Sportsman of the Week Ending 12/31/2023


It's a Longhorndave on Sports tradition that Bowl Season the big players in Bowl games get the nod for Sportsman of the Week honors and this week is no different.  While some complain that the Bowl Season was watered down with too many, now watered down with opt outs, the Chick-Fil-a Peach Bowl brought two heavyweight conference contenders who were within a game or two of the College Football Playoff in Ole Miss and Penn State.  Two great coaches and loads of talent in a hotbed of college football, Atlanta, GA.  And Ole Miss was all gas and no brakes in running up the score on a strong Penn State defense.  Rebels Quarterback Jaxson Dart shredded the Nittany Lions defense for 379 yards and 3 TD.  While the other 15 yards of passing for Ole Miss was caught by the junior while running for 14 yards and a fourth TD.  Ole Miss looks to be a force in the SEC for years to come, including next year when Dart has professed to come back and will be on the Heisman short list.  It was a big win led by our Sportsman of the Week!
