The Port Neches-Groves Indians host their first round playoff game Friday.

PNG earned the second seed in District 9-5A Division II by going 6-1 in district play this season.

The team enters the postseason on a six game winning streak thanks, in part, to the stellar play of its defense. Over that stretch, PNG has not allowed any teams to score more than 30 points.

Hinton leads the unit in interceptions and has no issue with coming up to make a tough tackle.

Kickoff against Montgomery is set for 7 p.m. Friday at PNGHS.

The Athlete of the Week award is sponsored by Energy Country Ford.
