Zach Thomas returns to his original team and retires a Dolphin

compiled from staff and wire reports

Zach Thomas and his agents Drew and Jason Rosenhaus got the idea that Thomas could sign a one-day contract with the Miami Dolphins and retire as part of that franchise.

The agents called the Dolphins management and it was ‘yes’!

On Thursday, Thomas signed a one-day contract, officially worth $1 , which meant alot to Thomas who did not receive a proper farewell when Miami released him back in 2008.

A fifth-round draft pick out of Texas Tech in 1996, Thomas became a star during his 12 years with Miami. He was one of the faces of the franchise along with the likes of Dan Marino and his brother-in-law Jason Taylor.

Thomas had 1,038 tackles, 19 1/2 sacks and 17 interceptions in 168 games for the Dolphins, and he was chosen to seven Pro Bowls.

He spent the 2008 season with the Dallas Cowboys, then was in camp in 2009 with Kansas City, which released him before the season for unspecified injury issues. He never played again.

The first football game in the new Meadowlands Stadium will be between the two occupants of the $1.6 billion facility.

The NFL announced Wednesday that the Giants and Jets will play the first game August 16 when they meet Monday night in the preseason opener for both teams.

The Jets and Giants traditionally play the second-to-last preseason game against each other, but with the new stadium both teams wanted to be the first to play in it.

The Giants will play the first regular season game in the new stadium on September 12.  The Jets will open their regular season with the first Monday night game in the new stadium.

That decision caused much controversy and debate.

Both New York teams also wanted to play the first regular-season game at the new stadium.  But that became a problem since the Giants and Jets are not on each other’s schedule, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell intervened and flipped a coin to determine which would play first at the new stadium.

The Giants won the toss, but the Jets ownership was upset that a representative from their team was not present when the coin was flipped.

In other NFL news, the Dallas Cowboys and the Cincinnati Bengals will play in the Pro Football Hall of Fame game to open the NFL’s preseason schedule in Canton, Ohio on August 8.

SPORTS SPOTLIGHT: Rob Carpenter: Ex-NFL star, current Lancaster High School Football Coach

During the football season during our Friday night High School football  broadcasts, we feature a coach, athlete, athletic adminsitrator or Hall of Famer on WPKO-FM/WBLL-AM, the Peak of Ohio.com. This past 2009 season, we had a chance to feature a former NFL running back and current Lancaster Golden Gales head football coach, Rob Carpenter.

Robert Joseph Carpenter, Jr., was born April 20, 1955 in Lancaster, Ohio. He played at Miami of Ohio in the Mid-American Conference for Bill Mallory.

He was drafted  in the third roun, 84th pick by the Houston Oilers. He played with Houston from 1977-1981; the New York Giants from 1981-1985 and the Los Angeles Rams in 1986.

Carpenter rushed for 4,363 yards in a 10-year NFL career.

He has four sons. Bobby Carpenter, the former Ohio State linebacker is now with the Dallas Cowboys; Jonathan Carpenter played at Cincinnati and is a graduate assistant there; Georgie is at Marshall University and Nathan Carpenter played for his dad this past season at Lancaster and will be playing in college in 2010.

The 6’1 220 pound Rob Carpenter had several good seasons in the NFL:

With Houston in 1977, 652 yards, 1 touchdown and a 4.5 yards per game.

With the New York Giants in 1981, 748 yards, 5 touchdowns.

With the New York Giants in 1983, 624 yards, 4 touchdowns.

With the New York Giants in 1984, 795 yards, 7 touchdowns.

When Rob was in Houston, he played with Earl Campbell.

When Rob was with the New York Giants, his teammates included: Lawrence Taylor, Phil Simms and Henry Carson.

Rob had his moments in New York. There was a 1985 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, Joe Morris gained over 200 yards and lost a shoe on one of his touchdown runs. Rob Carpenter was blocking his head off opening holes for Joe Morris and had a beautiful 46 yard run. Carpenter was a fan favorite from what members of the media tell me who covered the team in those days.

Lancaster plays in the tough Ohio Capital Conference which is one of the largest leagues in the state. Playing in that league and having a top-notch non-conference schedule, will get them computer points and a playoff berth.

The Golden Gales play in the Ohio Capital Conference, Ohio Division with Gahanna-Lincoln Lions, Grove City Greyhounds, Groveport-Madison Cruisers, Newark Wildcats, Pickerington Central Tigers, Pickerington North Panthers and the Reynoldsburg Raiders.

Lancaster has had several distinguished alumni: David Graf, Officer Tackleberry in the Police Academy Films; Rex Kern, former Ohio State Quarterback and Allan Anderson, former Lefthanded Pitcher of the Minnesota Twins, American League ERA and Robert G. Heft, designer of the American 50 star flag which was adopted by Congress on July 4, 1960.
