the basis of three criteria: Athletic Achievement — success made at the club, national
or international levels of competition, and standout performances in their respective
sport. Includes statistical production, honors, skill-set evaluation, leadership
ability, overall impact on team success and historical context of accomplishments.
Academic Excellence — review of GPA and class rank, as well as SAT and ACT scores,
academic honors and distinctions. Exemplary Character — overall sportsmanship, but
also membership and participation in positive activities that demonstrate commitment
to character and community.
State Player of the Year award winners are eligible for the Gatorade National Player
of the Year award in their respective sports.
