HARRISON, N.J. (AP) — The New York Red Bulls have signed former Philadelphia Union midfielder Marcus Epps.
The MLS team announced the signing on Wednesday. Epps was selected by New York in the MLS Waiver Draft in December.
Epps played in 32 games for the Union over the past two seasons with three goals and three assists. The 23-year-old played four years at the University of South Florida.
SPRINGDALE, Ark. (AP) — Clemson wide receiver Hunter Renfrow has won the Burlsworth Trophy, which goes to the top college football who began his career as a walk-on.
Renfrow was chosen over finalists California running back Patrick Laird and Wyoming safety Marcus Epps.
FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — Freshman Sean Chambers had his first career passing and rushing touchdowns and Wyoming eased past Colorado State 34-21 on Friday night in the Border War.
Wyoming scored 21 unanswered points in the third quarter — with two touchdowns in less than 30 seconds — for a 24-0 lead.
CHESTER, Pa. (AP) — Marcus Epps and Borek Dockal scored in the first half and the Philadelphia Union added two more in the second to beat Real Salt Lake 4-1 on Saturday night.
Fabrice-Jean Picault had a 40-yard run up the left channel to set up the opening goal in the 21st minute, rounding his defender and slotting a cross through several defenders to find Epps for the finish.
Dockal chipped home Alejandro Bedoya's through ball to make it 2-0 for the Union (4-5-2) in the 34th minute.
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Last year, the Wyoming football team had arguably the Mountain West's best defense. This spring, the Cowboys likely could put together a solid defense just with injured players. (Hypothetically, of course.)
Carl Granderson, Kevin Prosser and Josiah Hall at defensive end. Sidney Malauulu, Conner Cain, Ravontae Holt and Javaree Jackson at defensive tackle. Ben Wisdorf at linebacker. Marcus Epps at safety.
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Junior safety Andrew Wingard has more or less been the go-to image of Wyoming's defense the past few years. His flowing blond locks are a visible trademark, his outspoken nature has provided bulletin board material for at least one Mountain West rival, and his gaudy tackling numbers have earned him recognition since his freshman season.
But fellow junior safety Marcus Epps, quietly, has been beside him the whole time.
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming's defense didn't just have a bad game last season at New Mexico. It had the worst game.
The Lobos' 568 rushing yards were the most of any Football Bowl Subdivision team in any game last year. No Wyoming defense had ever allowed that many rushing yards in a single game.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Roland Alberg scored in the 88th minute, Andre Blake had his ninth shutout and the Philadelphia Union beat the Seattle Sounders 2-0 on Sunday.
Philadelphia (10-13-9) won for just the second time in its last nine games to keep its slim playoff chances alive. Seattle (12-9-11) needed a win to clinch its ninth straight playoff spot. The Sounders have two home games remaining against FC Dallas and Colorado.
CHESTER, Pennsylvania (AP) — C.J. Sapong scored his 10th goal of the season and contributed to two others as the Philadelphia Union beat nine-man Columbus Crew 3-0 on Wednesday night.
Philadelphia opened the scoring in the 20th minute. After two failed clearances, Sapong's bicycle kick found an open Ilsinho near the penalty spot for a one-touch finish.
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Cowboys have a sophomore safety who last season was named a freshman all-American, represented his team at Mountain West Media Days in July and was named a preseason all-conference player.
The Wyoming Cowboys have a sophomore safety who is a team captain.
Remarkably, they are not the same sophomore safeties.
Marcus Epps was surprised to hear his name included with the team captains Saturday before Wyoming's final scrimmage of fall camp.
