FNN HEADLINES

HERE IT IS! - Our Best of the Best from the 2023 High School Football Season, by position. Congratulations to these players for making it onto FNN's "The 24" All-Star Team:

The calls have been placed to all four players notifying them of their selection as one of the four young men who have earned the honor of being chosen as this year's FNN Network Player Of The Year nominees. They are:

JACOB CORNEJO - Running Back - Cherokee County Warriors

MASON MIMS - Quarterback - Oxford Yellow Jackets

JIM OGLE - Quarterback - Jacksonville Golden Eagles


MASON TEAGUE - Running Back - Southside Panthers

Each of these four standout players earned their place as a nominee through outstanding season statistical performances on the field, and by appearing at least once on FNN Network's GAME OF THE WEEK over the season.

One of them will be selected through a process that includes a fan vote, an independent five-member panel vote, an FNN internal vote, and an active coaches vote as this year's FNN 2023 Player of the Year.

The recipient will join a distinguished list of winners that include Ron Wiggins (Jacksonville High School, 2018, 2019), Jett Smith (Walter Wellborn High School, 2020), and Jack Hayes (Piedmont High School, 2021, 2022).
