Each week, we have the chance to recognize the local talent in our Middle and East Tennessee communities. As the school year comes to a close, many of our senior athletes are choosing to continue their sports careers at local colleges and universities. This week’s group of competitors includes three seniors, all of whom have signed to join sports teams at schools in the southeast.
