Sportsman of the Week Ending 10/30/2022
Will all four professional sports in regular or post season, we turn to the consummate fall sport, College Football for our honors. The North Carolina Tarheels have been a surprise in the ACC this year, up to 7-1 (4-0 in conference) under legendary coach Mack Brown. The Heels were in a battle this week, before emerging victorious when it counted, the fourth quarter. Led by freshman quarterback Drake Maye, Carolina ran off the game's final 28 points to overcome a 10-point deficit and turn it into an 18-point victory. Maye threw for 3 TD passes over the game's last 22 minutes, amassed 388 yards and 5 TD in the Tarheels 42-24 victory over the Pittsburgh Panthers. Maye was also North Carolina's leading ground gainer with 61 yards on 14 carries, meaning is 449 yards outshined his opponents who had 25 combined rushing otherwise, literally doing it all for the Heels. Drake Maye has a bright future and showed us why, as the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
