It is the 10th Annual recap of the year's champions in major pro and college sports. Personally, it's hard to believe I kept this going from the time I started in my high school library back in '06.

For the 10th time, let's take a look back at another chapter of sports history. Five Big Points:

- Brady matched Joe Montana as he lead the Patriots to their 4th title and his 4th ring.
- LeBron James returns "home" to Cleveland, who makes it back to the Finals... only to get beat by Steph Curry and the Warriors.
- The Ohio State Buckeyes win the inaugural CFP National Championship as a 4th seed, surprising everyone but still, there are calls for the playoff to expand to 8.
- After the heartbreak of losing last season, the Royals beat the Mets, winning their first World Series in 30 years. Unfortunately for Cubs fans, the "Back to the Future prophecy" did not come true.
- The U.S. Women's National Team found redemption in beating Japan 5-2 for their third World Cup

Here's a list of the major National and World Champions of 2015, in case you've been living under a rock...
