Tennessee Mr. Football High School Finalists Announced

THE TENNESSEE TITANS MR. FOOTBALL AWARDS TO BE PRESENTED ON MONDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2009 Embassy Suites Hotel & Conference Center, Murfreesboro 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

 

Nashville, Tennessee, November 10, 2009 – The Tennessee Titans Mr. Football Awards will be presented to the top 10 backs and linemen in five classifications of the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association on Monday, November 30, 2009, at the Embassy Suites Hotel & Conference Center in Murfreesboro.  For the eighth consecutive year, the top kicker in the state will be recognized with a Mr. Football Award.  There are three finalists in this category, regardless of their school’s classification.  The awards are sponsored by Nancy and Bud Adams through their donation from the Tennessee Titans Foundation.

 

"High school football in Tennessee enjoys a great tradition throughout the state and we are pleased to join the TSSAA for the third consecutive year in saluting these fine young men at the Tennessee Titans Mr. Football Awards," said Adams. "The young men that are recognized with these awards are truly the best of the best! They are selected not only for their football skills, but for their strong character and academic achievements and we're honored to join the TSSAA in saluting them!"

 

A committee of statewide sports writers selected winners based on performance in the 2009 regular season.  Academics and character were also taken into consideration.  High school head coaches and members of the media nominated the finalists.  

 

"We're very thankful to Mr. and Mrs. Adams and the Tennessee Titans for their continued commitment to high school athletics,” stated Bernard Childress, Executive Director of the TSSAA.

 

"We are obviously excited and appreciative about being involved with the Tennessee Titans.  They have helped make the recognition of the 33 student-athletes, their families, and schools possible," added Childress.

 

This is the twenty-fifth year that the Mr. Football Awards have been presented to Tennessee’s best high school football players.  Plaques will be presented to 22 other finalists.

 

Approximately 600 people, including the honorees, their families, coaches, school administrators and members of the media from all parts of the state, are expected to attend the 2009 luncheon.

 

Mike Keith, play-by-play voice of the Tennessee Titans, will emcee the awards presentations. Live videostream of the awards will be provided for free by the Tennessee High School Sports Network (THSSN).  Those interested can watch the awards by going to www.tssaa.org.
