MileHigh Prep Reports Class 1A Football End of the Season Awards

My 2022 Class 1A Football End of the Season Awards.  Picking is never easy and usually takes me a while to decide on any of these awards. I physically could not make every game, so I used stats and tried to watch any film available.  Making the playoffs and having a deep playoff run will matter with these awards.  Also, if you think I miss anyone I am open to looking at who you think I missed.  These are not easy to come up with.

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: For Offensive Lineman I am listing the entire Unit! If you know the name on the Unit Message me and I will add.  Remember all successful teams need a good offensive line!

Quick Note: Only one team per player, you cannot be on both offense or defense.
