It’s a little difficult to identify Connor Harris’ position on the football field as the Blue Springs South senior plays quarterback, defensive back and handles the Jaguars’ punting and kicking duties.

It’s a little difficult to identify Connor Harris’ position on the football field as the Blue Springs South senior plays quarterback, defensive back and handles the Jaguars’ punting and kicking duties.

But there’s one all-encompassing thing Harris might do better than any high school player in Kansas City: playing football.

Harris is one of four finalists for the 29th Annual Thomas A. Simone Memorial Award, which is given each year to the most outstanding football player in the Kansas City metropolitan area.

Other finalists are Fort Osage defensive tackle Tony Tanumai, Lee’s Summit West offensive tackle Evan Boehm, Staley defensive end Nathanael Lohn and Rockhurst linebacker Michael Rose.

This is the first time for any of the players to be named finalists.

Blue Springs wide receiver Deiondre Hall was also named a finalist for the Fifth Annual Otis Taylor Award, given to the top tight end/wide receiver in the metro area.

The awards ceremony will be held Tuesday, Dec. 6. The Simone Awards  are voted on by the member head coaches of the Greater Kansas City Football Coaches Association and a 12-member media committee.
