Titans QB Jake Locker made a shocking announcement today. He is leaving football. Locker released a statement this afternoon.

“I am retiring from football after much reflection and discussion with my family. I will always be grateful for having had the opportunity to realize my childhood dream of playing in the NFL and for the lifelong relationships I developed because of that experience. Football has always played a pivotal role in my life and I love the game, but I no longer have the burning desire necessary to play the game for a living; to continue to do so would be unfair to the next organization with whom I would eventually sign. I realize this decision is surprising to many, but I know in my heart that it is the right decision and I look forward to spending more time with my family and pursuing other interests.

Shoreham 2014 Russell WinnerThe Long Island, N.Y.-based high school is the recipient of the fourth annual “Fight Like Dylan Award,” which honors the courageous life of Dylan Rebeor, a high school football player who lost his battle to cancer and whose last wish was for new uniforms for his teammates. In honor of Dylan’s character, courage and consideration of others, Russell is awarding a $50,000 team uniform and equipment grant to Shoreham-Wading River High School for demonstrating determination through adversity.

To be eligible for the “Fight Like Dylan Award,” schools across the country submitted stories showing how their team overcame a challenge or triumphed in the face of adversity while embodying Dylan’s spirit and courage. Former pro football head coach and current NBC Sports Football analyst Tony Dungy and pro football players Mark Ingram, Pierre Garcon and Colt McCoy served on the “Fight Like Dylan Award” selection committee, along with Dylan’s mother, Heather Rebeor, and former Columbia Central High School head coach, Vance Belew.Russell 2014

The Shoreham-Wading River Wildcats suffered a tragic loss on October 2, 2014, when junior linebacker/offensive tackle Tom Cutinella passed away after colliding with an opponent during a regular season game. Cutinella was an outspoken leader on a Shoreham-Wading River team that was in the hunt for its first-ever Long Island (N.Y.) Class IV Football Championship, and whom just days before had pulled his team together to rally their spirits around the thought of being Long Island Champions.

Following the tragic incident, Tom’s family, friends, teammates and coaches decided that the best way to honor his memory was to play the rest of the season for their beloved teammate, and that is just what they did. Behind the motto of “Tommy Tough,” the Wildcats went on to finish the season with a 10-0 record and their first-ever championship.

To celebrate the award, select members of the Shoreham-Wading River High School community traveled to Orlando to be recognized and will receive the award during the Russell Athletic Bowl on December 29, 2014.

According to police reports Bironas was about a mile from his home when he apparently lost control of his SUV, left the roadway striking several trees and overturning. He was taken to Vanderbilt Medical Center where he was pronounced died.

The Titans released a statement that said, “We are deeply saddened to hear the tragic news from last night about Rob Bironas.”

“Rob made a significant impact as a player in his nine years with the team and more importantly touched many lives in the Nashville community off the field. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, Rachel, and his family during this very difficult time,” it continued.

Bironas married his wife, Rachel Bradshaw, in Nashville on June 28, 2014.

Bradshaw is the daughter of NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Terry Bradshaw.

The TSSAA Board of Control conducted their meeting August 11th and during the meeting they once again voted to change the state’s football classifications.

The current format was established in 2009 and has been under fire since it’s inception. This new idea was what coaches across the state were calling for.

The board voted to use the alternate 6-class plan for football classification for the remainder of the current classification period for schools in Division I (2015-16 and 2016-17 school years).

Once enrollment figures for the current school year are confirmed, the TSSAA will put the schools in the proposed classes. Schools then will have an opportunity to move up if they want. After that all schools would be placed in regions, with those configurations to be voted on or tweaked as necessary at the November Board of Control meeting.

The 32 largest schools based on enrollment will be placed in Class 6A and all 32 will automatically qualify for the playoffs. The remaining schools will be put in five classes, divided evenly based on their enrollment figures, and qualify for the playoffs as they did in the old 5-class system. The top 4 teams in each region (8 regions per class) will qualify for the playoffs.
