The 2020-21 season is a closed book for our local programs. We reached out to all the coaches to receive their nominations for BLITZ Player of the Year. Here are our 2020-21 nominees and honorable mentions. From this list, we will whittle it down to a finalist pool of 5-6.

NOTE – these are NOT for public voting. BLITZ will take the list down to 5-6 finalists before letting the public vote on ONE LAST FINALIST…then our voting panel votes on those finalists for Player of the Year
