The Player of the week for Baltimore this time around is K’ron Hines of Baltimore Polytechnic Institute. Hines is a junior running back and free safety for the Engineers and is the leading rusher of the Baltimore City I region for the 2016 regular season. With over 400 yards rushing, and averaging 9.3 yards per carry, it is all too easy to see the impact Hines has left on Poly’s 2016 football career. While the Engineers did not make the playoffs this year. There will be more to come from K’ron and Poly.
