Welcome to the inaugural State Champs! Michigan High School Football Anvil Award contest 2018!
We are happy to bring to you a new contest that complements Mr. Football but showcases the best Michigan High School “big men” - offense and defensive lineman and linebackers – in the state.
To vote, simply select the candidate that you believe is having the best year of our lineman/linebacker candidates, enter your email, and cast your vote!!
A confirmation email will be sent to you with a link to cast your vote - please note that your vote will not be counted until you click the link emailed to you! By voting in the Michigan Football Anvil Award contest and supplying your email, you agree to allow State Champs! Network and its affiliates to update you via email about news, sports events and special offers.
Unlike any other state-wide award, State Champs! Awards are the only one that allows the Michigan fans to weigh in! However, winning the popular vote does not make you the contest winner - the winner of the online vote is automatically entered into the Final Four, and their chances of winning is increased by 20%.
The criteria that will be used to select the 2018 Michigan Football Anvil Award champion will be:
30% - Performance Throughout Season
20% - Level of Competition
20% - Online Vote
15% - Big Game Performance
10% - Team Success
5% - Highly Recruited Athlete
Throughout the season, we will be updating player statistics and adding new candidates into the contest as their actual play and performance merits, with a goal of keeping the ten best players on the board. In mid-November we will close online voting and select our final four candidates. The final award selection and presentation will take place in December.
Please tune into State Champs! High School Sports Show on Saturday mornings at 9am on Fox Sports Detroit for the latest updates on the contest!
