Mr. Football 19

The 2019 Mr. Football race is tightening, and a handful of Williamson County football players made the cut to be finalists. 

Nolensville two-way star Tim Coutras will represent the county in 4A, where he is a finalist alongside Livingston Academy's Will McDonald and Greeneville's Ty Youngblood. 

Coutras, committed to Liberty next fall, leads the Nolensville defense. The Knights are advancing to the 4A quarterfinals Friday night at home against DeKalb County. 

BGA quarterback Nick Semptimphelter will represent the county in D-II AA as a finalist. He made the list with ECS' Austin Hill and Dietrick Pennington. 

The Wildcats lost at ECS Friday night in the second round of the playoffs. 

Semptimphelter set records for school passing yards and touchdowns during his time at BGA and will play at Bucknell next fall. 

For Kicker of the Year, Ravenwood's Luke Akers (set to play at UCLA) and Brentwood Academy's Paxton Perry made the list alongside Alcoa's Zeke Rankin. 

The finalists will be recognized and winners will be revealed Monday, Dec. 2, at a luncheon at Nissan Stadium. The Titans are sponsors of the event. 

"We are very appreciative of the Tennessee Titans for their continued support of these awards,” Bernard Childress, Executive Director of the TSSAA, said in the release. “Having the awards presented at Nissan Stadium will provide a very special atmosphere for these outstanding student-athletes.”
