        Richard Sherman fulfills promise, funds scholarship for honor roll student

        When Richard Sherman issues you a challenge, he expects you to step up. And if you do, you’ll earn his respect, whether you’re Tom Brady or a high school senior. Hershai James, a student at Varina High School in Richmond, Virginia, met Sherman last year when the outspoken Seattle Seahawks cornerback came to town for a charity dinner. That night, Sherman challenged James: make the honor roll, and you’ll get a college scholarship. James capitalized on the opportunity. She achieved a 3.0 average, reaching the school’s honor roll.

        Beware, NFL: Rob Gronkowski reportedly looking good at OTAs

        If Rob Gronkowski looks as good as the reports suggest — and we’re not talking music videos or crashing Sean Spicer’s White House media briefing anymore — then the rest of the league might be in serious trouble. The New England Patriots might be better next season than the one that just won the Super Bowl. “He looks like Gronk,” Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels said, via The Boston Herald, of the tight end’s performance at OTAs. “We haven’t got into a big evaluation. He’s involved in everything.” Rob Gronkowski reportedly has looked very good at New England…
