1 FOOTBALL: Brocker happy after first full-pads Rams practice. 9B Sports The Paducah Sun Friday, August 3, 2012 Section B Goode delivers, Paducah wins BY JOEY FOSKO Living dangerously, but still very much alive. That is Paducah Post 31 s status in the American Legion baseball state tournament after a second consecutive late-inning rally produced Thursday night s comefrom-behind 7-4 victory over Ashland at Brooks Stadium and took it to the winners bracket final. Paducah will take on Shelbyville at 4:30 p.m. today, hoping to avenge three losses in four previous meetings and earn a spot in Saturday s championship round. Sam Goode, who had hit the ball hard for line-drive outs in two of his previous three at-bats, lined a two-out, two-run single to give Paducah a 5-4 lead in the bottom of the seventh inning. Paducah (27-14) got a stellar relief outing from pitcher Jeremiah White, who Mayfield s late rally staves off elimination BY JOEY FOSKO Late-inning heroics have become the norm for Mayfield s American Legion baseball team. In the first round of the state tournament, Mayfield rallied for two runs in the ninth inning to tie Metcalfe County, only to lose the game in the bottom of the ninth. On a steamy Thursday afternoon, Mayfield topped its opening-round exploits, putting together a six-run uprising that sent defending state champion Danville home for the summer. Mayfield s 10-9 win over the Mustangs at St. Mary s Haas Field sends it into today s elimination game at 1 p.m. against the loser of Thursday night s Paducah-Ashland contest. We belong here, and we ve been telling the kids that, said Mayfield coach Andy Ford, now in his third season. This team is tough and while we know we re going to make some mistakes, they can find a way to overcome them. Mayfield trailed 8-4 going into the ninth, when Adam Riley drew a leadoff walk, went to third on pinch-hitter Logan Gordon s double and scored on a Zach Roethemeyer single. Danville, which had gotten innings of scoreless relief from Andrew Baxter, took him out to start the ninth and ended up using three relievers to get the final three outs. Gordon s double was one of only two hits in the inning for Mayfield, which also drew four walks and a hit batsman and benefited from two errors and a pair of balks. Nathan Williams, who was hit by a pitch with one out, eventually scored the go-ahead run on a bases-loaded walk to Ri- Please see MAYFIELD 3B American Legion state tournament scores (at Brooks Stadium) Thursday Losers bracket Mayfield 10, Danville 9 Owensboro 15, Campbellsville 2 Winners bracket Shelbyville 9, Metcalfe County 6 Paducah 7, Ashland 4 Today Owensboro vs. Metcalfe County 10 a.m. Mayfield vs. Ashland, 1 p.m. Paducah vs. Shelbyville, 4:30 p.m. Owensboro-Metcalfe winner vs. Mayfield-Ashland winner, 7:30 p.m. entered the game with Paducah facing a 4-1 deficit in the fifth inning.

Not two years after setting out on her own, Douglas beat Russia s Viktoria Komova for the all-around title Thursday night, becoming the third straight U.S. athlete to win gymnastics biggest prize and the first African- American to do so. It was her second gold medal of the London Games, coming two nights after she and her Fierce Five teammates gave the United States its first Olympic title since It feels amazing to be the Olympic champion, Douglas said. Puts her in a special category, too. Mary Lou Retton, Carly Patterson and Nastia Liukin are the only other Americans to win the Olympic all-around gold. The Americans have been looking for their next Mary Lou since she won in 1984, and now they ve got her in the 16-year-old Douglas. Throw in her adorable Flying Squirrel nickname and sweet backstory, and Douglas two gold medals certainly won t be her only riches. I haven t thought about that, Douglas said.

They re the fastest of the cars, track manager Leon Zeeb said. People that go to the races like to see speed and like to see action, and Super Late Models do put on a good show. I can see why they are a crowd favorite. Crate Late Models, Modifieds, Street Stocks and 4-cylinder Warriors will also be racing. Hot laps begin at 6:30 p.m., with qualifying to begin at 7. The track began timed qualifying for some classes as a way to set the heat races rather than by blind draw as in the past. That s something we ve brought back hoping to get more racecars out there, Zeeb said. I know a lot of them were wanting to qualify, and we said we d try it and see where we go with it. Zeeb said the Super Late Model drivers will be able to use tonight s race as a tune-up for the annual USA World 50 on Aug. 24. The track will also feature a driver appreciation pizza party in the pits before the racing. Admission remains at $12 for grandstand seating.

She s even managed to make Oprah Winfrey cry. Douglas had barely gotten off the medals stand when the talk show maven said on Twitter that she was so THRILLED for Gabby. Flowing happy tears!! Coach Liang Chow told Douglas the gold was hers after an electrifying floor routine, but she had to wait another five minutes until it was official.

THE FINE PRINT

3 Sports The Paducah Sun Friday, August 3, B Sports Briefs Same old Ben at Steelers training camp LATROBE, Pa. Tight spiral after tight spiral. Repeated deep balls lofted deftly into the waiting hands of a receiver not breaking stride. Ben Roethlisberger has looked as sharp as ever during practices throughout much of this Pittsburgh Steelers training camp this summer. The two-time Super Bowl champion appears anything like a quarterback who s being bothered by a shoulder injury as teammates, coaches and even Big Ben himself can attest to. He looks like the same old Ben to me, which is a great quarterback, veteran tight end Heath Miller said. Nothing new on that front. Roethlisberger revealed on Wednesday that he sustained a slight tear in his right rotator cuff during a game last November. The revelation caused a midafternoon stir at St. Vincent College Wednesday before Roethlisberger later assured, It s a serious non-issue, because I m just fine. He s looked it, too. Besides the fact he hasn t missed a full practice at camp and was a full participant all through Organized Team Activities and minicamp earlier this summer, Roethlisberger s arm has done the talking. Browns sold to Tennessee truck-stop magnate Here s one to make Cleveland fans shake their heads: A partial owner of the hated Pittsburgh Steelers is buying the Browns. Randy Lerner has reached a deal to sell the club to Tennessee truck-stop magnate Jimmy Haslam III a minority stockholder in the rival Steelers. Lerner will sell 70 percent of the Browns to Haslam now, with the other 30 percent reverting to him four years after the closing date, a person with knowledge of the sale told The on condition of anonymity because details have not officially been announced. This is a very exciting time for my family and me, Haslam said through the team. To own such a storied franchise as the Cleveland Browns, with its rich tradition and history, is a dream come true. We are committed to keeping the team in Cleveland and seeing it get back to the elite of the NFL something all Browns fans want and deserve. MAYFIELD CONTINUED FROM 1B ley. Eamon Hannan picked up the save, but he wasn t left unscathed, either, against a Danville lineup that included three Division I signees. Morehead State-bound Trey Gross drew a walk and scored on a double from East Tennessee state signee Andrew Lasure. Representing the potential tying run, Lasure moved to third on a fly ball but was stranded when Hannan struck out Cody Ross to end the game. Colton Aldridge, who drew a bases-loaded walk in the ninth, had a basesloaded triple and led the Mayfield offense, going 3-for-4 with a pair of passes and four RBI. We won a game at the Haslam scheduled a news conference at Browns headquarters for Friday afternoon. While the papers have been signed, the NFL still must approve the sale. Getting the nod from 24 of the 32 teams is required, and no date has been set for a vote because the sale has not been presented to the league yet. The person with knowledge of the sale said approval is expected by the end of September. ESPN reported the sale price was more than $1 billion. For comparison, the Miami Dolphins sold at a value of more than $1 billion in NCAA moves closer to penalties overhaul INDIANAPOLIS Nearly a year after promising to impose harsher sanctions on the most egregious rule-breakers, NCAA leaders endorsed a proposal Thursday that would make schools subject to the same crippling penalties handed to Penn State. The measure includes postseason bans of up to four years, fines that could stretch into the millions and suspensions for head coaches. A final vote on the sweeping overhaul won t occur before the board of directors October meeting. Coaches come to me and say, I feel like a chump. I m trying to do things the right way and I have peers who laugh at me because I don t play the game and bend the rules the way they do, board chairman Ed Ray said in a statement released by the NCAA. That s got to stop... Most coaches are terrific people who love their student-athletes, try to do it the right way, try to have the right values and succeed. They re very frustrated. This has got to stop. I think most coaches are saying it s about time. We want a level playing field. The plan calls for changing the current two-tiered penalty structure of major and secondary violations to a four-tiered concept, increasing the size of the infractions committee from 10 up to 24 in an effort to speed up the enforcement process and holding coaches individually accountable for any violations that occur in their program. state tournament two years ago, Ford said, but given the pressure of this game, coming from behind like we did, this is the biggest win we ve had. It s a step forward for the program. Mayfield Danville Riley, Goodgine (6), Carrico (9) and Roethemeyer, Gordon (9); Tiller, Baxter (2), Metcalfe (9), Cumpston (9), Caudill (9) and Lasure.

Records: Mayfield 24-15, Danville Call Joey Fosko, a Paducah Sun sports writer, at Rockies defeat Cardinals 8-2 DENVER Tyler Colvin hit a tiebreaking double and rookie Josh Rutledge homered in his fourth straight game, lifting the Colorado Rockies over the St. Louis Cardinals 8-2 Thursday night to avert a three-game sweep. Wilin Rosario hit his first career pinch-hit homer, a two-run shot off reliever Brian Fuentes in the eighth inning, and Jordan Pacheco went 3 for 3 with two doubles and two RBIs to help the Rockies snap a five-game losing streak. It was their first win in their last eight games at Coors Field. With the score deadlocked at 2, DJ LeMahieu singled off reliever Fernando Salas (1-4) to start the seventh inning and was sacrificed to second. Colvin then doubled to left to put the Rockies back on top. Rutledge followed with his fifth home run since his July 13 call-up, driving a 2-2 pitch into the left-field bleachers. He s the first rookie in Rockies history to homer in four consecutive games. Ramon Hernandez added a run-scoring double in the eighth and, one out later, Rosario connected on an 0-2 pitch from Fuentes for his 17th home run. LEGION CONTINUED FROM 1B walks and nine strikeouts. At one point, he struck out eight of 10 hitters and threw 60 strikes in an 83-pitch effort. He went to a three-ball count on only one of the 18 hitters he faced. I m more of a reliever now, not really a starter, and it seems to fit me well, said White, who was also exemplary in relief in two of his three outings in last week s district tournament. I m used to pitching a lot, two or three days a week, because I did it a lot in high school (for Paducah Tilghman), and I m just throwing the ball better. White came on for starter Jack Coleman, who was besieged by control problems and sloppy defense behind him. Second baseman Reed Vaughan, normally a very reliable fielder, committed three errors in the first two innings, contributing to three unearned runs. Coleman walked five batters and threw 100 pitches in four innings, giving up just one earned run. Paducah kept chipping away at Ashland starter Logan Salow, a left-hander who will be a high school senior this fall but has committed to play at Eastern Kentucky University. Center fielder Will Montgomery, playing his final game for Paducah because he has St. Louis Cardinals Matt Holliday strikes out in his first at-bat facing Rockies Alex White during the first inning of a baseball game on Thursday in Denver. With St. Louis trailing 1-0, Rockies starter Alex White started the sixth by striking out his counterpart, Lance Lynn, to retire his 10th consecutive Cardinals batter. Skip Schumaker then singled and scored when Jon Jay followed with a double to the leftcenter gap. Matt Holliday was intentionally walked and Carlos Beltran hit a run-scoring double to put the Cardinals in front. David Freese was to be at the University of Kentucky today to participate in its athletic training program, cut the deficit to 4-2 with a fifth-inning triple and scored on a single by lead-off hitter Caleb Crim, who was 3-for-4 with a walk and drove in two runs. In the seventh, Goode smacked a fastball to the gap in right-center field, scoring Crim and Cole Womack, who had entered the game for Vaughan. Both had drawn one-out walks against a tiring Salow, who had gone over the 100-pitch mark in the sixth and gave up Goode s single on his 125th offering. I figured I would have one find a spot sometime, said Goode, who had lined out to left field and center field in earlier at-bats. It s hard to be patient when that stuff happens, but he got a fastball on the outer half, and it found a hole. It was pretty much the same pitch I had hit twice before.

Rex Brothers (6-2) relieved and got Lance Berkman to ground into an inning-ending double play. The Rockies tied it at 2 in the bottom half on a sacrifice fly by Pacheco, his second RBI of the night. He singled in the fourth to drive in Carlos Gonzalez, who was aboard with a double. White, recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs West Kentucky Open tee times before the game, allowed two runs and five hits. He struck out three and walked one. Lynn went six innings and gave up two runs on seven hits. He struck out four and walked four.

The 15-year-old, German-bred mare has been the source of political jokes and Democratic ads questioning how U.S. Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney can presume to know the problems of ordinary Americans when he inhabits the rarefied world of dressage. Romney s wife Ann was in the VIP section of the equestrian stadium at Greenwich Park for Rafalca s competition, watching literally from the edge of her seat as the mare completed the 7-minute Grand Prix test. it, said Komova, her silver medal buried in the pocket of her warm-up jacket. Douglas, meanwhile, was grinning ear to ear. Up in the stands, her mother, Natalie Hawkins, embraced her children and then shared a long hug with Missy Parton, whose family took Douglas in after she moved to West Des Moines, Iowa, and now counts her as one of their own. She inspires me, Hawkins said, referring to her champion. To keep it together in that moment when it meant so much says a lot about her. When Douglas first told her mother she wanted to move to train with Chow, who coached Shawn Johnson, Hawkins was deadset against it. A single mother, she couldn t uproot her family, and there was no way she was going to allow her youngest child go off by herself. But Douglas two older sisters lobbied on her behalf, giving their mother a list of reasons why Gabby should be allowed to move. The only reason to stay: They would miss her. The move was hard on Douglas, too. Though the Partons treat her like their fifth daughter and are now so close to Hawkins they may as well be related, Douglas missed her family and her dogs. As recently as January, she secondguessed her decision. But she also knew Chow and his wife, Li Zhuang, could get her where she wanted to go. We had to work with her consistency, said Martha Karolyi, coordinator of the U.S. women s team. She had the skills. She had the lightness. She was flying all the time, but sometimes she would get out of control. But we worked on that, and it really helped that Chow has this very nice temper, that very calmly he was able to make the corrections and strongly spell out the expectations to her. Like 10 days ago. Douglas has made a stunning rise this year, going from someone who couldn t stay on a piece of equipment at last year s U.S. championships to beating world champ Jordyn Wieber at last month s Olympic trials. She was now one of the favorites, and being in the spotlight became a little too much to take. I think she was a little bit scared of what s ahead of her. That s big pressure, Chow said. Known for his easy smile and warm personality, Chow pulled Douglas aside for a pep talk. Whatever he said worked, because she s been unflappable since she first took the floor in London. 409 Bleich Road (Behind K-Mart) Mon.-Sat. 6am - 3pm 125 S. 3rd St $ 7.55 $ 1.99 ALL DAY BREAKFAST SPECIAL 2 EGGS, HASH BROWNS, & TOAST $ 2.99 CHEESEBURGER AND FRIES Breakfast served all day y Italian Village Pizza LARGE PIZZA, CHEESE PLUS 2 TOPPINGS OR ANY 2 SUBS OF YOUR CHOICE.

It turns out that included one last win over Ryan Lochte. Phelps finally got a gold all his own at his final Olympics. Adding to an already unprecedented medal collection, he claimed his first individual victory of the London Games and handed Lochte a double disappointment on his rival s final night in the pool Thursday. Phelps set the tone right from the start with a dominating butterfly leg to become the first male swimmer to win the same individual event at three straight Olympics in the 200-meter individual medley. He claimed his 20th career medal and 16th gold in 1 minute, United States Michael Phelps leads compatriot Ryan Lochte in the men s 200-meter individual medley swimming final at the Aquatics Centre in the Olympic Park during the 2012 Summer Olympics Thursday in London. seconds, just off his winning time in Beijing but still good enough for gold, ahead of Lochte. When it was done, there wasn t that water-pounding celebration we ve seen so many times from Phelps just a slight smile as he hung on the lane rope, gazing up at the stands and soaking it all in. Going into every call room, I said it s my last semifinal or my last prelim, Phelps said, reflecting on a busy day that included a morning swim, then two more races in the evening. We re kind of chalking up all the lasts of certain things.

MTV, Comedy Central and Nickelodeon is battling declining audience trends at its TV networks.

Still, Wall Street expects Viacom will report today that its earnings improved in the third quarter. Procter & Gamble s 4Q The world s largest consumer product maker has been retooling its international growth plans. Wall Street will be listening for an update on the strategy today when Procter & Gamble reports fourth-quarter results. In May, Procter & Gamble said it was rethinking its overseas expansion and would focus on its biggest and most profitable markets abroad. The company is also in the midst of a cost-cutting program aimed at saving $10 billion by fiscal Jobs report Economists anticipate that July job figures out today will trump the previous month s tally. The U.S. gained only 80,000 jobs in June, the third month in a row that the economy created fewer than 100,000 jobs. That was a reversal from the first three months of the year, when job gains averaged 226,000 per month. The slowdown in job growth has raised concerns that employers may be holding back on plans to expand payrolls.

That s bad news for many investors in foreign stock mutual funds. Say your fund owns stock in Total, the French oil giant. Over the last 12 months its stock price is up 1.5 percent, when measured in euros. But when the investment is converted into dollars, Total s stock has dropped 13.1 percent. The dollar s rise also has hit dollardenominated returns for stocks traded in Brazil, India and Japan. The unfavorable exchange rates come on top of the mediocre performance of many foreign markets due to the slowing global economy. Talk about kicking someone when they re down, says Alec Young, global equity strategist for S&P Capital IQ. One way to blunt the impact is to look for mutual funds that trade futures contracts to protect themselves from changes in currency valuations. This is called hedging. The Tweedy, Browne Global Value fund (TBGVX) hedges, for example. It is up 10 percent this year, better than 99 percent of all other foreign large-cap value stock funds. Following requests from investors, the firm launched an unhedged version of the fund (TBCUX) in They wanted to benefit from what at the time was a falling dollar. This second fund follows the same stock-picking philosophy and shares eight of the hedged fund s top 10 holdings. But it has returned 6.5 percent this year, or 35 percent less than the hedged fund s returns. Other funds that can hedge include Dodge & Cox International Stock fund (DODFX) and Oakmark International (OAKIX), which both carry four-star ratings from Morningstar.

U.S. retailers reported better-than-expected revenue in July. Shoppers spending lifts economic mood NEW YORK Shoppers showed some spending muscle in July, once summer clearance sales and the hottest July in 50 years got them in the mood. Solid sales reports from retailers Thursday took some of the sting out of weak June manufacturing data. And improving trends in unemployment benefit applications provide hope for slightly better job growth in coming months a day before the government reports on July employment. U.S. retailers reported better-than-expected July revenue in stores open at least a year, an encouraging sign at the beginning of the back-to-school season, the second-biggest shopping season behind the holidays. A preliminary compilation by the International Council of Shopping Centers of 20 retailers found revenue in stores open at least a year rose 4.6 percent in July, higher than the 3 percent to 3.5 percent the ICSC expected. Economists watch the numbers because consumer spending accounts for 70 percent of U.S. economic activity. The figures are a key measure of retailers health because they exclude newly opened and closed stores. Analysts said it was a positive sign that Americans hit the mall, undaunted by the fact that there are few signs that the economy is improving. I think the U.S. consumer surprised a lot of people, said Chris Donnelly, global industry managing director for retail at Accenture. When you look at income, the savings rate, and unemployment, there s still a lot of cause for pessimism, but the U.S. consumer is amazingly resilient and has spurts of spending. The reeling European economy isn t helping. Stocks slumped Wednesday after The European Central Bank decided against taking new action to attack the continent s debt crisis. And a pair of government reports Tuesday pointed to more weakness with U.S. manufacturing and only slight improvement in the slumping job market. Companies placed fewer orders with U.S. factories in June than May. The Commerce Department said orders fell 0.5 percent, the third decline in four months. And orders that signal business investment plans dropped 1.7 percent, pulled down by less demand for computers and machinery. The number of Americans seeking weekly unemployment benefits rose by 8,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 365,000, the Labor Department said in a separate report. Seasonal distortions caused by fewer temporary layoffs in the auto industry this summer may have skewed the number higher, Labor officials said. Still, economists said the trend in unemployment benefits has improved since rising this spring. The four-week average, a less volatile measure, fell for the sixth straight week to 365,500, the lowest since March 31. That could signal slightly better job growth in the coming months. The Labor Department reports today on July unemployment and hiring. Economists expect employers added 100,000 jobs and the unemployment rate stayed stuck at 8.2 percent.

In addition, Trunkline would abandon in place a portion of existing compression horsepower at the Pollock, Epps, Shaw, Independence, and Joppa Compressor Stations located along the pipeline. Trunkline has commenced the federal regulatory process a process that is focused on determining whether or not the abandonment of the proposed facilities will be in the public interest and necessity as determined by the FERC. This project was designated as the Trunkline Mainline Abandonment and has been assigned Docket No. CP by the FERC. About Trunkline Gas Company, LLC Trunkline is a natural gas company as defined by the Natural Gas Act, engaged in the transmission of natural gas in interstate commerce, subject to the jurisdiction of the FERC. Trunkline s transmission system extends from its historical sources of supply in the states of Texas, Louisiana, and offshore Texas and Louisiana through Arkansas, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois and Indiana to a principal terminus at the Indiana- Michigan state line near Elkhart, Indiana. The Trunkline Mainline Abandonment Much of Trunkline s customer base no longer relies upon the system to meet market demand. This issue has been exacerbated by the recent emergence of gas supplies nearer to market areas and the construction of new pipelines across the country. The Trunkline Mainline Abandonment would permit the facilities to be converted from an industry with surplus capacity to one with significant capacity needs. Trunkline has requested FERC authorization by April 1, 2013, with continued operation of the facilities until they are physically taken out of natural gas service, which is anticipated to occur on November 1, Copies of the Project Application If you are interested in obtaining additional information on the Trunkline Mainline Abandonment, below is a list of local libraries where a copy of the FERC certificate application is available.

Clinton, KY What are the Benefits? The abandonment of the pipeline facilities will allow them to be converted to a much more productive use of transporting crude oil from the Midwest south to the Texas-Louisiana Gulf Coast area. The abandonment will allow for an existing pipeline to be utilized in lieu of having to construct a new pipeline to perform the crude oil transportation service. Trunkline will utilize the remaining natural gas pipeline in order to satisfy remaining natural gas service requirements. How to get Additional Information There are several ways to get additional information and stay informed. The certificate application and a publication named An Interstate Natural Gas Facility on My Land - What do I need to know? is available on the FERC s Web site at using the elibrary link and the For Citizens link, respectively.

If you are a stakeholder whose land may be impacted by the abandonment, you may have already received material in the mail and may have been contacted by a land agent. Trunkline also has contacted many of your local representatives to introduce the project and answer questions and concerns. A separate notice concerning the application is being mailed to affected landowners and government agencies involved in the project. 3

9 Sports The Paducah Sun Friday, August 3, B Brockers happy after first full-pad Rams practice EARTH CITY, Mo. Michael Brockers said it was nice to finally hit someone after the St. Louis Rams took to the field Thursday night for their first practice with full pads. Oh, yeah, loved it, said the rookie defensive tackle out of LSU. As a defensive player that s what you love to see. That s what you love to do. You love to hit. We got out here in our pads and we got a little thumping going on. The Rams practiced for just over two hours and will have a similar session Friday in preparation for a scrimmage Saturday at the Edward Jones Dome. It provided the first glimpse of Brockers in gear and gave everyone a better idea about his transition to the NFL. Other than the actual contact, Brockers, the 14th overall pick in this year s draft, said he felt no different than when he reported for organized team activities this past spring. Linebacker James Laurinaitis said from his vantage point the rookie did a dang good job. While he withheld a final verdict of Brockers first day in pads until he watches the film, Laurinaitis said he continued to be impressed by how quick the 6-foot-5, 322-pounder is and that he demonstrated what many players don t when the pads are put on. There s a lot of guys that look amazing when it s just helmets and there s no contact, Laurinaitis said. When the contact comes around, it really starts to change a little bit. Brockers seemed anything but in awe of his surroundings during or after practice. Titans see competition at guard NASHVILLE, Tenn. For four seasons now, Fernando Velasco has been looking for an opportunity. The undrafted free agent first came to the Titans in 2008 and promptly got injured at the start of his first training camp. Since that time, he spent nearly two years on the practice squad and last year as a backup guard and center. But now, Velasco is finally getting a chance to be considered for a starting role, primarily at right guard. The primary competition for Velasco is Leroy Harris, a two-year starter at left guard, who is trying to stay in the lineup by moving over to the right side after the Titans signed seven-time Pro Bowl selection Steve Hutchinson as a free agent. For a guy like me, it s fine. As athletes, that s all we want to do is have a chance to compete. That s the fun part about it is getting a chance to compete, said Velasco, who played both center and guard at the University of Georgia. The Titans have said that Velasco might also find himself in the center mix, where For a guy like me, it s fine. As athletes, that s all we want to do is have a chance to compete. That s the fun part about it is getting a chance to compete. Eugene Amano and Kevin Matthews are in a position battle as well. But thus far in camp, Velasco has mostly been at right guard. For me it doesn t matter what position, I just want to play, Velasco said. I don t want to be picky. I ll let them decide that. With all the guys they ve got playing both positions, I think they re going to mix and match them and see what the best combination is. I m not picky, I just want to be part of the five. Harris knows that feeling as well. Until he became a starter in 2010, he spent three seasons as a backup guard and center himself, even getting a spot start at right tackle once in So moving over from left to right guard isn t a big deal, if it means staying in the Titans starting lineup. Fernando Velasco Free agent Moving to the other side, I don t mind it, Harris said. I ve been fortunate enough to play a bunch of positions while I ve been here, so moving to right guard is not that big of a deal. It s just the switching of the feet and getting comfortable with (right tackle David Stewart, and getting comfortable with the footwork. Thus far in camp, offensive line coach Bruce Matthews has kept Harris, and Amano, the Titans starting center the past two years, in with the first team, though a true competition has been promised. Right now, it s just a matter of them getting work. They re all getting an equal amount of work, whether it s with the ones or the twos, Matthews said. WIN $ 1,000!
