A Great Day in Gainesville

GAINESVILLE, Fla. --- Saturday morning July 25 promised to be a good day. It was hot, it was humid, but it was nice to see that everybody was able to gather and take the responsibility at a sporting event to follow the rules without panic.

The building that is home to the Gladden Boxing Club does not dominate the skyline, but it does stand out as a place where great things are being provided for this community.

Champions of the Community

SPRING HILL, Fla. --- They are looking for a name for their team but under the summer sky of July, these four young gladiators greeted each other with laughter, with plenty of fist bumps and a show of respect for the work that they each have put behind them.

This group of boxers who were not yet attached to any gym worked together at perfecting their craft. They dance around the ring, throwing calculated punches with the hope that one punch lands on their target with enough devastating power that leaves their opponent wondering.

What kind of truck just hit them!

Tampa Bay’s Tom Brady trains with Deion Sanders’ son

TAMPA- When you’re one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, it helps to have a famous parent get you the hook up for workouts. That hook up in this case is Hall of Famer Deion Sanders’ son, Shedeur, getting to workout with Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ quarterback Tom Brady.

Last weekend, the two met up in Tampa, FL to workout together and they appeared to form a strong bond once the workout concluded. Shedeur Sanders is a senior quarterback who plays at Trinity Christian School in Cedar Hill, Texas and is the 34th ranked player in the state, according to 247Sports.
