Male Most Outstanding Athlete of the Year (Year by Year)

The Most Outstanding Athlete of the Year is awarded to a student athlete who is an exceptional team player and/or team MVP. He or she will have superior athletic achievements, particularly those recognized by a respective athletics association (Canada West/USPORTS, Pacwest/CCAA, etc.). National recognition will be weighted more heavily than conference recognition. Leadership on and off the competitive surface and academic good-standing are also criteria. Coaches can nominate more than one student athlete for the award.
