Hard Hat Award (Game #15, @ Green Bay)
In the game 15 win over Green Bay, Stiller RB Leveon Bell and Punter Mat McBriar were the co-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.
Bell had his first 100-yard game as a pro, rushing for 124 yards on 26 carries. He had a costly fumble in the 3Q that led to a GB TD, but he didn’t mope or pout. Instead, he came back with a vengeance with some spirited running.
McBriar had a superb day of punting, pinning the Jackers inside their 10 on a couple of occasions. He also calmly and coolly completed a pass on a fake punt, good for 30 yards and a key first down.
Other receiving consideration by The Committee were Sharko Thomas, who hauled down the KO returner late in the game and saved a TD; and Troy Pola, who forced a fumble in the 4Q.
Kudos to Bell and McBriar for winning the Hard Hat Award. Wear the Hard Hat proudly, gents !
