Once Deric Hyman started running downhill he became a heat-seeking Rocket, or at least a tackle-seeking one.
The Shelby County junior middle linebacker has been a standout this season for the Rockets, especially in the past month.
“The last four games he’s played exceptionally well,” Shelby County Coach Todd Shipley said.
The Rockets (2-8) will need that to continue tonight, when they travel to undefeated John Hardin (10-0) in the first round of the Class 5A state playoffs. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. in Elizabethtown.
