Who am I?

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 9/18/2016

Week 3 of College Football proved to sort out those teams at the top of the playoff hunt.  Look no further than Louisville demolishing Top 3 Florida State.  Led by Quarterback Lamar Jackson's arm and legs.  The sophomore quarterback shredded the highly touted Seminole defense for 146 yards and 4 TDs on the ground.  When he decided not to run, he 13/20 for over 200 yards for over 10 yards per attempt, nearly 20 yards per completion (so these weren't the short variety).  He probably would have thrown more if the Noles had put up any resistance to the run.  Through three games, Jackson has run for over 100 yards and passed for over 200 yards in all three games.  He's moved to the front of the Heisman line, and is our Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
