Jeremiah Kirven Detroit Free Press Published 4:18 PM EDT Jun 19, 2019 Jamal Agnew delivered wisdom Wednesday morning in the form of a short-but-sweet commencement speech to the graduating class of the Detroit Lions Academy — a Detroit Public Schools Community District alternative middle school located on the east side of the city. The school In front of 22 future high schoolers and their family members in an end zone at Ford Field, the third-year Lions cornerback and return specialist began with humor, then turned serious when discussing three points to success in life: being a great leader, setting goals and asking for help. “Everybody has to be a leader in their own right,” Agnew said. “Everybody has to pull their weight, everybody has to hold each other accountable and I feel like if you guys do that, it’ll be possible for everybody in the community.” Agnew, 24, has been involved with the school since he was drafted to … [Read more...] about How Detroit Lions Academy gets struggling students back on track
Rod Beard The Detroit News Published 10:17 PM EDT Mar 15, 2019 Detroit — In the dog days of March, the Pistons are having to find ways to try to stay fresh with a condensed schedule. They finish the regular season with 14 games in 25 days, leaving little time to rest and recuperate between games. In the recent stretch of four games in six days, they won the first two, but looked sluggish at times during the final two — blowout losses at Brooklyn and Miami — to add an emphatic question mark to their playoff run.

Anthony Fenech Detroit Free Press Published 8:32 PM EDT Mar 12, 2019 FORT MYERS, Fla. — The words Daniel Norris recently said to Jordan Zimmermamnn in the Tigers' clubhouse were simple: “I just walked by and said, ‘Fix me,’ or something,” Norris said. Truth be told, Norris was kind of joking: He had been trying and failing to fix himself for a couple years now, and after that March 3 outing against the Yankees, he had no answers for the questions that were bouncing around in his over-thinking mind. Chief among those questions: Why can’t I throw hard anymore? After some investigative work, Zimmermann had an idea. Tigers pitching coach Rick Anderson sensed some stubbornness. And soon, the three of them — student, teacher and classmate — were on the back field bullpen mounds at Tiger Town, watching Norris dart angled fastballs, saying, “That’s it.” The results were two-fold, never more apparent than … [Read more...] about Detroit Tigers’ Daniel Norris got back on track vs. Red Sox
