Top prospect Garrett pleads to be taken by Cowboys, says he'll skip draft in Philly

Top prospect Garrett pleads to be taken by Cowboys, says he'll skip draft in Philly

Former Texas A&M star Myles Garrett is viewed as the top prospect in the 2017 NFL draft and the likely the No. 1 overall pick of the Cleveland Browns.

However, Garrett has another team on his radar. The defensive end made a home video plea to  Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys to trade up and draft him.

“I’m speaking to you, Jerry. Mr. (Jason) Garrett (Cowboys head coach), make it happen,” Garrett said. “I need you to take Tony Romo, take a couple of picks and give them to Cleveland (who holds the No. 1 pick in the draft) so you can pick me up. Please, I’d love to play in Dallas. Just make it happen.”

It makes sense why Garrett wants to stay in his home state and play for the Cowboys. They’re coming off a 13-3 season and if not for a few ridiculous throws from Aaron Rodgers, the Cowboys are in the NFC Championship game. Not to mention, they had two rookies in Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott who both had stellar seasons.

Still, Garrett will more than likely get chosen by the Browns, who are coming off an abysmal 1-15 season.

Garrett made more news on Friday by stating to the Houston Chronicle that he won't be attending this year's draft in Philadelphia.

“I’m staying at home,” he told the newspaper.

Watch: Fan lays out for incredible catch at Phillies-Rockies game

Watch: Fan lays out for incredible catch at Phillies-Rockies game

If you missed Monday night's Phillies game, you didn't miss a whole lot. The Phillies put up just three hits and lost, 8-1, to the Rockies at Citizens Bank Park.

However, there was one heck of a catch, and it came in the stands.

This fan went all out for an incredible one-handed grab in the bottom of the sixth inning. The snag, one of the better ones you'll see in the crowd this season, elicited a nice applause from the fans and a shoutout from Phillies broadcasters Tom McCarthy and John Kruk.

"Did he go over the top of the girl next to him?" McCarthy asked, impressed by the play.

"I think he was trying save her," Kruk said. "Let's go with chivalry, he was trying to save her."

Hat tip to this guy for making the catch of the night, which you can watch right here.

N.J. high school baseball player performs big-league worthy bat flip

With all the bat flips going on in Major League Baseball by the likes of Odubel Herrera and Jose Bautista, it's a good bet that kids watching the game are taking notice.

Gloucester Catholic High School's Chris Turco has apparently seen the celebration.

In a game on Sunday, Turco launched the ball high above the wall in left field. However, he may have launched the bat even higher.

Look at this ridiculous bat flip.

According to Kevin Minnick of South Jersey Sports Digest, both of the next hitters were plunked and Turco's team lost.

Despite that, Turco is giving the pros a run for their money in the bat flip department.
