Maxwell Football Awards Move to the College Hall of Fame in Atlanta

Maxwell Football Club Executive Director Mark Wolpert announced that the 87th Maxwell Awards will be held on Friday March 8, 2024 at the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta Georgia. This will be the first time in the Club’s history that the awards event will be hosted outside of the Philadelphia region having been in the city of Philadelphia for 64 years followed by a 22-year run in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

The College Football Hall of Fame is no stranger to national functions of this type, having hosted marquee events like the ESPN College Football Awards, SEC Media Days and other football related functions. The facility provides a modern location with amenities and ample hotel space which will make for a fantastic event for guests.

The Club has announced that Michael Penix Jr. (Washington) -Maxwell Award (College Player of the Year), Payton Wilson (NC State) - Chuck Bednarik Award (College Defensive Player of the Year) and Caleb Downs (Alabama) Shaun Alexander Award (Freshman of the Year) will be honored on March 8th in Atlanta along with other award winners from college and professional football that will be announced in upcoming weeks.

“We have enjoyed a very long run in the Philadelphia region and with our ever-expanding high school programs in this region, we will always have a tremendous presence in this area. But as the Maxwell Club has grown, and taken on a position of prominence nationally, we have to look at the best opportunities to expose our awards and programs on a broader level. The College Football Hall of Fame is an incredible venue that is so rich in the history of the game, and Atlanta is a location that offers a tremendous venues and infrastructure that are essential for a successful event. The southeast region offers amazing possibilities and the timing is right for us.” Mark Wolpert – Maxwell Football Club Executive Director

The Hall’s rich history of celebrating excellence makes us the perfect venue for the Maxwell Awards and this year and beyond and our state state-of-the-art facilities will ensure an unforgettable experience for all attendees."
