Co-Special Teams Player of the Week
Owen Garwood – St. Joseph’s Prep – Jr. – WR
With the Hawks in the midst of seizing control of their PCL 6A Title Game, Garwood put a stranglehold on the game even more so when he busted through the Explorers line to block a punt. Teammate sr. Keenan Nelson scooped and returned the ball seven yards to the two-yard line. On the next play, soph. RB Kahseim Phillips slashed his way into the end zone to give the Hawks a 21-0 first quarter advantage. The Hawks would never look back in a convincing, 35-to-7, victory.
