Lineman of the Week
Max Boyd, Roswell DT 6’0″ 260 lbs. Boyd helped lead his very talented Roswell Hornets to victory over the reigning 2x state champions, the Colquitt County Packers. Roswell avenged a loss from the state finals last year in the Georgia Dome in dominating fashion in a final score of 34-3 in front of a packed house at Ray Manus Stadium. The number #1 ranked Hornets are loaded with Big-5 level talent but one players performance stood out for head coach John Ford – Max Boyd. Boyd, who is a team captain was a constant headache for the visiting Packers from Moultrie. From his DT position, he had 12 tackles, 8 assists, 6 TFL’s, 6 QB pressures, one sack, and one forced fumble. Those are impressive numbers from a linebacker, but from a DT those are worthy of the Touchdown Club of Atlanta’s Lineman of the Week for Friday September 9, 2016.
