Trojans have safety valve

admin no comments

first_imgIn 2004, Ware and Bing, who battled a sprained shoulder that eventually required off-season surgery, split time with Jason Leach as USC’s safeties. Their task has been even more challenging this season as several injuries to the Trojans’ cornerbacks have weakened USC’s pass defense (ranked 73rd in the nation, allowing over 227 yards per game) and required the soft-spoken Bing, in particular, to take on a leadership role. “The last two years I wasn’t really the guy that would speak a lot because I had Jason Leach back there helping me out,” Bing said. “This year I felt like I had to speak a little bit more than I usually do.” If USC’s defense is vulnerable to the pass, it might make up for it with its big-play ability. The Trojans defenders entered bowl season with the most forced turnovers in the nation (37). Bing has a team-high four interceptions. Ware has two forced fumbles with one fumble recovery and one interception. “They’ve got a pretty good secondary,” Texas receiver Billy Pittman said. “I mean, they’re playing against some of the best offenses in the nation. I think they deserve more credit.” Against Texas, the job of a safety becomes an exceptional, mutli-faceted challenge. Longhorns tight end David Thomas is Texas’ leading pass catcher (40 receptions) and coverage will fall heavily on Bing. “Their tight ends are capable of having a big game and they do enough things with them, big downfield-type of throws to give them a chance to do that,” USC head coach and defensive coordinator Pete Carroll said. “It’s up to Darnell to do a really good job on those guys … he’ll be in the area quite a bit.” Texas’ receivers, much like USC’s group last year, has developed quickly from a bunch of unknowns into a strong force. “They have pretty good receivers, they’re fast, they’re capable of making things happen after catching the balls,” Bing said. “I think we have a big challenge with this game.” Oh yeah, and then there’s that Young guy. When the Heisman runner-up tucks the ball down to run, USC safeties will need to be in the right place to avoid another highlight-reel performance from the Texas quarterback. “There’s really three opportunities, the original play and then when he takes off and runs or moves out and throws the football,” Carroll said. “You can imagine it’s hard enough defending one play than defending three plays, and you don’t know which one you’re getting after it starts.” It’s a tough job that requires two tough individuals. A two-headed safety blanket that hasn’t let down the Trojans yet. [email protected] (626) 962-8811, ext. 2239 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! From differing expectations came similar excellence as Bing and Ware have formed a formidable tandem in the Trojans’ defensive backfield. Bing is a ball-hawking strong safety and Ware a helmet-rattling free safety. They’re the strength in USC’s supposed weakness – an injury-riddled secondary. And they’ll be the Trojans’ last line of defense against Texas’ superstar quarterback Vince Young, a strong group of tight ends and an underrated receiving corps during Wednesday’s BCS championship game at the Rose Bowl.

Both players were starters at safety the moment they set foot on the field in cardinal and gold. For Bing, it was expected. The 6-foot-2, 200-pound junior was all-everything in high school and has shown enough talent to moonlight at practice as tailback and currently returns kickoffs along with his duties at strong safety. Ware was less of a slam dunk, even after gaining junior college All-America honors at Santa Rosa Junior College in 2003. “For me, it’s been crazy coming from a junior college, you know, making the decision out of high school not to take a scholarship to a (NCAA Division) I-AA school and decide that I could play better football than that and waiting it out,” Ware said, “and then coming here and getting put right in my first year.” center_img BEVERLY HILLS – Darnell Bing was one of USC’s biggest recruits in recent years, another in a long line of Long Beach Poly standouts so deeply coveted that Athletic Director Mike Garrett, a former Trojans star running back and Heisman Trophy winner, took his own No. 20 jersey number out of retirement. Scott Ware was a player from Northern California who barely earned a glimmer of attention in high school before earning his reputation and a scholarship at USC after a strong stint at a junior college. last_img read more

first_img Categories: Howrylak News,News 18May Howrylak’s public safety reform plan signed into law Sheriff, doctor, judge to consider an inmate’s release for health-related reasonsState Rep. Martin Howrylak’s plan to allow a medical doctor, sheriff and the court to determine if a medically frail inmate is eligible for compassionate release or medical probation is now law.“This will secure public safety while also saving money for county residents,” said Howrylak of Troy. “There are added costs to county jails when there are seriously ill individuals serving criminal sentences, such as for health care or for overtime to officers who transport the individual. Why not have key officials, such as sheriffs, doctors and the court work together to find what is best for the specific inmate on a case-by-case basis?”When an individual is incarcerated, the jail is required to pay for medical treatment while the person is in custody. When outside of jail, Medicaid or private insurance can be used to provide health care coverage.In order to be eligible for medical probation or compassionate release:A prisoner must be physically or mentally incapacitated due to a medical condition that requires 24-hour care or have a life expectancy of not more than six months;A placement option must be secured for the prisoner that does not pose a threat to the safety of the public or the prisoner; andThe county sheriff must determine if the expenses related to the inmate’s placement will be paid by Medicaid, private insurance or another form of payment before the prisoner is released.Oakland County Sheriff Michael J. Bouchard was among several strong supporters on the new law, stating “this is a perfect example of smart criminal justice reform, which gives county jails the ability to release those who need extensive medical care and who do not pose a threat to the community.” Also supporting it were the Michigan Sheriffs’ Association, Citizens Alliance on Prisons and Public Spending, and Michigan Council on Crime and Dependency.“This law will accomplish the right thing for everyone – ensuring proper care, limiting costs and keeping the public safe,” said Howrylak, a member of the House Law and Justice Committee.House Bill 5234 is now Public Act 149 of 2018.#####last_img read more
