Sportsman of the Week Ending 2/11/2024


One of the highlights of the American Sports Calendar is the Super Bowl, that cannot be disputed.  And the Kansas City Chiefs are becoming synonymous with the big game, at least the last 5 years, in which they've been a participant four times, and winners now three.  Super Bowl LVIII did not disappoint as two evenly matched teams, the aforementioned Chiefs and the NFC Champion (and top seed) San Francisco 49ers squared off for the second time in five years in the Big Game.  The Niners were slight favorites.  But the Chiefs had Patrick Mahomes II.  After a stumble start with just 123 yards going into half and his team trailing 10-3, compounded with an interception coming out of halftime, the next generation dynasty QB got lit.  Hit for 201 yards and 2 TDs over the last 24 minutes of regulation and an overtime period.  The overtime period in which he stamped his third title in five years and second straight championship.  Mahomes II was also the Chiefs leading rusher with 66 yards on 9 carries including several back breaking scrambles.  The greats win and the greats get recognized as the Sportsman of the Week!
