The Greater Omaha Sports Committee announces an all new Nebraska High School All State Program. We plan to recognize and honor the Nebraska High School All State athletes. There will be highlights, featured speakers, keynotes, and awards presented at luncheons throughout the year. The Greater Omaha Sports Committee plans to honor each high school All State Athlete for being selected as the recipient of their Sport for that particular season. The Program is for All State Athletes from all classes of Nebraska for that sport that are recognized as the All State players as selected by the Omaha World Herald. For each sport we will honor the All State Athletes with a luncheon for their contributions and play in that sport. Some sports will be combined for the luncheon. See attached listing of Sports that have All State Athletes announced by the OWH. (These sports do not include the sports that have individual champions, specific State Champions that have already won State in those sports).
