Clarkston High School senior Josh Luther was selected for the 2018 Football Academic All-State Dream Team.
Athletes are chosen for the dream team by the Michigan High School Football Coaches Association. It is an elite group of 28 scholar athletes nominated by their head coach and picked based upon grade point average and ACT/SAT score.
Academic All-State Co-Chair Alan Boydston explained in a letter the Academic All-State group is different than others because it is an individual award and not base upon the school’s MHSAA division
