DeJoe adds extra dimension to Syracuse’s man-up unit as sharpshooter

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ In a low-scoring affair, Syracuse needed to make the most of its extra-man opportunities. The Orange cycled the ball around the outside in the third quarter, looking to expand on its three-goal cushion on the man-up.The ball found its way into the pocket of Derek DeJoe’s stick. Without any wavering in confidence, the freshman fired from 15 yards out, beating Sam Somers for SU’s sixth and final goal of the day, further dimming any Army comeback hopes.“I think I’m pretty good at shooting. The main thing is just everyone believes in me, and everyone’s confident in my shot,” DeJoe said, “so it’s pretty easy for me myself to just catch it and shoot it.”DeJoe has helped add a new dimension to Syracuse’s man-up unit. The Orange (1-1) has scored on three of its five extra-man opportunities this season, with the latest coming on the 15-yard rip from the freshman. DeJoe’s shot has been clocked as fast as 103 mph, he said, and is already one of the best on the team.He uses that ability to stretch the defense and make the opposition susceptible to interior scoring from Derek Maltz and the rest of the attack.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I’m pretty pleased with the man-up so far,” Maltz said. “I think we’re executing well, we’re getting good shots off and overall, we’ve done a pretty good job early in the season.”DeJoe arrived at SU as the second ranked field player in SU’s Class of 2012 — goaltender Tyler Avallone was its top player overall. The scouting report on him said he would thrive as a shooter. It was his admitted best attribute on the field and main skill he planned to work on at Syracuse. He rode that shooting ability to 93 career goals at Fairport (N.Y.) High School and the No. 71 overall prospect ranking by Inside Lacrosse.The Orange’s three man-up goals this year have come in three different ways. In the opener against Albany, attack Kevin Rice found a cutting Matt Walters for a seven-yard strike. The first against the Black Knights came in close, courtesy of Maltz.Then came DeJoe’s. It was SU’s first long-range goal on the extra-man, but it’s the threat DeJoe provides that leads to so much else.“He helps stretch the defense,” head coach John Desko said. “He can score a little farther out than most midfielders and most freshmen at this stage of the game, so it’s a matter of trying to get him out there where he can get the opportunities to take that big shot.”That constant threat makes it impossible for Desko to take him off the extra-man, despite his freshman status. The extra-man unit is young this season, but successful.Desko let the young guys run in the scrimmages, and when they played well, it meant some real action once the season came around. With a 60-percent success rate, albeit early in the season, the underclassmen have made it tough for the head coach to pull them off. His only concern lies in the group’s defensive ability if the inexperienced unit turns the ball over.As he remains on the field, the goals will continue to come. Maltz called him, “one of the best shooters on the team,” and expects the long-distance goal against Army will be the first of many for the freshman.DeJoe feeds off of that confidence. It’s the reason it doesn’t waver when he shoots. He doesn’t know the farthest he’s ever made a shot from. But whatever it was, he and his teammates knew that, like always, it had a chance to find the back of the net.“Everyone’s pretty comforting, they’re all real confident in me,” DeJoe said. “Maltz down low, and they always love when I shoot, so it’s pretty easy for me to just get it and rip it.“You almost just close your eyes sometimes.” Comments Published on February 27, 2013 at 12:01 am Contact David: [email protected] | @DBWilson2center_img Related Stories SELF DEFENSE: Syracuse shuts down Army, Thul in 1st win of seasonlast_img read more

‘Pastors, Others, Will Not Beg for Bread’

first_imgThe newly inducted General Overseer (Bishop) of the United Methodist Church in Liberia, Samuel J. Quire, last weekend raised his audience to their feet in applause when he vowed that “dedicated servants of the Church will not beg for bread in their service to God and His people.”“Under my administration as head Bishop of the United Methodist Church in Liberia, I will work with all who are involved in the affairs of the church to increase productivity in agriculture, establish businesses in order to pay pastors, bishops and others well,” Bishop Quire said.He made the remark on Saturday December 31when he was inducted into office for a period of 5 years beginning 2017 to 2022.Bishop Quire who prostrated himself on the floor of the Tubman Memorial United Methodist Church in Paynesville, promised to serve the church with humility and use Jesus Christ as his torchbearer. The new bishop quoted Jesus from Matthew 16:17 and18 saying, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my father in heaven. And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.”He said the Church’s resources will be increased and its branches in rural parts of the country will be strengthened, noting further that tithes and offerings alone are not sufficient to deal with the pressing economic challenges of the church’s membership.“The Gospel needs to be contextualized in a more relevant way than the usual superficial way,” he pointed out, signifying that members of the Church should acquire basic education, skills and seek avenues to explore opportunities for their survival.Bishop Quire said his quest to have a paradigm shift in dealing with the church’s leadership and the rest of its congregation from an economic perspective is to curtail the rampant corrupt practices that have invaded the church and the public sector.The Bishop emphasized that unity will be the hallmark of his leadership. “We are not a divided Church but a United Methodist Church, whose mission is to bind hearts and hands together for the common good.”Bishop Quire, who was elected at the 26th West Africa Annual Conference (WAAC) in Abidjan, Ivory Coast on December 17 is the 5th indigenous Liberian to be voted into office since 1964.He commended all past bishops for their dedicated services to the church and assured them of his preparedness to consult with them as he moves on with his job.Turning over the gavel of authority to Bishop Quire, Interim Bishop Arthur F. Kullah called on his successor to always be prepared to face the challenges at hand. Speaking on the theme, “Prepare to Serve,” Bishop Kullah said other nations that are progressing materially today are doing so because they value proper planning and preparation and renounce hate towards each.“Remember Sam, that promotion in the UMC is based on merit and not personality or contacts. Therefore, be fair in whatever you do as you run the office of Bishop for our church. Don’t be carried away by friendship or family connections,” Bishop Kullah admonished.A bishop has no enemy and as such Bishop Quire should not listen to gossip, advised Kullah. “Serve the church with credibility and leave a legacy worth commending,” he told Quire.On the other hand he called on all family members, friends and intimates of Bishop Quire not to overburden him with their personal problems. “When you take problems to an individual more than what he or she can possibly handle, you force him or her to steal just to satisfy you,” Bishop Kullah said.Senator Commany Wesseh, on behalf of the Government said the United Methodist Church in Liberia is noted for producing great leaders and it supports peace, unity and justice.Former House Speaker J. Alex Tyler and presidential aspirants Charles W. Brumskin and Dr. J. Mills Jones were among many personalities at the induction service.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
