2022 Athlete of the Year Awards
Lehigh Valley Orthopedic Institute held its ninth annual Athlete of the Year awards program on May 24 2022. Former Philadelphia Eagles running back Darren Sproles will speak during the event, providing inspiration to area student-athletes.
The Athlete of the Year event is the culminating celebration of the Athlete of the Week program, sponsored by Lehigh Valley Orthopedic Institute. The 35-week program, featured in The Morning Call, gives the public an opportunity to vote for three male and female student-athletes weekly. Each weekly winner receives a $500 scholarship.
In addition to the weekly scholarships, Lehigh Valley Orthopedic Institute awards one female and one male Athlete of the Week winner with a $10,000 scholarship. All weekly winners are eligible for the top prize, which is determined based on academics, community leadership and athletic accomplishments.
In addition to the Athlete of the Year winners, other non-monetary awards were announced during the broadcast including Comeback Athlete of the Year, Coach of the Year presented by The Morning Call and the Community Support Award presented by PBS39.
Lehigh Valley Orthopedic Institute’s Athlete of the Year is the region’s largest scholarship program for student-athletes with nearly $400,000 in scholarships being awarded since it began in 2013. Congrats to this year's winners!
