After a banner year on the gridiron, Brentwood Academy kicker Teagan Lenderink has been honored as the best in the state.
He was chosen as the TSSAA's Kicker of the Year Tuesday at the socially distant version of the annual Mr. Football awards.
Lenderink, a one-year Eagle, was a crucial part of the team's 10-0 regular season run that ended just short of a state title berth.
The kicker went 20/28 on the season, with his longest field goal coming from 54 yards. He was one successful kick shy of tying former BA kicker James Wilhoit's single-season state record of 21 field goals.
He was in a category with Trey Turk of Oakland and Connor Wood of Lexington.
Four fellow Williamson County-area athletes, Ravenwood tight end Jake Briningstool (6A), Summit quarterback Destin Wade (5A), CPA running back/linebacker Langston Patterson (D-II AA) and Father Ryan QB D.C. Tabscott (D-II AAA) were finalists in their respective classes.
“This is such an outstanding honor for all 30 of the young men recognized today at the Tennessee Titans Mr. Football Awards,” said Bernard Childress, Executive Director of the TSSAA, said in a release.
“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.”
