Shining Stars: Stockstill, Reed, Wyant earn 7-AAA superlatives



Siegel had the best season in the school’s 10-year history in 2012.

The Stars finished with an undefeated regular season as well as the school’s first Class 6A state semifinal appearance. Siegel also racked up multiple superlatives for the All-District 7-AAA team, which is announced today.

Siegel senior quarterback Brent Stockstill was named the District 7-AAA MVP. Junior teammate Harrison Reed was named the Special Teams MVP for the second consecutive season.

Riverdale senior Dillon Woodruff was named the Offensive MVP for the second straight season and Blackman junior Antonio Allen was named the Defensive MVP. And Oakland junior lineman Austin Barrett was named the Lineman MVP.

Siegel coach Greg Wyant was named the District 7-AAA Coach of the Year.

His season may best be remembered for throwing for 376 yards against Maryville in the state semifinals with a torn ACL in his right knee.

Reed led Rutherford County kickers for the second straight season. He had 70 PATs during the season and nine field goals for 97 points scored. He was a dangerous weapon on kickoff coverage with his ability to place his kickoffs in the corner of the end zone.

Woodruff completed 95-of-172 passes for 1,306 yards with six touchdowns for the Warriors this season. He also ran for 500 yards and 11 touchdowns in his first year back after tearing his ACL in his right knee.

Riverdale finished the season 9-4, falling to Siegel in the 6A quarterfinals.

Barrett finished with 72 tackles for the Patriots as a defensive tackle. He also had three sacks and an interception for Oakland. Oakland ended the year 6-5, losing to Siegel in the first round of the 6A playoffs.

In District 9-A, Eagleville junior Ryan Jordan was named that league’s Offensive MVP after completing 119-of-199 passes for 2,090 yards with 23 TDs and just four interceptions.

He also had three rushing touchdowns.

Eagleville finished the season 8-5 this season, reaching its second consecutive Class 1A state quarterfinal.

However, this year Eagleville’s success came despite being hit with injuries early in the season.
