Hackett receives DTC “Player of the Year” award

Each season, DTC Sports selects an outstanding football player from the DTC service area to receive the DTC Communications Player of the Year Award. This year, the honor went to Smith County High School senior quarterback, Carson Hackett.

Carson was chosen based on his outstanding performance throughout the 2017 regular season, in which he completed 152 of 212 passes, for 1,886 yards and 23 touchdowns. Additionally, Carson rushed for 669 yards on 115 carries – an average of 5.8 yards per carry – with seven more touchdowns. In addition to his 2,555 yards of total offense and 30 touchdowns, Carson also recorded 43 total tackles on defense, logged one fumble recovery and one interception. His efforts, combined with that of his teammates, led the Smith County Owls to a 7-3 overall record in the regular season and a 4-1 mark in Region 4-3A, which produced Smith County’s first Region Championship in football since the 2011 season.

In addition to Carson’s individual award, DTC Communications also presented Smith County High School head football coach Mike Dickerson and the Owl football program a check for $500 for having this year’s DTC Communications Player of the Year. Tom Duggin of DTC Sports made the presentations to Hackett and Coach Dickerson, Friday afternoon, November 3, during a pep rally prior to the Owls’ playoff opener with Sweetwater.

This year marked the second time a Smith County High School football player had won the DTC Player of the Year award, joining former Owl running back and linebacker, Jalen Manning, who won the first-ever award. Other past winners include Lucas Phillips and Steven Jennings of DeKalb County, and Seth Price of Watertown.

DTC Sports and DTC Communications are proud to recognize Smith County High School senior quarterback Carson Hackett as the 2017 DTC Communications Player of the Year, and proudly congratulate both Carson and the Smith County High School football team for their outstanding accomplishments this season.

DTC Communications is proud to continue their long-standing support of its communities and the athletic programs within these communities.

Jackson County hosted the 7A District playoffs this year.  Smith County Lady Owls went in as the number one seed with a record of 4-0 in district play.  Tuesday night Smith County faced Cannon County.  Cannons goalie had impressively improved since their last meeting on Smith County’s Senior Night.  It still was not enough to hold off the Lady Owls.  Smith County would win the game 3-0, with goals by Delaney Eldred and Katy Wright in the first half.  Brennan Rigsby sealed the deal with her goal in the second half.  This win placed Smith COunty in the District Championship game.  Jackson County then beat York to find their place in the championship game as well.
Thursday night, Smith County and Jackson County were both excited about their district title hopes.  The first half was a defensive battle.  The Lady Owls dominated their territory but the strong showing of the Blue Devil goalie was not having it.  The half ended with a tie of 0-0.  With a district title handing in the balance, both teams went into the second half with purpose.  The breakthrough came when Katy Wright found her way through the Blue Devil defense and walked the ball to the net, then send it flying to the right beating the goalie.  This set the stage and pumped up the bench, the fans, and the squad on the pitch.  Maija Harrelson would be the next Lady Owl scorer.  Jacksons goalie came out to meet a shot, lost control of the ball and Maija rushed to connect with it, sending it into the back of the net uncontested.  Later Cayce Forrester kicked the ball into the heavens, it landed inches outside the net.  Before Mallory Dillon could kick it in the goalie, on the ground, twisted around to kick it clear.  Mallory battled with three Lady Blue Devils for control and finally was able to kick it out to Cayce. Cayce then fired it hard through traffic, under the diving goalie, to meet with the back of the net.  With less than ten minutes left in the game, Jackson County just could not recover.  With the final score of 3-0, the Smith County Lady Owls soccer team found themselves making history.  For the first time in SCHS history, the Lady Owls soccer team won the District Title!!
After the game District awards were handed out.  First-year head coach Nicholus Bussell earned District Coach of the Year.  Maija Harrelson earned District MVP  and we had six more make it onto the All-district team:  Cayce Forrester, Kayla Starling, Kaytlin Patterson, Samantha Lewis, Allyssa West and Kristen Shoulders.
The Lady Owls are now hosting the Regional Tournament for the first time which starts on Tuesday, October 17th at 6 pm,  The Lady Owls will face East Robertson Lady Indians.
