Boys Basketball Player of the Year Nominees

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. We will whittle this list down to a group of finalists, and allow the public to vote on ONE LAST FINALIST before our panel determines the Player of the Year.
