Athletes' Achievements

Each cover athlete boasts impressive credentials from the past season. Edwards was instrumental in the Wolverines’ national championship game, becoming the first player in College Football Playoff (CFP) history to score two rushing touchdowns of 40-plus yards in the title game. Ewers led the Longhorns to a 12-2 record and a Big 12 Conference Championship, while Hunter showcased his remarkable two-way talent by recording 100 receiving yards and an interception in a single game, a feat not seen since Miami Hurricane Rashard Smith against the Florida Gators, and Oklahoma Sooner Derek McCoy against the Texas Longhorns, both in 2003.
