Top Dawg Athlete of the Week is a weekly honor given out by the

every Wednesday night. Student/athletes are considered based
on accomplishments from games the previous week before the
Show (Mon-Sat). Any high school athlete from our KBRX
coverage area is eligible. Once chosen, an athlete will not be
eligible for two months, or until the conclusion of the current
sports season. Since we cannot cover all sporting events,
listeners and fans are encouraged to submit their nominations to
us. If you have a nomination, please fill in the form at the bottom
of the page, send it to us via e-mail to sports@kbrx.com,
mark@kbrx.com, fax it to us at 336-3585, or simply tell a member
of the Sports Department. Please include a reason why this
athlete is deserving of the honor of Top Dawg, and include any
stats or other significant achievements that may apply.

Please contact us if you have questions or comments about the Top Dawg Athlete of the
Week. Thank you for helping us honor the area athletes who are deserving of recognition for
their efforts in representing their schools and communities.
