2021-June-11
Each year since 2006, MaxPreps has recognized outstanding performers in high school football. America's source for high school sports continues the tradition to close out the 2020 season by naming the top player in each state. Selections are based on team success and individual excellence, in addition to local and state accolades.

Dasan McCullough of Blue Valley North (Overland Park) is the 2020 MaxPreps Kansas High School Football Player of the Year. The 6-foot-5, 225-pound junior contributed on both sides of the ball but dominated defensively for the Mustangs, who went 7-3 en route to the Class 6A state championship game.

The son of the Kansas City Chiefs running backs coach Deland McCullough, the Blue Valley North star finished the year with 75 tackles, six tackles for loss, four interceptions and four forced fumbles.

McCullough is one of the nation's top Class of 2022 prospects according to 247Sports. The top 100 recruit committed to Ohio State last August over a reported 42 other offers – including College Football Playoff participants Alabama, Clemson and Notre Dame.

Each state's MaxPreps Player of the Year will be considered for inclusion in the MaxPreps All-America Team, which will be released Jan. 29.
