The Flyers selected Noah Cates during the fifth round of the 2017 NHL draft, plucking him out of Stillwater Area High School in Minnesota with the 137th overall pick. At the time, Brent Flahr, Chuck Fletcher and the Minnesota Wild were sitting at No. 147. "A kid like Cates was right in our backyard," Flahr said. "One thing in Minnesota when you are there, you hate when Minnesota players, especially the good ones, go ahead of you." Flahr can now thank Flyers amateur scout Nick Pryor. As the assistant general manager of the Flyers, Flahr no longer has to kick himself for missing out on Cates. "Nick Pryor did a good job," Flahr said last month at development camp. "He was right near his house. They got him. He looks like a real good prospect for us." (Zack Hill/Philadelphia Flyers) As a fi...

Binotto sees Red Bull improvement as motivation for Ferrari – Racer

Motivation
By: Chris Medland | 4 hours ago Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto is using the performance of Red Bull as a motivating factor for his own team as both look to close the gap to Mercedes. Max Verstappen climbed through the field to win the Austrian Grand Prix and then looked to have a pace advantage over the Ferraris at Silverstone before being hit by Sebastian Vettel. That opened the door for Charles Leclerc to take the final spot on the podium behind the Mercedes pair of Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas, and Binotto says the recent performances of Red Bull are pushing Ferrari to improve quickly. “They certainly improved, and if I look at the last two races as a matter of fact they won in Austria and they have been very competitive (at

No longer wanted in Anaheim, Corey Perry brings extra motivation and a championship pedigree to the Stars – Dallas News

Motivation
ARLINGTON -- Corey Perry has erased last season from his mind. Perry -- who signed a one-year, $1.5-million contract with the Stars two weeks ago -- only played 31 games for Anaheim last year, missing four months after surgery on his right meniscus and MCL during the preseason. When he returned, Perry put up career-low numbers for goals (six) and assists (four). His 14:49 of average ice time was his lowest since he was 21 years old.The injury and the production led Anaheim to buy out the remaining two years on Perry's contract that carried a $8.625 million cap hit. He landed with the Stars, who could pay Perry an additional $1.75 million in bonuses based on games played and number of playoff rounds."You never want to hear that, that you're no longer needed or wanted," Perry said Wed...

Kirby Smart: Motivation 'easy' to find for Georgia in 2019 – 247Sports

Motivation
HOOVER, Ala. -- Georgia's head coach doesn't believe there will be any issue when it comes to his team's motivation in 2019. The Bulldogs have gone 24-5 over the past two seasons, a mark that is cause for excitement but with 13 straight wins over SEC Eastern Division opponents and a pair of league title game appearances in two years (one SEC championship), it stands to reason that the regular season might lose some of its luster. That won't be the case according to Kirby Smart. After finishing the 2018 season with two consecutive losses, both in post-season play, his team should be locked and loaded when they travel to Vanderbilt for the season and conference opener on August 31. "It's easy. You turn it on and see," Smart said Tuesday at SEC Media Days. "It's more than the fourth quarte...

Tre’Davious White: Bills will use Madden ratings as “extra motivation” – NBCSports.com

Motivation
Getty Images The release of this year’s Madden ratings has generated responses around the football world, including many players who feel their digital counterparts have been underrated by the game’s designers. According to cornerback Tre'Davious White, that group includes him and his teammates with the Bills. Safety Micah Hyde got the team’s highest ranking at 86, White is an 85 and two players — linebacker Lorenzo Alexander and running back LeSean McCoy — are rated as 82s in this year’s game. White said on NFL Network that he felt the Bills were “robbed” and that the team will use it as fuel for the coming season. “We got Shady at an 82, which is very disrespectful. Then you got Josh Allen at a 74, man,” White said, via Syracuse.com. “It’s

Bears' Cohen motivated by brother's tragedy – NFL.com

Motivation
Much ado has been made regarding the Chicago Bears' motivation for 2019 coming from the devastating conclusion of 2018. It was do-it-all-spectacularly running back Tarik Cohen, after all, who pointed out that coach Matt Nagy has the team re-watching its playoff loss to the Eagles over and over. For Cohen, however, his personal motivation going forward is born of tragedy in the wake of his half-brother, Dante Norman, being shot and paralyzed from the waist down in June. "I just want to do things for him," Cohen said via the Chicago Sun Times' Madeline Kenny. "I want to just, I know it's not possible, but I feel like I want to walk for him." While Cohen cannot walk for Norman, he plans on running for him. "He's my purpose,...

Danielle HowardWe looked at the weather app and saw a three-hour window to get our bike ride in with only a 20% chance of rain. With the early summer weather being less than conducive for weekend riding, we enthusiastically grabbed the opportunity. Exercise, enjoying the beautiful day, some time at Strawberry Days, running into friends all sounded like good motivation to get out on our bikes.Enjoying the rideMark and I geared up and headed toward Glenwood Canyon, knowing we would have to turn around where the Colorado was up and over the bike path. A light sprinkle greeted us at Grizzly Creek, refreshing as we pressed on up toward Shoshone. Rain clouds and blue moved quickly across the sky. We stopped to look at familiar boating territory raging with this season’s snow melt. We watched

A lot of NBA players scrawl tiny messages on the soles of their game sneakers. Jayson Tatum typically draws a heart and writes, “Deuce,” the nickname of his young son. Kyrie Irving used to write “Whiplash,” a reference to the movie, with some family nods on the opposite side of his shoes.But Celtics rookie Carsen Edwards’ motivation isn’t as subtle. During his time at Vegas summer league, Edwards continued a college tradition of wrapping his right wrist with athletic tape and writing inspirational messages in black Sharpie.HELP MAMA OUTTHANK GODHAVE FUNKILL EVERYTHINGThe messages might not have been particularly noteworthy if Edwards hadn’t forced eyeballs on himself in Vegas. In Boston’s five summer games, Edwards averaged a team-best 19.4 points (6.4
