While America’s major sports leagues have all relaxed their age requirements to enter their respective drafts, the NFL has been the most reluctant to reduce it.

Rangers Reaction: Rookies, relievers and a future Hall of Famer help stop skid

If you’re going to snap a five-game losing streak why not do it with some flash. Some rookie flash, to boot. The Rangers stopped the skid with a 6-5 extra-inning win against the Astros Saturday afternoon and checked off a slew of boxes in the process. First and foremost, Texas won for the first time

Is there any driver in NASCAR worth watching these days?

What driver is worth watching these days? That’s a question a friend of mine asked a week ago with Texas Motor Speedway days away from its opening race weekend. I didn’t have an answer. NASCAR doesn’t have a “must-see” driver. Dale Earnhardt Jr. is gone. So is Danica Patrick. Tony Stewart

Anticipation has been building over the early months of this year about a young athlete from Oklahoma who is a rising star in his sport, scaling the walls of expectation at a young age with freakish ability. If you assumed the subject was Oklahoma Soon…
