He’ll be a true freshman in 2019 and Hurts has just one season of eligibility remaining.The five-star quarterback isn’t backing down from a quarterback competition, either.“I love it. Jalen is a great player and I’m excited to get to play with him. It’ll be great competition for sure.””I love it. Jalen is a great player and I’m excited to get to play with him.

The Best Sunglasses for Men this Season You know that favorite pair of jeans in your closet? The ones that look so stylish, yet feel ultra comfortable? Well, imagine pairing that wardrobe stable with your furniture. That’s exactly what happened when furniture designer Stephen Kenn recently teamed up with the Simon Miller Design Studio.“The idea was to build the furniture with a similar mindset as the clothing,” says Daniel Corrigan, partner and co-creative director. “Focusing on the texture and material and how that will age over time.”The new Inheritance collection includes an array of pillows, table, chairs and sofa—all with a simple, streamlined design and very comfortable and livable for your home—but there’s more here than meets the eye. Each piece reflects a piece of history, as the material used to create the upholstery is repurposed military fabric.Kenn found his inspiration while digging through a military surplus store. The bins full of tents, parachutes, bags and clothing once used in WWII gave him a focal point for not only giving these items new life, but in creating furniture that reflects appreciation for our hard-fought freedom.Even better, they’ve found a way to produce everything locally in Los Angeles. Kenn ties his furniture together with webbed WWII mule belts, replicas he hires a local webbing company to produce. The fabric is tediously hand-dyed by Noon Studio to create the comfort of a well-worn pair of jeans.The sofa is priced at $6,000.
