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.
Read about our 2016 Teammate of the Year, Mack Gentry, from Justin-Siena high school in Napa, Califoria.
The 2017 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.
