Carli Lloyds path to coach James Galanis started with a humble plea from her dad: My daughter needs you. Rickey Henderson Padres Jersey .It was 2003 and Lloyd was having what could best be described as a career crisis. A talented midfielder who had excelled since she was 5, shed been cut from the under-21 U.S. national team. She decided to play out her senior year at Rutgers and then move on from soccer.Then she met Galanis. In the 13 years since, hes been her coach, mentor and even psychologist as shes risen to the top of the game.So after Lloyd scored her hat trick to lead the United States to victory last summer in the Womens World Cup final, she thanked Galanis. When she was named FIFA World Player of the Year in January, she thanked Galanis.Its his demeanor and his knowledge, and the way he says things. It was just this kind of instant respect that I had for him. He said to me: `This has to become the No. 1 thing in your life, and I was willing to do it, Lloyd said. And from that point on, from the minute we started together, everything that hes asked of me, I would do it every single day and Im still doing it today.Galanis is brutally honest about what he found when he first started working with Lloyd: a gifted player who had been coddled by coaches and who wasnt willing to put in the work to be great.She was just cruising by on her talent, he said. She was so much better than everyone else, but I knew that someday she was going to meet up with the rest of the Carli Lloyds, and because of her inconsistency and her lack of fitness she was in for rejection at some point.Galanis was a player himself back home in Australia. He came to the United States in 1997 and saw potential in training high-level soccer players for professional careers. In 2000, he founded the Universal Soccer Academy in Lumberton, New Jersey.James told my dad, `Look, Im going to train your daughter for free. Im going to get her on the national team. And all I ask in return is that she be as dedicated as she can be, Lloyd said. That was it.Galanis employs what he calls the Five Pillars: physical power, mental toughness, character, technical skills and tactical awareness.Both Lloyd and Galanis acknowledge the mental piece was one of the biggest obstacles, but she dutifully attacked the tasks he gave her.She sees that Im there for her. She sees that Im always working to make her better, Galanis said. And I see that shes fully dedicated and shes all in 110 percent with this. We both respect each other and support each other. So, yes, we know its special. And we knew it was special right from the beginning.Lloyds success wasnt magic; it was both a process and hard work, Galanis said. There were also setbacks: Lloyd was benched before the 2012 London Games by then-coach Pia Sundhage, who liked the combination of Shannon Boxx and Lauren Holiday in the central midfielder position. The demotion didnt last long, however, because Boxx was injured in the opener.Lloyd started the rest of the way and scored both goals in the gold-medal match against Japan at Wembley Stadium. Shes the only player to score winning goals in consecutive Olympic finals: At the Beijing Games in 2008, she scored in overtime for a 1-0 victory against Brazil.Her biggest moment came on the games biggest stage. She scored three goals in the first 16 minutes last summer in the World Cup final against Japan in Vancouver. Vice President Joe Biden was among the U.S. fans in attendance.One person who wasnt there was Galanis, who was vacationing with his family in Greece. Lloyds family stays home during big tournaments so she can focus, and likewise Galanis doesnt attend all of them, instead encouraging her from afar with texts and emails. Lloyd called him afterward and he asked what she was doing.Winning World Cups, he recalled her saying nonchalantly.Galanis has worked with other national team players, including goalkeeper Hope Solo and former defender Heather Mitts. More recently he has worked with Yoreli Rincon, a promising 22-year-old midfielder who plays for the Colombia national team.But none has been a full-time job, except Lloyd.After a pair of exhibition matches this month, Lloyd and the rest of the U.S. national team heads team to Brazil for the Olympics, opening with a game against New Zealand on Aug. 3.The United States has the last three gold medals in the sport. No team has won a World Cup then the Olympics in consecutive years.After the Rio Games, Lloyd will marry her high school sweetheart, Brian Hollins. And her book, When Nobody Was Watching: My Hard-Fought Journey to the Top of the Soccer World, which details her relationship with Galanis, is set for release at the end of September.She loves it when something big is sitting there waiting to be taken -- she wants it to be hers, Galanis said. Other people fold under pressure. Carli thrives under pressure. James Shields Jersey .C. -- Calgarys Kevin Koe did it the hard way again. Alexei Ramirez Padres Jersey . Tuesdays surgery at Atlantas Piedmont Hospital was performed by Dr. Xavier Duralde and Hawks team physician Dr. Michael Bernot. http://www.baseballpadresofficial.com/cory-spangenberg-jersey-c-23/ . They were putting most of their energy into a record-setting offensive display. The Toronto Raptors have officially filed a protest with the league office to challenge the controversial ending of their loss Sunday night at Sacramento.The Raptors, despite their seemingly remote hopes of a ruling in their favor, formally lodged their protest Tuesday night and will have five business days to present evidence to the NBA, after which the league will have five days to make a ruling.The Raptors went ahead with the protest, at a cost of $10,000, even after the league office released a statement Tuesday reiterating that the ruling Sunday night made by the leagues replay center in Secaucus, New Jersey, was the correct call.Theyre in contact with the league office and they will decide what direction to go into with that, Raptors coach Dwane Casey said Wednesday before his team faced the Houston Rockets. I know Ive gotten a lot of calls from coaches around the league.Following a timeout with 2.4 seconds to go in regulation and the Raptors trailing by three points at the Kings new Golden 1 Center, Torontos Terrence Ross took control of a pass deflected by Sacramentos DeMarcus Cousins, took two dribbles and sank a 33-footer that appeared to force overtime until a replay review determined that the elapsed play took 2.5 seconds, ruling out Ross shot.When Terrence caught the ball near half court, he knew he only had a couple of seconds to shoot the ball before time expired, but he also knew he had a clock above the backboard to glance up at as time winded down, Raptors president Masai Ujiri told the Toronto Star. Unfortunately, the clock he needed to look at was in New Jersey.In his statement Tuesday, NBA president of league operations Byron Spruell said: After review at the league office, we have concluded that the end of the game was officiated correctly by NBA rules. We reviewed all aspects of the final 27.4 seconds and below is a summary of our evaluation.Toronto inbounded the ball with 2.4 seconds remaining in the game, and the clock did not start when the pass was deflected by Sacramentos DeMarcus Cousins. Per the NBAs precision timming system, the clock can be started by either the referees or the clock operator. Randy Jones Jersey. The referees noticed the clock malfunction immediately which triggered a replay review under rule 13.1.a.5, which states that a review must occur if a play concludes (i) with no time remaining on the clock (0:00) at the end of any period or (ii) at a point when the game officials believe that actual time may have expired in any period; and the officials are reasonably certain that the game clock malfunctioned during the play.Per rule 13.2.e.1, the Replay Center was then tasked with determining the proper time (if any) on the game clock following the clock malfunction by determining how much time on the game clock actually expired. To determine how much time actually expired, Replay Center referee Zach Zarba used a digital timer on the Replay Center screen. The determination was that 2.5 seconds expired, thus negating the basket.We also reviewed the question surrounding the time left on the clock for Sacramentos final possession. That possession started with 26.4 seconds remaining on the game clock since that is when Cousins secured possession of the rebound after a missed free throw. The subsequent shot clock violation on the Kings possession therefore left 2.4 seconds remaining in the game.Spruells statement was the second from the league office since Sunday night that the referees on the floor and the officials in charge of the replay review made the right calls. The fact that there has only been one successful protest in the NBA over the last 33 years, dating to the 1982-83 season, would appear to further dampen the Raptors hopes.In the event that the Raptors do manage to change the leagues mind, its unclear when the final 2.4 seconds of the game could be replayed, since Toronto and Sacramento have already played twice this month, thus completing the teams season series.ESPNs Calvin Watkins contributed to this report.
