INDIANAPOLIS — Jarett Andretti was at Kokomo Speedway two weeks ago when a stranger went up and hugged him. His initial reaction was confusion. Who are you? What’s happening? “I’m sorry to hear about your dad,” the man said. Andretti loves the support. But it didn’t even click with him in the moment. He was at the racetrack, and he was in race mode. It’s where he goes to clear his mind and forget that his father, John Andretti, is battling Stage 4 colorectal cancer.
A two-year starter at Minnesota, Jalen Myrick wowed scouts with his 4.28 time in the 40-yard dash at the NFL combine. He has the quickness in space to match speed with receivers but can also run through transitions with underneath routes. Myrick has a big vertical jump seen both on film and in tests (37 Â˝").ÂAs a kick returner, Myrick has the game-changing speed to break things open. He can be explosive in coverage, allowing him to play in a man or zone scheme.
A makeshift baseball field once occupied a vacant plot of farmland near Payne Koehler Road, in New Albany, Indiana. Complete with the essentials, the field was inhabited by a group of neighborhood kids, a scene reminiscent of “The Sandlot.”Among them were Sean and Zach Payne, brothers separated by five years and introduced to the game by their father, Pat. Sean and the younger Zach mustered what they could to help erect the rudimentary field, the duo recalled Monday afternoon.
