Lew Morris of the Roundtable said this year's nominees are a fine group of athletes.
"It's always a tough decision to pick the athletes," Morris said. "We have a committee and we work hard and look at a lot of the things they've done. It's not an easy process. We are happy to do this for the kids in our community."
