The numbers, even in a condensed regular season for some, are remarkable.

Six Chattanooga-area players who have caught the state's attention by putting up impressive statistical totals this year have been selected among the five semifinalists for the Mr. Football award in their respective classifications.

A pair of running backs in TSSAA Division II-AAA - McCallie's B.J. Harris and Baylor's Elijah Howard - are joined by McMinn County running back Jalen Hunt (Class 6A), Meigs County running back Will Meadows (2A) and South Pittsburg teammates Hunter Frame (running back) and Jared Stone (offensive lineman and linebacker) in 1A.

Thursday's announcement of the semifinalists for the Tennessee honors were made with the regular season having finished last week and the playoffs set to begin.
