Tennessee's best high school football players for 2008 were recognized at the Tennessee Titans Mr. Football Awards luncheon hosted by the Tennessee Titans.
More than 700 people, including the honorees, their families, coaches, school administrators and members of the media from all parts of the state, attended the 2008 luncheon at the Embassy Suites Hotel & Conference Center.
High school head coaches and members of the media nominated the finalists. A committee of statewide sports writers selected winners based on performance in the 2008 regular season. Academics and character were also taken into consideration.
The awards were presented to the top back and lineman in each of the seven classifications of the Tennessee Secondary Schools Athletic Association. For the seventh time in the history of the award, the top kickers in the state were recognized. There were three finalists in this category, regardless of their school's classification.
