South Georgia is home to countless premier individuals, teams, and athletic programs, so you can imagine just how difficult it was to narrow down and select the top male and female athletes in every sport. There were many deserving nominees within each sport, but with the help of local coaches, players, and fans, our ITG Next team assembled what we consider to be an extremely worthy group of individuals.
On May 16, 2018, we gathered the top athletes in South Georgia together in Downtown Valdosta for a night of recognizing their incredible talents, efforts, and support systems. Surrounded by their peers, families, coaches, and fans, each of these outstanding student-athletes was awarded for their accomplishments.
Before the awards ceremony started, everyone shared a meal together and heard an inspiring message from Mike Helfer, Valdosta State University mens head basketball coach.
We want to extend a special thanks to our sponsors for making this banquet possible: Vereen Sports Medicine, Colony Bank, Phoebe, Farah & Farah, Wolson Children’s Hospital, and South Georgia State College.
If you missed the banquet, be sure to head to the ITG Next Facebook or Twitter pages to see more photos and video footage.
