After a college career that included playing for both the University of Auburn and Southern Illinois University, Jacobs was chosen in the fourth round of the 2005 NFL Draft by the New York Giants. In Jacobs rookie season he rushed for over 400 yards and nine touchdowns and followed that season up by capturing the starting running back position after Tiki Barber retired. In that 2007 season the Giants went on to win the Super Bowl behind Jacobs bruising running style and their great defensive line. After six more seasons that included another Super Bowl run with the Giants and a brief stint with the San Francisco 49ers, Jacobs decided to retire after resigning with the Giants for one more season. Since his retirement Jacobs has been present on ABC’s Shark Tank and currently resides in Wayne, New Jersey.

Watch Jim Harbaugh Talk About This Years New Recruits:
When Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto called Jamie Moyer to invite him to camp the oldest pitcher to win a game in major-league history replied, “Is that as a player, or in another capacity?” After a weeklong stint in Peoria Moyer’s engagement and enthusiasm suggests that he loved it. Not being used to calling the dugout home, Moyer’s did a remarkable job assessing the players work, giving mechanical suggestions, and providing insight into the mental challenged of baseball on both the major- and minor-league side of the complex. Moyer was said to be a natural on the coaching end, and seemed more than open to pursuing that line of work. Moyer says he’d be willing to work around his schedule to go on some special assignments during the season upon request.
The Pennsylvania native is a former professional baseball pitcher with over 25-years in Major League Baseball experience currently lives in Florida with his wife and eight children. When he’s not focusing on family or sports he’s working with his non-profit organization dedicated to helping children in severe distress through the Moyer Foundation.
At the time of his last game, Moyer was the oldest player in the major leagues and had the most wins, losses, and strikeouts of any active MLB pitcher. He’s pitched for the Chicago Cubs, Texas Rangers, St. Louis Cardinals, Baltimore Orioles, Boston Red Sox, Seattle Mariners, Philadelphia Phillies, and Colorado Rockies. He was inducted into the Mariners Hall of Fame last year in 2015. Moyer played for 25 seasons, from 1986 to 2012, winning 269 games — the final one for the Rockies at age 49 — and this may just be his time to explore the other side of the field. Moyer announced the end of his baseball-playing career during an interview with Dave Davies on National Public Radio’s Fresh Air broadcast that aired October 2, 2013. During the interview on Fresh Air he also announced his intention to start a pitching academy, The Moyer Pitching Academy, as well as continue his charitable work with The Moyer Foundation, but that he would be open to an offer to coach in the major leagues.
Moyer has the instant street cred that comes with a career that brought him two 20-win seasons, an All-Star appearance and a World Series title. “Whether it’s pickoff moves, how you hold your glove in the stretch or how you attack hitters, he’s got like 25 years in the big leagues, which is unbelievable,’’ Mariners pitcher Mike Montgomery said. “ It’s pretty cool listening to him talk, and having him give me advice on different little things is pretty awesome.” One tip Moyer gave Montgomery to help his changeup was to hold two balls in his hand, then take one away and see how the ball feels smaller. “It’s little things like that I would have never thought about,’’ he said. This only confirms previous thoughts by many that Moyer is a natural on the coaching end, and seems open to pursuing that line of work.

This upcoming June, Christian Laettner will be holding a basketball camp at Walker-Hackensack-Akeley School District and will focus on fundamentals such as ball handling, movement without the ball, and team concepts. The camp will host ages ranging from eight year olds to eighteen year olds and the attendees will receive a t-shirt on the first day.
Christian Laettner is an Angola, New York native who developed his competitive drive from his brother’s bullying as a kid and played his high school basketball at private Nichols School. Laettner had to work as a janitor to supplement the cost of the private school that he led to two state titles. Laettner was a very sought after recruit and decided to play his college ball at Duke University. During his time at Duke, Laettner won an amazing 21 games in the NCAA tournament that included back to back national titles during his junior and senior season. His college career is regarded as one of if the not the best college basketball careers in history as he averaged nearly 17 points, 8 rebounds, and nearly 50 percent on three point shooting while also providing many clutch shots during his career. Laettner also holds multiple NCAA tournament records such as most points, free throws made and attempted, games won, and games played. Laettner was also the only non NBA player named to the highly touted 1992 Olympic Dream Team featuring Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, and Larry Bird. Laettner was drafted third overall by the Minnesota Timberwolves in the 1992 NBA Draft and played 13 years in the National Basketball Association including stints with six teams, was traded six times, and was never with a team for longer than three years. Laettner has since begun operating many youth training camps and also served as a coach in the NBA’s developmental league.
This upcoming June, Christian Laettner will hold a basketball camp at Walker-Hackensack-Ackley School District. The camp should have a great turnout as Laettner’s camps generally do. The camp will teach attendees the fundamentals of the game and they will learn from one of if not the greatest college basketball players of all time.

This past week, Olympic gold medalist, Shawn Johnson made a surprise appearance at the Athletic Arts Academy in Orange. The appearance gave the young athletes a chance to meet and get advice from a proven winner and champion who was once in their shoes just trying to accomplish their dreams.
Shawn Johnson is a Des Moines, Iowa native who began participating in gymnastics when she was enrolled in a class at the age of three after her parents noticed her climbing cabinets and jumping off tables. At the age of 12, Johnson participated in the Junior Olympics National Championships and placed fourth in the all-around after finishing first on the beam and second on the floor routine. She was not originally being scouted by the United States National team until Johnson’s coach, Liang Chow, sent the team a video and stated that “I believe this kid will help the U.S. Team.” In 2006, Johnson, as a junior elite, won the U.S. Junior National All-Around Championship with a score higher than any of senior elite competitors. When Johnson began her senior career in 2007 she began to rack up gold medals starting at the World Championships where she won the gold in the all-around and floor competitions alone, all while helping the U.S. team win the team gold. The following year the U.S. team and Johnson headed to the Olympics in Beijing where the team won the silver medal. Along with the silver in the team competition Johnson won the silver in the individual all-around finishing behind her teammate Nastia Liukin and another silver in the floor exercise competition. It wasn’t all silver medals for Johnson however when she broke through and won the gold medal in the balance beam finishing just ahead of her teammate Liukin as well. In 2009 Johnson took her talents to a new competition when she competed on the eighth season of Dancing with the Stars and ultimately won the competition with professional dancer, Mark Ballas. In 2012, Johnson returned to Dancing with the Stars for the all-star season and at the end of the season finished second.
This past week, Olympic gold medalist and Dancing with the Star’s champion Shawn Johnson made a surprise visit to the Athletic Academy in Orange. The appearance was a great opportunity for the young athletes to get advice from someone who made their dream a reality due in large fact to hard work and dedication. Johnson has said that part of her duty as an Olympian is to give back to the community and kids that want to accomplish the same and bigger dreams than she had.

Retired mixed martial arts pioneer, former undefeated UFC champion and all-around stand up guy Frank “The Legend” Shamrock recently visited Tucson Medical Center’s children’s center as part of a trip through Southern Arizona. Shamrocks says “This year, I’ve decided to get more involved in charitable nonprofit work. I’ve been taking opportunities to go into communities and see what’s going on and try to give back a little bit. I’ve been in my own community just focusing on my daughter and I haven’t really been out and about much, but I would like to spend this whole year doing charity and nonprofit work.”
He was successful in his goal as he brightened the day of several patients (and parents) at the hospital with his genuine kind heartedness, words of encouragement and contagious smile. Whether through simple conversation or signing a few autographs for an excited young wrestler, Shamrock brought laughter, smiles and encouragement to TMC.The patients and their families aren’t the only ones who love the hospital visits; members of the TMC staff were thrilled to have Shamrock visit.
Shamrock was the first man to ever hold the UFC’s middleweight championship belt; a division later renamed the light heavyweight division. During his stay as champ, Shamrock successfully defended his belt four times and was ranked the number one pound-for-pound fighter in the world during his reign. He held the belt through four defenses, from Dec. 21, 1997, until retiring from the UFC on Nov. 24, 1999. Shamrock returned to the sport later on to win multiple championships outside of the UFC, though he officially retired again in 2010.Since stepping away from the octagon, Shamrock has become a philanthropist, motivational speaker, social activist and author, along with several other impressive accomplishments. With his unwavering drive for success, Shamrock is a key model for anyone feeling down and out in a hospital bed.
When not working across the country to brighten days and teach technique, Shamrock said he is dedicating his time to rebuilding the Shamrock Ranch boys home, where both he and his adoptive brother and fellow MMA legend Ken were adopted as boys.

Victor Oladipo made an appearance this past December at the Orlando Magic Holiday Basketball Camp that included 12 hours of expert instruction from the National Basketball Academy. Along with running some drills and skills portion of the camp, Oladipo’s greatest gift he gave was giving life lessons to the kids in attendance. Oladipo was the perfect person to discuss how to reach your dreams on and off the court for the nearly 50 kids attending.
The Silver Spring, Maryland native wasn’t as highly touted out of high school as some would think the number two overall pick and NBA up and comer would be. As Oladipo would say, hard work, dedication, and belief in himself made him into that. Out of high school Oladipo was ranked the 144th best prospect in his graduating class but after attending Indiana University with Coach Tom Creen, Oladipo learned that his biggest asset may be defense. He built quite the resume while at Indiana that included Sporting News College Basketball Player of the Year, the National Co-Defensive Player of the Year, and was a first team All-American. Subsequently, Oladipo was selected with the 2nd pick by the Orlando Magic in the 2013 NBA Draft and hasn’t looked back. In only his 3rd NBA season Oladipo has been seen as an up and coming NBA star that many believe can and will be a part of a championship team in the future.
Victor Oladipo made an appearance at the Orlando Magic Holiday Basketball Camp that had nearly 50 kids in attendance and included 12 hours of instruction from players and coaches. It was a great chance for kids to not only get expert help in the game of basketball but also life from one of the budding stars the NBA has to offer.

“I’ve spoken at a lot of camps, been to a lot of camps,” said Legler. “And I believe I have the best staff. It’s not who they are or where they coach, but how much enthusiasm they put into it. We make it as competitive as we can and our guys understand it’s a big deal.”
