WINNERS: 2013 High School Football Awards

Updated: Friday, December 20 2013, 10:43 AM EST

For the past eight seasons, WTOV9 has teamed up to bring our viewers the Belmont Savings Bank/WTOV9 High School Football Awards.

Before and during the high school football season, NEWS9 Sports spotlights area high school football players. The Big 22 pre- and mid-season lists are chosen by our top-notch staff, consisting of our sports department, local high school football coaches and area media sports experts.

For weeks, viewers submitted nominations to us. Then, you helped us to select the season's final Big 22 by voting on WTOV9.com.
