2010 Hardhat Game #18 vs. Jets

Hard Hat Award (AFCC, vs. NY Jets)

Stillers RB Rashard Mendenhall is the winners 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.


Mendy had a tremendous effort against the Jest, shredding the Jet defense for 121 yards on 27 rushes, and 1 TD.�� The TD run was a strong 2nd-effort kind of plunge, and there were several other carries where Mendy ran like a man possessed.Pound for pound, this rushing effort will go down in Stillers lore, alongside some of the great playoff rushing efforts by Franco, Hoge, Parker, and others.��


Many other Stillers fought hard and displayed the kind of attitude and grit that The Committee looks favorably upon.�� Honorable mention goes to James Harrison, Tonio Brown, Casey Hampton, Heath Miller, David Johnson, Larry Timmons, and Taunto Farrior.�� It bears repeating that, when numerous Stillers are being considered for The Hard Hat, it typically means a winning effort.��


Kudos to Mendy for winning the Hard Hat Award.Wear the Hard Hat proudly, Rashard!���
