Te’o returns to Notre Dame, 1st public appearance in decade

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Former Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o made his first public appearance on campus in nearly a decade since it was disclosed he was the victim of a high-profile catfishing scheme involving a fake girlfriend. Te’o spoke briefly before Notre Dame’s game against California to a crowd in front of Touchdown Jesus, saying to it was good to be home. He attended Mass with the team at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart on campus and then walked with the players to the stadium. He told the enthusiastic fans the 0-2 Irish needed their support. Te’o later told the media he was pleasantly surprised by the response he received from the Netflix documentary “Untold: The Girlfriend Who Didn’t Exist.” He said the response has been positive.

Grealish, Son silence critics with their first EPL goals

Jack Grealish and Son Heung-min are two of the English Premier League’s most high-profile players and have been facing growing criticism for their failure to score this season. They have silenced the doubters. Grealish struck after 55 seconds to set Manchester City on its way to a 3-0 win at Wolverhampton and first place in the standings. Son came off the bench and produced a hat trick to round off Tottenham’s 6-2 victory over last-place Leicester. Defeat left manager Brendan Rodgers under serious pressure after six straight league defeats. The wins left City and Tottenham tied for points in first and second place, respectively.
