Congratulations to Smyrna linebacker Tevin Shipp for being named the Rutherford County Defensive Player of the Week.
Shipp, a linebacker, recorded three solo tackles, recovered a fumble, and picked off a pass in the Bulldogs’ 43-10 win over Wilson Central on Friday night.
Shipp also plays offense, and caught a pass for three yards.
Smyrna (2-0) has a stiff road test when it travels to Christ Presbyterian Academy this week. CPA upset powerful Ensworth, 21-20, in overtime on Friday.
