Vote for Cover2’s Player of the Year Awards

2014 Cover 2 Awards

Voting is open for Cover2’s 2017 Player of the Year Awards! You can vote as many times as you want until Nov. 13.

Winners will be announced on the season finale of Cover2 on Nov. 16, as decided by a panel of voters representing Oahu, Maui, Kauai, Hawaii Island, and the online viewer vote at KHON2.com.

All student athlete finalists are eligible for the Marcus Mariota Award as State Player of the year. Endorsed and approved by the Tennessee Titans quarterback and his family, the honor has been awarded annually to Hawaii’s most outstanding high school football player since 2015.

The award’s recipient will be selected by Cover2’s panel and the Mariota family, and recognized as a player who demonstrates both athletic performance and personal character, a reflection of the ability and integrity shown by the Saint Louis graduate on and off the field.
