Final Four announced in the Hungry Howie’s Michigan High School Mr. Football Award Contest
As announced on this morning’s State Champs! High School Sports Show, the four finalists in the Hungry Howie’s Mr. Football Award were Clarkston quarterback D.J. Zezula, Brother Rice quarterback Alex Malzone, Mona Shores quarterback Tyree Jackson and Cass Tech running back Mike Weber.
Zezula, the leading vote-getter in the online fan vote has led 13-0 Clarkston to a second straight Division 1 state championship game and has put together an impressive senior season where he has proven to be a threat throwing the ball as well as running it as well as he’s recorded over 2,000 yards through the air and added nearly 800 more yards on the ground in 2014 and 34 total touchdowns through 13 contests.
Malzone, a Michigan commit, led Brother Rice into the regional semifinal where the Warriors fell at the hands of Warren De La Salle, but finished his high school career with a 25-1 record as a starter. Malzone threw for nearly 3,000 yards and 38 touchdowns and just five interceptions in his senior season.
Jackson, committed to Buffalo has helped lead Mona Shores to a memorable 2014 season as he and the Sailors are one win away from winning the Division 2 state championship after never winning a postseason game before this season. So far this season, Jackson has thrown for over 2,000 yards and close to 1,000 yards on the ground and has near 40 total touchdowns in his senior campaign.
Weber, a highly sought after running back in the college ranks after decommitting from Michigan recently, rushed for 2,177 yards and 29 touchdowns, in just 10 games after missing three games throughout the season, in 2014 and helped lead Cass Tech to the Division 1 semifinal, where the Technicians fell at the hands of Saline.
