It’s high noon...

Barry Sanders appears in NFL 100 commercial:

Sanders never played in a Super Bowl, but he made an appearance Sunday in the NFL 100 anniversary commercial that aired during halftime of Super Bowl 53.

The ad, titled “The 100-Year-Game,” celebrated the NFL’s 100th season gala with some of the best league players past and present. During the ad, Sanders picks up a golden football and takes off, spinning and juking players like he did with the Lions. As he pitches the ball away, the video cuts to Emmitt Smith who says, “damn, B. Y’all know I have more yards than he do.”

Sanders, who won the 1988 Heisman Trophy at Oklahoma State, rushed for 15,269 yards and 99 touchdowns and had 2,921 receiving yards and 10 touchdown receptions during his NFL career with the Lions. He’s a member of the College Football Hall of Fame (2003) and Pro Football Hall of Fame (2004).

Jeffrey Carroll has career night in Dallas:

Carroll scored 25 points and was 10-for-13 from beyond the arc for the South Bay Lakers — Los Angeles’ G-League affiliate — against the Texas Legends on Saturday in Frisco, Texas.

Carroll led the Lakers to an early 12-point lead after one, 34-22, as he scored 10 points in the first quarter alone. South Bay maintained their 12-point advantage, 65-53, going into the half as Andre Ingram and Scott Machado combined for 16 points off the bench in the second quarter. {South Bay Lakers}

Trace Ford is now a 4-star:

Trace Ford’s rating has now improved according to 247Sports. He has gone from a high three-star to a four-star. Here’s what they had to say about the defensive end commit.

Ford was a guy we loved all the way back in the spring as an edge rusher at The Opening Dallas regional. He tested well, put together good film and as a three-sport athlete that’s just getting started in his physical development, we believe he can be an elite edge rusher in the Big 12 {247Sports}

Rickie Fowler has touching moment with his grandfather:

After winning the Phoenix Open on Sunday, Fowler did something special. He was able to find his grandfather and give him the game ball. It’s an awesome after Fowler just missed out on his family getting to watch him win a tournament last year in Phoenix.
