Indianapolis Colts High School Academic All-Star Team

Each high school football season, the Indianapolis Colts, the Indiana High School Athletic Association and the Indiana Football Coaches Association announce the Indianapolis Colts Indiana High School Academic All-Star Team, which honors state high school football players who excel in the classroom as well as on the field.

Now in its 22nd year, nominations for the award are collected from coaches across the state each season. The IFCA then selects the top student-athletes to receive the recognition.

This year's team includes 24 seniors – 11 offensive players, 11 defensive players and two special teams players. All are ranked in the top five percent of their class, and 19 are either class valedictorian or salutatorian.
