LITTLE ROCK - Farm Bureau Insurance is pleased to announce the winners for the 2018 Farm Bureau Insurance Awards.

The Farm Bureau Insurance Awards honor Arkansas' top offensive player, defensive player and coach of the year for each classification.

The veteran staff at Hooten's Arkansas Football selects three finalists for each category, and those 45 finalists and their families attend the Farm Bureau Awards in North Little Rock.

“We congratulate our 15 winners,” Farm Bureau Insurance executive vice president and general manager David L. Moore said. “All 45 finalists represent some of the best coaches and student-athletes in our state. Farm Bureau Insurance is proud to honor excellence as the title sponsor of this outstanding event."

Farm Bureau Insurance has supported education and community involvement in Arkansas for more than 65 years.
