DL John Hewlett, Thomas Heyward


(WSAV) – John Hewlett may have formed a fearsome duo with teammate Therion Cannon on the offensive line, but the senior star is getting a spotlight for his work on the defensive end.

Named SCISA Defensive Player of the Year by Lowcosports.com, quarterbacks facing Hewlett probably lost a lot of sleep before gameday. The defensive lineman put up a stat line that makes you do a double-take: 62 tackles, 28 tackles for loss, 12 sacks, and 21 QB pressures.
