believed was his girlfriend had died within hours of one another in September. Teo said it inspired him to play h Antworten

SAN DIEGO -- Manti Teo is one of four draft picks whove signed contracts with the San Diego Chargers. Teo, the linebacker from Notre Dame, was picked by the Chargers in the second round after slipping out of the opening round in part because of a poor performance in the national championship game against Alabama. Teo also was part of a girlfriend hoax that drew national headlines. But the Chargers new brain trust, general manager Tom Telesco and coach Mike McCoy, said they werent bothered by the scrutiny Teo has been under the last four months. The Chargers even traded up in the second round to pick the linebacker. Also signing four-year deals Thursday were third-round pick Keenan Allen, a wide receiver from California; sixth-rounder Tourek Williams, an outside linebacker from Florida International; and quarterback Brad Sorensen, a seventh-rounder from Southern Utah. First-round pick D.J. Fluker, a tackle from Alabama, and fifth-rounder Steve Williams, a cornerback from Cal, remain unsigned. Teo became the butt of national jokes after it was revealed he was duped into an Internet romance with a girlfriend he never met. The too-good-to-be-true story began with Teos incredible performances after learning his grandmother and what he believed was his girlfriend had died within hours of one another in September. Teo said it inspired him to play his best football all season, and it was so compelling that it helped turn Teo into a Heisman Trophy contender as he was leading the Fighting Irish to an undefeated regular season and into the national title game. On Dec. 26, Teo notified Notre Dame officials that he had received a call from his supposedly dead girlfriends phone three weeks earlier. The school investigated and -- after broke the story of the fake girlfriend -- athletic director Jack Swarbrick announced at a news conference that Teo had been duped. Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, 22, later said he created the online persona of Lennay Kekua, a nonexistent woman who Teo said he fell in love with despite never meeting her in person.

ATHENS, Ga. --- After falling in set one, the Georgia volleyball team (13-5, 1-4) came back to earn its first SEC win of the season over South Carolina (13-3, 1-3) by a score of 3-1.Getting our first SEC win of the season is getting the monkey off our back and allowing us to stay aggressive and to really grind, said head coach Lizzy Stemke. LSU is a very different team, so well look to prepare for the team at hand, but on our side of the court I was really excited to see us grind and stay really aggressive.Georgia was led in the victory by Maddie Lobensteins 18 kills and Meghan Donovans double-double of 44 assists and 11 digs. A pair of Bulldogs in Cassidy Anderson and Amanda Dachs also had double-digit digs with 12 and 10, respectively.One of the key differences of the game was Georgias serving, as the Bulldogs put up a season-best 12 aces, led by Anderson with four while four other Bulldogs tabbed one ace or more.Weve talked all week about being really aggressive, so Im really proud of this group for coming out and doing that, Stemke said. I thought we were very aggressive from the service line. We had 12 aces, thats a nice showing at the service line. We were taking big swings and being smart when the ball wasnt there, but when the ball was there we were taking very big, aggressive swings.dddddddddddd I thought we did that very well tonight.After the visitors took the first set 25-19, Georgia bounced back in the second, as five kills from Lobenstein and a pair of aces from Anderson guided the Bulldogs to a 25-19 victory heading into the locker room.Out of the break, the teams had a tight third set, trading points for a majority of the frame. With South Carolina ahead 21-20, a kill by Lobenstein sparked a 4-0 run for Georgia to pull ahead 24-21 before winning the set 25-22. The momentum carried into the fourth, as two aces by Dachs began a big set for the Bulldogs, going up as much as 13 points. The Gamecocks closed in late, holding off match point four times, but Kendall Kazors ninth kill of the match sealed the win at 25-18.Georgia stays in Athens, but heads to Stegeman Coliseum for its next match on Sunday against LSU. The 1:30 p.m. ET contest is the teams annual Dig Pink match along with Superhero Day. Pink T-shirts will be given out with a donation while kids will receive a free cape. Admission is free. ' ' '
