Sportsman of the Week Ending 11/1/2020


The man of the match, best way to describe the gutsy performance of our Sportsman of the Week.  Texas Longhorns linebacker Joseph Ossai terrorized the Top 10 Oklahoma State offense forcing turnovers, and in the end saving the game.  Ossai notched 12 tackles, including an astounding 7 for loss (not your typical tackle the running back after 5 yards).  And the three sacks were the biggest, one he forced a fumble, recovered two, another he ended the game on fourth down by chasing the Pokes QB Spencer Sanders in overtime for the Horns to beat the #6 Cowboys 41-34.  Additionally, he led the defense that held 2019 Doak Walker finalist Chuba Hubbard to under 100 yards for the first time in conference play since his freshman year in 2018.  Ossai wouldn't be stopped and is the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
