I'm from Houston, a graduate of the University of Texas, a fan of the Houston Astros and Houston Texans. But this blog will be about the "greater sports", whatever that means.

Sportsman of the Week Ending 2/3/2013

Razor close decision this week, but I leaned toward more the unsung hero in Jacoby Jones.  Jones has had a tumultuous 12 months in which he committed a critical mistake for the Texans in a loss to the Ravens in the playoffs (Jan 2012), then caught on with the same Ravens and has starred as a kick returner and receiver.  After catching that clutch pass against the Broncos to save the season from what seemed like doom, he came up HUGE in Super Bowl XLVII with a TD reception to end the 2nd quarter, then a 109, oops, 108 yard kick return to start the 2nd half.  While it didn't quite put a dagger in the 49ers, it certainly gave them necessary distance to hold them off at the end.  Jacoby Jones is a deserving Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
