The event will honor local high school football players for their achievements in the classroom and on the football field. Six of the student-athletes being honored will be selected to receive Allstate Sugar Bowl Scholarships for $10,000 each. In addition, two major honors, the Contribution to American Football Award and the Distinguished American Award, will be presented.
