Zac Minnich receives prestigious football award

Milan High School Principal and Head Football Coach Ryan Langferman announced that 2016-17 grid-ironer Zac Minnich has received a first for the Milan football program.

On Sunday March 26, a well-deserved Minnich was honored, along with 24 other upcoming student-athletes, at The Griddy’s as one of the prime time 25 players for the 2017 high school football season. A very prestigious honor, when considering Zac was one of 25 players chosen out of the estimated 18,000 varsity football players across Indiana.

Zac, currently a junior at Milan High School, made a name for himself by leading the state with 1,562 yards, an average of 24.8 yards per catch, and 24 touchdowns on 63 receptions to help Ryan Langferman’s Indians (10-3) to a Class 2A Sectional title in 2016. Already an owner of six school records, he has 112 career catches for 2,497 yards and 39 scores. Along with the award, Zac will be the first Milan Indian to be on the cover of the Indiana Football Digest when the 2017 edition is released in July. The Griddy’s have been in existence for 11 years and have become known as the ESPY’s of Indiana high school football.

Over 400 attendees gathered at the banquet and awards ceremony held at the Indianapolis Colts practice facilities and pavilion for recognizing the best players, coaches and media representatives in Indiana high school football. Winners are chosen by polling more than 50 head football coaches in Indiana to get their input, as well as other prominent members of the Indiana football community. There are less than 350 Griddy awards in existence. For more information visit www.griddys.com. Ripley Publishing Company, Inc. adds congratulations to Zac Minnich and the Milan Indians football players and coaching staff for positive strides within their solidly vibrant program.
