Syracuse Recruit Dom Timbers’ Mom Tells Fizz She’s Worried About Her Son

post-gazette.com

SU recruit Dom Timbers is expected to join the Lackawanna College Falcons this spring to try and get his academic career back on track. Timbers left the City College of San Francisco in November, according to his mother, Cassandra Reese.

Reese is concerned for her son’s playing career, and tells The Fizz Timbers is “not doing much of anything right now,” following his return to Pennsylvania from San Francisco. She said she was contacting Syracuse University to see if her son still has a scholarship available to him, should he get his act together.

The Fizz was looking for Timbers back in January, when he curiously didn’t show up on the City College of San Francisco’s football roster.

A commenter named “Coach” left a link on The Fizz under that post stating Timbers would be joining the Lackawanna College Falcons, a juco team in Pennsylvania, per the team’s website. He would be playing football this season, according to the news release.

Falcons coach Mark Duda confirmed to The Fizz by phone that Timbers will be enrolled at Lackawanna this spring and will be eligible to compete in the fall. It’s assumed he would be joining the college for the summer session, which begins on May 23rd.

This makes things murky for Timbers. Does he have a scholarship to SU? Is Lackawanna the route to get there? If he is at home, not enrolled, will he simply arrive next month, as Duda suggested? The answer to one question has raised about 50 others regarding a player SU expected to have this past season.

Everyone knows the Orange could use another body at running back, especially after Antwon Bailey leaves. Timbers’ road has been beset by academic obstactles from the start. One has to wonder if the team would still consider taking on the dynamic tailback.

A story like this reminds you that for every Terrel Hunt that overcomes adversity, there is another recruit that ends up playing his way out of D-1. Right now, that would appear to be Timbers.

  1. I am curious to find out what blog platform you’re utilizing? I’m having some small security issues with my latest site and I’d like to find something more risk-free. Do you have any suggestions?

  2. I disagree with you about the financial crisis. You CAN let big banks fail, and capitalism will do magic on that problem. Every poorly run bank would have to declare bankruptcy and sell its assets for cents on the dollar. People that got in over their head would then get the needed principal reductions-. The entire “too big to fail” concept was made up by the big banks for protection-. For every big bank that fails, there will be hundreds of smaller banks, hedge funds, and other investors ready on a minutes notice to buy the assets at auction with no disruption to the financial system. Government spending would not be impacted one bit. You can let the banks fail without cutting government spending one bit.buy gw2 gold
