Hard Hat Award (Game #5, @ Detroit)

Stillers LB Jamie Harrison is the winner of the weekly Hard Hat Award, given to the Stiller player who best embodies the iron-tough, hard-as-steel attitude of the steel workers inside the blast furnace of a still mill.


Harrison, who has been a terror all season long, once again led by example with a ravaging effort in the win over Detroit.


The man never stopped hustling, hunting, and hitting.�� He tied with a team high 7 solos, and was wreaking havoc all game long.In fact, he forced a fumble on the first Lion play of the game, beating the TE, Heller, off the edge and then stripping the QB.Later in the 1Q, Harrison delivered a punishing but totally clean, legal, �clean up� hit on WR Calvin Johnson after a 0-step hitch.The hit essentially knocked Johnson out of the game and he never returned.This impressed The Committee immensely, as this was a play in which Ike Taylor had made 95% of the stop, but Harrison, with no let-up, cleaned up Johnson to ensure he didn�t escape with extra RAC yardage.Later in the 1Q, Harrison forced an IG flag, and in the 2Q he showed good speed on 3d & 8 to haul down Ballpepper for the sack.In the 3Q, Harrison over-powered Backus, the LT, and then mauled the QB for a sack.


Others receiving consideration from The Committee were Hines Ward, Heath Miller, Will Gay, Pat Bailey, and Mewelde Moore.��


Kudos to Harrison for winning the Hard Hat Award.Wear the Hard Hat proudly, Jamie!��
