Cannon County's Tucker Kyne Named DTC Communications Player of the Year


Each season, DTC Sports selects an outstanding player from the DTC service area for the DTC Communications Player of the Year. This year, the honor went to standout Cannon County High School senior Tucker Kyne.

Kyne was chosen based on his exceptional performance throughout the 2023 regular season, including being named DTC Sports Player of the Game for his performance against Marion County in Week 10.

Kyne showcased his versatility and dominance in both the offensive and defensive positions. Offensively, he primarily lined up as a tight end, where he caught the ball 33 times for 652 receiving yards and seven touchdowns and added five uncredited receptions in two-point conversions in the regular season.

On the defensive end, Kyne’s explosive first step and ability to disrupt the backfield have earned him the respect of teammates and opponents. He registered 27 tackles for loss, three sacks, and had two fumble recoveries returned for a touchdown from his defensive line spot. With multiple collegiate offers on the table, Kyne is poised to take his game to the next level, as several Division I college football programs have recognized his talent and potential. His decision on where to commit will be eagerly anticipated by fans and recruiters alike.

In addition to Kyne’s award, DTC Communications also presented Cannon County High School head football coach Matt Daniel and the Cannon County High School Football Program a check for $500 for having this year’s DTC Communications Player of the Year. Justin Mauldin of DTC Sports made the presentations to Kyne and Coach Daniel during a visit to the school after the conclusion of their season.


“DTC Communications is proud to be a community partner with the local schools in our service area, and we are equally proud to recognize the accomplishments of the outstanding student-athletes within the area,” said Chris Townson, CEO of DTC Communications. “I want to personally congratulate both Tucker Kyne and the Cannon County High School football team for their remarkable accomplishments throughout the 2023 high school football season.”

This recognition is a testament to Kyne’s impact on the field as he becomes the first Cannon County Lion in program history to win the DTC Player of the Year Award.

DTC Sports and DTC Communications are proud to recognize Cannon County High School senior tight end/defensive end Tucker Kyne as the DTC Communications Player of the Year. We proudly congratulate him and the Cannon County High School football team on their well-deserved accolades.
