Coaches: Nominate Athletes of the Week

With the fall season now in full swing, The Baltimore Sun will honor one boy and one girl each week as Athletes of the Week. Their pictures, along with recaps of their previous week, will appear each Wednesday in the paper. You can see this week’s picks in Wednesday's paper or right here on

We’d like to remind coaches to nominate their players for consideration. We know there are many more deserving athletes than we receive nominations. The more top-notch performances we know about each week, the better choices we can make. The process is simple. We have a telephone line open 24/7 and we accept nominations until 6 p.m. Sunday.

Because only coaches or their representatives can nominate athletes, we won’t give out the number here. Last season, a coach apparently passed out the number, because we received about 20 nominations for the same athlete. That really doesn’t help. This isn’t American Idol. One call is enough.

Coaches and athletic directors should have the phone number. If not, contact the reporter who handles your sport or any one of us.

I do not understand how Blackwell from Arundel get player of the week with the Baltimore Sun when the kids Demond Brown from Annapolis High had 254rushing yards 4touchdown and only 16carrier and he was the player of the week for the Capitol paper so what happen with the Baltimore Sun not making him Player of the week he did a great job and his G.P.A is 4.15 email me back with why he was not Player of the week....
