During the 2014 football season, Premier Pharmacy partnered with WGAT radio and The Gate City Blue Devil Pre/Post Game show to sponsor a “Player of the Week” award. The Pre/Post Game Show covered and reported on games from all across our region (60 schools total) as well as broadcasting the Gate City Blue Devil games.
We collaborated with sports writers across the region each week to pick a winner. After the season, we took the 10 winners – and had fans, schools, families, and players vote through the radio show’s Facebook page, by text, or by tweeting for the most deserving winner of a “Player of the Year” award. In the 2 weeks of voting, our Premier Pharmacy Players of the Year had 4,680 total votes.
Over the next few weeks, we will be presenting the winners with their trophies and awards. Last night, we made the first of our presentations.
Congratulations to Sullivan South’s Quarterback Dylan Wieger. He was named as the 2014 Premier Pharmacy Tennessee Player of the Year. He helped lead the Rebels to the 3rd round of the TSSAA playoffs, propel an offense that averaged 47 points per game, and set several school records in his career. This year, Dylan accounted for 3,200 yards of total offense, passed for 34 touchdowns, and rushed for 13 touchdowns for the 11-2 Three Rivers Conference Champions. He also earned MVP honors in the Tennessee/Kentucky All Star Game in December.
