Defensive Game Ball: S Nate Gaines
For the second straight week, Safety Nate Gaines earns our defensive game ball. Gaines recorded a team-high 9 tackles on the night. But other than his normal big hitting, Gaines made some huge game-changing plays. The Sophomore from Mesquite intercepted two passes. On his second interception, he lateralled the ball to fellow Safety Michael Egwuagu and then threw two lead blocks to lead Egwuagu into the endzone for a game-sealing touchdown. Gaines is quickly cementing himself as one of the playmakers on the Hard Hat Defense. For his exceptional performance, Gaines earns our defensive game ball.
