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 11/12/2023


The college football season is hitting a crescendo for the Playoffs, but I believe it's time we look beyond playoff contenders for Heisman favorites.  Look no further than Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  Senior Louisiana State QB Jayden Daniels is dominating the SEC and rewriting record books.  And he's the definition of dual threat.  And both he goes for big yards.  On Saturday against formidable, if not ranked, Florida, Daniels tallied off 372 yards passing on just 26 attempts for nearly 15 yards a drop back.  And when he wasn't throwing, he'd run for 234 on 12 carries for 19.5 yards per tote.  He's third in the country in passing behind last year's Heisman winner and another favorite for this year.  He's nearing 1000 yards, top 30 in the country.  He's a weapon and while LSU won't win the SEC, he deserves to be in New York and perhaps, raising that large trophy.  Jayden Daniels is the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
