The National Football League usually has its annual draft in New York City.

But the league is currently inviting cities to put up bids to see who is interested in hosting the event.

This week, the NFL invited Chicago, Los Angeles and New York to make their presentations to host, but no one emerged as the front-runner.

It has been reported that more than a dozen cities have shown interest in being a host in 2015. They include: Boston, Canton, Cleveland, Green Bay, Houston, Nashville, New Orleans, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.

The NFL says it’ll chose a site sometime this summer.

Former University of Minnesota and NBA guard Ray Williams died this past weekend. He was 58.

Williams died March 22, 2013  in New York City after suffering from colon cancer.

Ray is the younger brother of another former NBA star, Gus Williams who played for Golden State, Seattle, Washington and Atlanta.

Williams averaged 18.9 ppg in two seasons at Minnesota where his teammates included Kevin McHale and Mychal Thompson and head coach Flip Saunders. All four made their way into the NBA.

Williams played 10 years in the NBA with the New York Knicks twice, the New Jersey Nets twice, Kansas City Kings, Boston Celtics, Atlanta Hawks and San Antonio Spurs.

 

In a surprise move, Loth leaves Otterbein for Western Connecticut State

In a surprise move late last Thursday, May 17, head football coach Joe Loth surprised Columbus area media, the town of Westerville and Otterbein fans when rumors started circulating around town that he was leaving his alma mater, to sign a multi-year contract to rebuild the program at Western Connecticut State.

Loth’s leaving probably even shook the media relations department because until this day, there has not even been an article written declaring his resignation or leaving the university. That is strange in itself.

Western Connecticut State University is a public state university, established in 1903. It has an enrollment of 5,907 and located in Danbury, Connecticut. It is an NCAA Division III school with 14 varsity sports. Their nickname is the Colonials and play in two conferences, the ECAC, Eastern College Athletic Conference and the LEC, Little East Conference.

The rebuilding job at Western Connecticut State will take longer than at Otterbein. But Loth will recruit from talent in Connecticut, New York City and Long Island.

The football team plays in the New Jersey Athletic Conference, where it has had a tough time under former coach John Burrell, going 0-10, 0-10, 2-8 and 2-8. Its last winning season was in 2005.

The 45-year-old Loth could not pass up the chance at WCSU where he is very familiar with the town and university. He was the Colonials defensive coordinator from 1993-1997. His wife, Keri graduated from the school as well.

Loth is certainly good at rebuilding. During his tenure at Otterbein, he saw the football program receive a shot in the arm with new facilities for the football program, including a renovated Memorial Stadium and football field. Also, before he was hired by former athletic director Dick Reynolds, the Cardinals had only one winning season in 23 years. In his final seven seasons, the program had four winning years and saw the school’s first berth into the NCAA Division III playoffs in 2008 with a 9-2 record and 8-1 in the OAC, second to Mount Union. Loth was named OAC Coach of the Year and Ohio Coach of the Year that season.

As expected, former Ohio State defensive lineman Cameron Heyward was selected 31st overall by the Pittsburgh Steelers Thursday night in the 2011 NFL Draft at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

Heyward is the 69th Buckeye overall to be drafted in the first round and the 17th since 2000, the second most among FBS schools during that time. He also is the 74th Buckeyes to be drafted overall since 2000, the most among any FBS school. He is the 14th first-round pick in the Jim Tressel era.

Rounds 2-3 continue Friday evening beginning at 6 p.m. ET while rounds 4-7 will take place Saturday beginning at noon.

Heyward was a Playboy All-American, a Lombardi Award semifinalist and a Lott Trophy quarterfinalist in 2010. A first team all-Big Ten selection by both coaches and the media in 2010, Heyward started 46 career games, totaling 163 tackles, 37.5 TFL and 15.5 sacks.

At the Ohio State football banquet in December, Heyward was awarded the Bill Willis Trophy from the coaches as the team’s outstanding defensive player in helping the Buckeyes defense rank among the national leaders in several stat categories.
