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 11/8/2020


A definite candidate for Game of the Year, Clemson at Notre Dame delivered.  It had it all.  Talent all over the field.  Drama with a backup quarterback for Clemson replacing a Heisman Trophy favorite.  A team that hadn't lost a regular season game in years.  And Notre Dame.  Under the shadows of Touchdown Jesus.  And the game lived up to the hype.  It ended in overtime.  Notre Dame's Kyren Williams was steady in all aspects of the game.  The sophomore toted the ball 23 times for an impressive 140 yards, and 3 TD, including one in each overtime.  He was also a key cog in the blocking scheme that allowed Notre Dame to throw for over 300 yards in a workman-like effort.  He consistently found the blitzer and gave his QB time to find his man down field.  Williams joins an historic legacy of Fighting Irish running backs and will likely play on Sunday, and is a worthy Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
