Staats misses Syracuse media day, reportedly finishing coursework at OCC before enrolling at SU

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ In a crowd of orange jerseys in the center of the turf field in Manley Field House, Randy Staats was nowhere to be found.Staats, an Onondaga Community College transfer, verbally committed to Syracuse last February but was not at the team’s media day on Monday. SU head coach John Desko said he couldn’t comment on Staats “until a letter of intent is signed,” and added, “I wish I could.”According to OCC head coach Chuck Wilbur, Staats is taking a winter class at OCC and can’t enroll at Syracuse yet.SU Athletics spokesman Mike Morrison echoed that in an email to The Daily Orange.“(Desko) is not permitted to comment on Randy until he matriculates,” Morrison said. “Along the same lines it would be premature to list him on the roster until that process is complete.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAt OCC, Staats helped the Lazers to a championship in each of his first two seasons and was named the National Junior College Athletic Association Player of the Year as a freshman. In that season he collected 57 goals and 82 assists, breaking the school’s all-time single-season scoring record.If his transfer process goes as planned, Staats will join an already stacked Syracuse attack featuring senior Derek Maltz, junior Kevin Rice and redshirt sophomore Dylan Donahue. Staats has two years of NCAA eligibility remaining.—Staff writer David Wilson contributed reporting for this story.

Ronaldinho Leaves Footprints in Maracana Hall of Fame

first_imgBrazil’s former football star Ronaldinho yesterday left his footprints in the Hall of Fame in Rio’s legendary Maracana Stadium, one year after retiring from the sport.“This is one of the biggest trophies of my career,” the 38-year-old – full name Ronaldinho de Assis Moreira – told reporters as he was hailed by dozens of tourists visiting the stadium built to host the 1950 World Cup final match.His footprints will now be displayed alongside those of other Brazilian greats such as Pele and Zico. Ronaldinho first received an invitation to leave his prints in 2011, but put it off because of his busy agenda, he said.The former Barcelona forward won the 2002 World Cup with Brazil alongside Ronaldo and Rivaldo, scoring a memorable long-range free-kick against England.He was awarded the Ballon d’Or as Europe’s best player in 2005 and finally hung up his boots in January 2018, seven years after returning to Brazil.Since then, he said he has had “a very active life”, though he still misses his sporting days.Discovered in the southern Brazilian city of Porto Alegre, where he was born, Ronaldinho also spent time with Paris Saint-Germain, AC Milan, and at Brazilian teams Flamengo, Atletico Mineiro and Fluminense, as well as a year with Mexico’s Queretaro.He did not respond to reporters’ questions about the confiscation of his passport late last year over an unpaid $2.3 million fine for damaging the environment while having a property built on a lake in a conservation area.Nor did he reply to questions about how he viewed the first days of Brazil’s new President Jair Bolsonaro, whom he supported during his campaigning via his Instagram feed.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
