He has thrown for 2,257 yards and 18 touchdowns and rushed for 719 yards and 14 touchdowns, even though he did not play in the fourth quarter of six games due to large UNA leads. UNA will host North Greenville University on Saturday in the NCAA Division II quarterfinals. Tucker attended Perry County High School in Linden and was a TSSAA Mr. Football (Class A, backs) in 2011. He's seen here with his mother and grandfather at UNA's senior recognition ceremonies last month. The Harlon Hill Trophy winner will be announced Dec. 16. (Submitted photo)
