H.S. Wrestler Andrew Johnson’s Locks thrown in Trash after being cut off by Referee.

The internet has taking focus on the story of Andrew Johnson, a high school wrestler who was forced to cut off his Locks by a referee.  His locks were then cut off in front of everyone in attendance.   To add to the story, the locks were then swept up and thrown in the dumpster.  This provided no option for the locks to be reattached.

The dreadlock reattachment process can take many different forms but over a period of months, individuals like Andrew can have their locks re-attached and regain some of the extensive time that it took them to grow.

To recap referee Alan Maloney jumped into the fold at the moment that Andrew was getting ready to compete and gave the 16 year old the dreadful option of cutting his hair or forfeiting the match.   It happened so quickly that Andrew didn’t really have time to process his decision.  It is unclear how Andrew had competed before without regulations being addressed to his school and his team.  It would appear that at some point communication would have been handed down to schools letting children with long hair know that they can’t compete.

NCAA To Allow Players To Be Paid For Names, Image, And Likeness

For years, many members of the public have fought for collegiate athletes to get paid for programs using their names and likeness.

Now, that wish is on its way to becoming a reality.

On Tuesday, the NCAA unanimously voted to allow it’s student-athletes to profit off their names, image, and likeness.

While the NCAA first has to create new policies and regulations around the rule change before allowing players to be compensated, the vote is a massive first step to pay college athletes.

With the NCAA making over $1 billion in revenue, the rule change has been a long time coming. However, the NCAA still has a ways to go before student-athletes will be paid, as they want to ensure that players will still be treated the same as non-athlete students, and not like an employee for the universities.

In a statement released by the NCAA, NCAA President Mark Emmert said: “The board’s action today creates a path to enhance opportunities for student-athletes while ensuring they compete against students and not professionals.”

The movement to pay student-athletes has garnered a lot of momentum in the past months. Recently, NBA All-Star Lebron James had California Governor Gavin Newsom as a guest on his talk show “The Shop,” where Newsom signed a bill into law that stopped colleges from banning player compensation and allowed college athletes to sign agents.

Various other states, including Florida and New York, introduced a similar bill into their governments, and U.S. Rep. Anthony Gonzalez (Ohio) has decided to propose a similar law to congress.

Politicians and athletes alike rejoiced over the announcement, and video game enthusiasts are already hoping EA Sports will bring back their ever-popular NCAA games.

Once the new rule change is fully integrated, player compensation will change the dynamic college sports forever, and hopefully, for the better.

On most Sundays, Philadelphia Eagles Star defensive tackle Fletcher Cox tries to breakthrough offensive lines looking to protect their quarterback. 

However, last week, it would be Cox who had to protect his own home from a very different type of intruder.

According to WPVI-TV, suspect Corbyn Nyemah appeared at Cox’s New Jersey home looking for his ex-girlfriend, an unnamed woman that Cox is currently dating. 

Nyemah came to the property armed with a baseball bat and circled the premises, and unsuccessfully attempted to break into the home through the garage and by throwing rocks at the front door.

 Nyemah would also damage the woman’s car.

Cox then armed himself with a shotgun, forcing Nyemah to flee in his SUV. The police pursued Nyemah, and after being identified, he was detained by U.S Marshalls.

Nyemah later posted bail and is expected to be in court for the incident later this month.

Eagles head coach Doug Peterson provided additional comments on Cox’s situation.
