Warriors' Draymond Green using All-Defensive Team slight as motivation

Warriors' Draymond Green using All-Defensive Team slight as motivation

Motivation
In most games last season, when he went to guard a pick-and-roll, Warriors forward Draymond Green saw an opposing player wave him off. It was a repeated reminder that teams still considered him one of the league’s top few defenders. However, media didn’t necessarily agree. After finishing in the top two of Defensive Player of the Year voting three seasons in a row, Green wasn’t even considered a serious candidate for the award in 2018. Now, with little more than a week until Golden State’s season opener against Oklahoma City, he is using that slight as motivation as he chases his second career DPOY award. ...

Unusual loss serves as extra motivation for Monroe City

Unusual loss serves as extra motivation for Monroe City

Motivation
Posted: Oct. 8, 2018 8:20 am MONROE CITY, Mo. -- The final score was surprising, even for the Monroe City softball team. The Panthers suffered a 10-0 loss to Clarence Cannon Conference rival Highland on Oct. 1, just nine days before the start of district play. It was the team's worst loss of the season -- Monroe City had just two entering that game -- and came against a Highland team that used a six-game winning streak in late September to get above .500. That loss largely came from a seven-run second inning, perhaps Monroe City's worst inning of the season. "It was just one of those games where nothing went right for us," Monroe City coach Melissa Chinn said. "(Highland) hit every hole we had. We couldn't get anything going offensively. Nothing w...

ANTIOCH, Tenn - Tia Waggoner, 22, who survived the deadly Waffle House shooting is learning to walk again since being shot in her leg. At the time, doctors didn't think they could save her leg or if she would ever walk again – but she proved them wrong."I have a metal rod in my leg and screws and basically I lost all function in the bottom so being able to lift my foot up and down I can no longer do that," she said. Waggoner began taking her first steps again with a walker in August. "You think I would be excited but I wasn’t because when I started learning how to walk I had just had knee surgery three weeks prior.
