High school sports fans, mark your calendars for June 6.
That’s the date of The Tennessean Sports Awards, presented by Farm Bureau Health Plans, honoring more than 100 of the region’s top high school athletes.
The inaugural Middle Tennessee Sports Awards, presented by Farm Bureau Health Plans, was held May 26 at the Music City Center. Former NFL quarterback Peyton Manning was the guest speaker at the event, which attracted more than 1,100.
The site of the 2017 event will be announced soon.
“It was a privilege to take part in the 2016 Middle Tennessee Sports Awards and we are equally excited to be a part of this year’s event,” said Anthony Kimbrough, Chief Executive Officer of Farm Bureau Health Plans. “We appreciate the opportunity to recognize the hard work our student-athletes put in both on the field and off — along with their parents, teachers and coaches. These athletes are the future of our local communities, and Farm Bureau Health Plans is proud to celebrate their accomplishments.”
Blackman’s Crystal Dangerfield and Brentwood Academy’s Jeremiah Oatsvall were named the Top Female and Male Athletes of the Year at the 2016 event. More than two dozen other athletes were awarded trophies as the MVP’s of their individual sports. Other honors went to the top coach, as well as individual inspirational, courage and community awards.
Details for tickets will also be announced at a future date. The guest speaker for the 2017 event will be named in the coming months.
