Combine performances are overvalued in evaluations

The NFL combine is the most overrated, nitpicked and overemphasized event in all of sports. The idea of scouting a player’s skill set heavily dependent on 40-yard-dashes and shuttle runs is bewildering. Game film speaks for itself on how a player performs, not how many inches their vertical jump is. Year after year, teams fall in love with the “workout warriors” and the players who are the epitome of an elite athlete at the combine....

Players should not be expected to take hometown discounts

In today’s sports universe, there should be no such thing as a “hometown discount.” This past week, a report by Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram stated that ex-Seahawks safety Earl Thomas would not give his hometown Dallas Cowboys a break when it came to money. The 29-year-old, according to Hill, Jr. is attempting to supersede Eric Berry as the highest-paid safety in the league. Thomas’ situation is the perfect...

Powell leads Pirates over Marquette, Howard in dramatic victory

In the battle of the Big East superstars, Myles Powell came out with the upper hand in more ways than one. He finished with 34 points as compared to Markus Howard’s six points, but the biggest number on the scoreboard was the final score, not the individual statistics, as Seton Hall came away with a 74-63 victory over No. 16 Marquette. The Golden Eagles kept their distance from the Pirates all game, but ultimately, an 18-0 run to...

Seton Hall finishes in sixth place at Loyola Intercollegiate

Seton Hall had plenty to deal with weather-wise last week, as imminent snowfall, heavy wind and sleet hit the South Orange area. The men’s golf team did not see one inch, however, as it was able to avoid the slew of inclement weather this past weekend when competing in the Loyola Invitational in Goodyear, Ariz. last weekend. Fittingly named Palm Valley Golf Course, known for its rolling hills and diverse terrain, the Pirates embraced...

Arteaga driving softball’s offense with simplicity

Through 13 games to start the softball season, a large part of the team’s offense is running through Hailey Arteaga. The junior from Upland, Calif. is having a torrid opening to the campaign. To start the season, Arteaga has a .447 average through 38 at-bats, which equates to 17 hits. For players on the team with 15 at bats or more, the next best is Jaden Tate, who is hitting .296 in 27 plate appearances. Arteaga also leads the team...

Adams showing MLS development in the Bundesliga

Former New York Red Bulls midfielder Tyler Adams joined RB Leipzig in January to further his career against some of the best soccer clubs in Europe. Young Americans do not have the best track record when it comes to moving from Major League Soccer to a European league, but the Wappinger Falls, N.Y., native is on course to help redirect that trend upwards. Since January, Adams has appeared in six of the seven matches RB Leipzig has...

Backlash toward CTE inspired law is abhorrent

Earlier this week Massachusetts lawmakers announced that they were considering a bill to prevent children from playing tackle football before seventh grade. The reaction online was disorienting and alarming. The objections to the proposed law – which would cost violators a $2,000 fine – were centered around kumbaya notions of tackle football instilling toughness and the completely broken, incoherent logic that a sport which destroys...

A promise to her coach made Reganne Camp softball’s ace

Reganne Camp means business whenever she is on the mound. The jet black sunglasses mean more than a stern facial expression from the ace of the softball staff. She brings the impression of being “The Terminator” to any hitter that enters the batter’s box but not because of her frequently thrown change-up. It is because she made the promise that she will be back. “I can tell you Reganne’s game face, behind those darkened sunglasses,...

Late rally comes up short as Pirates drop season opener

The Seton Hall baseball team dropped its season opener by a final score of 4-3 to Ohio State in Port Charlotte, Fla. on Friday afternoon.
