Chad Kelly has a reputation not that far off from Johnny Manziel.

An NFL team that drafts him for his talent on the field would also draft the potential issues he might have off of it. Kelly’s name was recently brought up with a fight concerning his brother on the field at his old high school. The nephew of legendary Bills quarterback Jim Kelly, he was reportedly also kicked off his high school team and was dismissed from Clemson following a public event where he was seen yelling at coaches.

NFL teams can trust him, Kelly recently said In an extensive profile of Kelly by MMQB but his swagger is also a selling point. Here is what he would say in a mock interview with an NFL general manager.

Ole Miss men’s tennis will be well-represented at the second major of the year, as junior All-American Gustav Hansson received an at-large bid to the USTA/ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships and will join teammates Fabian Fallert and Grey Hamilton in New York next week.

One of three individual national championship events on the college tennis calendar, the tournament runs Nov. 3-6 at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, New York, the site of the U.S. Open.

Hansson, ranked No. 18 nationally, was one of six players to earn an at-large bid. He currently owns a 6-2 record this fall and reached the third round at the ITA All-American Championships and the semifinals at the ITA Southern Regional Championships.

Fallert and Hamilton booked their ticket to New York last week when they won the ITA Southern Regional Doubles Championship.

“We are very excited that Gustav will join Fabian and Grey at the USTA/ITA National Indoors in New York next week,” head coach Toby Hansson said. “This is one of the most prestigious collegiate tournaments of the year played at one of the greatest venues in tennis. To be among a select field of the top players in college tennis is a huge achievement, but the guys are not satisfied with just getting to New York, they want to compete for the title.”

Look for more on the tournament next week, including thoughts from the players as they get set to compete for a national title.

Last year, Colby Bortles was captain of the losing side in the 2015 Pizza Bowl. Getting a second chance as team captain this year, the senior made sure his squad got off to a good start, providing a double and a solo homer in an 8-1 victory in game one Wednesday afternoon.

Team Bortles recorded 10 hits in the seven-inning game; eight of the nine guys in the lineup smacked at least one hit. Alongside Bortles’ multi-hit game, Michael Fitzsimmons went 2-for-3 with a team-high three runs scored.

Behind the arms of James McArthur and Thomas Spinelli, Team Bortles held Team Blackman to just one run on five hits. McArthur, the first overall pick in the Pizza Bowl Draft on Monday, lived up to his selection by allowing one run on three hits through the maximum 5.0 innings. Spinelli made sure Team Blackman didn’t threaten to comeback, tossing a pair of scoreless frames.

In the top of the second, Team Bortles tallied three runs off freshman Ryan Rolison. Nick Fortes ripped a base hit up the middle to plate the game’s first run before a bases-loaded single by Thomas Dillard added two more runs on the board. One inning later, sophomore DJ Miller belted a two-run homer to increase his teams lead to 5-0.

Bortles doubled in the fourth, crossing home plate on a single by Chase Cockrell. After Team Blackman scored its lone run of the game on a sacrifice fly by Carson Klepzig, Bortles got the run back for his team with a solo shot over the left field bullpen. A double steal attempt increased the advantage to seven, leading to the final 8-1 tally.

The Pizza Bowl continues tomorrow afternoon (Oct. 27) at 3 p.m. from Swayze Field. Team Bortles will look to win the Pizza Bowl tomorrow, while Team Blackman will try to respond with a victory for force a deciding game three.
