Saginaw Club, SCSHOF and MLive Media Group Present Upcoming Hawkins Award

The second annual Harry Hawkins Award presentation will be announced Thursday, December 3rd at 6 p.m. at the Castle Museum of Saginaw County History, 500 Federal Ave. in Saginaw.

The Heisman Trophy-like award made its debut in 2019 and recognizes the top senior football player in Saginaw County. The Saginaw Club is the presenting sponsor of the award in conjunction with the Saginaw County Sports Hall of Fame and the MLive Media Group.

Finalists include Nouvel Catholic Central’s Jack Kujawa, Heritage’s Chris Parker and Merrill’s Logan Heath.

The ceremony will be virtual and is not open to the public; excluding the media. Members of the Hawkins’ Committee, the three players, their parents and their coaches will be in attendance. Attendees are asked to abide by the Covid-19 protocols for social distancing and are required to wear masks when not speaking.

The Hawkins award is named in honor of former Arthur Hill High School and University of Michigan gridiron standout Harry Hawkins, the first All-American football player from Saginaw County. Hawkins, also a track standout at Michigan, where he captured both the Big Ten and National Championships in the hammer throw, was an engineer and executive in the automotive industry.
