Hard Hat Award (Game #5, @ Tenn.)
Stiller RB Isaac Redman 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.
Redman had a tremendous effort in the loss to the Bitans. The highlight was a 3rd down grab on the 1st series, and then outstanding 2nd, 3rd, and 4th efforts, breaking 5 tackles for a 33-yard gainer. (He was also face-masked on the play, but the “real” officials missed it.) Had a nice RAC on swing pass for an 11-yard gain, 2Q. Nice grab and RAC -- busting a tackle -- and dashing down the s-line for a 55-yard gainer late in the 1H. Ike had another stellar RAC, after pin-balling off a defender on a valve dump in the 3Q, good for 14 yards. He had a nice 5-yard gain in the 3Q, but took a helmet on the knee and was in considerable pain. He was able to walk off, but never returned to action. With this 105 yard receiving effort, Red became the 1st RB in Stiller history to have 100 yards receiving in a game since Frenchy Fuqua in 1970.
Few other players warranted attention. The defense sucked ass and the special teams was vomit-inducing.
Kudos to Redman for winning the Hard Hat Award. Wear the Hard Hat proudly, Isaac!
