Following a standout senior season at wide receiver and safety, Newton’s Collin Reynolds has been named among the 20 state finalists for the Wendy’s High School Heisman Award for Iowa.
Of the 45,000 seniors who applied nationwide, 688 applicants came from Iowa and have been narrowed down to the state’s 20 finalists. These finalists embody the Heisman spirit of hard work and dedication through their outstanding achievements in athletics, academics and community/school leadership.
Nov. 5, one male and one female finalist from each state will be named state winners. Of those state winners, 12 will be chosen as national finalists and will go on to compete for the national winner title in New York City on Dec. 7. National finalists will be featured during a televised ceremony on ESPN networks and will receive gold medals and $2,000 awards for their high schools.
One male and one female national winner will receive a crystal Wendy’s High School Heisman trophy, a $500 gift certificate to Wendy’s, and Wendy’s will donate $10,000 to each winner’s respective high school.
