City were heavily linked with Messi recently but a move for the six-time world player of the year did not materialise as the Argentinian opted to stay with Barcelona. It looked at one stage as though City were in pole position for the superstar when it emerged he was calling time on his Barca career. But just days after City were given encouragement, it was announced that Messi would be staying to play at the Camp Nou this season. It proved to be a false dawn for City, but Guardiola was not willing to discuss how seriously City entertained the idea of signing Messi.Advertisementlast_img read more

Former Courier offensive MVP takes field as Howard starting QB

first_imgby Malik VincentIn his debut as the starting quarterback of the Howard Bison, former Perry star and 2010 New Pittsburgh Courier City League offensive MVP completed 15 of 27 passes for 105 yards in a 41-9 loss against nonconference Eastern Michigan.“He made some freshman mistakes, but they did not do a good job of protecting him,” Howard head football coach Gary Harrell said. “He will learn from this experience.” He is also coached by the record-setting former Bison quarterback Ted White, who is now the team’s offensive coordinator.“Overall, he did pretty good, but he has a lot to work on,” White said. “He did OK on managing first downs, but on third down situation, he has to have a better understanding and execute better.”The 6-foot-3, 200 pound quarterback fits right into their offensive scheme, which is the same one that he ran at Perry.“There are a lot of elements that go into our scheme here at Howard,” McGhee said. “One play, we can be in a pro-form set, then the next we can end up in the spread. There are also some sets where we end up with two tight ends in the formation. The only big difference that I’ve noticed is that in the college game you have to step in the huddle and call those plays with confidence. You have to be a real leader.”McGhee admitted going into the game against Eastern Michigan with a “chip on his shoulder,” because they recruited him and eventually withdrew the offer.But in retrospect, McGhee said the decision to come to Howard was a good one. Not only is he installed as both the team’s starting quarterback as a freshman, but he will get to work with White, a former All-American who played several years on Sundays in the NFL.“The thing that I love most about playing under Coach White is the fact that he constantly pushes me,” McGhee said. “He knows how important it is for me to not only display my talent on the field, but for me to become a true leader both on and off the field. He pushes me hard in workouts, makes me sit in the front row at meetings, makes me prepare hard before the games in film sessions. It’s been great being under him so far.”The Bison will next take on Morehouse at the Nation’s football classic, Sept. 10, at RFK stadium in Washington, DC. Kickoff is scheduled for 3:30 p.m.(Malik Vincent can be reached at malikvincent@gmail.com.)
