As a result of this achievement, Christian Whiteside is among a select group of players who are eligible to be selected as a national Old Spice Player of the Year and be honored in a full-page feature in USA Today.
For the tenth straight year, Old Spice® is recognizing high school football players who go above and beyond the call of duty. The program honors athletes who are able to elevate their play and step up when the heat is really on. These athletes embody leadership, performance and desire, and serve as examples to their teammates on and off the field.
High school coaches across the country are naming one player from their team as their Player of the Year. Each team’s Player of the Year will receive a certificate to acknowledge his accomplishment.
He was also eligible to be named one of 50 national Players of the Year. The top 50 players nationwide will be named Old Spice Players of the Year and will receive a plaque and other awards.
The Old Spice Player of the Year program is nationally sponsored by Procter & Gamble, the makers of Old Spice® Deodorant. The program is created and managed by 360 Youth, LLC, an Alloy company.
