Four TKA Football Players Receive Post-Season Awards

Four members of the Lion’s football team at the King’s Academy were recently named Southeast Super Regional members by the National Christian School Athletic Association for all divisions of varsity football.

Senior offensive lineman Tyler Chaisson, junior running back James Holland, junior wide receiver/defensive back Nate Cannon and junior kicker Paul Schumacher were recognized for their outstanding play during the 2012 football season. Each young man played an instrumental role in leading the Lions to their 11th consecutive winning season.

Holland was chosen for an even greater honor. Holland, who led the Lions in rushing with more than 1,200 yards, was named a 2013 NCSAA All-American. This marks the second significant post-season award for Holland, who was an honorable mention member of the 2012 Palm Beach Post All-County Team.

With the exception of Chaisson, each player will return for TKA in 2013 and provide great leadership in conjunction with their superior athletic abilities. The Lions recently completed spring practice with a 46-45 win over Moore Haven High School and wasted no time preparing for the upcoming season, having already begun their summer training. The 2013 season will begin Friday, Aug. 23 with a Kickoff Classic against the Benjamin School.
