#2 and #7
Hayes Bennett and J.C. Garrard - Remembering Pullen Avant & Cole Whitfield
Two seniors have been selected to wear the #2 and the #7 in recognition of their commitment, sportsmanship and integrity. These words are the ones that best describe Cole Whitfield and Pullen Avant. This year, PA’s football staff has honored Hayes Bennett and J.C. Garrard with the privilege of wearing these numbers.
An outstanding athlete, Pullen played baseball, basketball and football. He will be remembered for his dedication to sports, his respect for his teammates, and his love of Pillow Academy.
Cole was a 2017 graduate of Pillow Academy, where he was a star athlete in soccer, football and baseball. Cole often shared his knowledge and his love of the games. He was quick with encouragement for his teammates. Cole was recognized many times for his athletic ability in many sports.
This honor was first awarded in 2021. Nelson Hodges was selected to wear the #2 and the #7 was worn by Walker Wood.
PA is extremely proud of Hayes and J.C. – Congratulations to both of you.
