On Wednesday, December 5, 2018, Tennessee’s longest running scholar-athlete award will be presented to the 76th winner of the Hume Award. The award is given to those young men who exhibit excellence in sportsmanship, scholarship, and football ability.

Being nominated as a finalist of the Hume Award is an honor like no other high school award. Each Metro Nashville Public School that fields a football team send in a nominee that has been chosen by criteria that matches the mission of the civic organizations who now sponsor the award.

When one becomes one of the five finalist of the Hume Award, these young men will join a rare group of of former Hume nominees who understand that it is an honor to make the cut of five.

One of this year’s nominees be it Joseph Honeysucker, Hale Page, Sid Souksangouane, or Devon Starling will join the previous 75 and will become 76th Hume scholar-athlete to have his name inscribed on the historic trophy. The Hume Trophy is held on display at the school of the winner and is displayed for until the next award ceremony.

Hume Award History

In 1944, while he was watching a football game between two team s at West High School, Mr. William Hume who at the time, was a prominent Nashville attorney and civic leader, sparked a conversation with the Superintendent of Nashville City Schools Mr. W.A. Bass.

Mr. Hume envisioned an award for the talented young men who play football for Nashville City Schools. This idea intrigued Mr. Bass and thus became the Hume Award. When the Nashville City Schools and Davidson County School systems merged into the Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools System, those schools were included in the eligibility for the award.

Recipients of this award receive a plaque and a trophy which rotates to each winner’s school the year they accept the award. When Mr. Hume passed away, his wife Mrs. Hume loyally carried out his legacy and set up a trust fund in his name that has continuously provided the award to the winners.

D.J. Thorpe, Cane Ridge High School’s first ever Hume Award winner.

Each Metro school submits a nominee that is chosen by the executive principal and head football coach based on the player’s scholarship, talent and overall value to their team. Then, a committee made up of representatives of the host civic group, the president of Secondary Schools Principals Association, the president of the Middle Tennessee Football Officials Association, and the sports writers that cover high school football chose the five finalists and the overall winner from the group of selected nominees.

Since 1944, there have been 75 winners of this award and out of those, Overton High school has had fourteen winners, the most of any current high school. (Jack Chandler, 1974-75; Terry Corn, ‘77-’78; Chris Kennedy, ‘78-’79; Gary Kimball, ‘79-’80; Mike Beckham, ‘81-’82; Keith Victory, ‘83-’84; Bobby J. Griggs Jr., ‘92-’93; Jason Hamilton, ‘94-’95; Nate Daniel, ‘97-’98; Jacob Coleman, 2002-2003; Bryan John Hartzell, ‘08-’09; Andrew C. Montgomery, ‘10-’11; Jeffery Brandon Orr, ‘12-’13; and Kevin D.
