Sportsman of the Week Ending 12/24/2023


The proverbial "undercard" of the College Football Bowl season continues to play out and the game are thrilling.  The "we don't need these games" fall on deaf ears for players and teams that this is the best they can reach.  Like Western Kentucky, Conference USA contenders and now Famous Toastery Bowl Champions.  What made their effort special was 24 unanswered points over the last 15 minutes coming back from 28-0 and 35-14 led by our Sportsman of the Week at the helm.  Caden Veltkamp threw with accuracy and deadly results in bringing the Hilltoppers back to win in overtime 38-35 over the Old Dominion Monarchs. Veltkamp through early and often, 52 attempts with 40 connected and 383 yards and 5 TDs.  He also ran another 19 times meaning 71 plays it was him for 400+ yards.  And oh I mentioned, a Famous Toastery Bowl victory, the most important thing.  Caden Veltkamp is a worthy Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
