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 12/23/2018

The College Football Bowl Season continues through the pre-Christmas slate and another unheralded star has emerged.  Brigham Young University freshmen quarterback Zach Wilson put his team on his back and led the Cougars to a decisive 49-18 victory over the Western Michigan Broncos in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl.  Yes, the one on Blue Turf.  However, it was that turf that none of Wilson's passes actually hit.  He was a record perfect 18-18 in passing with 4 of those resulting in touchdowns.  Lest you thought he was just throwing easy short routes, he eclipsed 300 yards (317 to be exact) and no, none of his passes were caught by the other team either.  BYU finished a transition season at 7-6 but is positioned strongly for the future, with our Sportsman of the Week a talent at QB to watch for years to come!
