As part of the Northern Colorado Sports Awards program, the Coloradoan is honoring varsity athletes every week.

You can nominate an athlete who had a great performance in their sport. All varsity sports participants can be honored as Athletes of the Week.

We will name a male and female athlete each week. Honorees will be chosen Monday and honored in print and online Tuesday. New for the 2016-17 school year, Athlete of the Week winners will automatically be invited to the Coloradoan’s Northern Colorado High School Sports Awards program.

The event (guest speaker and date to be announced soon) at the end of the school year will honor more than 300 student-athletes from Fort Collins, Windsor, Loveland, Greeley, Eaton and Johnstown. Peyton Manning was the guest speaker in May’s inaugural event.

How does one win Athlete of the Week? First they have to be nominated by filling out the form, including information on what that athlete did to make them stand out. This is a weekly award, solely including on-field performances from Monday through Saturday in one week. Anyone can submit a nomination, but any entries without the required information (including headshot of the nominated athlete) won’t be considered. Deadline to nominate an athlete is noon Monday for the previous week of action.

A male and female will be chosen from the nominations. The first award will be handed out Sept. 26 for performances Sept. 19-24. The award will continue every week thereafter through the school year. Remember, this is an award for one period of time and career or full season stats don’t come into play.

At the end of each season the Coloradoan will select All-Area teams, which honor athletes for their overall performance during the season. Those athletes will also receive an automatic invitation to the Northern Colorado Sports Awards Show.
