BLITZ Softball Player of the Year Finalists

We took a solid group of 26 excellent Player of the Year nominees, and came up with a finalist group of 6. From this elite group, we have an internal voting panel that will vote Heisman-style to determine the winner of the 2021 Softball Player of the Year award. This year’s finalist group consists of 2 seniors and 4 underclassmen.

The finalists are: Layne Bailey (Dawson), Sierra Burnette (Union), Carson Hobbs (Commerce), Taylor Spivey (Jefferson), Taylor Wade (Habersham), and Gabby Whiddon (White).
