He is recovering at home in England with daughter and deputy team boss Claire Williams, who has been in charge of the day-to-day running of the Williams team since 2013.Chief executive Mike ODriscoll took Claire Williams place in the Friday team principals press conference in Mexico, where he updated F1 media about the situation.[Sir Frank] has been a fixture in the paddock for so many years its strange not to have him with us, he said. Hes had a tough time in hospital, hes making a recovery, a slow, steady recovery. We hope to see him back in Grove very soon, we all know how determined he is.Claire Williams continues to be absent from the paddock as she sits at her fathers bedside, though ODriscoll believes she will be back in time for the season finale in Abu Dhabi.We expect Claire to be back [in 2016], he said. Shes wanted to be close to home, close to Frank, but in this world youre only a phone call away, so weve stayed connected and shes part of everything that happens on a minute-by-minute, day-by-day basis. We hope to see her by the end of the year, hopefully at Abu Dhabi.Sir Frank Williams is one of the most revered figures in F1, having led his independent team to nine constructors and seven drivers championships since its foundation in 1977. He was confined to a wheelchair in 1986 after suffering a car accident in France. Nike Air Huarache Mens Sale . -- If this was Aaron Gordons final home game at Arizona, and it almost certainly was, then he went out in style. Nike Air Huarache White Mens . Louis Rams wide receiver Stedman Bailey last Sunday. The fine is the fourth this season for Goldson.

He was the two-time defending gold medallist. The gold medal went to Swiss snowboarder Iouri Podladtchikov. STILLWATER, Okla. -- Coming into his senior season, Oklahoma State safety Jordan Sterns made a concerted effort to become a better player, both on the field and in the locker room. His hard work paid off, with an outstanding year that resulted in All-Big 12 honors.Sterns, who led the Cowboys with 108 tackles last season as a junior, felt like he had another step to take in his performance, and he made it happen.This offseason, I worked probably harder than I ever had, just because I wanted to go out this year with a bang, he said. Just working out, even when I didnt feel like it, just doing little things, stretching a little more -- in the cold weather, when I didnt want to be out there, just forcing myself to do it. Ultimately, I think thats what led to my success this year.Now Sterns is preparing for his final collegiate game, when No. 13 Oklahoma State takes on No. 11 Colorado in the Alamo Bowl on Dec. 29.Sterns was dominant for the Cowboys (9-3, 7-2) this season, leading the team in tackles again with 96, including five for a loss, along with three interceptions, matching cornerback Ramon Richards for the team lead. One of his picks was in the end zone on the final play to clinch the Cowboys 43-37 win over Kansas State on Nov. 5.He also made a point to improve his presence in the locker room, becoming a more prominent leader.Basically, I just wasnt happy with how I was off the field, Sterns said. I wasnt taking it as serious as I could have. I wanted to win, but I wasnt being a vocal leader. I wasnt getting on guys even when I thought they were doing something wrong, I was just being passive. I kind of took a look in the mirror and was like, `I need to step up. My coaches respect me, my teammates respect me, I think I could be a little more successful -- thats something I can do. Nike Air Trainer Huarache Sale. Richards, a junior, said Sterns made a huge contribution in leadership this year.Jordan has had more impact on me than anybody since Ive been here at Oklahoma State, said Richards, who was fourth on the team with 60 tackles. Hes been a guy whos led by example. He doesnt talk the most, but when he does talk, its very impactful. If he makes a mistake, he owns up to it. Hes just a great leader.The OSU coaches recognize the effort Sterns has put in.He comes in every day, hes just a ballplayer, defensive coordinator Glenn Spencer said. Hes always wanted to be good, always has brought an intensity to our room that youve got to have. I wish there was a lot more like him.Head coach Mike Gundy marveled at the way Sterns seems to relish the physical contact necessary at his position.I think his demeanor, hes somewhat old-school in his willingness to strike the other team, Gundy said. It goes against human nature to want to collide with another human body and I dont really think he gives a second thought about it. He brings a little bit of toughness to our program, especially our defense.Sterns final collegiate game is in San Antonio, close to his hometown of Cibolo, Texas.Just being able to go home and play in front of everybody I love, Ive played in that stadium two or three times, so Im familiar with it, Im just excited, said Sterns, who has secured 26 tickets so far for family and friends. I think its going to be a great game.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 ;Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
