After turbulent spring, Daniels spending the summer working his way into Drake’s plans (Des Moines Register)
There were no substitutes available, just an empty bench. So Daniels, a 5-foot-9 point guard who transferred to Drake from Boston College last year, was given the green light to shoot at will. And he did, scoring 46 points and showing some impressive range as his Capital Orthopaedics team built a big lead and wheezed to the finish line of a victory over Atlantic Coca-Cola Bottling Co.
Schwab Commits to Eagles (247Sports)
“Coach Brown is a great guy and believes I have what it takes to play at BC,” Schwab said at the time. “When I spoke with coach (Steve) Addazio privately, he told me that he wants me at BC, but they have 15 commits already. He is having a staff meeting this week, and they are trying to find a spot for me.”

“A lot of guys at that age, especially in the environment down there, which is just rabid, rabid football news media, there’s a little bit of a rock-star mentality down there,’’ Addazio said. “We were always concerned about who was around our guys. There was a lot of opportunity for different people to try and infiltrate, so we were always concerned about that. But he did well in school, did well on the football field, and he was always one of those guys who had a smile on his face all the time. So that’s what I really [remember], that’s what I have.

“Obviously I think the world of him and I just feel bad for all that is going on. He and I had a great relationship,” said Addazio. “But just the nature of taking head coaching jobs and doing things, I really haven’t spoken to Aaron in about three or four years. I don’t really know where all that is at but I’m just wishing and hoping for the best for him, whatever happens.”
ACC Football 2013 Payback Games: Maryland (Atlantic Coast Convos)
Again, Maryland put themselves in position to win this game. They’d outgained BC by 40 total yards on offense, were even in the turnover battle (until that final pick, anyway), and were even more effective converting on both third and fourth downs. But that’s the difference between a “promising young team” and a “struggling, inexperienced team.” The ones that are ready to make that leap finish the job. The ones who need more time to figure things out drop the ball late. So are the Terps ready to finish the job this year?
A Dream Come True: Keane Johnson to represent U.S. at World University Games (Conte Confidential)
Keane Johnson always set high goals for himself. As early as his rookie season at Boston College, he dreamed of one day rowing for his country. “I wanted to row for a national team at some point,” he said. “I was in love with the idea of rowing for the United States but I never thought I had a genuine chance of doing it.”
