DURHAM, N. Marcus Johansson Jersey .C. -- Shortly after quarterback Daniel Jones arrived on Dukes campus last year, his teammates nicknamed him the Future.For the redshirt freshman, the future is now.A season-ending injury setback to starter Thomas Sirk makes Jones the first Duke freshman QB to start an opener since 1997, and just the fourth in 65 years, when he leads the Blue Devils against North Carolina Central on Saturday night.Jones wants to make the most of the opportunity he received because of mentor was hurt.I was just heartbroken for him, being such a hard-working guy that I have so much respect for, Jones said Tuesday of Sirk. That was tough to see him go down. Hes been a great resource for me since Ive been here. ... Im excited to get out there and play.The Blue Devils are putting their offense in the hands of the soft-spoken Jones, a late addition to their 2015 recruiting class from Charlotte who figured to be headed to Princeton or another Ivy League schools before Duke eventually showed interest.At 6-foot-5, Jones is an inch taller than Sirk and while he has the frame of a pocket passer, coach David Cutcliffe said he is going to be a threat to run the football.Its a job that Daniels won right now, Cutcliffe said.Jones took most of the first-team snaps during preseason practice, and threw two touchdown passes during a late scrimmage, while Sirk -- who led the team in rushing and passing last year and was the co-MVP of the Pinstripe Bowl victory over Indiana -- worked on rehabbing the Achilles tendon he tore in February.Reps are huge things when youre playing quarterback, seeing the defense, and you need to play the game to get better at it, Jones said. That was huge for me.The question about whether Sirk would make it back for the opener was answered decisively -- but not the way Duke would prefer -- last week when he partially tore that same tendon during a practice.Now comes the latest test of Dukes next-man-up philosophy, with Jones taking over and trying to live up to the nickname he picked up last year while running the scout team. He brushed off questions about that name Tuesday with an embarrassed laugh.Hes a pretty good quarterback -- weve known that since he got here, safety DeVon Edwards said. A lot of guys called him the Future ... from the very beginning. Blake Coleman Jersey .

Melbourne City have completed their squad for the A-League season ahead, having landed Argentinian winger Nicolas Colazo from Boca Juniors.Colazo, 26, trained with City for the first time on Tuesday morning at AAMI Park ahead but wont play in the clubs FFA Cup quarter-final with Western Sydney on Wednesday night.City have yet to complete the paperwork surrounding the left-sided players marquee move from Boca Juniors, which wraps up coach John van t Schips off-season shopping.We are finished with our signings, which I am very happy with. We go forward, the Dutchman said.Colazo landed in Melbourne on Monday and will contend for round one of the A-League.He had the opportunity and liked the opportunity to join us in this project. Were happy, van t Schip said.Hes a player that can play up front, midfield and even in defence ... technically strong and a good left foot.Colazo joins countryman Fernando Brandan, Socceroos great Tim Cahill, Danish international Michael Jakobsen and home-grown talents Bruce Kamau, Luke Brattan and Neil Kilkenny as Citys major signings.And van t Schip says the rest will all be in the frame to face the Wanderers, a match he labelled as a great test.Its very important to see where we are only a few weeks before the A-Leaggue starts, he said. Adidas Ray Shero Jersey. Its a cup game and we want to win.Local fans should see Cahill and Jakobsen in home debuts, but van t Schip was coy on whether they would start, particularly given Cahills success as a Socceroos super-sub against United Arab Emirates a fortnight ago.He had a big impact in the short time he came on, he said.(Cahill) looks good, he feels good and hes ready to play.(Jakobsens) in a good condition because he came out of a league playing in Norway.Hes a player we want to have normally in the starting line-up.He has a very good pedigree, a good defender, a good age. We expect a lot from him.Against the Wanderers, City are coming off back-to-back friendly beltings to Wellington and Newcastle.In a 4-1 loss to the Phoenix, the coach blamed a heavy training load in Sundays 4-0 loss to the Jets, van t Schip fielded a youth side.The biggest loss of the last fortnight was Corey Gameiro, who ruptured an ACL for the third time in as many years while training in Townsville.Its very disappointing, he sad.For him the most. Its tough. Its mentally very hard.Were trying to do what we can to support him.
