Sportsman of the Week Ending 11/27/2016

Thanksgiving weekend was a football feast in both college in the pros, but perhaps the most playoff-changing scenario took place in Denver on the NFL Sunday Night Football.  With the Denver Broncos hosting the Kansas City Chiefs, both 7-3 teams desperately needed a win to keep their AFC West Playoff hopes alive.  The Chiefs won at the gun of overtime, but they would not have made overtime without an emerging rookie star.  The Chiefs scored three TDs in the game, one running, one passing, and one special teams.  The same player scored all three, the first individual to do it since Gale Sayers in 1965. Tyreek Hill didn't light up the Broncos with long plays, but was the one guy in the red zone who could solve the viscous Broncos defense.  He rushed for a 3 yard TD, scored on an 86 yard kick return (after a safety) and caught an 11 yard TD pass on the final play in regulation.  The Chiefs found a way to win, and they may have struck gold with their fifth round pick out of Oklahoma State via West Alabama.  He is our Sportsman of the Week!
