No. 13: Usage of Brisly Estime and Ashton Broyld

first_imgWith Syracuse football training camp just a month away, The Daily Orange beat writers, Sam Blum, Jesse Dougherty, Matt Schneidman and Paul Schwedelson will reveal the top 15 preseason storylines with a new one every other day. Make sure to check dailyorange.com and click here to see all the posts as we count down to camp.Syracuse is getting younger in the passing game, but there should still be room in Tim Lester’s offense for Brisly Estime and Ashton Broyld.Estime and Broyld have both shuffled through different positions as SU has shuffled through three different offensive identities in the last three seasons. Going into this year, Broyld is playing SU’s new hybrid position with Ervin Philips, Ben Lewis and freshman Tyrone Perkins. Estime is playing wide receiver after being labeled an H-back, more or less a slot receiver, the past two years.Both players are past the point of untapped potential — Estime a junior and Broyld a senior — that was flashed in previous seasons but ultimately held down by injuries and trouble fitting into different systems.Last year, Estime was supposed to be a perfect fit in George McDonald’s no-huddle offense, but both Estime and the offense suffered similar fates. Estime battled a recurring ankle injury all season and finished with 10 receptions for 140 yards and a touchdown.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBroyld, who joined the Orange as a four-star recruit in 2012, played in just four games last year due to a lower-right leg injury. He was tabbed as one of Terrel Hunt’s top targets heading into last season, but watched from the bench as rising sophomore Steve Ishmael grew into a No. 1 receiver catching passes from A.J. Long.Now Syracuse’s two veteran-most options in the passing game will get another shot to gel in an offense — Estime looking to use his blazing speed and Broyld his mismatch-creating size. The Orange averaged 5.8 yards per pass attempt last season, good for second worst in the Atlantic Coast Conference.Estime and Broyld do have the ability to boost that number and their team’s passing game, but turning ability into results has proven no small task for either player.

Harris, who represents leading affiliate bettingexpert, climbed a place to 9th at Doncaster last week after a 15/2 victory on Rocky’s Treasure.____________________________________2:10bettingexpert: Cornish WarriorCould improve a chunk for joining the excellent Mulholland stable.Timeform: Fountains WindfallHas twice shaped well in competitive-looking handicaps in recent weeks, and this may well represent a good opportunity for him to add to his tally, despite conceding weight all round.AppBet: Fountains WindfallDespite being under a penalty for strong form in his recent handicap run at Sandown the drop back to novice company should suit him here, and with his trainer enjoying a good spell, he looks the one to beat.____________________________________2:40bettingexpert: Sleep EasyHas shaped better than the bare result in both handicaps so far and can defy topweight.Timeform: Pure VisionGot his act together in handicaps to end 2016, and given his useful bumper ability, he can be expected to win more races in this sphere.AppBet: Pure VisionAfter winning at Lingfield back in December, he also put in a very strong performance to finish second at Uttoxeter last time out. Given weight by all the other horses in this race, he makes a strong case for an early double for A J Honeyball here.____________________________________3:10bettingexpert: BallinvarrigBounced back to his best at Leicester last time and has been found a weak race to follow up in.Timeform: BallinvarrigNot an obvious type to follow up but has been found an uncompetitive event and remains on a fair mark despite a 10lb rise.AppBet: BallinvarrigPlacing in both his previous starts over course and distance, the nine-year-old should have the class to win this four-horse race after winning by 14 lengths last time out at Leicester.____________________________________3:40bettingexpert: MurrayanaUseful hunter has an obvious chance on the ratings and will like this speed track.Timeform: Apple’s QueenA small field but easy to make a case for at least three, with Apple’s Queen fancied to build on his point wins for the Alners and come out on top on his hunter chase debut.AppBet: Apple’s QueenWinning his last two outings on point to point courses, it looks as though the six-year-old will have a very promising career and she looks set to do well here.____________________________________4:10bettingexpert: TangleyHeld in high regard by his excellent stable and can put two disappointments in bumpers behind her on hurdling debut.Timeform: TangleyRan out a 10-length winner on her sole start in points and it would come as no surprise were she to leave her bumper form (well supported both starts) behind now sent hurdling.AppBet: TangleyTrained by Harry Fry, more is expected from this mare who has failed to fire in her last two bumper races. The switch to hurdles could be what she needs, and coming from a good yard she does make a strong case here.____________________________________4:40bettingexpert: Lady LongshotCaught the eye last time and can improve to land this weak looking handicap.Timeform: Lady LongshotMade more of an impact on her handicap debut at Exeter and could be the one to beat.AppBet: Skylark LadyShe makes a strong case here following her runner-up effort at Fakenham earlier in the season, she handles the ground and distance well and could pick up a first win for her new stable here.____________________________________Where will Sarah Shannon enter on the Tipster Challenge leaderboard?

Region 3 focusing on developing regional tourism – Chamber of Commerce

first_imgThe Region Three (Essequibo Islands-West Demerara) Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCI) is seeking initiatives to establish tourism hotspots at key locations, to address the large influx of tourists that enter the region on a daily basis.President of the CCI, Halim KhanThis was related by the President of the CCI, Halim Khan, who told this publication on Monday of the list of projects which the committee is processing and will be proposing shortly. The flagship project is the modification of the Vreed-en-Hoop Stelling and advanced facilities for tourists with the inclusion of a souvenir and artisan centre, food courts, and two adjoining boardwalks which will lead to the water-taxi hub.He noted that this project is necessary since the Stelling is the main gateway to visit resorts and other destinations in the Essequibo River and neighbouring places.“Because of the fact that the region is a gateway to the Essequibo and the other islands, we are now proposing to have some initiatives in place to promote tourism. At the Stelling, we will be proposing to have additional features which will boost the Region’s economy. We feel that this location is an ideal place to start, because a lot of people enter through there and then divert to other places, like Bartica and Baganara and so on,” Khan said.He added, “The boardwalk at the northern side will be 12 feet in width, and also (there will be) one on the eastern side from east to west. We will have a platform there also, so that when people enter with the water-taxi, they would not get wet. We want to establish facilities where foreigners can have local fruit drinks and other items, and they can also visit a craft store to buy Guyanese merchandises and souvenirs. A brochure of places that they can go to is also another thing.”He indicated that special attention would be given to the type of transportation that is designated for tourists. This will be done by ensuring that drivers are allocated to specifically transport tourists.“We want to have special taxis and put a tourist booth there with special uniformed taxi (operators). They would be responsible for assisting the tourists with whatever place they want to go. In terms of maintenance, we are looking forward to having the taxis pay a fee every month, which will go into other works and sustaining the facility,” he said.The roadway from Vreed-en-Hoop to Parika is also on the agenda of the Chamber of Commerce. They say that maintenance activities are timely and the construction of hangout spots along the highway.“So the Stelling is currently the flagship project and we want to have other locations along the way to Parika maintained, and other things which can attract people. Some areas were identified. For the recent road that was rehabilitated (that leads to Parika), it is a model road and we hope that it is kept that way. What we want to see is that the sidewalks should remain as it is and bushes should not be growing to take over the road,” he said.Khan notified that he is cognisant that these projects would each bear a hefty cost, and hence the Region is looking to engage public and private stakeholders who share similar interests. The Public Infrastructure Ministry had also indicated that the much-awaited rehabilitation of the stelling will commence shortly. The Committee noted that this will aid in the essential modification of the structure, after which the other features can be constructed.last_img read more
