We congratulate the Cannon County Lions, DeKalb County Tigers, Gordonsville Tigers, Smith County Owls, and Watertown Purple Tigers for their outstanding accomplishments in 2021. We look for to continuing our long-standing support of the athletic programs within our communities.

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 DeKalb County High School senior Isaac Knowles.

Knowles was chosen based on his outstanding performance throughout the 2021 regular season, including being named DTC Sports Player of the Game for his performance against the Cannon County in Week 6 as the Tigers defeated the Lions 49-7.

Knowles was a threat from multiple positions on the field and lit up the stat sheet throughout the season. Offensively, he primarily lined up as a receiver where he caught 59 passes for 898 yards and six touchdowns. He also carried the ball eighty-three times for 711 yards on the ground with twelve touchdowns. Additionally, Knowles started at quarterback for two games due to injury and accrued 155 passing yards and two passing touchdowns. Knowles was the primary return specialist for the Tigers, gaining 472 return yards and one return touchdown. In total, Knowles tallied 2,111 all-purpose yards (211.1 yards per game) and 19 touchdowns. Knowles was responsible for 124 of DeKalb’s County 287 total points on the season.

Knowles was equally impressive as a ball hawk on the defensive side for DeKalb County. He registered 76 total tackles, three tackles for a loss, four pass breakups, seven interceptions, three forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and one defensive touchdown from his defensive back position. In a rare feat, Knowles scored a touchdown in five different ways during the season: passing, rushing, receiving, special teams, and defensive. Knowles’s efforts helped the Tigers earn a 6-4 overall record and a berth in the TSSAA playoffs.

In addition to Knowles’ award, DTC Communications also presented DeKalb County High School head football coach Steve Trapp and the DeKalb 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 Knowles and Coach Trapp during a pep rally at the school on November 5th, before their first-round playoff victory against East Hamilton.

“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 Isaac Knowles and the DeKalb County High School football team for their remarkable accomplishments throughout the 2021 high school football season.”

Knowles becomes the fourth DeKalb County Tiger to win the DTC Player of the Year Award, joining Lucas Phillips (2012), Steven Jennings (2014, 2015), and Axel Aldino (2020). Other past winners include Seth Price (2016) and Deramus Carey (2018) of Watertown, and Carson Hackett (2017), and John Ross Hord (2019) of Smith Co.

DTC Sports and DTC Communications are proud to recognize DeKalb County High School senior wide receiver/defensive back Isaac Knowles as the DTC Communications Player of the Year. We proudly congratulate him and the DeKalb County High School football team for their outstanding accomplishments in 2021.

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

The 2021 high school football season marked the thirteenth year of coverage for DTC Sports. During the season, DTC Sports broadcast twelve games live to DTC3 and the web. With the TSSAA playoffs entering the quarterfinals, DTC Sports will be unable to continue live coverage due to TSSAA restrictions and exclusivity agreements with the NFHS Network by member schools.

All five of our high schools made the TSSAA playoffs for the first time since we began coverage in 2009, and each team won their first round matchup and advanced to the second round. DTC Sports congratulates the Cannon County Lions, DeKalb County Tigers, Gordonsville Tigers, Smith County Owls, and Watertown Purple Tigers on their impressive seasons. We extend our best wishes to Gordonsville and Watertown as they continue into the quarterfinals of the TSSAA playoffs this week. DTC Sports also named Isaac Knowles the 2021 DTC Communications Player of the Year.

We invite our viewers to tune in each week to The Box Score with Terry Collins and “The Guru” Murphy Fair for the remainder of the playoffs for scores, highlights, and in-depth information each Thursday and Friday at 6:00 PM on DTC3. Also, be on the lookout for our upcoming announcement about high school basketball coverage for the 2021-2022 season coming soon as the season kicks off in the coming days.
