The Milt Blake Award

  The Milt Blake Award, named after a former MFHS athletic director, is awarded annually to the outstanding male and female senior athlete, as selected by the coaches. This award was first awarded in 1975.  To be eligible, the athletes must have participated in more than one sport, and represented the athletic program through their example, citizenship, sportsmanship, and scholarship in an exemplary manner. This award is not necessarily for the best athlete, but the person who best embodies what high school athletics is all about.
