Bishop Gerald E. Wilkerson , along with Deacon Bob Seidler, presided over the service. During Bishop Wilkerson’s homily, he encouraged the students to “know [their] goodness,” and to “allow goodness to flow out of [them].” After the liturgy, three of the student campus ministers, Brikk Bralley, Claire Sigler and Katherine Laco, shared their experiences from the Dominican Preaching Conference they attended over the summer in Michigan. Some of the many lessons they took back with them included the idea of LULO, “Look Up, Look Out,” instead of the popular slogan YOLO (“You Only Live Once”). As Brikk explained, ”One of the awesome speakers at the conference, Michael Petro, challenged us to look up to God for guidance in our lives while also reaching out to the needs of our world.”The liturgy was part of Veritas Week, a week that celebrates the Dominican heritage of FSHA. [Optional: Other events throughout the week included a daily morning reflection and a bake sale, whose proceeds went to Father Tom’s Kids, a Dominican charity that supports education in Kenya. There was also a free dress day for students who paid $1 for the opportunity (proceeds also going to Father Tom’s Kids).For more information, visit www.fsha.org.

USS Montpelier Returns to Naval Station Norfolk

first_imgThe Los Angeles fast-attack submarine USS Montpelier (SSN 765) returned to Naval Station Norfolk from a regularly scheduled deployment Feb. 17.Under the command of Cmdr. Thomas A. Winter, Montpelier is returning from the European Command area of responsibility where it executed the nation’s maritime strategy in supporting national security interests and maritime security operations.“Montpelier conducted various independent operations that directly contributed to the combatant commander’s theater security operations,” said Winter. “Additionally, we participated in a multinational anti-submarine warfare exercise with participants from France, the United Kingdom, Canada, and Portugal.”During the deployment Montpelier steamed more than 36,500 nautical miles. They were able to conduct port visits to Haakonsvern, Norway; Faslane, Scotland; and Rota, Spain.“Each of these visits provided opportunities for the Montpelier crew to experience the local culture while strengthening relations with our allies in the European theater,” said Winter. “The performance of Montpelier’s crew was exceptional – inport and at sea. We accomplished all operational tasking, pulled into and out of port as scheduled, remained at sea as scheduled, and was an invaluable asset to the Sixth Fleet commander for more than six months.“The technical and tactical competence exhibited by this highly trained crew was nothing short of phenomenal. In addition to meeting all operational requirements, we qualified 22 enlisted personnel and five officers in submarine warfare.”After spending several holidays overseas, Montpelier Sailors are ready for their homecoming in Norfolk.“The crew is excited to return home to Norfolk, and looking forward to reunions with family and friends,” said Winter. “After six months under the waves, the crew is especially eager to take advantage of the many outdoor activities available in the Hampton Roads region.”Fast-attack submarines like Montpelier have multi-faceted missions. They use their stealth, persistence, agility and firepower to deploy and support special force operations, disrupt and destroy an adversary’s military and economic operations at sea, provide early strike from close proximity, and ensure undersea superiority.Montpelier is the third ship in the U.S. Navy to be named for the city of Montpelier, Vt. Built by the Newport News Shipbuilding Company and Drydock Company, the “Mighty Monty” was commissioned March 13, 1993. Montpelier was the first submarine to launch Tomahawk cruise missiles in Operation Iraqi Freedom.The submarine has a crew complement of 15 officers and 129 enlisted, 360-feet long, and can travel in excess of 25 knots.[mappress]Naval Today Staff , February 21, 2012; Image: hullnumber View post tag: Navy Training & Education View post tag: USS View post tag: station Back to overview,Home naval-today USS Montpelier Returns to Naval Station Norfolk View post tag: Norfolk View post tag: Navalcenter_img View post tag: News by topic February 21, 2012 View post tag: Returns View post tag: Montpelier Share this article USS Montpelier Returns to Naval Station Norfolklast_img read more

Fast five: This week in Wisconsin athletics

first_img1. The Road to Indy begins this weekAfter making the National Semifinals a year ago, the men’s basketball team brings high expectations and a No. 3 AP ranking into the 2014-2015 campaign. The Badgers kick off their season with an exhibition game this Wednesday against UW-Parkside with tipoff slated for 7 p.m. at the Kohl Center. 4. Will the volleyball team lose again?The Badgers have won 11 straight matches dating back to Sept. 24. Oh, and they haven’t lost a set since Oct. 4, a span of 25 straight set wins. 5. How many championships is too many?The Wisconsin men’s cross-country team has dominated the Big Ten over the years, and Sunday won its 15th Big Ten team title in the last 16 years. After tripping up a season ago with a third place finish, the Badgers won the title by 30 points this season, aided by the second straight individual title for Malachy Schrobilgen, who is only a sophomore. Out of the 100 total Big Ten championships for men’s cross-country, Wisconsin has taken 47 of them.Cross country back on top of Big TenMalachy Schrobilgen won an individual Big Ten title a season ago, but the Wisconsin men’s cross-country team still came up Read… 3. Men’s hockey renews its series with North Dakota this weekendWhen the Wisconsin men’s hockey team made the move for the Big Ten last season, it lost out on one of its premier rivalries with hated WCHA foe North Dakota. But the team formerly known as the Fighting Sioux is back on the Badgers’ schedule this year, and the two will fight Friday and Saturday night with some hockey in between.But the series has also featured some pretty good hockey over the years outside of the characteristic chippy play, including this save from Shane Connelly in a November 10 matchup from 2007. 2. Frank Kaminsky is pretty goodSpeaking of the men’s basketball team, the AP also announced Monday that senior center Frank Kaminksky is one of its preseason first team All-Americans. Besides averaging 13.9 points and 6.3 rebounds per game a season ago and playing a key role in the Final Four run, Kaminsky had this decent performance against North Dakota last November.last_img read more

NFL mock draft 2019: Giants begin rebuild; Steelers, Packers pick impact defenders

first_imgThe last time we gave you a 2019 NFL mock draft, it was all about prospect stock fluctuating based on results and rumors from the NFL Combine. Now we can account for the major events that shook things up from the teams’ perspectives in NFL free agency.The biggest development was the Browns giving up their first-rounder to the Giants in a trade for Odell Beckham Jr. With New York now picking twice in Round 1, at No. 6 and No. 17, some aftershocks have been sent across the board. MORE: NFL free agency winners & losersThere’s little change at the top and bottom of our latest NFL mock draft, but everything in the middle of the first round looks a lot different after free agency.NFL mock draft 20191. Arizona CardinalsKyler Murray, QB, OklahomaMurray squashed plenty of questions about his undersized frame by measuring better than expected (5-10, 207 pounds, 9 1/2-inch hands) at the Combine. His dynamic playmaking, backed by smarts and accuracy, has the Cardinals locked on Murray going to work in a Kliff Kingsbury passing offense suited to him, assuming they can move 2018 first-rounder Josh Rosen. Don’t be fooled by Arizona’s modest presence at Murray’s Pro Day. Team officials know him well at this point.2. San Francisco 49ersNick Bosa, DE, Ohio StateBosa would be a no-brainer for the 49ers if he were to fall to them. Pro Bowl tackle DeForest Buckner had a breakout pass-rush season, and fellow first-rounder Solomon Thomas found another gear after he slid inside. Bosa is a sleek edge force (6-4, 266 pounds) with even more upside than that of brother Joey.3. New York JetsJosh Allen, DE/OLB, KentuckyThe Jets need to get their edge pass rush going for new defensive coordinator Gregg Williams. Allen was productive in college and is loaded with the kinds of moves that will allow him to continue racking up sacks in the NFL. He also is capable of making plays in coverage.4. Oakland RaidersQuinnen Williams, DT, AlabamaThe Raiders would be in play for Allen, but if he’s gone, they would be fine making this pick for their defensive front. Williams is a massive (6-3, 303 pounds) and explosive inside disruptor. It’s hard to ignore his Aaron Donald-like potential after his meteoric rise through his final college season.5. Tampa Bay BuccaneersMontez Sweat, DE/OLB, Mississippi StateSweat crushed his Combine workouts, running the 40-yard dash in 4.41 seconds and recording a vertical of 36 inches, which is ridiculous at his size (6-6, 260 pounds). He translates that into relentless pursuit of the passer, and Todd Bowles will put him in positions to produce in a 3-4 defense right away.NFL DRAFT: All-time greatest draft steals6. New York GiantsJawaan Taylor, OT, FloridaTaylor (6-5, 312 pounds) offers agility, smarts and technique to handle most athletic edge-rushers. He has been rising up boards as scouts have realized he is not just relegated to right tackle; he can thrive better than anyone else in this class on the left side. For the Giants, though, he would be a major upgrade at right tackle to round out their line makeover that includes Nate Solder, Will Hernandez, Spencer Pulley and Kevin Zeitler.7. Jacksonville JaguarsD.K. Metcalf, WR, Ole MissThe Jaguars need a true No. 1 outside to help Nick Foles stretch the field and complement rising slot ace Dede Westbrook. Metcalf lived up to his reputation as a beast (6-3, 228 pounds) at the Combine with his blazing 40-yard dash time (4.33), high number of bench-press reps (27) and amazing vertical (40 1/2 inches). He is a classic size/speed prospect, and then some.8. Detroit LionsRashan Gary, DT/DE, MichiganGary, a versatile defender, can produce even better in Matt Patricia’s scheme than he did with the Wolverines. He uses his hands, power and big frame (6-4, 277 pounds) to occupy run-blockers. He also has some intriguing inside pass-rush ability.9. Buffalo BillsJonah Williams, OT, AlabamaThe Bills got more receiving help for Josh Allen in free agency with John Brown, Cole Beasley and Tyler Kroft to add to Robert Foster and Zay Jones, so they can focus on upgrading left tackle to complete a line overhaul that already includes Mitch Morse, Spencer Long and Ty Nsheke. Williams is a strong pass protector who also is big enough (6-4, 302 pounds) to pave the way in the running game.10. Denver BroncosDwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio StateJohn Elway has his new bridge QB in Joe Flacco, but he still needs to consider a first-rounder in 2019. Haskins cemented his draft stock late in the Buckeyes’ season, when he had some jaw-dropping games with his big arm and downfield accuracy. He has ideal size (6-3, 231 pounds) as a strong pocket passer with the right dose of athleticism. That checks the right boxes for Elway.NFL DRAFT: Best first-round picks since 200011. Cincinnati BengalsT.J. Hockenson, TE, IowaThe Bengals are retaining C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Eifert at the position in free agency, but with their injury issues, new offensive-minded coach Zac Taylor could use a big-time receiver and in-line blocker to help Andy Dalton and Joe Mixon while complementing A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd. Hockenson can be the next great all-around player at the position with his hands, physicality, smarts and agility. At 6-5, 251 pounds, he lived up to his billing at the Combine.12. Green Bay PackersDevin White, ILB, LSUWhite covers a ton of ground against the run, and also would upgrade the Packers intermediate coverage. He is easily the rangiest defender in the 2019 class and will thrive under Mike Pettine to round out the Packers’ front seven makeover. White showed off his elite speed and athleticism at the Combine in a compact package (6-0, 237 pounds).13. Miami DolphinsClelin Ferrell, DE, ClemsonThe Dolphins have a void at end after Cameron Wake left for the Titans, and they need a versatile cornerstone for Brian Flores’ defense. Ferrell is the best of the Clemson defensive line prospects because his size (6-4, 264 pounds) makes him a good outside run-stopper to add to his explosiveness as a pass-rusher.14. Atlanta FalconsEd Oliver, DT/DE, HoustonThe only question with Oliver — and a tough one for many teams — is what position he fits best on the defensive line. He has become more of an end/tackle tweener in many scouts’ eyes rather than the pure inside force that is Quinnen Williams, thus the separation on the board. But with coach Dan Quinn taking over the defense in Atlanta again, he would know how to use Oliver’s versatility in the Michael Bennett vein.15. Washington RedskinsDaniel Jones, QB, DukeJones has all-around, pro-tailored skills to go with his ideal size (6-5, 221 pounds), built up by NFL-friendly tutelage from Peyton and Eli Manning mentor David Cutcliffe. Jones also has the tough make-up that makes him a good successor to Alex Smith, with Case Keenum serving as only bridge insurance.NFL DRAFT: Biggest busts in draft history16. Carolina PanthersAndre Dillard, OT, Washington StateDillard backed up a big week of Senior Bowl practices with an impressive Combine performance. His athleticism was on full display to prove that, at 6-5, 315 pounds, he is the smoothest pass protector in this class. With the edge-rushers not lining up for the Panthers in this slot, they instead can go for someone who will keep those guys away from Cam Newton and his recovering shoulder.17. New York Giants (from Browns)Greedy Williams, CB, LSUThe Giants might need to part with this pick should they trade for Rosen, but for now, they should be fine stealing the draft’s best cornerback to fill a big need. Williams is a long, lean corner (6-2, 185 pounds) who has rare speed, quickness and agility for his size. He is not the most physical player, but he is fundamentally sound in coverage, and he uses his length at the line of scrimmage to break up routes.18. Minnesota VikingsCody Ford, G, OklahomaThe Vikings desperately need to improve their interior blocking around center Pat Elflein. Ford is a raw lineman better suited for guard who can first be a big asset in run blocking before rounding into a physical pass protector. Dalvin Cook and Kirk Cousins should approve.19. Tennessee TitansChristian Wilkins, DT/DE, ClemsonThe Titans have a need on Dean Pees’ three-man front with Bennie Logan unsigned. Wilkins can line up everywhere and is equally effective stopping the run outside and getting to the QB inside. He measured (6-3, 315 pounds) and tested as well as advertised at the Combine.20. Pittsburgh SteelersDevin Bush, ILB, MichiganBush did his best to match White athletically at the Combine, and the Michigan product proved his size (5-11, 234 pounds). Ryan Shazier was not much bigger, and Bush could have a similar impact in Pittsburgh.NFL DRAFT: Each team’s worst everregret21. Seattle SeahawksDalton Risner, OT, Kansas StateThe Seahawks need to upgrade from 2016 first-round disappointment Germain Ifedi at right tackle, and left tackle Duane Brown is 33. Risner is a technically sound lineman with a mean streak to pair with his physicality. He is being undersold as a pass blocker, but he is already a huge (6-3, 308 pounds) asset in the running game.22. Baltimore RavensMarquise Brown, WR, OklahomaAfter releasing Michael Crabtree and letting John Brown walk, the Ravens can start to think wideout more with Lamar Jackson in mind. Aptly nicknamed “Hollywood” for his Florida hometown, Brown has plenty of flash as a field-stretcher. At 5-9, 166 pounds, he has elite vertical speed and great quickness coming in and out of routes. Brown missed the Combine and the Sooners’ Pro Day coming off Lisfranc surgery, but he should be good to go for the heat of the offseason program.23. Houston TexansJosh Jacobs, RB, AlabamaThe Texans need to upgrade their running game with Lamar Miller slowing down and D’Onta Foreman being a durability concern. Jacobs (5-10, 220 pounds) is the best bet of any feature-type back early in the draft. There’s a bit of Ezekiel Elliott in him; he’s a smart, complete back who runs with great vision and power, and he is equally elusive as an outside runner and receiver.24. Oakland Raiders (from Bears)Brian Burns, DE/OLB, Florida StateBurns had 15.5 sacks in his final Seminoles season and was a borderline first-rounder until the Combine, where he arrived bulked up at 6-5, 245 pounds without showing a drop-off in his explosiveness. Coach Jon Gruden and GM Mike Mayock would be thrilled to get Burns and Quinnen Williams for their front.25. Philadelphia EaglesDeandre Baker, CB, GeorgiaThe Eagles could use an upgrade as their secondary was an injury-riddled mess last season and re-signed Ronald Darby feels like the only reliable starter. Baker is a smart, physical, press coverage presence to compensate. He backed up his size (5-11, 193 pounds) with good speed at the Combine.NFL DRAFT: Ranking first-round QBs since 200026. Indianapolis ColtsDexter Lawrence, DT, ClemsonThe Colts can think about best player available here to add beef to their defensive front under Matt Eberflus. Lawrence is a textbook inside run-stuffer with ideal size (6-4, 342 pounds).27. Oakland Raiders (from Cowboys)Drew Lock, QB, MissouriThe Raiders might think about Murray early should the Cardinals pass on him, but don’t be shocked if Oakland goes QB later in the first round to upgrade from Derek Carr and make better use of new weapons Antonio Brown and Tyrelll Williams. Lock has a big arm to go with his ideal size at 6-4, 228 pounds. He also has the fearlessness and elusiveness every NFL likes in an aggressive, downfield passer.28. Los Angeles ChargersJerry Tillery, DT, Notre DameAt 6-6, 295 pounds, Tillery was a beast as a three-technique in college, and he backed that up with a stellar Combine. He matured with his play and temperament to unleash his pass-rush skills in his final season with the Irish.29. Kansas City ChiefsByron Murphy, CB, WashingtonThe Chiefs were unable to keep Steven Nelson in free agency. Murphy is a smooth, fluid cover man. What he gives up in size and press potential (5-11, 190 pounds) he makes up for in speed, aggressiveness and ballhawking skills.30. Green Bay Packers (from Saints)Irv Smith, TE, AlabamaSmith is a technically sound run-blocker and route-runner who has shown vertical receiving juice to go with compact size (6-2, 242 pounds). He delivered a strong enough Combine to place himself behind Hockenson as the draft’s second best tight end. After getting White, the Packers can focus on a key offensive need with this pick.31. Los Angeles RamsJaylon Ferguson, OLB, Louisiana Tech Wade Phillips should a see a little Von Miller Lite in Ferguson, who shows some explosive pass-rush moves and has been productive in that area. He will be able to stay on the field in the NFL as a big (6-5, 259 pounds), natural run-stopper on the edge.32. New England PatriotsTrayvon Mullen, CB, ClemsonMullen has rebounded from an up-and-down final season with the Tigers to show off his great potential, strengthened by the Combine many expected. His size (6-1, 199), speed (4.46 in the 40-yard dash) and physicality make him the type of well-rounded prospect the Patriots like.last_img read more
