The Macon County High School football program held its awards ceremony for the 2020 season on April 21 at Macon County High School.

Four players — Dylan Heson, Mason Swindle, Landon Whittemore and Logan Whittemore — were recognized for joining the program’s 1,000-pound club, which consists of lifting a combined weight of 1,000 pounds in the bench press, power clean and squat.
