Bryan Transfer Sean McGary helps Central Eagles to Soar

Posted on February 18, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , |

Honor Student Sheds Some Light On Central’s Success On the Court

Omaha Central Guard Sean McGary

Sean McGary, Guard (6-1, 175), Omaha Central

   Way back when the pint-sized ten-year-old Sean McGary was running around the North Omaha Boys and Girls Club (NOBGC) practice track, he struck me as one of those little kids who you knew would make his mark someday. And the junior transfer from Bryan is beginning to do just that as the starting 2 guard for what is arguably the state’s best basketball program: Omaha Central.

    Much of the foundation for Sean’s current success at Central was built at the NOBGC, where my first recollections of him was watching the youngster run the 200 and 400 meter sprints for the their Jaguars Track Team. Although small for his age, Sean ran with a vengeance and toughness that made it hard for you not to notice him–he was the kind of kid that if you were in the stands you rooted for just because of the determined energy that he put out with every stride.

   Sean’s heart and athletic ability more than made up for any lack of size he gave up to his competition, and he would go on to do quite well on the track and on the football field for the NOBGC. However, it was when the multi-talented McGary was on the basketball court that you could tell what he really loved to do.

   On the basketball court, Sean was a fearless little warrior, always on the move tying to create something for his team or himself or to take the ball or an opportunity away from his opponents. Unfortunately, for me, at about the time Sean turned 14, I lost track of him, as my kids moved on to high school.

   Fast forward to the 2008/2009 basketball season and the little warrior, the kid that was—small for his age- has blossomed into a 6-foot-1, 175 pound starting guard for the Omaha Central Eagles.

Recently, I finally managed to catch up to Sean in an effort to find out what makes him tick and the Central Eagles to soar.

Q.  So Sean, what made you leave Bryan after your sophomore year?

A.   Mainly it was a family move that worked out because they [Bryan] plays a slower more deliberate style of offense and Central’s style is more fast paced and aggressive like I’m used to.

And remembering how he use to play as a preteen, his answer made perfect sense to me.

Q.  So what is it like to play for Central—the state champs and all versus playing for Bryan? I mean do you guys ever feel like no one can beat your team?

A:  The biggest difference is the way that people in the community treat you. They seem to be more into the game and more willing to speak to you and tell you you played a good game and things like that. But no one on our team ever feels like we can’t be beat. We never take anyone for granted. We know that if we don’t play our game we can be beat.

   “It wasn’t too long into our conversation that I realized that Sean McGary had grown up to become a sharp, level-headed young man that not only excels on the court but also in the classroom too.

   McGary is a Central High School honors student who carries an outstanding 3.78 GPA.

   Sean McGary, the honor student and basketball star, is a far cry from the—stereotypical–inner city school student that unfortunately is often a reality that we find being represented on the the losing end of some nightmarish statistical data. Perhaps the number one reason why Sean has ended up on the winning side of the numbers is because of his strong-willed supportive parents.

   Sean’s success both on and off the court can be attributed to his mother, Marilyn, a former CEO of the Omaha Urban League, who you can always seem to find at one of Sean’s events, and his father, Phillip, a minister who spent many years as a volunteer basketball coach on some of Sean’s basketball teams. Sean also has two bothers Philip and Brandon who were standout basketball players at Omaha South.”

Q.  So how did you get the starting job at Central?

A.  Coach [ Eric Behrens] saw my game over the summer and he liked what I was doing at practice before the start of the season. So I got the job.

Q.  What kind of style do you play? I mean if you had to pick a college or pro player that best resembled your style of play who would it be?

A.  I’m more like a Dwayne Wade type, I can shoot from outside, but I like to attack the basket and create for my teammates.

Q. So what is your job on the court—what is your responsibility?

A.  My job is to cover the other team’s best player, usually the point guard and to make sure I help to control things up top on offense.

Q.  OK. You see some negative comments about Central players on the message boards like “they don’t play team ball and they just like to showboat and play selfish.” What do you say about that?

A.  You know, everyone on our team can get 15 – 20 points at anytime. There is just a lot of talent. It may not always look like we play together but we do. I think one of the keys to Central’s success is that Coach Behrens lets us play our game within the game.

Q. So you mean he is not the type of coach that says it has to be exactly like this and nothing else?

A.  Yea. He really understands the little things about how the game should be played. That is one the biggest misconceptions that people have about Central. They think we win just because of athletes. No. We win games because Coach Behrens is a very good coach who knows the game and how to get the best out of his players.

He is not the kind of coach who yells a lot at you but when he does—he has your full attention.

Q.  Have you drawn any D-1 interest yet?

A.   I had Southern Illinois express some interest but nothing real solid from anybody yet.

Q.  Is there a part of your game you need to work on?

A.   Oh yea, I need to work on everything, but I think more than anything it would be getting more consistent with my outside shot.

Q.   So when you go to college what do you want to major in?

A.   I want to be a sports agent or something similar as long as it involves sports. I have been in sports all my life and I love it. I want to stay in the sports field.

Q.  Alright Sean, what are your team’s chances on winning another title this year?

A.  We would all like to win that fourth title, but this year it’s wide open! Anybody can win it. We are just going to have to stay focused and play our best ball in order to win this year.

Thanks Sean and good luck.

Kildow to Walk-On To Nebraska: Will Others Follow?

Posted on January 22, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , |

An Opinion On Nebraka’s Instate Recruiting Strategy

By Will Cummings
my Hit News.com

   Ty Kildow, Millard South’s dual sport All-State speedster, has decided to walk-on at Nebraska University. 

   The All-State first team football and baseball player missed his entire senior football season due to freak summer knee injury that required surgery.  Ironically, the incident occurred on the NU campus during a seven-on-seven high school summer league contest.

   There is no doubt that Kildow–who this past summer turned in a blazing 4.39 second 40 yard dash time at a Husker camp–is the most explosive player in Nebraska’s high school class of 2009.  Consequently, he is a huge pick-up for the Huskers.  Especially considering that Kildow has a full ride scholarship on the table from D-1AA North Dakota as well as from several other D-II schools.

Cotton Comes To Omaha For Walk-ons

   Husker coach Barney Cotton has been busy making the rounds this week to various Omaha Nebraska high schools attempting to persuade some high school prospects –who already have offers from other schools–to walk-on at Nebraska.  It looks like Cotton’s work paid off with Kildow.  However, the question is: “With  a little less than two weeks left until the February 4th signing day, will other Nebraska high school players follow Kildow’s lead? 

Questions

   My questions are why the Huskers have offered only two scholarships to the Nebraska high school class of  2009 football players? And why should Nebraska parents encourage their young men to walk-on to a program that seems to only be interested in pursuing our kids as–free–fodder for out-of-stat–paid–recruits? 

   If  last year’s thirty-some walk-ons and this homegrown recruiting class’ numbers (or lack thereof) are a blueprint for the future of how Bo Pelini and staff intend to do business in this state– how long  will Nebraskans keep buying it?

Just too many Class of 2009  Nebraska prospects offered D-1 scholarships from other programs that were never offered by the Huskers.

In my opinion, It’s just not a good look.

Cummings Commits to University of South Dakota

Posted on January 5, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , , , |

Eric Cummings

Eric Cummings

   Over the recently concluded school holiday break, Omaha Burke’s All-State defensive lineman Eric Cummings gave an oral commitment to attend the University of South Dakota. 

   The 6-2, 265 lb. Cummings is rated the No. 10 prospect in Nebraska by Rivals and the 70th DT prospect in the country by ESPN. 

   A three year strarter at defensive end for the Burke  Bulldogs, Cummings is being recruited by the Coyotes’ coaching staff to play defensive tackle.

 Why USD?

   Cummings stated that his decision to commit to USD was greatly influenced by the Coyotes’ coaching  staff and in particular  Defensive Coordinator Jarod Dodson, who was a 2007 finalist for the American Football Coaches Association Assistant Coach of the Year award.  

   “I really liked the coaching staff and how they treated me. Coach Dodson has great energy and he just made me feel part of the team already.  And I think I can learn a lot from Coach Sprauge, my position coach.”

    Defensive line coach Jake Sprague is a former Wisconsin Badger and a 2002 All-Big Ten honorable mention defensive lineman.

Other Schools   

   Asked about other schools pursuing him Cummings stated, “Nebraska wants me to walk on and a couple of other D-1 schools like Ohio University have still not decided on me. But I do have some offers from other D-IAA  and Division II schools.

   Right now, though, walking on is not an option for me.  And, in the end, my decision to attend any school will come down to how I feel about the staff and the players on the team.

   I feel good about both at USD.  And that’s why I committed to them.”

  Cummings Wrestles for First Time

   Cummings also mentioned that he wanted to get the recruiting process over as soon as possible so that he can concentrate on wrestling, a sport he just recently picked up.

   Only having been a member of Burke’s wrestling team for just two weeks and competing in his first high school wrestling match this past weekend, Cummings managed to get by some state ranked opponents on his way  to picking up a couple of wins and capturing a third place finish at the Tom Dineen Invitational Wrestling Tournament.

2008 Football Honors

   In 2008 Cummings was selected All-State Class A first team DL and Super State second team DL by the Lincoln Journal Star and All-Metro Conference first team DL by the Omaha World-Herald.

  Family Sports Bio

    Cummings’ father, William Gary Cummings, played football at Kansas State and Ohio State and his grandfather, Bill Cummings Jr., was a member of Ohio State University’s 1954 national championship team and a 1957 draft pick of the Cleveland Browns. Bill Cummings Jr. was also a two-time Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) USA Boxing Coach of the Year awardee.

 University of South Dakota Information

    The University of South Dakota is a Division I-AA school, located in Vermillion, South Dakota (pop. 10,251) and it is a member of the Great West Conference.

   The Coyotes head coach is Ed Meierkort who will be entering his sixth season at the helm in 2009. Under Meierkort, the Coyotes have posted five consecutive winning seasons, finishing the 2008 campaign at 6-5.

Metro Tournament Recap:Bryan Awakens & Belle East Rises

QUARTERFINALS

Bryan 68, Omaha Benson 49: Bryan used offensive balance and good work on the board to coast by the Bunnies (3-3) for the 2ndtime this year. Up until recently, Bryan is a team that has been a bit of a disappointment. Despite having a lot of talent, Bryan struggled early on in the season but now they find themselves starting to hit the mark. The Bears were led by super soph sensation Galen Gullie’s 12 points and another 11 by senior Tiit Kuek’s. Deng Reng also reached double figures with 10.

Benson’s biggest weakness–no post–showed again as they were out-rebounded. Sophomore Avery Langford had 13 while senior superstar Stevelle Burns threw in 12 along with anther 12 added by sophomore C.J. Carter.

Omaha Burke 62, Omaha Central 61: Burke avenged an early season loss and handed the Eagles their first loss of the season. Three Burke players scored in double figures: junior power forward Scott Davis had 20 points to go along with his’11 rebounds; junior sharpshooter Ray McGaugh added 14 and sophomore Adonis Hillfinished with. Hill was also very impressive at breaking Central’s unforgiving press and relentless pressure defense.

Junior standout Deverelle Biggs led the three-time defending state champs with 17 points.

Creighton Prep 46, Papillion-La Vista South 29: Prep guard Taylor Stormberg got going early and led the Jays with 14 points, Nick Davis added 8 points and a 2 handed slam dunk. Caleb Steffensmeir, who is one of the best ball handlers in the state, had 7 points .

Papio South which fell to 4-3 was led in scoring by Jalen Huser with 7.

Bellevue East 54, Millard South 38: All-Nebraska post man Jarrell Crayton scored a game high 20 points and brought down 10 rebounds. Evan Williamsscored 10 and Tyson Reeveshad 6 points. Both Williams andReeves stepped up when the moment demanded. Reeves really helped his team seal the victory out with his great work on the defensive end.

 Millard South, who upset Bellevue West to get into the quarterfinals, was led by sophomore football star Quentin Urban and his game high 17 points. Vondrae Tostensonadded 8 points andhe also provided some crowd whooping entertainment with his highlight-reel dunk over Bellevue’s Crayton.

The key to Bellevue East’s victory was the numerous number of Millard South turnovers. The miscues prevented them from getting any rhythm or establishing an inside presence with post Storm Throne, who needs to be productive down low for the Patriots to win games.

SEMI FINALS
Bellevue East 63, Creighton Prep 56: Bellevue East kept working and playing hard even though phenom erald Crayton spent much of the game off the court due to foul trouble. It was a typical gutsy performance by a a that we’ve grown to expect from a Jason Ryancoached team. Belle East simply refused to give in while Crayton was off the floor. Yet despite his limited playing time Craytonstill managed to lead his team in scoring with 14. Stepping up for Belle East were Matt Wallace and Joel Butts, who both scored 13 points each on their way to upsetting the pre-season No. 1 Creighton Prep

Prep was led in scoring by senior guard Max Huerter’s 14 and Taylor Stormberg’s 10. Unfortunately, Prep’s post Bret Potter did not have his best tournament, Prep is as good as anyone in the state only if Potter plays to his ability However, in this tournament game Potter again failed to reach double digits, finishing with 9 points.

Omaha Bryan 53, Omaha Burke 52: Burke lost a 8 point lead with just over 2 minutes to play thanks in large part to the efforts of Tiit Kuek, who scored a game high 23 points. The guard went on his own 8-0 scoring run in the 4th quarter including two 3s and a dunk off a steal that he created. Junior ball handler Ben Imig who is also a top ball handler chipped in 10.

Burke was led in scoring by guards Ray McGuagh(12) and Adonis Hill (10). Burke falls to 4-3.

Bryan and Bellevue East will play  for the title.

Update by Will:

Action Force correctly  predicted 3 out of  the 4 quartefinal  games including the Burke upset over Central.

   Omaha Bryan, led by a strong 23 point performance by Galen Gullie, won The Metro Conference Holiday Basketball title by defeating Bellevue East 60-48.

   Bryan’s performance and their ability to claim the school’s first Metro Holiday Tournament is another reason to give Action Force a little love–he stated in his Breakdown:

“Bryan must find some team chemistry!  Bryan is the best team –on paper–in the state.”

 It looks like Bryan found some chemistry.  And it also seems that Action Force knows a thing or two about Nebraska high school basketball.

Michael Burrus Receives Offer From North Dakota

Posted on December 14, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , |

By Will Cummings
Hit News @ Hit Hihghlights
  
    Papillion-LaVista South’s Michael Burrus, a consensus Nebraska First Team Super State running back, has received a full ride offer from the University of North Dakota.
   Burrus’ parents confirmed the offer to Hit News via an email sent on Saturday December 13.

   Burrus was the Class A leading rusher this past season, gaining 1826 yards on the ground to go along with is 22 TDs.

   This is the first known offer for the explosive and elusive RB who garnered late attention from college recruiters as a result of his outstanding senior season.

   Burrus’ abilities, speed and toughness are indicative of a division I back. However, his size (5-8, 165) seems to be a deterrent for  prospective  colleges.  The afformentioned  along with his relatively late arrival onto the recruiting scene are the only reasons why this outstanding back–who is also very good at catching the ball out of the backfield– has not received more attention.

“Hit News believes that Michael Burrusis a legitimate D-1 caliber back! And we all know that in the pst  there have been similar sized high school running backs who have gone on to have stellar careers at the D-1 and professional levels.

   The University of North Dakota is a division I-AA school and is a member of the Great West Conference. The Fighting Sioux finished the 2008 season with a 6-4 record.

Defensive Player Of The Year

Jordan Hale, DB
Millard South


In addition to being among the top scorers and rushers in the state as a RB, Hale was just as prolific on defense as an explosive run stopper and pass defender, who helped to lead his team to a Class A state finals appearance, where he recorded two interceptions.

Will Cummings’ Life Snapshot

Posted on October 20, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Will Cummings In a Flash

“A quick peek at my life” 

Hometown–Columbus, Ohio.
Height 6’4″  Weight 230 lb — still at my college playing weight.

Sports Played
Football (LB, TE) all-state; Track (Shot Put) all-state; Basketball (C) all-district. I also boxed, off and and on, from age 6 – 13–and here is why:

Father
My father, William “Bill” Cummings Jr., played for Ohio State University and was a member of Woody Hayes’ first national championship team in 1954. Drafted as a DT by Cleveland Browns 1956, he went on to became a prominent figure in the sport of amateur boxing.  Among other accomplishments in the sport, he was twice selected National Amateur Boxing coach of the Year. His first national champion was Bill “Dynamite” Douglas, father of Buster Douglas–the man who pulled off the biggest upset in the history of professional boxing by knocking out Mike Tyson. 

College
Recruited by Ohio State as a LB–I had no desire to follow in my father’s footsteps. However,  fate has its ways. Eventually, I accepted a scholarship to Kansas State University.
 
To sum up my K-State adventure: my sophomore year I transferred back home to Ohio State–fate.
 
I left one of college’s worst football programs to attend a University with a winning football tradition and storied past, I paid attention to what made the difference! 

Woody Hayes Hits Clemson Player
Shortly before the infamous 1978 Gator Bowl, my father and I sat down with Woody Hayes in his office at the Buckeye training complex to solidify my transfer and to go over rules and expectations.  Approximately a week or so later, my father and I are at home watching the Gator Bowl on TV and we see Woody hit that Clemson player and grab him by the neck. Oh Woody! 
 
Woody was fired for the incident, to my fathers’ dismay–he loved Coach Hayes. 

The Woody Hayes I knew was a great man who made sure to take care of all of his players long after their playing days were over. I often had the pleasure of listening to my father and his best friend and former teammate the great Jim Parker (in my opinion still the greatest offensive linemen to ever play the game) tell their stories about Woody. No matter how bad the incident–you could always see and hear the admiration and respect they had for the man.
 
Injury
In the fall of ’79 I underwent a–then–relatively new sports reconstructive surgery procedure for a torn MCL, ACL, LCL and and cartilage. 
 
The 1979 Buckeyes, under first year coach Earl Bruce, finished the  regular season undefeated and a few minutes away from a national championship title, until USC’s RB Charles White ruined our day at the Rose Bowl.

Boxing
In 1980, while rehabbing my knee, I started training boxers alongside my father.  It didn’t take long for me to make it a full-time endeavor and to forgo my football ambitions. My father became my mentor and my best friend.

The Golden Age of Boxing 
The 1970’s through mid 1980’s were considered the golden age of boxing in the USA.  The 1984 Olympic Boxing Team  is considered the greatest of all-time.  One of the gold medalist on that team was Jerry Page, who started boxing for my father at age 6. 
 
In 1984, I was selected to serve as Technical Adviser to the World International Amateur Boxing Federation President for the 1984 Olympic Games (fancy credential for a gofor, but hey–free trip to LA and the Olympics and to be in VIP!)

Later that year, I was selected the Head Coach for the International USA Boxing Team that toured Poland–at the time it was believed that at age 25 I was the youngest head coach for any USA international team. 
 
My father died in April of 1985.  A month later, I was elected to succeed my father as Commissioner of the Ohio Association Amateur Boxing Federation–it was the governing body for the sport of amateur boxing for most of the Ohio territory. 

Later that year, I retired from the position and the sport of amateur boxing.

Military Service
Joined the US Army in 1989–served in Desert Storm (1991-1992).

Children
Sons Born: William Alexander Cummings (1989) and Eric James Cummings (1990).

Moved to Omaha, Nebraska in 1994.

 Community Service In Omaha

  • Former Volunteer coach for Omaha Boys and Girls Club track and Field.

  • Co-founder and former vice president of Coalition Against Injustice.

    That’s a quick tour of my crazy life.
