Offensive, defensive, and kicking standout Zach Taylor, a senior, was named Most Valuable Player of the 2011 DeKalb County High School Football Team during the annual Awards Banquet held Saturday night at the Smithville First Baptist Church Life Enrichment Center building. The awards were sponsored by Liberty State Bank
The award was presented to Taylor by Coach Steve Trapp. Taylor helped lead the Tigers to an overall 8-3 record in 2011 including a home state play-off game. "He had statistics in almost every category that you can imagine," said Coach Trapp. "Kicking was definitely a weapon for us this year. He punted the ball. We didn't give up one punt return yard all year. Nobody caught a punt and returned it for one yard. A lot of that was him angling away and him executing the game plan we had. He did a great job in that category. And being able to kick field goals the way he did. In high school, it's definitely a weapon. He had four field goals of over forty yards with a long of forty seven yards and that is a huge weapon to have in high school. He had eight or ten touchbacks as well. But what he did on the offensive side of the ball and then what he did on the defensive side of the ball was a lot to talk about as well. He is definitely a player that deserves and has earned the MVP award," said Coach Trapp
Meanwhile, Heather Hughes, a senior, was named Most Valuable Cheerleader. The presentation was made by Cheer Coaches Amanda Fuller and Sonya House. "I am very proud of her as I am the whole squad. She is a wonderful cheerleader. You couldn't ask for a better girl. She is a 4.0 student and a wonderful person, very kind to others and extremely talented. For all those reasons she received the Most Valuable Cheerleader award," said Coach Fuller
