One was to go back to his high school in Akron, St. Vincent-St. Mary, and practice with the football team.There, he first met Parris Campbell, who would later go on to play for James’ favorite college football team, Ohio State. The two have stayed in close contact since then, with the Lakers star going on Twitter to congratulate Campbell after big performances.It’s not something that the wide receiver Campbell, in Pasadena with the Buckeyes for the Rose Bowl, takes for granted.Related Articles UCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers NCAA cancels fall championships, although some football conferences march on Alexander: Was there more to Pac-12 delay than health and safety?

He was transitioning from running back to wide receiver, and was growing frustrated by the position change.Campbell ran into James at a St. Vincent-St. Mary basketball game, and the three-time NBA champion offered Campbell some advice.“He just always told me to never give up on myself and to continue to be great; that I had greatness all around me and continue to blossom,” Campbell recalled. “So put the work in and never give up.”After that, Campbell developed into one of Ohio State’s top receivers. He was named to the All-Big Ten first team after a senior season in which he made 79 receptions for 992 yards and 11 touchdowns, all career highs.After Campbell’s breakout 147-yard, two-touchdown performance against Tulane in September, James was quick to react on Twitter.“I [see] you today lil bro!!” James tweeted at Campbell. “Keep shining #OH #GoBucks #AkronBoys.” “It means a lot, just because two kids from the same area, grew up experiencing the same things, went to the same high school, it’s huge,” the senior Campbell said. “Just being a kid from Akron, everyone there looks up to him, wants to do the things that he’s done. I have an opportunity to go on a different stage, the NFL, try to continue some of those things he’s given back to the city.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Beats by Dre Banned by the NFL

first_imgThe National Football League has banned the use of the ultra-popular headphones, Beats by Dre.That’s because the NFL has struck an exclusive deal with the struggling competitor Bose in a deal that was struck back before the season started. As a condition of that agreement, Bose’s headphones would be the official headphones of the league.The NFL ban reportedly goes into effect immediately.Beats Electronics has worked extensively to get athletes wearing its product, featuring stars like Colin Kaepernick in its advertising, and sponsoring numerous others.The deal will prevent players from using the headphones specifically while they’re on camera, as that is vital publicity for Bose, which ranks far behind Beats in the headphones market.Though Beats by Dre are expensive — headphones costing $100 or more — Beats dominates with 61 percent of the market share, compared to Bose’s 22.Most consumers forgot that Apple bought Beats by Dre back in May for a whopping $3 billion, citing the company’s headphones and music streaming service as reasons for the acquisition.TechCrunch later updated its story to say Beats would be gradually rolled into iTunes instead.  Another important thing to note is this isn’t the first time a major sporting body has decided to ban Beats.FIFA tried a similar tactic as the NFL’s ahead of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, but prominent players, including Mario Balotelli and Neymar defied that ban and visibly wore the headphones.last_img read more
