COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. Wholesale Authentic Jerseys . -- Tommie Smith and John Carlos, the American sprinters whose raised-fist salutes at the 1968 Olympics are an ageless sign of race-inspired protest, will join the U.S. Olympic team at the White House next week for its meeting with President Barack Obama.Smith and Carlos were sent home from the Olympics after raising their black-gloved fists in a symbolic protest during the U.S. national anthem. They called it a human rights salute.USOC CEO Scott Blackmun asked them to serve as ambassadors as the federation tries to bring more diversity to its own ranks. They will join the team at the White House next Wednesday, then later that evening at an awards celebration in Washington.The sprinters have been referenced frequently in the recent protests, spurred by Colin Kaepernick, during national anthems at NFL games. One player, Marcus Peters of the Chiefs, raised his own black-gloved fist before Kansas Citys season opener.I think Tommie and John have played an important and positive role in the evolution of our attitudes about diversity and inclusion, not only in the United States but around the world, Blackmun said Friday night at a dinner to celebrate the U.S. performance in Brazil this summer. NFL Jerseys From China . -- The Bishops Gaiters are showing they belong among the countrys top varsity football teams. Wholesale NFL T-shirts . "Hes going to have hip surgery on Jan. 7, and hell be expected to rehabilitate for four to six months beyond that," Canucks general manager Mike Gillis said Friday in an interview. http://www.wholesalejerseys.xyz/ . Oyama had six birdies and two bogeys at Kintetsu Kashikojima in the event also sanctioned by the Japan LPGA Tour. "I have been having this neck ache thats been affecting my golf recently," Oyama said. STILLWATER, Okla. -- Coming into his senior season, Oklahoma State safety Jordan Sterns made a concerted effort to become a better player, both on the field and in the locker room. His hard work paid off, with an outstanding year that resulted in All-Big 12 honors.Sterns, who led the Cowboys with 108 tackles last season as a junior, felt like he had another step to take in his performance, and he made it happen.This offseason, I worked probably harder than I ever had, just because I wanted to go out this year with a bang, he said. Just working out, even when I didnt feel like it, just doing little things, stretching a little more -- in the cold weather, when I didnt want to be out there, just forcing myself to do it. Ultimately, I think thats what led to my success this year.Now Sterns is preparing for his final collegiate game, when No. 13 Oklahoma State takes on No. 11 Colorado in the Alamo Bowl on Dec. 29.Sterns was dominant for the Cowboys (9-3, 7-2) this season, leading the team in tackles again with 96, including five for a loss, along with three interceptions, matching cornerback Ramon Richards for the team lead. One of his picks was in the end zone on the final play to clinch the Cowboys 43-37 win over Kansas State on Nov. 5.He also made a point to improve his presence in the locker room, becoming a more prominent leader.Basically, I just wasnt happy with how I was off the field, Sterns said. I wasnt taking it as serious as I could have. I wanted to win, but I wasnt being a vocal leader. I wasnt getting on guys even when I thought they were doing something wrong, I was just being passive. I kind of took a look in the mirror and was like, `I need to step up. My coaches respect me, my teammates respect me, I think I could be a little more successful -- thats something I can do. China Jerseys Cheap. Richards, a junior, said Sterns made a huge contribution in leadership this year.Jordan has had more impact on me than anybody since Ive been here at Oklahoma State, said Richards, who was fourth on the team with 60 tackles. Hes been a guy whos led by example. He doesnt talk the most, but when he does talk, its very impactful. If he makes a mistake, he owns up to it. Hes just a great leader.The OSU coaches recognize the effort Sterns has put in.He comes in every day, hes just a ballplayer, defensive coordinator Glenn Spencer said. Hes always wanted to be good, always has brought an intensity to our room that youve got to have. I wish there was a lot more like him.Head coach Mike Gundy marveled at the way Sterns seems to relish the physical contact necessary at his position.I think his demeanor, hes somewhat old-school in his willingness to strike the other team, Gundy said. It goes against human nature to want to collide with another human body and I dont really think he gives a second thought about it. He brings a little bit of toughness to our program, especially our defense.Sterns final collegiate game is in San Antonio, close to his hometown of Cibolo, Texas.Just being able to go home and play in front of everybody I love, Ive played in that stadium two or three times, so Im familiar with it, Im just excited, said Sterns, who has secured 26 tickets so far for family and friends. I think its going to be a great game.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 ' ' '
