Every week the Lake Highlands football coaching staff picks and awards a player or players for game-changing hits on the field. It is not necessarily the most violent hit, or the hardest hit, but a hit that make an impact on the game. The player gets his name on a baseball bat known as “The Big Stick,” and gets to keep that bat in his locker the entire week. The bat serves as a reminder that when the lights go on, it’s time to play physical football.
This week, the Lake Highlands coaching staff chose offensive lineman Jeffery Gebara. The 5-foot-10 230 lbs. senior was awarded The Big Stick after the Wildcats defeated Jesuit 29-20.
