Derek Dooley is a success as NFL aide

in
Davis, Buddy 2015.jpg

A serving of sports notes with your Sunday morning cup of coffee:
• Derek Dooley had a dubious career as a college head football coach, as his record plainly shows.
In a combined six years at the helm of the Louisiana Tech and Tennessee programs, he was 32-41.
With the Bulldogs, he was 17-20.
But Dooley just might have discovered his niche on the sidelines.
He is now in his third season as the wide receivers’ coach of the Dallas Cowboys and has done an overall commendable job, especially considering that he has to mentor (or, at least try) ever combustible Dez Bryant.

Hitting a baseball, shooting doves similar

091315 MOSSBERG SHOTGUN C.jpg

Who’s your favorite baseball team? If I’m being honest, I don’t keep up with baseball like I used to when I followed the Atlanta Braves because they sported some of my favorite athletes like Chipper Jones, Javy Lopez, Fred McGriff and pitchers — Greg Maddox, John Smoltz, and Tom Glavine.
One of the players I kept up with especially was third baseman Chipper Jones. If ever there was an all American athlete and all-around good fellow, Chipper was the guy. It didn’t hurt that he is also a serious deer hunter.
