2010 Hardhat Game #13 vs. Cinci

Hard Hat Award (Game #13, vs. Cinci)

Stiller SS Troy Polamalu 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.


Pola had a superb game, single-handedly (or two-handedly) making enormous plays to ensure the Stiller victory over the Bungals.��


In the 2Q, with the rest of the team sleep-walking and bumbling, Pola astutely read the QB and snared an INT, and then took off for the goal line.�� He was nabbed near the sidelines by Carson LipBalmer, but in a true display of sheer athleticism, Pola vaulted and stretched the ball to the pylon for a mammoth touchdown.��


The only negative on this play was that Troy tweaked a nagging ankle and limped in pain back to the bench.Undaunted, Troy refused to sit out, and returned without missing a play the entire rest of the game.�� That, my friends, is what Hard Hat football is all about.


Then, in the 4Q, with the game still very much in doubt due to the constant leakiness of Dick LeBeau�s 4th Qtr. Softee Defense, Pola again saved the D�s bacon with a clutch INT.��


Kudos to Polamalu for winning the Hard Hat Award.Wear the Hard Hat proudly, Troy !
