Justyn Ross, Asa Martin, Bo Nix – the biggest names of today and tomorrow have been named finalists for the Alabama Sports Writers Association back and lineman of the year.

Last year’s Mr. Football, LaDamian Webb, is nominated, despite being injured early in the 5A playoffs. Other finalists from last year that were nominated again include Park Crossing offensive lineman Tank Jenkins and Pinson Valley quarterback Bo Nix who was a finalist for Scottsboro in 5A.

The list of finalists were chosen by prep writers across the state earlier this month. Alabama’s Mr. Football will be chosen from this list. The awards will be handed out on January 17 in Montgomery.

As a radio station, WJOX/JoxPreps is not eligible to vote in this poll. All names are listed in alphabetical order.
