This is Week 10 of the high school football regular season.

Through the weeks we have taken a look back and saluted the players we felt had the greatest impact on the post Big 11 and Suburban Conference era to date. The two conferences merged in 1998 and there had been 20 years played before this season.

And there have been some really outstanding players during this time. Again, this was not a ranking of the 50 best, just a countdown. Today wraps up that countdown and we have done something a little special for the final five players who will be revealed in this post.

Before we move ahead, here is a special recap of the players who were already named to this collection.
