Sportsman of the Week Ending 1/29/2023


The penultimate weekend of the NFL had the best four team squaring off for a berth in the Super Bowl.  And the home team, number one seeds did not disappoint.  In what was supposed to be a close game, the Philadelphia Eagles broke the game open on early big plays by their defense.  Led by edge disrupter Haason Reddick, the Eagles shut down the San Francisco 49ers holding them to just a TD over the game for an easy 31-7 victory to win the NFC Championship.  Reddick ended up with 3 tackles, 2 of them sacks. a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery.  When he wasn't making tackles, he was disrupting the anemic, injury-riddled 49ers offense causing fits.  Reddick was one of many difference makers, but it was his sacks and fumble influence that really made the game non-competitive.  On to the Super Bowl for the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
