Democrat and Chronicle E2 Saturday,October24,2015 TEXAS TECH QB IMPRESSES WITH NATURAL ABILITY PAGE 10D Had my birthday dinner at Prezzo, a n ice Italian restaurant, and the boys b ought me a piece of cake and the waitresses sang Happy Birthday. So a fterward, an elderly couple stopped by the table to wish me happy birthday. We got to talking, and it turns out the man’s name was Robert Leaf, who just happens to be one of the most iconic figures in public relations history, the real life version of Don Draper. H e went to work for a small firm c alled Burson-Marsteller, and when the c ompany decided to expand overseas, Leaf was the choice to head the expan- s ion. Ultimately, it became the largest PR firm in the world, and Leaf opened offices all over Europe and the Far East, as well as the first PR agency inthe Soviet Union. In January 2014, he was included in The Debrett’s 500 , a list considered to be Britain’s 500 most influential people. An influential well-wisher LONDON - Bills general manager Doug Whaley met with reporters on Friday, and the team’s top two wide receivers were among the hottest topics. P ercy Harvin did not make the trip to London because he’s reportedly contemplating retirement due to an ongoing hip Bills GM Whaley mum on future o f injured Harvin SAL MAIORANA @SALMAIORANA SeeHARVIN,Page8D Arguing with teammates in a huddle is a bad look for a football team most of the time, and the Rush- H enrietta Royal Comets did some of that during the r egular season. "Nah, it's not normal stuff at all,'' Rush-Henrietta senior receiver/defensive back Reggie Robinson s aid. "We just started that because the season was going bad. "We lost to Pittsford (at homecoming), we lost to Victor,(then at Hilton, too). Our heads were down, but sectionals are a new season.'' Working together to complete a game-winning 84-yard drive in the sectionals is a much prettier pic- t ure, and the Royal Comets have done that, too. R eggie Robinson scored on a 13-yard touchdown run up the middle of Rush-Henrietta's line with 42 seconds remaining Friday night, that gave the Royal JAMIE GERMANO/@JGERMANO1/ STAFF PHOTOGRAPHER Rush-Henrietta’s Joseph Ortiz hauls in a catch and runs for a 74-yard touchdown against Pittsford at Sutherland High School on Friday. UPSET SPECIAL Rush-Henrietta knocks off unbeaten Pittsford JAMES JOHNSON @JJDANDC SeeR-H,Page2D Daniel Murphy sent yet another shot soaring over the wall and thrust his right arm in the air — he was in the record book, his Mets were headed to the World Series. Alcides Escobar made his mark with a single, double, triple and bunt. That made him the first player to lead off f our straight games in a postseason series with a hit, putting the Royals ahead in the ALCS. For both, a charmed October. F ar from superstars or the highest- paid guys on their teams, Murphy and Escobar became the latest surprise sensations on baseball’s biggest stages. Murphy might be having the best m onth of them all. After hitting a car eer-best 14 homers in the regular season, the free agent-to-be connected seven times in nine playoff games. He hit four longballs, went 9 for 17 and drove in six runs in New York’s four-game s weep of the Cubs to earn NLCS MVP. “ He’s incredible,” Mets first baseman Lucas Duda said after Game 4. “He’s on a different planet right now.” Planet Postseason, that is. Escobar got off to a fast start, too. A l ifetime .262 hitter in eight seasons, the R oyals shortstop quickly turned into the No. 1for the Blue Jays. Through the first five games of the ALCS, he had 10 hits in 19 at-bats, drove in five runs and scored six. Overall in t he postseason this year, he was batting .400 and tied with Murphy for most hits with 16. Escobar has also played sparkling defense, including his much-replayed, BASEBALL Murphy, Escobar enjoying October Infielders excelling on game’s big stages HOWIE RUMBERG ASSOCIATED PRESS AP In the ALCS, the Royals’ Alcides Escobar has been hot at the plate and terrific in the field.
