kick returner: Pep' was special, said Bessemer City football coach Larry Boone, according to NOW Magazine. He had skills and talent that you just can't replicate. One would be hard-pressed to find a role Jaquaylen Pep Hardin didn't fill for Bessemer City a season ago. His graduation left the Yellow Jackets with plenty of holes to fill - quarterback, defensive back, punt and kick returner among them. You have to pound the rock, you have to be able to run the football, Boone said. While it'll take more than one young man to fill his many roles, Bessemer City is sticking with a formula that has brought it so much success through the years. (www.immigrantscanada.com).
