Templeton Hardy

Football terminology can be misleading, such is the case with defensive tackles which typically do less tackling than any position on defense, however there is a young man from the Magnolia State who is living up to the description of that position in a very big way.

Meet Templeton Hardy, an imposing 6-foot-4, 279-pound D-lineman, who amassed an amazing 105 solo stops and 43 assists for North Panola High School in Sardis, Miss., as a junior.
