Because we feel that hard work and dedication should be recognized, for the first time ever, the Buckeye Prep Report will recognize athletic and academic excellence via post-season awards for the top players, coaches and teams. Selction for these awards are based on 2016 performances. Specifically, an awards ceremony will be conducted on day one of the Buckeye Prep Elite Showcase, recognizing Player, Coach and Teams of the Year in grades 5th-8th (2023-2020). In addition, awards will be extended to First Team All-Ohio and All-Academic selectees. At the conclusion of the awards ceremony complete lists of awards recipients will be published at the event and on the Buckeye Prep website. Although only “First Team” selectees will receive plaques, many other players will be recognized for standout performance on the court and in the classrooms. For the most part, the awards are limited to Ohio residents with only a few exceptions. Congratulations in advance to our awards recipients!
