Today we begin a new article featuring a player, coach or team that deserves recognition for their outstanding contributions on the field of play, in the classroom or in the community. If you would like to nominate someone to be featured on our website and on our radio show email me stating their accomplishments with a photo and send your recommendation to me at: We will pick one person per week to feature so make sure you check out our website to see who that person might be. Hopefully we can help promote those student athletes who might not get the recognition that others do but are just as important to their teams as the 5-star athlete that is talked about every week. All sports, girls and boys will be considered. Our first Spotlight player of the week is Bryce Currie of Smith County High. A terrific runner and hard-hitting linebacker Bryce has been an important part of the football team’s success the last four years. Coach Matt Dyer says, “Bryce is a player you love to coach. He is a leader on and off the field who expects the best from himself and his teammates on every play. He is an excellent student athlete with a GPA just under 4.0 with a high ACT score. He is a young man who everyone loves including the little kids. I just wish I could coach him four more years.” Below is a list of just some of his accomplishments :·   Bryce and his teammates went undefeated in Class 3A, Region 5 with a 4-0 record and finished the regular season 9-1 .·    The Owls made it all the way to the quarterfinals of the playoffs before losing in the quarterfinals to eventual state runner up Nashville East.

·       Ran for over 2000 yards in two years as a fullback.
