Preps Magazine is once again sponsoring its athlete of the week award, called the Edge MVP, sponsored by Edge Homes.
Each week, the magazine selects five candidates as nominees for the athlete of the week. Voting takes place Monday through Sunday night on their website. Winners are announced Monday, following the voting process.
At the end of the school year, Preps Magazine draws the name of a male and female student athlete from among the weekly winners. These two athletes will receive a $1,000 college scholarship from Edge Homes and Preps.
This week, Carbon High cross country star Garrett Marsing is one of the candidates. Marsing captured the Region 3A state title on Oct. 23 with a time of 16:02, making him the first Carbon Dino to do so since 1972.
Community members are encouraged to log on and vote for the Carbon High athlete at www.prepsmag.com. Marsing’s name will appear at the bottom left of the home page. Here, votes may be submitted, but do so by Sunday evening to ensure each vote counts.
