ASWA announces Back and Lineman of the Year for the 2013 football season

The Alabama Sports Writers Association recently announced their finalists for Back or Lineman of the Year for the 2013 football season.
At its All-State meeting earlier this month, the ASWA selected three finalists in each category in each of the six classes in the Alabama High School Athletic Association and one from the Alabama Independent Schools Association.
Winners in each class – as well as the ASWA’s annual Mr. Football award and Super 12 team — will be announced on Jan. 15 at the Alabama Activities Center in Montgomery at the annual banquet, sponsored by the Alabama High School Athletic Directors and Coaches Association.
