Habersham EMC Linemen of the Week: Payton Freeman / Jaheim Hardy
Brand New for 2020 – the Habersham EMC Linemen of the Week. Long have people asked for the guys who do the dirty work to get more recognition. Now, they do. Each week in the 2020 season, we will recognize an offensive lineman (or the full line as it is often a joint effort), and a defensive lineman, sponsored by Habersham EMC.
This week’s winners are Payton Freeman (Commerce) for the O-Line, and Jaheim Hardy (Jefferson) for the D-Line.
PATYTON FREEMAN – COMMERCE
Senior Payton Freeman paved the way to nearly 300 yards of offense for the Tigers in their second round victory, and graded out at an amazing 96%. This is Freeman’s first BLITZ award.
OTHERS WHO STOOD OUT: Brian Habeck (Jefferson JR; 95% 3 PNK)
JAHEIM HARDY – JEFFERSON
Jaheim Hardy has been close to winning this award about every week. On a huge stage, in the second round against a top-10 opponent, Hardy showed out with 9 tackles (3 for loss) including 2 sacks, and 2 QB hurries! This is Hardy’s first BLITZ award.
OTHERS WHO STOOD OUT: Bo Childers (Commerce; 92%, 5 TKL); Cesar Cruz (Rabun; 9 TKL)
