RIO DE JANEIRO -- You think James Cordens carpool karaoke has gathered some impressive celebs into his vehicle? Then consider the occupants in the car David Boudia drove to diving practice when he was a teenager. Donte Jackson Youth Jersey .A decade ago at age 17, Boudia would pick up 10-year-old Steele Johnson and 13-year-old Mary Beth Dunnichay and drive them 45 minutes or so to practice in Indiana. All three became Olympic divers -- Rio is Boudias third Games and Johnsons debut, while Dunnichay competed at Beijing in 2008. They wouldnt sing in the car, though. Instead, Boudia says he would turn the radio to a rap or hip-hop station.Steele was just a little giggly kid in the back seat, Boudia said. And I would turn up the music and try to be this punk kid that I was.Boudia was a bit of a different character back then. Now he is a husband, a father, a devoted Christian, an author, an Olympic multimedalist and a mentor to Johnson.And Monday, Boudia and Johnson twisted and flipped off the 10-meter platform with such unity that they earned silver medals in synchronized diving. It was the first Olympic medal for Johnson and the third for Boudia, who won gold and bronze at London in 2012. Said Boudia: Now Ive got all the colors.That the two did so is impressive given that death was once a near possibility in their lives. As he writes in his recently published book, Boudia used to drink and smoke and fell into such a deep depression in 2009 that he considered suicide. Johnson, meanwhile, smacked his head on the diving platform so hard seven years ago that he was nearly killed.I scalped myself, Johnson said. I needed 33 staples and had a tube in my head to drain the chlorine out. My coach got in the water and held my head together so I didnt bleed out.When something like that happens in your life -- a near-death experience -- you dont know where youre going to be going with your life. I could have stopped diving. I could have gone back to middle school and played different sports, like football or soccer. But the fact that God gave me the ability to stick with it and persevere and not have fear and anxiety with my life, Im so grateful.Christian faith is important to both divers, who have partnered in the event for the past four years. Prior to dives, they will say 4:6 for the Philippians bible verse that starts out: Do not be anxious about anything ...Just because Ive been to three Olympics and Ive won a gold medal doesnt mean Im not vulnerable to anxiety, Boudia said. And I felt a lot of pressure going into this week, almost to the point where it was giving me a lot of anxiety and I had to step away.Instead, he and Johnson stepped onto the platform and finished second, with 457.11 points, to China gold medalists Chen Aisen and Lin Yue (496.98). Tom Daley and Daniel Goodfellow of Great Britain took bronze (444.45).Boudia and Johnson say they dont pay attention to the scores while they are diving, so they didnt know what place they were in heading into their sixth and final dive. They simply bumped fists, told each other 4:6 and gave it their best. After the dive, they looked up at the scoreboard and saw that they had medaled.And after taking the podium to receive the silver medals, they spoke with reporters at the pool before being driven to the press center. As short as that drive was, it had to have been a much more emotional trip than those rides to practice in Indiana.Even if David didnt have an Olympic gold medal, hed be the perfect person to take me on this journey, said Johnson, who attends Purdue, as did his two carpool mates. Weve been partners over the last few years, and Ive been looking up to him since even before he made his first Olympics. ... Ive learned so much inside and outside of the pool from this guy -- about diving, about faith, about being a man -- that I wouldnt be where I am without this guy teaching me along the way.

American Matt Kuchar, ahead by two strokes with four to play and even with Scott with one to go, double-bogeyed the 18th after taking two shots to get out of a bunker. Greg Little Youth Jersey . Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, announced Wednesday that the team would assign Swedish forward Elias Lindholm to his nations team for the upcoming tournament. http:///...caffrey-blue-jersey/ . It might not have mattered. While the Dodgers are preparing for the playoffs, the Padres showed their future has promise behind two rookies. GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Its usually the father worried about the son getting hurt on the football field, but in the case of Green Bay Packers linebacker Joe Thomas Jr., its the other way around.On Saturday afternoon, when Joe Jr. is on the Packers team plane headed for Sundays game at Washington, his 55-year-old father is expected to make history and play in a college football game. If all goes as planned, Joe Sr. will take the field as the oldest walk-on running back for South Carolina State University, where Joe Jr. played from 2010 to 2013.I am a little worried, Joe Jr. said Friday at Lambeau Field. I know his body might be a little fragile. Im going to try to get the coach not to run him on one of those stretch plays. Im going to try to get him to run straight downhill.Joe Jr. has been with the Packers since 2015, yet hardly anyone around the team knew his father was enrolled at his alma mater, let alone on the football team, until a story appeared this week in Sports Illustrateds Campus Rush.Joe Sr. isnt even listed on the South Carolina State roster because hes still awaiting clearance from the NCAA, but Joe Jr. said the coaches there have assured him his father will pplay on Saturday against Savannah State, the second-to-last game of the season. Will Grier Womens Jersey. hats the word I got from the coach, Joe Jr. said. He texted me and said hes going to give him a carry tomorrow.Its senior night, and my grandma is going to walk him on the field.He said his father was an entrepreneur in South Carolina with a construction company and a training facility until the recession wiped out his business. Four years ago, his father decided to pursue a degree -- hes studying engineering -- and revive his athletic career. Joe Jr., whose cousin is former Patriots receiver Troy Brown, was all for it.Its been crazy for me, Joe Jr. said. I never thought youd see a 55-year-old running back. Im just proud of him. He made his mind up to do something and stuck to it.When asked whether his dad can actually play, Joe Jr. said: He always kept in good shape. He always works out. He doesnt drink or smoke, so his bodys in pretty good shape. If you read the article, it says when I was in high school, I raced him in our front yard and he beat me. ' ' '
