Male Bulldog
of the Week

LB Hayden Hill (Sophomore, Flowood)

Hill was all over the field in a 45-7 win over Southwest Mississippi. He had 13 total tackles, including three in the backfield for losses. One of those was a sack.

Also nominated: 

Chase Kaiser, a sophomore from Natchez, and Andrew Zielinski, a freshman from Ocean Springs helped lead No. 7 Gulf Coast to victory in the first MACCC tournament of the season. They both shot 2-under to finish tied for second, and the Bulldogs finished one shot ahead of No. 5 Meridian.

Michael Bell, a sophomore midfielder from Jackson, scored the opening goal in a 2-0 win over Hinds to open MACCC play.

Cam Thomas, a sophomore running back from Picayune, had 93 yards on 16 carries to lead Gulf Coast’s rushing attack in a 45-7 win over Southwest Mississippi. He scored a 39-yard touchdown and averaged nearly 6 yards per carry.

Jonathan Harris, a sophomore wide receiver from Hattiesburg, broke open the game against Southwest with a 75-yard punt return just before halftime. He averaged 30.8 yards on four returns, and leads the country in average returns. He also had three catches for 32 yards.

Grayson Nester, a freshman from Flowood, combined to record a team shutout of Hinds in a 2-0 win to open Gulf Coast’s MACCC schedule. He made two saves, but helped jumpstart the Bulldogs’ offense with his distribution.


Female Bulldog
of the Week

DEF Tiffany Beasley (Freshman, Ocean Springs)
