Siegel picked up win No. 1 on Friday with a 16-0 victory at Cookeville in a Region 2-6A contest.

It marks the Stars’ first shutout since blanking Smyrna 35-0 on Oct. 26. 2012. The Stars (1-4, 1-1) had four shutouts that season.

Cookeville outgained Siegel 200-177.

“We’ve been in every ballgame but one,” Siegel coach Greg Wyant said. “I’m proud of the way our defense played. They were as physical as I’ve seen them in a while.”

Kicker Jacob Smith, who was a Mr. Football Kicker of the Year finalist a year ago, hit three field goals in the win, including a 49-yarder.

“I’m not scared to let him kick between 50 and 52,” Wyant said. I knew 49 was in his range. He knocked the snot out of it.”

Walker rolling

Jayden Walker continues his big season for undefeated Donelson Christian Academy.

Walker had 24 carries for 200 yards and seven total touchdowns in the Wildcats’ 56-21 rout of King’s Academy.

“He makes my life a lot easier,” DCA coach Dennis Goodwin said.

Walker has 120 carries for 1,131 yards rushing with 13 rushing TDs for DCA (5-0).

“He just has explosive speed,” Goodwin said. “He’s such a threat on big plays. Obviously, our offense starts with him. The offensive line did a good job getting him a crease.”

Surprise shutout

Gordonsville collected its first shutout in three seasons with a 9-0 home win over perennial powerhouse Trousdale County.

Braxton Givens scored on a 9-yard TD run and finished with 173 yards. Chris Edwards scored on a safety. Gordonsville’s previous shutout came on Oct. 30, 2014 in a 29-0 win over Goodpasture.

The win over the Yellow Jackets was the Tigers’ first since they beat Trousdale 42-7 in 2012. Gordonsville went on to win the Class 1A state championship that season.

On Friday, Gordonsville held Trousdale County to 202 total yards. Gordonsville also picked off two interceptions and forced a fumble.

Big Red Ty

Tennessee recruit Ty Chandler helped Montgomery Bell Academy hold off McCallie 42-27. Chandler rushed for 194 yards on 25 carries and scored five touchdowns.

The Big Red has won four straight since falling to Hewitt-Trussville (Ala.) in Week 1.

Keeping the shield

Rossview running back Fred Orr rushed for 141 yards and three touchdowns to help Rossview beat Clarksville 42-7 and keep the Warfield Shield, which is awarded to the winner in the rivalry game.

Rossview has won the past four meetings, albeit the Red Hawks won last season after Clarksville was forced to forfeit after playing an ineligible player.
