NASHVILLE -- Tennessee's best high school football players for 2020 were recognized at the Tennessee Titans Mr. Football Awards banquet hosted by the Tennessee Titans.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, fewer people were permitted to attend this year's awards ceremony compared to past years. This year's attendees included the 30 finalists, family members, and coaches at the 2020 luncheon.

"This is such an outstanding honor for all 30 of the young men recognized today at the Tennessee Titans Mr. Football Awards," said Bernard Childress, Executive Director of the TSSAA. "They were here not only due to their athletic ability that they displayed on the field throughout the season, but just as much for their outstanding character and academic achievements."

High school head coaches and members of the media nominated the finalists. A committee of statewide sports writers selected winners based on performance in the 2020 regular season. Academics and character were also taken into consideration.

The awards were presented to the top football players in each of the nine classifications of the Tennessee Secondary Schools Athletic Association. The top kickers in the state were also recognized. There were three finalists in this category, regardless of their school's classification.

The Titans became sponsors of the Mr. Football Awards in 2007.
