nfca, nfca awards, nfca high school awards, COVID-19, nfca cancels high school all-Americans for 2020

Due to continued development of COVID-19 and the effect it has had on the sports landscape, including the cancellation of high school athletics’ spring seasons in over 40 states, the NFCA will not be awarding its High School All-Region and All-America honors in 2020. Additionally, the USA Today Sports/NFCA High School Super 25 that was announced on March 12 will be the final poll of 2020.

The Association’s primary goal is to protect the integrity of these awards. In March, the NFCA announced its stance on all awards and scholarships that will and will not be presented in 2020, which now includes High School awards. Please see the summary below.

All-Region, All-American, Regional/National Coaching Staff of the Year, Easton/NFCA Assistant Coach of the Year, New Balance/NFCA Golden Shoe, Diamond/NFCA Catcher of the Year, Schutt Sports/NFCA Player, Pitcher, & Freshman of the Year:
For student-athlete athletic awards, there were not enough games played and therefore not enough body of work to fairly evaluate athletes. These same principles apply for the coaching awards.

Academic Awards:
Many universities, colleges, and high schools have moved to a pass/fail system, rather than award letter grades for the spring semester or quarter. In order to maintain year-to-year consistency of these prestigious academic awards, the Easton/NFCA All-America Scholar-Athlete Award and Top 10 Academic Teams will not be given for the 2019-2020 academic year.

Victory Club:
Head to your Coach's Box to update your record and/or submit a milestone from the 2020 season.

Additional Awards & Scholarships:
Nominations can be submitted for the Donna Newberry "Perseverance," Humanitarian, and Turface Athletics/NFCA Field of the Year. Additionally, you can apply for the Diversity, Mary Nutter, and Geri Ann Glasco Memorial Scholarships. All can be found in your Coach’s Box.

Keep Your Coaching Pitch Perfect.
