Stewart felt at home at local tracks

Tony Stewart had kissed the bricks at Indy and could have jetted off to any vacation destination.

Or he could have headed home for a night of rest during NASCAR’s 9-month schedule.

Instead, a little more than 24 hours after winning the Brickyard 400, Stewart traveled to Iowa to watch sprint car races.

But when some fans noticed the driver nicknamed Smoke, they began heckling him for hanging around the track on a Monday night.

Sprint car driver Terry McCarl grabbed a microphone.

“This guy just won the Brickyard yesterday,” McCarl says he told the crowd. “He could be in Hawaii today with a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader and instead, he’s at Oskaloosa, Iowa, at a dirt track race.”

The fans erupted in cheers.

Kirksey making presence felt to Browns

BEREA (AP) — When veteran linebacker Karlos Dansby looks at rookie Chris Kirksey, it’s like staring in the mirror.

And what’s looking back at him has potential — a lot of it.

“He reminds me of me,” Dansby said. “He has potential to be one of the best to ever do it if he applies himself.”

Kirksey is impressing everyone so far in his first NFL training camp and he’s doing it by leaning on the veterans around him, like Craig Robertson — whom he is battling for playing time at the weakside position — and Dansby.

The 6-2, 235-pound rookie’s attitude and work ethic hasn’t been lost on Dansby, who is entering his 11th year in the league. And to help Kirksey along, Dansby has been trying to lead by example.

Kirksey’s presence at camp hasn’t been lost on Browns coach Mike Pettine, either. Pleased with the young linebacker’s performance so far — he had three tackles in the Browns’ preseason opener — Pettine said earlier in the week that Kirksey would get more time with the first-team defense in practice.

And there he was on Wednesday, standing alongside Dansby on a number of plays, before breaking into coverage against both tight ends and even a couple of receivers in team drills.

DELPHOS — St. John’s and Bath met up to open the 2014 football scrimmage season Tuesday morning at Stadium Park.

As to be expected for the first live action, both coaches agreed their respective units are works in progress, especially considering that hitting during practice only began Thursday.

“For a first scrimmage, we did good things and we found things we need to work on. That’s usual,” Blue Jays coach Todd Schulte said. “We’ll go back to the films later and go over what we did well and what we can do better. We’ll get back out on the practice field (today) and set about to improving our weaknesses.”

Wildcat coach Bill Garland was exceedingly happy.
