In the playoff hunt

Sandy Creek grad and former Ole Miss standout Mike Hilton has played in all 16 regular-season games for the Pittsburgh Steelers at defensive back, starting four.

He recorded 48 solo tackles, two interceptions and four sacks, three of which came in a Christmas Day win over the Houston Texans.

The Steelers earned a first-round bye in the AFC playoffs and will host the Jacksonville Jaguars this Sunday.
