Link player in News Articles Merged

When posting a story about a game, there are usually many references to players. There should be a way to either manually tag the story so it attaches to the player on his player page or there should be an automatic method where the process "reads" the story and picks up on players names and attaches itself (or some hybrid where you can confirm the correct player is tagged).

As most stories about games are tagged with the specific teams, the list of players should be small enough to match up the names to the rosters without having to query a very large database.

We also post general interest stories about players (not associated with a game) that should also be tagged. (i.e. - College Commitments, awards, etc.)
