You've read the bios, or at least, you've got no excuse for not doing so, and now it's time to choose. I leave the selection of the Cavalier of the Year in your capable hands. For a refresher, here's a link to each of the candidates:
Morgan Brian - Women's soccer
Jasmine Burton - Volleyball
Elly Buckley - Field hockey
Mark Cockerton - Men's lacrosse
Danielle Collins - Women's tennis
Alex Domijan - Men's tennis
Joe Harris - Men's basketball
Nathan Kirby - Baseball
JB Kolod - Men's diving
Denny McCarthy - Men's golf
Kevin Parks - Football
Nick Sulzer - Wrestling
Courtney Swan - Women's lacrosse
There's a national champion here, there's a national player of the year, several conference players of the year, one conference freshman of the year, multiple all-Americans, and I'd say no fewer than three who can legitimately be called the best to ever suit up for UVA at their sport.
(That bears repeating: Three of these athletes, and honestly, the potential is there for more depending on how they do later on, are UVA's best in our history. That's truly outstanding.)
A few requests, which are the same every year;
-- One person, one vote, please. Honor system.
-- If you so fervently believe in your chosen candidate that you want to campaign for them, I have no problem with this. I encourage this. But I'd appreciate a note in the comments with a link, especially if you're doing so on Facebook, so I can follow along.
-- As always, I get to interpret the voting how I like, of which the most probable outcome by far is that there's a shared award. I trust this doesn't offend anyone. It hasn't yet.
Voting will close on Thursday, July 23 at 5:00 PM, so that I can get busy writing up the winner and then spend one weekend relaxing before it's actually time to start the football previews.
