4 ET players named ‘Mr. Football’
(TSSAA) Tennessee’s best high school football players for 2013 were recognized at the Tennessee Titans Mr. Football Awards luncheon hosted by the Tennessee Titans. Over 500 people, including the honorees, their families, coaches, school administrators and members of the media from all parts of the state, attended the 2013 luncheon at the Embassy Suites Hotel & Conference Center. “This is such an outstanding honor for all 33 of the young men recognized today at the Tennessee Titans Mr. Football Awards,” said Bernard Childress, Executive Director of the TSSAA. “They were here not only due to their athletic ability that they displayed on the field throughout the season, but just as much for their outstanding character and academic achievements.” High school head coaches and members of the media nominated the finalists. A committee of statewide sports writers selected winners based on performance in the 2013 regular season. Academics and character were also taken into consideration. The awards were presented to the top back and lineman in each of the five classifications of the Tennessee Secondary Schools Athletic Association. The top kickers in the state were also recognized. There were three finalists in this category, regardless of their school’s classification. The Titans became sponsors of the Mr. Football Awards in 2007.

High School football scores Week 9
Sequoyah 35 Clinton 8: The visiting Chiefs sucked all the drama out of Senior Night and washed away the Dragons' playoff hopes as they built a 28-0 halftime lead and cruised. The night started badly for CHS (3-6) as Tyler Thackerson's first pass of the game was picked off and returned for a TD by Alex Stakely--who would go on to pick off a second pass later in the game and run for two scores on offense. Thackerson equaled his season total heading in to the game with 3 INTs, his first game with multiple picks this season. The senior-lade Chiefs improved to 7-2 on the season.
Anderson County 43 Halls 13: Matt Fox rushed for 138 yards and 3 TDs and Tyler Hicks had 203 yards passing and threw a pair of TDs as the Mavericks did their part to make Thursday's showdown at Oak Ridge mean something. If AC wins, they win the D3AAA regular season title outright.
Oak Ridge 24 Central 13: The Wildcat defense held the Bobcats' offense in check and the offense played a ball-control game of keepaway as Oak Ridge set up a big match-up at home against Anderson County Thursday. If OR can win, they will still need Powell to beat Campbell County the next night to win the D3AAA crown.
Maryville 51 Bearden 0: The Rebels dominated again and can wrap up another D4AAA title Friday with a win at Farragut Friday.

Oak Ridge 21 Powell 14...The Wildcats scored 21 unanswered points in the 4th quarter to rally for a key win on the road. Jaylin Henderson threw three touchdown passes for Oak Ridge, which improved to 6-2, 5-1.
Fulton 51 CAK 17...The Tornadoes crushed the Warriors as they rolled up 325 rushing yards on the night and the defense forced 4 interceptions.

He was taken to UT Medical Center, where he underwent a four-hour long surgery on Saturday night to repair the damage and place a rod in his back. While his football career is over, doctors say that he should walk again and that he is making good progress in his recovery.)

High School football wrap-up, week 7
Central 63 Clinton 60...Austin Kirby threw a Hail Mary into a pack of Clinton defenders and his intended receiver, JaJuan Stinson, somehow came down with the ball and outraced Dragon defenders to the pylon as time expired to life Central to the improbable last-second victory in an absolutely classic high school football game. The two teams combined for 18 touchdowns, 123 points and over 1100 yards of total offense. Clinton QB Tyler Thackerson went 32 of 47 passing for a school single-game record 504 yards and five TDs. Four of his scoring strikes went to Drake Powell, who set a single game school record with 15 catches for a school record 290 yards. Aaron Bailey caught the other TD among his nine catches on the night. Central's Stinson scored 4 TDs and generated 284 yards of total offense. The Bobcats jumped out to an early 14-0 lead but Clinton tied it at 14-14 early in the second quarter. Central led 35-26 at halftime and 49-46 after three quarters. The 4th quarter will go down in the history of both programs as one of the--if the not the--craziest 12 minutes of football ever played. Clinton took its first lead of the game on Isiah Vibbert's 53-yard return of an interception for a touchdown but the Bobcats answered with a 21-yard pass from Kirby to Riley Gaul. After a Clinton pass on 4th and goal from the nine-yard line was tipped incomplete, the Dragons forced Central into a punt but the snap sailed over the head of the Bobcat punter and into the end zone, where Shane Hooks fell on it with 22.5 seconds left and the Dragons with a 60-57 lead. Central got the ball to their own 41-yard line with 10.5 seconds remaining and that is when Kirby and Stinson hooked up for their long game-winning score. Scroll down on this page for the complete box score and more game notes from this instant classic.
Anderson County 61 Catholic 40...Matt Fox set a school record for the second time this season as he rushed for 402 yards and 4 touchdowns as the Mavericks flexed their muscles at home.
Oak Ridge 56 Karns 28...Oak Ridge's Isiah Jones ran for three TDs and the Wildcats cruised at home.
Maryville 28 Lenoir City...The Panthers hung tough but Maryville won its 89th straight District game and gave coach George Quarles his 200th career caching victory.

Campbell County 41 Clinton 40...The Dragons lost for the first time ever at Campbell County (17 all-time trips) in a back-and-forth thriller. Clinton fell to 2-3, 1-3 D3AAA despite 358 passing yards and 4 touchdowns (including three to Drake Powell for a second straight week). Powell left the game in the fourth quarter with a rib injury but managed to haul in 13 catches for the second time this season for 120 yards. Aaron Bailey had nine catches for 120 yards and the other Dragon receiving TD. Clinton outgained the Cougars 429-332 but the difference in the game ended up being Clinton missing two extra point attempts and Campbell County missing only one. Clinton took its first lead at 40-34 but Trey Torres caught a 70-yard TD from Ethan Jeffers and Gustavo Rosas converted the extra point that gave the Cougars a 41-40 lead. Jeffers went 12 of 19 for 224 yards and 3 scores.
Maryville 49 Hardin Valley 0...The Rebel defense held HVA to 80 yards of total offense and handed the Hawks their first loss of the season. John Garrett threw for 238 yards and two scores, both to Cody Carroll, and ran for another as Shawn Prevo added 89 yards on the ground a touchdown.
Anderson County 49 Karns 14...Tyler Hicks threw 2 touchdown passes and ran for 2 more as AC built a 42-0 halftime lead and cruised in their home opener. Matt Fox ran for a TD and Jackson Campbell returned an interception for a TD. AC outgained winless Karns 458-223.

High School Football Week 3 Scores
Clinton 38 Gibbs 19...Tyler Thackerson threw for 313 yards and five touchdowns including three 10-yard passes to Drake Powell and the Dragons evened their record at 2-2. Aaron Watson and Zach Jones were the other beneficiaries of Thackerson TD passes. The sophomore QB also ran for 55 yards. Clinton's offense was efficient all night long in building a 22-7 halftime lead and even though the Eagles (1-3) tried to keep it interesting, the Dragons put the game away late. Clinton made its first and to date, only field goal attempt of the year, a 22-yarder off the foot of Wes Campbell. The Dragons outgained Gibbs 430-311 and committed zero turnovers on the night while committing only 4 penalties. Travist Patrick blocked an extra point and picked off a pass for CHS.
Anderson County 26 Campbell County 21...AC rallied for a go-ahead touchdown pass from Tyler Hicks to Garrett Johnson with less than 7 minutes to play Friday and the Mavericks held off CCHS's late charge to improve to 4-0. Johnson also returned an interception 50 yards for a TD and threw one on a trick play to QB Tyler Hicks. Hicks also ran for a score. The Maverick defense intercepted the Cougars three times.
Oak Ridge 37 Halls 6...The Wildcats overcame a sluggish first half and beat Halls to improve to 2-1 on the season. The Oak Ridge defense held Halls to 136 total yards.

High School football Week 2 Scores
