KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Four Knoxville area players took home some impressive hardware even before the state championship games were held.

Fulton's Daryl Rollins-Davis, Coalfield's Zach Stewart and Webb's Brant Mitchell and Todd Kelly, Jr. were named Mr. Football Award winners at a banquet in Murfreesboro on Monday.

Despite missing the last two playoff games with an injury, Rollins-Davis chalked-up more than 2100 all-purpose yards and scored at least 38 touchdowns for the Falcons this year.

He was named the Class 2A Back of the Year.

The Falcons (14-0) will play Giles County (12-2) in the Class 2A championship game on Saturday.

Stewart is a 6-5, 300-pound lineman who played for Coalfield. The future Tennessee Volunteer helped the Yellow Jackets make the Class 1A state semifinals.

He was named the Class 1A Lineman of the Year.

"I am just blessed to be here," Stewart said after the ceremony. 

"(I am) only the second person in my school to every be here. To walk out with this trophy it's a true blessing and I am just honored to be here," he added.

Webb had two players earn Mr. Football honors.

Brant Mitchell was named Div II A Lineman of the Year and future Vol Todd Kelly, Jr. was named Div II A Back of the Year.

"It's awesome to have great guys beside me," said Mitchell.

"We go hang out on the weekends. It really takes them to be a good football player and I really appreciate them."

Webb (11-2) will play St. George's (10-3) in the Div II A championship game on Thursday.

"It's very important but I've got a state championship to worry about now," said Kelly. 

"I am going to enjoy the day and I am just going to be focused in on that state championship."
