With the 2020 high school football season split due to the coronavirus pandemic, the National Football League is bringing back its Way to Play Award for the spring season. The award recognizes players for using proper playing techniques on the field.
Former NFL players Phil Bogle, Kevin Boothe, Roman Oben, Jon Runyan and Troy Vincent, who are members of the NFL Football Operations Department, choose the weekly winner after analyzing how the players are impacting the game by playing with proper techniques in the areas of tackling, blocking, footwork, discipline and vision.
