Mile High Prep Report 2021 Class 2A League Awards

Mile High Prep Report 2021 Class 2A League Awards.

My Third Annual All-League Awards.  1 Player Per Offensive and Defensive Team If you make offense or defense you will not be on both.  I will pick a Player of the League, Coach of the League, Special Teams Player of the League, and Surprise Team of the League.  If you would like a certificate, let me know and will mail you one or email them to you. Remember these are not CHSAA Official but awards that Mile High Prep Report does.  Also, I do miss people if I missed someone let me know and I will look.

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.  I will give a least 1 or 2 whole units an award.  Just know that everyone on this list needs a good offensive line!

I am going to try a different format for Class 2A.  If you like the format in Class 1A, 8-Man, and 6-Man more than this let me know.  If a league does not have enough stats, I will stick to just 1 team per league.
