Sportsman of the Week Ending 12/6/2020


An historic performance for a tight end you may not have heard of earns our Sportsman of the Week honors.  His contributions were critical to getting a miracle win to keep his team in the playoffs.  Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller notched over 200 yards receiving and two touchdowns in a 31-28 win on the last play over the New York Jets.  It was only the sixth time a tight end registered 200 yards in a game.  While he didn't catch the game winning TD in the waning seconds, no way the Raiders are there without him.  After a few seasons of nondescript opportunity and results, Waller burst on the scene in 2019 with five 100 yard games, and this week's was his second 100 yard performance of 2020 to go with a career high 7 TD on the season.  Waller is second in the league in TE receiving yards, and a big name to watch as our Sportsman of the Week!
