The Dutchman has signed a three-season contract extension with the Milton Keynes-based squad on January 7, 2020.Also Read | F1: Watch Young Charles Leclerc And Max Verstappen Battle In Kart RaceMax Verstappen endorsementsMax Verstappen’s endorsement deals also form a major part of his wealth.

Nevada’s Brandon Talton earns scholarship after kicking game-winning 56-yard FG vs. Purdue

first_imgHow’s this for a Week 1 headline: “Walk-on hits walk-off FG, walks away with scholarship.”That’s exactly what happened Friday to Nevada true freshman Brandon Talton after he nailed a 56-yard field goal as time expired to lift the Wolf Pack to an improbable 34-31 win over Big Ten foe Purdue. The story is improbable on multiple levels.First, the Wolf Pack were down 17 points at halftime and still trailed by 17, 31-14, midway through the third quarter.

And then they said, ‘Last one, kicker.’ (Coach is) like, ‘Here’s your game ball.’ And he said, ‘And now you’re on scholarship.’ And I just looked at him (Norvell) in awe. … It’s crazy. It still doesn’t feel real.””It still doesn’t feel real.”And here’s @btalton111’s reaction to getting his scholarship post game tonight.#BattleBorn x #LateNiteGifs pic.twitter.com/9iAhhM3gfA— 15th and Virginia (@15thAndVirginia) August 31, 2019center_img Three takeaways from No. 1 Clemson’s drubbing of Georgia Tech Then, when the Wolf Pack scored with 52 seconds to play to make it 31-30, an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for excessive celebrating pushed the PAT back an additional 15 yards. A chip-shot PAT became, basically, the distance of a pressure-packed field goal of more than 30 yards. Talton connected (obviously, or there would be no story … or, likely, a scholarship).On the second play after the ensuing kickoff, Daniel Brown intercepted Boilermakers QB Elijah Sindelar to set up Talton’s big moment.But that moment almost didn’t happen, either.With three seconds on the clock, the Wolf Pack lined up for the potential game-winning field goal, and … Talton missed. But Purdue coach Jeff Brohm had called timeout to ice Talton.It didn’t work.Talton didn’t miss his second attempt.last_img read more
