Tigerville, S.C. – North Greenville’s Ashton Heard brought home the first award of the season for NGU football as he was voted “Hero of the Week” by Hero Sports following a week long fan-poll.
Heard rushed for 182-yards and a touchdown last Thursday in NGU’s 24-23 win over West Alabama. It is the second such honor for the tailback who earned the award last season following a 300-yard rushing performance against Tusculum College.
Heard and the Crusaders will travel to Hickory, North Carolina Saturday afternoon for a showdown with Lenoir-Rhyne. Kickoff is scheduled for 7pm.
