2011 Hardhat Game #11


Hard Hat Award (Game # 11, @ KC)

Stillers OLB Jason Worilds 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.


Startign again in place of LaMarr Woodley, Worilds had his finest game as a pro player, with  4 solos, an assist, a sack, and a couple hurries.  Of course, the Hard Hat is far more than mere paper-statistics.   Worilds continually created havoc and showed strong hustle and gusto.   He had good pressure on 3d & 6, 1st drive, to force a hasty incompletion.   He then showed great hustle after rushing QB to come back and nab the WR on a 3rd down WR screen to stop the runner short of the sticks and force a punt.  Many hulking, lazy OLBs would have been content to merely loop rush -- and then jog n� jake -- on this kind of play, but Worilds never allowed his motor to stop.   Worilds also made a superb stop on a draw play at 8:40 4Q.


Others receiving consideration were CB Keenan Lewis and SS Ryan Mundy.  


Kudos to Worilds for winning the Hard Hat Award.  Wear the Hard Hat proudly, Jason !
