The best teammates care more about the health of their teammates than they do about winning or losing. As a way to recognize these special individuals, and as part of Team Up Speak Up, 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.

2016-2017 Mack Gentry from Justin Siena High School in Napa, California.
