TOLEDO, Ohio — The 58th annual NFF Banquet that was originally postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak was officially canceled on Wednesday. 

After working with banquet partners on attempting to reschedule the banquet, the foundation came to the conclusion that they will not be able to host the banquet for 2020.

The NFF will still honor the scholar athletes and the scholarship winners. All $25,000 in scholarship money will be sent to the winners, while the honored coaches and athletes will still receive their NFF plaque at a future date not yet determined.
