Greetings, PA High School Football Fans!  There have been many outstanding team and individual performances thus far across the state.  Now it is time to start nominating the best football players in the Keystone state! SportsRecruiters.com has announced they will sponsor the ninth annual Mr. Pennsylvania football awards banquet on Saturday, February 16, 2019, after the immense success of previous years.  Nominations for the 2018 Mr. PA Football will open on October 26, 2018.

The Mr. PA Football Awards will be presented on February 16th to the best high school football players in Pennsylvania.  There will be two awards presented; one for the Small School Mr. Football which will consist of class 1A, 2A, and 3A players, and one for the Big School Mr. Football which will consist of class 4A, 5A, and 6A players.  The players will be chosen by football fans, sportswriters/ sportscasters, and coaches from around the state.  Fans will be able to nominate and vote for their favorite players, and the media panel from major media markets as well as coaches from across the state will be nominating and voting for the outstanding players.  The fans, the media, and the coaches will each represent 1/3 of the vote.

Again, new classifications have been established by the PIAA in 2016 and as a result Mr. PA Football will continue to classify the Small School Award as 1A-3A, and the Big School Award as 4A-6A.  Also, in addition to the Mr. PA Football Award this year, there will again be a separate category of nominations for the Mr. PA Football Lineman Awards.  The nomination list for the Lineman Awards will be acquired from the nominations for Mr. PA Football.  The Lineman Awards will use the same classifications as Mr. PA Football.  The voting for each round and the winners will be chosen by a selection panel.  The selection panel is comprised of media members as well as coaches.  The Mr. PA Football Lineman Award winners will be announced on January 28, 2019.  The awards will be presented at the banquet on Saturday, February 16th, to the Small School winner which will consist of class 1A, 2A, and 3A players, and the Big School winner which will consist of class 4A, 5A, and 6A players.

Also, Sports Recruiters.com is proud to announce that Penn State University Head Coach James Franklin will be the keynote speaker at the ninth annual Mr. Pennsylvania high school football awards on Saturday, February 16, 2019, at 5:30pm at the Best Western Premiere in Harrisburg.
