BLITZ Wrestler of the Year Nominees

SBT Generic digital ad (2)

The  2017-18 Wrestling season brought us some great joy, with Commerce continuing its prowess in the sport and Lumpkin County among the other teams to reach great heights. However, all teams had those individuals that also stood above the rest. For that, we unveil our 10 BLITZ Wrestler of the Year nominees & honorable mentions!

NOTE: Coaches nominated their top wrestler(s), and for those who didn’t provide anything, we have nominated some as well. If there is a glaring absence of someone you feel is a top performer on their team, please email us at brian@blitzsportsga.com and we’re more than happy to look into adding that player.

VOTING: Voting for these wrestlers is NOT public. The BLITZ Voting Panel, consisting of nearly 20 sports media gurus, former coaches/players, GHSA officials and more will vote on our POY Finalists that will come from this pool.

    • Thanks for the comment! As noted, player of the year awards are not publically voted on. We have a panel that will narrow this group to finalists and then vote for the winner. Thanks for asking!
