Dresden’s Cameron Schlicht (11) looks to pass the ball against Obion County during a Week 6 high school football game at Dresden on Sept. 22, 2023.

One month is all that remains before the 2023 high school football regular season will come to a close.

That means we are also one month away from Mr. Football nominations are due.

So here are my top 10 prospects of West Tennessee players to be named Mr. Football semifinalists. Well, actually, I have 11 names here because choosing between the two Trinity Christian Academy players was too tough to figure out.
