We took about 100 Football Player of the Year Nominees and Finalists, and brought that down to our official Finalists for the award. The group is headlined by the reigning Player of the Year, Rabun’s Gunner Stockton. Also back in the finalist pool for the second year in a row is fellow QB Pierson Allison.

WHAT’S NEXT? This is NOT for public voting. We use our internal voting panel, made of up of up to 25 former players and coaches, and regional sports reporters. We vote Heisman-style for the winner of the award.
