Midland’s own Thompson named SEC Freshman of the Week for Vols

KNOXVILLE, Tn. (WOLO) – Former Dutch Fork and Ben Lippen star Bryce Thompson has been named SEC Freshman of the Week after shining in his first start with Tennessee.

Once a Gamecocks commit, the SCHSL and SCISA state champion helped make a difference on the defensive end of the ball in the Volunteers 59-3 win over East Tennessee State.

First year head coach of the Vols Jeremy Pruitt took time after the win this weekend to comment on the Midlands prospect’s play.
