Pop Warner Announces 2020 National College Football Award Finalists

Presented to a senior who leads on the field, in the classroom and in the community

LANGHORNE, PA (December 11, 2020) – Pop Warner Little Scholars, the nation’s oldest youth football organization, has announced six finalists for its 11th Annual Pop Warner College Football Award.

The award was established in 2010 to recognize a senior who has made a difference on the field, in the classroom and in his community, and serves as a role model to Pop Warner’s young student athletes.

The 2020 finalists are:

  • Baylor University Linebacker Terrel Bernard
  • University of Utah Linebacker Devin Lloyd
  • Stanford University Safety Malik Antoine
  • University of Alabama Tight End Miller Forristall
  • University of Kentucky Tackle Landon Young
  • University of Notre Dame Quarterback Ian Book

The Pop Warner Little Scholars National College Football Award will be announced December 18. Last year’s winner was former USC and current Indianapolis Colt wide receiver Michael Pittman, Jr.

“This has been a difficult year for everyone and yet it’s been inspiring to see how so many student-athletes continue to shine on the field, in the community and in the classroom. In many ways, this year has required the values that so many of our recipients and Pop Warner athletes possess -- teamwork, perseverance and resilience,” said Jon Butler, Pop Warner Little Scholars executive director. “We are once again moved by an amazing group of nominees who have represented themselves, their universities and their communities with distinction.”

Previous recipients have included Prince Amukamara (Nebraska), Chase Minnifield (Virginia), Sean Renfree (Duke), Gary Bush (Purdue), Jordan Richards (Stanford), Brandon Chubb (Wake Forest), Evan Engram (Mississippi), Braxton Berrios (Miami), CJ Conrad (Kentucky) and Pittman.
