Jennifer King Makes History, No New Players In Hall Of Fame


A year after Jennifer King was brought in as an intern working with running backs, the Washington Football Team hired King as a full-time assistant running backs coach, making her the first full-time Black female coach in NFL history.


For the ninth time in history, the Baseball Hall of Fame will not induct any new members for the 2021 class. Curt Schilling, Roger Clemens, and Barry Bonds received the top votes but did not reach the 75 percent threshold for induction. All three men have one more year of eligibility (players can only stay on the ballot for 10 years). Schilling aired his frustration with the HOF by publishing a letter asking to be removed from the 2022 ballot, saying “I will not participate in the final year of voting. I am requesting to be removed from the ballot. I’ll defer to the veterans committee and men whose opinions actually matter and who are in a position to actually judge a player. I don’t think I’m a hall of famer as I’ve often stated but if former players think I am then I’ll accept that with honor.”
