Nashville, Tennessee, November 30, 2015 – Tennessee’s best high school football players for 2015 were recognized at the Tennessee Titans Mr. Football Awards luncheon hosted by the Tennessee.

More than 400 people, including the honorees, their families, coaches, school administrators and members of the media from all parts of the state, attended the 2015 luncheon at Nissan Stadium.

“This is such an outstanding honor for all 33 of the young men recognized today at the Tennessee Titans Mr. Football Awards,” said Bernard Childress, Executive Director of the TSSAA.  “They were here not only due to their athletic ability that they displayed on the field throughout the season, but just as much for their outstanding character and academic achievements.”

High school head coaches and members of the media nominated the finalists. A committee of statewide sports writers selected winners based on performance in the 2015 regular season. Academics and character were also taken into consideration.

The awards were presented to the top back and lineman in each of the eight classifications of the Tennessee Secondary Schools Athletic Association. The top kickers in the state were also recognized. There were three finalists in this category, regardless of their school’s classification.

The Titans became sponsors of the Mr. Football Awards in 2007.

Help Save Lives Through Blood And Platelet Donation, By Hosting A Blood Drive

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Nov. 23, 2015) — This holiday season, the American Red Cross urges individuals to give something that means something – a blood or platelet donation. This simple, potentially lifesaving act can give patients in need another holiday season with loved ones.

Blood donors with all types, especially O negative, B negative and A negative, are urged to give. Platelet donors and those with type AB blood are also continually needed. To encourage donations around Thanksgiving, those who come to give blood or platelets from Nov. 25-29 will receive a limited-edition Red Cross mixing spoon with recipes from celebrity chefs John Besh, Richard Blais, Rocco DiSpirito, Mike Isabella, Ellie Krieger and Ali Larter, while supplies last.

How to donate blood

To make an appointment, download the free Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). Donors can use RapidPass to complete their pre-donation reading and health history questionnaire online, on the day of their donation, from a computer or laptop. Visit redcrossblood.org/RapidPass to get started.

A blood donor card or driver’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental consent in some states), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.

Blood drive hosts needed

This time of year, there are also fewer blood drives on the calendar. Many sponsoring groups postpone blood drives while people are busy with holiday activities, and severe weather may cause scheduled blood drives to be canceled. With fewer opportunities for donors to give, the Red Cross typically experiences a seasonal decline in blood donations.


Because more than 80 percent of blood donations are made at blood drives, organizations are needed to host blood drives this winter to help ensure a sufficient blood supply for patients in need. More information on hosting a blood drive is available at redcrossblood.org.

Consumer Affairs Urges Parents To Protect Children From Identity Fraud

Celebrate Universal Children’s Day on Nov. 20

NASHVILLE – The Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance’s Consumer Affairs Division encourages parents to celebrate Universal Children’s Day on Friday, Nov. 20 by learning to protect children from identity fraud.

While the Tennessee Privacy of School Records Laws, Tenn. Code Ann. § 10-7-504 (2015), generally protect the privacy of student records, parents should adopt some good habits in their everyday lives to help safeguard their children. For example:

• Don’t share your child’s Social Security number unless it is to a trusted party.

• Keep your child’s personal information (name, birth certificate, school paperwork) in a safe, secure location.

• Shred any outdated documents containing your child’s personal information before throwing them away.

• When asked for your child’s personal information, don’t be afraid to ask questions: “How will this information be used?”, “Who will have access?”, “How will it be kept safe?” and, “Can I opt out?”

• Look for possible warning signs of identity theft such as your child receiving credit card applications.

In addition to building these good identity-theft protection habits, Tenn. Code Ann. § 47-18-2111 gives parents or legal guardians the ability to enact a security freeze on persons under 16 years of age. Generally, when the freeze is in place, consumer reporting agencies (e.g. TransUnion, Equifax, Experian) cannot release that person’s credit report, or any other information derived from the report, regarding that person unless the security freeze is removed.

Give something that means something – Give blood or host a blood drive

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Nov. 16, 2015) – The American Red Cross encourages individuals and organizations to give something that means something this winter by making a lifesaving blood donation or hosting a blood drive.

Blood donations often decline from now to New Year’s Day when holiday festivities pull people away from their donation appointments. Seasonal illnesses, such as colds and the flu, can also have a serious impact on blood donations

In addition, there are fewer blood drives during the winter months when many hosting organizations postpone drives while people are traveling for the holidays. Severe winter weather may also cause scheduled blood drives to be canceled.

Despite the busy holiday season and threat of extreme freezing weather, the need for blood remains steady. Organizations can help by hosting a blood drive during the winter months, and eligible donors are encouraged to make an appointment to give blood. Donors with all blood types are needed, especially those with types O negative, B negative, A negative and AB blood.

Visit redcrossblood.org to learn more about hosting a blood drive. To make an appointment to donate blood, download the free Red Cross Blood Donor App from app stores, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). Donors can now use the Blood Donor App to access their donor card and view vital signs from previous donations.
