Video: Jalen “Teez” Tabor Buys Local Homeless Man New Shoes

first_imghomeless man new with new sneakers.Periscope/_31FlavorzJalen Tabor, Florida’s All-SEC cornerback, is having a very interesting week. On Wednesday, the Gator defensive back was suspended for a practice fight with tight end C’yontai Lewis which reportedly involved swinging helmets. On Friday, he fulfilled a very cool promise to a local homeless man.Friday morning, Tabor tweeted that he saw the man, who had no shoes, and said he was going to buy him a pair.Seen a homeless man with no shoes on today , going to go buy him some shoes— Teez Tabor (@_31Flavorz) August 19, 2016Trying to make his day a little better— Teez Tabor (@_31Flavorz) August 19, 2016Gotta give back to those who are less fortunate than you— Teez Tabor (@_31Flavorz) August 20, 2016An hour later, he streamed the interaction on Periscope. He gave the man a pair of sharp blue sneakers, and $22 for food.LIVE on #Periscope https://t.co/eKdtYQ3qYz— Teez Tabor (@_31Flavorz) August 20, 2016Sometimes in life you do nothing wrong but God wants to see how you handle adversity— Teez Tabor (@_31Flavorz) August 20, 2016Jalen Tabor is one of Florida’s best players, and definitely among the Gators most interesting personalities. This offseason, he’s made numerous headlines for his very outward trolling of SEC East favorite Tennessee, which has not won a game against Florida since 2004. The Vols are an interesting target for Tabor, however, as he was one of two UF players suspended for their game last season.After the reported fight with Lewis, Tabor will also miss this season’s opener against UMass at home. The Minutemen shouldn’t really stand a chance at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, but a practice fight is a pretty common occurrence in football, and one that rarely warrants a full game suspension, so one can imagine how bad it must have been.Last season, Tabor started nine of Florida’s 13 games, racking up 40 tackles, four interceptions, and scored two touchdowns off of the picks.last_img read more

Foster: Al-Araibi situation now an absolute emergency

first_imgAfter meeting with FIFA secretary general Fatma Samoura on Monday, Craig Foster has declared the plight of Bahraini refugee Hakeem Al-Araibi ‘an absolute emergency’.The professional footballer has been detained in Thailand over the past two months and faces deportation back to Bahrain where he will likely be imprisoned and possibly tortured, according to Amnesty International, for speaking out against the royal family. Foster has led the push to see Al-Araibi released and is putting increasing pressure on FIFA to act swiftly after Bahrain submitted official documents for his extradition.

5 College Football Coaches Who Could Be Fired In 2018

(Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty Images)The 2018 college football season is still a couple of months away, but it’s never too early for hot seat rankings. Which college football coaches need to win (and perhaps win big) in 2018 in order to keep their jobs? Here are five potential coaches on the hot seat.5 coaches on the hot seat entering 2018Texas Tech’s Kliff KingsburyKingsbury has been hyped up a lot, but the results haven’t been there yet. If the Red Raiders don’t have a good 2018, he will probably be out.Kansas’ David BeattyBeatty is 3-33. The Jayhawks just fired their athletic director. Not much more needs to be said.Georgia Tech’s Paul JohnsonJohnson has built Georgia Tech into a respectable, often formidable ACC program, but they’ve had losing seasons in 2 of the last 3 years. Some think it might be time for a change of direction if 2018 isn’t successful.BYU’s Kalani SitakeBYU is a proud program that had a brutal 2017, going 4-9. The Cougars have been rumored to be wanting to make a run at Navy’s Ken Niumatalolo and that could happen if 2018 isn’t a winning year.Illinois’ Lovie SmithIt would cost Illinois a lot of money to fire Smith in 2018, so it’s most-likely not going to happen. But the Fighting Illini didn’t commit to Smith to go 5-19 in two seasons. If 2018 is another disastrous campaign, maybe a change will come. Probably, though, Smith is safe until at least 2019.last_img read more
