The 2021 All-World Preseason Football Contest gives readers the chance throughout the summer to select the best high school football players in the Tulsa area. A total of 80 players — 10 at each of eight positions — have been selected as candidates. Nominees were picked on the basis of past performance, projected 2021 accomplishments and college potential. Players from all grades are eligible and may only be selected at one position. Voting is open now and continues through 3 p.m. Aug. 10. The winners will be announced in in late August. Our position-by-position rankings, as well as features on select players, will be published throughout the summer.
