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.
Read about our past Teammate of the Year honorees:
2016 Mack Gentry from Justin Siena High School in Napa, California.
2017 Sydney Demasi from Somerville High School in Somerville, Massachusetts.
We're now accepting nominations for the 2018 Teammate of the Year! The winner will receive a commemorative Teammate of the Year photo plaque, will be featured on the Concussion Legacy Foundation website, and included in a press release distributed to national media. Nominations should be 500 words or fewer.
