Like many at Toronto FC, Justin Morrow is looking forward not backwards. Rick Martin Jersey . While the view in TFCs rear mirror is littered with losses, Morrow sees a positive new beginning ahead of him in a Toronto shirt after four seasons in San Jose. Morrow started 33 games in 2012 for the Earthquakes, a number that dropped to 21 last season as the acquisition of English veteran Jordan Stewart cut into his playing time. "A lot of things happened last year, on a team level, on a personal level," Morrow said in an interview. "But what happened last year is in the past. Im ready to get into Toronto and make an impact. Im really excited about the (Toronto) move. What happened last year, Im really not looking back at it. Ill learn from it but Im moving forward." Asked if he got a fair shake last year, Morrow politely shut that topic of conversation down. The Earthquakes fired manager Frank Yallop in June after the Earthquakes stumbled to a 3-6-6 start. Fellow Canadian Mark Watson was promoted from assistant coach to take over. Stewart signed in July when the Quakes defence had allowed 32 goals in 20 games. Toronto acquired Morrow from San Jose in mid-December for allocation money, with manager Ryan Nelsen delighted to get the 26-year-old Cleveland native. The signings of England striker Jermain Defoe, U.S. international midfielder Michael Bradley, and Braziilian forward Gilberto may have garnered most of the recent headlines but Nelsen says the additions of Morrow, Canadian veteran Dwayne De Rosario and Brazilian Jackson are key to the Toronto reboot. Asked about Morrow, Nelsen launched into a shopping list of positives. "U.S. international, MLS all-star, a really good (salary) number, a great guy," he said. "His athleticism. I really like athletic fullbacks. He can play a number of positions as well, he can play centre back, he can play left midfield. Theres so much to like about Justin, especially his character. And hes hungry and he wants to win." Morrow, an all-star in 2012, calls himself an attacking fullback with pace and grit who likes to get involved in the offence. Understandably, Morrow welcomes the high-profile Toronto additions. "It just shows the clubs commitment to the future and that they want to be successful, which is a very important thing," he said. "When youre a football player you just want to be a part of a winning team, you want to be part of an organization thats trying to win. "Toronto FCs definitely showing that right now, so Im incredibly excited to be part of it all." With 71 regular-season appearances in MLS, Morrow also brings experience to Toronto. Only De Rosario (324), Jackson (91) and Jeremy Hall (112) have more on the Toronto roster. Ashtone Morgan, the 22-year-old Canadian international who will be Morrows champion at left back, has made 66 appearances. Toronto may also have a new starter in right fullback in English newcomer Bradley Orr. Morrow, whose 2013 salary was listed at US$139,560 by the MLS Players Union, has won one cap for the U.S., in a friendly 0-0 tie with Canada in January 2013. Morrow was also an unused substitute in World Cup qualifying matches against Costa Rica and Mexico last March. He was selected in the second round (28th overall) of the 2010 MLS SuperDraft. The five-foot-nine 165-pounder played collegiate soccer at Notre Dame, where he appeared in 89 games in four seasons mostly in left midfield. The Fighting Irish are coached by Bobby Clark, who coached Nelsen when he attended Stanford. In San Jose, Morrow was involved with reading programs for kids at the local library.

On top of pushing herself in the gym before each fight, the UFC womens bantamweight champion is never too far from the spotlight. In between bouts, Rousey has even taken to filling downtime with roles in films like The Expendables 3, Entourage and Fast & Furious 7. Going into her upcoming title defence against Canadian Alexis Davis in the co-main event of UFC 175 in Las Vegas Saturday, Rouseys once again running the press gauntlet. Though her packed timetable would be enough to make some fighters cringe, Rousey has a secret weapon working to her advantage. “I dont really do that well with downtime,” Rousey said during a recent media conference call. “So Im always in the gym regardless. A lot of fighters like to have their fight and then go chill out for a month or two. I get in trouble for sneaking back into the gym sometimes two days after a fight. Im just always in shape and always ready. I dont really like resting too much.” The cause of Rouseys desire to never stray too far from the gym is two-fold. Though there is nothing more satisfying than violently dispatching high-level challengers, this sensation is often fleeting for the California native. It doesnt take long before she once again gets the itch to compete. “The high after a win is what I enjoy the most, not sitting around and resting,” Rousey said. “I clearly only enjoy the rest while that high is still lingering. Its only so long that I can enjoy sitting on the couch and eating as much pie as I want before going to the gym and pressing repeat. I really need that big goal and obstacle to be excited about what Im doing.” On top of her competitive drive, Rousey simply knows that in order to stay on-point, she must fight frequently. She admitted to learning this the hard way, after a 10-month layoff prior to her December bout with Miesha Tate resulted in some unwanted ring rust. “We dont really have the luxury boxers have where, if the champion takes a long break off, they can have a tune-up fight to get ready for another big title fight,” Rousey said. “I just have title fights to keep from getting that ring rust.” Next on her hit list, Rousey aims to net her fourth consecutiive title defence by besting Davis. Zemgus Girgensons Jersey. Currently riding a five-fight win streak — three of which have come under the UFC banner — Davis has flown under the radar somewhat and could offer tough opposition wherever the fight may go. Rousey said she isnt taking the Port Colborne, Ont. native lightly. “Alexis is definitely the most well-rounded fighter Ive ever come up against,” Rousey said. “Shes one of the most experienced and her coaching (staff) is some of the best Ive ever come up against. “I think the greatest challenge is: whatever tools she does have, I know that shell use them in the most intelligent way possible. Being that she is well rounded, she has a lot of tools to pick from.” Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of the bout will play out once the action hits the mat, as Davis is arguably the most experienced ground fighter Rousey has ever been paired up against. As well as sporting a Muay Thai striking background, Davis holds black belts in both Brazilian jiu jitsu and Japanese Jujutsu. A 2008 Olympic judo bronze medalist, Rousey said she aims to represent her discipline and secure bragging rights by taking out Davis. “When I first started watching MMA that was one thing that pissed me off so much, everyone assumed that everything would beat judo,” Rousey began. “Everyone would be like, Any wrestler can beat a judo player. Any jiu jitsu player can beat a judo player. I was just really annoyed by the complete lack of respect that the sport got. I see that changing definitely. “You can definitely get away without having any ground game in judo, but if you are the type of person ... that can submit people in judo — I mean, youve only got a couple seconds to make that work. If youre the type of person that does actually make it work on the ground in judo, youre one of the best in the world. Im happy to really get the opportunity to showcase that.” Should she get the job done against Davis, Rousey said she plans on taking a much-needed break. However, it will remain to be seen whether she can enjoy her time away from the cage. “Id like to fight again on New Years and take a little break before then,” Rousey said, “but the UFC knows if theres an emergency or they need me, Ill step up on 24-hours notice.” Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
