Every Tuesday during our 11:00 news, First Coast News recognizes an athlete of the week.  This award is open to all local high school student-athletes from any sport.

Here are some of the criteria we look for in deciding who gets this weekly recognition:

- Outstanding achievement in athletics

- Outstanding achievement in academics

- Outstanding achievement in community service

- Someone who has overcome adversity (i.e. recovery from injury, loss of a loved one, mental or physical handicap, etc.)

If you know of someone who deserves to be honored by First Coast News, please take a minute to fill out this nomination form.

The young men and young women that are chosen as our athlete of the week will be featured in a TV story on Tuesday nights during the 11:00 news.  The recipients will also get a commemorative plaque, and there is a possibility that they will be invited to attend a banquet at the end of the school year.

Every Friday night on Sideline 2013, we also recognize a band member or band of the week and cheerleader or cheerleaders of the week.

If you'd like to nominate and individual or a group of students for this weekly recognition, please send us an e-mail at  You can also submit photos of the nominees to that e-mail address as well.
