Security Federal Athlete of the Week: Jan. 9-15

Partnering with Security Federal, the Warren County Sports Authority will honor a standout local athlete each week. The WCSA and the Friendliest Bank in Town love seeing great athletic achievement and there are plenty to pick from every week in Warren County. From winter to summer, spring to fall, and on courts, fields, diamonds, dance floors and anywhere else an athlete can succeed, Security Federal and the Sports Authority are going to be on the lookout for the best of the best!


WCMS Pioneer PG Carter Simpson


When the Central Tennessee Conference tournament cranks up this week, the WCMS Pioneers will be among the favorites to bring home the trophy. A big reason why Warren County could hoist the hardware is the dominant play of Carter Simpson this season.

Simpson is the engine of the Pioneer offense, a relentless rim attacker who can also make it rain from deep. He's also a deft passer, creating easy baskets for others as Warren County went 10-2 in CTC games and won its last six games.

Simpson helped the Pioneers clinch the No. 1 seed in this week's tournament with another impressive performance last week. Playing at Coffee County when the Red Raiders were honoring their eighth graders, Simpson was the star as he poured in 20 points in an empathic 41-19 victory.

Warren County will now have to wait until Saturday to try to capture the CTC crown. The Pioneers are scheduled to play Saturday at 10 a.m. against the winner of Harris Middle and Franklin South. With a win, the Pioneers would move into the tournament finals, which are currently scheduled to be played Saturday at 3 p.m.

Simpson, who has already had a pair of game winners this season, will be looking to add to his legendary season in the tournament. The CTC tournament is slated to be played at Franklin South.
