FB : SU commit Broyld charged with public lewdness

first_imgAshton Broyld, a Syracuse commit in its incoming class, appeared in court Wednesday on a charge of public lewdness for his actions following a high school basketball game on March 9. He pleaded not guilty to the misdemeanor charge, said Monroe County assistant public defender J.B. Afoh-Manin, who is representing Broyld.‘Our goal is to resolve this case in as fair and expedient way as possible,’ Afoh-Manin said in a phone interview Wednesday evening.According to an article on Wednesday from the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle’s website, Broyld’s charge stems from his actions after Rush-Henrietta’s men’s basketball team lost a playoff game to Irondequoit on March 9.‘The complaint states that Broyld dropped his pants, exposed himself and made lewd gestures and remarks after the game,’ according to the article.Last Saturday, Syracuse held a practice and scrimmage in Rochester, N.Y., at Sahlen’s Stadium. After practice, SU head coach Doug Marrone addressed Broyld’s status. Sue Edson, SU assistant director of athletics for communications, said Wednesday that Marrone’s stance on Broyld has not changed since Saturday.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘I’ve talked to Ashton,’ Marrone said after Saturday’s practice. ‘I’ve talked to the family, people at the school. We are well aware of the situation. It is a private matter. We expect Ashton, as well as the rest of our signees, who have work ahead of them to do. But we expect all of them to be a part of Syracuse University in the summer.’Broyld won the New York State Class AA player of the year award in football after helping Rush-Henrietta to a state championship in the Carrier Dome. The quarterback was rated a three-star recruit by Scout.com.Afoh-Manin said he has been in contact with officials at Syracuse, including Kevin Van Derzee, SU director of football operations.‘They just want to be kept abreast of the process of the case,’ Afoh-Manin said about SU. ‘I’ve heard positive feedback from the Syracuse University football program.’According to an article in The Daily Orange published March 29, Broyld apologized for his own actions two weeks ago through a personal statement.Rush-Henrietta released its own statement after the incident, describing the behavior of an unnamed student as ‘completely unacceptable,’ according to the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle article.Afoh-Manin said the 19-year-old Broyld has no criminal history, and this is the first criminal charge in his life. He said the next step for Broyld will be a pretrial conference, which will take place April 27.‘We expect this case to be resolved in fair fashion,’ Afoh-Manin said. ‘We’re not looking to seek any personal treatment. We’re just looking for fair treatment for my client.’mcooperj@syr.edu Comments Facebook Twitter Google+center_img Published on March 30, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Mark: mcooperj@syr.edu | @mark_cooperjrlast_img read more

UCL Round of 16: Borussia Dortmund v Tottenham preview

first_imgBorussia Dortmund need to do something they have never done before and overturn a three-goal deficit.Dortmund may never have overturned a three-goal deficit, but they came mighty close against Real Madrid in the quarter-finals five years ago.That second-leg showing in 2013/14 can serve as inspiration for the hosts – who are in bullish pre-match mood – but Tottenham, buoyed by recent good results against BVB and with the prize of only a second UEFA Champions League quarter-final in their history within reach, should have enough nous to stave off a fightback.Possible line-upsDortmund: Bürki; Wolf, Akanji, Zagadou, Diallo; Delaney, Witsel; Sancho, Reus Guerreiro; GötzeOut: Piszczek (foot)Doubtful: Pulišić (muscle)Misses next match if booked: WeiglTottenham: Lloris; Alderweireld, Sánchez, Vertonghen; Aurier, Sissoko, Wanyama, Rose; Eriksen, Son, KaneOut: Alli (hamstring), Trippier (fitness)Doubtful: Dier (illness), Winks (hip)Misses next match if booked: Alderweireld, Lamela, SonKey battleAkanji v Kane: Dortmund sorely missed the injured Manuel Akanji’s athleticism and anticipation in the Wembley first leg.To stand any chance of progression to the quarter-finals, BVB cannot afford to concede an away goal; for that to be the case, the fit-again Swiss defender must shackle Harry Kane, who has scored three goals in as many appearances against Dortmund.Form guideDortmundLast game: Augsburg 2-1 Dortmund (01/03)Form: LWDLDDDWWWTottenhamLast game: Tottenham 1-1 Arsenal (02/03)Form: DLLWWWWLLWLucien Favre, Dortmund coach“We can’t talk about [beating Atlético 4-0 earlier this season]. Every game is different. The first leg is done and this is a different situation. We know we can score goals, but we have to play very cleverly. Of course, the most important thing is to produce a top performance. Anything is possible. We know it’s tough, but you never know.”Mauricio Pochettino, Spurs manager“It’s a great opportunity to play and go through to the next round in an important competition like the Champions League. It’s going to be a tough game. We need to forget the first leg. It’s important to start at a very good level – be aggressive, fight from the beginning, high tempo, that’s key.” –Source: UEFA –Source: UEFAlast_img read more
