Dream Team Selection Process
In early November, head coach members of the MHSFCA nominated their best players for All State consideration. MHSFCA Committees representing each of the 8 Divisions of 11-man and 2 Divisions of 8-man football selected All State Teams in each Division. The MHSFCA then selected the Dream Team from those All State Teams.
Scholar-Athletes were chosen from academic All State nominees also made by MHSFCA member head coaches. The top two nominees were selected to receive the Scholar-Athlete Awards.
Dream Team Coach of the Year was an easy choice for the MHSFCA. John Herrington served as our President for 2018. He retires as the Michigan high school football coach with the most wins in the State’s history.
In addition to High School Dream Team and Scholar-Athletes the Banquet will feature keynote addresses by University of Michigan head coach, Jim Harbaugh, and MSU senior safety, Khari Willis.
The banquet will also recognize NFF & College Hall of Fame Scholar-Athletes from D1, D2 and D3.
