Denver rallies to down Bayhawks

ANNAPOLIS, MD - Midfielder Kyle Dixon scored four goals and piled up seven points, but it was not enough as the Chesapeake Bayhawks fell to the Denver Outlaws, 15-13, before a crowd of 10,420 last night at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. Dixon fired in a pair of 2-point goals, increasing his Major League Lacrosse single-season record in that category to 14.

Attackman Brendan Mundorf totaled five points on three goals and two assists while goalie Jesse Schwartzman made 15 saves as Denver rallied from an early five-goal deficit to capture the third regular season championship in franchise history. Rookie attackman Mark Matthews had three goals and an assist for the Outlaws (11-3), who set a franchise record for victories and earned top seed for MLL Championship weekend.

Thats a very talented offensive team and you have to cover them for 60 minutes, Chesapeake head coach Dave Cottle said. Im disappointed that we didnt keep playing at the level we did during the first quarter for the rest of the game.

Denver will face fourth-seeded Long Island (8-6) in the opening semifinal (1 p.m.) on Aug. 25th at Harvard Stadium in Boston. Chesapeake (10-4) receives the second seed and will take on No. 3 Boston (9-5) in the second semifinal (4 p.m.).

Thanks to John Wall, one class's final exam became a lot less stressful

Thanks to John Wall, one class's final exam became a lot less stressful

These days, it seems like there are two ways to handle an exam at school.

The first way can be considered the old-fashioned method: Looking over the materials from that semester or year in a method that scholars refer to as "studying."

The second way, meanwhile, is more of a recent, but still effective, trend: Lob a tweet at an athlete on Twitter and ask them to retweet it, and if they do, celebrate as you and your class cash in on an agreement made with your teacher beforehand.

One particularly bold class opted for the second route on Monday, and thanks to John Wall, the students in that class now have nothing to worry about when it comes to math.

MORE WIZARDS: TEAM HOPES TO EXTEND WALL'S CONTRACT THIS OFFSEASON

It started when a Twitter user named Luke took the following photo of his teacher with a sign that detailed a deal made between her and her pupils. All Wall had to do was see, and then acknowledge, that message, and everyone in that period would receive a 100 on the final test.

Fortunately for the kids, the Wizards' team account discovered Luke's request and also passed it along to Washington's point guard:

After that, well, all you need to do is check out Luke's reaction to figure out if Wall held up his end of the bargain:

Even in the offseason, the man can pick up an assist.

Fantasy football: Ranking the top eight rookie quarterbacks in 2017

Rookie camps are in the books as teams now move to organized team activities. Does that mean it's too early for fantasy football rankings? 

Probably, but seeing as the rookies are new to the scene, we might as well start projecting where and how they fit.

Ezekiel Elliott, Dak Prescott, Sterling Shepard and Michael Thomas were among the rookies who produced and then some in 2016.

Based on the early rounds of the 2017 NFL draft, thereโ€™s hope for even more first-year standouts.  

Starting with the Bears selecting quarterback Mitch Trubisky second overall, 19 skill players were drafted in the first and second round.

That includes fellow first-round quarterback selections Pat Mahomes and Deshaun Watson. Several sleeper candidates followed. 

Hereโ€™s my look at the Elite Eight quarterbacks with the 2017 fantasy football season -- and beyond -- in mind.
