THIS IS THE 66th time that SPORTS ILLUSTRATED has chosen a Sportsperson of the Year—it’s happened every December since the magazine was born in 1954. Our first honoree, Roger Bannister, fresh off breaking the four-minute barrier in the mile, did an excellent job of capturing the essence of the award and setting the tone for the recipients who would follow him. In SI’s Sportsperson story that year, Bannister said that redefining the limits of human achievement came down to “the ability to take more out of yourself than you’ve got.” With this issue we celebrate a collection of athletes who, each in their own way, know exactly what the original SOTY was talking about. Our Breakout of the Year, Mavericks superkid Luka Dončić, is scoring and rebounding at a rate previously…

JOE BURROW AND JUSTIN HERBERT Does the NCAA even use the term student-athlete anymore? Both star quarterbacks—LSU’s Burrow and Oregon’s Herbert—take only online courses, Burrow a “light masters-level class load” and Herbert just one class. Hardly the college experience. Has it really been so long since students stayed for four years, graduated and found careers (some in football)? Tom Thornell Lockhart, Texas It doesn’t surprise me that Nebraska passed on Burrow. The Cornhuskers decided Frank Solich wasn’t the answer, either, and gave him the boot for going 58–19. They have gone 121–84 since. Solich was hired at Ohio in 2005, and Joe’s father, Jim, another former Nebraska coach, joined his staff. Together they helped the Bobcats develop into a MAC powerhouse.

THE STORIES came to Daniel Carcillo in droves. Emails and texts, Instagram and Twitter direct messages, more than 300 total in less than a week. Some came from teenagers in faraway corners of the hockey world, others from NHL veterans with blue-check mark accounts. All recounted instances of physical, sexual and emotional trauma suffered, as Carcillo once did, while playing hockey. Almost exactly one year ago, Carcillo spoke out against the brutish hazing rituals he suffered through at the hands of teammates as a 17-year-old rookie in the OHL. Since then he has provided a safe space of sorts for others to share their own stories. “I want to be a conduit for healing,” says Carcillo, 34, a career enforcer who won the Stanley Cup twice with Chicago before retiring in…

FREDDIE KITCHENS A PLAIN T-SHIRT The Browns’ coach caused a stir with his PITTSBURGH STARTED IT shirt before Cleveland fell to the Steelers earlier this month. Maybe Freddie should keep it simple from now on. YOUR DISTRAUGHT ALABAMA FAN FRIEND A SKI TRIP Sure, Bama fans are beside themselves now that the Tide will miss the College Football Playoff for the first time ever.

hall pass

AFTER FAILING to be inducted on seven ballots, MLB’s first union leader, Marvin Miller, finally made it into the Baseball Hall of Fame on Dec. 8, voted in by the Modern Baseball Era committee—even though he asked before his death in 2012 that his name not appear on future ballots. In fact, another recent honor is likely to have meant more to Miller: a photo in the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. The museum holds portraits of iconic Americans. The gallery’s interest in acquiring the perfect portrait of Miller began a few years ago, when the director handed two prospective names to Ann Shumard, the senior curator of photographs. “One was Madeleine Albright, and the other was Marvin Miller,” Shumard says. Miller’s photo is the one above, taken during…
