HERMITAGE, Tenn. — Daniel Boone and Sullivan East were named A.F. Bridges Divisional winners for East Tennessee in Class AAA and AA, respectively, last Friday.
The award, presented by the TSSAA, honors schools for their overall efforts to promote citizenship and sportsmanship at school and at athletic contests.
“Being recognized for one of these awards as school or individual should be seen as one of the highest honors in high school athletics in our state,” said Bernard Childress, executive director of the TSSAA. “Those who receive the awards truly reflect what high school athletics should be about, and that’s good sportsmanship and good citizenship.”
Also on Monday, Washington County’s Dale Ford was named the official of the year for District 1 by the TSSAA.
