Jake Hendricks

Pisgah senior wide receiver/defensive Jake Hendricks delivered several big moments Friday night to help the Eagles’ winning streak continue.

Hendricks made what Pisgah coach Luke Pruitt labeled as “game-changing plays” to end the first half and start the second half. Hendricks caught the go-ahead 18-yard touchdown  pass on the final play of the first half before running down a Douglas defender who had just made an interception and taking the ball away from him to prevent a Douglas score. 

For the game, Hendricks had two receptions for 78 yards on offense and two tackles, the forced and recovered fumble, an interception and a pass break-up.

For his efforts, Hendricks has been named the Jackson County Sentinel Prep Football Honor Roll Player of the Week.
