Sportsman of the Week Ending 12/30/2018

On college football's biggest stage, against college football's most storied program, it was a freshman that had a career day to push his team to the National Championship game.  Clemson Tigers wide receiver Justyn Ross looked like a man among boys as he ran past, around and through the Notre Dame Fighting Irish defense for an easy Cotton Bowl win.  Ross helped the Tigers bust the game open in the second quarter, catching both of his TD passes from 40 yards or more out.  Overall, he hauled in six catches for 148 yards, both were career highs.  Considering the throws were coming from a freshman QB, this is probably not the last we'll hear from Ross.  Starting next week, when the Alabama native faces the home state Crimson Tide in the National Championship Game  Ross is a surprise but worthy, Sportsman of the Week!
