Rodriguez Named to All-Big 12 Preseason Team
We told you yesterday about Cowgirl soccers’ Kim Rodriguez scoring her first senior national team goal for Mexico a couple days ago and her quality has obviously stood out to those in the Big 12 as well.
Yesterday afternoon Rodriguez was named to the preseason All-Big 12 squad as a defender. Since her arrival a couple years ago, she has been one of the most skillful players in the conference and was a huge contributor for the Pokes last season.

She scored four goals and served up six assists, which was top-10 in the conference. The Big 12 rewarded her performances with a second team all-conference selection last season. She also led the team in minutes played a year ago.
Once she is finished representing Mexico at the Pan American games, she is set to rejoin the Cowgirls for the rest of preseason. Now just eight days until the season kicks off against Tulsa.
Pokes in the Pros – NFL Preseason
Tonight is the first round of games in the preseason, save for the Hall of Fame game, which was played a week ago. The Dolphins kick it off tonight against the Falcons and the reports have been mixed out of Miami on Vincent Taylor, who is trying to adjust to a new defense.
His defensive line coach Marion Hobby called Taylor a gamer.
“The biggest thing with Vince is just continue to work, continue to work, but he’s done some really good stuff,” Hobby said. “I like his natural strength. He’s better when you say, ‘Live,’ than he is just in a drill. You say, ‘Live,’ and Vincent Taylor shows up.”
That from the South Florida Sun-Sentinal’s Omar Kelly.

The Lions also play tonight, they’ll take on Super Bowl champs New England and Chris Lacy will play against the team, who gave him his first shot in the league.
This week has featured some positive news for Lacy, who has caught a couple balls for touchdowns from Matthew Stafford. Lacy has also done some work for Detroit as a gunner on punt coverage. If he proves to be valuable in that aspect, he will have a great shot to make the squad.
Finally big day for former Cowboy rookie Justice Hill for Baltimore.
According to several reports, Hill is tabbed to get an extended role in the first game tonight against Jacksonville because veteran Mark Ingram is not expected to play.
Washington also plays tonight, but JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reported Tuesday afternoon that Jordan Brailford aggravated his groin injury that had him on the physically unable to perform list to start camp. His status for tonight’s preseason contest is not known.
Here is the video from ABC Washington’s Chip Brierre:
