Sportsman of the Week Ending 11/19/2023


The NFL season moves to crunch time as games remaining are dwindling and playoff position is at a premium.  In a season in which most teams have 2 or more losses, seeding will be key.  The San Francisco 49ers have one of the most talented rosters in the NFC and after hitting the skids midseason, seem to be hitting their stride.  Thanks to their unassuming superstar QB Brock Purdy.  Purdy emerged last year after poor performance and injury rendered him the starter and he delivered.  The Iowa State product with polished skills across the board continues to produce.  This week in a must win before a tough stretch of schedule, Purdy scored a perfect QB rating at 158.3 in a dominant performance defeating the plucky Tampa Bay Buccaneers 27-14.  Purdy threw 25 times only missing four.  Totaling 333 yards (well over 10 yards per pass and 15 yards per completion) and 3 TDs.  He led the Niners to the NFC Championship game last year and they seemed poised for a potential rematch against the Philadelphia Eagles this year and Purdy can't wait for revenge after being knocked out of last year's blowout.  For now, Brock Purdy is the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
