FLORHAM PARK, N. Wholesale Jerseys .J. -- Kyle Schwarbers big-time World Series impact for the Chicago Cubs is no surprise to New York Jets wide receiver Jalin Marshall.The two were football teammates at Middletown High School in Middletown, Ohio, with Schwarber a hard-hitting linebacker while also serving as a power-hitting slugger for the baseball team.He was a bad man, a smiling Marshall said in the Jets locker room Thursday. He used to always do the craziest stuff. He was one of those guys that, no matter what happened, he was going to do what he could to make the team win. It seems like thats what hes doing now and its working out for him.He can say that again.Schwarber tore the anterior cruciate and lateral collateral ligaments in his left knee in April while playing the outfield for the Cubs. He was thought to be sidelined for the year but returned in time to play in the World Series. He doubled in Game 1 against the Cleveland Indians as a designated hitter, becoming the first major league position player to get his first hit of the season during the World Series. Schwarber drove in two runs in Game 2, but he was denied medical clearance Thursday to play the outfield.Since theres no DH in National League ballparks, Schwarber will be limited to pinch-hitting duties during Games 3-5 in Chicago.A reporter for the Dayton Daily News tweeted a photo Thursday of Schwarber and Marshall from their high school playing days, posing with their backs against each other.It feels like it was just yesterday, Marshall said. I can still hear him hitting the ball all the way from the football complex. Hes always been like this. Our last football game playing together was against Braxton Miller and we didnt win, but we were pretty good that year.Miller, now a wide receiver for the Houston Texans, was the quarterback of the Huber Heights Wayne team that beat Schwarber, Marshall and the previously undefeated Middies, 21-0 on Nov. 6, 2010.Schwarber went on to play baseball at Indiana University and was the fourth overall pick in the 2014 draft. Marshall was signed by the Jets as an undrafted free agent out of Ohio State this spring and serves as New Yorks primary kick returner.Kyle was a big mentor to me growing up, Marshall said. We stay in touch and have a pretty good relationship. We have some close mutual and family friends. I always wish the best for him and I hope he keeps doing well.---AP NFL website: and Jerseys NFL . Detroit and Boston are deadlocked, 1-1, and Tigers manager Jim Leyland could be forgiven if he was caught rationalizing instead of dissecting how his club could blow a 5-1 lead late in Game 2. Cheap NFL Jerseys . -- Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Alrdridge were again the go-to duo for the Trail Blazers against the Kings. . The Dutchmans tenure got off to a poor start when referee Guido Winkmann awarded a penalty within two minutes for Niklas Starks clumsy challenge on Alexandru Maxim.Who provided the best players, goals and moments from the 2015/16 Premier League season? The Soccer Saturday panel - Matt Le Tissier, Paul Merson, Phil Thompson and Charlie Nicholas - have followed the campaign each week, so we asked them to dish out some season awards.Heres who the panel rate as the biggest stars of the season and their most sensational moments both on the pitch and in the studio... PLAYER OF THE SEASON Riyad Mahrez won the PFA Player of the Year award Charlie votes: Im going with Riyad Mahrez because of his priceless ability to win games with moments of sheer brilliance.Jamie Vardys goals have obviously been important but when you consider all but four of Mahrezs 17 goals have come away from home hes really delivered when his team need him.Thommo votes: Im going for Jamie Vardy. Im glad he won the Football Writers Award because both he and Mahrez deserve recognition for their contributions to the most remarkable of achievements.Le Tiss votes: Ive actually gone for a man who didnt even make the PFA shortlist in Toby Alderweireld. He was the most important factor in turning Tottenham from a side which have always struggled defensively in the past to having the best in the league until their final-day collapse.Merse votes: Its got to be Riyad Mahrez. There are a few other contenders but Mahrez made things happen for Leicester this season at crucial times.YOUNG PLAYER OF THE SEASON Dele Alli reached double figures in both goals and assists Charlie votes: It obviously pains me to say it, but Ive got to pick Dele Alli. To make the impact he has at such a young age, coming up from League 1, is remarkable. Spurs results since hes been banned, which have pained me less, show just how important he is to them.Thommo votes: It has to be Dele Alli for me. Harry Kane could come into it but Alli is the newcomer and he deserves recognition for making the step up.Le Tiss votes: Im going for Harry Kane. Alli runs him pretty close but Kanes goals have made Tottenham into title contenders, for much of the season anyway.Merse votes: Its Dele Alli for me. He has been outstanding, he has looked like a top player in his first season in the Premier League. He came up from League 1, which is difficult, but he settled quicker than snow. MANAGER OF THE SEASON Claudio Ranieri is crowned as the pundits manager of the season Charlie votes: It cant be anyone other than Claudio Ranieri. The Godfather, the Tinkerman, the Thinkerman! Charlies tip Find Charlies 110/1 Europa League final tip here. Thommo votes: No brainer, Claudio Ranieri. Hes motivated the team to the very end and taken the pressure off the players with the way hes handled press conferences. Le Tiss votes: It cant be anyone other than Claudio Ranieri. Yes, there have been a few that have done very well but nothing compares to what hes done. Honourable mentions go to Mauricio Pochettino, Slaven Bilic and Ronald Koeman and maybe even Quique Sanchez Flores.Merse votes: Nobody else but Claudio Ranieri in the Premier League. Otherwise Id go with Accrington Stanley manager John Coleman. With the wage bill they have got, to just miss out on automatic promotion is a phenomenal achievement. Its not Premier League but what he has done on a tiny budget is near on a miracle.SIGNING OF THE SEASON Dimitri Payet has scored nine goals in his debut Premier League season Charlie votes: Id say Dimitri Payet has to get that. There have been a few other really good ones, including NGolo Kante. Obviously, Im more attack minded and theres something sensational about a player that can do what he does. Hes made West Ham believe again.Thommo votes: Its Dimitri Payet without a doubt. Hes transformed West Ham. NGolo Kante would be in there but I think Payet has just been incredible. The modern version of Paolo Di Canio but without the histrionics.Le Tiss votes: NGolo Kante gets it from me. A very shrewd bit of work and Leicester have obviously got some excellent scouting in place given most of us hadnt heard of him.Merse votes: For me, Dimitri Payet and NGolo Kante can share it. West Ham took a chance on Payet, who was 29. I like what David Sullivan said the other day; they have to buy people for now and they cant buy a load of kids and have two or three seasons. Kante has had a brilliant season at Leicester, one of their best players.GOAL OF THE SEASON Dele Alli produced a sublime piece of skill against Crystal Palace and Phil Thompson says it will be goal of the season Charlie votes: There has been a lot of good ones. I loved Jamie Vardys against Liverpool but Ill go with Dele Alli against Crystal Palace, even though it pains me. It was like one of those Dennis Bergkamp moments where you think very few people can do that.Thommo votes: I am also voting for Dele Alli. What people have got to remember is the build-up, going from one side of the pitch to the other, a bit of head tennis and then the technique! Its the sort of thing youd expect to try on the training ground, and I mean try. It was a team goal as well as as a great bit of skill. Watch the Soccer Saturday panels reaction to Dele Allis wondergoal in Tottenhams 2-1 win over Crystal Palace Le Tiss votes: Im going to be accused of bias here but Im going for Cuco Martinas strike for Southampton against Arsenal. Cheap Jerseys Authentic. From 30 yards out he curled it into the bottom corner first time with the outside of the boot. Hell never hit one like that again in his life.Merse votes: Ill pick Dimitri Payets free-kick against Crystal Palace. It looked like it was going to hit my car and then it dips into the top corner.MOMENT OF THE SEASON Wes Morgan secures a point for Leicester at Old Trafford Charlie votes: Wes Morgans goal at Manchester United, where we all really thought they were going to do it. I thought that was it, coming from behind at Old Trafford with the captain showing the character of that side. I took longer than most to be convinced that they would win the title but that was the moment I realised it was really happening.Thommo votes: Well, my favourite moment has to be Liverpools comeback from 2-0 and then 3-1 down against Dortmund. I just thought it was sensational, against such a great side, the greatest ever game played at Anfield! In the Premier League, it would be Robert Huths winner against Tottenham. If anything showed that Leicester could win the title, it was that.Le Tiss votes: The Southampton comeback from 2-0 down against Liverpool. Its a very sore point as I was watching Kung-Fu Panda III at the cinema as Id promised to take my daughter and then the game was rearranged. The film wasnt great, but it was certainly made better by the Sky Sports Score Centre. Merse votes: This is a tricky one but Im going for Jamie Vardys goal against Liverpool. I have seen those kind of goals before but it was a really big goal scored against Liverpool and it sticks in your head from the season.Soccer Saturday highlight We take a look back at the best moments from Soccer Saturday this season Charlie votes: Ive not had many because Im always moaning about Arsenal. Jeff never really wound me up about Spurs like he usually did and he kind of eased off on me, which almost made it worse.Reflecting on it, Id probably say the way Jeff ridiculed me and Merse for refusing to admit Leicester were going to win the league and predicting the slip-ups which never happened. He just let us dig ourselves into bigger and bigger holes and reminded us on air the next week.Thommo votes: It has to be Merse talking about players getting their hair done when theyre live on TV. They always look like theyve got their hair done to me so Im not really sure what his point was. The the next day, Jack Wilshere came back from injury for Arsenal and looked like hed just came straight out of the hairdressers. Paul Merson went on a brilliant rant about why he believes Swansea are in with a chance against Leicester on Sunday Le Tiss votes: I think this would have to go down as Merses rant about Swansea players getting their hair done ahead of their televised game with Leicester. I completely disagreed because he thought Swansea were actually going to get a result, so he got a bit a of stick on the texts when Swansea conceded their fourth. Merse votes: We were filming this documentary on these two teams in a small island who play each other 38 times a season or something because theres nobody else to play. They actually do a cup draw to decide who plays at home even though they share the same pitch!Anyway, theres quite a few people there, but it turns out theyre not interested in the game, theyre all bird watchers. Then this rare bird flies past and they all go berserk for it and then, just as it goes out of shot, the camera pans back to Jeff and he says and the cat got the bird. We were all in stitches because Jeff usually finds the right words in such moments but it really wasnt.  Pundits Sky Bet tips Find out what the pundits are tipping up for the Europa League final here.
