Jermaine Hamilton & Edrico Gilliam, Lincoln Blue Tigers

Congratulations to the Interscholastic League Athletes of the Week (and HyVee Athletes of the Week): Lincoln Prep senior wide receiver Edrico Gilliam and junior linebacker Jermaine Hamilton for their performances in the District Semi-Final win versus Excelsior Springs.

Gilliam led the productive Blue Tigers receiving corps with 5 receptions for 92 yards and a touch­down, as well as a key block on the Blue Tigers kick return touchdown to start the 2nd half. Hamilton, meanwhile, led the Blue Tigers defense with 20-plus tackles, a forced fumble, and a blocked punt in the game. Hamilton also added a rushing touchdown in the first half.
