2023 Mister Football Nebraska

The Jet Award Foundation and Hurrdat Sports have partnered to name the best high school football player in the state of Nebraska, the 2023 Mister Football Nebraska.

The award will be announced at the end of the 2023 season and given to the winner at the 2024 Jet Award Gala on April 4, 2024, at Baxter Arena.

The finalists were selected with feedback from high school coaches and the Hurrdat Sports staff. There were no limitations on their grade or school classification. Selected for their on-field production after the first six weeks of the 2023 high school football season, below are the 10 finalists for the 2023 Mister Football Nebraska award.

*Listed alphabetically by last NAME*

Caleb Benning, Sr., WR/S, Omaha Westside

Conor Booth, Jr., RB, Wahoo Neumann

JT Brands, Sr., OL/DL, Oakland-Craig

The trophy that will be awarded to the winner is a tribute to South Omaha’s own Marlin Briscoe. Briscoe, drafted in the 14th round by the AFL’s Denver Broncos in 1968, was the first black starting quarterback in professional football. A college football Hall of Fame inductee in 2016, Briscoe played quarterback at Omaha University (1963-1967) and won a state championship while playing running back at Omaha South.
