With the conclusion of the 2018-19 mat season, we reveal our BLITZ Wrestler of the Year nominees. We took at least one per program, and placed many just-as-deserving on the Honorable Mention list.

From this prestigious group, we will soon narrow down to a small finalist pool that will be voted on by an internal panel to determine our Wrestler of the Year. We are guaranteed a new winner this year as last year’s winner, Chase Forrester, graduated from Commerce and went on to the next level.

    • Thanks for asking. For Players of the Year, we don’t leave that up to public voting because it can become a popularity contest. We have a voting panel made of sports producers, former coaches and players and GHSA officials who vote Heisman style to determine the winner. Hope this helps!
