Three Cheatham County senior football players were recognized on March 5 by the Middle Tennessee Chapter of the National Football Foundation.
The players — Daulton Rose from Harpeth High School, Bryce Beamer from Cheatham County Central High School and Adam Clanton from Sycamore High School — were among the 56 high school seniors to attend the chapter’s annual awards dinner at the Music City Sheraton in Nashville.
The National Football Foundation honors scholar-athletes annually, with 120 chapters in 47 states, and over 12,000 members nationwide. The Middle Tennessee Chapter was founded in 1961.
Athletes recognized display winning characteristics, including dedication to academics, service to their community and leadership.
The local honorees are selected by their football coaches and school administration. The winners receive scholarships.
Rose, the son of Torrey and Nakia Rose, was a three-year letterman and two-time team captain for the Indians.
He has received several honors, including All-District, Summer Workout Award, Team Captain Award and Indian Award.
“Daulton is extremely smart, responsible and faithful,” said Harpeth coach Doug Loope. “He has good instincts and a variety of talents, which will enable him to be very successful in his academic and career endeavors. He is the first two-year team captain in school history.”
Beamer, the son of Roze Ellen and Eric Beamer, was a three-year letterman for the Cubs and was named All-District his senior year.
“Bryce is a very dedicated player — accountable and responsible in every respect,” said Cheatham County coach Brian Mintz. “He played the game with great effort, taking pride in every play and every performance.”
Clanton, the son of Kathy and Mike Clanton, was a three-year letterman for the War Eagles and two-time All-District player. He was the 2013 Most Valuable Player and team captain.
“Adam is an excellent football player, leader and student,” said Sycamore coach Tyler Williams. “He is and was a role model for our team. I know he will be successful in life.”
