Congratulations to East Nashville High School senior Devarius Quantez Cortner, who is this year's Hume Award winner. Each school in the Metropolitan Nashville Public School System submits a candidate chosen by the principal and football coach on the basis of scholarship, sportsmanship, individual performance and value to the team.

A committee composed of a representative of the host club, the president of the Secondary Schools Principals Association, the president of the Middle Tennessee Football Officials Association and the sports writer covering high school football from each of our daily newspapers selects the five finalists and the winner from the candidates submitted by the schools.
