The Foundation recognizes and awards high school linemen from the Tri-State region. An offensive and defensive lineman are chosen from this group of exceptional student-athletes based on their skill on the field, academic achievements and community involvement.
High school freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors are eligible.

From this group of winners, Anthony will select two student-athletes to be recognized as the overall Offensive and Defensive Linemen of the Year at the National Football Foundation Scholar-Athlete Banquet.
