Mustang Pearson Named All-State
Mustang Kade Pearson was recently named to the Tennessee Sports Writers Association’s Class 1A All-State Football Team for his defensive play.
The senior was also Huntingdon’s quarterback, leading the team to a perfect 10-0 in the regular season and to within one point of a TSSAA Semifinals appearance in a double-overtime quarterfinal loss.
His All-State defense included 58 total tackles in the regular season, 39 of those solo tackles. He had 14 tackles for a loss, including eight sacks.
On the offensive side, Pearson completed 37 of 68 pass attempts for 680 yards and 17 touchdowns with just three interceptions. He rushed 119 times for 935 yards and a dozen touchdowns. He rushed for over 100 yards five times.
His play on both sides of the ball earned him a spot as a Class 1A Mr. Football Finalist.
