Myles Brennan Named Mr. Football for Class 4A


With every form of high praise, whether that be awards, honors, or accolades, the legend of Myles Brennan continues to grow. Today, his legacy just got that much bigger.
This morning, the MHSAA announced the inaugural winners of the Mr. Football Award, going to the state’s best player in each classification. The St. Stanislaus quarterback is the first ever recipient hailing from Class 4A after rewriting the record books during the regular season.
The LSU commit broke Dylan Favre’s all-time record for both career passing yards and touchdowns in Mississippi, while leading his team to a regular season mark of 9-1.
A lot to brag about for Mr. Football, but per the usual, he’s not even thinking about himself. “It’s pretty special to realize that the first time this award has ever been given it was to myself. It will kind of just set the stepping stones for the next quarterbacks to come, whether it’s 4A or any classification. That’s kind of what I strive to be. I strive to leave a legacy everywhere I go and be a role model for the younger kids.”
St. Stanislaus offensive lineman Mark Cook said, “I think it shows great character on his part because he doesn’t like let it get to his head. He doesn’t get all caught up in the media and everything. He tries to stay simple and stay focused to the games at hand which is the playoffs.”
The MHSAA will hold a banquet to recognize the six winners on December 1st in Starkville as a precursor to the state championship games.
The Mr. Football Award was started in conjunction with the New Orleans Saints.
