BLITZ Girls Soccer Player of the Year Nominees

With the conclusion of the 2022 soccer season, we release our nominees for BLITZ Player of the Year. We reached out to all head coaches for a maximum of 6 players from each team to be nominated for this honor. Next, we will narrow the list down to a finalist pool (and allow the public to vote for one nominee to join our finalists). After that, our internal voting panel will vote Heisman-style to determine the winner.

NOTE: Rabun County declined to nominate for POY
