Broyld, Estime in contention for H-back spot despite vast differences in size, skillset

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ GREENSBORO, N.C. — Ashton Broyld stands at 6 feet 4 inches, 221 pounds, while Brisly Estime is listed at 5 feet 9 inches, 176 pounds.Yet, according to Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer, the two can both thrive at H-back. Much like quarterbacks and wide receivers have different fortes, H-backs come in all shapes and sizes, according to Shafer.An H-back typically plays like a tight tend, lining up next to the quarterback, running short passing routes and occasionally running the ball.“The best way to look at it, from the outside in, would be this,” Shafer said. “You have a nickelback on defense but that’s actually a linebacker.“They both play the strong-side linebacker position, but the situation and what you want to do with that person, with that player and his skill sets, dictates what the H-back or nickelback position is.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSo Broyld, who came to Syracuse as a freakishly athletic quarterback, will line up largely as a power back for the Orange. Broyld was one of four true freshmen to play for SU last season. He finished with 171 rushing yards and caught seven passes for a total of 53 yards.Shafer said Broyld brings a unique mix of talents that differ from those of Estime or wide receiver Jarrod West. He said using different kinds of players at the same position is common at quarterback, so he expects it will work at H-back, too.“Everybody does it at quarterback,” Shafer said. “He’s this type of an H-back. Same position, different guy, different skill set.” Comments Published on July 22, 2013 at 8:29 pm Contact Trevor: [email protected] | @TrevorHasslast_img read more

How Spurs could line up as Mourinho makes emotional reunion against Chelsea

first_imgAhead of the game Mourinho said: “I am 100 per cent Tottenham. I am 100 per cent my club always.”No space at all for my previous clubs. I gave everything to all of them, but they are my previous clubs.”My club is Tottenham so it’s so, so easy for me. Not difficult from the emotional side of things.”Frank Lampard says he’s happy to go up against Mourinho but thinks the Tottenham v Chelsea rivalry will top him v Jose JOSE MOURINHO will reunite with old foes Chelsea when he takes on Frank Lampard’s side on Sunday.The Portuguese boss will be desperate to get one over his former club knowing they will leapfrog Chelsea into fourth spot.1Spurs head into the game rejuvenated under Mourinho with four wins in their last five.Chelsea are battling to avoid three consecutive defeats for the first time since 2015 and are also on a run of four losses in their last five.Mourinho appears to have found a winning streak at Tottenham and is likely to stick with the same team that beat Wolves in their last outing.Michel Vorm has recovered from a calf strain but Paulo Gazzaniga is likely to remain in goal with Hugo Lloris still sidelined.Toby Alderweireld, who has just committed his future to the club, will start in defence alongside Davinson Sanchez with Jan Vertonghen at left-back.Ben Davies and Erik Lamela are the other casualties on the treatment table while big-summer signing Tanguy Ndombele will face a late fitness test.The powerful midfielder has missed the last three contests with a groin injury and will hope to make the bench.It could mean that Moussa Sissoko and Eric Dier start in midfielder with a front four of Lucas Moura, Dele Alli, Son Heung-Min and Harry Kane. most read in footballTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for himREF RAIDChampions League ref Vincic ‘arrested in raid into drugs and prostitution ring’NICE RONCristiano Ronaldo goes on family bike ride with partner Georgina Rodriguez & kidslast_img read more
