It would appear that Ryan Constant, the Thunder’s longtime and hard-hitting defenseman, has played his last game in Stockton. Constant was in the first round of cuts made by the new Stockton Heat of the AHL, who offered tryouts to Constant and Garet Hunt. Hunt survived Saturday’s releases. This is a tough one for local [...]

Friday Prep Football Predictions: Week 5

This week, we’ll see just how much the Lathrop football team has improved. With their 35-0 shellacking of East Union last week, the Spartans’ (3-1, 1-0 Valley Oak League) defensive numbers became even crazier. Lathrop is now allowing less than 10 points per game. Yet, Central Catholic (4-0, 1-0), a frightening competent offensive team, comes [...]

Helmet Stickers: Prep Football Week 4

The Lathrop football team is having a blast proving everybody wrong. Especially reporters like me!

Here’s a refresher: The Stockton fighter was suspended an astounding five years and fined $165,000 for his third failed test for marijuana, and this act of arrogance and overkill by the Nevada State Athletic Commission has turned the controversial Diaz into an unlikely martyr for MMA drug policy [...]

There’s a good chance Diaz will win his next fight — but it won’t be in a cage

Nick Diaz’s last fight resulted in a loss, and the decision was later reversed. His current battle with the Nevada State Athletic Commission is likely to end the same way. Diaz, Stockton’s best known and often controversial MMA star, was hit with a five-year suspension and a $165,000 fine for his third failed drugged test, [...]
