Fallstrom, Thompson named HEMC Linemen Of The Week

Dawson County’s Jimmy Fallstrom (OL) and Rabun County’s Chris Thompson (DL) have been named the Habersham EMC Linemen of the Week by BLITZ.


Jimmy Fallstrom earns his first-ever BLITZ award after leading a front line that paved the way for 52 points and over 400 yards of offense in a Dawson County win over Gilmer. The senior lineman also ensured pocket passer QB Zach Holtzclaw remained upright, allowing no sacks.

Other OL Standouts – Lambdin Hardy (Commerce SR OL #70 – 406 rush yds, 95% grade); Jamarcus Hill (Jefferson SR OL #78 – Championship grade; 359 rush yds; 7.5 yds/play); Eli Ward (Banks JR OT #55 – 4 Pancakes; 200+ rush yds)
