The 2010 Seymour Eagles Football banquet was held recently at Riverside Plantation in Sevierville.
Head Seymour football Coach Jim Moore was in charge.
The banquet flowed well and was a very pleasant experience. The food was good and speakers did an excellent job made up of Coach Moore and his assistants Cotton Julian (wide receivers), Josh Turner (offensive line), Steve Gordon (running backs), Jon McBrayer (quarterbacks), Tony Stinnett and Darrel Lauderdale (defensive coordinators), Matt Shular (inside linebackers) and Gary Stinnett (outside linebackers).
Also present was athletic director Gary Householder, principal Greg Clark and school board member Charles Temple, along with their wives.
The Seymour Cheerleading team was present and each girl was given a rose by coaches Amy Humble and Amanda Atchley.
Awards for the players were presented by class, starting with the sophomores, then juniors and seniors.
Each senior was presented their jersey by Coach Lauderdale. There were a total of 16 senior jerseys presented as each boy came to the front of the room to receive it.
The Academic Awards were presented by Coach Tony Stinnett to 7 players. To qualify the athlete must have a 3.0 average or higher. The top award was given to senior Cory Clark who had an outstanding 4.0 average.
The Ryan Keck award was presented by Coach Gary Stinnett to senior Kevin Kennedy. The award exemplifies outstand attitude. The late Ryan Keck was a student and football player for Seymour a few years ago.
The Horizon Award was presented by Coach Moore to Hayden Brooks, Trevor Wallace, Kevin Taylor and Corey Heard (sophomores). This award is for players who have displayed a lot of promise and potential for the future.
