Gamecocks "Hot Dog Heros" for the NCSU Game

This year we are going to give a "hot dog hero" award after each game to a offense player and a defense player. This is much like a MVP type thing...We will steer clear of the obvious choices at times, for example - Eric Norwood was a beast last night with what should have been a fumble recovery and two huge sacks. Not to mention quite a few good hits but versus NC State last night the LOHD team felt like the following are the "hot dog heros" for week 1:

# 98 Devin Taylor
4 solo tackles, 2 assisted tackles, 3 tackles were for a loss of 11 yds, 1 forced fumble, 1 blocked punt and 1 sack for a loss of 8 yds. In the first ten minutes of Devin Taylor’s collegiate career, he had a blocked punt and forced fumble. He and # 16 Shaq Wilson were great examples of what LOHD refers to as playing with "fire in their belly."

Had to look hard for this stud. Could go with Maddox for the TD run but decided to go with Tori Gurley who had 4 catches for 34 yards. I know not stellar but again not much of the offense was stellar. Tori and Weslye looked good amongst the receiving corps last night.

***Also thanks to that referee that did not call the face mask penalty on the late NCSU return.
