The All-Centennial State Football Team: Results

Rocky Mountain Showdown

Mile High Sports Magazine celebrates the start of college football season with our college football preview, which this year features two local wide receivers on the Biletnikoff Award watch list: Rashard Higgins of Colorado State and Nelson Spruce of Colorado. We’re just day’s away from starting to find out to which of these standouts will the best in the state in 2015.

That very question got us to thinking just who might be the best at each position, not just this year, but of all time among college players in the Centennial State. So throughout the month of August we left it up to you the readers to help us determine who are the best Colorado (the entire state, not just the University of variety) college football players of all time at each position.

More than 2,500 ballots were cast, and in the end, you came up with one heck of a squad.
