Jawaun Wynn 2015 URI Graduating Senior
I love football. I started at the age of 7. I love the thrill that it gives me. I love the nature of the game, where you come together with people. I just really like the competitive nature of the game. I was a transfer from Rutgers University. I transferred because the coaches wanted to change my position, from wide receiver to defensive end. My defensive end coach had contacted the head coach at Rhode Island said he was a nice guy, recommended me to him. So I transferred to URI.
I'm going to graduate with a degree in criminology. I'm actually taking prerequisites to get into PA school as well. PA is Physician Assistant School. I like considering it Physician Associate. I don't like being considered an assistant. Ever since from a young age, I always wanted to help people. I love science, I love how the body works. Also at the age of 15 I was diagnosed with hypertension. So I was in a hospital back and forth. And as I was in the hospital, I was able to talk to different health professionals.
And learn what they do. I actually love what they do. What I like best about being at URI is the support that I have from my advisors, coaches, students that are here. Everybody is really nice. They help me out if I need any help. I will actually miss one of my best friends, Kolt Peavey because he's staying, he has one semester left. I'm really going to miss my friends here, my other friends on the team, etc. So I'm really going to miss that. I was honored as the Scholar Athlete of the week,.
I was honored on November 22nd. At the men's basketball game at half time. That was a very good moment for me. My parents drove up for that. Presenter Without further ado, I'd like to present the Estes Benson Award to Jawaun Wynn. The Benson Award, I receive this because I had the highest GPA out of black male seniors for 2014. Playing football, you have to know every detail of every game. A lot of people take that for granted. They actually think that it's easy to just run around.
Heart Problems Could Sideline Linemen
I'm Shelby Cullinan with today's health news. Being an athlete doesn't always protect you from heart problems. A new study found that college football linemen may have a raised risk of heart problems raised blood pressure and changes in heart structure, specifically compared to other players. The study team studied 87 college freshman football players 30 linemen and 57 nonlinemen for changes in heart health after one football season. At the beginning of that season, none of the players had high blood pressure. Fast forward to the end of the season Nine of the linemen had high blood pressure, as well.
Top 5 Foods to Increase Athletic Performance
Hey guys, Dr. Axe here, founder of DrAxe and doctor of functional medicine. What I want to share with you today are foods that can help increase your athletic performance. Also these foods can help you burn fat, get lean, really get in the best shape of your life. And so, the top five foods you should be consuming are going to help hydration, recovery, muscle building, and overall increase your energy levels. And the first food you should add in to increase athletic performance is coconut, especially coconut oil. Coconut oil contains mediumchain triglycerides and your body can actually not.
Just burn sugar for energy but coconut, your body can burn fat for energy. And that's why triathletes today, marathon runners, they're starting to consume more coconut oil. So start using coconut oil in your cooking and coconut milk in your smoothies. The second superfood that can increase athletic performance are chia seeds. Chia seeds were known by Aztec warriors as warrior's food or runner's food. And in fact, the Aztec warriors carried a little pouch on their side, and they would do a tablespoon of chia. They said one tablespoon of chia seeds was worth a day's energy. And there's also great studies out.
Of the Journal of Strength and Conditioning on this. Add one tablespoon of chia seeds to a morning smoothie or you can also do some chia with some honey and kind of eat as a snack between workouts. The third superfood you should consume that's going to help increase athletic performance and recovery is getting a good quality protein, especially a whey or collagen protein. Protein is so important for building muscle and burning fat and it is vital for recovery. Most athletes surprisingly do not get enough protein. So adding a good quality, natural, organic type.
Of whey protein, not one that has all those artificial sweeteners in it, a good natural protein powder is crucial as well. As well as getting plenty of good quality protein from things like grassfed beef, organic chicken and turkey. The next superfood you need to be getting in to increase athletic performance are more antioxidantrich berries. Blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, getting more berries in your diet, they contain the highest levels of antioxidants. Antioxidants absolutely help with cellular regeneration, healing muscular tissue, and recovery after exercise. The fifth superfood you've got to be getting to increase athletic performance is coconut.
Water running Extra miles or great rehabilitation tool!
Arms bent at about 90 degrees, hands lightly cupped. Water running will force you to use arms in the most efficient pattern. Breath normally! Stand tall, don't lean forward. Legs should closely mimic how you run avoid high knee lifting! You want to bring legs down under your center of gravity, engage water with your foot and push the water behind you. If you are using your legs correctly you will feel your glutes, calves, quads and hamstrings engage. You may be a little sore afterwards if you are doing this correctly.
What Cardiac Evaluation Should Young Athletes Receive
This is a very controversial topic. Obviously the impact to a family who has lost a child is tremendous. However, on the other side the incidence of this type of event is quite rare estimated at around 1 in 100,000 sports participants of school age Screening examinations in histories have not been typically thought to be useful in detecting a called heart disease. However, the electrocardiogram has not shown a significant difference in many populations in terms of increasing that yield. Some of the conflicting information includes reports from Italy that suggested the incidence.
Of sudden death dropped dramatically after instituting a mandatory screening process. However, that final rate that they achieved was really only about the same rate as is present here in the United State already. In addition to subsequent study from Israel showed that there was no improvement in mortality after institution of a screening programme. The additional burden of running down the abnormal findings that so called false positives, is also something to deal with. It is a tremendous expense particularly for a rare disease. Many children do not have the resources to undergo this testing, and will opt not to do the recommended power.
Additional testing that has been recommended includes the echocardiogram. This is a test where an image is made of the heart particularly to look for abnormal thickening of the valve muscle known as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Other conditions such as a poorly working heart muscle known as cardiomyopathy or abnormal valve structures and occasionally abnormal coronary arteries can be detected. However, this study is done in a screening fashion rather quickly in a period of about five minutes as opposed to a complete study which might take up to 45 minutes. The exclusion of coronary artery anomalies is not possible in the screening test, and.
These accounts were at the second leading cause of sudden death in young athletes. There are a number of other conditions that even with the complete echocardiogram and a very thorough electrocardiogram cannot be detected because they do not manifest on either of these tests. Such that the screening may give a fall sense of security to the participant, and that there is no heart disease whatsoever. Clearly, if there is a family history suggestive of heart disease that may be inherited, or there are warning signs or symptoms, and a list of these has been provided by the American.
