Each year since 2006, MaxPreps has recognized outstanding performers in high school football. America’s source for high school sports continues the tradition to close out the 2021 season by naming the top player in each state. Selections are based on team success and individual excellence, in addition to local and state accolades.
Athletes from all 50 states along with Washington, D.C. were selected. Some notable selections include Travis Hunter of Collins Hill (Suwanee, Ga.), who helped the Eagles to the school’s first state title; Cade Klubnik of Westlake (Austin, Texas), who led the Chaparrals to their third consecutive state championship and accounted for over 3,700 yards of total offense and 55 touchdowns; and Tetairoa McMillan of Servite (Anaheim, Calif.), who put up big-time numbers on both sides of the ball playing against the best competition. The future Arizona Wildcat had over 1,300 yards receiving, 18 touchdowns, 35 tackles and eight interceptions.
For an in-depth look at every selection each player’s story is linked that includes their bio and list of accomplishments.
Each state’s MaxPreps Player of the Year will be considered for inclusion in the MaxPreps All-America Team, which will be released Jan. 4. SOURCE
