MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Fresh off the heels of National Signing Day and the Fever Singing Day Party, WSFA will honor some of the best Fever Country football players Wednesday.

Wednesday, athletes that put on great performances on Friday nights across Fever Country last season will gather at the WSFA 12 Studios. The Fever Star Athlete of the Year will be announced at a party with a crowd consisting of the past season's weekly winners.
