Lineman of the Week

Each week this football season, Jackson EMC will honor an outstanding local high school student-athlete as a Lineman of the Week. 

Representatives from Jackson EMC, including one of our linemen, will travel to a local high school to recognize an outstanding player. Coaches from each school will select an offensive or defensive lineman who excels both on and off the field. Recipients will receive a Lineman of the Week plaque from Jackson EMC and a commemorative football. 

For the 2019 football season, Jackson EMC is starting the Lineman of the Week program in Jackson, Barrow and Madison counties. Selected recipients will be featured on Jackson EMC’s Facebook page and in print through Mainstreet Newspapers.
