The Miami Dolphins have a few tough decisions to make as the Sept. 2 cuts from the 90 player training camp roster to the 53 man regular season roster approaches, and this week’s practices and final preseason game could swing a vote or two on several units. One of the main criticisms about last year’s Dolphins was that the roster lacked depth.
By Crystal Price bio emailLAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) The State Department of Education released the 2009/2010 school performance scores to schools throughout the state of Louisiana on Thursday afternoon.These scores are based on test scores, accountability, attendance, and graduate rates.Here are the overall scores for the five different parishes in Southwest Louisiana: Allen (103.8), Beauregard (103.1), Calcasieu (101.9), Cameron (93.1), and Jeff Davis (107.3).Jeff Davis Parish Schools scored the highest district score of all the parishes in the 5 parish region and they scored 7th in the entire state of Louisiana.”We were pleased to grow,” said David Clayton, Superintendent of Jeff Davis Parish Schools. “We showed a growth of 2.3 points from last year score of 105.”Calcasieu Parish climbed from a score of 99.7 to an overall district score of 101.9.”I think for a large district, it a good amount of growth,” said Judith Vail, Accountability Coordinator for Calcasieu Parish Schools. “We would like it to be more but I think we pretty pleased with what it was.”A few schools saw an increase on their baseline scores making Prien Lake Elementary a four star school, and Combre/Fondel Elementary a two star school.However, Ralph Wilson Elementary dropped from a baseline score of 85.0 to 75.7, making this score go from a two star school to a one star.”One reason I think we had growth on our district performance score is that about 40% of our schools met their growth target,” said Vail.
In 2015, when the Bills selected Darby at No. 50 overall, the former Florida State star ran a 4.38 40 yard dash at the combine. By comparison, Jalen Mills and Rasul Douglas both ran 40s that rank in the bottom 20 percent, Douglas 4.59 ranking 86th out of 104 and Mills 4.61 ranking 90th..
Scouts have a higher opinion of Christian Arroyo than BP, which projects eight home runs and a .246/.288/.375 line for the 23 year old. “Between his promotion (to the major leagues) and a season ending hand injury, he hit the ball on the ground too often and swung through too many sliders, becoming a near automatic out once the count reached two strikes. With little left to prove in the minors, Arroyo will have to rework his approach through experience at the highest level, but most scouts remain bullish that his plus hit tool will eventually shine through.”.
