Michigan High School Football Coaches Association Awards


The MHSFCA also honors their own All-Academic SENIOR players with a gpa of 3.5 or higher. LUCAS MANTINI


These next are awards that are voted on by the coaches around the state. It starts with getting selected to the All-Region team by your local coaches in your region, then if a player is selected to the All-Region Team they then become eligible to be selected by the state coaches who have voting rights to select the All-State Teams for each division. This year we had multiple players earn such post-season honors…Our first three (3) players to win the ALL-REGION award BRENT CORNEAU, GORDON STOLECKI, and LUCAS MANTINI.


These next players achieve the highest honor one can receive as an individual athlete playing in high school sports. Today Almont adds THREE more athletes to that special group of players. Please congratulate All-Region and All-State Athletes AYDEN FERQUERON, CHASE BATTANI, and YOUSIF ABU-JOUDEH.
