The Little Caesars Player of the Week – Seth Hamblin
11 months ago Andrew Luberda 0
County Line Preps is pleased to have a sponsorship agreement with specific Little Caesars locations in Queen Creek and Coolidge.
Little Caesars, home of the Hot-‘N-Ready pizza, will sponsor the Player of the Week and Player of the Month awards as part of our agreement.
Each week, CountyLinePreps.com will announce the Player of the Week, accompanied by a Q&A with that week’s winner.
The Player of the Week will receive a gift certificate, redeemable for a two-liter bottle of soda, a pepperoni or cheese pizza, and an order of Crazy Bread, that will be honored at one of the two aforementioned Little Caesars locations.
Additionally, the Player of the Week automatically qualifies for the Player of the Month Award, which will be determined by a poll that will be posted on our County Line Preps Twitter account during the final week each month.
The Player of the Month will receive a plaque and a $25 Little Caesars gift card.
Now that we’ve provided details of both awards, we are pleased to announce this week’s Little Caesars Player of Week:
Benjamin Franklin – Senior
Hamblin had two defensive touchdowns in the Chargers’ 38 – 8 victory against Safford last Friday night.
The Chargers’ senior captain returned a punt blocked by teammate Powell Skiba 40 yards for a touchdown in addition to a 35-yard pick-six, both coming in the first quarter.
Hamblin also had seven tackles in the game and caught a 21-yard pass on offense.
Not a bad performance at all.
As a matter of fact, it was so good that it earned Hamblin our Little Caesars Player of the Week honor.
CLP: The Chargers’ offense is unique – a wing-style attack. What makes it so successful and why do teams find difficulty in stopping it?
SH: Our offense is unique but simple. Our goal is to get as many players to the point of attack, whether it be pulling guards or sending fullbacks and wings. Our offense is meant to get three yards every play. Our coach always repeats the old saying, “Three yards and a cloud of dust.” Zac and Chandler are also very skilled and hard runners, which makes it very successful.
CLP: Your team has won seven-straight games. What’s been the key to the consistency?
SH: Our offense may be interesting, but our defense keeps us winning games. Having 11 hats flying to the ball helps our defense be successful. Another key to the success we’re having is discipline. With a consistent, but not explosive offense, a penalty or turnover could set us back and lead to the end of a drive.
CLP: What are our plans after graduation?
SH: After graduation I will serve a two-year mission for my church and attend college.
CLP: What is your greatest athletic memory at Benjamin Franklin High School?
SH: It is hard to choose one memory when surrounded by such good players and coaches. If I had to choose one, it would probably be our overtime win over Coolidge my junior year.
CLP: What is your favorite sports movie and why?
SH: I really enjoy When the Game Stands Tall because it shows how to deal with defeat when all you know is success.
CLP: Name one person you’d most like to meet and why?
SH: It would be awesome to catch a pass from one of my childhood heroes, Payton Manning.
