The USA TODAY High School Sports Awards show, which will be televised and available for streaming in early August, will showcase honorees from each state, announce the top three in the country and then name the athlete of the year in each sport. Viewers will also see awards for the freshman athlete of the year, the play of the year, the nation’s top male and female athlete, and many other premier awards for high school student athletes.
