Concerning Sportsman of the Year, I can think of many deserving candidates. How about Fernando Valenzuela, Rollie Fingers, Mike Schmidt or Pete Rose? Or Craig Morton or Eric Hippie? Or Bear Bryant, Marcus Allen or Jim McMahon? Larry Bird or Isiah Thomas? John McEnroe? Wayne Gretzky? Sugar Ray Leonard? How about a group award?

Keep in mind Bing Crosby's son Nathaniel. His come-from-behind win in the U.S. Amateur will surely be long remembered.
