ATHLETE OF THE YEAR

AOTY-newLogo.webp

Each year, the Alabama State Games honors athletes based on participation in the Games and other athletic and community achievements. The Athlete of the Year program, affectionately dubbed "AOTY" by those in the know, was established to recognize individuals who excel above and beyond their athletic participation in the Games. 4 athletes are chosen to fill the categories of: ​

  • Female Athlete 19 & older

  • Male Athlete 19 & older

  • Female Athlete 18 & younger

  • Male Athlete 18 & younger

Individuals are chosen based on overall achievements, involvement in the Games, involvement in their community, effort, sportsmanship, overcoming adversity and attitude on and off the field. Nominations can be submitted by coaches, commissioners, tournament directors, parents, volunteers, and even other players. 

*2023 AOTY nominations are now closed.*
