Promoter of the IAAF silver label Okpekpe International 10km Road Race, Mike Itemuagbor, has hailed Kenyan athlete, Simon Cheprot for his heroic feat at the 7th edition of the race held last Saturday in Okpekpe, Edo State.The lanky Cheprot who won the Okpekpe race men’s title in 2016 and was first runner up last year won the hearts of fans both at the venue and those watching live on television across the African continent when he stopped to help a rival who collapsed towards the end of the race.Cheprot helped his colleague across the finish line before beckoning on the medical team at the finish for aid. The Kenyan was rewarded with $10,000 for his humanitarian effort and Itemuagbor said what Cheprot did is the true definition of sportsmanship.”Simon (Cheprot) may not have fulfilled his ambition of becoming the first athlete (man or woman) to win two Okpekpe titles since 2013 when we began this race but he came to Okpekpe this year, ran and left as the hero. He did not win any medals but he won hearts.“While running, his colleague collapsed and on instinct, Simon picked him up; held tight to him and lifted him. That ended his race. But he saved a life. In 2016, Simon came first at Okpekpe; was second last year. Now, in 2019, he won hearts. One of our partners gave him $2,000,former Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole added $3,000 before Edo State’s Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu increased the reward from $5000 to $10,000 with an additional $5000.But most significantly, everybody hailed his “brother’s keeper” attitude. This is what is called sportsmanship. Simon gave proper consideration for fairness, ethics, respect, and a sense of fellowship with his competitors. He is our hero, he is the hero of the seventh edition of the race,” Itemuagbor gushed with excitement.Bahrain’s Dawit Fikadu (29.03) and Kenya’s Sheila Chelangat (32.59) won the men and women’s titles while a couple, Emmanuel Gyang Gwon and Deborah Pam emerged the best Nigerian athletes at this edition.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
JC FOOTBALL: Pressley gains 249 yards in win over Saddleback. By Dave Thorpe STAFF WRITER El Camino College running back Tavares Pressley said he’d been irritated after a couple of unproductive weeks carrying the ball. If so, he certainly blew off some steam on Saturday night. “You’ve got to hit the hole hard against Saddleback, and he was great at that tonight,” Featherstone said. Pressley’s third carry of the night was the first run he broke, going 27 yards for a touchdown midway through the second quarter. He broke his 74-yard run with 1:12 left in the second quarter to tie the score, 17-17, which brought El Camino (4-1) back from a 17-2 deficit early in the second quarter. “I told Tavares this was your week to re-emerge,” Featherstone said. “He’s been banged up a little and now he’s healthy. And that was one of the most impressive individual performances we’ve ever had.” It took No. 8-ranked El Camino a quarter to get going before its linemen on both sides of the ball started dominating. In the first quarter, Saddleback’s linemen controlled the line of scrimmage. “The adjustment we made was just getting our minds ready,” Gant said. “We weren’t focused. We had to get momentum and read the linebackers better.” El Camino’s defense stepped up in the fourth quarter during both of Saddleback’s possessions. A sack by John Finau and a deflection by Darrin Minor on a pass by Brian Shrock (19-for-30, 227 yards, two touchdowns, three interceptions) stymied the Gauchos’ first drive of the fourth quarter. Saddleback (4-1) drove 68 yards to the El Camino 2-yard line late in the fourth quarter. But on second-and-goal from the Warriors 2-yard line, Lamar Chapman intercepted a short pass on the 1-yard line with 3:09 left in the game. El Camino was nearly pinned on its 1-yard line, but Boo Jackson threw a 12-yard completion to Greg Moore on third-and-10. Three plays later El Camino had to punt. Brendon Lamers not only picked the snap on a bounce, he also unloaded a 51-yard punt as he was hit. Saddleback was called for roughing the punter, and El Camino had the ball back with 33 seconds left. Jackson bounced back from a rough start to finish 15-for-25 for 281 yards and a touchdown. Jackson had two first-half interceptions. But from late in the second quarter to the end of the game, Jackson was 11-for-12 passing for 214 yards and a touchdown. “He shakes it right off and comes back strong,” Featherstone said. It marked an impressive ending to a tough nondivision schedule that saw ECC win four of five games against top-ranked opponents. El Camino lost to No. 1 Bakersfield on the last play of the game. “We’re one play away from being undefeated against one of the toughest early-season schedules we’ve ever had,” Featherstone said. email@example.com.

Pressley had 13 carries for 175 yards and three touchdowns and added a 74-yard touchdown reception as El Camino handed No. 2 Saddleback its first loss, 31-24, in a Mission Conference interdivision game at Murdock Stadium. Pressley opened the season with a pair of solid games, combining for 255 yards and four touchdowns on 25 carries. But he followed that up by carrying the ball 23 times for 26 yards and no touchdowns the last two games. El Camino coach John Featherstone said Pressley was dealing with nagging injuries, but the sophomore didn’t use that as an excuse. He simply said it was time to produce again. “It felt great, like a big relief,” Pressley said. “I’ve basically been frustrated for a couple of weeks, and being frustrated made me more motivated.” Early in the fourth quarter with the score tied, 24-24, Pressley took a screen pass from Boo Jackson, made a move inside then turned it outside and ran down the sideline untouched for a 74-yard touchdown. Earlier, Pressley scored on runs of 74, 27 and 11 yards and finished with 249 all-purpose yards. In the second quarter, the right side of El Camino’s offensive line, featuring sophomores Cedric Mack (6-foot-4, 330 pounds) and Jarret Gant (6-2, 325), started creating big holes, and Pressley took advantage, using his speed to outrun Saddleback’s linebackers and secondary.
