Dickson County High School senior Sterling Hobbs has committed to play soccer for the Cumberland University Bulldogs in Lebanon, Tennessee. Hobbs and his Cougar teammates look to defend their District 10-AAA Tournament title with their first postseason game on Monday. The Cougars finished the regular season 7-0-1 in the district, tied for first place with Rossview after the two teams opened the season with a 1-1 tie. Hobbs was a big factor on last year’s team that won the school’s first region championship and the Cougars will have to rely on him even more for offense after losing Mitch Mersman to a knee injury. On Wednesday, Cumberland University announced the resignation of soccer head Coach Jeff Loucks after six years at his alma mater. The former Lebanon High School coach went 7-10-1 with the Bulldogs last fall, losing 5-4 to Lindsay Wilson in the semifinals of the Mid-South Conference Tournament. Hobbs will join former Cougar Jacob McElyea who started eight games at midfielder as a sophomore and scored one goal. Cumberland did not announce who its new head coach will be.
