Cross Country Featured Player of the Year

Boys Cross Country Runner of the Year nominees

It was an incredible run (pun intended) by many of our local programs. All of them had various degrees of success, but all had a runner or two that consistently led their team. Here are the official 18 Runner of the Year nominees (alpha order).

WHAT’S NEXT? We will narrow this pool down to a finalist group of no more than 6. Our official BLITZ Voting Panel will then vote Heisman-style for the winner of the award.
