It's not official yet, but there are several reports out of Kansas City that the Chiefs have settled on interim coach Romeo Crennel as their permanent head coach. ESPN was the first to report that Crennel, who as previously 24-40 in four years as head coach at Cleveland, is set to be named as the full-time replacement for Todd Haley, who was fired after 13 games this year. Crennel went 2-1 as the interim coach, and most of the Chiefs players had thrown their support behind Crenel, who was the defensive coordinator for Kansas City under Haley.
Dorial Green-Beckham was considered the top high school prospect in the country before Saturday's Army All-American game in San Antonio. And the Springfield Hillcrest product lived up to the hype with a dazzling one-handed touchdown catch good for 79 yards to help his West team beat the East at the Alamodome. Green-Beckham would make just two catches for 88 yards, but the 79-yarder came on 3rd-and-38 with Dorial gently pushing off a defender while gathering the ball in with one hand, easily the most spectacular play of the game that earned him Co-MVP honors. Green-Beckham was also named the Army's Player of the Year at the high school all-star gathering, and certainly helped his already high profile in showing off his talents. While several high school seniors made thier college choices known at the game, Green-Beckham said he probably wouldn't make his decision final until signing day in February. He has mentioned that his five favorites are Arkansas, Oklahoma, Alabama, Texas and Mizzou.
