The 2022 football season marked the 57th year that the Middle Tennessee Chapter of the National Football Foundation & College Football Hall of Fame recognized local high school and collegiate scholar-athletes. This year we will be hosting our annual banquet on February 23, 2023 to continue our important tradition of honoring these outstanding young men for their accomplishments not only on the gridiron during their 2022 season but also in their classrooms and their communities.


Our Board of Directors and the staff at our partners from Wilson Bank & Trust salute each of our honorees. Together, we wish them all tremendous success beyond their high school days and thank them for their dedication to our great game of football!

After many years of being a solid event sponsor, Wilson Bank & Trust became the Presenting Sponsor of the banquet in 2020 and has maintained their level of support in each subsequent year!
