Atlantic Records President of Promotion Andrea Ganis Looks Back, and Ahead, at Her Legendary Career

Click here to read the full article.

Few music industry vets approach the level of royalty in the radio world that Andrea Ganis, Variety‘s Hitbreaker of the Year, inhabits. She rose through the ranks at Atlantic Records until they had to create a new title for her: president of promotion.

“Atlantic was a powerhouse then as it is now, so I got to work legendary acts throughout my career,” says the New York native. “My early years began with the Rolling Stones, Bette Midler, Abba, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Genesis, Phil Collins, U2, Stevie Nicks and so many more, including songs that I forgot I promoted until I hear them in a store and point up and say, ‘I worked that record!’”

That streak has continued over the years, particularly with the remarkably consistent current regime of co-chairs Craig Kallman and Julie Greenwald, who have steered the ship since 2004.

Chiefs at Buccaneers score: Tyreek Hill eviscerates Tampa Bay with career-best outing, flirts with NFL records

This was a game pegged by many as a heavyweight bout between Patrick Mahomes and Tom Brady and it was, all things considered between the two in respect to their NFL careers, but it was anything but that in the first quarter — Tyreek Hill gutting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers en route to helping the Kansas City Chiefs land a decisive 27-24 victory at Raymond James Stadium. Mahomes used Hill as a filet knife all afternoon, gutting the Buccaneers secondary at every turn and propelling Hill to a career-best 269 receiving yards with three touchdowns on the day.

Brady and the Buccaneers attempted to fight back in the second quarter with the Chiefs threatening to make it a 24-point lead ahead of halftime from the Buccaneers’ 8-yard line, when defensive end Shaq Barrett took down Mahomes for a sack fumble recovered by William Gholston. That gave Brady all the momentum

Gateway’s Farren records 100th career goal

Before Courtney Farren played her first game for the Gateway Regional High School field hockey team, she set a goal to become the first player in program history to score 100 goals.

Four years later, the senior reached the milestone.

Farren tallied her 100th career goal on Monday during an 8-0 victory over Lindenwold.

“Ever since my freshman year, I thought I could do it,” Farren said during a phone interview. “It is just an unexplainable feeling to score 100 goals. I was so happy.”

Farren, who went into the game with 96 goals, put the Gators up 2-0 at halftime with a pair of goals, and then added a third early into the third quarter. A few minutes later, she hammered home a cross into the back of the cage for the historic goal.

All Farren remembers is her teammates in the circle hugging her and then watching the

Clemson’s Travis Etienne sets NCAA, ACC records in career game vs. BC

Travis Etienne may be one of the most underappreciated players in all of college football.

Clemson’s two-time ACC Player of the Year running back is often overshadowed by teammate Trevor Lawrence, the projected No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. But with Lawrence out for Saturday’s game against Boston College after testing positive for COVID-19, Etienne got the chance to be the hero.

Etienne made the most of it, racking up a career-high 264 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns in the top-ranked Tigers’ 34-28 comeback victory over the Eagles. He also made a little bit of history.

By hauling in a first-quarter touchdown catch from D.J. Uiagalelei — the first passing TD of the freshman QB’s career — Etienne set an NCAA record for most games with a touchdown with 42, breaking the mark set by San Diego State’s Donnel Pumphrey in 2016. Etienne was more than reliable

Clemson Tigers’ Travis Etienne sets records for career rushing yards, games with touchdown

Clemson running back Travis Etienne broke two records in Saturday’s 34-28 win over Boston College, setting marks for career rushing yards and games with a touchdown.

With his receiving touchdown in the first quarter, Etienne has now scored a touchdown in 42 games, breaking a tie with Donnel Pumphrey (2013-16) for most in FBS history.

Etienne then broke the ACC career rushing record when he went over 43 yards on the ground in the third quarter, passing NC State running back Ted Brown, who set the mark of 4,602 yards from 1975 to ’78.

“When it happened, it was an amazing feeling, but we were still down at that point, so we were looking at each other like man now we’ve got to win this thing,” Etienne said. “We can’t have this great record with an L, so we were focused on scoring and changing the game. So now I

Rookie Clyde Edwards-Helaire Records Career Bests in Win Over Buffalo

Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy told rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire one thing in preparation for the Buffalo Bills — finish it.

On Monday night he did just that, running for a career-high 161 yards on 26 attempts in a 26-17 win over the Bills, averaging 6.1 yards per carry. 

Edwards-Helaire’s spark began with a 31-yard carry, the longest of his rookie season, in the first quarter.

“Ultimately everybody knows when it comes to football it starts up front,”  Edwards-Helaire said.” The O-Line did their job — they made things move and they made things easier for me. Ultimately, it’s not just me. This is not a career day for just me, but the entire O-Line.”

The Chiefs entered their match up with the Bills down two starters from their 40-32 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders a week ago. Right guard Kelechi Osemele was replaced by Mike
