MileHigh Prep Report Class 2A Regular Season Awards
My 2018 Class 2A Regular Season Awards. Picking these players is never easy and usually takes me a while to decide on any of these awards. I am stuck using Maxpreps for stats unless they are sent to me. I used the state on Maxpreps on 10/30. I physically could not make every game, so I used stats and tried to watch any film available. I will not lie, and I leaned heavily towards teams that made the playoffs for picking First/Second teams.
Quick Note: If your team has not posted stats it is very hard for me to give awards to players with no stats even if your team is doing good I cannot guess stats.
One other Note: Being a lineman in high school it also hurt me inside not giving any offensive lineman awards. So, this year I have decided to give two offensive line groups into my First and Second team offenses.
