East Central free safety tackles Sun Herald honor

Special to the Sun Herald

East Central coach Seth Smith said free safety Andrew Seward “is as good as any defensive player I’ve coached.”

The senior lived up to those words in the Hornets’ 56-12 victory over Moss Point on Friday night.

Seward had 11 total tackles, three tackles for loss and interception for the unbeaten Hornets (6-0, 2-0 Region 8-4A).

Seward had 172 total tackles and 14 tackles for loss and made the Sun Herald All-South Mississippi team last season.
