Mt. Juliet High School senior linebacker Josh Belhu has been named the Music City Star Game-Day Express Player of the Week in Wilson County for Week Zero. Belhu made 13 tackles including two tackles for a loss and one sack. He helped hold rival Lebanon High School to 67 total yards in Mt. Juliet’s 44-0 victory. Belhu is coached by Roger Perry.
Honorable mentions for Week Zero are Brannon Hill of Watertown High School and Preston Reed of Wilson Central High School. Hill scored three touchdowns for the Tigers and Reed blocked a punt to set up Central's first score and was in on 11 tackles -- including five for loss.

Juliet High School, Watertown High School and Wilson Central High School.
