Trousdale County senior Davis Stewart was presented with a Scholar-Athlete Award at last week’s Middle Tennessee Chapter National Football Foundation awards banquet.
The 54th annual banquet recognized seniors from 63 Midstate high schools and seven universities for achievement both on the football field and in the classroom.
Stewart was presented with his award by former Tennessee Titan Eddie George, as well as former NFL players Kelly Holcomb and Brenard Wilson.
Stewart was a four-year letterman for Trousdale County, playing running back and free safety. He was an All-Region player as a senior and served as one of the Yellow Jackets’ captains.
Stewart also will be an Honors graduate from TCHS in May and has a 3.48 GPA. He is Sergeant at Arms of the senior class and is a member of the Beta Club.
He was joined at the banquet by his parents, Jeff & Catherine Stewart, TCHS coach Blake Satterfield, Director of Schools Clint Satterfield and “Voice of the Yellow Jackets” Jerry Richmond.
“Davis Stewart exemplifies what a true student-athlete looks like from all angles. He is a great football player who consistently improved each year,” Blake Satterfield said.
“He made a commitment first in the 2019 offseason in both the classroom and the weight room. This carried over to the 2019 season where Davis became a starter and eventually received honors such as Player of the Week and being placed on the 2019 All-Region team. Davis is an even better person who was a joy to coach and was our team captain who always led by example.”
Also recognized at the banquet was longtime Cumberland University baseball coach Woody Hunt, who received the Fred Russell Distinguished American Award, which is the top honor given by the organization.
