We all know the best teammates are those who always have their teammates' backs. As a way to recognize these special individuals, and as part of Team Up Day, we have created the "Teammate of the Year" Award. We're looking for student-athletes who have demonstrated exemplary concussion awareness; particularly, the student-athletes who have reported another teammate displaying concussion signs to a coach, trainer, doctor, and/or captain, and have protected that teammate from further injury.
Later this year, the Concussion Legacy Foundation will select the Teammate of the Year. The winner will be featured on the Concussion Legacy Foundation website, included in a press release distributed to national media, and will receive a personalized photo plaque. Nominations should be 500 words or fewer. View official rules.
