Nature Coast 'Hawgs'
There's a reason the Sharks have rushed for more than 400 yards in two games.
Sure the Sharks have a great stable of running backs in Tevin Drake, Antwan Story and Eric Williams. But a lot of those breakout runs come by way of "The Hawgs."
That's what Nature Coast coach Jamie Joyner calls his big offensive line that consists of four-year starter Tim LaRose, Brandon Nuby, J.J. Baker, Jake Myers and Anthony Gutierrez. They also get plenty of help from tight end Brady Ellison. In the past three games, the Sharks have rushed for 1,184 yards and 13 touchdowns.
"They have the ability to make the blocks up front," Joyner said. "We put a big emphasis on getting those blocks."
Joyner said the name "Hawgs" is an ode to the old Washington Redskins offensive line nicknamed "The Hogs." The Redskins were given the name by former line coach Joe Bugel because that line would "root around in mud."
