While we wait to see who will be crowned this week’s RBC Heritage Player of the Week – and whether the Friday Night Lights will shine in the wake of Hurricane Michael – let’s throw a little love to the guys who worked behind the scenes last Friday.
This space is devoted to the road graders on the offensive line, the run-stuffers and shutdown DBs on defense, and the special teams standouts. In other words, the guys who don’t have the shiny statistics that attract the spotlight.
We call them the Unsung Heroes, and here they are for Week 7 of the high school football season.
