Athlete of the Year program

From September to April, one Athlete of the Week is selected. Applicants must be a high school senior, have a minimum GPA of 3.5 and display a history of athletic and academic accomplishments, as well as community/civic involvement. The two students selected from the weekly winners as Athletes of the Year in May each receive a $1,000 scholarship.

Our 2013-2014 Athlete of the Year campaign powered by Huntsville Hospital Sports Center, TOC Sports and D1 Sports Training is underway. We are looking for high school senior student athletes who perform on the field, in the classroom, as well as contributing to their school, community and society.

To participate in our program, please fill out the nomination form. Applicants must currently be high school seniors, carry a minimum GPA of 3.5, and he or she should have a history of athletic and academic accomplishments, as well as community/civic involvement.

A panel of judges will choose a weekly winner each month from September 2013 through April 2014. Each Athlete of the Week winner is eligible for one of two $1,000 scholarships that will be awarded at the Athlete of the Year Awards Banquet in May 2014.

If you know someone who fits these requirements or you think you are the next Athlete of the Year, please download the nomination form and get started. You could be our next scholarship winner! For more information, call (256) 265-5000.
