Karsen Barnhart, Jack Harbaugh and Larry Prout Jr. will all be honored tonight at the MHSFCA Dream Team Awards Banquet.
In what’s certain to be one of the highlights of the evening, Grant Newsome, whose career was cut short by a traumatic leg injury, will present his friend Prout with the Pete Schmidt Courage Award. Newsome won the award last season, and Prout is a deserving recipient this year.
Prout was “signed” to the program out of Team Impact four years ago and has undergone over 100 surgeries.
Head coach members of the MHSFCA nominated their best players for All State consideration in November. MHSFCA Committees representing each of the 8 Divisions of 11-man and 2 Divisions of 8-man football selected All State Teams in each Division. The MHSFCA then selected the Dream Team from those All State Teams.
Paw Paw offensive tackle Barnhardt, who some argue is the best offensive lineman in the state, earned his spot on the team.
