A 4th String QB & a Late Hit at the End of a Game: The AFC & NFC Championship Games

A 4th String QB & a Late Hit at the End of a Game: The AFC & NFC Championship Games

Going into the NFC Championship game, San Francisco was feeling confident despite having to start their 3rd string QB, Brock Purdy. However, early in the game he was hurt. Soon after, their 4th string QB was hurt too. The injured Purdy returned to the game but he could barely throw and thus San Francisco lost the game by a lot. In the AFC Championship game, near the end of the game, Patrick Mahomes was scrambling and he was hit late after he had stepped out of bounds. That fifteen yard penalty then set up the game winning field goal for the Chiefs. Now that I've given you the game summaries, let's see you demonstrate your knowledge of the smaller details.

Dave is an accomplished economics instructor with over two decades of experience in the prestigious International Baccalaureate program. His students have consistently ranked in the top 10% annually, and one year they achieved the highest overall class average in the world. This outstanding achievement led a UK publisher to request that he write a textbook, an offer he declined in favor of creating sports quizzes, which he found more engaging.

In addition to his teaching career, Dave is also a former high school football coach, having won a couple of local championships. While he wishes he had won more, he continues to be deeply involved in football as a scout, recruiter, and social media creator for a university football team.

Dave's passions extend beyond the classroom and football field. He is an avid fan of live music and international travel, often combining these interests. He has traveled to Spain, England, Iceland, and Chile to see bands perform. His greatest pride and joy is his daughter, who has recently excelled in powerlifting. In just a few years, she has become the Canadian record holder for the bench press in her weight class and finished second overall in the combined national event (bench, deadlift, and squat) in Moose Jaw in March 2024. She will be representing Canada at the World Bench Competition in Austin, Texas, in May 2024.

A die-hard fan of the Las Vegas Raiders, Dave has experienced his share of sports heartache, having seen them play in seven NFL cities with six losses. His all-time favorite athlete is Don Mattingly, reflecting his deep love for sports that spans many arenas.
