Welcome to the Esmark High School “All-American” Recognition program web site.

As a student-athlete, you have many responsibilities and commitments to maintain…to your families, to your studies in the classroom, to your performance on the playing fields and courts and to your local communities. Attaining recognition for excellence in these areas requires exceptional dedication, a passion for both academics and sports, a commitment to your fellow teammates and coaches, and the compassion to give back to the communities you call home.

The Esmark High School “All-American” Recognition program was created by Esmark Inc. Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer James P. Bouchard to recognize outstanding athletic, educational and community service achievements by high school student-athletes across the United States in 16 major sports programs. The program includes recognition of student-athletes from four U.S. geographic regions: Northeast, Southeast, Southwest and Northwest.

Partnering with nationally recognized sports organizations, regional and state high school athletics associations, the Esmark High School “All-American” Recognition program provides an avenue for coaches, athletic directors, teachers, administrators, parents and community residents to nominate deserving high school boys and girls (Freshmen through Senior Years) who have displayed exceptional achievements on the playing field, in the classroom and in the communities where they live.

This web site contains all the information a school, coach, parent, teacher, teammate or local resident needs to identify and nominate a student-athlete candidate for consideration by the Esmark High School “All-American” panel of judges. In addition, the site includes a merchandise store where award recipients can purchase a variety of items such as recognition plaques and certificates, clothing and other sports gear bearing the Esmark High School “All-American” designation. You’ll also find a “Featured Athletes” section with video vignettes and personal stories about the student-athletes chosen as Esmark High School “All-Americans.”

We invite visitors to explore our site and submit the nomination form for an outstanding student-athlete in your local high school for consideration.
