Sharp eyes from AL.com’s Matt Zenitz resulted in a rundown of the new jersey numbers for Alabama’s early enrollees and a few switches for returners. It’s fairly routine stuff, except for one number reservation that jumped out at me. Najee Harris, a freshman running back coming off a meniscus tear and a recent 5-star recruit, was given No. 22. Recen...

"Every kid or coach who participates in organized soccer on Staten Island owes him," were the words Sandy Rapaglia used to honor Dr. Gabriel Nigrin, one of the pioneers of the sport, who passed away on Sunday at the age of 93. "Doc started organized soccer on Staten Island. He's been a fixture since the 1960s. He was the man," said Rapaglia, the fo...

Martedì 21 febbraio presso la Columbia University di New York il neopresidente dei New York Cosmos, l’italoamericano Rocco Commisso, ha incontrato la squadra per la prima volta. A gennaio 2017 Commisso, proprietario anche di Mediacom (quinta compagnia di telecomunicazione negli Stati Uniti) ha rilevato i NY Cosmos impedendo il fallimento della soci...

Justin’s parents grew up in Wilmington, but his family’s roots can be...

Rocco Commisso has had plenty of chances to get involved in professional soccer in his time: in Italy, England, Major League Soccer - even the New York Cosmos four years ago. It was only bad timing that prevented the Italian-American cable TV magnate from investing in the game that he played to All-Ivy League level at Columbia University. But when...

The Italian Federation of American Football (FIDAF) held its electoral National Assembly last month in Rome with the Secretary General of the Italian National Olympic Committee (CONI) Dr. Roberto Fabbricini in attendance. The Hon. Leoluca Orlando retained his role at the helm of FIDAF with 71% of the votes. Dr. Fabbricini gave an important speech d...

Mike Piazza was jet-lagged and hungry, though you wouldn’t have known it from his smile as he navigated the obstacle course of hugs, kisses and handshakes. “Hey! Ciao! Good to see you!” he said. It has been 10 years since Piazza, 48, retired from baseball as one of the best-hitting catchers in history. It is common for stars of his stature to try o...

East Carolina’s latest record breaker for track and field in the 800-meter, sophomore Stefano Migliorati, has had a different transition into being a college athlete than most others. Migliorati hails from Calvisaro, Italy, and arrived in the United States two years ago to go to an American university. His transition has been hard particularly beca...
