On-field excellence can bring fame and fortune to athletes all over.
But a unique name can be vital to the brand.
Some of the most famous and successful athletes in the world such as Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, and Tiger Woods have become synonymous with just their first names.
Names can represent meaning (Kareem Abdul-Jabbar changing his name from Lou Alcindor), family (Serena and Venus Williams) and go beyond the person and become known for sparking something greater (Billie Jean King, Jackie Robinson).
As the 2018-19 school year comes to a close, USA TODAY HSS takes a look at some of the top boys athletes’ names in the senior class.
It’s up to you to decide your favorite.
The winner will be announced on June 5 at 2 p.m. ET.
