The top high school football players in the country will make their college selections official in just ten days, as next Wednesday is National Letter of Intent Signing Day.  

Some of the top players in Central Virginia had one last chance at gridiron glory Sunday night, as the Falcon Club hosted its 59th annual awards banquet at Elks Lodge #389.  

Former UVa and NFL running back Antonio Rice was the guest speaker this year, and legendary Lane High School coaches Tommy Theodose and Joe Bingler were recognized in a special presentation.  

All of the players selected as Falcon Club Players of the Week throughout the season were honored.  

Western Albemarle senior quarterback Kent Henry has been named the Most Valuable Player for the public schools for the second year in a row.   

Henry amassed over 11,000 yards in his high school career.  

Woodberry Forest senior linebacker Greer Martini is the Player of the Year for the private schools.   

Martini will continue his career at Notre Dame next season.

"It's definitely exciting, and scary at the same time," says Martini.  "I'm excited to sign my letter of intent.  I can't wait to get to Notre Dame.  You're not just going there to play football, you're going there to be a student-athlete.  That's the true definition, and I think Notre Dame displays that."

Henry says, "I'm blessed I received it two years in a row, and it really speaks to coach Ed Redmond, and how he led this team, and how all the players followed him.  It's unbelievable to think that it's all over, and it's still hard to accept that, but I've started to move on, and gear towards college football."

Henry says he is still considering about a half-dozen different schools, and they are all looking at him to play quarterback at the next level.
