Gatorade Player of the Year candidates are judged on athletic production and impact in the current season. Contenders also must demonstrate high academic achievement and exemplary personal character, including volunteerism, sportsmanship and community leadership. Senior status has no bearing on a candidate’s merit and selections are made independent of ESPNHS recruit rankings. That being said, success in the postseason will have a bearing on the selection process. Hawaii has already completed its state tournament, so our winner could be lurking among the All-State Tournament selections.
