This was the 32nd anniversary of the award being presented to deserving bankers who exemplify real and tangible dedication to the communities in which they serve. Brown is President and CEO at The Bank of Bennington and has been with the bank for 15 years, serving as President and CEO for eight of those years. During that time, he consistently demonstrated a strong desire to make our community a better place to work, live and play. His service over the years has included board participation with Southern Vermont Medical Center and The Bennington Museum, Rotary Club, Southern Vermont College, Vermont Banker’s association, Riley Rink and Bennington County Industrial Corporation. Additionally, Jim coaches youth baseball and hockey.Most recently, Jim in collaboration with other civic minded community leaders, founded Bennington Redevelopment Group LLC. This is a transformative project that will change the story of Bennington. Shannon McLenithan, Vice President of Residential Lending nominated Jim for the award saying, “The Bank of Bennington is fortunate to have a leader that is an integral part of the community collaborating with key players within the community to envision a future, identify paths to success and carry out that vision. Jim is a perfect example of the passion and commitment of a genuine community banker.””We went from Death Valley to Mount Everest, just like that,” said Hoosick Falls coach Tom Husser. “We finally were able to find the back of the net in those last few minutes and I’m really happy to see that the girls fought to the end and didn’t give up.”For over the first 70 minutes of the game, the Panthers had a hard time finding the net and even a harder time getting the ball past Cambridge goalkeeper Victoria Dupuis.The junior was all over the place for the Indians in net, racking up 10 saves going into the last ten minutes of the game.
Gary Barnidge Jersey in the eight games that Barnidge played with McCown at starting last season, he averaged 12.3 fantasy points per game. The top tight end in the league, Rob Gronkowski, averaged only 11.7 points per game over the course of the season. Other numbers bear out the trend as well. Barnidge was targeted on nearly a quarter of his routes and gained 14.5 yards per catch with McCown playing.Cleveland.com’s Mary Kay Cabot also anticipates a boost, saying she expects Barnidge to “return to his Pro Bowl form” with McCown quarterbacking. As another potential benefit, she suggests that McCown’s presence could help the development of center Cameron Erving, a 2015 first-round draftee who has struggled a bit.As far as Barnidge’s prospects, his matchup this weekend looks promising. He did well against the Baltimore Ravens last year, catching 15-of-21 targets for 230 yards and a touchdown in two games, both of which were started by McCown (McCown left the second game in the fourth quarter with a broken collarbone). Whether he can produce another season like 2015 remains to be seen, but perhaps he’ll get back on track this Sunday.Barnidge downplayed the idea a bit on Wednesday, and he had two dropped passes for the first time he could remember in the opener. There is also some concern he had a career year last season and can’t match it. That being said, McCown should be much more adept at getting him the ball than Griffin.Gabbert started each of the first three preseason games, leading the 49ers offense to touchdowns on three of the eight possessions he played. He finished 12-of-22 for 146 yards with a touchdown for a passer rating of 90.3. He also rushed for 33 yards on five carries.Because of the injury issues Kaepernick has dealt with, Gabbert has taken the vast majority of the first-team reps in Kelly’s offense since he arrived in January. Gabbert handled most of the snaps during the offseason Cheap Jerseys program as Kaepernick recovered from knee, shoulder and thumb injuries. He did the same during training camp after the aforementioned shoulder tightness prevented Kaepernick from throwing in the first two preseason games and about a week and a half of practice. Gabbert played 43 snaps in his three preseason appearances. It’s probably overstating it to say Gabbert has a complete grasp of Kelly’s offense, but he’s certainly had more chances to execute it than Kaepernick.
Robert Griffin III Jersey If you’re looking for officially licensed RG3 jerseys, you’ve come to the right place. NFLShop.com is your trusted authority on all official Robert Griffin III jerseys, apparel, and merchandise!Robert Griffin III isn’t going all in on a prediction for when he will return from the shoulder injury that landed him on the injured reserve list.Griffin took criticism for failing to slide on the play, which occurred late in the Cleveland Browns’ loss to the Philadelphia Eagles and on which his shoulder bore the brunt of the impact.Griffin was outwardly philosophical about the injury even though he won’t play before Week 10 at the earliest.“It’s more if the doctors say I’m good, and the trainers say I’m good, and my body feels good — then [returning] is the goal,” Griffin said. “It’s not something where I’m saying: ‘All bets are off, it doesn’t matter what they say, I’m going back out there.’A former Ohio mayor indicted on rape charges reportedly confessed that he had sex with a child — a young girl, who, the man claimed, was a willing participant.Court records filed Monday describe conversations in which Richard Keenan — who briefly served as the mayor of Hubbard — talked to several people, including his wife and a pastor, about alleged assaults that occurred over the course of two years, beginning in 2013, when the girl was 4.According to court documents filed by Trumbull County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Gabriel Wildman, Keenan’s wife confronted him after the girl talked about the alleged abuse.Keenan was later admitted to Trumbull Memorial Hospital’s psychiatric ward in Warren, cheap jerseys He said during group discussions there that he had been sexually abusing a child for two years, according to court records.He was released from the hospital and admitted to the River Bend Treatment Center, where he told an intake social worker that he was feeling suicidal because of his actions and that the girl willingly participated in the sex acts, according to court records.Keenan talked in more detail with a local pastor about the alleged abuse, saying it began when the child walked in on him in the bathroom, according to court records. It’s unclear how he and the child knew each other.At the time, Keenan said he had dedicated his life to Christ — a decision that he said changed his life.
Joe Thomas Jersey You can score that touchdown in style when you get this Joe Thomas Cleveland Browns Elite jersey from Nike. It features all the things you’d find on an official jersey, so you will get a truly authentic experience when you put it on.On the heels of the Browns’ 29-10 season-opening loss to the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field last Sunday, McCown takes over an offense set to play the Baltimore Ravens at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland Sunday, and for the most-tenured player in the locker room, that’s a good thing.“It is a huge advantage for us because he was a starter last year,” nine-time Pro Bowl left tackle Joe Thomas said of McCown. “We are probably in the best situation of any team to be able to handle the backup quarterback coming in and being the starter for a significant amount of time.You can see in preseason how badly other teams wanted Josh because of the trade rumors because of his experience as a starter. You do not find guys like that on very many rosters.in his first season with the Browns, McCown won the starting job out of training camp, but was hampered by injuries for the bulk of the year.On the Browns’ very first drive of the 2015 season, McCown suffered a concussion while lunging for the end zone, and missed the following game. Later in the year, he played through shoulder and rib issues before succumbing to a broken collarbone in a Monday Night Football loss to the Ravens in late November.In Thomas’ opinion, McCown is the perfect player to have at the helm of the Browns’ offense, especially considering the fact that the team has just two proven pass catchers, tight end Gary Barnidge and wide receiver Andrew Hawkins, and several players with three years or less of NFL experience.The good and bad about having rookies on this team across the board is they have a lot to learn, but we expect a lot of growth throughout the season,” Thomas said. cheap jerseys “As they gain experience and as they have more practices in the system, we expect them to get significantly better. A team that is full of veterans is more polished at the beginning of the season, and they do not have as much room to grow.
Joe Haden Jersey Rep your Cleveland Browns in a brand new way with this Joe Haden Color Rush Limited Jersey from Nike! Crisp graphics celebrate a special moment for your favorite team. Wentz had only eight days to prepare as the starting quarterback. Until the Eagles traded Sam Bradford to the Vikings, the plan reportedly was to make him inactive for the season and allow him to learn from the sideline. There’s a great analogy to that, and that’s Ben Roethlisberger. When he was a rookie, when he came into the league, he was a third-string quarterback,” Theismann said. “In preseason, the other two quarterbacks got hurt and, all of a sudden, Ben was in a similar role to what Carson was in. I thought he really applied himself so well in the OTAs, the minicamps and training camp, I thought Doug felt very comfortable making the deal for Sam and moving him on. They understand the learning process.I felt like he handled the entire game very, very well. He’s a young guy with talent. The Eagles gave up an awful lot for the opportunity to be able to have him. What you saw was a young man feeling his way into the NFL. I thought Doug did a terrific job offensively, giving him an opportunity to make the throws he feels comfortable with, cheap jerseys getting his feet wet and getting him the confidence to be able to go out, throw the ball around and make plays. I was impressed by his accuracy. I thought he threw the ball around well from an accuracy standpoint.Nonetheless, Wentz withstood the pressure and was 8-for-8 against the blitz and made several elite throws, including a 39-yard touchdown strike to wide receiver Nelson Agholor, who was blanketed in coverage by Haden.
Vontaze Burfict Jersey With the Pittsburgh Steelers preparing for their home opener against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, we bring you all the details you need to keep up with the action this weekend.Steelers currently lead the series 58-35, including two playoffs victories. In the Mike Tomlin era, Pittsburgh are 14-5 overall against Cincinnati and 6-3 at home. This encounter will not feature the league’s most unpopular player, in the eyes of Steeler Nation at least, as linebacker Vontaze Burfict serves a three-game suspension for his behaviour the last time these two teams met. Steeler fans will still have to endure Adam “Pacman” Jones, however, after he was re-signed by the team in the offseason and inexplicably made a captain.Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week Wednesday following a 171-yard, two-touchdown performance in the Steelers’ 38-16 win over the Washington Redskins. His chief competition probably came from his own team.In all seriousness, even at 33 years old, Willaims is showing no signs of slowing down. He maintains exceptional conditioning and runs like a much younger man. If you thought that Williams didn’t still have some moves, just check out this touchdown run.Let’s hope this is just the first of many such honors Steelers’ players get this season. With an offense this potent, you can bet that Williams or one of the other star players will be in the mix to earn this award pretty much every week.Ward is one of the best, if not the best possession receiver to ever play in the NFL. Pittsburgh drafted him out of the University of Georgia in 1998. The former third-round pick found his way to the starting lineup by his second season and never looked back. Known for his huge smile and gregarious nature on the field, he was not only a feared receiver but a crippling blocker. Many of his best plays will never show up in a box score because he sacrificed his own body to let a teammate make a play.Cheap Jerseys The rule read: “A rushing defender is prohibited from forcibly hitting in the knee area or below a passer who has one or both feet on the ground, even if the initial contact is above the knee. It is not a foul if the defender is blocked (or fouled) into the passer and has no opportunity to avoid him.”

I’m excited to be able to give away 2 tickets to our next home game vs. the Broncos on December 22nd, a Monday Night game! Every order from my store gets you entered in to win* Show off your Bengal pride and check out my gear cheap jerseys.The Bengals-Steelers matchups have become knockdown, drag-out fights each time they play. There have been as many flags, penalties and fines lately as there have been brutal hits.But the repercussions of the rivalry have extended beyond the AFC North division. It has actually changed the NFL, too.A number of rule changes have been made in the past decade as a direct or indirect result of something that happened in a Bengals-Steelers game.2006 season: The “Carson Palmer rule” Cheap jerseys It’s a common misconception that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was the reason the NFL changed the rules to protect quarterbacks’ knees. In fact, one of those rules is often referred to as the “Tom Brady rule.” True, the NFL clarified the language in 2009 of part of the rule after Brady went down with a torn ACL at the beginning of the 2008 season. The injury came after Chiefs safety Bernard Pollard dove at Brady’s left knee.Palmer, then with the Bengals, was only a few plays into the AFC wild-card game in January 2006, when Steelers defensive end Kimo von Oelhoffen rolled into his left leg after Palmer completed a pass to Chris Henry. Palmer suffered a gruesome knee injury that ended his season and the Bengals’ hopes of a playoff win.
Cincinnati Bengals fan with this Nike Game Football jersey! You can boast your team spirit while wearing this Cincinnati Bengals jersey. It features printed Cincinnati Bengals and Tyler Eifert graphics, showing the world who you cheer for. NFL Shop is your source for officially licensed Cincinnati Bengals gear.The Bengals have gotten strong defensive play the past few seasons, but this win streak has shown the offense may be catching up with the defense.The first day out here I had the little jitterbugs,” the Cincinnati Bengals Jersey linebacker said late Thursday. “[But] I felt good and my injury feels good. Everyone else had three days ahead of me with pads and everything, so the first day I put pads on I felt a little heavy. But you just have to get used to it.Green and Gresham have done nothing to fall out of favor in Cincinnati. Despite fewer targets, Green has gained 100 yards in a career-high three straight games. Gresham has caught 72.3 percent of his targets this season, best among the Bengals’ wide receivers and tight ends. Burfict was back in the Bengals’ practice lineup after missing the start of training camp with an undisclosed injury that landed him on Cincinnati’s active/non-football injury list just before camp started. He came off that list early Thursday.Last month, coach Marvin Lewis said he has no plans to play Burfict in preseason games. Much of the coach’s reasoning stems from the fact that he believes he knows what Burfict can do on the field, and he also wants to keep Burfict as healthy as possible ahead of his looming three-game suspension.Burfict will miss the first three games of the season due to his sometimes overly aggressive playing style. A hit to the head of Steelers receiver Antonio Brown Jersey in the Bengals’ playoff loss to Pittsburgh in January was the tipping point for the league.
Cheap Jerseys The Cleveland Browns are a professional American football team based in Cleveland, Ohio. The Browns compete in the National Football League as a member club of the American Football Conference North division. The Browns play their home games at FirstEnergy Stadium, with administrative offices and training facilities in Berea, Ohio. The Browns’ official colors are brown, orange and white. They are unique among the 32 member franchises of the NFL in that they do not have a helmet logo and are the only team named after a former coach.
Browns Jerseys The Bengals were founded in 1966 as a member of the American Football League (AFL) by former Cleveland Browns head coach Paul Brown. Brown was the Bengals’ head coach from their inception to 1975. After being dismissed as the Browns’ head coach by Art Modell (who had purchased majority interest in the team in 1961) in January 1963, Brown had shown interest in establishing another NFL franchise in Ohio and looked at both Cincinnati and Columbus. He ultimately chose the former when a deal between the city, Hamilton County, and Major League Baseball’s Cincinnati Reds (who were seeking a replacement for the obsolete Crosley Field) was struck that resulted in an agreement to build a multipurpose stadium which could host both baseball and football games. Due to the impending merger of the AFL and the NFL, which was scheduled to take full effect in the 1970 season, Brown agreed to join the AFL as its tenth and final franchise. The Bengals, like the other former AFL teams, were assigned to the AFC following the merger. Cincinnati was also selected because, like their neighbors the Reds, they could draw from several large neighboring cities (Louisville and Lexington, Kentucky; Columbus, Dayton, and Springfield, Ohio; and Indianapolis, Indiana) that are all no more than 110 miles (180 km) away from downtown Cincinnati.
The Bengals won the AFC championship in 1981 and 1988, but lost Super Bowls XVI and XXIII to the San Francisco 49ers. After Paul Brown’s death in 1991, controlling interest in the team was inherited by his son, Mike Brown. In 2011, Brown purchased shares of the team owned by the estate of co-founder Austin Knowlton and is now the majority owner of the Bengals franchise.
