    JOHN PAUL Jones was the first well-known naval commander in the American Revolutionary War. He has often been referred to as the "Father of the American Navy". 2John Paul Jones was an American naval captainCredit: Getty Images - Getty Who was John Paul Jones? Born on July 6, 1747, John Paul Jones was raised in Scotland. His parents were married on November 29, 1733 in New Abbey. At the age of 13, Jones began sailing.

For several years, he worked aboard various merchant and slave ships, including the ships King George and Two Friends. He abandoned his post on the ship of Two Friends in Jamaica, and made his way back to Scotland where he found new work. In 1770, Jones had one of his crew flogged when he attempted to start a mutiny over wages. Weeks later, the crew member died, and Jones was arrested in connection...
    Green Bay Packers linebacker Za’Darius Smith wasn’t named one of the team’s seven captains, though Matt LaFleur says it’s nothing personal. Smith was named a Pro Bowler in 2020, and was a captain last season as well. However, he spent most of training camp recovering from an injury, which could very well keep him out Week 1 against the New Orleans Saints. This, LaFleur says, is what kept Smith from being named captain. “He’s still a leader on this football team,” LaFleur said. “I think sometimes when you’re going through everything that he’s gone through throughout training camp and the preseason, and you’re not around the guys quite as much, sometimes that is a byproduct of that.” Smith voiced his frustration on Twitter Thursday, with a vague tweet that clearly symbolized his unhappy nature. Wow???? — ZaDarius Smith (@zadariussmith) September 9, 2021 Packers: Za’Darius Smith frustrated with Matt LaFleurLaFleur was quick to buckle down, stating that to him, Smith is still a leader and captain.

    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Stefon Diggs no longer needs to worry about whether he’ll be accepted in Buffalo. If the record-setting production the receiver put up last year in his first season with the Bills wasn’t enough, whatever lingering apprehensions Diggs might have had were put to rest Tuesday, when he arrived for practice and learned he had been voted one of team’s eight captains.

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Rookie quarterback and No. 1 overall pick Trevor Lawrence was voted one of Jacksonville’s seven team captains for the season. Coach Urban Meyer unveiled the list during a team meeting Wednesday by showing a 3-minute video featuring friends and family members breaking the news to the newly crowned captains. Meyer then presented each player with a teal jersey that had a C sewn on the front. “It was great,” Lawrence said. “It’s a really cool feeling, especially as a younger guy just having that support from my teammates. Being named a starter and now a captain, nothing changes. Same expectation and now it’s time to go out there and win some games. “But I’m really excited. It’s definitely an honor. It’s a cool moment for me to be named a captain with those other guys, just a bunch of great guys in the locker room.

    Getty Chiefs LB Anthony Hitchens chases down Ravens WR Willie Snead in 2019. Having already packaged its 2021 first-round pick in a trade to Baltimore in exchange for Pro Bowl left tackle Orlando Brown Jr., the Kansas City Chiefs took a “best player available” approach to its top pick, selecting Missouri linebacker Nick Bolton in second round of April’s 2021 NFL draft. The choice came as a surprise to some in the football world considering the team spent last season’s second-rounder to bring in linebacker Willie Gay, also considered by some — such as The Associated Press’ Dave Skretta — to be a “gamble” of a pick. The reason for the Bolton addition, however, likely has more to do with the status of defensive captain Anthony Hitchens, who one prominent outlet believes could be on the post-June 1 chopping block.

    BOSTON (CBS) — Carles Gil has received a whole lot of praise following a dynamic performance in this weekend’s Revolution win over Atlanta FC. And the flattery for the Revs midfielder isn’t just coming from New England. Gil led the way for the Revolution in a 2-1 victory on Saturday, assisting on Brandon Bye’s goal before notching the game-winner himself on a penalty kick. Saturday’s game was the fifth time that Gil has recorded both a goal and an assist in the same game for New England.

    Mohamed Salah has received some relief from Liverpool's struggles - by being appointed Egypt's permanent captain. The striker is the Pharaohs' standout player, winning 70 caps and scoring 45 goals. 2Salah made his Egypt debut a decade ago and has been prolific for the national sideCredit: Reuters The Egyptian FA has traditionally handed the armband to the team's oldest player on any given matchday. However they have now opted to give 28-year-old Salah the honour on a long-term basis after showdown talks with team stalwarts. Coach Hossam El-Badry said: "We took this decision as the coming missions need more stability in the team, including the armband, ahead of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers." The EFA added: "The decision came after the manager informed the players who preceded Salah in seniority.  They supported the move." Salah is Egypt's second-highest scorer of all time. The former Chelsea and Roma striker has inspired Liverpool to Champions League and Premier League glory in the past two years. But despite 28 goals in 45 games, he is set to finish the season empty-handed - with Jurgen...
    Getty Isaiah Thomas #4 and Kelly Olynyk #41 of the Boston Celtics reacts against the Washington Wizards during Game Seven of the NBA Eastern Conference Semi-Finals. Danny Ainge pulled off two trades at Thursday’s deadline. Yet, there’s still work to be done as the President of Basketball Operations looks to reshape the Boston Celtics into title contenders on the fly. Two-time All-Star Andre Drummond has already been floated as a buyout candidate to help ease the vacancy left behind by Daniel Theis, who the C’s shipped off to Chicago. However, there may be a more ideal fit on the buyout market, one that better mimics Theis’ skillset, can add a scoring punch to Boston’s lineup and just so happens to have a preexisting relationship with the organization.

    Getty The Kansas City Chiefs line up ahead of Super Bowl LV. Currently sitting approximately $18 million over a projected $185 million team salary cap for next season, the Kansas City Chiefs will need to clear some cash from their books in the coming weeks leading up to free agency on March 17. Although $18 million sounds like a large number, the Chiefs’ front office can get under the new cap with a few larger moves involving some of their veteran players already on the roster. Many have speculated what that might look like, with Eric Fisher and Mitchell Schwartz — both over 30 years old and recovering from significant injuries — among the most popular cap casualty candidates for Kansas City this offseason. According to Pro Football Focus, a more unexpected move to watch for could involve the team moving on from one of its key defensive cogs: Anthony Hitchens.

    BARTOW (CBSMiami/AP) — A Florida man, recently named “Paramedic of the Year,” has been arrested for helping a supervisor steal COVID-19 vaccines meant for first responders, sheriff’s officials said.

    Joe Burrow has already proven himself to be a leader with the Bengals. The Cincinnati Bengals are looking for a fresh start in 2020. Andy Dalton is out and Joe Burrow is in as the new franchise quarterback. Burrow became a folk hero at LSU last season and that resulted in the Bengals drafting him with the No. 1 overall pick. Being taken so high usually means a player will start right away. But it is still normal for that player to take time to earn respect. Burrow has expedited that process as it has been revealed he is a captain for the Bengals in 2020.

    BOSTON (CBS) — In Foxboro, the man who filled the large, vacant shoes left by Tom Brady earned a spot as a team captain. Down south in Tampa Bay, Brady has earned the same honor for the Buccaneers. With mere days until the season kicks off, the Buccaneers named their team captains for 2020 on Tuesday, with the newcomer at QB of course being the biggest name of the bunch. Brady was named a captain in his first year in Tampa, along with wide receiver Mike Evans on offense. Linebackers Lavonte David and Devin White will be the team’s defensive captains, while punter Bradley Pinion and linebacker Kevin Minter will be the Bucs’ special teams captains. It’s not surprising for Brady to earn the C, and he’ll actually get to wear it for the first time in his career. (Since the NFL introduced the C on players’ jerseys, the Patriots have opted to not sport the letter on their captains’ chests.) The 43-year-old legendary QB has impressed his coaches and teammates from the moment he arrived in Florida and began...
