Week Five Hog Blog: The 2017 Iron Hog Watch List

Posted: Updated:

Dear PPR Viewers:

Last week the Prep Pigskin Report went public with the 2017 Silver Pigskin Watch List.  The PPR Player of the Year committee, now helmed by Chris Smith (aka @topdawg619), released the 62 players we are considering for high school football’s highest honor, the Prestigious Silver Pigskin. As mentioned in last week’s Hog Blog, that list will be fluid week to week. Names will go and re-appear before we name our Silver Pigskin finalists in mid-November.

But there is another important award to be handed out at the Dec. 12th Silver Pigskin Gala.  The Iron Hog is awarded to San Diego County’s top interior lineman.  In interest of equal time for all, we thought you would like to see the names of the lineman we have on the Iron Hog Watch List.

Same rules apply for this list.  If you think we left somebody off or misspelled a name, don’t hesitate to write, call or text.  Operators are standing by at ppr@kusi.com.  Make your case.  I can’t remember us making a mistake but it is theoretically possible.  Just like the Silver Pigskin Watch List, the Iron Hog Watch List will be fluid.  Performance, character, injuries and internal polling will create an ebb and flow that will see names come and go.

We’ll pick our 2017 Iron Hog winner in late November and go public with the decision Tuesday December 12th aboard the USS Midway Museum.  So scan the list and then make sure to watch the week 5 edition of the Prep Pigskin Report this Friday night at 10:30 pm.

In the meantime make sure to check out all our social media platforms, @KUSIPPR on Twitter, @KUSIPPR on Instagram, and KUSIPPR on Facebook. Also check out our YouTube page, KUSIPPR.  We’re closing in on 3 million views!

See you Friday,

Paul W. Rudy
