Mr. Football

The 2020 football regular season has come and gone, and the TSSAA is gearing up for the fall's Mr. Football awards. 

A handful of Williamson County football players have made the list for the semifinalists. 

The 36th edition of the awards are set for Dec. 8 at Nissan Stadium. The three finalists will be announced Nov. 17 by Titans announcer Mike Keith. 

"We are very excited and appreciative about being involved with the Tennessee Titans for the 14th consecutive year,” stated Bernard Childress, Executive Director of the TSSAA.

“They have helped make the recognition of these 50 student-athletes, their families, and schools possible. The sponsorship of the Tennessee Titans Mr. Football Awards and numerous contributions to high schools across the state since the team moved to Tennessee have meant a great deal to the member schools of the TSSAA.”

In Class 5A, one of the state's top prospects, Summit quarterback Destin Wade, was recognized as a semifinalist after his Spartans earned a region title. 

In 6A, Independence's Jaxson Campbell got a semis nod for his breakout senior year at QB, his first year at the spot, while Ravenwood tight end and Clemson commit Jake Briningstool got named for his strong year. 

In D-II AA, a pair of stud running backs, CPA's Langston Patterson and Lipscomb Academy's Alex Broome, made the cut. Patterson also excels on defense. 

In D-II AAA, Father Ryan QB and App. St. commit D.C. Tabscott was recognized as a semifinalist after he helped the Irish make the playoffs. 

For kicker of the year, Brentwood Academy's Teagan Lenderink was honored for his standout first season with the Eagles.
