Lawrence said in September that he plans to play in the junior season, graduate in December and move to the NFL.

MIAMI – Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator Chan Gailey resigned one season after retirement.

The Dolphins finished 10-6 with one of the NFL’s youngest teams. Sunday in Buffalo, where the loss fell, eliminated them from the playoffs.

The 25-year-old Bjorkstrand led the team in goals (21), winning goals (five) and multi-point trips (11) and finished third in shots (162), although he missed 21 matches due to a pandemic – the shortened 2019-20 season.
Mike Whan is leaving the LPGA tour after 11 years as commissioner, a surprising announcement on Wednesday that comes just three weeks after he toured with the season-shortened COVID-19 pandemic.

Although the pandemic ended the LPGA Tour for five months and resulted in a decade of savings, Whan says the tour came out even more financially safer.
He did not give a clear reason why he resigned or said what he would do next.
