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 10/1/2017

One of the emerging stars in the NFL led his team to a big road win, positioning his team for a potential division title.  Todd Gurley of the Los Angeles Rams is off to a start that many forecasted when he came out of Georgia.  But it's taken him a couple of years, an ACL recovery, and maybe a maturing QB to make the leap.  This week, he went into north Texas to take on America's team.  But it was Gurley who came out opening eyes.  He ended his day as the player with the most rushing yards, most catches, and only four yards from being the highest receiving yards.  On either team.  That's 23 carries for 121 yards, 7 catches for 94 yards and a TD.  So over 300 yards on just 30 touches.  Pretty good.  The Rams are 3-1 and in front in the NFC West.  They might stay there with the efforts of our Sportsman of the Week!
