A Football Scoop on Coaches and Athletes
It’s the difference between breaking news and a “football scoop” that separates them. A scoop is a report that was released before other sources did. The difference between a scoop and a breaking news report is measured by the number of minutes between the two reports. Speculation, by contrast, is not news and is more subjective. Football Scoop has expanded its audience to include coaches and athletes. Its name derives from Dwight Freeney, who founded the site from 2002 to 2017.
Diamond Weaver is a college football coach
Diamond Weaver is a former defensive back who joined the UMaine coaching staff in April 2018. He will serve as an assistant defensive backs coach and will focus on the cornerback position. Before joining UMaine’s staff, Weaver played professionally for the Green Bay Blizzard in the Indoor Football League. He finished the season with the top pass defense in the IFL. Weaver’s coaching philosophy is to create an environment in which players feel comfortable and can develop their full potential.
Kevin Rogers is a Minnesota Vikings assistant
Former NFL quarterback Brett Favre, now a senior offensive assistant with the Cleveland Browns, played under Rogers as an assistant coach from 1989 to 2010. In that role, he helped the Vikings to win two NFC championships and the Super Bowl in 2009. Favre had his best statistical season in 2009, tossing for 4,202 yards and 33 touchdowns with seven interceptions. Rogers left the Vikings in 2011 to become offensive coordinator at Boston College. He then spent four seasons as the quarterbacks coach at Temple University.
Dwight Freeney (2002-17)
Dwight Freeney is a veteran defensive end for the Seattle Seahawks. He signed with the team in October to provide pass-rush help. While he recorded three sacks in his first two games, he has struggled to post any defensive stats in his last two. While Freeney has played his entire NFL career, the team did not make a roster move in order to make room for him on its active roster. Teams typically carry 53 players, including players who are eligible to play on injured reserve.
Dwight Freeney’s vision for Football Scoop
Dwight Freeney is a retired NFL defensive end. He was born on February 19, 1980 and played college football at Syracuse University, earning unanimous All-American honors. He went on to play in the NFL for 15 years, including four seasons with the Indianapolis Colts, where he won Super Bowl XLI against the Chicago Bears. Freeney has made seven Pro Bowls and starred on the defensive line.
Roussel brothers’ vision for Football Scoop
A decade ago, when the Roussel brothers bought Football Scoop, the site was nothing but industry gossip. It featured stories about mid-major football programs interviewing big-time coaches and special teams coordinators. Allen, meanwhile, was coaching in college and trying to balance the demands of recruiting and home visits. He also found time to update his site before going to bed. He would even keep his bosses posted on his daily schedule.
