Senior

» Height/weight: 6-4, 195 pounds

» School: Edgewood

» Position: Quarterback

» Statistics: Hawthorne was 13-for-23 passing for 264 yards with one touchdown and added 15 carries for 127 yards and three touchdowns in the Wildcats’ 49-18 win over Evangel Christian.

» Highlight: Hawthorne said his highlight moment came on a broken play, when he turned what would have been a sack in to a first-down run.

“I think it’s when I got a little pressure on me and spun and somebody grabbed my jersey and I ripped them off,” Hawthorne said. “Then I pump-faked my throw and got the guy in the air and turned like a 20-yard loss to a 10, 15-yard gain.”

» Up next: Edgewood hosts Springwood at 7 p.m. Friday.
