Character award

Courtney one of five CAREacter ET honorees

Eddie Courtney, Farragut High School varsity football head coach, is one of five individuals from around East Tennessee — all of whom have a connection to high school football — who will be receiving inaugural CAREacter Star East Tennessee Service Award.

Courtney has earned the Head Coach Award “based totally on his character” according to CAREacter founder David Moore, a retired veteran football coach and physical education teacher at Lenoir City High School,

Courtney’s award will be presented during a yet-to-be determined FHS home football game this fall — either a pre-game or halftime ceremony.

Other awardees are Winston Russell, Assistant Coach Award; Ken Buchannon, Officials Awards; Peggy Bratt, Volunteer Support Staff Award, and Gregg Bostick, Volunteer Support Staff Award.
