Cordele, Georgia, native Austin French may have gained nationwide notoriety this summer on ABC’s “Rising Star,” but it was as a member of Georgia 4-H where friends and supporters first recognized his star quality. “4-H, in general, was a huge catalyst for my music career — just public speaking and being personable, reaching out to people. I learned all that through 4-H. Without 4-H, I don’t know if I’d be where I am right now,” French said.The south Georgia singing sensation and Georgia 4-H Clovers & Company alumnus became a household name when he finished as runner-up on the inaugural season of ABC’s “Rising Star,” a reality television singing competition. French, who still leads church worship services at Journey Baptist Church in Tifton, believes 4-H was the springboard for his musical career.“Going on this competition, I did so many TV interviews, talked to different people, met different executives — without the confidence that 4-H really equipped me with, it might have turned out a lot differently,” said French.Joining the group when he was in fifth grade, French was a member of Clovers & Company from 2005 to 2012. French is not the first Clovers & Company alum to achieve success.“Clovers & Company acts as a catalyst to not only get youth more involved with 4-H, but also to propel them toward a successful career in the performing arts,” said Cheryl Varnadoe, assistant show director and state coordinator for Clovers & Company.Country music superstar and Douglas, Georgia, native Jennifer Nettles is also a past member of Clovers & Company, as is songwriter and Washington, Georgia, native Hillary Lindsey. Before launching her solo career, Nettles was a member of the CMT Music Award-winning group, Sugarland. Lindsey is known for writing chart-topping hits like “Jesus Take The Wheel” and “Two Black Cadillacs,” both recorded by Carrie Underwood.Varnadoe is not surprised by French’s success and is confident there are many more musical talents in Georgia.“Austin was a member of our cast for eight years, so we were fortunate enough to be able to watch him grow as a performer as well as a leader. Austin was always featured prominently in our shows, and we knew that it was only a matter of time before the rest of the world discovered what a true star he was, both on and off the stage. It makes us so proud to claim someone as successful as Austin as one of our own,” Varnadoe said. “It is an honor for me, as well as the rest of the staff, to be able to work with incredibly talented young people in Georgia 4-H Clovers & Company.”Clovers & Company was founded in 1981 and is comprised of talented Georgia 4-H members from across the state. Tryouts for the 2015-2016 Clovers & Company group will be held June 11, 2015, at the Fortson 4-H Center in Atlanta and June 16, 2015, at the Rock Eagle 4-H Center in Eatonton.For more information, contact your local UGA Extension office at 1-800-ASK-UGA1 or Varnadoe at (706) 542-9237 or [email protected]

Mikel Arteta’s men appeared on course for victory at the Amex Stadium after Nicolas Pepe’s superb long-range strike in the 68th minute before a pair of late goals from Lewis Dunk and Neal Maupay sealed all three points for the hosts.

The 35-year-old played a key part in the famous 2005 Champions League final victory over AC Milan but the top domestic prize just evaded his grasp. “I wish I’d have won the league but you’ve given it everything and done as much as you can in terms of what you put into it,” said the centre-back, who will bow out at Anfield in his 737th and final match for the club against QPR. The closest he came to it was in 2008/09 when the club’s record Premier League points tally of 86 – a season in which they lost just two matches – was still only good enough for a runners-up place to Manchester United. Since then Carragher believes the standard of the Premier League has dipped – along with Liverpool’s chances of competing for the top four, never mind the title. He added: “We weren’t good enough, all of us. It’s very simple, there’s no fancy reason or excuse, other teams in that particular season were better than us. A couple of times we went close but it was Manchester United or Arsenal. It’s not something I lose sleep over, I’ve been very lucky to achieve some of the things I have. “If you look at everyone there’s always something someone hasn’t done. There’s always more to achieve, whatever you’ve done. I’m pleased with how it’s gone. “If someone had offered me to be here until the end of my career – the trophies, the big games we’ve played and won, the stadiums I’ve played in – I’d have bitten their hand off for that.” Asked for his highlight, he stressed there was no contest, and he added: “Istanbul, nothing will beat that – the Champions League final. It’s difficult to ever top that. We’ve never won the league, which is a disappointment; if we’d have won that maybe I could have compared the two. “We’ve won FA Cups, Carling Cups, the UEFA Cup but nothing compared to the Champions League. It’s the biggest and best trophy that you can win as a footballer in club football. It’s what we achieved. It’s a team game; there are different managers and coaches who have helped you along the way, you do your best – I’ve done all right.” Press Association Retiring Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher admits the one regret of his 16-year Reds playing career was not winning the league title.
