BELOIT—Nick Schmidt is causing his father to lose some sleep, but he probably doesn't mind a bit. The senior outfielder is hitting .556 for a Beloit College baseball team 6-0 this spring and coming off a doubleheader sweep Monday of rival St. Norbert. “My dad lives in Berlin where he is a screenwriter for German television,” Schmidt said. “I'm seeing the ball well and I've been really relaxed at the plate, spraying the ball all over the place,” Schmidt said.
One week after he was released from the Cincinnati Bengals organization, running back Giovani Bernard met with the media for the first time as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Still under thirty-years old, it feels like Bernard has been in the league longer than he has, but still has plenty left in the tank as he signs on to try and make his first run at a Super Bowl title. We’ve heard other Bucs players using words like culture, atmosphere, and others.
Short stuff: As the name, image and likeness revolution sweeps across college football, UCF players made national news at the spring game Saturday when they had their Twitter handles on the backs of their jerseys. I don’t know about you, but If I were a college football player, I’d have my Cash App or Venmo handle on the back of my uniform!!!
