It was a productive week for the Broncos as the soccer team snagged a couple of conference wins. The volleyball team won. The football team won. Lots of winning this week. Let us get to talking about some winners!
Game Ball One:
Raimee Sherle (soccer)
Home girl has been on quite the tear this past week. She scored the game-winning goal against Colorado State. And then followed that up with putting up another three goals against Colorado College. If she continues this, she may just find herself as the Mountain West Conference Freshman of the Year at the awards ceremony. And, possibly, an All-Team selection, at minimum an Honorable Mention. That torrid pace is hard to keep up, but here is to hoping!
Congratulations Ms. Sherle!
Game Ball Two:
Sabryn Roberts (volleyball)
Usually a spot on OBNUG Game Balls is reserved for Ms. Sierra Nobley. And an argument could be made she should be here. But I am going to go ahead and give one to a name I do not bring up very often—Ms. Sabryn Roberts. She helped the Broncos take down the San Diego State Aztecs with double-digit kills and team-leading 47.6 hitting percentage. She followed that up with another double-digit number of kills against Nevada, though that match ended in a 3-1 loss. The Broncos are 2-2 in the Mountain West and look to put together more wins.
All that aside, congratulations Ms. Roberts.
Game Ball One:
Jeremy McNichols (football)
I almost did not give this Game Ball to Mr. McNichols because was not a preseason Mountain West Conference selection. That last sentence is a joke by the way. Both in that he was not a selection and that I was of course going to give him a Game Ball. 200+ all-purpose yards and a touchdown? And being a freak athletic specimen? Yeah. He gets a Game Ball. He has consistently been a beacon of light and hope for the Broncos’ offense. And I certainly hope that he continues to be as such. He put the Broncos on his back (along with a bevy of Utah State Aggies) and was clutch near the end. Hope to see more of that.
The football team was especially saved by some lock-down defense. Anyone on there that should have gotten a Game Ball? Jabril Frazier? David Moa? Ben Weaver? Sam McCaskill?
Let me know.
