley before the Iron Bowl game between the two Alabama universities.  'Jalen Hurts challenged me to a bet, and I ain't forgot it, Jalen,' Barkley said that day. 'I'm either going to wear an Alabama jersey on TV, or he's going to have to wear (an Auburn jersey) on campus. ... I've got the jersey coming. 'My Tigers need to win because I don't want to wear that crap on TNT.' Auburn stunned No. 1 Alabama 26-14, handing the Crimson Tide its only loss of the season. Hurts paid off the bet Thursday, as the school posted a video on its Twitter feed. 'What's up, Charles,' Hurts said. 'Obviously, I'm a man of my word. And first off, I'd just like to congratulate Auburn and the Auburn family on their successful season this year. But I think it's time I get to class. I'm running kind of late for English.' Hurts added a “Roll Tide” before walking away. While Alabama lost to Auburn, the Crimson Tide qualified for the College Football Playoff games and won the national title with a 26-23 overtime victory against Georgia.
  • Sean “SJ” Tuohy Jr. has not been blindsided by fame. In fact, he has embraced it. >> Read more trending news Tuohy works for University of Arkansas coach Chad Morris, but many remember him because of the character portrayed by Jae Head in the 2009 movie “The Blind Side.” 'Everyone wants me to stay as this 11-year-old kid,' Tuohy, an assistant director of football operations, told KATV. 'Some people think I 'Benjamin Button'-ed it, never aged or went backwards. I think it's disappointing to someone when I say ‘That's me.’ ‘Oh man, I thought you were much smaller and cuter!’” “The Blind Side” is the story of Michael Oher, an impoverished youth adopted by the well-to-do Tuohy family. Oher went on to a successful career as an offensive lineman at the University of Mississippi and the NFL, most notably with the Baltimore Ravens. Tuohy continues to have a good relationship with his adopted brother. 'You look back at it and think, I wasn't really like that, that's not how it was. (But) that's what it was like,' Tuohy told KATV. “(Michael) excelled in football, he excelled in basketball, everyone socially loved him. He was someone you look at like, 'Man, I hope I can be like that one day.'' Tuohy shed some light on the film, which starred Sandra Bullock in the role of his mother and Tim McGraw as his father. Quinton Aaron played Oher in the film. He said Bullock’s characterization of his mother, Leigh Anne Tuohy, was accurate, but was only a capsule version. 'She's much worse in real life than Sandra Bullock was in the movie,” Tuohy told KATV. “That was two hours of my mom. Think about that as a 24-hour day, all the time.' Bullock won an Academy Award for her portrayal of Leigh Anne Touhy. Tuohy said the movie sometimes was a curse, adding that he’d often be taunted while playing high school sports. ''Good job, Sandra,' chants and I remember we were warming up one time playing a school in football and they played the whole 'Blind Side' soundtrack before the game,” Tuohy told KATV. “I can't control any of that stuff and just laugh it off.

But some other prep stars, like Georgia’s Nick Chubb for example, excel at the next level. Watch the video above to see several key Bulldogs when they were suiting up in high school. You can see these players when Georgia (13-1) plays Alabama (12-1) for the national championship Monday in Atlanta.

  • A Massachusetts  woman is outraged after she says an Uber driver raped her and then left the country.  The suspect was arraigned on Friday, posted bail and is believed to have fled the country.  >> Read more trending news  Boston 25 News would not normally identify victims of sexual assault, but Emily Murray insisted that she wanted to be seen and heard. She said she wants everyone to know what happened to her, and how the system failed her. 'It happened. I'm not ashamed, I'm not embarrassed. I understand what happened. I know I did nothing wrong,' said Murray. 'A loss for words. I was angry I'm still angry. I'm confused.' >> Related: Woman accuses employee of poisoning her coffee cream after disciplinary action On April 8, Emily said she was trying to get home when her Uber driver, identified as Frederic Amfo, allegedly locked the doors and raped her in the backseat of his car, just after dropping off another customer. 'Within minutes I was in a situation I couldn't control and I was assaulted,' Murray said. DNA evidence collected from both a rape kit and Amfo's car led to his arrest. At a court appearance Friday, Amfo was given a $10,000 bail and ordered to stay away from Murray. Records also show Amfo was also given 24 hours to surrender his passport, if he made bail. >> Related: 911 operator sentenced to jail, probation for hanging up on emergency calls On Friday afternoon, Amfo, who was in the United States illegally, made bail, but he did not surrender his passport, instead he fled the country back to his native Ghana. 'If I went to Ghana and I committed a crime, I wouldn't expect to be able to hop on a plane and say sorry about that, here's some money. I would expect to answer for it. Accountability. And there has been just zero,'Murray said. 'That detainer should have followed the alien as he transferred from the Quincy Court House. The court chose not to forward the detainer to Norfolk County, allowing for his subsequent release on bail from custody,” according to a U.S. Customs and Enforcement official. >> Related: Cops save suicidal teen, tell her 'nothing is that bad' Tuesday evening, the Massachusetts Trial Court issued a  statement that said in part: “Today, April 17, 2018, the court issued an arrest warrant for the defendant after learning from the prosecution that the defendant has left the country. At the time the defendant posted bail and was released from the House of Correction, the defendant had not surrendered his passport to the court. A review of the circumstances indicates that the court allowed the defendant to be released without first surrendering his passport, providing him 24 hours to do so. As a result of this review, the court has now implemented procedures to ensure that defendants who are ordered by the court to surrender their passports surrender them when they post bail and prior to their release.' >> Related: Investigators: Man intentionally set fire that killed 24 horses It’s unclear what happens next in the case or whether authorities will try to locate Amfo in Ghana.
  • A Texas prosecutor says an imprisoned former nurse who authorities believe could be responsible for the deaths of up to 60 children has confessed in the past to killing children in her care. Bexar (bayr) County prosecutor Jason Goss revealed the confessions Wednesday during a court hearing for 67-year-old Genene Jones. Goss says Jones told a parole board in 1998 that she injected children. He says Jones in another instance told a board member that, 'I really did kill those babies.' Jones has served decades in prison following her murder conviction in 1984. She was scheduled to be released last month, but prosecutors filed additional murder charges, citing new evidence. She has pleaded not guilty to those charges. Her attorney, Cornelius Cox, wasn't immediately available Thursday to comment on Goss' claims.
