Edison-Chavez Player of the Game: Priest Jennings

As I watched Priest Jennings take an incredible, long touchdown run down the sideline Friday night, I could only think of the words of Mark Jackson, an NBA commentator, the former coach of the Golden State Warriors and an NBA point guard in the ’90s. “Mama, there goes that man!” Jennings tore apart Edison in [...]
