    Ross deserves the win, he’s a great athlete but also Derek Vanevery. He is a huge presence in the locker room that can only help a team.

    Where is Blayne Oliver’s name?

    • comment-avatar

      Definitely a notable omission and an athlete in our area worthy of a lot of praise this year. Blayne IS doing awesome in Trenton. It’s no slight to him. He could have easily been a nominee.

    I want to remind everyone their comments are to be of positive support for an athlete, and used as a vote.

    I’ve had to edit or trash 4 comments in the last hour alone making fun of local athletes. Won’t happen here so save it.

    Quin Cannella deserve the W here bud has the heart of a lion untameable by anything man. The way his feet strike the ground in a tremble of terror left foot right foot throughout the race. I’ve seen grown men scared to race him.

    Quinn Cannella is one of the most dedicated athletes I have known. He has been committed to his love of running and sports since he was very young. His dedication to having a healthy mind and body and his commitment to training daily is inspiring! He has represented Chatham- Kent, his school, Ontario and Canada across the globe and has made us all very proud of his accomplishments as an athlete! Quinn has also worked with younger aspiring athletes in helping them to train and to achieve their goals. Quinn Cannella is definitely very deserving of this award!

    I vote Quinn Cannella. Definitely a noteworthy entry, as he has represented chatham, Ontario, and even Canada in such a short amount of time (within the past 3 years). Outstanding person on and off the track; coaches children a couple times a week. 4 OFSAA medals, Team Ontario, Team Canada (CONI Giochi della gioventu)…how can’t you vote for this kid?

  • comment-avatar

    FYI. I can see when you try to post multiple comment votes even when you change your name or email address.

    Lots of people trying to “sneak” in multiple votes. One vote per person per computer per household.

    Start emailing friends and family if you want more votes.

    VOTING CLOSES SUNDAY! FINAL FOUR ANNOUNCED TUESDAY.

    What does it take to be a world-class athlete? Drive. Discipline. Competitiveness. Self-Confidence. Focus. Commitment. Time Management. Raw Talent. Determination. Adaptability. Quinn Cannella has all of these qualities and more. Since I have known Quinn, he always strives to be in the zone of excellence in all he does. I have never personally known anyone more devoted and committed to knowing what he wants and excelling at it. Quinn is no “one hit wonder”. Watch out world, Quinn is here for the long run.

    Joe Raaymakers is in my opinion, the strongest candidates for this position. This 16 year old young gentleman is the embodiment of the spirit of this award. He has shown that Chatham can produce a fine ambassador as well as an excellent athlete.
