By Ray Hamill — A big thank you to everyone who took the time to send us their nominations for the HumboldtSports.com end of year awards over the past couple of weeks.
Thanks to the overwhelming response from our readers, we have compiled strong fields of candidates in all four categories, including Male and Female Athletes of the Year, Team of the Year and Coach of the Year.
These awards are open to any local athlete, team or coach who enjoyed success on the sports front during this calendar year and are not limited to high school sports.
Voting will be open to our readers to decide who wins each award and will begin in the middle of next week.
Readers can vote up to once a day until New Year’s Eve, when we will announce the winners along with HumboldtSports.com’s Sportsperson of the Year for 2021.
